Flight of the Blue Butterfly
Sunday, August 16, 2009

It used to just be Lunesta. And that was a moth.

I've wanted to say this for almost two years, and I can't take it any more so I will:

They're invading. MWHA HA HA HA!

The big blue butterflies have landed. And they want our cashy money. They want it bad.

If I see one more blue butterfly in any advert spot, commercial break, label, card, or logo, I'm going to start wondering about octopus code. You know, central hub, sticky tentacles everywhere. It'll blow your mind. (not mandatory).

Actually, the allergy has now extended to monarchs and tiger swallowtails which are also large and pretty and heavily used. But not as much as the blue morpho, or pseudo blue morpho (ie big blue butterfly). They even pop up in non-butterfly things, such as the shape being formed out of various substances, or coming together and flutterbying away.

I am thoroughly curious. And a little disturbed.

Or perhaps we've just discovered/formed a new kind of cultural symbol.

I can't help but think of the convicts in that one scene in the movie Papillon might've had the right idea.

PN is going to have a field day with this blog. XD :) Yeah, he says that the butterflies are a symbol powerful clandestine far-reaching homosexual sex-slave rings.

Me, I think butterflies are pretty. In a weird way. Have you ever looked at them up close? Their faces are kind of bizzare.
