Ok, seriously.

What the fuck.

Predator-Alien hybrid from AvP2

I can just see these guys sitting around a table going:

"Okay, man, last time we had the aliens fight the Predators, how are we gonna RAMP THIS UP? WE GOTTA TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL."

"Oh, yeah, totally."

"So what are we gonna do?"

"We could give the aliens guns."

"No, that's stupid. Let's make a chick Predator. With big boobs."

"Hey, cool. But that's not TOTALLY RAMPED UP. What else?"



"Alien chicks! With big boobs!"

"No, no. Even I think that's stupid and I'm totally stoned right now. What about a .. uh. Alien. Predator. Hyberthingy. Like they had that dog alien thing in the third one."

"Woah. It could have like... three secondary mouth thingies."


(Ok, apparently the predalien -- ugh -- was in the last movie and also in the games. I don't remember it from AvP, and I didn't play the second one. I don't care. It's fucking stupid.)
