Ah, one of my favorite characters and one of my favorite scenes... You're from two different worlds! I have indeed wasted my life.
Hilarious! When I think of the Comic Book Guy, I immediately think of this scene. (That, or another episode in which he comments that one hundred tacos should be "adequate sustenance for the Doctor Who marathon."). This was a nice choice on the eve of the release of The Simpsons movie. I only wish there was a YouTube clip posted of that scene in which Springfield school children ponder whether or not the new monorail is faster than the Flash!
i thought it AMAZING and serendipitous that i found the exact rightly timed clip to post--you get the set-up, the Aquaman joke, and then the pay-off, and then you're out!there are 2 more Aquaman refs on the show, but this one made me howl with laughter when it first aired."Can Superman outrun the Flash?""Eh, sure, why not?"
Oh man, that's classic. I know that most comic book nerds have felt that sentiment at one point or another... I know for me it came while cleaning out the mountains of X-books I cought when I was in my tweens...Great clip, rob!
I never saw this episode but I do remember feeling like that from time to time. Once I gave away much of my collection to friends. Now I wish I had them back. Comics are not a waste of time. However, if you aren't making a living off of them then you should not take them so seriously but just have fun.
