Acorns affect squirrels like LSD affects humans. That cute little squirrel nibbling on an acorn is actually tripping out.

Rocky the Flying Squirrel was originally Rocky the Flying Badger, but the moose wasn't having it.

Rocky the Flying Squirrel has had the clap so often that, in the words of Dr. Philip "Bobo" Phartuccio DVM of the Blawnox Anthropomorphic Cartoon Character Veterinary Clinic, "it's more like applause."

Sylvester Stallone got this idea for his Rocky movies when watching an episode where Rocky takes down Bullwinkle. Apollo Creed's name was originally Bull Winkle, but the Rocky people threatened to sue.

June Foray, the voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel, had a secondary career as an independent randomly parachuting paramedic in Brisgate Cove, Massachusetts. She'd be up in a helicopter with her pilot and whenever she saw trouble she'd just drop in. Sometimes she'd drop in if she didn't see trouble, but the barbecue looked inviting.

I was also a member of the Independent Randomly Parachuting Paramedics in Brisgate Cove, Massachusetts. Twice I had to randomly parachute in to rescue other members of the Independent Randomly Parachuting Paramedics in Brisgate Cove, Massachusetts who landed ass down on barbecue grills.

The budget for Brisgate Cove, Massachusetts, included $10,000 to replace damaged grills. You don't mess with Brisgate grillers.

Ultimate Kickpunching Championship champion Sergio "Robocruncher" Julio is set to take on challenger Alberto "The Brisgate Grill" Palsgrove this Friday at the Pawtucket Convention Center in North Smithfield, RI. Despite being a relative newcomer to the mixed martial arts world, Palsgrove is an impressive physical specimen that has shown he can kickpunch AND punchkick with the best of them. He will have to contend with Julio's flipping mat striking kickpunching attack style though which has served the UKC Champion very well during his 105 day reign as the #1 Ultimate Kickpuncher.

"Kickpunch", oddly enough, comes from two other words: the first, "khikkip", is the Turkish term for removing someone else's kneecaps, and the second, "wunsch" is an Old Gothic term indicating you should eat the kneecaps once they have been removed. The terms were apparently first put together by Claude Jean, the damned, a reprobate Chinese monk, who was the first to introduce fireworks into Estonia.

The word "Frisbee" comes from the Celtic pagan words "fris" (wind) and "bee" (kneecap) used to a game involving removing the kneecaps of their enemies and throwing them into the wind, seeing whose kneecap would sail the farthest. The game got so popular that some people started using their own kneecaps, believing they would sail into the wind better. The record is held by Cross Christopher, whose Frisbee Sailing got to 144 feet, though he only had one leg to stand on.

Cross Christopher, the one-legged Frisbee Sailing Champion also keeps a pet falcon named Mortimer. He often takes the bird to Frisbee sailing matches to keep woodpeckers away from his peg leg.

Peg legs were named for Peggy Legg, the only known pirate with two peg legs, which she named after herself, the right one called Peggy, and the left one called Legg. The name eventually got shortened.

Simon Pegg is in negotiations to play a large (if not varied) part in the upcoming yet-again-remake of Willy Wonka. Simon is to play all of the Oompa Loompas. He refuses to use computer imagery, and insists he wants each of the Loompas to be a distinct personality. Would-be director Terry Gilliam thinks this is brilliant, and states it's only a matter of finding the money to make the picture. Both Anne Hathaway and Ellen DeGeneres have been considered to play Wonka.

This one needs a spoiler box. Be warned, you "Lamb to the Slaughter"

SPOILER:
In a prequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Willie Wonka was actually a wanted criminal know for inviting children into his factory, having his way with them, killing them by hitting them with a frozen leg from his previous victim, then cooking one of the child's legs and eating it, and freezing the other for "later." Peggy Legg was actually his first victim, but she survived the attack when Wonka discovered hit someone with their own unfrozen leg does not kill them. The other's weren't so lucky.

Johann Sebastian Bach was known to steal the notes of other prominent composers of his time. He would then leak the endings of his competitor's symphonies to his brother John Jacob Bach, who would publish them anonymously in various musical journals. Thus the public would know the works ahead of time and therefore not bother to go to their concerts. Spoiler Bachs.

Bach's family name was actually Schmidt, and John Jacob's full name was John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt. He was so egotistical, he wrote a song about his name, maybe you've heard it.

John Jacob Jingelhimer Schmidt's son Joe Joe Schmidt reverted back to the family name Bach in an attempt to become famous like his grandfather Johann Sebastian. He had some success and his most remembered song was written for his wife Bebe "Baby" Bach. Critics panned the piece as a little too commercial but the song "I want my Baby Bach, Baby Bach, Baby Bach" is certainly memorable.

Bebe Neuwirth is a direct descendant of Joe Joe & Bebe, but made up the name ewqierh. When asked why she didn't take the family name, she responded "I cannot take that Schmidt."

You could consider this an incident for the Clinton body count, despite the fact that Scmidt had never been i Arkansas before, was driving a car that had failed inspection, did not have a valid driver's license, and had never met or even voted for the Clintons. But c'mon, who doesn't blame the Clintons for this horrible murder?

Schmidt's compulsion typically led him to write his name almost sixty times, but his birth certificate featured the distinctive Irish name only nine.

The obit writer for the Blawnox Bee quit in disgust when Schmidt, etc, died. Storming out of the office, he screamed, "I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF THIS SHCHMIDT!"

The law firm formed baseball, basketball, and football teams, all named The Bloody Vikings. Schmidt was the only one not on any of the teams.

The law firm of Par & Cheesi deals exclusively with claims filed against board game companies, winning such cases as the Candy Lane person who died from obesity related effects, the Monopoly user who died when the monocle he was wearing infected his eye and lead to his brain, and the Hi! Ho! Cherrio user who died from the effects of drinking cherry wine.

Cherry Wine was the last song Neil Diamond ever wrote before his tragic zeppelin accident in 2012. Unlike many other songs, it did not race to the top of the charts in a wave of massive nostalgia. Barbra Streisand was going to cover it on a comeback album, but had to shelve that one when she contracted vampiric laryngitis, which is expected to last until the next century. Garth Brooks is the only individual known to medical science to overcome the effects of vampiric laryngitis. He attributes his recovery to marathon sex sessions with Jessica Simpson (before she married Ryan Gosling).

Vampiric Laryngitis has not stopped some artists from continuing their recording career. Cases in point: Juvenile, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Patti Smith, Fred Schneider, James Brown, Bjork, Louis Armstrong, Captain Beefheart.

Bob Dylan is the "patient zero" of Vampiric Laryngitis, It is believed he contracted it on a trip with the Acid Queen. Pete Townsend wrote a whole rock opera about it called "Bobby," but changed it to an autistic boy called Tommy under threat of lawsuit.

I wish he'd kept the original idea. It would make one helluva stage musical.

Pete Townsend has said that the hardest part of touring with The Who was that the demon Asphodel occasionally possessed Peter Frampton, causing him to spew green vomit, have his head turn around 360 degrees and write really putrid songs. On the plus side, though, possessed Frampton always knew where to find really good cocaine.

The original title of the Green Day jukebox musical was Peter Frampton's Green Vomit Caused by Turning His Head 360 Degrees While High on Cocaine. Since that would not fit on the theater's marquee, it was changed to American Idiot.

Green Day was originally called Red Dawn, until they were informed that was already the name of a movie.

Before a play/musical can be performed on Broadway, it has to have been performed in 10 other states with positive profit.

The other states besides Broadway are Confusion, Franklin, Well-Being, Nothingness, Jamaica, Jamaica-Mon, Empire, Quaker and Minestrone. My aunt lives in Minestrone. She's not at all well.

There have been three battles fought over the pronunciation of the the word "aunt." Is it "aunt" or "ant"? The slogan for the battles was either "Ain't Aunt Ant" or "Ain'y Ant Aunt," which led to a battle over EE-ther or II-ther.

On Route 28, just outside of Blawnox, PA, resides the Van Zai-yant Gi-yant Ai-yant Farm. Founded by Johnny Van Zai-yant using a Federal Grai-yant intended to subsidize federal parks and allowed him to transplai-yant many pitcher plai-ant ai-yants to a new home where they are now protected. An invasive species of devi-yant aiy-ants were suplai-yanting the pitcher plai-ant ai-yants and they would have been extinct in just a few skai-yant years if not for Van Zai-yant's (and his Ai-yant Lori-yant's) vali-yant efforts.

The anti-ant antics earned Van the antagonism of a number of entomologists. Dr. Myrmidon Formex, of the Dubuque Career Center For Ant Supremacy in particular was incensed, and hired a half-dozen Visigoths to dispatch him. No love for him though, as Van vanquished the Vandals.

Vanessa and the Vandals was the first all girl rock band. But this happened in 1938, so they weren't very successful.
