Killing 'em with ...

Wanted to get something posted. Didn't really have a topic in mind at the moment. I'll do a quick recap of the cap and if something comes out I wanna discuss, so be it!

I wanted to make something for Scifi Kara. I still don't know if I owed her own or we were even, but I try to cap her at least every 4-5 months or so.She likes a good vengeful caption as you can tell from previous captions I've made like THIS ONE. They are fun to write, because I can just picture Tom as a Bruce Willis/Arnold type who ends up in the body of a woman and learns how to deal with it and ultimately gets her revenge on those who wronged her.

Odd quirk, usually when I make other characters that are sort of irrelevant, I tend to use the last name of Jenkins .. sort of the old Scooby Doo joke, "It's Old Man Jenkins!"  ... "And I'd have gotten away with it if it wasn't for you meddling kids!" When Scott Adams needs a generic character, he usually uses Ted, since its short and generic. I'm not sure if I've ever used Ted Jenkins, but I think I now how incentive to do so! Anyway, when I went to check out Kara's preferences, she has Jenkins as a last name! Obviously I had to come up with a different name (I wonder if Kara's been doing all those horrible things I usually have Jenkins do!) so I jumped at the chance to include more pop culture layers into it. MENDOZA!!!

Yes, its a Simpson's reference. Like that comes as a big shock to anyone. That show has one of the biggest cultural footprints on pop culture over the last 22+ years. I don't think there is a day that goes by where I don't use some sort of callback to the show. Other than MST3k, its probably my favorite tv show of all time, well at least through season 15 or so!

This is a compilation of the best riffs from "the PumaMan" movie done by MST3k.


UPDATE: Unfortunately this is bad news. If you knew Yvonne from a few of her blogs,  According to a post written by her brother, Yvonne commited suicide a few weeks ago. Her brother Mark wrote, "he left a note saying that she felt she could no longer go on living (in her words); "in between two genders, dysfunctional in one and unable to become the other."."

 For any of my readers out there. If you feel depressed or suicidal .. PLEASE try to reach out to SOMEONE .. ANYONE! There are people out there that can try to help you. It sounds like Mark cared, and in your darkest moment ANY light is better than total darkness.



  1. when ever I write in some back ground character, like, some guy's girlfriend, 9 times out of 10 I seem to pick the name Sarah.

    I have no idea why, I guess it's just easy for me to picture a Sarah as a witch, a bitch, or a good girl. *giggle*

    For a male name I normally use Dylan and rarely use a last name for anyone unless it's a office setting.

    Now, Most of the time those will get switched out with people's name's I know. Like Calvin/Caitlyn, Mark/Simone, Damien/Dee, etc. But if I'm on a roll and need a name, it's Dylan/Sarah.

    I haven't watched Simpsons in year's, i think I got out of it around the 7th season or so. But I STILL watch MST3K, I hated it when they went off the air. and really got ticked off when they stopped showing the reruns.

    But thank you netflix!

  2. Cute quick cap Dee, It's really cute, I like the references, and the Killing with kindness reference, really good cap Dee. I am sorry about your friend, I know we don't know each other well, but if you need anything just ask.

    1. I didn't know Yvonne very well, but its still a sad story that unfortunately happens way too often.

      I don't necessarily feel I'm trapped in the wrong body, but I do know many people, in real life and here in the TG community that do feel the way Yvonne did. I worry that those people won't reach out to others when a wave of dispair hits them, that they will feel it to be too overwhelming to cope with. I've lost friends to suicide, and almost lost someone close to me last year around this same time.

      Thanks for the offer, and that is what this community needs, to give some hope to those who feel helpless.

  3. Hun, since my name is Jenkins, I either am the archvillian of the world or the one who dies in a grotty way when coming up against aliens of any form. I pity the future generations, one of them is bound to get eaten by the Flood.......

    Jenkins, the Redshirt Family!

    And the news about Yvonne is just too sad for words. My heart goes out to her brother.
