IT'S A COOKBOOK!!! by Hybrid_Sunshine
IT'S A COOKBOOK!!! by Hybrid_Sunshine


Near's next case also involved a book, but he didn't think it'd be THAT kind of book...

The book is titled "To Serve Man." People who've seen that Twilight Zone episode will understand this joke and it's been used in many different things. If not, then check out this video which contains the main highlights of the episode:

And the movie Naked Gun 2 1/2 had a brief reference to it which can be seen here:

The reference to the "cookbook" was also used in the animated movie Madagascar on the plane during the lemur meeting when a lemur shouts during the freak out about the "foosa" attacking while holding a book titled To Serve Lemur, "It's a cookbook! IT'S A COOKBOOK!!" I can't find a clip to show that, but it happens during that scene if you happen to have the DVD.

I just think Near would be very... disturbed about a cookbook dedicated to listing the best ways to "enjoy" a human being in various recipes. Far more disturbed than he was about the Death Note. Again, this was fueled by a spout of randomness on my part. ^__^U

*This is now under Crossovers since the cookbook is from a different show.*

**I'm labeling this as a spoiler due to the "big twist" to the title of the book. Along with spoiling the ending of that particular Twilight Zone episode. Sorry, y'all! XD **

KelekiahGaladrianHehe, funny picture. I love Near's expression.

I've never seen Twilight Zone, but by the way you described it, I can figure out why that's so funny.

That's really cool. I like randomness.

Hmm . . . yeah, I'd put it under crossovers because of that.

I like it! Awesome job! *favs*

Hybrid_SunshineThanks! ^__^ It's one of my favorite expressions to draw and I thought, "Ah, what the heck, let's find an excuse to draw it on Near! XD"

Really? You've never seen the Twilight Zone? You have at least heard of it, right? The famed Twilight Zone music? Well, in case you haven't, it's a show from WAY back when created by Rod Serling which featured a bunch of stories with interesting occurences that always had some kind of twist at the end that would "indicate" that you had "stumbled into... the Twilight Zone." *dun DUN* It's mostly shown on the SciFi (now retardedly named SyFy) Channel and on a few other channels. If I just stated the obvious by explaining the show if you had already known about it, sorry. ^__^U I'm a little type-happy today.

Well, the twists aren't usually as funny as this, but this was definitely one of the interestingly/disturbingly hilarious ones. And that's why a bunch of things use it, including me. XP Randomness is AWESOME.

KelekiahGaladrianYou're welcome! I can't do cool expressions like that, but I think you make it look really cool. Ooh, excuses to do random things. That's always fun :P

Nope, never seen it. Heard of it yes, I know a little bit about it, but not much. I have some sort of version of the main theme but it's on a CD that's somewhere in my bedroom. Um, I might be stupid here, but what the heck is the Twilight Zone? I have no idea what the heck it even is. I don't think I have the SciFi channel. And that's fine. I didn't ever really know what the show was about.

Ah, I see. Well, I like funny, and twists can be really cool if not funny sometimes. Yes yes, it totally is.

Hybrid_SunshineThe "Twilight Zone" is pretty much our world at first glance, but it's a place where "abnormal" things happen that wouldn't normally happen in reality. Such as the aliens landing promising world peace and prosperity while, really, they tricked us into getting onto their ship to be eaten, thinking we'd be taken to a great utopia. It's a "place" where next to nothing is what it seems. Which makes it the Twilight Zone.

"You're traveling to another dimension. A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land where its boundaries are that of imagination. Your next stop... the Twilight Zone." DAAAAduhdududum

The dude says that at the beginning of every episode. So, the Twilight Zone is basically a dimension that weird things happen to characters in a seemingly normal environment that is only revealed at the end of every episode, but you slowly figure it out. That a better explanation? The links show examples of this if you haven't checked them out yet. :)

KelekiahGaladrianHmm . . . I think so. I think I get it now. No, I haven't checked the links out yet but I have a feeling it might be smart to do.

Choco_Chick_87Oddly enough, I actually watched that episode on Syfi's Fourth of July Twilight Zone Marathon XD I thought it was pretty hilarious too. "Mr. (insert name here), please eat. We wouldn't want you to lose any weight..." XD

Hybrid_SunshineXD I love that quote. And I feel kinda bad for that one alien who kept the dude on the ship. He got kicked in the face a lot there! I have a feeling he'll specially order that dude for himself. XP Sweet tasty revenge with a side of crackers.

That was a sweet marathon. *nod*
