memory lane

Still alive. Just busy. Brain’s got nothing for you right now, people.

But, to keep yourself amused, might I suggest a trip down the into the bowels of the archives to some of my favourite Space Monkey Pants posts?

“BOY REACHES HEAVEN UNASSISTED; DEITIES SAY ‘ONE-TIME OCCURRENCE’”

little boy reaches personal heaven

Devin Haskin isn’t the first little boy to find the inside of a toy machine too enticing to resist.

When the 3-year-old Austin, Minn., boy crawled through the discharge chute of a Toy Chest claw machine at a Godfather’s Pizza in his hometown, he ended up on the other side of the glass surrounded by stuffed animals.

Rescuers had to pry the door open to get Devin out, though the boy was in no hurry to leave.

“When we got it open, he didn’t want to come out,” Fire Chief Dan Wilson said Tuesday. “One of my firefighters had to reach inside and get him. He was happy in there.”

Hell, that kid was proably ready to hang drapes.

I feel pretty oh so pretty I feel pretty and witty and zombie tuesday

Do you ever get the feeling the Zombie Tuesday is becoming a little redundant?

It’s like when you were a kid, and Mother’s Day or Father’s Day rolled around, and you asked your parents, “Why isn’t there a Kid’s Day?”… and then they said, “Everyday is Kid’s Day!”… and then you fell to the floor spasming, white froth at your mouth, chewing your own tongue to mash… and then they got the Thorazine… and then everything went grey and soft…

Well, now zombies are frickin’ everywhere. Everyday is Zombie Tuesday.

Where does that leave our poor little Zombie Tuesday posts?

Is it time to retire them? Reimagine them? Give Tuesdays to a lesser-known, hungrier-for-the-spotlight mascot?

What say you?

I guess this is who you call when you have Lego Cthulhu squid monsters stopping up your toilet.

Well… him or Aquaman. He could probably help too.
