Hello, fellow infrequent-poster.

I, too post rather infrequently.
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

Fuckin' stop what you're doing. Stop it. Right now.

Go track down a copy of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Watch it.

I saw that last year actually. I had seen it as a tadpole, though, so I recognized almost everything. But apparently I did not pay attention to whatever thing in it relates to this. :(

I...buh....it.....hab..... Was it dubbed and culture translated or something? (link to super crappy pretty sure cell phone filming Netflix version of the scene)

I think I was distracted during that scene? Or I went to get a drink or something? Don't hate.

I'm not hating, it just seems like... I dunno, watching Alien and not knowing where that thing on that guy's face came from.

This is getting really confusing.

SecondTalon is referring to Space Balls, not Alien.

The thing on the guy's face comes from Alien. If you watched Alien and you wondered where the thing on a guy's face comes from... then... you watched the movie it comes from. If you're watching Space Balls and you see the Hello Ma Baby scene, that's a parody of Alien.

As for the shave-and-a-haircut thing, it's older than Roger Rabbit. If you wanna know what it comes from, just search the web. But I learned what it was when I was a kid and my parents explained that scene from Roger Rabbit to me, because I didn't quite get the joke (I was probably six or so? I had heard the jingle, just never heard words that go with it).

Or, if you prefer, I can describe the entire sequence so that it will not only be no longer confusing, it'll be no longer funny.

So, I just want this to be on the record, I actually did get this reference even before New User explained it, because I unhealthily watched Space Balls like twenty times as a kid. Also, just so we're really clear here, I know what a goatee is and I know that the thing on the guy's face in Alien means he's the evil alternate-dimension version of Captain Picard. I was not born yesterday.

That's Evil Kirk. Evil Picard has hair.

According to one comic, Evil Picard has a goatee AND a SLEEVELESS SHIRT!

And still has guns. (Apparently Stewart credits his genetics for this. He doesn't put nearly enough work into his biceps to earn them the usual way.)

That is... deeply unsettling.
The scholars tell us that God drives a Plymouth Fury, for it is written in Jeremiah 32:37: "He drove them out of the land in His Fury". But the Twelve Apostles shared a Honda Accord, for it is written in Acts 5:12: "They were all with one Accord".

I went to the rodeo for the first time in like 8 years.

My little cousins are in town, and we decided to do something "Texan" for them.

It's so much fun -- they've got a carnival and the rodeo. It's all almost exactly like I remember it! Except for the fact that they now announce the events using the big screen, as opposed to flags on horses.

What's weird is they don't call the rodeo clowns rodeo clowns anymore -- they're now the "bullfighters".

Also, the freak show is missing from the carnival.

Either way, it's still worth the $20 for a ticket -- between the childhood nostalgia and the actual event.
