It’s episode six of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers season 1, and Rita sends down what might be the most bizarre looking creature yet. Try to imagine a giant pig head about the size of a living room recliner. Now stick two little legs on the bottom and you’ll have Finster’s latest creation. In his defense he does describe it as, “Not my best work.”
Can you guess what evil power the pig has? It eats. It eats all food in sight and Zordon predicts it will eat the entire food supply on earth in two days. That’s true terrorism. 😳
Here are three life lessons from “Food Fight”:
1 – Help out your local community
The Rangers are spending their day working at a fundraising event to raise money for the daycare and children’s center.
Having a sense of community and helping our neighbors out is a dying concept these days. Having pride in where we live isn’t as fundamental as it once was. As a result, we are losing the bonds that once held communities together.
Make your town better, make it more functional and accommodating by lending a hand from time to time. In the long run, it will enhance the lives of everyone in the area. It will create a dynamic group of people who strive to help one another.
2 – Food is an effective way to make money.
One thing that everyone loves is food. Of course we all have our personal preferences and pickiness, but a good food product is likely to draw in more people than other types of fundraising items.
I’m no marketer or business entrepreneur, but I know that I buy way more food than anything else. So if you need some quick funds, sell some candy bars.
3 – Find a weakness in a seemingly unstoppable foe.
There’s a giant pig head running around eating everyone’s food. He even eats the Rangers’ power weapons. What’s their next move?
The Rangers take a look at the scene of destruction left by the pig and notice an invaluable piece of evidence. Because they take the time to assess the pig’s trail, they end up using the information to stop the madness. (They noticed the pig avoided spicy food, so they fed him secretly spicy food. Genius.)
If there’s anyone or anything out there that you can’t seem to beat – find a weakness. Observe and see where things don’t add up. Watch for inconsistencies. Take notes and make a plan to use that weakness to win.
Seriously, go Google this pig monster. Aside from the comical creature, “Food Fight” also gives us the advice to help out in our community, use food to raise money, and find weaknesses in opponents.
On a medical note, if you’re nauseous, go lay down. Don’t stalk teenagers and then get angry at all the food and send a pig to eat it all. Geez, Rita.
Thanks for reading. Enjoy your food today and be grateful a giant pig head hasn’t stolen it.
