Little maggots with wings
Eww. I could start and end my commentary about today’s GMM right there. Eww. But there was a lot more going on today, so I’ll keep going.
I love it when Rhett and Link get scientific, even when it doesn’t turn into a rhinky thing. They look very convincing in white lab jackets, and pretty good too. This episode reminded me of my short lived science studies, when I took a lab course in microbiology. It involved growing stuff on petri dishes, and some of the stuff we dealt with included mildew and bacteria. I was scarred for life by the stinky things…
I’m always shocked when I see just how well a food item is preserved, when you’d expect it to rot. The hamburger was very concerning - just how many preservatives do they put on our food? And where was all the mildew I was expecting to see - if I leave stuff out for two months where I live, it’ll be green and fuzzy all over. In fact, it’ll only take a couple of weeks to get bread or fruit turn into a cloud of spores. I wonder if the food here is less preserved than what they have in the US? Or is it just that our climate is more humid…?
When Link found the living maggots in the burrito, Rhett turned all philosophical - “Little maggots with wings - isn’t that what we all are?” Another t-shirt worthy quote. It was interesting how Rhett was clearly more grossed out by the smell of the foods when Link freaked out when he saw the creepy crawlies, but didn’t even wear his mask for most of the time. I hope they caught all the critters before their entire studio got infected with bugs.
Mmm, so good, I wish there was a way describe monosodiumglutamate in as perfectly describing and funny way in Finnish. I love Chinese food, and a lot of that love is directed to the delisciousness that is MSG - even when I know it’s far from healthy. That fresh chow mein looked so good…only I want mine with tofu.
But, the announcements they made. I made a little mental happy dance when I heard there will be no summer break, and that there will be a Buddy System season 2. Good Mythical Summer sounds awesome, and the guest hosts sound amazing. GameGrumbs, VSauce, vlogbrothers, Hannah Hart, Mamrie Hart and Grace Helbig, Nerdy Nummies. That sounds really good, these are some pretty awesome hosts! And I’m not even saying this just because Rhett asked us to be nice, I really mean it. I am just very happy to be a Mythical beast right now.
After all the announcements and being semiserious for a moment, the GMMore ended in a hilarious way. For a moment I was positive Rhett would convince Link to eat some of those noodles. And what the heck did Link mean when he said he would eat it for love? There was a slightly rhinky moment there, and just like Link, I was very sorry that Rhett had his mask on - I so wanted to see his face there…
I couldn’t really see the maggots Link saw on the burrito, so I emphasized one of them a bit for this screen cap. That would freak me out, too.
