Make the homies say "what," make the girlies wanna scream
While at Mexicali Express today, I perchanced to look over at all the coloring contest submissions on the wall near the register. The picture was of a sailboat, and among the standard "I'm going to scribble everywhere BUT on the picture itself" entries, there was one that struck me as kinda-sorta odd. Not only had the artist managed to color within the lines but they also included characters from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
Instead of water and waves, Meatwad was swimming alongside the boat in a sea of salsa. Inside, Shake was observing the scene and had this to say in a word bubble, "Rancid salsa is YUMMY!"
Aqua Teen Hunger Force could be the most deceptively subversive cartoon on television and it only airs after midnight. I'm sure this was done by a bored designer from the nearby Nike campus but what if some grade school aged kid is behind this? Maybe I should call Adult & Family Services.
Either way, the artist deserves first prize.
