yesterday j.mo and i found ourselves dodging toycrazed parents and daylight-deprived toys'r'us employees looking for gifts for the lovelyladies of south carolina...
if this doesn't scream 1983 i don't know what does:
i'm confused by a couple of things- why is this still for sale? do little kids really watch rainbow brite anymore? the package says this one is 'red butler' and *his* cyndilauperfurbysidekick is called 'romeo.' that's right- i said 'his sidekick.' does red butler really look like a guy to you? every website i checked confirms he's supposed to be a he.
now i'm wondering how i would have turned out if i hadn't spent saturday's watching rainbow brite's he/she glitterfest with my sister. all those rainbows and sparkles- it's no wonder.
i mean- look at the cast...
the pinkringleader and her puffballpridesidekick
butchbrite the local lesbian clover farmer
buddyblue (aka a young richard simmons) and his blueballboytoy
this one we met earlier- our red butler with a penchant for showtunes (kinda reminds me of my first college roommate)
partybrite and her magic party favors- now we know who the drug pusher was and where all the rainbows come from
and last but not least-
the rainbowville hoochie sista's
and i thought the teletubbies were oddballs- this crowd could eat the teletubbies for breakfast.
