      Tuesday X: How are we ever gonna act like a normal family?! I mean, look at this place! (picks up a remote) Normal families don't have a remote control with a launch button! (presses the launch button and a rocket comes flying out from under the kitchen table) Normal families don't have exploding lawn gnomes! (scene cuts to a butterfly landing on one of the lawn gnomes, then exploding) Normal families don't have portraits of themselves fighting giant robot squids!

  • NOTES (11)

    • Snafu was probably derived from Theodor Geisel's (Dr. Seuss) and Phil Eastman's character "Private Snafu" from a navy training video they did through Warner Brothers. All censored up, SNAFU originally stands for "Situation Normal- All 'Fouled' Up." Just guess what it was uncensored.

      The private was a blunder and effectively showed what NOT to do in different situations. Glowface and the other SNAFU agents seem to only be a liability to their own side. It keeps with the Private Snafu's idiocies, and therefore, leads to believe that this criminal force is, in fact, derived from Dr. Seuss' creation.
