Okay that's bad.  Important safety tip.  Thanks Egon.

Egon, one of the first movie characters I could relate to.

Stick the ooze in some canning jars, see if it can make the toaster dance.

Seriously...  fluorescent green goo oozing in sewers and you make a quip about Ghostbusters and not TMNT?  Subby needs to lose her nerd card.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: I was afraid no one would get that


Not sure if serious.

It's clearly Slurm.

nytmare: Munchkin City Coroner: Philthadelphia? Is anyone really surprised?

That they would use dye to trace a leak? Yes, very surprising. This is my shocked face.


It makes even more sense when you know that the area in which this happened (Northern Liberties) has been suffering serious water main breaks for the last decade.  The problem is that the mains are over a century old but have been really underutilized for the last fifty years.  Now the entire area is being redeveloped, the mains (which should be able to handle the volume) are being stressed and breaking.

What's wrong with a healthy green glow?

I too, had this mindset.

I love that episode.
Mulder: "Bambi and I...(long explanation)"
Scully: "Her name is Bambi?"

Would have been a funny viral marketing campaign for the new TMNT movie.
It is really the Ecto Kool-Aid to be served to fans who think the Eagles will make the Playoffs this year.
