After that, I (¿we all?) need a palate cleanser...

She was built like a brick *ahem*

Maybe it recurs because it's familiar. Twisting a puppet from something cute to something scary follows a lot of horror logic. All the better if it's intimately known, and Sesame Street is pretty universal to a few generations--a mythos you might say...

With his fez and electric banjo,
he cut a figure dashing.
So, I dialed my kazoo to eleven
and gave him a "sound" thrashing.

It was inevitable that those phones would end up in heads. If only we'd figured out the roaming settings sooner.
So many lost.

It was only upon kneeling before Zod that I finally realized Zod had no intention of kneeling after me. I'd been tricked!

Shame on you, nevermore_66! You 86'd the Grammar Nazi for a bit. But now she's back on her feet and swinging hard...

"you're" is incorrect, and there are some formatting issues. A corrected version might be:

"Greetings, Mr. MacGuffin. Your résumé says that you're both desirable and important."

"Aye... but I canna' say why!"

"Singularity Left Me Behind," said a sign on a Sony vendomat.

I put a coin in its slot.

"Domo origato, Mr Roboto," it said.

I never programmed that as her ringtone. Smart phone, eh?
