We ponder leaping into the great yonder on this chilly Saturday.
In case you kids didn’t know- SNAFU means Situation Normal, All Fracked Up. Except you know fracked is a 2000’s word! So they may have used a very unladylike word in its place…
Speaking of SNAFU- we open in Russia during World War II, with the good Doctor Ivchenko. He is summoned to use his psychological powers to help a wounded soldier feel no pain. Imagine that perfect day in the park, playing chess with dear mother…Now let’s cut off your leg…
Sheala: Have you thought about what the next theme should be?
Brandon: YES! I have!
(several hours later…)
Brandon: Otherworldly snacks Or mash-ups?
Sheala: Mash ups like pop mash OR idea mash or what. Otherworldly meaning alien?
Brandon: Idea mash.Change “otherworldly” to strange snacks” so it can apply to just about anything!
Sheala: Let you know tomorrow!
Sheala: (Aside: unusual food won’t include Simba sandwiches will it? I find that disturbing)
Brandon: No. A lot of people were disturbed by it. But here’s what I mean by Unusual Food: what would a monkey chef make? What would a hippo put in pancakes? A dragon foodie? Xenomorph snacks?
What dish would cause octopi to use chopsticks? Ewok iron chef? Cake masters, but with mice?
Sheala: Ah. Food with characters. Good. I was thinking save mash-ups for later. Make it so!
Brandon: You’re not my coal mine supervisor!
On with the show!
Brandon: I imagine Darth Vader would find some joy in tea. It’s liquid and easy for him to take in, as opposed to solid food. Plus, he’d need some sort of simple pleasure, what with being in thrall to an evil empire and his, um, wrong paths in life.
Sheala: eat dessert first!!
Hey, Doreen here again, that nice smart character that was killed off in Season 1 of Helix. Now I’m just floating around the afterlife, watching my bozo CDC co-workers bumble around in Season 2 and sharing my thoughts. Because man do these people need some help.
