I am watching The Magic School Bus with my little brother. We are bonding.

So far children have been turned into bats, a parent-teacher conference has been held at night in a creaking castle, and a semi-sentient bus has entered a B-movie in order to save the class lizard from being eaten by a giant praying mantis. And we've only seen two episodes. I forgot how cracked out this show was in all the best ways.

A thought.

One of the problems with small fandoms is that you don't get a lot of variety. For example, the Pirates of the Caribbean fandom is pretty big, to the point where there is "wigshipping"--that is, shipping of people's various wigs. While it's crack, it exists and is amusing.

On the other hand, the Hogan's Heroes fandom has absolutely no Hogan's hat/Klink's deskhelmet slash despite the fact that it's pictured in the credits and is practically canon. I find this deeply unfair.

So, there's been a bit of controversy in Illinois recently. Governor Blagojevich was arrested earlier this week on corruption charges, ranging from trying to sell off Obama's soon-to-be-vacated Senate seat to trying to shake down a children's hospital. This is an obviously cruel and greedy man, quite willing to sell his integrity for fuel money.

Curiously, rumor has it that Rahm Emmanuel (who was involved with him politically in the past) was partially involved in his capture and may have even been the one whose staff tipped off the police. These rumors are unsubstantiated and most likely aren't true but in light of other discussions it does make one think.

There have been no reports of Blagojevich being seen in the company of Palin's ghost, but the way politics have been going these days I honestly would not be surprised. My country has found a whole new vein of weird to tap.

Now that the election is over, a lot of attention has diverted to Obama's future chief-of-staff Rahm Emmanuel and it's starting to make my brain go in odd directions again.

Aside from being a rather attractive gentleman for his age, trained in the art of ballet and a credit to our people, Representative Emmanuel has some...familiar traits.

Emanuel is known for his "take-no-prisoners attitude" that has earned him the nickname "Rahm-bo."[16] Emanuel is said to have "mailed a rotten fish to a former coworker after the two parted ways."[13] On the night after the 1996 election, "Emanuel was so angry at the president's enemies that he stood up at a celebratory dinner with colleagues from the campaign, grabbed a steak knife and began rattling off a list of betrayers, shouting 'Dead! ... Dead! ... Dead!' and plunging the knife into the table after every name."[5][7]

Aggressive and combative even to his closest compatriots, yet closely allied with our young chosen one and slashed with him on an alarmingly regular basis. I think you all know where I'm going with this.

Um. This is basically an amusing image I punted to [ profile] apprentice_lurk while she was languishing at work. The basic premise here is that Scourge, while also bored at work, likes to go online and post mildly altered screenshots of disturbing natures to Autobot fanforums. This is the result.

More crack than a fridge repairman. )

This little snippet is...mostly my fault, although [ profile] navigatorsghost gave me the original idea for Blackheart and the Hidden using instant messenger for certain slashy purposes. No, I don't know how Blackheart got an internet connection down there or how the Hidden got laptops. Just go with it.

Warning. Contains extreme crack and a bit of rough language. Enter at your own risk. )
