I'm with the human kid on this one... (02/25)

Postby ZOMBIE USER 7262 on Mon Feb 25, 2002 11:34 pm

Say, does he have a name, Gene? Those kids have shown up several times in the strip, but I don't know they've ever been given names (except Diane, of course)...when Steven comes to Furriston, playing ball before the festival, and again here.

But you know Bob's digging himself an unpopular hole when the kids are starting to get mad at him. Evidently Bob doesn't seem to be aware of the fact that humans can tune into 555 FURadio, or doesn't care...

*switches thread into RP mode* Let's hold a protest outside FURadio's studio!

*starts making signs that read "Biased Birdbrain Must Go" and "We're Not All Evil, Bob!" *

(That oughta shake things up...I'm half-human, half-furry. Teehee.)

I hate to be a downer here, but how do we know he's getting mad at Bob? From what I can tell, Bob has twisted Cotton's remark about having stopped only one bad human into an implication that he's fought a raging fire with a squirt gun. As has been said in another topic, Cotton might also be digging a hole for himself due to his lack of tact. I'm sorry, but I want to be sure we don't jump to overly positive conclusions.

I've had enough of this.

I'm gonna have to do an interview on my station some time. It'll be somewhat music-related. Any volunteers?

I'm really disappointed with Bob! Image He sounds ironic in 2/25 comic.

Only if you'll play "Fish Heads" and "Dead Puppies".

I see your point. It's open to interpretation of why the (as-yet-unnamed-in-strip) kid is getting mad. I interpreted it as, Bob's trying to portray all humans as being evil, and is changing what he says just 'cause Cotton's pressuring him into it during the struggle over who's manipulating who's words.

*continues making signs of protest* Either way, I think we can come to a consensus that Bob, for whatever reason, is being a doof.

*starts making phone calls to get support for the protest*

"Hello?"
"Hey, Gene! It's Elix! Are you busy during your lunch break today?"
"Hmm, maybe. What's up, partner?"

Either Cotton is *very* easily placated, a fool, or letting the attention that's he's getting go to his head. Bob O'Link's anti-human views have been made abundantly clear, as Cotton himself had to "correct" Bob several times during the broadcast. And now Cotton's going to continue to do Bob's show for the forseeable future.

Bob, no doubt, has a plan in which he "converts" Cotton to his way of thinking and then wants Cotton to be the martyr everyone rallies around to end the existance of the "Evil Human Race".

Of course, most martyrs tend to be dead.

Dark times are coming...

Or maybe I should stop listening to the theme of "Key the Metal Idol" when I post things. :grin:

Fish Heads, yes. Dead Puppies, no. (Sorry, I just can't stand that song.)

OK, for Gabriel out in Chicago, here is Barnes and Barnes with Fish Heads!

Fish heads! Fish heads!
Rolly-polly fish heads!
Fish heads! Fish heads!
Eat them up! Yum!

(repeat)

In the morning
Laughing happy fish heads
In the evening
Floating in soup

(repeat chorus)

Ask a fish head
Anything you want to
It won't answer
They don't talk

(repeat chorus)

I took a fish head
Out to see a movie
I didn't have to pay to
Get it in

(repeat chorus)

They don't play baseball
They don't wear sweaters
They're not good dancers
They don't play drums

(repeat chorus)

Rolly-polly fish heads
Are never seen drinking capuccinos
In Italian restaurants
With Oriental women
No.....

(repeat chorus until the end)

(BTW, Fish Heads is the most requested song in Dr. Demento history)

Well, how bout a Barnes and Barnes twin spin?

Here is another song of theirs that was popular on the Dr. Demento show!

I Gotta Get A Fake I.D.

I'm now 16 and I drive a car
I cruise around but I don't get far
They still won't let me in the bars
I gotta get a fake I.D.
I gotta get a fake I.D.

All the girls we know dig older guys
So we got some beards for our disguise
They still don't fall for our brilliant lies
We gotta get a fake I.D.
We gotta get a fake I.D.

No beer, no booze
We're doomed to lose

Gotta get a fake,
Gotta get a fake I.D.
Gotta get a fake I.D.
(false identification)

Well, I burn my bra
And I like my lips
And I wear short skirts
And I move my hips
But all of the guys
That I meet are dips!
I gotta get a fake I.D.
I gotta get a fake I.D.

No beer, no booze
I'm doomed to lose

Gotta get a fake,
Gotta get a fake I.D.
Gotta get a fake I.D.

I drink beer and I drink gin!
There's no bar I can't get in!
I wish I were 16 again!
So I could get a fake I.D.
So I could get a fake I.D.

Oh beer!
Oh booze!
I'm doomed to lose!
Oh beer!
Oh booze!
Doomed to lose!

Gotta get a fake,
Gotta get a fake I.D.
Gotta get a fake I.D.
Yeah!

Actually, as far as I know, martyrdom is something that has death as pre-requisite.

Bill, here are some songs you should play:

Any song by Three Dog Night, but especially "Joy to the World"

"Who Let the Dogs Out?"

"What's New Pussycat?"

1950s-60s R&R is one of my fave types of music.
Lots of nice furry type songs back then. :smile:

I keep wanting to get into the kids names, but
I haven't had the opportunity yet. About all
I can tell you for sure is that the young pup's
name is Eric, after Fetch's RL creator, and
that the little bird girl's actual name is
unpronounceable unless you're a bird of her
species (it's a trilling sound only birds
can make) so she goes by a phonetic nickname.
Eventually I'll work their names into the
comic, I'm sure.

"And if it's Bob O'Link's personality problem,
I'm not sure what to say. Coming from some of
the more dissatisfied furs on the street, Bob
is asking the questions that they feel should
have been asked a long time ago..."

Huh? I wasn't paying attention. What did I do? ::sigh:: Gene, whatever they told you is a lie! I did NOT play My Ding-A-Ling by Chuck Berry on the radio. I know better than that! I don't care if he's singing about a toy, I can't stand that song!

(Out of all his songs, THAT was his only one to hit #1 on the Hot 100?! Couldn't it have been Johnny B. Good instead?)

Three Dog Night! ::grins as he pulls out his Three Dog Night Greatest Hits CD::

::frowns:: Do I have to play just one? This CD has all 11 of their top 10 hits and a 12th song that made it to #15. (Celebrate)

I'm gonna play all 12! (They performed in Connecticut recently) I had this CD in heavy rotation. On the night of 9/11 I listened to this CD so I could fall asleep. (Especially Joy To the World and Black and White)

Who Let the Dogs Out?! ::collapses in a fit of laughter:: Fetch, I LOVE practical jokes!

What's New Pussycat? Ooh....1965's Best New Artist: Tom Jones (excellent in Mars Attacks!)

Hmmm....I think I'll let Gene sing this to CW. :smile:

*gives Gene a hug*
Thanks for putting "me" in the strip, Gene.
Though, he actually looks a bit more like my nephew David (my mom and his mom and my brother all say that David is almost exactly like I was at his age :smile:)
(fyi: David will be 7 next month)

I don't think Gene meant that you were the doof, Bill. And, while I'm sure there's method with you, I doubt there's much in the way of madness (at least no more than in the usual organic). Gene probably just got his proper nouns switched. Happens to a lot of people.

(Out of all his songs, THAT was his only one to hit #1 on the Hot 100?! Couldn't it have been Johnny B. Good instead?)


Don't you know, Bill? Things can't be done the way it should be. That would be too...convenient....

Sounds like a similar situation between the avians' first ambassador to Tellus during the first peace accords. At least your bird girl's nickname should not be as bad as that of the ambassador. His nickname was Rooty Tooty.
He never had a problem with the nickname either (though he could not quite understand why some Tellurians found it amusing...).
