Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Pillsbury Doughboy


"Despite the initial prognosis of all the king's horses and all the king's men..."

Okay, so I'm no doctor. I mean, I like to play doctor, but technically I'm not one. But is it a common practice to drape a white cloth over a patient's entire body, like they're dead already? Or is it meant to keep "Tub" from collecting dust, like he's an unused sofa? Or is this just 'cause Dr. Moon thinks "Tub" is that goddamn homely? Is this a magic trick? Will Dr. Moon yank the cloth away, revealing his curvy female assistant, who will hop off of the table and prance about in her spangled showgirl costume, while General Angst claps his hands and hollers and wolf-whistles?

'Cause I'd pay to see that shit.

They're not setting it up for either chatacter to yell out "It's alive! Alive!" Are they?

Jon: Man, I hope not. However, I could really go for a "Hey Presto!" or an "Alakazam!" or even an "Ala Peanut Butter Sandwiches" as they remove the sheet.

I was thinking "Why don't you come up to the lab and see what's on the slab?", but I was thinking that when I woke up this morning. And every morning.

That would make a pretty good pick-up line, too!
