Hello everyone.. Ahh.. do you smell that??? Its Thursday! and we all know what that means. Time to see who catches the wild chickens first. In fact, the producers seem to be saying to us that there are really five tribes, the fifth being the Chicken Tribe, lets call this tribe "Loolee-Luka-Loo" Cause seriously. Where the heck do the producers come up with these names anyways. If you should know the answer and can come up with a better name for Team Wild Chicken, then please send an email or instant message to Marcus, cause I won't care.
I guess since this season of Survivor should be named "Survivor: Apartheid Islands" I should pick a team. I'll tell you this. I'll favor the team that makes a gourmet wild chicken meal first. If it should be Chicken Fried Rice, or Arroz con Pollo, or Fried Chicken or Chicken Parm. Either way, first team to do that gets my vote.
Upon an initial Google search of the tribe names, we come to the conclusion that the tribes are named after various locations within the Cook Islands.
However, if you just google Puka. This is what you get.
1) A Hawaiian Style Hot Dog
2) A Wikipedia entry that says "Puka" is military slang for an office cubicle with Hawaiian etymology meaning "hole".
Considering the majority of the Asian tribe seem to be cubicle jockeys. I think the producers are trying to tell us something.
When the episode starts, I can't help but think about Tom Hanks' in Castaway. In fact, the whole beginning of the episode is like the African American version of the movie. With extra moon shots for the DVD.
In their rendition of Castaway, the AITU or "The Spicy Tribe" as Arnold might reference them, have decided to continue with re-enacted scenes from Castaway by demonstrating their rendition of the "Spear through fish" move. Rachel Ray should be shook cause we're clearing talking about a 2 minute meal here. However the winner of the "Who Catches the Chicken First" award goes to the Puka tribe of Team Asian and their Asian chicken in the box Jedi mind trick. Am I the only person who has only seen this trick on cartoons and never in real life? Obviously Asians use their cubes well, thus being the Puka tribe.
I have but one question for Hollywood. What is with casting directors and their inherent need to cast side show bob type characters? I mean honestly, besides the fact that we now have Ozzy from we've got Side Show Bob, Justin Guarini, MJ from the Real World. Someone should gather up all the different versions of Side Show Bob's and watch them battle it out.
Ultimately it is Billy from the Aitu tribe that is booted off this episode of survivor. Which teaches us all a lesson. No matter what color you are. No one likes a lazy ass.
