  • Perhaps inspired by the name of a blood-red organic offspring of the same name.
  • From TMBG Unlimited:
There are some forces that cannot be tamed. And some things which can only be possessed at the ultimate price. ..."Hey, come back...I just need to talk to you"...In a world where the only game is getting and having, the one man who will stop at nothing to have what every man wants..."Here, kitty kitty kitty!"...is the one who finds himself...caught in his own deadly trap. "Hey... you scratched me." "Rairrr!" "AIIEEE!" Michael Douglas... "I don't know who you are... or WHAT you are... but..." "Meow?" "No! No! Jesus!" "KA-BLOOOM!!" ...In a They Might Be Giants picture...Tigerella.
