HELP SEND CHARLIE THE UNICORN TO THE PLAYA!

**SEND CHARLIE THE UNICORN TO BURNING MAN**

He's had his kidney removed, his TV stolen, his horn used for a snowman's nose. And now we're going to turn Charlie the Unicorn into an 28' long x 16' wide art car for Burning Man 2011! (His suffering knows no limits, the poor bastard.) Yes, cruising the Playa with Charlie is a bold dream. But dammit, someone has to do it, and Camp Charlie is stupid enough to think we can pull it off. There's lot's of space for DJ's, dancing, couches, and lounging in the Candy Cave. And of course you can always climb inside Charlie's head and pop out his neck to view the playa.

Want to help? Become a backer at http://kck.st/CandyMt
or learn more about Camp Charlie at http://on.fb.me/CampCharlie

As a backer, you can receive everything from your name in the Candy Cave to music from Charlie's super fab DJs to a playa cruise complete with jerk chicken dinner or even the ever popular WE'LL SIT ON YOUR FACE for $50 - Send us your picture and we'll attach your face to one of our couch seats (plastic coated for durability and hygiene, of course.) And if you back us before Friday, May 6th, at Midnight PST, we'll double it. Two pics for the price of one. Just think, people will be sitting on YOUR face for a week.

If you cant donate to Charlie, no worries. There's lots of ways to help if you like the idea! Repost the kickstarter link and share our video on FB, twitter, your blog or anywhere else.

Can't Charlie fly? Charlie needs to get his ass a job or retire to the glue factory.

Love the idea!
What is the relationship between Unicorns and Sparkle Ponies? Friendly or Enemy? or maybe Frienemy?

Or maybe more of a mutual don't care? Like cows and horses?

What about the relationship between Unicorns, Sparkle Ponies and Pink Elephants? Would the off-spring be Sparkly Pink Uni-phants? Or just Elecorns...

I think my girl friend has a pair of Sparkly Pink Unipants... o wait, Uni-phants! Well, she might have a pair of those too, lol.

Host the first annual Sparkly Pink Uni-phants gathering. Get ahold of the folks at Pink Mammoth, play some loud Trance to gather the sparkle ponies, and you already got a unicorn!
And see what happens as everyone starts dancing and drinking!

Some of my sparkle ponies have horns growing out from the middle of their foreheads. Which doesn't mean that they aren't more closely related to jackalopes than unicorns. ONly DNA will tell for sure.

Who came first the Sparkle Pony or the Unicorn?
Which evolved or digressed into the other?
Or is it possible that they are related but not the same, like Zebras and Horses?

Zebras are just horses that escaped from jail......

My guess is that Sparkle ponies are the girls and unicorns are the boys, you can guess why....

That could be correct!
Though the more common term for the Sparkle Pony's male counter part is the Sparkle Mule. He will typically take care of the sparkle pony, pull her weight around camp, make sure she is ready to party every night.... then reap the benefits. (Sparkle Mule is a glorious beast that gets too little credit on playa)

Anyway, back to super kick ass Unicorn Charlie!

As I understand it, implied benefits that somehow never materialize are a distinguishing feature of Sparkle Pony Syndrome. If Sparkle Mule is letting on that he is getting some, well...

LOL,
Amen!
Though, there are times that any old Burner gal could turn Sparkle Pony. And typically there is a Sparkle Mule to help said Sparkle Pony through this tough time while still allowing her to have fun- and more importantly make sure Sparkle Pony stays safe and hydrated.

I think they call it 'mail order Chinese wife'?
But, after being together almost 6 years, allowing your burner gal to go sparkle pony for an evening or two, does have its benefits- with out being any of the mail order sort!:lol:

I was 'introduced' to CtFU at a funeral. so it doesn't have the best association for me. Plus it's just fucking annoying, gets in your head and stays there.

graidawg - if it's any consultation, we will not actually be playing charlie the unicorn videos and we have a limit on unicorn related songs. But we do think a 20 foot unicorn would be epic! I am an avid unicorn enthusiast though. My brain is biased!

Where's Charlie!

At a congressional hearing today big Oil company CEO's were
being grilled on their recent outrageous gas price increases.

Schumer of New York said:
"Well, you'd have an easier time convincing the American people that a unicorn just flew into this hearing room
than that these big oil companies need taxpayer subsidies"

back to OT, hopefully.

El Chino is here to say that he hopes that Chuckie (as I am going to call him) will park off of T'Gon, along with Beau d'phant (gravybrain that/s YOU Galaxo), for an evening of compare & contrast, along with Synchronized THUMP coming off all 3 Mutants (I'll figure out a way to make that happen. How fun would that be?
