Astronecks....

…. early-afternoon and the kitchen is clean, the Sun is shining, my spaghetti sauce is slowly percolating on the stove, and a University of Tennessee grad is piloting the Space Shuttle…. SpongeBob and Mr. Crab just finished trying to poison a food inspector with a Krabby Patty that they’d swished around in a commode…. I tell you, gentle rubberneckers, it’s one helluva way to spend a Friday morning….

… anywhoo, I write this post only to quickly point out the creative genius of the writers of SpongeBob… just now, sitting here while the Wife giggled incessantly in the living room, I heard a great little tidbit that I just feel overwhelmingly compelled to share… check this out....

SpongeBob: Oh no, Mr. Crab!... We killed him!
Mr. Crab: What do you mean WE, SpongeBob?! It was YOU who served him that crabby patty!
SpongeBob: Oh no! I didn’t know it would kill him, Mr. Crab!
Mr. Crab: That’s right, SpongeBob! It’s off to the stony lonesome for you!

… good God, how marvelous… “stony lonesome”….. I just love that term…. using language like that is almost as delicious to me as my spaghetti sauce, I swear….

…. And the more and more that I think about that Tennessee astronaut, I can’t help but wonder where they let him hang his gunrack in the space shuttle…

…. I can almost picture it now….. “Uh, Houston?.... Yeah, we’ve got’er docked with the International Space Station juuuuuust fine…. I’m just gonna put her up on some cinder blocks and then I’ll be ready to initiate that ole shutdown procedure… “…. ahhh, I'm just kidding... it's good to see a Volunteer reaching such heights..... figuratively AND literally....

Bullshit So Far

Oh no, you're regressing into SpongeBob world...I've been there unwittingly for a few years with the kids.

Shiver me timbers! Another SpongeBob aficionado!

My favorite SpongeBob line of all time is at the end of the notorious "Hash-Slinging Slasher" episode.

"Nosferatu!"

I'm sure there's a big orange "T" plastered on the back window of the shuttle. Jesus....neanderthals from the Orange Den of Iniquity go sub-orbital.

Do I hear the strains of "Good ole' Rockytop, Rockytop, Tennessee"? Yeehaw. With the financial bastions falling, maybe it should be Tom Waits singing "Hey little bird, fly away home, your house is on fire your children are alone". Jockey full of bourbon...

After almost 50 years in space, it was a no brainer that the job would eventually befall a UT grad. Better late than never, I guess.

SpongeBob? I've never seen it, but from what I understand, it is a walking, talking sponge.

I'm thinking that maybe you need a stamp collection or some shit.

Where the hell did the put the white painted used tires so he could line the shuttle up to dock?

Spongebob is awesome! I've only seen about 5-10 eps (I'm sure they're available on YouTube), because I don't have cable, but that doodie-shaped character named Patrick is very cool. I am so liking the whole "It's a big old goofy world" theme you have going on lately. Keep it up!

"...that doodie-shaped character named Patrick is very cool..."

WTF?!!?

Patrick is not "doodie-shaped." He's a frickin' starfish, fer cryin; out loud. He's...starfish-shaped.

Good Lord. I'm LOL at Erica and Elisson. You can't make this shit up. Heh.

Bullshitted by Bou on August 10, 2007 09:10 PM

Heheheh... yeah, Erica. Starfish shaped doodie? That's got to hurt...

See, and to me he looks like a pink steamer with arms and legs. Tell me you just can't see that. He is very adorable though. On that we can all agree, can we not?

T1G, I actually wrote a post about that very topic:
