Aqua Teen Who Whateys? by Snuppy

mooninitePERHAPS you heard about the brouhaha in Boston a couple of months ago, that was not all that “haha” once the brou was let out of the, er, Beantown bag. What in the wide wide world of farts are we talking about? We have no idea. Apparently we aren’t supposed to prance around late at night in our backyards, clad in little more than large jackets and/or big shoes, especially when it’s freezing cold outside and/or raining, because we get sick. And, when we get sick, we get stupid. S-T-O-O-P-I-D.

Anyway — here’s the 4-1-1 on the brouhaha, as it relates to a new movie, set to a beat you can dance to, but only if you’re wearing shoes that actually fit. *takes swig of Nyquil, swerves to miss dogs* Help us Jeebus, this post is rapidly going to hell in a pair of giant duck boots and/or puffy down jacket.

Master Shake, Meatwad, FrylockLET’S try this thing, again: There’s this show. This very dumb (but seriously hilarious) show called Aqua Teen Hunger Force, that’s about, um, Teens hungry for water forced through some hose that runs under a bridge in Boston. No, that’s not right. Whatever. ATHF is part of the late night “adult” programming on Cartoon Network. It’s funny. And popular, which is why, we suppose, a movie based on its characters is opening in theaters across the country today, called, appropriately and not at all confusingly: AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE COLON MOVIE FILM FOR THEATERS. Looks darn amusing. Amusing, that is, if you’re a 13 year old boy (or, in the case of our son, 23).

WHAT’S all this got to do with anything? Well, some brilliant so-‘n-sos at Cartoon Network’s [adult  swim] crafted a clever parody of ATHF featuring the two “Mooninites” used in that [adult swim] ad-scare, in a 24-like scenario, based on the aforementioned brouhaha. A brouhaha, we hasten to add, that was less “haha” than “Holy crap, we thought it would be funny to fake everyone out with our clever Mooninite light boxes! Who knew anyone would think it was a bomb? Yeesh. We messed up. Still, made ya look!”.

*With luck, you’ll find a Mooninite and/or brouhahaha on humor-blogs.com.

not sure this clip will be funny to anyone who hasn’t seen Aqua Teen Hunger Force and/or 24, but at the moment, and in my current state of sore-throated despair, i kind of don’t care. no offense…. i had actually planned to share a clip from a special series i did for a news program a few years ago, but i haven’t been able to load it up to YouTube just yet. (mostly because my son hasn’t given me the dub i need, in order to do so). all this to say that, instead of Hot Sex, you guys are being subjected to a silly (but hilarious) clip of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and, well, neener neener neeneer *takes another swig of Nyquil, passes out on couch* xox

Aqua Teen Hunger Force is proof positive that it is often a very thin line separating genius and lunacy…Fortunately, I happen to appreciate both. Happy Friday to all and get rid of that sore throat Snuppy!

that last comment was me…forgot who I was for a moment

Comment by BoBo

Ignignot: Let us leave this primitive rock because there’s nothing but cavemen here.
Ur: Say goodbye, cavemen. Go beat rocks together, you sissies! Freakin’ nerds!

Comment by furiousball

That was…….weird! Not surprised your 23 year old likes it though 🙂

Feel better, little pup and tonight let Bobo go look for the dogs:

a) he is a man and tehrefore stronger (*whispers: some beliefs are good to maintain!*)
b) it is Saturday tomorrow and he can sleep in
c) his shoes adn jacket probably fit him better 🙂

Happy Friday to all of us!

Comment by Penguin

Wow. Je ne gets it pas. I hope you feel better, though, or at least less sick.

Comment by Doug

Wow! Beee-zarrr. A whole new channel of programming for me to scrupulously avoid.

Comment by Al

BoBo: thin line, indeed. what side of it are we on, again? (don’t answer… i’m afraid i already know) xox

furiousball: i love “We’ve hacked into your mind, you’re having a party and no one’s showing up”. also that terrifying “Screw of damnation” Ignignokt found behind the “armoire of despair”. funny stuff. weird… but funny. xox

Penguin: hahaha! yeah — that was weird, and our 23 year old is addicted (in fact, he went to see the movie last night) as for Bobo? lovelovelove your logic! i’ll keep that in mind next time. xox

Doug: un jour gets it vous. thanks for you kind wishes, after consuming copious amounts of elderberry, echinacea, and goldenseal, (and Zicam, can’t forget the Zicam) i’ll be better in no time! xox

Al: you say “avoid”, and yet there’s a great deal of cleverness a guy like you would totally appreciate, dude! (seriously, [adult swim] offers up some mighty funny content. except when it’s weird and/or beee-zarrr) 😉 xox

Comment by snuppy

I can’t quite decide if ATHF is funny. It’s like post-post-postmodernist humor. There are so many layers of stuff on top of nonsense on top of other stuff that it makes my brain simultaneously hurt and go numb.

Comment by Diesel

Diesel, don’t think so much – go with the flow. It’s amusing in a very immature sort of way. In other words – funny! Haha!

I didn’t get in until now but I did want to stop and comment nonetheless. Hopefully you’ve also stopped traipsing about in undies in your backyard and you’re feeling better.
