The Cleave Gag Hall of Fame (part 1)

The Cleave Gag Hall of Fame (part 1)

Effective? Let's not go there, and just admit that they're very pretty.


If last week was our shout-out to the tape gag fans, this week it's time to celebrate the trusty cleave gag!

But if we thought choosing from over 1,200 tape gag scenes on this site would be a challenge, choosing from over 1,400 cleave gag scenes would be an even bigger one—so once again we turned to YouTube poster Top10* for inspiration. This baker's dozen scenes should get the party started, but as always, we'd love to hear your suggestions (publicly or privately) for which scenes to feature when Part 2 rolls around. 

In the meantime, we'll be adding a few more stragglers from Top10*'s list to the site over the next week.

One other note: while we largely respect their choices, it seems they're not big fans of the knotted cleave gag. But we are, and we've got over 80 of those scenes available for the viewing, which subscribers can find simply by entering "knotted cleave" into the search bar. Have fun!
