Thanksgiving at Echo's house - Featuring Animatronic Edge!

*THE SCENE: Thanksgiving dinner at the Echo household. Relatives gathered around a big table w/ food just piled everywhere like you wouldn't fokin' believe.*

*Echo grabs a seat at the table and shovels food onto her plate, carefully avoiding the green vegetables. Animatronic Edge sits next to her, still holding the kitten.*

AUNT LAURA: Honey, do we really have to have the robot at the table?

ECHO: Don't call him "the robot!" (Edge looks up at Laura with his beautiful green infrared-detecting eyes) And just because he doesn't eat doesn't mean he doesn't deserve a place at the dinner table.

MOM: But to make room for him we had to put Grandpa John at the kid's table!

DAD: Well, it's nice to see you with a man who's not a punk that'll break your heart.

UNCLE TONY: Until it goes haywire and breaks it by ripping it out of your ribcage.

MOM: (Looking Animatronic Edge over) He is very real-looking...I mean you can hardly tell the difference.

ECHO: Yeah, he's extraordinarily lifelike...the Animatronic Edge can't dance either.

GRANDPA: (From over at the kids' table) He needs to get a haircut!

ECHO: (Half-ignoring him) Yeah, I got the Joshua Tree model. Isn't he lovely? (Strokes Animatronic Edge's gorgeous long hair) Practically perfect. He cooks, cleans, he can fix absolutley anything...And he's anatomically correct as well.

*Cousin Tony puts down the breadstick he was about to eat.*

AUNT LAURA: Well, I must say this is something new, to have a robot over for Thanksgiving dinner.

MOM: Not counting Uncle Milo's little "experiment" back in 1972.

UNCLE MILO: (Wringing hands in an evil manner) They laughed at me at MIT....

ECHO: That's because you did a gig there back when you were a stand-up comic.

GRANDMA: I don't like him having that kitten here. What if it jumps on the table and licks the butter?

ECHO: Grandma, you're so paranoid about cats licking the butter! Edge, you make sure not to let go of your kitten, okay?

*Edge nods silently.*

ECHO: I haven't installed his voice component yet.

COUSIN TONY: You mean he's got a c*ck but he doesn't have a voice box?

MOM: Wow...he IS the perfect man!

Baaahaaaaahaaaa!!! That's blasted hilarious! But, did I miss something? Like: when was the concept for Animatronic Edge developed?! Damn, I miss everything.
Oh, and... Can I have one?


P.S.- Finish your Edge story.

Awwww...TG at Echo's house sounds LOTS more fun than our family TGs!

Can I order a Pop-era velvet-and-spangled edition of animatronic Edgie Wedgie???!!! (sans kittie, please, I'm not into cats much)

But you forgot one thing, Echo...Edge CAN dance...he's "U2's own funky chicken", according to Bono! (well...my Edge has to know how to dance...cos you know what they say about a man who can dance!) *WINK WINK NUDGE NUDGE!*

since I posted this picture in the funny and scary U2 pictures thread, I'll post it here, because it's obvious Edge is dancin' the funky chicken, or somethin'!

If you're using Webshots, make sure youre not posting the thumbnail pic rather than the full-size pic.


P.S. No Edge can NOT dance, you guys. Have you seen the "Lemon" video? That is the whitest dancing I have ever seen.

Oh God I hope this doesn't turn into a flame war.

Awww! I loved Edgie's Lemon dance! Dammit Echo. I am so sick and tired of your judgemental nature towards his dancing moves. Enough is enough!! Ehhh, girl!
Anyway, I didn't know we could order our own Animatronic Edge!! *still doesn't know, but is making it up as she goes along*
Ok, lessee. I will have... one of your...AB era Edge's, spliced w/ Elevation era, and Pop era. Aw hell, throw in a dash of the R&H era too. Heh... ok- do you want my billing address now? Or...should I wait...?

Hey! Now dont you people all start copying me! Just because I am a genius for dreaming up the Animatron idea (literally!), doesn't mean you all gotta have U2 droids! Be original! Dream out loud!

<---has started a U2 script frenzy


VIVA LA REVOLUCION!!!!!!

Mona in Page to Screen class: I'M THE ARTHUR MILLER OF THE 21ST CENTURY!!!!!!

Katie: No, you're not! The only good part is when Larry asks who wants his meat, and then when Edge wants to rape Bono.

Mona: Where was that?

Katie: IT WAS ALL OVER THE PLACE!

Mona: Oh...

Katie: I don't get it

Mona: I need a shirt that says "It's a PLEBA thing" to explain all my actions...

Katie:I'm hungry.

Teacher: Why are you Arthur Miller?

(we read Death of a Salesman like 3 weeks ago for that class)

Mona: I wrote a play!

Erin: She writes a play like EVERY day.

Teacher: Oh, can I see it?

Mona: *bluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuusssssssshhhhhhh* I...lost it.....hehheh
