The Mindfuck about ed,edd,eddy

So, Funnyjunk, the other day I was browsing around when I
saw a post about how "Ed, Edd, n Eddy" was about kids in
heaven, and I thought to myself, "how could anyone see the
Eds' plight as heaven?" The other kids are constantly {oiling
their plans and ridiculing them, they are constantly
sustaining every manner of injury, and their greatest desire is
constantly just beyond their reach, taunting them with its
sugary goodness.
Sounds more like hell to me.
So then I started to look into it more, pairing characters from
the show with common themes of hell. The 7 deadly sins were
the obvious place to start. Some of them were quite obvious:
Sarah: Wrath
Nazz: Lust
Kevin: Pride
Jimmy: Envy
He' s always clinging to Sarah, and
generally latching onto others. And I' m sure we
all remember the episode where he does that
whole ridiculously complicated plan to get
revenge on the Eds.
Rolf: Gluttony
Not readily obvious, but when
you think about it, he is the character
most often eating and associated with
food, what with his constant supply of
sausages and crazy foreign food.
Johnny and Plank: sloth
one of them' s an inanimate object,
and the other tends to be found sitting or
lying about somewhere. Rarely take active
roles in the plot, generally Just react to what
gets thrown at them.
But OP," you' re saying, "What about our heroes? And
you' re short a sin!"
Hold your horses you whiny bitches, I' m getting to it.
The last sin should be obvious to anyone even vaguely
familiar with the show:
Eddy: Greed
The other two were a little trickier, but I think I found their
roles quite nicely:
Doublets: Virgil
The voice of reason and guidance in the
chaos of this world. But more importantly, he serves
as the counselor and guardian to our last player:
Ed: Dante
Yes, you guessed it, our loveable Ed is the Dante of
this story. Lost in a world he does not understand, unsure of
his purpose or way. Lumpy here is the speck of innocence,
assailed from all sides by the vices that surround him. It is
often only Doublets who keeps him from peril, defends him,
and shows him the way (or tries to, anyway).
So there you have it: Ed, Edd, n Eddy is really an allegory for
hell.
I also thought of how the Kanker Sisters could be the fates,
what with the eye thing they have going. or they could be lust,
which could make Nan Dante' s Beatrice, but whatever, that' s
getting too complicated.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed!!

Well considering that's inexplicably the Imperial Guard Armour from Oblivion, my guess is that it says "Stop right there Criminal Scum" since that saying is more or less a meme.

Are you actually a fan, or is it just coincidence that that pic is related?

At least you're honest about it, and hole firm to your preferences. But I hate that EVERYONE'S hating on the bronies all of a sudden! And it's like half the people couldn't care either way, and they only thumb down because they see it's what everyone else is doing! This kind of sheep-mentality is just... disgusting. :/

All of you haters (Not referring to Mrah) out there, you could at LEAST admit that they make for good reaction images. Stop hating because you think it'll make you cool!

What if its just a nomal show with normal things?? Like normal life? theres always that bitchy girl, the hot girl, the kid who thinks hes the best, the gay or maybe bicurious kid, a foreign kid, and that lazy kid, ed edd and edy are just other roles trying to fit in with the crowd with each having a problem, like eddy is greedy thats understandable, edd has ocd, and ed is dumb.. soo yea?

Hmmm, this post reminds me of every other post claiming the same thing about a different show, like My Little Pony, or Rugrats, or any other show that has many characters in it.
