Today is 4/20, otherwise known as the day where people smoke a ton of weed. Particularly among college students.
Below you will see a weed PSA featuring the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. In the clip, a shrimpy kid is at his locker (who had lockers in elementary school?) when a bully comes up behind him and offers him a joint or three. You know he’s a bully because he has a mullet.
Anyway, at first the kid doesn’t know what to say when propositioned with the joints. Cut to a classroom where a bunch of eight year olds (seriously, what kind of grade school is this? The only reason I knew what drugs were in elementary school is because of the D.A.R.E. program, which kind of seems counterproductive in hindsight) watching to see how the tiny kid will react.
Then the TMNT ask the kids, who are watching this encounter on television, what the kid at his locker should do. A five year old girl (age approximated) says he should get a teacher. Sounds like a good idea. Michelangelo says that he should order a pizza.
Finally, we see how Joey handles the situation, after the bully calls him a chicken, and clucks like obnoxious kids used to do. He then says the line that probably got thousands of kids beat up across the country:
“I’m not a chicken, you’re a turkey!”
I don’t even know what that means. Donatello goes on to say that drug dealers are dorks, so maybe a turkey is a dork? And does anybody else believe the bully would just take that? How many bullied kids do you think tried to use that line and promptly got their asses beat?
I just find it funny that Michelangelo suggests the pizza move, which is ironic considering that’s what little Joey probably would have done had he taken the bully up on his offer.
