Sally Salt Disgusted

A Terrible Person Is Chris, Part 146,000,000

I wondered this morning what would happen if Beavis and Butt-Head learned of the concept of Guy Fawkes Day.

Also, I almost went wide-eyed at the latest American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals "adopt these sad, sad pets" commercial. You thought they were crying-inducing when they used Sarah McLachlan singing "Angel"? The one I just saw uses Sarah McLachlan singing "When She Loved Me." Randy Newman's Toy Story 2 song about abandonment. Holy crap, that's deploying the BIG guns. The big, causing-bawling guns.

So what's my "I'm an awful person" response? I imagined the same footage of dogs and cats to the tune of the chorus of The Bloodhound Gang's "The Bad Touch."
Good Omens

LJ Idol Topic 3: Coprolite

My body continues turning food into what may, possibly, some day, under the right circumstances, become a coprolite as I write this:

Coprolite: A rock that was once food. Maybe humans-from-10-centuries-ago food, maybe dinosaur food from 80 million yeards ago, but all the same, food. That slightly blows my mind. Generally, unless you're Rock Biter or a Horta, rocks are not food. But if trees, mummies, dinosaur bones, mastodon hair and so much more can be preserved in this world, why not this world's excrement -- the once warm, odiferous, (you hope) reasonably soft excrement?

Huh. Zombies may, perhaps, develop coprolites. I just realized this. Who really knows how a body would function after that person's become a zombie? Perhaps what's left in such a body would turn into something much like stone. Maybe THAT is where coprolites came from. (You just imagined zombie dinosaurs. If your mind was blown, I apologize.)
