Subliminal drug messages

Conspricy theory

Everybody in my generation grew up with messages that drug use is not bad, infact drug use is good, and drugs are associated with the good guys not bad guys, and now the years have gone by and we are being told that drugs are bad, bad? but when we were growing up we were told drugs were good, what's going on?

If you don't already know what I'm talking about I'll tell you. Roger Ramjet, pops pills and gets super strength, pop eye sucks down some of this green "spinach" (often though his pipe that he never takes from his mouth) and he goes psycho, bugs bunny eats some sort of "carrot" laced with god knows what and he gets off the show, the road runner eats small pellets off the ground and can run super fast, and the maybe the biggest addict of all, scooby do, is scoobys crime fighting friends using their little mystery solving business as a front for the headquarters of an international drug running operation? This is by no means where it starts, even the most seemingly innocent kids shows are not untainted by a "take drugs" message, the "cookie" monster, need I say more, does that guy have the munchies or what?

This is just the tip of the iceberg as far as drug use in cartoons and kids shows goes, I'm sure there are many more examples of cartoon drug addicts out there but what's the purpose of putting pro drug references in little kids shows? I'll tell you what the purpose is, it's so little kids bearly able to open their eyes are from day one are taught to accept drugs, and when they are old enough the first thing they do is go out get some drugs and shoot up, within a year they are a mere shadow of their former self, sprawled on the floor in some dingy apartment laughing their ass off to them self. The reason this happens to some kids and not others is that only the smart kids pick up these subliminal messages, the ones whose brains can function fast enough, these kids are the ones the government is systematically trying to destroy so that only the stupid are left and it can exercise total control over THE ENTIRE WORLD!

       And your inventive idea is....?

       "If video games made kids do drugs, they'd all be running around in poorly lit rooms, eating pills one after another and listening to electronic music"....

       /pop eye sucks down some of this green "spinach"/   

       As far as I got without laughing at the thought of popeye hitting himself in the eye over and over again.

       I made it further than that, blissmiss. And I am SHOCKED.   

       To think that throughout my childhood I have been watching such dangerous kids programs.   

       How innocently I thought scooby snacks were dog biscuits, spinach was healthy and Roger Ramjet was fun to watch. I wonder where this trail of insidious substnce abuse will go... Alice and the mushroom that made her bigger?..'Henry's Cat' and the tale of concentrated Moo-Moo juice that turned people into clowns (if anyone else remembers that I'll be surprised)?.. The Gummi Bears, bouncing here and there and everywhere AFTER drinking some kind of juice? And the worst of all, Asterix and those terrible Gauls and their magic potion they used to defeat the Romans - they even had their own 'pusher', the druid Getafix.   

       It's comforting to know that this only affected the smart kids.   

       Now, where is my skag?

       What about Scooby Doo and Shaggy? Why were they always paranoid? And, how do you explain those serious bouts of the munchies, satisfied only by 3 foot tall sandwiches. And that van- who the hell painted that?   

       And we woulda got away with it, if it weren't for you meddling kids!

       Fact: a side effect of taking drugs is that you are predisposed to thinking others are taking the same drugs. This applies to your perception of characters on television.   

       Fact: certain drugs can induce a state of paranoia.   

       Put the bong down, Gulherme.

       Mr Benn was clearly a drug addict. Instead of going inot work everyday, he'd go round to a local costume shop, owned by someone form the middle east who doesn't find it odd that a grown man i comign into a costume shop everyday, and would go on trips through time and space.   

       The phrase 'Marakesh Express' springs to mind...

       [marked-for-deletion] because, as [egbert] alludes to up top, this is not an invention . . . but a speech.

       Fact: a side effect of not taking drugs is that you are predisposed to thinking others are also not taking drugs. This applies to your perception of everyone.

       Fact. Some drugs are fun! Thats why some people choose to do 'em.

       I knew when I wrote this that it would be m-f-d but I felt that it just had to be said for the good of man kind.
