Urban Dictionary wrote: "pining for the fjords"
Used to describe a dead person or animal as a way of convincing somebody that the corpse is not, in fact, dead.

First used by Michael Palin in reference to a dead Norweigan Blue parrot in the famous Monty Python Sketch.
I see, so it's a double-layered reference. Never heard of this line either. Well I was going to make a comment about the intrigue of inventing new species to add depth to the Keen planets. :p

also how did i already know these birds were supposed to be blue with no color hang on what the heck

LOL. When I came up with that one I was like, "Someone HAD to have made this joke with the Mad Mushrooms before," which is why I had to add that "everyone was thinking it" part. :)
Ah yes, the duality of "what if it's not obvious" and "what if somebody did this before". :p Really though, I love this series for being as cheesy and over-the-top as it is. I think the one pun I had trouble with was the shockshund one ("ohm-bark from here." Was that "embark"?) but even if I don't initially find them amusing they tend to kind of grow on me.

Thanks for noticing. The shirt got covered with so much Foob entrails, I wasn't sure if anyone would notice.
I was looking for it! :D It's such a fun silly little tagline.

Actually I was thinking about, someday in the future, making my own Keen comic. I was wanting to actually borrow that shirt design for a little easter egg reference, would you be cool with that?



Fully expecting Guido to suddenly reappear in about 10 comics or so and explode.
