Some sort of fucked up giant Borrowers?</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Rather, what I think Cheech and Shrew represent is the inherent struggle that takes place between the id and ego. They exemplify the impulse that drives us to commit the base, venereal acts, versus the cold ponderings of that which traps us to our selves... refusing to transcend the lot of carnal bindings.<P>Particularly interesting is the anthropomorphic overtones. This embraces the soul of the animal within us all... a kind of "furry" self, which flies in the face of our pursuit of evolution. A kind of fuzzy logic, if you will. <P>Regression. They are about regression, into the mind, the soul, and the libido. One: we are sexual beings. Two: we are rational beings.
