today at work someone tipped me a potato
in some countries that is a marriage proposal
Even the potato looks confused
College is a fucked up place
Finals fried this kid’s brain so bad that he’s trying to communicate with another plant to get him the fuck out of here before next year’s finals.
that tree looks so happy that it is receiving a hug from this child
I AM GROOT
THIS WAS THE BEST EPISODE EVER I GET SO ANGRY WHEN PEOPLE DONT REMEMBER IT
HOW DO YOU FORGET SOKKA’S CACTUS TRIP
THERE WAS EVEN A FRIENDLY MUSHROOM
WHY DID YOU MISS THE QUENCHIEST GIF OF THEM ALL?
I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
