The world becomes a dream....

« Reply #900 on: Today at 10:53:56 AM »

When I was in middle school I used to come home, sit down in my little uniform before tennis, and watch this strange PBS game show called Where in the World is Carmen San Diego? It had this giant map of the world on the WGBH studio floor and kids would have a minute to stick cones on the countries the announcer would call out.

The espresso-cheerful announcer would shout, "Ready, set, go! Carmen went to Russia! To Russia!"

And the kid would race over carrying a cone and put it somewhere on Russia, which was a pity-kiss since it covered a fifth of the board.

Then the announcer would say, "Carmen went to Botswana! Botswana!"

And the kid would stumble and go, "Uh, pass?"

"Carmen went to France! To France!"

Okay, France was good. The kid knew France....

"Carmen went to Chad! To Chad!"

Suspense would build, did the player know where Chad was? Yes she did!

If after dashing around the studio the tweenager placed ten cones in a minute, he or she got a mail-in certificate for an atlas. Yep, an atlas was the prize.

I think in retrospect that show was less about geography than it was a hidden effort to get young people to exercise.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
