Zack: Do you think he likes bats?
Steve: Now this dude I am down with. Giant swords and wicked bone dudes are a hallmark of great fantasy artwork.
Zack: They had you at glowing-eyed skeletons.
Steve: Skeleton armies commanded by wicked wizard skeletons are a powerful image that connect with our primordial fears of our skeletons being evil. They're just waiting for us to die to start forming their army.
Zack: Clever, waiting until we least expect it.
Steve: And of course bats are also evil, because you can't trust a bird that only comes out at night.
Zack: Couple things there: a bat is not a bird, it's a mammal, and lots of birds come out at night. Like all owls.
Steve: Never trust an owl.
Zack: What about with Tootsie Pop related inquiries?
Steve: That's nasty you want an owl licking your Tootsie Pop? Getting his owl tongue all over it and then beak-biting that thing? Gross.
Zack: When you put it like that, it does sound evil.
The Amazonians value combat prowess and purity of spirit. By wrestling half naked, they pay homage to both virtues by displaying their battle-forged bodies while preserving as much modesty as their society deems necessary. The gelatin in which they wrestle is symbolic of the fluid nature of battle, a concept the Amazonians call ‘akgor-gra.’
Pros: Much more comfortable than my last toilet seat, which was a transparent resin with seashells embedded inside. The outer layer wore off from friction, exposing the sharp jagged edges of the seashells, which were constantly scrapping my backside and causing major cuts and open sores.
