Holy mother of cheese. This is one of the funniest things I’ve ever read.
Those who frequent Something Awful may have seen this. It’s called FashionSWAT - a couple guys who work on the site take old fashion ads and review them. I could not stop laughing at these. The link goes to their review of some obscure comic book characters, which is one of the best articles so far.
If you need a good laugh today, check it out. That section of the site is safe for work.
Another site that has a very funny Superhero (and villain) page is www.Seanbaby.com. I doubt if anyone’s at-work firewalls will allow this to come through, as even the banner ads would be decidedly non-work friendly. That being said, his reviews of the Superfriends are absolutely hysterical (YMMV).
The review of Dr. Bong practically had me rolling on the floor with lines like:
"First of all, Dr. Bong is totally the name of your college roommate who ate all your Bugles. And then you’d come home and find him having sex with a really ugly hippie girl on your bed, and you’d say “what the fuck, Dr. Bong,” and he’d go “dude, there was a tie on the door!” and you’d say “what the fuck is a tie on the door supposed to mean,” and he’d say “dude!”
And the Clock King:
*"Marital Status: Single. What?! How?! THIS GUY IS A CATCH! “Oh Betty, I hear you’re dating the clock guy.” “NO! We went out once! ONCE!” *
Do check out the other reviews they do. Some of the retro fashion ads are hilarious.
