This was an idea that never got fleshed out.
“The 5 Stooges meet Frank Perdue” will be filmed at Shorebirds Stadium. The movie culminates in a baseball match where two teams have to play a game of “chickenball.”
I’m not totally sure what “chickenball” is, let alone looks like when crossed with cinematic possibility and 2 additional Stooges.
While my favorite film of the so-called Cave of Trouble period remains Spontaneous Combustion1, The Cave of Trouble in: Search for the Chupacabra2 was always my friends’ favorite. Shot a couple years before the launch of Protozoic, the film was never officially put on the site3.
In hopes that people will surf in and watch the movie, or any of the movies on this site for that matter, I’ve drafted some comments below to try and drum up some hits.
The Cave of Trouble in: Search for the Chupacabra remains the hardest hitting documentary and DOCUMENT EVER in the HISTORY OF MAN to deal with the blood sucking DEMON known as the chupacabra. Often derided as a spoof and inept Blair Witch, The Cave of Trouble in: Search for the Chupacabra is a new level of FEAR, TERROR and BLOOD SUCKING GOATs. Shot on location in Salisbury, Maryland, home of FRANK PERDUE, whether you are a hardcore cryptologist, lonely housewife, Japanese exchange student, or the Surf Punks’ # 1 fan, The Cave of Trouble in: Search for the Chupacabra is mandatory viewing.
Tagline: Flush Toilets, Not Fish is about toilets, fish and domestic responsibility.
Mike’s Comments: When we were kids, my cousins had two goldfish named Frank Ferdue (sic) and Doo-Doo Head. Tim and I were obsessed with the point as children. Through the years, we’ve continued to talk and laugh about it. It was funny on many levels. One, because our cousins named Frank Ferdue after a Maryland local celebrity. Secondly, that they changed the last name’s first letter to an “F”, creating a half-baked alliteration. Why didn’t they just call the fish Frank Perdue? Because that name was taken? Because they were mispronouncing “Perdue”?
No one will ever know the answer to those questions. However, if an answer is to be found, it is probably to be found in the second goldfish’s name, Doo-Doo Head. This was the whammy, and what made the amusing Frank Ferdue name comedy gold and Frank Ferdue and Doo-Doo Head the Smothers Brothers of fish-comedy.
In Flush Fish, Not Toilets, Jim Ferdue’s name is, of course, inspired by Frank Ferdue. (For those not from the Eastern Shore, Jim Perdue is the son of Frank Perdue and now runs the chicken empire.) There’s no Doo-Doo Head counterpart among the fish, mainly because there is no recreating a legend. There is, however, plenty of potty talk, so Doo-Doo Head lives on in spirit.
Megan’s Comments: I would like to point out that there was a very good reason why I told Mike to flush the toilet, and why I wasn’t going anywhere near it. It should also be known that although Mike walked offscreen with a ever-so-fake look of guilt plastered on his face, he did not flush the toilet for another 15 minutes after I spoke those words.
Death is another oil change
hatched in my day's way.
Stupid death and stupid dying.
Who made it anyway?
The old hen pecking God?
Well, I'll cock and sock his nose,
make him roost the golden egg
chooking as I hearsing go.
For from the shells I sell to L-OC-als
I'll build feather couping waves,
Buy up Death's garage and scythe,
chicken farming from the grave.
