    Question What Reminds You of KP? #7

    Two things:
    1) The day before yesterday, I bought the last two cartons of cocoa-moo out of the vending machine at work for a snack during my afternoon break. :P
    2) Today on my way home at work I stopped at Smarty-Mart - oops, I meant Wal-Mart - to pick up some liquid hand soap. Before I went to the check-out line to pay for my purchase, however, I took a quick walk through the bargain toy shelves to see if I could find any remaindered KP merchandise. Alas, no luck.
    But I did notice something that reminded me of a comment 'chutes once made regarding the color scheme on the packaging for KP merchandise. As I walked down one row full of Barbie dolls and accessories, I understood exactly what 'chutes meant by his phrase, "pink Barbie yuck:" Pink boxes as far as the eye can see - enough to make even me say, "Yuck!"

    Once in a while my cell phone will get a call from a number I don't know. I don't answer these, but I will look up the number on the Internet. I just got one from someone in Kewanee, Illinois. This reminded me of "Mentor of Discontent," since that's where Frugal Lucre said the newest Smarty Mart store was opening.

    Two more things:

    1) The other day, I saw a K-Mart commercial on TV. Their animated light-bulb mascot reminded me of the Smarty-Mart "Brain" mascot on KP.
    2) Today, I received two spam e-mails concerning "Mego" - that's one more than campy did. :P

    Watching one of my GiTS: 2nd Gig episodes, one of the characters fleeing in a boat said,

    "...We'll have company soon; head for Shegoton for the time being."

    Since it's a Japanese series, I'm nearly positive it wasn't "Shegoton," but some language homophone (Shegatin, etc), but it was interesting to hear.

    I recently bought a 4 disc set of the old Looney tunes with Bugs Bunny and the associated characters. These old cartoons were made with Fritz Freeling, Charles M Jones, and of course Mel Blanc doing the voicing. They were made between 1945 to 1960 or so. These are great classic cartoons.

    I'm catching up on the NY Times crosswords I missed last month. In the 10/21 puzzle, the clues for 49- and 50-Down both reminded me of KP. One was "City of Lights" for PARIS, and next to it was "____ T. Firefly, Groucho's role in Duck Soup" for RUFUS.

    The missus and I have been known to refer to big box stores as "Smary Mart"!

    I had a KP reminder from a novel I'm reading. There's a chapter titled "____ is a bad muther... Shut your mouth!" (The book is written almost entirely in very informal language.)

    This reminded me of "The Golden Years," where Kim & Drakken had almost the identical exchange.

    Maybe they should also check for monkey ninjas?

    Perhaps the schoolkids watch KP!

    "NASA isn't sure where the spider could have gone."
    I love the wording.
