Stop That Bending

http://spamusement.com/index.php/comics/view/236





MD is addicted to Spamusement. Last night she came to me for an
explanation of why the seahorse and the piece of toast were so aghast at
being told to stop bending.

Comments

Well, obviously, that's Gumby and his horsey friend there (Pokey?) but why would they be upset by being told to stop bending? The others I looked at were equally opaque.

Mary occasionally sends me to Spamusement but they do not float my boat.

I think the joke here is that bending is Gumby and Pokey's raison d'etre.

Haha! Did you enlighten her or just shake your head sadly?

I laughed at Watch Couple Action on Webcam. The beak fetish and the Rambo/Schwarzenegger ones gave me smiles as well.

She explained she was having this difficulty and I brought up the comic and started laughing hysterically.

I said, "It's Gumby and Pokey." She started laughing, too. There was a Gumby feature when she was small so she is familiar with them.

I will concede that Gumby does look a lot like toast.

What IS Gumby? Toast is as good an idea as any if you ask me.

I am having trouble picturing you laughing hysterically.

What IS Gumby? -- Surely, you jest. Gumby is Gumby.

He is a clay figure featured on a strange little children's show made, I believe, in the early sixty's. They had adventures and a terrible soundrack but gumby was cool and stupid. Pokey was cool and stupid too, but he was just a sidekick.

Heavens, where is your devotion to cultural history?

You must be careful in revealing your vast knowlege of Gumby, THEY might be watching

I am familiar with the little bugger - though did not know he was a child of the 60s - but I meant, what manner of beast or fowl is he meant to be?

Never imagined such a question would rouse such controversy, but I should have known better than to ask forbidden questions. (I nearly questioned why the lost boys couldn't fly, so it is fortunate I stopped myself.)

Re: You must be careful in revealing your vast knowlege of Gumby, THEY might be watching

I think Gumby's a little boy, I think it was just easier to make him that way. And I think that lump on the top of his head is the flip of his hair. See the hairstyles that children sported at that time.

Re: You must be careful in revealing your vast knowlege of Gumby, THEY might be watching

If Gumby is a little boy then what are those cube headed guys?

Re: You must be careful in revealing your vast knowlege of Gumby, THEY might be watching

Boys with crew cuts of course! Geeze.

So, did you get the chapter? Or is it lost in cyberspace again? I may have to tell pilgham to hurry up on those docking ports if that is the case.

Re: You must be careful in revealing your vast knowlege of Gumby, THEY might be watching

I did get the chapter. Just printed it. Because I am an evil person I may do it beefore Al-ouji's cause shorter and less spelling to fix.

It's a good thing LJ is relatively anonymous. Your Gumby info leak may go unnoticed. Am I expected to trade some other secret in exchange?

If you don't watch it, I'm going to take that dark spy cape away from you and burn it. There are enough secrets in life without sweating seminal but, utimately, fourth rate claymation.

I knew it! You're after my spy cape. Back, back, you fiendish beastie!

(This morning around fivish, I woke to roof noises. I'd thought it was squirrels, but now I fear I may find ashes in my secret spy closet...)
