Getting Your Pop Culture Reference Right

Emily "Hawk Girl" Jones thinks the choice between Gray Davis and Bill Simon for governor of California is like the choice between Beavis and Butt-Head. I agree, as long as we make Davis Beavis (hey, their names rhyme!) and Simon Butt-Head. The names are a bit misleading: fans of the show know that Beavis is way stupider than Butt-Head, and has serious pyromaniacal tendencies as well.

If I thought Simon was just as bad as Davis, I would compare them to Kang and Kodos. If I thought Simon was just as bad as Davis, and if I were registered to vote in California, I'd vote for Simon anyway, just to get a different kind of bad for a change.

By the way, am I the only one out here waiting impatiently for the complete Beavis & Butt-Head to come out on DVD, including the music review inserts, which were shamefully omitted from the VHS selections?

I actually much prefer the skits to the music video critiques. I always thought the videos were mostly filler.

Heh Heh. He said "kang."

Can't have Beavis & Butthead without the music videos. It wouldn't do.

Kodos the Executioner?!

I heard he joined the Federation Shakespeare Company.

I don't really have anything productive to offer to the discussion of the election of either of the two candidates, the honorable Mr. Davis Bevis or his esteemed candidate Mr. Simon Butt-Head, but I noticed that the Shakespeare quote at the top of the page had a type-o. It starts out with "If".

Regarding the election, it's like Heinlein said, "There's rarely someone to vote FOR in an election, but there's always someone to vote AGAINST."

C Ya!
