The onset of cheap link-recycling posts begins in earnest: Fruity Samurai

It'll give me great personal pleasure to see some citrus shits getting juiced. Got no time for them

It's late on a Saturday evening, so it's foolishness on anyone's part to expect any verbosity or wittiness (if ever). What I do instead have to offer is the joy of Fruity Samurai.

It's a series of animated shorts, featuring, in a highly no-shit-Sherlock way, a bunch of samurai, all of them fruit * adopts Jilly Goolden voice * I'm getting tones of Samurai Jack, along with some Parappa The Rapper notes.

A wink in the direction of Twitch for bringing this charming wee beastie to my attention.

"It's The Matrix, as produced by the creative team at Babestation."

Airtight analysis, that.

Sucker Punch is out now in UK cinemas
