Last night/this morning...

... I had what might be the weirdest dream I've ever had in my entire life. It started out with the Thundercats, specifically Tygra and Panthro, arguing over who's turn it was to do the PSA at the end of the show. Basically, Tygra wanted to do the thing, but everybody agreed that Panthro was the better choice to actually film the announcement because he was obviously smarter.

Things went on in this vein for a few minutes, but I never did find out what happened because the dream segued into a camera setup around a Thundercat that I'd never seen before. He had a really awesome mullet and an asshole mustache, and he was holding something large and metallic that was shaped like a tobacco leaf. He looks at the camera like he's about to deliver a line, and then goddamn He-Man rides up and goes, "Hail, Paco!"

The director, meanwhile, is yelling cut, and the Thundercat guy gets this really exasperated look on his face and goes "Pico, man. How many times do I have to tell you, my name is Pico!"

He-Man looks around and goes, "Well, whatever. Is Wilykit ready?"

And Pico goes, "Naw, man. But Tygra and Lion-O are doing a doubleheader with Wilykat if you wanna watch." To which He-Man replies "Oooh." and his eyes light up, and he and BattleCat wander off.

Pico and his director were redoing their setup when, THANK THE LOVING GOD, my alarm went off. I woke up, and aside from the dream, my first thought was that maybe I should lay off the root beer right before bedtime. That, or replace it with a shot of Beam. Or something.
