Kyle Machlachlan, mad Sea Monkey warlord?

I dig Kyle Maclachlan. He first came to my attention as a sweetly sincere, chicken walking Bud man in the delightfully weird David Lynch film Blue Velvet. He continued to work with Lynch and was equally wonderful as the overly enthusiastic detective on Twin Peaks. Show Girls was his best performance and he single handedly pushed that movie over the line into "fascinatingly strange" territory allowing it to escape the "just plain bad" or "utter train wreck" territories.

I was pleased to see his name show up in a blog search for sea monkey references. Maclachlan, now classing up the small screen with appearances on Desperate Housewives is quoted as saying of his love for Sea Monkeys:
“It’s a childhood hobby I’ve never grown out of. Soon I’ll have a sea monkey army to rival any in history. And then I’ll take over the world”

Of course I don't consider one blog a reliable source, and now I shall have to seek an interview with Mr. Maclachlan himself. Anyone know Kyle Maclachlan's cell phone number?

Funniest Thing I've Read All Year

Click Here to read the article at Animal Aid's website encouraging people to write to retailers of Sea Monkeys and ask that they not carry the product.
It's ridiculousness like this that makes the animal rights movement look silly, and that is a shame as it is a movement near and dear to my heart.

I see them huggin' monkeys with their sad faces in Animal Aid's logo and all I can think is, "I know what'd cheer them li'l monkeys up, a nice set of Sea Monkeys!"

Chinese Toy Scare not affecting Sea Monkeys

Are you safe buying Sea Monkeys? After all they do come in little plastic tanks with lots of plastic parts. Well, you don't have to worry. Sea Monkey accessories do NOT come from any of the plants that are currently involved in toy recalls. George Atamian assures us at www.sea-monkey.com that we're in the clear:

"All of our Sea-Monkey pouches are totally formulated and packaged in America by the inventors and creators of this wonderful & loved brand. Every batch of thse special powders are tested by our PhD expert with 45 years experience studying and analyzing all aspects of the Sea-Monkeys.

We make more than 100,000 tanks and sets in the USA and more in a factory in China with which I have personally dealt with, visited and inspected several times in the 12 years I have been associated with Sea-Monkeys.

We not only keep the lead out, but we constantly test for all heavy metals and other potentially hazardous contaminants.

My goal, and that of our world-wide dedicated Sea-Monkey team, is to provide you with a wonderful & joyous experience as you bring your Sea-Monkey pets to life and take good care of them over the years.
I wish you all health and happiness and remember…ALWAYS BE KIND TO YOUR SALTY SEA-MONKEY PALS!
