  •  In the not to distant future... (14+ / 0-)

    If anyone ever uses that phrase they are required to finish the rest of the theme song from Mystery Science Theater 3000.

    In case you forgot:

    Joel: In the not-too-distant future --
    Next Sunday A.D. --
    There was a guy named Joel,
    Not too different from you or me.
    He worked at Gizmonic Institute,
    Just another face in a red jumpsuit.
    He did a good job cleaning up the place,
    But his bosses didn't like him

    So they shot him into space.
    We'll send him cheesy movies,
    The worst we can find (la-la-la).
    He'll have to sit and watch them all,
    And we'll monitor his mind (la-la-la).
    Now keep in mind Joel can't control
    Where the movies begin or end (la-la-la)
    Because he used those special parts
    To make his robot friends.

    Robot Roll Call: (All right, let's go!)
    Cambot! (Pan left!)
    Gypsy! (Hi, girl!)
    Tom Servo! (What a cool guy!)
    Croooow! (He's a wisecracker.)

    If you're wondering how he eats and breathes
    and other science facts (la la la),
    Then repeat to yourself, "It's just a show,
    I should really just relax
    For Mystery Science Theater 3000!

    That's from the last of the Joel Hodgsen episodes, he was my favorite. Let's face it, Rand is about the right age to have been breaking out the "Aqua Budda" when that show was on.
    Remember, "Special thanks to the teachers of America"
