Subject: BS: The Marminator--A Thread That Was Once Lost.
From: Peace
Date: 19 Nov 03 - 11:20 AM

A movie in the making. The genesis. In a galaxy far far away. This new thread is the result of the creative collaboration of many people too numerous to mention. This is how it all began. We thought we'd get in trouble for THREAD CREEP, (notice the 'we' guys) so WE started this.

From: Little Hawk - PM

Right on, brucie! I can hardly resist starting a thread called "Marmite - Does it exist???" (but I'm afraid Joe Offer would really get irritated if I did...you can imagine what it might spawn in further copycat threads...)

Hey, LH, then we could have "Son of Marmite", "Revenge of Marmite". (There's a real industry in the making here. Ya just gotta be the first to see it.) We could go to a movie studio and make hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Cross marmite with terminator and get Marminator (or Termite). Maybe hire the Governor of California to star in the first film. I'm sharing this willingly; work with me. Here's the title of our first film: "Clone of Marminator: The Tepid End of the Gene Pool." Has a ring to it, don't ya think? Don't worry that someone might take the idea and run with it. There's more where that came from.

So, to get back to the real question, like I'm a guy, right, and if my brother and his wife have a girl child, am I an aunt or an uncle? I have the feeling no one will answer me on this one, 'cause you're probably thinking I'm joking.

Or a chain of stores: "Marmite R Us", but to distinguish the chain from the Toy people, we turn the M backwards. I'm gonna give this a little more thought. I'll get back to you.

This is NOT a Nigerian scam letter. If you want to invest in the film, we refuse to accept more than $25,000 from any single individual. If you're married, $50,000. Sorry about the thread creep. Something just took over. But if any people in the world would understand the 'creative impulse', it would be 'catters.

Brucie, you are an unsung genius! This is an idea whose time has come. "The Marminator!" I love it! How about "Attack of the Marmites"??? They could be giant rodents who emerge from the Earth's core due to the collapsing magnetic field of the planet and the Madonna-Britney kiss causing instability in the Earth's rotational axis. I visualize a tidal wave of gigantic, chittering marmites advancing on Washington, siezing people, cars, and Abrams tanks in their pincer-like jaws, without regard to race, creed or religion.

Only The Marminator can stop them! (Enter Arnold, packing firepower like you've never seen before...except maybe in the last 20 or so action films...)

It can't fail. I see big bucks here.

Now where were we?

Oh, yeah. You're an uncle, man. An uncle.

And on top of that I'm an uncle, and I don't have a brother with a kid. And because I'm an uncle, then that little girl my brother and his wife didn't have is my nephew. I GET IT NOW!

Hey guys, we'll all write it, one of you directs, the other produces and I interview the actresses who are over the age of 21--and have ID to prove it. Seems like a fair division of labour to me.

Actually, I think I started the ball rolling on this by mentioning that I had a strong desire to start a thread called: "Marmite - Does it really exist???" But I didn't, cos I thought it might bug Joe Offer, cos he hates copycat threads.

With such tiny beginnings are great things launched!

So....it all began with the notorious Madonna-Britney kiss, which grossed out millions and titillated millions more...BUT more important than THAT...it caused a wobbling, a fibrillation in the rotation of the Earth upon its axis!!! This, combined with the unprecedented 300 year decline in the Earth's magnetic field (which has been noted by scientists...look it up if you don't believe me or ask Wolfgang about it)...anyway, the combination of fibrillation of planetary rotation cross-referenced with collapsing magnetic field caused perturbations deep in the planetary mantle releasing...

MARMITES! Hundreds of thousands of them. A MARMITE is a very large rodent, resembling a shrew. It's about the size of a Mack Truck. MARMITES are always hungry, and they'll eat just about anything, specially if it screams and struggles while being caught!

Consider the possibilities...

Hey, LH, my man! I like your use of the titillated word. I'll incorporate that when I do the interviews. (Something like, "May I see your titillated please?") You are indeed a thinker! But, we will have to be careful with things like "a wobbling, a fibrillatio in the rotation of . . ." . We want this to be a PG movie, right? And we better be careful with 'perturbations', too.

Vegemites! Like giant cockroaches, but dirtier and nastier and lots, lots bigger -- somewhere between the size of the tank of PMS on the left in this picture

Vegemites! They creep out at night, consuming sewage treatment plants, spent nuclear fuel rods, banjos, and their natural prey, Marmites!

Vegemites! They only grow larger and filthier when caught in a nuclear explosion!

Vegemites! Perhaps the end HAS come....

You guys 'ate that and wanna get rid of it? Shame on you! I think it's really cute. Sorta like Boo from "Monsters Inc."

Of course, I'm assuming that it's as small as it looks in the picture and pictures can be deceiving. If it is, in fact, twenty feet tall, weighs 3,000 pounds and eats Toyotas for breakfast, please ignore my comments and destroy it at your earliest convenience.

A film called 'The Princess Bride' with Cary Elwes in it, has R.O.U.S's - Rodents Of Unusual Size in it. They are rats the size of small ponies and live in the swamp.

If 'to caramelise' something is to turn it sticky and translucent, is 'marmelising' to turn something brown and smelly?

A marminator is someone who marminates, obviously. Marminators bathe others in maternal affection of the deepest most cloying sort. They drown their acquaintances in mother love much the way a chef drowns beefsteak in wine sauce before frying it. They tend to be deep-chested and roundish women between 40 and 55 with over-sized biceps and obsessive appetites for cuddling their victims.

Well, of course it's been done, Liz! That's the whole idea. Does the movie industry want something original? Hell, no! They want something that's already a proven moneymaker done over again with bigger and louder special effects and more sex and violence than the last time. They want faster and faster cuts between scenes until only a 12 year old kid in a sugar frenzy can follow what's happening onscreen. They want the mindless repetition of a proven concept.

That is exactly what we intend to give them....giant rodents consuming screaming starlets, lots of explosions, and lots of blood and gore.

The MARMINATOR is Arnold Schwarzenneger in a black leather and gunmetal combat outfit, wielding a series of deadly hi-tech weapons and glaring a lot. If we can't get Schwarzenneger, we'll get "the Rock". He's good for the part, and Arnold's getting a little old for it, actually. The MARMINATOR terminates MARMITES...or he marinates termites...or something like that.

Wasn't the Marminator either a monster in the Labyrinth that was killed by Theseus or the Union waship that fought the Merrimac (a/k/a Virginia) at Hampton Roads?

Closeup: the quiet waters of Hampton Roads. Pull back to see happy folks at play, waterskiiing, fishing, fooling around, messing about in boats. Swing right to view the USS Ronald Reagan at anchor in the Naval Yard.

SFX: bubbles from the water, growing larger and more frequent. Suddenly, a monstrous head breaks the surface and with one more mighty bubble a fearsome mouth opens and, water and slime dripping from teeth the size of mizzenmasts, it says,

Spaw!! Braaaaaap!!

and hundreds of recreating folks scream and rush to shore.

Dripping muck and seaweed, the thing waddles to shore.

The first Vegemite has returned.

By the way, that was SFX, the abbreviation for Special Effects, not SEX, the abbreviation for SEX. Later, however, the script WILL call for SFX for SEX.

Watch for it: the SFX for SEX should be interesting, 'cause a Marmite will attempt to molest a Vegemite (or maybe vice-versa). It'll be a love story, sort of a Hatfield-McCoy Romeo & Juliet sort of thing, only with monstrous sex. Gratuitious monstrous sex, of course -- we gotta make some money on this in order to become tenaires.

Hello,

You may be sruprised to recieve this communication from me because you do not know of me, but I am the controller of a prestigious import-export house in Lagos, Nigeria. It so happened recently that my uncle, Kimu Nobutuhane died tragically due to Marmite attack, leaving his entire fortune of $976 Billion in limbo with the Investors' National Bank of Lagos, a prestigious banking firm with a rock solid reputation all over the World.

Due to the Marmite connection, and the fact that Rapaire's name coincides with the name of my uncle's only heir (who disappeared fifteen years ago without trace while photographing lions in the Serengeti), I have the idea that we could facilitate the transfer of the $976 Billion to Rapaire's North American bank account, upon the condition that Rapaire receives 33% of it as compensation for the service of releasing these funds. This would amount to $322,080,000,000 in US dollars being retained by Rapaire, while the rest would be returned to the account of Robert Nobutuhane in Nigeria.

We have to put a condition on this arrangement that at least half of the $322 Billion be used to finance your movie "The Marminator", so that the World public be alerted to the great danger posed by Marmites.

We are depending on you to be honest and return the remaining 67% of the funds ($653,920,000,000 US dollars). We believe that you are sincere honest people who would not cheat us.

Accordingly, please contact us ASAP by fax at 1-800-BIG-LOAD and we can take the next procedural steps in this arrangement.

We thank you in the name of the Lord Almighty for being our compassionate rescuers in time of need!!!

REspectfully,

Robert Nobutuhane

Mr Nobutuhane: We are yours to command. Tell us how to follow up on this transaction. Our fax machine has been destroyed by the prototype of the Marminator, so we are really f####d in that department. To get the cash, what else would you suggest. We'll give you a credit in the movie.

Dear Liz the Squeak, Little Hawk, MMArio, RangerSteve,
Rapaire, McGrath of Harlow, John Barden, Bee-dubya-ell, jacqui c, Amos, muppet, and our spiritual leader, Robert Nobutuhane:

If the movie craps out, I think we oughta start a new religion.

To the donating public: We are not insistent that the donations people send MUST be spent on a movie. We are flexible. (You'll notice that in the SFX SEX scenes.) If you would rather we spent the money on other things, we'd be more than willing to do so. On that, we are not rigid. And speaking of which, is there any chance we can get the Nude Photographer from another thread to do the camera work?

Rapaire, please tone down the stuff to do with llamas. The cattle industry may want a piece of the action, and we don't want any complaints from the wool people or animal protection agencies. Don't mean to sound bossy about this, but if any federal agencies find out what we're doing, Little Hawk could get in deep dung. I've been signing all the cheques with his name! So far we've spent a trivial $73,000,063 on the set (in a secret location--but it has a hot tub and big-screen TV). I was able to buy the dog house that the religious fundamentalist had built years ago. His cost was about $12,000, but for a kickback of 60%, he let us have it for just under thirty-five million--and he threw in the dog. Been bargaining hard.

I want to begin the starlet interviews soon, so I have purchased stock in Ginseng futures. Hope you guys don't mind. We'll have to get a firmer plot, but things are shaping up just fine. We have a hit on our hands here.

I want a battle scene, where the military tries to kill the Vegemites and the Marmites. It doesn't have to be be anything big, because we can film from the top, bottom and sides and nobody will notice that it's the same scene. AND we'll get an award for creative camerawork, since I don't think ANYONE has ever filmed a battle from the bottom before!

So anyway, here's my thinking on this:

The Vegemites and the Marmites join forces, temporarily, because the US Marines are bothering them. Needing a few good men, the V&Ms eat about half the 1st Marine Division and continue stomping towards Hull9, where they are going to have their Armeggedonish battle. Outside of Youghcaghanny, Pennsylvania, on the banks of the Mighty Yuck (the river), they are confronted with the 1st through 9th US Infantry Divisions, the British Paras, the SAS, the SBS, the Green Berets, and the Fifth Northumbridgeshire Light Lancers (known as "the Cherry Pickers" but not because of their uniforms). Off in the distance the pipes of the Sutherlands and the Black Watch tell us that Lord Lurkin' is marching to reinforce the Thin Red Line at the front. Ghurka forces slip between the Vegemites' toes, where they hack at them with their famous knives. The Unites States' Special Military Underwater Reconnaisance Force (or SMURFs), clad in their special blue uniforms, attach the Marmites by shoving flares under their toenails and lighting them off. Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden, playing themselves and eager to squelch the rumors of their gay marriage as reported in "The News of the World" some weeks ago, lead jihad forces.

All to no avail. The slaughter is immense and quite complete. There is nothing between the Vegemites and the Marmites and Hull9 but several million people, part of Canada, some good-sized cities, and the Atlantic Ocean.

Maybe if we understood the Marmites and Vegemites, maybe if we treated them as people...nah.

Brucie... "There's no 'F' in SEX"

Hmmm, that reminds me..

In Oz here we had a Music Hall comedian who transited well to Radio called "Mo" - real name Roy Rene. he had a side kick called "Stiffy"... (keep it clean!)

One of his famous routines involved having Stiffy reading from a large chart with letters of the alphabet as Mo pointed and said them.

Mo: A, B, C, D, E, F,

Stiffy: A, B, C, D, E, K,

Mo: Start again!
Mo: A, B, C, D, E, F,

Stiffy: A, B, C, D, E, K,

Mo: Start again!
Mo: A, B, C, D, E, F,

Stiffy: A, B, C, D, E, K,

Mo: Start again!

Stiffy: A, B, C, D, E, K,

Mo: What's wrong with you? Every time I say F, You See K!


Robin

I haven't yet worked out all the details, but one scene will be set in a private school (public in the UK). All of the students will be destroyed just before Christmas by...term-ites.

Kim C

As they say in the ads - You either "are" a Marmite virgin or you "are not" a Marmite virgin

Personally I am not - but it still stinks - that bath is essential.

Stay off the Bovril at all costs or there is no hope.
