Ah, for one moment I thought that last one was about a Church of Bros. and was truly disturbed.

Well, something is worshipped there, at least.

They're twin brothers, I have no wish to know what they might be worshipping.

Themselves? Self-worship doesn't carry the stigma (or stigmata) it once did.

Yeah, but when you can self worship your identical twin it gets layers of weird...

You do know what fanfic writers get up to, yes? Can't be any worse than that.

I'm aware of some of it, and I have a horrible, horrible feeling that the word "twincest" is not one I have just coined.

First time I heard that one was to do with either Suikoden or Angel Sanctuary, and I don't remember which.

I have my quirks Lord knows, but I can think of nothing about that concept which would ever make me want to know any more about it.

So I look at that video and think "Wow, this girl's voice is awesome!"

And then I see the comments. D: That voice is unnatural! Or was, anyway.

(And they're still a lot more masculine than a lot of current bands!)

And believe it or not, one of them went on to acting, Luke Goss was, amongst other things in his career, Prince Nuada in "Hellboy II" .

Oh I believe it, I've seen weirder things. I mean, California had a friggin' action movie "actor" as a governator. :p

'Has'. 'HAS a friggin' action movie "actor" as a governator'. We've still got him.

My answer could also be applied to Ronald Reagan.

Yeah, I'm sticking to that explanation!

Reagan was never called Governator.

Also did fewer action flicks. (And a lot more television.)

You go on stickin', son, 'cept one day you're gonna run plumb outta sticky stuff, and then you're gonna fall right off the ceilin' an' hit the floor.

Going back to the twincest thing...funnily enough, Prince Nuada's mentioned on the TV Tropes page for it...

If you've ever heard a Michael Jackson song, this isn't so hard to wrap your head around.

Counter-tenors or men with a decent falsetto have it tough;

"Back in the day, being a counter-tenor was nothing to be ashamed of, nowadays they tend to be 6'4" tall, built like rugby players and have enormous beards because they feel they have something to prove" - Richard Stilgoe

Yeah, but that's Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson. He had very little... natural about him.

Is this where that "Earth orbits the sun/wife orbits Shakespeare's dick" panel comes from?

Yeah, and it was Tycho Brahe (not the Penny Arcade one) not Shakespeare.

Beaton's style here seems to be evoking a bit of Jules Feiffer (whom I keep meaning to post here, and probably will keep putting off until he dies and I do a "why this guy you probably don't know about was awesome and needed more love" post).
