That Banana over Texas thing is a Canadian Plot. If you check the "COLLABORATE" heading, their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org , and that "ca" at the end signifies Canada. Also they are trying to get 500,000 people to send them a dollar each, to a Canadian mailing address: 7154 Saint-Urbain , Montreal, QC , Canada, H2S 3H5 .
As to their purpose, in the heading "ON THE CONCEPT" they state: "The Banana is a Joke to Stupidity" and even make a reference that it's a statement to various groups and organizations [and -between the lines- certainly to the proud people of Texas, of course!]. They specifically include Gun Clubs -I suppose that means they wanted to specially get the attention of of gun clubs and let them know the banana will be flying higher than people can shoot at.
So as LEXXians let us band together and fight them putting this Phallic abombination in our clear and beautiful skies. Let them know they are not the first to have tried this since Dr. Evil, and if they do not yield let the cry ring out to every Model Rocketry Club to take aim and Fire and shoot that abombination out of our sky. Send a Message so simple even a Monkey can understand it, to the Canadians from Montreal for them to travel to Halifax, zipcode B3K, and join up with the last remnants and survivors of the LEXX motion picture association. That their 1 Million dollars can go to a much more worthy cause than some zany banana blimpie, and instead can be a decent beginning to fund the next LEXX movie. And let it be the LEXX that flies above our sacred skies!! ACCEPT NO OTHER!!
Here's something for Moss to chew over, lol, Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobiacs is the term for people who fear the number 666.
It's a bad day for hexakosioihexekontahexaphobiacs - that's people who fear the number 666 - the date is 06-06-06. Yesterday's Daily Mini-Quiz asked what does the word mean, and a spooky 66.6% of you guessed correctly. Ok, that's a big fib - it was actually 88.8%.
Damn straight... I'd have demanded Dominos and a large coke! 'Course, I'd like to think I won't be executed...
One thing bothering me in the news... Pit Bull type dog has killed a five year old girl. Okay, I hear about these things coming from America, but they are illegal to own without a permit here... you need a licence or something, and under the Dangerous Dogs Act I gather that isn't easy to come by. If a dog is of Pit Bull type, the owner is liable under law for its actions... ie jail time. This dog belonged to the girl's uncle, and the uncle lived with the grandmother, who was quite badly injured trying to save the poor girl whom she was babysitting while the parents celebrated the New Year. The dog was only a year old, yet had already had a formal complaint and a letter of warning against it in June, and in September it apparently attacked a 70 something year old man who had to keep it back with his walking stick. The dog was shot on the site of the attack by marksmen... Now, usually I am a fan of that saying 'blame the deed, not the breed' but, I can honestly say it'd be a cold day in Hades before I EVER let one near Joe. Irresponsible breeding (and its use as a poorly -if at all- trained macho status symbol) is making an increasingly unstable dog available to the masses, and this in turn endangers people like this little girl who have no hope of defending themselves against that sort of assault. I can't help but ask 'WHY?' Why was this dog not kept under proper restraint after the warnings? After it had already attacked another dog and a human being? I loved our Rough Collie, Captain Jack, more than I can say, but when he bit Joe... even though he didn't break the skin, that was it, I signed him over to the Collie rescue. He was a good dog most of the time, but he'd been abused before he came to us, and I know from experience that a dog that will bite once unprovoked is going to do it again. I refused to take the risk, and I guess I just can't figure out why other people are so naive.
Sorry, I had to rant on that bit of news... its been bothering me for the last couple of days. I have issues regarding careless dog owners.

eewwww I read that and I agree..I so totally put my foot down when it came to feeding my niece and nephews that kind of food! I remember telling my sister that sometime in the future children won't even know what a piece of fresh fruit looks or tastes like, especially when they came out with those 'fruit roll-ups'! Which is just high fructose corn syrup concentrated fruit juice pressed and rolled up..it's disgusting!
Don't sprinkle sugar on your bullshit and then tell me it's candy!
