Weird, I figured they would have shut down the seaport long ago.
 
2008-12-08 11:21:11 AM  
Seriously! Where's the pandemic 2 reference?

Generational differences, I guess.

Wow... for a second, I thought that said "Vagina Fungus".

/More coffee... I need it.

Came for the references to Madagascar shutting down everything, not leaving disappointed.
 
2008-12-08 12:03:47 PM  
Won't someone think of the lemurs?

/Children too, I guess
//Deadly disease and all

MAsterthief: What is that referring to?

Itch, itch baby.

The ex was a primatologist and way too into lemurs. From the hideous amount of shots she needed to go to Madagascar I'm guessing that the entire country is nothing but deadly incurable stuff.

Fungus, bacteria, animals, household furniture, decorative scarves, you name it. All deadly and incurable.

Of course the ex was sort of deadly too, but not incurable. For that there was divorce!

The addition of "Word to your mother" seems completely random. Am I missing a reference here?

Billy McGoodGuy: Vanilla Ice....


Oh. Well, that particular phrase was used in a lot of rap back in the day, so I didn't think to blame a specific rapper. Excuse me, "rapper".

The same thing hit the vanilla crop 8 years ago and vanilla prices tripled. They need to learn something from the Irish potato farmers and diversify.

So the one thing that was curable, the cure just costs half your paycheck?

I'm never going to Madagascar.

Same here. Vagina fungus I think would be far more tragic.

Ah yes, that is what I thought. I just did not know a meme came out of it.

Yes, but does it like to move it, move it or is it more of the crackalackin variety?

Kind of like financial chemotherapy. Rough, but worth it. Although I probably spent the same amount of time vomiting in the bathroom as I would have with normal chemo.

Holy crap, I've never seen that one. Can't read it completely, but I get the context of it. So Lol'd.

I can't believe this headline got greenlit without the pandemic II reference.
 
2008-12-08 12:20:52 PM  
Initially I read it as deadly vagina fungus, but was relieved after a quick re-read.
 
2008-12-08 12:22:31 PM  
Does this mean we have to stop having vanilla sex?

Artifical vanilla tastes terrible in comparison to the real thing. I paid triple the price. Thank God for Costco.

I've never been able to take down Madagascar, damn fungus has one upped me.

Don't worry. A scientist discovered a way to extract vanilla from cow pies and won the 2007 Ig Nobel prize in chemistry for her work. So as long as we have cows, we'll have vanilla.

I agree. Last time it happened I still worked for Penzeys Spices so I got mine at cost. I am really spoiled when it comes to my herbs, spices, seasonings, etc.! (thye also have the best baking cocoa cheap)

My disease arrived in Madagascar today too, but the entire Western Hemisphere and all of Oceania shut down their borders, shipping yards and airports. My day sucks.

We will they learn how to extract the main ingredient of Jet?
