There's a certain level of comedic irony/sheer myopia involved in a [presumably mainstream/superhero] comics fan failing to see that "it's not real" and "this is basically the same thing as what they did last year" are largely irrelevant points when evaluating forever serialized works fiction. But I suppose professional wrestling fails as a "sport" the way that The Avengers fails as a "documentary."
Wrestling is a sport if you think of it more like exhibition gymnastics and accept that the winner/loser part is just for show.
Wrestling IS a sport. But Wrestlemania and the rest of the WWF isn't wrestling. It's theatre.
superheroes are the wrestlemania of comics. it's the same sweaty shit every year and only children and hillbillies think it's real.
He mentioned wrestling in the same breath as sports. As a wrestling fan, I find this hilarious. And for the record, I never got complaining about because it's fake. So? The Dark Knight was fake, it still made a billion. Fake's got nothing to do with anything.
You're right. Fake doesn't. The "boring" part of wrestling does.
Well, that's like, just your opinion, yo.
I love pro wrestling for the same reason I love superhero comics -- larger than life characters, over the top melodrama, good guys and bad guys (and some in-betweeners) and VIOLENCE.Also, McRibs are DELICIOUS.
Hey now!! If there's one thing Hillbillies know, it's ribs!!!
The McRib has nothing to do with ribs.
Does that mean the McRib is culinary kayfabe?
Finally the McRib has come back to McDonald's.Put your rib on a roll and open your mouth.I'm the strombili-beating, rib-eating, sauce-glazing, eyebrow-raising, the best in the present, future and past, and if ya’ll don’t like me you can drink the people’s sauce! If you smeelllll what the Mac is cooking.
I have always suspected the McRib was made of sweaty shit. It would explain the taste.
Wrestlemania, McRib, Children, Hillbillies.Wow, I bet he is one of those old cynic bloggers if he can talk shit about so many things with so little words.
I'll like pro wrestling again when the matches aren't "fixed", considering it's all pre-written "storylines".
Do you hate all fiction, or just the kinds that you can be an ignorant snob towards?
Why, the latter, of course. Unless you're an insider within the wrestling world that knows all the behind-the-scenes actions and/or even participates in them, I will keep voicing my disdain for pro-wrestling, where their fiction seems to run so thick that they decide who the victor is long before the match even starts.
Their fiction runs so thick because it is, unquestionably, fiction. Just like how the fights in comics and movies are pre-determined. Kayfabe has been dead for at least 20 years, even wrestling companies don't pretend wrestling is real anymore.
I've never had a McRib. What am I missing?
Cholesterol and diabetes.
It's easy to simulate. Find any cheap barbecue sauce. Add 3 cups white sugar and mix, but not too well. Take any piece of cardboard, soak it in salt water overnight. Coat the cardboard in the barbeque sauce and serve on a stale bun, with pickle and onion. In terms of taste, this is an exact match, although this does have a higher nutritional content than an actual McRib.
It's a soap opera for rednecks and morons. Nothing more, nothing less.
Your classism is not a positive character trait.
This is the funniest thing I've ever seen in this comic.
