I think that's exactly how it works. In fact it MUST be how it works. How else would you explain him being the only Pink Banana?

Is a Pink Banana like a Tummy Banana?



...I'm not sure I want to know what that means.

It's like that scary time right before a tornado. The wind whips around in the distance, some odd leaves and debris drift around, the clouds loom ominously on the horizon. And then out of nowhere a trailer park is annihilated and you find yourself around a bunch of weirdos, talking lions and yellow brick roads with Pink Floyd playing in the background.

That's too coherent. The lions speak only in French Pig-Latin. The brick road is multicolored glass painted white, and isn't so much a road as it is a pile. The band consists of the members of Pink Floyd, yes, but they're each playing an instrument they don't know how to play, playing individual songs they don't know in styles they don't quite get.

Last year the forum was pretty easy to understand for the most part. Though mainly just for me.

This year it will be much more mad.

Is this what it feels like after you take some LSD but are still waiting for it to kick in?

This is when you take some LSD but are not sure if the dealer gave you LSD or smarties.

One could ask the questions "Are we talking about Pink Floyd back in their prime, or Pink Floyd today?" and if it's Pink Floyd Today "Did Roger Waters come back to the band of is own accord, or did he have to be brought back to the 'spent force' of Pink Floyd kicking and screaming?", "With or without Syd Barrett and Richard Wright?" and if 'with' then "Are we bringing them back through traveling back in time before their deaths, reanimating their zombies corpses, or having their spirits play instruments through mediums?"

The answer to all these is of course: "YES!"

I am envisioning a Battle of the Bands between every iteration of Pink Floyd, including when guys went on solo paths. And at the end a space ship is flown into the sun.

Obviously, this iteration of the Madness is more suited to us fans of 1190 because we've all had to

I'm sort-of-ashamed to say that mentally reading everything in a stereotypic generic Caribbean accent made it fairly comprehensible for me. Attempting to read it with my mental voice set to RP made my brain hurt.

We might be getting Mod Wars Episode VII: HODOR Unleashed ... You know, the film that Lucas swore over and over for thirty-five years was never gonna happen, except maybe over his dead zombie body had been de-brained and reconstituted a couple times, but then in a fit of normal madness (which is pretty sane for a zombie) sells the whole thing to Bob Iger. There will be plenty to disagree about and a bunch of you-know-whos that say nothing will ever beat Modness Episode V: The Hammer Strikes Back

I may try circumventing facilitating the madness by only typing in ancient Egyptian.

Question is... hieroglyph or Latin alphabet transcription?

Yo, everyone, here's a PSA:

Don't be that person in this thread. That person makes my eyebrows twitch, and when my eyebrows twitch I get cable .. holy shit, fuck you Rob Lowe Someone is apt to give you silly titles as a warning right before they ban you for the duration.

Just. Sayin.

Side note, this does not apply to pink people.
