Can we at least agree that we don't want a 3?

Even if you're not an Archer fan, would you take a quick look at #17 here?: https://www.buzzfeed.com/andyneuensc...he-danger-zone

Does that explain why I'm not an Archer fan?

(And what if it really were a competition?)

Did anyone else find number 17 in that list to be rather weak, compared to some others?

Isn't the artwork an excellent example of rotoscoping though?

Is it better than, say, old Archie cartoons?

But weren't they actually realistic depictions of that reality? Isn't that what Archie actually looked like?

Sure, but couldn't they have tried a little harder with the animation?

Remember when they visited Archie's ancestors in different periods, and in each case the whole gang looked exactly like their modern-day descendants?

Were they the gang's descendants, or did the gang time-travel?

The other two are so old, how long do you reckon before there really is a Beatles reunion?

Could we hear Beatles' music without the misplaced apostrophe?

Does the apostrophe placement make the music sound different?

Wouldn't it be okay to use the singular possessive if you were talking about a single Beatle? Say, for example, "That's a Beatle's drum kit"?

Because saying, "That's a Beatle's drum kit," instead of, "That's Ringo's drum kit," sounds weird?

How did Ringo's drumming compare to that of Keith Moon or John Bonham?

Are we talking "drumming" as in the 19th-century usage of the word?

Context? You mean like when I told my boss I was hard at work when I was trying to hide my erection?
