I thought you didn't do pie. Have you been cheating on cake?

RO-REVUS! Thanks for posting this. I've seen it before but it's never a bad thing to know more about this sort of thing.

Had some rum baba, got stupid, ended up at a pie shop down by the tracks and left 10 pounds heavier and 20 bucks lighter.
Stay in school!

Moral of the story. Don't piss on your front lawn, because if you have worm eggs in your piss, you might play with the same dirt you pissed on and get worm eggs all over again. Fucking vicious cycle.

And I'm willing to bet that Julie London always avoided intestinal parasites too! (Although right now she might have a few...)

Totally meant as a compliment miss lynnster, and I think we may have to stage an intervention on Dizzy. Sounds like he got hold of some of that bad cake I had last weekend.

"Step away from the cake diz, you know we love you and are only here to help.."

Other symptoms include anemia, asthma, diarrhea, digestive disorders, fatigue, low immune system, nervousness, skin rash. Most will not face this reality or even want to think about this subject and will continue in their suffering.

Nervousness? Really?

ANY! TIME! I! WANT!

Through my work-blurred eyes I read that as Sir Nurse Dixie the first time,

My favorite intestinal worm.

This is probably my favorite film that AV Geeks has in his film library. When we first watched it at his house, you could hear jaws hitting the floor out of amazement over it.
Donald Rumsfeld was director of Nixon's Office of Economic Opportunity and it was under one their grants that this film was made. I'm pretty sure that this is the case, anyway.

po... thats awesome. Disturbing.
posted by acro at 6:25 PM on May 2, 2007


wow, This place is amazing. Started out with a Kermit wannabe lecturing to kids from Butcher Holler, travelled to early mid-Sixties cabaret in vronky's wet dreams and from there to a Belgian restaurant toilet dramarama with a backdrop of Dizzy's glycemic index roller coaster. What a trip.

What's wrong with Kermit Wannabe's logic is that lots of critters poop on the earth, cows, birds, cats, dogs, lizards, snails... not just humans. So there's always parasites in dirt. Yes, a pooped out tapeworm looks like a bowl of spaghetti, shocking how long they are. and round worms, usually from unwashed tomatoes fertilised with poop, can grow to be a foot long. They're no fun because they migrate from one's intestines into one's heart, lungs into one's throat and one swallows them back into one's stomach. ugh.

Did anyone notice the over-representation of black kids in the show?

Hey, does anyone remember this hilarious you tube video of a sock puppet describing menstrual cramps (they said that a frog lives in your vagina and cleans it out with a fork. Something like that.)

I like the eyebrows on the worms.

As a scatological side note, when I first lived in Holland, I was slightly perturbed (as were many other foreigners) of the plethora of toilets that had what can only be descried as a 'viewing shelf' (that is to say a very shallow pan with virtually no sitting water.) Upon inquiry I was told that this was so that one could check for worms... I have no proof of the veracity of this statement but it did seem like a logical explanation.
posted by ob at 7:39 AM on May 3, 2007


They have those in Austria too. When I tried to mention that shelf to my Austrian friend (who has one of those toilets in her apartment), she couldn't figure out what I was talking about or why her toilet would be considered strange. But yeah... it's like having your poop presented to you on a plate prior to flushing it.

Yes indeed. I am aware of the body's functions, but I've never felt that I needed to be THAT aware.
posted by ob at 8:18 AM on May 3, 2007


Oh great post by the way. The video was hilarious and fucked up in equal measure.

Disturbingly wacky, miss lynnster - five star wackiness. What a terrifying thing for kids to see - wonder how many mysophobics, agoraphobics, and assorted other phobics this educational film spawned.

So I screened this film at the University of South Carolina, trying to find out more information about Ro-Revus. Somebody said that Ro-Revus had a public TV show in the late 1960s/early 1970s and that it was a cult hit with high school kids because it was so poorly done.

One day I hope to find the Ro-Revus puppet.
posted by avgeeks at 9:21 AM on May 3, 2007


I was really surprised that a google search turned up nothing on Ro-Revus since they clearly were presenting him as though he was some kind of recognizeable character.

Curious if you find anything! And yet... scared.

Ohhh crap. Ohhh crap. I eat stuff off the floor all the time. I thought the 5 second rule was sacrosanct!
