So I made a They Might Be Giants based branch of STAB, So what?

The Transcontinental Mobile BriGade is the CIA equivalent for STAB. Like how the SMSC are the equivalent of the FBI.

Personnel System: US military ranking system (i.e. General, Chief Warrant Officer, etc.)
List of personnel (I've come up with so far)
  • General Ana Ng
  • Colonel Chess Piece Face
  • (Chief Warrant Officer, level 3) Mrs. Wheelyke
  • Captain (Mr.) Tambourine Man


Codename System
: Nothing special or clever like B.U.E. and "bowie", just T.E. (Threat Entity)
  • T.E. FLOOD (EAT)
  • T.E. CRAZY GUY/BASTARD (The Smiling Man)
  • T.E. VELVET APE (Mother of Snakes? The Rake?)
  • T.E. TRIANGLE MAN (The Archangel)
  • T.E. DOCTOR WORM (The Plague Doctor?)
  • T.E. TORNADO FROM THE WEST (The Typhoon)
  • T.E. MUSIC JAIL/Unpronounceable (The Choir)
  • T.E. EVIL TWIN (Nobody)
  • T.E. ISTANBUL (NOT CONSTANTINOPLE) (The Empty City)
  • T.E. THE MESOPOTAMIANS (The Answer)
  • T.E. THINKING MACHINE (Manufactured Newborn)
  • T.E. DISPLACED BEES (Intrusion)
  • T.E. ERASE (The Quiet)

Please tell me if there's a problem.

I am the world first Moral Absurdist. I noticed that there was not a philosophical term as such, so I coined it. Moral Absurdism: The belief that the concepts of "good" and evil" do not exist, and that morality is a sham, yet deciding to embrace the absurdity of that and hold a moral system anyways. The logical conclusion of nihilism. See also: Absurdism, Existentialism.

I would argue that the song is not really a bastardization of christianity so much as it is a warning against the kind of people who abuse religion for their own ends... False Prophets if you will.

Fair enough although also to be Fair you got a monster called The Archangel on there already... I don't think you can get more bastardizing of religion than that... I mean that is literally it's entire point it's a bastardization of religion, specifically the concept of The Afterlife and a Just and loving god.

Dial a song is a more easy one, but phone calls from the dead is probably a better connection...

So, you decided against T.E. Am I Awake for the Grotesque?
