Pinky: “Gee Brain, what do you want to do tonight?”
The Brain: “The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world.”
I was talking to a colleague today, circulating more probable and equally ludicrous conspiracy theories, when I recalled watching ‘Pinky and the Brain’ when I was younger. These two genetically mutated lab rats always began the show with grand schemes to , as you can read above, ‘take over the world’–but their plans fall flat, without fail!
I have a feeling this steady diet of cartoon-tinged conspiracy theories maybe responsible for my believing that ‘anything goes’ in the big, bad world of national politics, governance, etc!! :)
Here’s another bit of dialogue from the series:
Brain: As you know, people in today’s body conscious society are obsessed with losing weight. My plan is to secretly replace all the artificial sweeteners in the world with real ones, thus rendering the world’s population fat, slow moving, and completely toothless.
Pinky: You mean like the guests on Jerry Springer?
Brain: Exactly, Pinklet.
