R.a.n.t. of day 04/21/15
So who or what is Raxacoricofallapatorius? It's a planet in Doctor Who where a family called the Slitheen come from. What I find obnoxious about this alien threat to Earth is how they operate. Somehow, they arrive on Earth unnoticed. Then they kill a rotund individual, skin them and wear their flesh. Kind of like an Edgar suit. (Again, see Men in Black for that reference).
The Slitheen bodies, which are just as annoying to look at, are huge and grotesque and would never actually fit inside the flesh, but they have devices which compress their bodies, allowing them to do so. They then close up the skin with a zipper on the forehead. Over the course of each episode they feature in, they fart continuously and are frequently unzipping the skin to crawl out and attack someone else. It's an annoying creature which I hate to see in my favourite television show. Almost as terrible as the Abzorbalof. But that's another r.a.n.t.
Some questions for discussion:
Do you have a character in a favourite TV show you hate?
Ever ask for suggestions from friends via social media?
Have you ever watched Doctor Who? (Old or new series).
