Justlex Roadtrip #7

“How much do you think it costs to adopt a penguin?”

“Too much.”

“Seriously, like-”

“You’re not adopting any penguins, Mr. Popper,” Alex laughs. 

From within the gift shop of the Aquarium, Justin gives him a strange look. “Mr. Popper?” 

“Yeah, you know, the book? Mr. Popper’s Penguins? Where he gets a bunch of penguins and they wreck havoc?” Alex explains.

“Wasn’t that a movie-?”

“We don’t talk about that monstrosity.”

“Uh… okay?” Justin says, puzzled by Alex’s suddenly serious tone. 

 “Didn’t you read it in elementary school?” asks Alex. 

“No,” Justin replies. 

Alex shakes his head and rests a hand on Justin’s shoulder. “You poor child.” 

“I was never a reader.”

“And that’s where you went wrong.”

“I think I saw the movie-”

“I’m gonna stop you right there,” Alex holds his hand up. He shoves a plush penguin into Justin’s arms. It’s soft with big eyes and rosy cheeks. “I’ll buy this for you if you never mention that eyesore again.” 

Justin can’t help but chuckle. “Dude, I didn’t think you were so passionate about shit like that.” 

“Do you want the penguin or not?”

“…Yes, please.” 

Along with the plush penguin, they also buy two shot glasses with whales on them, t-shirts, and a keychain with an anglerfish on it. The keychain’s for Alex, of course, but Justin keeps eyeing it when they’re at lunch and Alex’s putting his keys on it. 

“I can’t believe you bought a Satan keychain,” Justin says with a mouthful of fries. 

“Anglerfish,” Alex corrects. “Look, it lights up.” He pushes a button and the little light on the antenna glows. Justin glares at the tiny light. 

“I’m gonna have nightmares.”

“This’s suppose to be fun, remember?”

“I was having a good time until you took me to hell.”

“Oh, my God, Justin,” Alex laughs. 

Justin smiles. “It was fun. I’ve never seen shit like that in real life, y’know? I mean, it’s a lot different than on a TV screen.” 

“Maybe you, me and Zach can study fish together.”

“I wouldn’t go that far.”

“No?”

“He’d get tired of us real quick,” Justin says. He reaches over and places his hand on Alex’s thigh.  

Alex raises a brow. “And what would make him so tired, hm?” he asks, leaning over and stealing a fry off Justin’s tray. The hand moves up his thigh just as a worker comes by to wipe the table next to theirs. Alex stops the traveling hand, moving it over to sit in Justin’s lap. The worker eyes them with a frown but says nothing. The two stare at the worker until he leaves. 

Justin’s about to speak when Alex’s phone goes off. 

Alex sighs. “My dad.” He answers it. “Hello?”

Justin continues to steal fries while Alex talks to his father. It’s not a compelling or complex conversation from what Justin can gather. When Alex hangs up, he’s suddenly exhausted. Talking to his father does that. 

Justin’s knee knocks against his. “We good?” he asks. 

“Yep.” Alex goes to grab a fry, only to find they’re gone. “…Did you eat all my fries?”

Justin shrugs. “I have no idea what you’re talking about,” he says quickly. 

Alex leans back in his seat, glaring at Justin with a slightly parted mouth. “…You totally ate all my fries.”

“Nope.”

“Yes, you did.”

“Did not.”

Alex shakes his head. “…That’s it!” he exclaims, throwing his hands up. “I want a divorce!”

Justin pauses mid-drink and raises a questioning brow at Alex’s overly serious face. “…What?”

“I want a divorce.”

“…What the fuck are you talking about? We’re not married.”

“Not anymore because we’re getting divorced.”

“What-”

“We’re getting divorced and I’m taking the kids.”

“Kids-?”

“And the house.”

“Alex-”

“And the dog.”

“Woah, hold up.” Justin sets his drink down and turns to fully face Alex. “You can take the kids, the house, and all my money, but you are not taking the dog.”

Alex leans forward, staring into Justin’s eyes as he whispers, “I’m taking the fucking dog.”

Alex’s harsh tone is what makes Justin lose it. People at other tables turn to look at them as Justin laughs uncontrollably. The worst of it, though, is that Alex manages to keep a straight face, shaking his head and sipping his own drink in mock disappointment.

Penguin of the Week!

Every Sunday we’ll be doing a penguin of the week where we feature a certain penguin species or a penguin from TV, film, literature or just everyday life.

Today’s penguin, well penguins, are Mr. Popper’s Penguins!

Mr. Popper’s Penguins is originally a children’s book about a man named Mr. Popper who unexpectedly acquires 12 silly penguins. He first receives a penguin who he names Captain Cook. Then he receives a female penguin named Greta who then lays 10 eggs. With so many penguins, Mr. Popper is barely able to pay his bills. He eventually has to return the penguins to their homes in the Antarctic, but he sure has some silly adventures with them! This kids book is critically acclaimed and won the Newbery Honor Award. 

It was also turned into a movie that starred Jim Carrey as Mr. Popper and actually had some adorable live penguins on set! The movie didn’t perform so well, but it’s still pretty funny. Just imagine these little guys pooping all over your bed and kitchen table!

Movie Trilogy Idea: "Scooby Doo"

There have been rumors that WB wants to reboot “Scooby-Doo” again in live action form. This, being the third time since 2000 with the original live action film.

I grew up with these characters, and I have enjoyed these characters. Even when they do stupid crap like this: 

External image

Ugh.

Anyway, with this rumor kinda just lumbering about… I’m gonna jump on, in case it does happen. I would like it to be done well.

First, our trilogy’s set up:

The movies star Tom Revolori (from “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming”) as Fred Jones, Chandler Riggs (from “The Walking Dead) as "Shaggy” Rogers, Camren Bicondova (from “Gotham”) as Velma Dinkley, Madeline Carroll (from “Flipped” and “Mr. Popper’s Penguins”) as Daphne Blake, and Frank Welker returning as the voice of Scooby-Doo himself. Using, what I would suggest, “Weta Digital” for creature design and special effects, and distributed by “Warner Bros." 

The three movies will tell an overarching story of the friendships and relationships that these characters share. Whether it’s solving a mystery, or having pizza and Coke™ on a Friday night.

So with that, let’s discuss the individual plots.
