I was feeling creative, so I decided that I was going to offer to nickname a forum member Johnny Bananas. It sounded a bit gangster … you know, old school gangster. I thought i invented the name … but, i googled it anyway. Turns out there is a yahoo on MTV that calls himself johnny bananas. I bet he can't even speak a foreign language. That's messed up.

Soylent green is people.


My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. .

People are strange and getting worse, us older strange people are now not strange anymore they passed us all up, were below normal strange now.


"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand - strawberries with whipped cream in the other hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!"

He's giving you an example of a strange thought.

If you've never seen something then it seems it would be unfamiliar to you when you did see it.

On one of my favorite TV shows of all-time, Entourage, there was a fake cartoon series called "Johnny's Bananas." The character Johnny Drama was the voice over actor for the series.

The Doors - The Doors / People Are Strange Lyrics

Artist: The Doors

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name

When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name

When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

Alright, yeah

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name

When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

I really like the Doors.


Some times I am as Happy as a Frog on a Lilly Pad. Other times I feel as though I have Just Been Gigged Music Helps.  Also enjoy poking the dancing tiger!

Watch Episode 6 of the MTV Show The Challenge Free Agents. Should be available online. Scroll to the quiz part and get ready to face palm.
