Title: The Island Hates Picnics
Post by: hyperform on March 12, 2009, 11:11:29 PM
I actually got this idea from the LostChatter podcast, but think about it

Sayid and Shannon had a picnic and Boone died, and Shannon followed shortly after
Hurley and Libby tried to have a picnic and Libby got shot
Goodwin and Juliette had a picnic and Ben sent Goodwin off to die shortly after
and now Paul and Amy had a picnic and Paul got shot

First, best title ever.

Second, you are absolutely right, picnics are to Lost as the red shirt is to Star Trek.

The island just hates happy couples in love with the exception of Rose and Bernard I guess until everyone finds their skeletal remains on a picnic blanket thus explaining where they've been for 3 years.

LOL!
No picnics allowed once you leave paradise.

Finally the secret has been revealed.   Great Job!!!  Now we can assume that an army of ants is behind all the strange happenings.  After all they are the best at ruining picnics.   We will probably see them swarming the statue in a future episode.   Perhaps when they all work together they form the smoke monster.  Keep the good ideas coming.

Maybe the island isn't supposed to be enjoyed. All work and no play, you know??

Also ROFL at Rose & Bernard's skeletons on top of a picnic basket...

Wow, you can really tell it's been over a week since we've had an episode, can't you?  LOL!

LOL! Well, neither of you used the rolly-eye face, so it's hard to tell.  ::)

I didn't even think of the picnic-thing until you brought it up! I always thought getting killed off had to do with DUI's and sex, but, picnics work too...

Wasn't Charlie having a picnic with Desmond when he said, "You're gonna dead, Charlie"? ;)

Ana Lucie also died because of Libby's picnic.  She was an innocent bystander.

Makes you wonder if Karl and Alex had picnics and  probably Nikki and Paulo  probably had one with spiders and other creepy crawly things as well.

Post by: CaseyMac on March 13, 2009, 11:19:57 PM
The funny thing about this too is the next time we see a picnic on Lost we are all going to think the same thing "Ooooohhhhh they are so dead." LOL

The more I think about it, Thomas may be right with the whole ant theory.

Inspired brilliance indeed, Hyper. Indeed.

Ok...maybe I should have used the  ::) on my first post... but it is funny how with ants or bees you have a hive mentality with one leader and a heirarchy right on down from the queen to the worker (or Workman) ants or bees.   The Dharma Initiative tried to build this kind of society and even labels everybody for clarity.  The others have the same thing going on.   All working for the good of the community rather than for the individual.    From now on, there should be a warning label on all picnic baskets on the Island.
