It's been quite a while since I've actually posted any stories on here. This has probably been my worst year as a Raccoons writer so far, as I've barely written anything this whole year and haven't really been in the mood to write for much of the year...especially lately. I have a Raccoons one-off story that I'm working on that I've had half finished for well over a month, but I've taken a break from writing it because lately I've just not felt like writing all that much. However, I do plan to get back to it and try to finish it up once October rolls around. I also finished the first of my little short stories focused on capturing little moments in our furry heroes' lives, so there's also that to look forward to. Hopefully you'll have a couple new things to read from me in the near future! Also, since Halloween is coming up, I plan on posting a few Raccoons screencaps from a certain "scary" episode (I'm sure you can guess which one) to mark the occasion...as I've said before, I won't post screencaps regularly anymore, but I will post 'em for special occasions and the like!
Anyways, on to the main topic I wanted to discuss...People of my generation are no doubt very familiar with Pokemon; I'm sure all of you can remember when it was ALL the rage back in the late '90s. I, of course, was no exception! When I was younger, I used to love the hell out of the Pokemon anime and I wound up amassing nearly 20 tapes worth of the old Indigo League episodes. Recently, I was feeling nostalgic and decided to pull them out and watch them again for the first time in years. Although I have to admit I found the anime quite a bit more cheesy as an adult then I did when I was a kid (all the awful puns! ), it was still fun reliving fond childhood memories and I think quite a few of the old episodes hold up well. Anyways, one episode in particular caught my attention..."Primeape Goes Bananas". At the beginning of this particular episode, Ash and his friends stop to eat rice balls...which are referred to, particularly by Brock, as "jelly-filled donuts", which they're obviously not. I didn't know they were rice balls as a kid, but I definitely knew they weren't donuts. Re-watching this as an adult, this just cracked me the hell up; I know they wanted to Americanize the anime to make it more relatable for English-speaking kids, but the fact that the dubbers seriously thought they could pass rice balls off as donuts just makes me laugh! (Wonder how many kids this confused way back when...) So out of sheer curiosity, I went to Youtube and typed in "pokemon jelly filled donuts", as I figured this was exactly the kind of thing somebody would make a hilarious Youtube Poop out of. Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed, as I came across...THIS: Brock rapping about his "donuts".
This is seriously one of the greatest things I have ever seen. How the hell does this seriously have under a thousand views?!
When you've got lemons, you make lemonade. When you've got rice...JELLY-FILLED DONUTS!
