Frauds McKenzie

December 5th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 35 Comments


Spuds McKenzie, The Original Party Animal has always favored cuttin’ loose and letting it all hang out.  But not until recently did we realize just how on the edge Spuds’ lifestyle was:

“The ingestion of used hops from home brewing can be fatal to dogs. Some breeds have a toxic reaction that triggers the onset of Malignant Hyperthermia (MH), a life threatening condition in which the body uncontrollably overheats.”Source

From party hearty to hearty stoppy, from Guru of Good Times to Feeling Like You Just Watched “The Love Guru”, from “It’s Getting Hot in Herre” to “Seriously, It’s Way Too Hot in Herre, Why Did I Ingest All Those Hops?”



Fortunately, the scientifically proven link between cigarettes and smoothness levels in camels has still not been rebutted.

    Somehow I always knew that hops were bad for dogs… after all alot of other things are bad for dogs…like chocolate, or caramel, or pen ink, or poison.

    Frankly I think the smoking camel is way more cooler than Spuds McKenzie. I mean when you see that camel with a cig in his mouth and shades on his face you are automatically overwhelmed by the utter coolness of his appearance, but with Spuds all you have is an ordinary bull terrier that is nothing but a puppet for Bud Light’s advertisment franchise to dress with memorabelia.

    And I already knew that the booze had a negative effect on Spuds after I saw maul a party goer on Family Guy….

    Cigarettes do make marmosets smooth though. Though, marmosets are awesome anyway.

    Conor have you been watching a lot of Dateline lately? First you bust dancing disney Italians and now Spuds and Bud!
    How did you lure them to your kitchen for that awkward conversation before the police show up and begging begins.
    What is next? Evil Christmas tree top stars and angels that convince you to bring them into your home and then ‘fall’ on you when you’re not looking?
    Thank you, sir, for your vigilance!

    Hey! Evil Christmas tree-top decorations are a serious problem! One moment your looking at your christmas tree and enjoying the holiday splendor that it represents, then the next your getting your ear knawed-off by a plastic figurine of a cherub!

    Sorry if it brings anyone down, but I just received news that Forrest J Ackerman passed away today.

    You will be missed, Forry, you took science fiction and general geekdom, and turned it into the mainstream.,0,6140169.storylink

    I read the news earlier today on Fangoria’s site. I don’t mean to interrupt the Spudsgate investigation, but wanted to show some solidarity with Brian O. in expressing sorrow at Forry’s passing.

    Resume Spudsbashing activities…

    Wow, that’s a real downer.

    Goodnight sweet prince, and may heavenly sci-fi monsters carry thee to thy rest…

    Spuds is awesome in a frat boy kind of way. He knows he’s doing something tremendously stupid and charges ahead with it anyway, because it amuses those watching him vomit.

    And if it’s the hops that are the problem, he just needs to switch to whiskey. Good quality Irish whiskey, a cigar, a will to party, and a pocket full of dreams. Spuds will be back on top in no time.

    Tragic, indeed. He was my first guide into the realm of film weirdness.

    There was no one like him before, and no one will ever replace him.
