Ogle-Who? and Popular Culture 4

Oglethorpe is not only the name of Georgia’s founder and my current workplace, it is also the name of a character from the trashy cartoon series Aqua Teen Hunger Force. The series aired from 2000 to 2010 on Adult Swim, the adult version of Cartoon Network.

Oglethorpe is accompanied by his green-shredded plutonium bro’ Emory whose name is an ironic intertextual reference to another prestigious Atlanta university.
