WTF Wednesday - The "Really Trippy Dream" Edition
"Ali Dreams" never make sense. Ever.
Stick with me here...it involves a giant flying purple potato.
I had this really trippy dream where I dreamt that Devo (you know, the Whip it Good guys from the 80's) got really old, but they were still wearing their red Devo hats on their now-gray hair. In my dream they were wearing black short-shorts. Scary. They were sporting black socks pulled up to their knees of their skinny old man legs and they had on knee pads even though they weren't roller skating or anything. My dreams make no sense. Why would old men need knee pads for no good reason???
And instead of whipping something reeeal good, they were singing some crap about "working it out" and their eyes were bugging out of their heads. Then they were shaking like they were being electrocuted which makes sense because there were sparks flying everywhere! Oh my gosh I hope they're OK. Are they being electrocuted by their red hats? Are their brains being sucked out?
Then suddenly there were these bizarre monster-like creatures dressed as superheroes dancing to the Devo music as they watched it on a giant pink TV. One of them only has one eye. I always have bizarre monsters in my dreams. Monsters must like terrible music. Explains a lot.
Oh no! There's the dancing super-hero monsters again! Ahhh. Why won't the monsters leave me alone?
WHOA! Suddenly, the flying Devo potatoes put the giant hat on a freakin' MOUNTAIN and the mountain grew a FACE! Oh wait, it must have been a volcano because it started spewing ice cream sprinkles. SPRINKLES!
And then I woke up.
And of course, by "woke up" I mean "realized that this was an actual episode of Yo Gabba Gabba" and my kids were watching it.
WHO CONCOCTS THIS STUFF? WHAT MIND-ALTERING DRUGS ARE THEY ON? WHY ARE MY KIDS WATCHING IT?
I have long believed that Yo Gabba Gabba is a social experiment to see how horrible and annoying they can make a show and have parents still let their kids watch it.
That is some F*#@ed Up $hit.
