Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Orko Is Still Indefensible Edition


This weekend has been an interesting one for me, having spent most of it lying on my couch in various states of semi-consciousness getting over a fever.  At one point, I was flipping back and forth between channels, watching the climactic sequences of ‘Titanic’, ’8 Mile’, and ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ at the same time (a surreal experience that I highly recommend), and half-watched the second Harry Potter movie for about ten minutes before my daughter informed me they weren’t speaking English.  The wonder that is Spanish-language cable networks aside, I also dreamt that I was in the Robocop cartoon and that we were accompanied into the field by Snarf from Thundercats, during which mission Robo and I spent some time discussing why we didn’t have a better sidekick.  Whether this was due to my illness or just me being @#%ing weird, this peculiar landscape (cartoon Robocop still had the live-action face of Peter Weller) does beg a query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wants a talking monkey, preferably in bright pastel colors and/or able to fly, asking: If your life were being adapted as an old-school cartoon and you were required to choose, what cute talking animal/robot/freaky thingamajig do you want for your sidekick?
