Controversial talk show host and noted conspiracy theorist Alex Jones got a little, er, animated during his interview(?) with Piers Morgan. Jones is one of the firearm advocates behind the White House petition to have Morgan deported for attacking the second amendment. Regardless of your stance on gun control, it's worth a watch, if only to see Jones freak out and challenge Morgan to a fight before sarcastically answering a question with, "How many chimpanzees can dance on the head of a pin?" He also offers up gems like:

"1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms."

"The  number one cause of death is suicide, now, because they give people suicide mass murder pills!"

"[Britain's] got hordes of people burning cities and beating old women's brains out every day."

"America was born on guns and whiskey."

"How many great white sharks eat people? But, they're still afraid to swim."

UPDATE: Alex Jones has posted his personal account of what happened behind the scenes at CNN. He says he made one of the producers cry and was told to leave even though he'd been promised a third segment. He says that undercover cops were following him and that a "big, mean Bloomberg" detective got in his face. According to Jones, the undercover cops looked like they were from Goodfellas.
