“Oh I get it! Very Cute. Whatever we think of- if we think of J Edgar Hoover, J Edgar Hoover will appear and destroy us.”

For some reason, I woke up this morning thinking about GHOSTBUSTERS. Specifically the part at the end, where Gozer the Gozerian has them "choose" what is going to come down from *???* and kill everyone. Bill Murry tries to take an intellectual approach to this, asking all the Ghostbusters to clear their heads (so they can sit there and decided something easy, I guess). I've always been a bit peeved at the logic in the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.

I mean, technically...shouldn't J Edgar Hoover have come down???

Anyway, in the shower I was thinking: "If you had to choose the Destructor, what would you pick?" I thought about this longer than anyone probably ever should--and what I came up with is: Texas toast. Warm, buttery, crispy Texas toast. Perhaps Ray's choice of the giant Marshmallow has tainted my choice to yet another food item (and maybe not).

All I know is, when the end comes, I'd rather it come from a piece of Texas toast (giant or regular sized). How about you? If you were a Ghostbuster, what would you choose as the Destructor?

part of me thinks "sexy hot women who need to replenish their species on another planet"... but thats been done.

the other part of me is thinking something nicer, like "a nap"

then the sneaky side of me is "old age" or "peace"

and finally, I thought of a good one. I would want to die by heroism. to die and in doing so save people.. there is a word for it, but I can't remember.

Death by sex??? Old age wouldn't work, I bet you'd just grow old really rapidly...

The heroism I like--creative.

In a pinch though, who can honestly say they wouldn't pick the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man...I mean come on, "He just popped in there."

and then at night the vindictive side comes out, and I start thinking "If I have to go, why not take the rest of you with me"

death by exploding planet,
death by global warming,
death by nuclear winter,
death by giant meteor,
death by a mummy.. (I don't know.. I was just going down the list of summer blockbusters..

ooh death by highly advanced aliens who want our planet but sadly will smith and jeff goldblum are busy smokin dope in the basement to care.

or and this one is tricky.. Death by having the dead body of gozer the gozarian fall and crush you.. take the fucker with you.

You know Jimu, as I was writing this post I thought: "This is a post Davu would have LOVED answering."

What brilliantly weird shit would he have responded with?
