Re: 1337: "Hack"

Am I the only one disappointed by the fact that while Crash's slogan appeared on the monitors, the final panels suggest that Burn executed the hack? I was disappointed by this, until I realized the movie came out about 19 years ago. If Crash and Burn are still hangin out in pools together, they're ...

Re: 1054: "The Bacon"

If you have to explain a joke, there is no joke. That's why I like to preemptively bring up the Hutterites in casual conversation, and explain the history behind the movement, who they are, and their general worldview and convictions. That way later people can "get it" when I tell my Jabb...
