I was sitting on the couch the other night, wondering what to draw for a cartoon this week, and I noticed the weird flowers growing in the window sill. My wife has been purchasing discount orchids at the supermarket and placing them there. The flowers come in all different shapes and colors, and most of them appear to be either laughing or screaming. I’m assuming they are talking to one another and making jokes that only flowers find funny. They are obviously dorks, but also orchids. They are dorchids.
Apparently there’s one where Loomis has a full head of hair, too.
Alternate Masks for Alternate Realities
Are there other versions of ourselves living in parallel worlds exactly like our own but with one significant thing different? For instance, a world just like this one but where a version of you exists with face tats or a mutant tail? In the Many Worlds theory, this type of thing isn’t only possible, it’s quite likely.
Likewise, it’s conceivable that after breaking into Haddonfield Hardware on Halloween night, 1978, that Michael Myers may have chosen a Spock mask instead of a Kirk one to carry out his murder spree. Because of that one decision, the entire course of spacetime forked in a different direction in the universe next door. Needless to say, a different version of the movie Halloween has been playing there for the last forty years as well.
The terror of being stalked by Spock is something most of don’t want to contemplate, especially those of us who have seen Mirror, Mirror, the Star Trek episode in which an evil version of Spock sends his enemies to the Agonizer. Consider yourself fortunate that you live in a world where Michael chose the Kirk mask.
