The Blue Monkey predicts:
In our lifetime there will be a remake of the Six Million Dollar Man.
But because of inflation, he will be called the “Six and a Half Million Dollar Man”.
The blue monkey is a lesser oracle who predicts what may happen, not what will happen. He has studied many different disciplines on his path to enlightenment, including: using ouija boards, reading horoscopes, counting cherry pits, blowing out birthday candles, opening fortune cookies, pulling wishbones, watching Kung Fu reruns, listening to the weatherman, twisting apple stems, and shaking the Magic 8 Ball. All behold the blue monkey!
I bow to the monkey.
You must take out a fraction of 700 billion rescue plan if it is an American remake. That would be 6.5 million dollar man minus 2,000 Mc Donalds apple pies.
nathaliewithanh: Are you getting regionally political on me? When I hear 700 billion; I think the U.S.A. is increasing China’s population 7 times. Now that would be inflation!
You touched an American icon. That’s what you get. If I may add, with the current state of health care in the US, I highly doubt we could afford the replacing of both legs and a whole arm. We may have to go with amputation, a bionic foot and contacts.
Chinese people would owe much less Mc Donalds pies per capita.
I want a blue monkey key chain.
Nathaliewithanh I have to disagree. I have outstanding health care due to working for a state assisted Community College. They would replace both legs an arm an eye one ear. They would however be the wrong arm, and eye, the ear would only receive NPR on the radio, and they eye would only see the color blue. Then it would cost 12 million dollars, but the co-pay would be $50.00. They would mess up the paper work and charge someone else, and then the litigation would go on for years while lawyers got rich while defending both the HMO and their clients. The government would then bail out the entire health care industry. Six months later Obama will nationalize the whole thing and reposes your legs and give you a wheelchair. Then you will be sitting at home seeing blue, listening to NPR, and catching flies out of the air with your cool new arm.
Prairieflounder, I stand corrected. What was I thinking?!
Your co-pay is $50? I wouldn’t mind the wrong arm with a $50 co-pay (as long as it was not hairy.)
The Blue Monkey bestows an” easily obtainable pebble, but no Bam-Bam” on each and every one of you.
Now I want a Blue Monkey! When I was a teen, my Da burnt the ouija board.
