The blues they sent to greet me won't defeat me


It's raining raining raining. It rained rained rained yesterday as I was looking at places to potentially buy. A good test to see if water runs inside anywhere. It was a disconcerting day. I have to rethink my choices...

But, I was met at the end of the day with a home cooked dinner (I really want my friend to be my wife - she's great), and a few episodes of Robot Chicken. Now, I was all gung ho about Robot Chicken because of one excellent episode a while back, but it was disappointing since then. Until last night. Most of it sucked, but one thing was great. Snort worthy.

Two guys floating in the space shuttle, complaining about the food rations. "NASA food sucks!". One guy says "Hey, I know what can make this food better. Hey KoolAid!" And the KoolAid creature comes busting through the rear, and of course they all get sucked out into space to die.

Then later, two guys are in a bomb shelter type thing, having avoided being killed and eaten by zombies. There's tons of food on the shelves, but one guy thinks it needs something. "Hey KoolAid!" And KoolAid creature comes busting in, but it's a zombie and so it eats the heads off the guys and blood comes gushing out.

It's so sick, but I'm laughing just writing about it.

Part of the reason I love KoolAid creature is that there's a memory from when I was the token female of a group of 4 guys (I was dating one of them). Someone in the neighborhood was silly enough to leave a huge Mr. KoolAid on his front porch. Just begging to be stolen. So, we did! It's really difficult to run with a huge KoolAid creature. And difficult to fit it into a car. And difficult to hide it once you have it. Of course we didn't keep it, but it was so much fun stealing it. (my only such experience, btw. I'm a good girl..)

If he's holding a pitcher of KoolAid, does that mean he's a cannibal? Does he ever drink it?

Hey, I've never thought about it like that. He's giving away his blood to kids, right? it's really kind of sick.

So that makes him a vampire?

Or, perhaps, a deity?

Ughhh...Koolaid. The thought of anything makes me want to get sick again right now.

I love Kool-Aid...especially "red!" Susan...what the heck? Kool-Aid was a major specialty when I was growing up...the more sugar the better!

NoRegrets said...

I like that. 'red'. Not a flavor, but a color...

I watched that the other night too. I was cracking up because Robot Chicken is one of those under rated funny shows.

i always thought of it as a 'body of christ' kinda thing. he was giving of himself to save the world from thirst.

kiddo, just add gin or vodka. it's good stuff then. :-)

Regarding cannibalism, I think everyone else has covered that ground, so I'll leave my clever remarks to myself.

Wish you could send some of that rain my way; there's a huge fire in the 'gunks right now.

I laugh my ass off whenever I watch Robot Chicken; I remember the Kool Aid one, and I'm giggling maniacally just thinking about it. Seth Green = genius!

Tera said...

Oh yeah, and this SO helped me with my post today...even the picture!

NoRegrets said...

There's another robot chicken I saw too - with a gummy bear caught in a bear trap. Friggin Hilarious!!!!!

And heather, it's amazing that he never runs out. Unless...you know... it's kind of like urine for us... ewwww...

Tera, you know I live to help you post.
