What does Giorgio Tsoukalos have to do with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? (and other mysteries of the universe unraveled) PART ONE...also, I answer Nellie Vaughn's crazy questions

I posted that gif up there for reasons other than the fact it looks really cool.  It actually has something to do with this post.  So, just hold onto your potatoes.

Recently, I've been getting a lot of requests...I mean requests to write about certain topics in my blog posts.  Now, I suppose I could have done what people do to me when I dare to ask them something...namely move to Indiana and change my phone number.  But that's mean.  Besides people requesting blog posts save me the trouble of having to come up with my own damn ideas!  Anywho, on with our story...

In the comments section of of my April 16, 2012 post Nellie Vaughn of Buttons are not Currency and co-host of the Little Room Discussions  podcast wrote, "If you're taking requests, would you kindly find some info. on Baba the Indian barber? Healer? Prostitute? I am not sure what he does, other than give great head massages. While you're at it, find out if Shinji from Neon Genesis Evangelion is single."  Well, I don't know if Miss Vaughn recalls this, but  I already took a topic request from her when I wrote the post Why is Ron Burgundy funny? ...  Which is what caused long time friend, as well as regular reader and commenter Rachel Halvorson, to have the nerve to request I write this post--->"Boo The World's Cutest Dog": a Blog about the Death Rumors Surrounding "Boo The World's Cutest Dog" .  And so here we are.  Actually, I am just kidding about being perturbed about writing request posts.  Like I said, people making requests saves me the trouble of having to think of my own ideas to write!  And besides, the asking for ideas to write about was invented by Mark of The Rambling Person, and certainly not me, anyway. Yes, it's true.  Mark is the first person in the history of the internets to ever ask the readers for ideas to write about.  Though, I admit I didn't do a lot of research to try to prove that he is.  In fact, I didn't do any research regarding that at all.  In truth, I don't really know where I am going with this so I will just post another link to Mark's website The Rambling Person and get on with answering Nellie Vaughn's questions...

"If you're taking requests, would you kindly find some info. on Baba the Indian barber?"

When I kept seeing Nellie Vaughn making references to "Baba" I obviously assumed she was talking about Baba Streisand, which in turn inspired me to look up this youtube video Neil Diamond & Barbara Streisand, You Don't Bring Me Flowers - YouTube and watch it, while I was eating my Taco Bell meal for dinner.  And that video in turn inspired someone to make this youtube video Neil Diamond & Barbara Streisand "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" Parody - YouTube  which in turn inspired me to make that video, April 18's Funguzz Vizzion VIDEO OF THE NOW.  All of this because of Nellie Vaughn's question...

Now onto Nellie Vaughn's next question...
 ...While you're at it, find out if Shinji from Neon Genesis Evangelion is single."

Well, while I'm at it, I have no idea if this guy is single or not.  I could give you the response my mother gave me when I was little and asked her a question she did not know the answer to, and say, "I DON'T KNOW!  WHY DON'T YOU GO WRITE 'EM A LETTER AND ASK 'EM!"  But I am much more compassionate than that...

Instead I will just completely make up an answer to your question, and protect myself legally, by saying it is "writer's embellishment." 

writer's embellishment:  Shinji from Neon Genesis Evangelion changed his name to Patrick Hernandez, became a huge pop star during the disco craze of the 70's, and started dating his back-up singer Madonna.

70's pop star, and disco icon Patrick Hernandez

Oh, dammit.  I had no idea it was going to take so long to answer Nellie Vaughn's questions, and I never got around to writing about what I was planning on writing about!...  Oh crap!


PLEASE tune in next time for What does Giorgio Tsoukalos have to do with teenage mutant ninja turtles? (and other mysteries of the universe unraveled) PART TWO...

and I will actually talk about that topic then!

Once again, God bless you, and thank you for your support.

  2. I can't help but think of the word "drool" when I read "baba." (That's what "baba" means in Spanish.)

  4. Nellie's question about Baba is a trick question, because there are lots of Indian Babas and none of them cut hair. Here's a clip about them narrated by Karl Pilkington, an English idiot.

    1. Ohhhh... Perhaps Nellie Vaughn should have asked you these things. Anyway at first, I thought you were calling this poor English guy an idiot...but now I see that's just the handle he goes by. His show seems very entertaining, but one day he is going to get himself killed with his snarky remarks, and nosey questions.

  5. I will agree that Mark was the first to do so. It's the delivery you both exhibit that's the gem of the lesson, I think. I can't wait for the next installment, really. Great answers to Nellie Vaughn's questions.

  6. I was going to give up on catching up on blogs for the night when I saw your post. For a moment, I found myself very excited, and then I read it. How can you not know about sweet Baba? Wonderful Baba who has healed many with his gentle touch. And Shinji!?! He is a reluctant savior in one of the greatest animes of all time. The only problem is the he is only 13. I don't mind dating a cartoon, but dating a minor is against the law. I ain't going down like that.

    1. I am sorry I failed you yet again. I did the best that I could. Baba sounds like a cool cat, alright. Speaking of the age issue, cartoons are sort of like vampires as far as that goes. Bart Simpson has got to be over 50 by now, for example. That will be the least of your problems if you are going to start dating a cartoon character, I would say.

  7. Shinji is too whiny for my liking.....I am just glad I knew what you were talking about, this is getting more frequent maybe I am finally catching up with life? Or you are educating me?

    1. I think Nellie Vaughn is the one educating us. I can take no credit for this. None at all.

  8. I'm pretty sure Shinji from NGE is single. What girl would want that insanity? Plus I don't know if he's capable of accepting a girl anyway. I don't think I invented that idea though. If I did I'd consider trademarking it. Easy money.

  9. You're a master detective of the internet! able to find all that stuff!

    Yes Mark was the first person to ask that question, I know this cause I traveled to the begining of time with him, yes we're the first life forms to exist! The first words were spoken by me! "existence is copyright Bersercules" and then Mark spoke: "I'm going onto me computer and asking the people in the internet for story ideas to write about!" and so ended our epic journey through time!

    1. ...until you shot future Bersercules during your review for "Brainiac" thusly totally screwing up the time space continuum. (Unless I believe the story about future Bersercules being a look alike hobo.)

      Delete
    2. Or maybe I'm the look alike hobo and the real Bersercules never existed... and was from the future!

    3. This and other mysterious questions to be answered one day in "Bersecules: The Movie"
