The Annotated DFC : Soylent Green


"Wherever two Keanes gather to break bread, Soylent Green will be there."

Soylent Green is a reference to the movie Soylent Green. Set in a futuristic society, where the populace eats generic nutritious wafers, called "Soylent {Red|Yellow|Green}". In the end, the hero, played by Charlton Heston, finds out what they are actually made of and runs through the street yelling "Soylent Green is made of people! Soylent Green is people!"

Soylent Green tends to be on the Difficult Zone because there's only really one SG joke and it's been done in DFC #1.


This Soylent Green tastes like people! [Nethicus]

It was so cool! There were so many "Soylent Green" and "Mad Cow" jokes in there, the "stupid" bin just collapsed under its own weight! [Pete B.]

Another great meal, Mom. You're just a whiz with Soylent Green! Toozday


Is this where your stomach hurts? I can't find anything wrong...it must have been all those damned 'Soylent Green and Mad Cow Disease' captions you had to stomach last week. [The Unmasked Revenger]

It always happens...whenever we eat dinner here in the DFC zone, I start mumbling about Soylent Green. I don't even know what the hell Soylent Green is! [Diggit]

Mmmm, roast Barfy, Soylent Green, mad cow dis...oops, I thought this was another "eating" picture. Never mind. [Greg J]

Hey, have you guys ever actually read the ingredients to this Soylent Green shit? [Greg J]

I wish you guys knew how extremely difficult it is to keep eating all this soylent green and family members/pets. For some reason, being poisoned isn't so difficult this time, though. [Greg J]

Ah yes, another "eating one". Well, we finally got to eat Barfy, even if it was indirect, an' I'm pretty damn sure those little cubes were Soylent Green. An' I feel like I've been poisoned. Ah yes, "Dining Out in the Difficult Zone"! [Vice Pope Doug]

Remember, if a grownup tries to make you get into his or her car, talk about having sex with Barfy and eating Soylent Green. You'll be instantly transported to the red asterisk. [His Imperial Majesty]

Remember, we want to stay out of the red asterisk, so ixnay on the oylentsay eengray. [His Imperial Majesty]

Awww, Mommy! What fun is watching you cook if "Soylent Green" jokes are in the Impossible Zone? [The Outsider]

"...and soylent mauve is made of people and crayons!" [Heath]


It's Friday kids! Difficult Zone Night! Would you rather have Barfy or Soylent Green? [Vice Pope Doug]

We figure if we can spell out "Soylent Green" the DFC will have to remove this one, and then maybe we can have one meal in peace. [worth a shot]

Oh God, Mommy... I had this awful dream that wirehead college geeks with no lives were making comments on our day-to-day activities. The comments usually involved substance abuse, untold sexual perversions, Soylent Green, miscellaneous scatological gags... [Doc Evil]

"Soylent green... hypno-hair... milk cartons?" I didn't know there was a TV show about the Difficult Zone! [Coalcracker]

Botany Class? Can't get enough of Soylent Green, huh? [Kevy]


Let's see ... we put in soylent green, Barfy's intestines, Jeffy's hypno-hair, and a heaping frenzy of dik play. What else goes into a difficult zone pie, Mom? [Riff]

"Big Mack Cletus. Head pimp in the Bumsteads' neighborhood. Also smuggles Soylent Green in from the Difficult Zone." [Dave Matthews]

"Pulling one's finger and Soylent Green dishes / 'Food on you, mate!' jokes and dual-nostril wishes / Melonhead SURGE! freaks with hair drawn like strings, these are a few of my difficult things...." [Caption Salvage Crew]
