Oh my God, we’re still doing food jokes? And not just any food jokes, but jokes that are so old, I remember being bored by them way back in grade school. Hey, Tom Batiuk, right back at ya:
What really wrings the neck of this attempt at humor is the bizarre…well, “continuity” for lack of a better word. For the past two days, Bernie and Thatsnaught have been standing in front of the vendos. Now, they’re still standing there, wearing the same clothes, as if only a few moments have passed between strip-days. So far so dull, but suddenly, there’s a professionally-taped notice on the vendos that was not there before. It’s like a low-budget movie where the script girl was out sick one day. “Okay, that’s a wrap, loves; gotta get this stinker in the can!”
I could imagine someone like Philip K. Dick could take this “off” situation and create something out of it…Eye In The Sky comes to mind; there’s actually a scene with a vending machine! Philip K. Dick could be quite irritating at times, but his imagination was never in doubt.
Unlike some people I could name.
