Rocket Fever Caption Contest!



Combine a couple kids dressed like a Happy Meal on the Walk of Fame with a Scientology building in the background, and what do you get? A Rocket Fever Caption Contest!

Yoshi Yamaha and Leonard Parrish's dream of being fast-food-themed street performers on Hollywood Boulevard ended soon after this photo was taken. A mob of crazed gutter punks pummeled the pair with cardboard signs reading "Need Money for Beer." The mob then ate Yamaha and Parrish's costumes, leaving them naked, bloody and confused on the Walk of Fame. Just like so many other young dreamers in Tinseltown ...

These unknown teens repeatedly chanted "Ba-da-ba-ba-baaaaa ... I'm druggin' it," drawing the ire of nearby Scientologists, who quickly administered a stress test before beating the two youths with a hard-cover copy of "Dianetics."

Do I win?

The Closer opens with a doozy!

Life in LA is great when you can trot around the grime caked mecca of broken dreams and mediocre talent known as hollywood boulevard and happen to run into adolescent children coming to terms with their developing sexual urges by dressing as artery clogging corporate hell food before they go home to compare their new body hair.

Tom, Katie: get back inside for Level 5 of your training. That's not how an operating thetan acts. There'll be plenty of time for photo ops later, but we mussn't let the outside world see our sacred, religious ceremonies.

We're McDonald's hamburger and fries! You may remember us from such films as "The Trans Fat Affair" and "The Erotic Adventures of Mayor McCheese."

Hud scores cheap brownie points by employing my new catch phrase ... Rena is exempt from the contest b/c she took the shot, although body hair references are always welcome at Rocket Fever ... Solari displays a detailed knowledge of Scientology that simultaneously puts him in contention with JC and weirds me out ... Dr. Hot Crap is also exempt because his real last name, Frey, suggests he's related to one of the photo subjects.

Cook noses out Solari, due to his brilliant approximation of the onomatapoeia of the McDonald's song.

Jamie wins the right to drink all the Sapporo he wants for the next several months. Congrats, Closer.
