How The Peanut Butter Randoms Came To Be

Page history last edited by Amy 14 years, 5 months ago

How the peanut butter randoms came to be (amy’s point of view)

I was browsing on the ToO (Town of Odyssey) when I came across a forum page(known to ToOers as threads) comparing Adventures In Odyssey and Down Gilead Lane, AIO’s number one competitor.

Let me say right now that I think that DGL is really lame. AIO is way better in all aspects. (Except the reality factor, but that’s fine with me.) The Morrison family on DGL is too happy and cheery and perfect. Anyway, grinning to myself, I posted my own little commentary on the subject:

 

DGL is just too corny and sappy. The problems aren't as humorous or deadly, none of the characters work for the FBI, CIA, or NSA, and the Morrisons are just to goody two-shoes. I mean really, they are always happy and righteous and they convert all their friends to Christianity. They don't have any funny or crazy characters, and nothing ever stirs up conflict. Maybe they should have Wooton move to Gilead Lane, so the series is at least bearable!

Morrisons: WE ARE THE HAPPY MORRISONS!

 

Wooton: Hey, do you guys got any peanut butter? I used mine to fix a flat tire on the way to Coleraine! {Insert Wooton laugh/snort}

 

Morrsions: Do you want to sing Bible songs with us for a few hours?

 

Then again....

 

That, of course, sparked up a teeny bit of controversy, which I responded to in a dignified fashion:

 

THE MORRISONS ARE GOODY TWO-SHOES!!!!

 

That was when I met SivartM. He saw my humorous, albeit outspoken statements, and he thought that they were hilarious! He posted this little stab at AIO in response:

Being realistic is what makes it so good! And, really, AIO can be pretty predictable too.

CONNIE: You're wrong, Eugene!

 

EUGENE: You are incorrect, Miss Kendall!

 

KIDS: Problems! Waaah!

 

WOOTON: Blah blah! Woo hoo!

 

WHIT: Read your Bibles, kids!

 

EVERYONE: Yay! The world is happy and fun!

The End.

 

After that the war was on! Our skirmish went something like this:

Morrisons: HI GRACE! ISNT IT A GREAT DAY TO DO GOOD AND BE HAPPY?

 

 

Adventures in Odyssey:

WHIT: I just invented a new and very unrealistic machine that makes people use their imaginations!

 

KIDS: Whee! We just learned something! And we thought the Bible and history were boring!

 

 

Tiffany Richter: You guys are religious freaks!

 

Grace and the Morrisons: JESUS LOVES YOU TIFFANY, AND SO DO WE!

 

Tiffany: Wow, now I want to be a Christian too!

 

Grace and the Morrisons: YAY!!!!

 

(BTW: I know Tiffany isn't a Christian...yet.)

 

 

BAD GUY: I'm going to take over Odyssey! Boo!

EVERYONE: Eeek!

 

WHIT: Don't worry, I'll save you, Odyssey!

 

BAD GUY: Noooo!

 

EVERYONE: Yaay!

 

CHRIS: Here's how this story had something to do with something in reality! Tune in next week for more fun!

 

I had had enough of the shenanigans. So I stretched my fingers, touched them back down to the keyboard of my laptop, and typed a final, powerful, stereotypical generalization, with both vigour and emotion:

Well I bet this is what the DGL finally will be like:

Morrisons: WE ARE THE HMF! (Happy Morrison Family) AND WE LOVE GOD! WE ARE GOING TO MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD LOVE GOD!!!

 

Pagans and Atheists: We don't love God. We are going to kill you Morrisons and the Richters and Grace Andrews and the Townsens!

 

Morrisons: WE UNDERSTAND. BUT LET'S SING HAPPY BIBLE SONGS FOR A WHILE FIRST!

 

Pagans and Atheists: Okay, why not.

 

Morrisons and all of Coleraine and Pagans and Atheists: JESUS LOVES ME THIS I KNOW FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO...

 

(Everyone sings for several hours)

 

Pagans and Atheists: Okay, now let's kill everyone.

 

Grace: Oh, but can I tell you a few Bible stories first?

 

Pagans and Atheists: Alright.

 

Grace: Once upon a time God loved everyone and so he decided to save the world...

 

(Everyone listens for a few more hours)

 

Grace: The end!

 

 

Morrisons: That was great Grace! God gave you a great gift for story telling! GOD LOVES YOU GRACE AND SO DO WE!

 

Grace: Awww... you guys are so nice!

 

Pagans and Atheists: Okay, we're almost out of time, so we need to kill you NOW!

 

Hope: Please don't kill us, I like being alive! Jesus loves you Pagans and Atheists, but he doesn't like sin! Sin is bad, and killing is sin!

Plus, I don't want Mr. and Mrs. Morrison to die!

 

Pagans and Atheists: Awwww! Isn't she cute?! We can't kill her! Let's all become Christians too!

 

Morrisons: HOORAY!!! NOW THE WHOLE WORLD IS FULL OF CHRISTIANS! EVERYBODY SING!

 

The Whole World: JESUS LOVES ME THIS I KNOW FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO...

 

Mr. Morrison: Now let's pray!

 

The Whole World: DEAR JESUS, PLEASE FORGIVE US OUR SINS! WE BELIEVE THAT YOU SENT YOUR SON TO SAVE US FROM OUR SINS! WE THANKYOU THAT WE CAN BE YOUR CHILDREN AND BE LIKE THE HMF (Happy Morrison Family) IN JESUS NAME, AMEN!!!!

 

Morrsions: GOD BLESS US, EVERYONE!

 

Talk about ICK!

 

     Siv couldn’t top it, and finally he admitted defeat. Afterwards we both laughed (virtually) about the typing war we had, and then we complemented each other on our satire.

 

Eventually, though, I totally forgot about Siv, and the little battle of cheesy summaries we had waged against each other.

A while later I posted on another thread on the ToO about what kind of characters we would like on AIO after the notorious second hiatus. (For those of you who don’t keep up with AIO, a hiatus is a year-long break from AIO production, and they replace some of the older characters with new ones after this period.) My suggestion for a character was:

Hmmm... maybe a girl character who is smart and has different interests than other kids. You know, a bit of an oddball.

This character idea is totally based on me, copyrighted Underground Warlord Freak Inc., located on Old Gate Road in Odyssey. If you have Swiss cheese within a ten meter radius of this computer, it will self destruct in 5...4...3...2...1... If not, please check out our other products, such as our long-lasting boy repellant, Model X alien space ships, and meatless chicken burgers. WARNING: The meatless chicken burgers are not made for rat poisoning, water flotation, or human consumption. DOUBLE WARNING: If you have swallowed or come into skin-to-breading contact with the chicken burgers, call 911 and isolate yourself from all uninfected people until the paramedics come and take you to the nearest hospital. TRIPLE WARNING: Symptoms for MCBS(Meatless Chicken Burger Syndrome) include dizziness, nausea, pale grean skin, and temporary telekinesis and/or severe genetic mutation.

 

And if you’re wondering what that strange little line is under the other words, it’s a fake copyright. When expanded it says:

 And then came the wonderful BrokenButBeautiful. She saw my fake copyright and complamented me on it:

That is the most hilarious thing I've ever read in my whole life!!!!!!! I love random people!!!!!!!!!!!!

That was very touching, because when you are a random person like me, you don’t find many other people like you who appreciate your randomness. Especially when you go to a tiny private school with only six other girls in your class.

We started plotting world domination, basically taking over the thread and steering it way off topic. Finally Catspaw, who is one of the people in charge on the ToO, gave us our own thread called ‘Randomness and Fun’. We took to it like a fish takes to water, going on and on about the goofiest of things. Soon others began to join in, including SivartM himself.

It was soon clear that we were a trio, despite the fact that Siv’s very first post on the thread was “Randomness is EVIL”.  We thought alike, plotted alike, and even put each others' name on our posting signatures. So we made Sig our third Ruler of Randomness.

We kept on being random, and eventually set a few ‘officials’:

·        Official Songs: ‘The Random Song’  by us, and ‘Tonight’ by FM Static. ‘The Random Song’ because we wrote it, and ‘Tonight’ because it has the power to control the minds of non-random people everywhere. (And make you cry if you listen to it too many times.)

·        Official Favourite Artist: M.C.  Escher, because of his mind-twisting drawings that defy physics.

·        Official Mission Statement: We just put together everything we stand for.

·        Official Enemy: Meatless Chicken Burgers. I once had to eat one while I was at my friend’s house and... let’s just say it wasn’t very pleasant.

 

Later we decided that ‘Randomness and Fun’, just didn’t suit our thread very well. We wanted a new name. Hmmm... I thought to myself, We like peanut butter, purple, world domination, fighting meatless meat, and random copyrights... Hey! I typed up the following words: Peanut Butter The Randoms ABS International Purple World Domination Against Meatless Chicken Burgers Copyrights.

Give or take a few words, and we got our new name: The Peanut Butter Randoms Supporting Purplicious World Domination and Fighting Meatless Chicken Burgers with Copyrights. (The Peanut Butter Randoms for short.)

We gave ourselves regal titles too. BBB gave me the name Amy, Queen of Random, and in turn I declared her Empress of Words (For her contributions to our Random Dictionary.). I also gave Siv his title: Siv, Overlord of all that is Good and Mutated (In case you didn’t know, he has a thing for mutant hamsters.).

A while later we started this website, therandomnessbuddies.pbwiki.com, so we could showcase our best works of randomness and plot our plans for world domination. And as for the rest, it's random history!
