"It's a show...about Alchemy..." challenge!  
I was looking at the Otakon website one day and found a video from a local new station that had given a report on Otakon. While watching, there was a girl who had to explain what exactly Beyblade is about. Her explanation was something like this: "It's like this show where people battle with tops...and monsters come out of them..."

I have a quick challenge for you all. Come up with the stupidest way to explain Fullmetal Alchemist. You only have to comment it. =^^=

I always feel weird about posting...if the mods don't like this, I'll delete it

Um, a robot and some kid go chasing after a stone or something.

This kid and a suit of armor, that's actually his brother, fight people who aren't really people and.. damn it lmao, lost my train of thought. Not stupid enough anyway.

Once upon a time, two boys performed forbidden magic with cool flashy colors to raise the dead. One of them was kidnapped by some weird hand-monsters, so the other boy replaced his brother with a robot. He traded his limbs for metal limbs during that time. Then, the half-robot boy and his robot brother set out on a journey to find a magic stone so that they can become human. XD

It's a story where the corrupt nationalistic government goes and decides to wipe out the people that live in the desert in the East. The head of state isn't human, he has an underling that likes to grin menacingly.

It's purely allegorical of course. XD

mwhahahahaha allegory away!

It's this show where two brothers get body parts stolen by these rubbery evil hands, become half-metal and full-metal and fight all these evil dudes who aren't really human and have cool tattoos!

So, like, there's this kid and this robot running around everywhere... or riding the train. The kid claps his hands alot and gets mad at being called short, and he eats alot too. The robot just follows him around and picks up kittens; he doesn't eat anything. Oh, and there's some blond girl who cries alot.

Later, there's this skanky whore and a fat guy who eats everything. And some soldiers who are clueless, except the leader, who looks like every other main character in japanimation[sic] and he burns stuff with fire. This other blond chick hangs out with him and carries a gun around.

A pint-sized kid with a fake arm and a large moving trash can go on a journey to find some magical stone. In the end, things drastically change.

Well, yeah, but the show's actually about this really really hot military dude and his equally good-looking lieutenant who run around the country and try to keep it from getting destroyed by the people who get pissed off at said clappy-and-robot kids. [/bias]

He's a blond, pre-pubescent amputee. His brother is R2-D2. Together they fight crime. (And one of the villians wears a manbra.)

R2D2..... Dude. Perfect.

"This thing has lots of blood and gore and scary things and each character runs around with tons of angst on their shoulder. The only guy who is not angsting will [SPOILER]die[SPOILER], so the others can angst around on it. I wouldn't give it to you children."


"Well the blond kid hates milk... most likely because the original story was made up by a cow with glasses."

Two boys go places looking for a rock. Lots of flashy lights. People die.

Angst and shinny stones of hope...that end up bringing more angst. And death.
