Ideas that add up #12
You’re telling me my plan! I know what my plan is, I thought up the plan!! It’s MY PLAN!!!
Emperor Zurg in feature-length cartoon Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins
This is a Silly Saturday sort of selection, just happens to have been bouncing around in my head today.
Zurg is evil incarnate, a Darth-Vaderish figure with a booming electronic voice who makes pompous pronouncements about his universe-subjugating projects while bemoaning the hopeless ineptitude of his underlings. He is heartless, vain, and ridiculous through and through. On this occasion a quivering minion is briefing him from a clipboard on plans for deploying a powerful new tool for interplanetary mind-control. Zurg cuts him off impatiently, with mounting rage and perfect petulance.
My inner evil emperor empathizes.
