I learned something interesting today. A sick little bird told me that, actually, Hydrox came wayyyy before Oreos. It was Oreos, however, that took the cookie/cream concept, and (some would say) perfected it, which lead to their success. Would you believe that Hyrdox have been around since 1908? It’s true! Crazy, right?
Writing dialogue for Rabaldus is always fun, for a variety of reasons. In some cases though, I simply have TOO many good lines to choose from, and have to settle on one. Today was one of those days. For those that are interested, I’m sharing a few of the alternate lines that ultimately lost out to the Hyrdox one:
#1 – Rabaldus: “I’m going to go easy on you, old man, but it’s only because I want to make a comeback later in the game and send your blood pressure skyrocketing so high you stroke.”
#2 – Rabaldus: “This is like the story of David and Goldilocks, isn’t it? The one where David has to defeat an enemy that’s much bigger than himself?”
#3 – Rabaldus: “If you think I’m going to take it easy on you because you’re old as fuck and senile, then you’re wrong, old man.”
#4 – Rabaldus: “Do we need to take a bathroom break before the game so you can poop and do old person stuff first?”
