The Sleestak Ate George Bush...

Does anyone remember Land of the Lost, the kids' show from the mid-70's? I watched it pretty religiously... it was about a girl named Holly, who was transported, with her dad and brother (who was really cute... which was very possibly the primary reason I watched the show), through a portal to a prehistoric dimension. They spent most of their time battling dinosaurs and other creatures, including the Sleestak, these icky, lizard-men who had nasty tempers, all the while trying to find their way home. Cool, right?

Anyway, I had a dream last night and though I don't usually remember them, this one was still playing clearly in my head when I woke up. I was in the Land of the Lost, running away from the Sleestak, all alone and peeing-in-my-pants scared. I ran into a cave and who's sitting there, but George Bush... W, in the flesh, lounging around a little campfire, roasting a chicken. Instead of being happy to see another human being (yeah, OK, human being might be a bit of a stretch), I pointed my finger at him and hollered,

"YOU! What the hell are you doing here?!" (I'm really shocked I didn't swear bigger.)

He replied (sounding as smarmy as ever), "I'm just roasting my chicken."

"I'll roast your chicken," I screamed at him (I'm assuming I meant that figuratively and not literally... though I did wake up hungry), and I ran to the mouth of the cave, waving frantically at the Sleestak who were hunting for me. "He's in here! Here's your dinner!" I waved them to the cave and then ran like hell into the jungle, I presume, to wait for the screams. Sadly, I woke up before W became lizard food.

I wonder if they ate his chicken, too?

Note: Don't bother analyzing. The dream was most likely the result of a conversation I had last night with a Republican friend about evolution versus creationism and the theory of a divine plan. I contend that George Bush proves both the theory of evolution (he just got stuck half-way to human) AND the absence of a divine plan (no God, unless he's a sick S.O.B., would have planned for that dimwit to rule a kindergarten class, let alone a big chunk of the free world). Argument ends. Dream ensues.

Oh, and I've no idea where the chicken came from.

Diane, I have not thought of the Land of the Lost for ages!!!! Must be close to 40 years!!! I completely forgot about this, thank you for bringing this back, I enjoy memories that I have not ever thought about.
With that said, I will not analyze your dream, as you requested.;))) I know for a fact I have dreams tons weirder than yours.;)

Charmaine said...

Ha ha ha ha ha. (Momentary silence) Ha ha ha ha.

That is the funniest thing I have ever read.

Oh dear, here it comes again, "ha ha ha ha ha".

Just to provide context, last night I dreamt I had a child in an airport. I was walking with him down the gate as people watched adoringly. Then just prior to boarding my handsome husband arrived to say good-bye and one of those beeping airport golf cart thingees ran over him.

What in the hell does THAT mean? ha ha

SSP said...

oh yes i remember Land of the Lost...they were canoeing and went off a cliff into this amazing world! Holly's pigtails drove me insane, but I did think her brother was cute. That show,and Sigmund and the Sea Monsters were why the only day of the week I set my alarm was SATURDAY!!

I liked your dream ;-)

I can only say, what can be scarier than the prospect of ending up with Dubbya in a cave, or any other confined space. On the other hand, you would not have to bother thinking up a conversation, because he wouldn't be able to keep one going without prompts from advisers! But let's put your dream in the nightmarish category! ;-)

Charmaine said...

swenglishexpat,

If I were in a cave with Dubbya I'm not sure both of us would emerge...alive.

Diane,

If I had been drinking diet pepsi when reading your last blog post I would now be on my way to the drycleaners.

I am not a George Bush fan either...actually I am not fond of George Sr. or Jeb Bush either. I do belive in a Devine Plan...I don't always understand what's going on but I do believe there is a Devine Plan!
I know I can plan an activity...say an engagement party...but because I have guests who behave however they will...my plan is a party that may or may not come out how I planned. But I had a plan!

Mel said...

*waving my arms around in front of me* schhhhhhhhhh, schhhhhhhhhhh, schhhhhhhh.

That's me being a Sleestak. Ya scert?

Oh would that some giant lizard might eat W. That might go on my Christmas list. 43 days, 16 hours, 51 minutes - BABY! And may he fade away into obscurity!

Sam_I_am said...

haha. I wish I had blog worthy dreams like that. You go from pee-youe-pants scared to infuriated. :-)

Diane said...

Zuz... I hadn't thought of it in years either :)

Charmaine... I once pushed my ex in front of one of those airport golfcart thingees... but alas, it was only a dream, too. Sigh. Oh, and I'm glad you didn't have to go to the drycleaner! Those buggers are expensive!

SSP... I loved Sigmund! And HR Puff-n-Stuff, too!

Swenglishexpat... I agree... nightmare... but he DID get eaten by lizards... so that was cool :)

Ronda... I'm just hoping no one had THIS planned for me... Lordy, lordy (no pun intended ;)

Mel... you don't skeer me.

Sam... well, Bush makes me pee-in-my-pants infuriated, so it was a good transition ;)

Amy McMean a.k.a McSunshine said...

Thats really funny. I love it when i can remember the dream that clearly.

P.S.
I'm sure they ate the chicken also. I mean they'll need something to get the taste of that piece if crap out of their mouth.

Chris said...

Let's hope it was less a dream... more a foreshadowing...

Did you know about this?

Gosh I loved that show! What I wouldn't give for some of that bling they used in the rock/transporter thing. Oh ~ and they probably would have tossed GWB to the dinos proclaiming it a tuff old bird not worth the chewing hassle.

Diane said...

Amy... that made me snort!

Chris... I didn't know about that! I'm sad to see Will Ferrell is going to be in it (while some people think he's a comic genius, I find him, well, rather an idiot). I MIGHT still see it, however, just for shits and giggles.

Diane said...

Blarney... at least Grumpy the T-Rex was always waiting for a snack ;)

Lee said...

Never heard of a Sleestak but if it feeds on GWB it has just moved up my list of favourite animals.

J Cosmo Newbery said...

And what on earth did you eat before you went to bed?

Heinous said...

I loved Land of the Lost. Sid and Marty Krofft ruled!

A Lawyer Mom's Musings said...

I'm w/Lee and Heinous, if they'll have me.

Jenners said...

Oh my gosh...I haven't thought about Sleestacks in forever!

What a classic dream. If only it could come true!

mo.stoneskin said...

Mmm, on the other hand, surely even evolution would create Dubya, and God could quite easily allow someone of Dubya's, ahem, calibre, to test us all.

Heather said...

Ooooh I LOVED Land of the Lost. I had forgotten about it. Your dream sounds almost as crazy as some of the ones I have. We gotta lay off the drugs, Diane. Seriously...

Diane said...

Lee... they're pretty nasty, but obviously have some redeeming qualities (if crap taste).

J Cosmo... I know... you'd think there was a spicy burrito involved in that one, wouldn't you?

Jim... Saturday morning ruled when they were kings!

Lawyer Mom... they'll have you... they're nice that way ;)

Jenners... well, we still have a month or so to go... you never know...

Mo... well, I'd say we failed in 2004... and made up a bit this year. But that was one test I wouldn't want to have to re-take.

Heather... that's me without drugs... I can't even imagine what I'd concoct on them!

French Fancy said...

Hiya - I've seen you over at Henry's place and thought I would pop in. I've never heard of Land of the Lost but I have heard of Bad Dreams and this sure sounds like one to me :)
