I have recently really forgotten what was one of the prime motivators for me starting this whole hay-wagon (do people say that?).
I still guffaw at some of this stuff, I out-loud-laugh. Honestly, it's head-shaking, tear-inducing hilarity, in my opinion. My very first post was inspired by a piece of paper I picked up which read, "No pliars are available." I knew I didn't write it, Marci doesn't really utilize pliers a lot, so I knew one of the boys had written it. It struck me as so funny and odd and silly...
Well, whaddya say we get this hay-wagon started? (They do now.)
Let's start with these two guys. I know, their cartoon starts on Disney in a few weeks. It's called "Pinky and Sparrowboy" and you'll just have to wait like all the other kids to find out what their story is.
And then there is this which I believe is a sea creature of the cucumber variety or a winged Christmas ornament:
This is obviously...
...the prototype of this:
Which is clearly a "Mangaloonable."
mangaloonable - \mahn-ja-loon-ə-bəl\ - noun : the inevitable result of forcing pressurized air into a children's graphic novel, never used in parades. adj : the capacity for spontaneous, silly, yet inexplicable, pressurization. His was a mangaloonable existence.
(It's no way to live.)
You might remember the discussion about alien-dogs I was having with Nick in my previous post. Well, he and Zack decided that it would be fun to design "space-houses" for them.
That's Nick's there on the left, Zack's is on the right. Now, mind you, the whole notion of "space-houses" for "alien-dogs" is just about as odd as it gets (well, not really...), but what really strikes me is the similarity of design. I can only guess there is a universality of need here to which I had hitherto not been hip. Yep, there's only one way to build an alien-dog house, we all know that.
