What’s Black and White and Destroys Childhood Memories?


So at the behest of good friend and certified Internet Archeologist Ryder Ripps, I’ve been spending a lot of time cruising down the old information super-highway. Let me tell you something folks, the internet, it’s like, really interesting. And not in a condescending italics kind of way either. If you’re hella nasty at Google, you can find some shit that will blow your mind.
However, I do more mid-range internetting, generally perusing the internet picture dumps of yesteryear, various and sundry lolcat sites, and catching up on the new hot memes and such. Well, while going about my little Intro to Interweb Culture, I came across these pictures of  latex fetishist, or ‘Rubberists‘. While I’ve never been one to poo-poo on fetish culture, and have been know from time to time indulge in a few of my own, the PVC/Rubber fetish has always struck me as a wee creepy.  Anywhoo, so’s I’m looking through all these pictures and something about this photo struck me as vaguely familiar when I realize I HAD THAT EXACT SAME SHAMU FLOATY. Seriously, this thing was my favorite toy when we lived on the waterfront. All in all though I think the fetishy aspect doesn’t nearly creep me out so bad as the thought of a whale with legs. 
Seriously, if whales ever grow legs we are all FUCKED.
