Got goo?

Have you ever accidentally typed “goo” into the Google search window?  (You know, Google was there before you thought it was…and you started typing the URL again?)

Well, I did today and discovered The World of Goo.

There they are….just looking at me.

Now, you’re all probably way cooler than I am and already know about the goo balls. Play the game on your iPhones all the time. Damaged your index finger years ago from all the repetitive motion the game requires.

But I can feel them there.

Waiting.

What the flarp?

No, seriously — do you know what ‘flarp’ is?

I encountered this word yesterday for the very first time in an article online.  Thanks to the all-knowing, all-seeing Google, I soon learned that flarp is a liquid-like goo that makes a fart noise when you stick your hand in it.

Brilliant.

Flarp no doubt has a lot of admirers amongst the pre-teen set.  But what makes flarp rise above the farts it attempts to mimic is it smells good.  In fact, it comes in no less than six fruity aromas — orange, lemon, banana, strawberry, pineapple and grape.

You can see how that would beat the real thing every time.

Obviously, flarp entered the scene long after my childhood had passed.  When I was a kid, we were all about Silly Putty.  Silly Putty didn’t make any noise to speak of, and it came in only one color/smell combo — putty grey.

You could copy newspaper print and comics with Silly Putty.  Remember newspapers?  That stuff we used to read before the Internet?

You’re using your flarp right now to make fun of me…aren’t you?

Pfffttt!
