The Jani-Tormentor and his Bucket of Destruction

The Jani-Tormentor and his Bucket of Destruction

Shorting out complex machines during the night shift!

"Science" is no match for good old-fashioned H20.

The Jani-Tormentor and his Bucket of Destruction held the coveted title of Current Champ from Monday, May 05, 2008 to Tuesday, May 06, 2008, heartily vanquishing Dr Neil and his Smallenating Ray to earn it. Unfortunately, brutal defeat came soon after, at the merciless hands of Holy Holer.

This hero's magnaminous likeness was captured at the moment of glorious triumph by Guest Illustrator Anni Betts.


Quotes overheard while standing in the crowd that gathered to watch the carnage…

  1. It's not dihydrogen oxide?

    Walter Mitty | [ a ]
  2. From the always-reliable Wikipedia:

    Dihydrogen monoxide or DHMO is an overly pedantic systematic covalent name of water... In reality, a more realistic systematic name would be hydrogen oxide, since the "di-" and "mon-" prefixes are superfluous.

  3. I should add that I modified Anni's note to include the hydrogen oxide, because I thought it was funny in comparison with the quoted "science".

    Then, after thinking about it, I don't think it's funny. So I've removed it.

  4. Love the strategically "eruptive" bucket.

  5. I love the fact that his bucket gets mentioned in his title, like it's his sidekick.

  6. You know, professors can do the same thing, and in half the time.

  7. Is he a pinhead?

    He kind of looks like a pinhead.

  8. Very cool Anni! Does he hang his utility belt in the utility closet?

    sutter | [ a ]
  9. Why, I believe he DOES hang his utility belt in the utility closet. He's all about utility! And NOT about being suggestive...I promise I wasn't trying to place his bucket in a "special" spot....

  10. This hero reminds me of the distinctive-smelling chemical stuff the elementary school janitors used to use to clean up vomit.

    Nice work, Anni!

  11. Heh, I think his cape might be riding a little high. I thought he had long luscious locks for some reason.
    Like a cross-dressing janitor with a bucket of water.
