willfullyobscure: Oh, no shiat you rubes. And Dr Suess is a naughty raciss and Mickey Maus is a Nazi and Daffy Duck is a minstrel singer and Geo. Warshingmington owned slaves and the world has been unfair since Hector was a Lance Corporal.

GET OVER IT


When there are no more Confederate flags flying from your pickup truck and/or trailer park, we can talk about "getting over" stuff.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: The only question I have about Thomas the Tank Engine's universe is: exactly what in the ever-loving fark do Thomas' drivers/engineers do while sitting in that cab? Are those the "no work" jobs Sir Toppem Hat lines up for his idiot nephews?


Their soul is slowly eaten by the train until they kill themself by sacrificing their blood to the ballast and the tracks under the wheels of the engine they've served.

fastfxr: I read this a couple hours ago and it's still bothering me. I remember watching it with my son some 15+ years ago and thinking there were some really dark and heavy episodes.

Crazy to read that it's justified. Kid's shows should aren't screened enough. Those damn homosexual, druggie Teletubbies started it all.


I miss the old days of the 60s, 70s, and 80s when kids shows were nightmare fuel and it was clear that every episode was the brainchild of one demented writer rather than a team of multicultural psychologists writing safely inoffensive stuff
