In Case You Ever Wonder What Insensitivity Looks Like

This is it:

[13:26] Marie: "Chuck Norris can eat just one Lay's potato chip"

[13:26] Marie: nobody can do that

[13:26] Kara: chuck can

[13:32] Marie: the hold music for the Pods people sounds like a massage place

[13:32] Marie: like all mystical and soothing

[13:32] Kara: you can get massages in the Pods

[13:33] Kara: but when you come out....you're a white slave in Bombay

[13:33] Marie: ouch. or, you are dead.. like the folks who suffocated the other day. did you hear about that?

[13:33] Kara: no...but i could use some good news

[13:36] *** You have been disconnected. Thu Apr 10 13:36:04 2008.

(fixed connection)

[13:40] Kara: ok, now you can tell me

[13:41] Marie: about what?

[13:41] Kara: the dead people

[13:42] Marie: oh. that's it really. people died in a container. do you want to know much more? no

[13:42] Kara: what kind of container? a pod?

[13:42] Kara: getting massages?

[13:42] Marie: yeah.

[13:42] Marie: they went happy

[13:42] Kara: that does take the term 'happy ending' to a new and disturbing level. oh god. i've just disgusted myself.

Interesting tidbit about PODS; they are made of a see-through sort of plastic which gives a sunroof kinda effect. Makes loading your shat a tad less depressing. I know, useless information... just don't make me a white slave in Bombay.

Stinkypaw said...

nah, you're not so bad...

Gorilla Bananas said...

I can't see any air holes. I hope they farted themselves to death before they suffocated.

Hmmm, these could be the answer to the housing shortage in the near future.

Sarah said...

I think your dad might be on to something...

AxAtlas said...

Perhaps it was a SAM and not a POD. The color of a SAM storage unit are greyish, meant to blend in with the street to avoid possible trouble from violating neighborhood ordinances regarding having units that stand out or something like that on their property. So me thinks these people saw this SAM storage unit and thought it was sacred ground and started worshipping it on the inside and bam. The End.

I am so very confused. This is becoming all too common now!

theWaif said...

We'll have some first-hand PODS experience to relate to you quite shortly. Thank you for offering to share your apartment with us as we might otherwise have been forced to live in a POD ourselves. And I would really like to avoid Beckett becoming a white slave in Bombay if at all possible.

And congrats on being nominated for the 2007 Best Of Blog Award!!! Wow! What a total surprise, huh?! Who could have nominated you, I wonder??????

Bods In Pods. It sounds like a brilliant B-movie. Quick phone Hollywood! I'll put the kettle on. There's no time to lose.

Well done on your nommo, Kara, m'girl - richly deserved so it is.

Rachel said...

Humph! "best of blogs", really? humph, says I.

;)

I sincerely hope you win. I have a blog-crush on you, and in my unvarnished opinion, you deserve it!

as for the PODS, convo....
I dont get it.

I also heard chuck norris makes ground beef by throwing cows at chain link fences. But maybe everyone already knows that already.

The Future said...

Well, Ms. Blogger Extraordinaire! I have an idea. Let's put Chuck Norris in a POD and just forget about him. I wonder who would be the first to miss him, possibly his hair stylist? Creepy, crawly, creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly...

Kara said...

damnit laura...

Mary Witzl said...

Do you know, I am staring at this PODS photograph and trying to imagine how much of my kid's nail polish, hairspray, and bought-through-E-bay clothing might fit inside. I'm betting at least half of it.

Sorry, I'm obsessed. But I've just been up to her room and ANYone would be after that.
