Is there any way to get a signed print of this one? I know you've done it before (I bought one) and had this one been available I would have ordered it.
Address please? I feel a beating is in order. A very serious beating.
Urge... to... kill... rising...
and this is why i hate humanity.
I think the "'X is a Y rip-off' when, in fact, X is much older than Y" is my favorite kind of dumbass meme.
Oh Jeebus... My brain...!
Well, he is a geek flying around time in a phone booth. That, in and of itself, is kind of worthy of derision, yes?
Since time-travel is involved here, he could very well be right.
My favorite one of these was when I overheard someone at a party exclaim angrily that Led Zep ripped off a Beastie Boys guitar riff...
Has anyone considered that time travel is involved?
You know, time travel could have had something to do with it.
I have only one thing to say about the person who made that comment:FACEPALM.JPG
Sweet Jegus this guy doesn't understand the concept of linear time progression. As mentioned before, time travel was probably involved in his stupidity.
Damn. I hope he was banned from your store.
If he banned all the stupid people from his store, Mr Tim would not only go out of business, but he'd have to shut down this site for lack of material.
The stupid. It burns.
The fail is strong with this one.
*another witty quip about time travel being involved*
He probably also doesn't understand the fact that bow ties are cool.
Imagine his perceptual world. Apparently, what he has been exposed to first was invented/imagined first. CD before vinyl, cell phones before corded, cars before horse drawn carriages. I can just imagine, "Why would anybody have used an abacus?! Don't they know about calculators?"
You, are all awesome. Thanks for writing such fun comments.Great comic, great comments./Skytteflickan88
Great, now I no longer want a Fantastic Four shirt..
I heard this as a joke when the American "Doctor Who" movie was new. I suppose it was inevitable someone would say it for real.
*Rubs forehead* And Short Circuit is a rip-off of WALL-E
The nerdrage here is cracking me up. It's like a joke within a joke.
You know who else ripped off Bill & Ted? H.G. Wells. The hack...Why stop there? Dance with Wolves and Pocahontas ripped off Avatar. Wolfenstein 3D ripped off Halo. The wheel ripped off the Sewag. The posibilities are endless!Yeah, I know this is just another case of loud minority, but really, if you're gonna hate something, at least spend half a second on Google to know what the hell you're ranting about.
Oh, the joke within the joke isn't the nerdrage here. It's the pocket reality in which 1989 occurred before 1963 that this genius has built up his rectum, and the quantum mechanics required to reside there 24/7. Now *that's* funny.
it's a police box...
I bet the Doctor isn't even a real doctor.
It also reminds me of the time of the announcements of Marvel vs Capcom 3's roster, in which several times I (forcefully) had to correct people who claimed Mike Haggar was a Zangief ripoff...
Slightly off-topic, but is it against the rules for Clark Kent to change into Superman inside a TARDIS?
Please don't ban this guy from your store; I want him to be a recurring character!Also, just because it's a box with a phone in it doesn't mean it's a phone booth. Has there been any other fiction detailing the adventures of a guy who travels through time and space in a policeman's office?
This is why you point out that Doctor Who started in the 1960's. Nearly twenty years prior to Bill and Ted.
I've never felt more embarrassed to own a Fantastic Four shirt.
In all fairness, I'm assuming most Americans don't know what a police box is, and assume it's a phone booth.
Also... I'm kind of surprised that no one has pointed out yet that Bill & Ted were anything but geeks.
If Dr. Who wasn't pure shit, I'd have to disagree with him.
38 comments and counting. . . The Doctor is AMAZING!
1963 < 1989 regardless of hypothetical shit.
Let's pause in the nerdrage and consider some stuff. The Doctor Who that we currently enjoy began in 2005 with a reset in Season numbers. Before then, Who was fairly obscure in America outside of geek circles. Many who picked up the new series were unaware of previous Doctors and history. So for him, this show's only been around a few years, post Bill and Ted, and involves a time traveler traveling in a booth.The logic isn't hard to put together.
This person exists?Wow...
Outside of geek circles? There's...an outside?
'Anonymous said... Let's pause in the nerdrage and consider some stuff. The Doctor Who that we currently enjoy began in 2005 ...'All true. But five seconds on Google could have told him he was a prick, and wrong.
"Hold on! Before I say something, I must first Google it to ascertain whether or not I am in full possession of the facts, and am not, indeed, misinformed in anyway, otherwise I'd look like a complete prick!"The guy made a mistake. Jeez. I get the feeling the scorn is more aimed at his use of "dumbass" in describing Doctor Who than his actual ignorance of when Who began.
I think nowadays, most British people don't know what a police box is either, outside of Dr. Who.As well, I don't think Dr. Who was really obscure in America, not since the eighties anyway. The fourth Doctor used to be on TV all the time.
I want to agree with the poster that mentions that the "New" Who is... newer that B&T. But then I think what kind of comic store patron doesn't know that Dr. Who is from, like, the 60's? But then I think the amount of stuff I consider "Common Knowledge" that people in my Store don't know makes my head hurt. But then I think I just know a lot of nerd crap and most people might not know it. Then I think, "Why would I hang out with people like that? They probably... do... sports. Or lift weights for fun. Or something."
You know something at first I was thinking this guy was making a pretty relevant point using Bill and Ted, then remembered that Dr. Who has been around for like 50 or 60 years.
For the slackwits insisting that it makes sense for him not to know about the older Dr Who because only people 'in geek circles' knew about the Doctor prior to 2005, consider that this comic takes place IN A FUCKING COMIC BOOK STORE.Yeah. Shit. You're right. No geeks to be seen.
The current Doctor would totally do an air guitar.
"In all fairness, I'm assuming most Americans don't know what a police box is, and assume it's a phone booth."As an American who knows what a police box is I find that annoying along with anyone who watches the show has probably clearly seen Police Box printed on the TARDIS model at some point, especially people who might consider them fans.Personally Tom Baker is the best, but David Tenant after that.
Dr. Who sucks
