    Spoony "reviews" Wing Commander

    That's how most jokes work, man; they're funny because they take something real or familiar and add a touch of the absurd, through wordplay or observation. Not sure what else to say.

    The sticks that got me through the Kilrathi War and beyond...

    I know you are, but what am- ah, you get it. :D Anyhow! I don't think there's any need to worry about the guy being 'e-ragey'. Getting down to brass tacks, he's a comedian; maybe a bad one, maybe a good one, that's everyone's call to make. But the thing is, the difference between LeHah's post...

    Entertainment can just be for entertainment's sake, and not necessarily intended to be at anyone's expense; and with comedy, it's often more the way you tell 'em. Old jokes and jokes someone doesn't necessarily relate to can still get a laugh. And hey, I do know the games and the movie, and I...

    To be fair, he doesn't like Highlander 2 at all. He just has a poster of it.
