    So I had to Google how the "drug" part related to the theme. Turns out it's from a Metallica song, that I've never even heard of, despite being one of their "most famous and popular songs", according to Wikipedia. :shrug:

    OK, so here we go. First, the literal interpretation:

    [​IMG]
    - Lamb Chop

    Then, the figurative interpretation:

    [​IMG]
    - Homeland

    But you said surprise you. So how about the 1994 film called...

    [​IMG]
    - The Puppet Masters

    And going farther afield, how about a Pierson's Puppeteer, because why not?

    [​IMG]
    - Larry Niven's Known Space works

    And finally, coming back full circle, we have a puppet on human drugs:

    [​IMG]
    - Flat Eric (in what I'm guessing is an unauthorized appearance...)

    and, a human on puppet drugs, AKA sugar.

    [​IMG]
    - The Happytime Murders

    Now I just have to hope that my Google searches for this contest didn't land me on some kind of watch list somewhere.

    Ok here's a couple of entries, one more oblique than the other

    First from the Blakes 7 episode Weapon, Carnell, a psychostrategist, or more colloquially a Puppeteer.

    Secondly, and especially pertinent since we recently lost Shane Rimmer :confused: Scott Tracy
