Sci-Fi Saturday


1. Inspired by the Chinese, Planned Parenthood rolls out the "Abortabego" to thin the herd.

2. The Amnesty Bill provided the Border Patrol with spiffy new uniforms, high-tech vehicles, and trained chimps. But then, Bush had them all thrown in prison for "harassing" illegal immigrant drug dealers.

3. After spending millions on getting the buses "pimped" and snazzy new uniforms for the 'gender awareness' counseling staff, the school district was baffled that test scores didn't improve.

4. Dennis Kucinich (center) and his campaign staff tour the American southwest.

5. OK, since this is a snapshot from a Jim Kolbe camp-out, I understand the S&M gear, the Star Trek uniforms, the kicky leather boots, and the chimp, but what how does the chick figure into it?

:-P = Timmeh?

Obviously, the genetic experiment went horribly wrong.

A rare family snapshot from Rosie O'Donnell's past explains a lot.

Former U.S. attorneys, fired by the Bush administration, go on tour to promote their tell-all book.

As the O.J. Simpson civil trials drag on, courts have struggled to find people who've never heard of the case.

The mission was almost aborted when they couldn't decide whether the first person to set foot on Mars should be a lesbian, a Muslim, or a transsexual. Then they settled on the solution of letting a monkey have the honor.

3 Stars from the children's TV show ARK-II (back row), and the CBS network executive who approved the concept (front row). Many years later he was a key player in Memogate

Of course I'm a sci-fi convention geek...didn't you notice I'm dating a chimp?

An instant later the Wonder twins and their space monkey, along with the Galactic Centurion Androgynous, were mowed down by a drunken Ted Kennedy at the wheel of the compound's whisky tanker.

Delivery from the future; it's the only source of single malt that Teddy hasn't depleted yet...

Anytime the family keeps a monkey as a pet and the teenagers think Dad is cool there is bound to be trouble.

The Face on Mars in happier times.

Ironic that a show from the progressive, hippy-dippy 1970s should depict as positive a future world in which an uber-white male runs the show, carrying the "white man's burden" of bringing civilization to primitives with the aid of his token minority lackeys (and a sentient monkey).

"Don't spend the Summer of '76 at home! The ArkII from Coachmen can carry the whole family in comfort and convenience. Best of all, it gets a whopping 5mpg on the open road, making summer travel both fun AND affordable!"

Tragically, the crew would later die in a fiery crash while playing chicken with the guys from "Damnation Alley."

“Take us to your leader.”… “I’m sorry, Sheryl Crow is busy on her blog explaining how to wipe and handle dingleberries with just one square of toilet paper.”

Let the Feinstein be with you.

How did the Sheeslag talk Joani, Chachi and Dobber into being her lackeys?

Rodney Dill said...

Bongo knew he'd be the only one to get lucky that night.

Submariner said...

"Yep, I brought one to satisfy each of my moods (if you catch my meaning). And the monkey makes a great beer rest..."

This isn't a cap, I just want to say I am ashamed I used to watch this religiously as a kid. I had almost forgotten that, thank you so much for bringing it back to my consciousness.

the paperboy said...

doyle, somehow I think your admission of fandom for this obscure 70's show will live in infamy on Cap This. As for me, I can only vague place this as the show where the Dukes of Hazard restart the human race on another planet.

Really, really, really, ORA

Actually, this is a group character illustration for a Morrow Project game that was run in Berkeley...
