Your friendly Future Dark Øverlord, here. People seemed to dig (and by “dig,” I mean “cringe at”) this episode way back when in the original podcast, and also in the hardcover. What are your thoughts for Episode 31 & 32, Mommy’s taking of a groom and then the Groom’s Walk? Too far? Too gross?
My only concern is one for Mommy’s overall health. She obviously has some weight problems to begin with. And, unfortunately, brains are very, very high in cholesterol. So feeding them to Mommy doesn’t seem like a very healthy thing to do.
Honestly, it’s one of the best parts of the book in my opinion.
The build up lets your mind come up with some nice mental nasties and then the reveal comes, hammers you with a taint ripping wedgie, and lets you know your best guesses are still a loooooong way from the majors.
After that, you KNOW shit just got real for Aggie.
@BigJohn: Hey, brains were good enough for Indy in TEMPLE OF DOOM.
“Taint-ripping wedgie”. That’s awe inspiring use of the language right there. My hat’s off to you sir. Now I must find some way of working that into polite conversation. Oh, wait, I’m in the army. Too easy.
“Ah dessert … chilled monkey brains”.
Indie saving short round from the fated grooms walk.
Loved this chapter in the hard cover, loving the podcast, the fate of Alex is up there with the new Evildead for disturbing horror.
Alex Panos is probably one of the most unsympathetic characters in the history of literature, yet still I found myself feeling bad for the guy…that’s how horrible it was, even though this is my 3rd time through on this story
@shipherd: He’s a douchebag, that Alex is. We’ve all known asshats like him: power corrupts, especially at a young age. Still, that’s a hard way for anyone to go.
@axios: Now that is a compliment that lands near and dear to my heart.
