Hey guys, it’s Sunday and we’re back for a bonus blogisode. It is snowing outside and everything has closed and stopped running – apart from us! There will be no replacement blog service for this show. Let’s go…
Chris: Hey Esther
Esther: Hiya Chris
Chris: How are you doing? There’s all this snow around today.
Esther: I’ll be honest I’m kinda over the snow already. Like it’s March now…. spring where you at???
Chris: I know, snow is so hipster it breaks all the rules. Well I have some good news, can I get a drumroll please? *drumroll* we now have 50 people following this blog! So I guess we have a posse now
Esther: Yay! I know we’re like an actual cult now. I reckon we should make mundanevision t-shirts for our followers…
Chris: That’s a great idea. Sloth, will you look into that, please? The sloth may be slow but he is meticulous.
Esther: He’s like the tortoise in the hare and the tortoise… he’ll win in the end. We believe in you Sloth!
Chris: I would have said the exact same thing but a lot slower. So, global warming is real as we have snow in march, and I’ve thought of a great way of getting Donald Trump to finally believe in global warming. Just tell him that’s how the mexicans are getting in.
Esther: He’d probably do something stupid like deport all snow or imprison any weather forecasters who predict snow. I like the idea of people sledging through border patrol so fast they can’t be stopped.. really lightens the tone of immigration.
Chris: That is a great tag line for a film. They came in the snow, under the guise of vengeful weather.
Esther: Immigration in films could be made a lighter topic by people having snowball fights with border police. Like some combination of an super serious action film and that snowball fight scene in Elf.
Chris: I would go and see Black Panther if they had snowball fights in it. ‘Get this white substance out of our film, black’s only!’.
Esther: Anyway, I’d love to see an animation film made from snow. Kinda like a cross between Wallace and Gromit and the Snowman. Maybe Nick Park could get planning? He’d just need a freezer to keep it all in, and at least there’s no way a freezer can catch fire!
Chris: Absolutely, I like this film already. I have a feeling it won’t win any Oscars though, it would be too white! That whole Oscar white wash scandal all over again.
Esther: Yeah maybe we should avoid it in that case. although, snowmen don’t really have races, when you make one, you don’t think of it as black or white. Maybe this is a progressive step forward in a culture of acceptance where issues around race no longer divide people?
Chris: You see, we’re not only entertaining, we’re now breaking new ground in race relations. Why can’t everyone just get along, blogs included?
Esther: I’m with you on that one. Sloth, take a break from researching mundanevision t-shirts and get onto Nick Park, we have an idea to pitch him.
Chris: Oh wait, blogs don’t see race because the background to WordPress is white, and the writing is black.
Esther: In fairness, it is pretty standard to have a white page with black writing… although maybe we could switch it up and lead the way in improved race relations by using a different colour font and background on this blogisode?
Chris: We’ve solved everything and the world is in harmony because of us, and all the blogs even like each other. WordPress is going to crash just from people reading this blogisode and for incorporating our ideas into their own blogs. If only we could somehow break this stigma around gender discrimination, e.g. transgender people, then this blog would be the perfect present to give our fifty followers. Oh wait, white is a neutral colour and it is white outside, so the whole day is gender neutral! How lucky that we decided to write this bonus blogisode on a day when it would snow? And therefore make the world see no colour or race.
Esther: Well on behalf of everyone here at Mundanevision, myself, Chris, sloth and the gang, we’d like to thank all of our loyal followers for reading our blogisodes and we hope you enjoy the snow (or tolerate it, if you’re anything like me!).
Well, how do you follow that? I can’t believe we’re up to 50 followers, I am quite overwhelmed that this idea I had over three years ago now has been read and enjoyed by so many people that write so many different blogs. If that’s not blogging-inclusion I don’t know what is. Peace
