A Dark Side to Everything

You know, there is a dark side to everything. Look at the Jedi. They were so honorable and awesome with their colored light sabers. They got to speak only in proverbs. But of course, the bad apples had to go on and become Siths by looking out only for themselves. It always works that way. First we had the Beatles; then John marries Yoko and suddenly no more Beatles. Damn Sith!

Anyway, thanks to this reality we can apply it to anything and show there is a dark side. Don’t agree? Let’s just take puppets for example.

Now what could be dark about these adorable kid’s performance toys?

See. It’s all the Sith's doing. Bad Siths. Even puppets can be frightening.

And when puppets go bad, to whom do you turn? There are no super hero muppets or puppets. At least in the rodent world they had Mighty Mouse. In the dog world they had Under Dog. But the poor puppets are left unprotected.

And the bad element begins to grow.

Now the puppet world might not matter to you. You probably don’t have dealings with puppets in your daily life. Until you discover little Bobby’s new craft he made at school

Like I said…a dark side to everything. Damn Siths! Damn teenagers!

monica said...

yeah, and your cute little babies cuddling up on your lap, all of a sudden become monster teenagers!! damn it! but STILL they want to sit on your lap... -> mum's all gone...

Mrsupole said...

Damn, Damn, Damn.

Where did all the good puppets go?

To the waste pile.

I always knew there was something wrong with Bert and Ernie. I guess I should of guessed it when "Cookie Monster" came out.

Damn, Damn, Damn.

Larissa said...

I'm wondering... what was the inspiration for said "evil school puppet?" Does he have an aversion to oatmeal cookies? So much so that they leave him with a sense of impending doom?

And are those almonds protruding willy-nilly from this demon cookie?

I think it would be enough to give me nightmares, myself... =P

Chris Wood said...

Yoko was a Sith Lord? Makes sense.

Deb said...

I work with that gang in the first photo. Well, all but that yellow bird. We took care of him right away. Siths thuck.

lime said...

i'm glad i didn't read this before bed. i might have had nightmares.

The Incredible Woody said...

What about those marionettes? Those things scare the hell out of me.

Jaime said...

when puppets go back, you call in the clowns to whip them back into shape. creepy clowns can definitely take those bad puppets

Kurt said...

Puppets were always scary.

ReformingGeek said...

I love the puppets and the scaffolding photo but they are a bit scary first thing in the morning.

Bobby obviously has some repressed feelings and must be facing his fear. What will happen if Bobby makes a clown?

VE said...

megan - Isn't it that way with nearly everything. I hid my agenda under my mattress...along with my money.

monica - Damn teenagers! I'm kicking them out on their own as soon as they're legal age. None of this hanging around home until they're 40 stuff.

mrsupole - I'm pretty sure Ernie was the cause for Bert to have hypertension. Cookie Monster is now a type 2 diabetic...

larissa - I don't think that's a girl scout cookie! I hope those are giant almonds protruding from it. I'm sure he got an 'A' because it probably scared the crap out of the teacher...

chris - It's all becoming clear, isn't it? Next I'll tell you how Sonny Bono's ski accident wasn't so accidental...

deb - "took care of"...did you have white meat or dark meat at the dinner?

lime - That's when the puppets change their demeanor!

incredible woody - They are closely related and highly disturbing hanging around looking down on you and such. I agree!

jaime - I've no doubt clowns are in on this in some cruel way. I'm sure clown are sith lords in disguise

kurt - Never trust a puppet!

reforminggeek - Bobby should be put under surveilance from this point on...

Roy Scribner said...

Take blogging, for instance. There's this guy called VE...

VE said...

roy - Yeah, that guy is scary. You never know what's gonna be on his blog. One minute its puppies and rainbows and the next minute its zippered tongues and bad puppets. Damn sith...

Hale McKay said...

Who'd a thunk it? Puppets going over to the dark side?

Quirkyloon said...

VE! OMGawsh! You found a Michael Jackson puppet!

Look in the scaffolding photo he's holding a blue can. He must be begging for some much needed money to save Neverland!

Puppets are evile!

Thanks for reminding us. hee hee

Elizabeth said...

Elmo has always been evil!

VE said...

hale - Next thing you know its gonna be the Peanuts characters! Sheesh!

quirky - Ha! That's hillarious. I never noticed that one. You're right...which just makes it even more freaky.

elizabeth - I don't even want to know what happens after you buy one of those tickle-me-elmos and actually tickle it!

Gladys said...

See your forcing me to admit that Howdy Doodie always scared the bejeesus out of me. He was evil just like those damn clowns. Who knew it was all the Sith's fault.

Giggle Pixie said...

Isn't that what Michael Jackson is?

Angry Max said...

I had a novelty puppet when I was a kid that was a boxing nun. Seriously. I don't know what wacked out toy store my mom bought that in, but I'm pretty sure she was a kind of super hero. You just don't like nuns -- admit it.

VE said...

gladys - It's all coming out now, isn't it? That's why I put the Howdie Doody over my face on my profile picture...it scares people away...particularly my clueless employer.

giggle pixie - But who's hand is it then?

angry max - Now I'm visualizing your Christmas list...Boxing Super Hero Nun...I think we should evaluate your childhood. Were Legos: a. Unpopular because they were square. b. Ribbed for pleasure or c. Perfect as weapons for sling shots

Nessa said...

That's an evil oatmeal cookie.

nursemyra said...

that street performance looks cool. where can I see it? does it involve a plane trip?

Uncivil said...

Hmmmmmm...is Biden Obama's puppet or is Obama Biden's puppet? You did say sumthin' about the dark side didn't you?

Chica said...

Dark side to puppets? Your just now finding this out? Do I ask to many questions or what? :)

Janna said...

Thought #1: I'll take a sith over Elmo any day.

Thought #2: Little Bobby's project looks like someone threw up oatmeal and potato chips.

Carla said...

I always knew puppets had an evil side.

VE said...

nessa - Who would've thunk oatmeal cookies could be evil?

nursemyra - VE never knows where the source of said pictures come from. He is notorious for finding what he wants and using it the way he wants to. And on some occasions he'll create his own. That, alas, was not the case here.

uncivil - I KNEW you'd find a political angle to this!

chica - Isn't it fun commenting everthing with a question? Doesn't it require skill? What if nobody ever answered questions but only asked them?

janna - Perhaps little Bobby was doing a presentation on regurgitation...

VE said...

carla - We can lump them in with clowns, mimes and marionettes as 'not to be trusted'

Kevin John said...

And they changed the name of Cookie monster to....Vegi monster??

Just doesn't do it for me.

The Self-Deprechaun said...

I bet the gnomes taught the siths and teenagers how to be evil. that one mask was like marilyn manson.
don't trust anyone!

Alex L said...

Is that last person dressed as an evil oatmeal biscuit.

VE said...

kevin - If somebody served me veggies instead of cookies for dessert...I'd be a monster too!

self-deprechaun - My gnomes don't like anyone much. I'm pretty sure all they'd do with the Siths is practical jokes. They love messing with the Siths. No, my gnomes aren't evil, they're just cranky and mischevious.

alex - Pretty much. Bet their parents are proud!

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

That last one looks like pumpkin seed vomit.

VE said...

perpetual chocoholic - Ha! Good one. It does! Well...not that I would know, you know?

yellojkt said...

Creepiest puppets since that Genesis video.

VE said...

yellojkt - You're right, I forgot about that one. Thanks for reminding me...

Wow said...

I'm glad he didn't go with an angry snowball instead!

VE said...

wow - Or an angry twinkie...they're not pretty either

Dee said...

i never did trust those darn muppets!

VE said...

dee - And see...it was for good reason!

Anne said...

I love a good post that has the word "whom."

VE said...

anne - It's not used that much, is it? Whom should we blame for that?

leelee said...

Gosh I hope that last puppet wasn't made in insulation...very dangerous!

HUGS!!

VE said...

leelee - And itchy too...

Starrlight said...

I have long believed that there is something inherently evil in ALL puppets. Especially the cute ones.

Maureen said...

Siths may be evil but they are terrific kissers (yes, I DO know first hand.... ha!)

VE said...

starrlight - Funny how so many have that same feeling. These just confirm it!

maureen - Would I doubt you when it comes to Star Wars knowledge?
