Cthulhu the Musical, Tentacular, Tentacular! 33

Tyler Too writes "Beware, mortals: Cthulhu has returned, and he's armed with bacon and an unhealthy obsession with geek brains. It's a really bizarre and hilarious choose-your-own-adventure saga starring the Great Old One himself, Sergey Brin, Anonymous, David Pogue, and non-Euclidian tacos with bacon."

    Taste our new non-euclidean tacos with bacon. It's good enough for Cthulhu!

      mmmm, bacon, oh beautiful bacon.
      Ironically at the Asian buffet I dined at last night there was squid in hotsauce w/peppers and veggies in salad form that I sprinkled bacon bits on and enjoyed the texture of the little suckered tentacles. Coincidence? Absolutely. However I believe in Hoffstadters recursive universe.
      mmmm, bacon.

  • Simply put .... I cant take it anymore. Bring on April 2nd ..... please .... pretty pretty, please!
    • The best /. April Fool's stories are the ones that are actual links to other sites doing actual funny things for April 1st.

      And this one is pretty funny if I do say so myself, but then again I ate too many non-Euclidean Tacos with Bacon and, after meeting the Tentacular one himself, well, ended up like this: "You have a powerful temptation to make Linux your primary operating system and start coding in emacs. So this is madness..."

      Apparently meaning that I was already mad/i..

    Seriously folks, this is a slashdot tradition here! It may not be a good tradition, but many traditions aren't. The admins here have been doing this for over ten years, if the whining didn't work in the 90's, it sure as hell ain't gonna get you anywhere now, so STFU and come back tomorrow!
    • You forget ...... some of us are /. junkies ....... and I am on GMT time ..... so I have had more April Fool abuse than you :P

    Why settle for the lesser evil?

  • Everybody knows Alcohol knocks them out, the fool!

    Seriously, I usually end up dead in these "chose your own adventure" stories. I totally kicked ass this time.

  • As Lovecraftian musicals go I prefer Shoggoth on the Roof, a Lovecraftian version of Fiddle on the Roof. [] is the opening song (they can all be found on Youtube).
    • Ahh, yes - the Howard Philip Lovecraft Historical Society. They also recorded some very nice Lovecraftian Christmas, err... Solstice Carols with the Dagon Tabernacle Choir. Here [] is an example. Come to think of it, that is the only physical CD I bought in the last 3 years, the guys deserve it. Check out their homepage [], if you don't know them. They also made an absolutely brilliant silent movie titled "Call of Cthulhu".
  • This is pretty good as Lovecraft fan fiction goes. I'm reminded of a very short piece I wrote a long time ago: []

  • Not bad actually. Your eventual choices are:
    a) go mad and get eaten
    b) run away and spend the rest of your life haunted by what your saw
    Pretty Lovecraftian. But I will never look at Hulu the same way again.
