You know, we all invented the "Meme" 20 years ago.  Let's post some of those classics here!

 

I'll get you started with the original Star Wars gangsta rap:

 

 

Or how about this classic "All Your Base Are Belong To Us"

Just paste the URL in your message body.  It won't show up as a video until you "Post".

Greenween if you hilight the url of the YouTube video, copy the url and paste the url link into the text box, it will turn it into an embedded YouTube video after you press "Post". Until you do that it just looks like a hyperlink.

Try "control c" to copy, and "control v" to paste.
