thinglets: Blacque Jacque Shellacque on a Brontodoodle

Okay, in an obvious attempt to suck in the animal lovers with a coy juxtaposition, the UK's Daily Mail found a "cutesy" picture of two deer standing in front of a Drive In Liquor & Lounge in Medicine Bow, Wyoming.

Three things:

  1. Drive In Liquor. YES! 
  2. Just because a deer is in a picture, doesn't make it cute. Would the photo have been consider cute if a flopping salmon was in front of Drive In window? 
  3. WTF is with that logo!?! There's some sort of Blacque Jacque Shellacque character brandishing a pistol riding a miniature dinosaur that most have been an early attempt at cross-breeding a Diploducus or Brontosaurus with a poodle. I'm sensing a new market for Brontodoodles... and are those footprints or mini dino turds behind them?


thinglets: Snack Foods Personified at the Drive-In

Remember the humanizing of food in the Drive In intermission spots? They often say the "toyifying" of animals in mass media has turned young children into unaware pieces of bait as they cease to be fearless of their favorite "Teddy Bears". On a barely related tertiary topic, did anyone every NOT want to eat the food after seeing it personified on the big screen?

You'd get to see Greedy Mr. Popcorn Bag withhold every kernel from the small Hot Butter Cup and then steal all the butter for himself. Watch the militaristic Ice Cream Cups follow blindly behind Major-General Ice Cream Bar. The Red and Blue Soda Cups stuck in lock step for fear of their Ringmaster's wrath.

All I know is that I could not help but enthusiastically blast the car horn when the excited wiener finally dove into the open, inviting hot dog bun. Hey, when you were a kid, you'd take a sexual analogy any way you could... maybe I've said too much.
