Marge parks the car in the parking lot, and as she does, Homer sees a
nerd walk by.
Homer: [yelling at a student] Neeeerd!
Marge: Homer, that isn't very nice.
Homer: Marge, try to understand. There are two kinds of college
students: jocks and nerds. As a jock, it is my duty to give
nerds a hard time.
[A "jock" walks by]
Hey pal! Did you get a load of the nerd?
Jock: [not understanding] Pardon me?
From Homer goes to college.
Ah Sundays. It's around Sunday pm that I finally end up reading the News Review section of the SMH. I rarely read editorials, though do read the opinion pages, but being a nerd I saw the editorial that featured Daleks, and had a squiz.
You can see this editorial here (for now - this link will go by tomorrow).
It’s not about Daleks as such, more about Robert Ray of the ALP complaining about factional daleks. But in the likening of factional warlords to Daleks the SMH said this:
THE Daleks, the low-budget evil robots from Dr Who, had a fatal flaw: little wheels. If the good guys only ran up a staircase (or a ladder of opportunity) they would have their pursuers stumped - stuck at the bottom, impotently cawing their famous threats in tinny computer voices.
One – they’re not robots. They’re cyborgs. Little mutant creatures operating their outer mechanical suits. Two – while yes they have limited vertical mobility, as their wiki shows, they have somewhat countered this with use of anti-grav.
So SMH. Next time you jump up and down with Dr Who references get your facts right, or desperate, sad, overweight jerks like me will point these mistakes out in a most condescending manner.
Worst. Editorial. Ever.
