I just like how Ultra Budhha looks like Captain Planet.

Also heard the Atomic Bong joke before during Robin William's live on Broadway standup.

"India has the Bomb, Pakistan has the Bomb.. But I can tell you one country that doesn't. Jamaica, mon'. They might have the Atomic BONG, but I'd much rather go to war with that than the bomb. With the Atomic Bomb there's destruction and devastation... with the Bong there's music and celebration, mon!"

[paraphrased more or less]

It probably has something to do with the fact that the Buddah was trying to ease suffering.

Ok, fair enough. I had somehow been living in a cave all this time and knew nothing of Ultraman. But hey, in my defense, they do at least sport the same color scheme. Razz

Note the distinct lack of Green Mullet and Ted Turnerness.

Look around for the Middle Path. Sorry for the late response. I guess I was just under the impression that not everyone understood it. I guess I'm wrong. Smile
