Quote of the Day

“We thought of it, sort of, the week before. And then the day came and we’re just, like, so nervous. We’re like, ‘No no no there’s no way,’ you know? And it was, like, ‘We’re not really gonna wear these dresses.’ We had tuxes as a backup because we thought we were gonna chicken out. And we did. And we were like, ‘Let’s not do that. Let’s not do that.’ But then we were like, ‘Let’s take a little bit of the acid and see what happens.’ So we did that and of course like an hour later we were like, ‘We gotta wear the dresses!’”

-- Trey Parker, admitting that he and South Park co-creator Matt Stone were on acid when they showed up at the 2000 Academy Awards in drag

Yup. Acid. It makes every idea a good idea.

Well, look at it this way: the Academy was probably on acid that year when they gave the Best Actress Oscar to Julia Roberts for Erin Brockovich.

How the hell can these guys go to the Academy Awards on acid???

I got trapped in a bathroom for 45 minutes on acid. There was wallpaper on all the walls and doors. It was a jungle print. I couldn't find the door!

Yeah. I was there that year. Acid would have made sitting through that fucking Phil Collins song more bearable.

Those guys did look fetching in their frocks.

I've seen people drop acid in class during 2nd period in high school and make it through the rest of the day. Some people are really resilient on the stuff.

Well, once I ate some mescaline and got on an airplane... still have flashbacks, 20 years later.

But tripping at the Oscars? I can't even imagine.
