I was watching the Phillies game today with Baby Phan One and saw something that I cannot unsee. The Phillie Phanatic’s phriends, the Galapagos Gang murdered a man.
I laughed it off so as to not upset my daughter, but my God. The Galapagos Gang killed a man by eating him alive in front of a stadium 2/5 full of people.
The Galapagos Gang debuted on the Phanatic’s birthday this year. They can also be seen in the book Phillie Phanatic’s Galapagos Islands Adventure by Tom Burgoyne (buy it). In the book, the gang is kind and helpful to the Phanatic. It seems that in the time that has passed since the Phanatic’s trip to the Galapagos, the Galapagos Gang has sworn it’s allegiance to the Phanatic…in blood. They are so loyal that they will kill anyone that crosses the Phanatic.
If you listen to the Galapagos Gang Theme Song, you will find that Iggy the Iguana has not only murdered before, but is quite frankly, a serial killer…

Now you may be thinking that I really have a problem with this. Well, of course I don’t. The enemy of the Phanatic is an enemy of mine. The question is who’s next??
