armless glory

I will always be freaked out by the Buggs’ habit of removing body parts for the sake of re-enactments or cosplay. I mean, seriously.

the bugg version

I guess there’s no Buggvard Munch in the bugg world? Transcript: Mr and Mrs Bugg stand on either side of the pre-stolen painting. It depicts two buggs in the solitary car of a train on a wooden rollercoaster in the midst of its run. It has already been through the big drop and a loop. The buggs in the car have their arms up and their mouths are wide in silent screams, no doubt at the scary bits yet to come. The text reads: “Febuggary 12, 1994: The most famous bugg painting, “The Scream” is stolen.”  

night at the museum

That’s a pretty killer museum! Transcript: Mr and Mrs Bugg are holding hands and waving excitedly from the floor of a museum with some awesome exhibits: the skeleton of a huge, antennae’d dinobugg, a large, framed painting of Buggerican Gothic, and a statue on a pedestal depicting the upper half of a lady-bugg. The text reads: “Febuggary 5, 1852: The Heribugg Museum in Saint Petersbugg opens to the public.”  

that smile

What we’ve got here is proof that Mrs Bugg is a method actor. She sees that the Mona Buggisa has kind of a thousand-yard stare going, so she digs through her mental repertoire of characters and emotions, and realizes that the Jaffa have the thousand-yard stare going on, and uses that for her inspiration. It’s just a little sad that she made Mr Bugg paint the symbol of her god on her forehead, too. Transcript: Mr Bugg stands with his back to us, contemplating a large painting on an easel, arms in the accepted “looking at art” pose, with one arm across his chest, upon which hand rests the elbow of the other arm. That hand is either pressed to his chin or lips, we can’t tell. The painting is of a woman, Mrs Bugg, wearing a dress, a bow in her hair. Her arms are folded, and her face projects a thousand-yard stare. We will ignore the symbol upon her forehead. The text reads: “janubug 8, 1963: Leonardo de Bugg’s Mona Buggisa is first displayed in the United Buggs. Totally not doing the Jaffa face.”
