WWSP's "The Alternate Boot!"

See the Reptile Jump!

"Horror, like comedy, has always been something of a reptilian-brain endeavor, unusual among the arts insofar as it is successful only when it is able to produce a single, audible emotional effect - a scream or a laugh - that is primal, cathartic and difficult to understand." - J. Hodgeman

I guess this is what we'd call appealing to the baser instincts...

Now what if you had a government, or many governments employing this same reptilian-brain pleasing technique...? Oh yeah, that might explain an awful lot of what we read in our newspapers, see on our TV screens...we can be so damn smart, except when we're so damn reptilian...
