Guybrush Bashes Scientology (Monkey Island 2)
So I'm playing LeChuck's Revenge, as I do every day, when this popped up. One of the books listed in the Phatt Island library card catalog is a parody of Dianetics. (Scene taken directly from the game - not edited)

This YTMND and the scene itself aren't meant to be super funny, but it's neat to see that the creators of MI were taking a subtle jab at scientology long before it was "in style." If you needed another reason to love MI, here it is.

Lol. Even Monkey Island hates scientology.

Oh no... now you done it. Youve exposed this to a lot of people. and now scientologists are going to sue the creators of monkey island to the point that they dissapear from the face of the earth. :(

This comment has nothing to do with this YTMND, but I thought I'd mention this here by some crazy chance any other YTMNDers live in Southern California, near Ventura County. Tomorrow there will be a Pirate festival @ the Ventura Harbor. http://www.venturaharbor.com/binn/events.taf?relm=detail&event_id=189 I'll be there informing random pirates that they fight like dairy farmers. :) PM me if you're local and interested.

i guess it's good to have an important piece of history (for clambakers) readily available, but there really should be a better way to disseminate this kind of thing without using YTMND. so many sites are better off as just.. something else

Actually, it was "in style" to take a jab at scientology ever since it started. It's not a new thing, you know. Started way back in the 60s. But 5'd for the nostalgic awesomeness!
July 30th, 2006

I thought it was edited and gave it a 4. Holy sh*t that is awesome that it's actually in the game. 5'd

"u suck at synking" Yes I know, but I figure it syncs good enough since this doesn't beg to be viewed multiple times in a row. The sound isn't really meant to sync perfectly with every action on screen, either. Anyhoo, instead of criticism, I would appreciate any advice anyone could give me about getting this to sync up more frequently. Thanks.

Err... you do know Ron Gilbert is the guy who made monkey island right? It's probably more a jab at him.
September 21st, 2006
(0)
^ Yes I do know, and that's a good point. Though this was still likely intended as a scientology gag, Ron Gilbert's name was probably used as part of the parody because he happens to have the name Ron (without the L) It works on both levels!
