Wait… a de-stabalizer core is supposed to be stable? What the hell kind of sense does that make?
If this is a reference to 1984, I’m not sure the joke makes a whole lot of sense. Is there something else called Thoughtcrime?
Is this an obscure Queensrÿche joke?
It is what the thought police charged you with in 1984 (Orwell). :D
The Joke is “ideas” and “Big Companies” are in the same sentence.
Isn’t this the premise from that Leonardo di Caprio film from a few years back… Critters 3?
I don’t get it either.
He should be happy that the Mistress only used violence against his machine, not himself.
So do you wear the helmet or do they?
I think the joke is he stole the idea for the name from them
I’d like this “joke” to be officially explained. None of the explanations here is satisfying.
I don’t get it, but part of what I like about this comic and it’s sibling site is how much content gets cranked out.
They can’t all be gems. ^^
The punchline is based on the wordplay, particularly the use of the word “Philistines!” to deliver irony.
The domino-masked villain believes that the others destroyed his machine (and by extension, rejected his plan) because they are anti-intellectual and cannot see the brilliance of his plot. However, the ersatz Deathstroke actually had an initial interest in the premise, so that isn’t the case. The punchline, here is that the domino-masked villain’s plan to steal big ideas from companies and sell them back sounded good on paper, until they heard that his name for this plot is “Operation Thought Crime.” Such an unoriginal and boring nickname made the others see that this person would have no concept of what a big idea would be to know what to steal and sell back, and as such the plan would be a waste of time. He doesn’t have the creative mind necessary for developing big ideas (his plan is “let’s steal somebody else’s work/idea” which is actually quite lazy and uncouth). You can even see it in the costumes they wear, considering that the man on the left has the least impressive, interesting, utilitarian or visually dynamic costume… he wears bright yellow and purple, making it so that in a group of villains he’s the first thing anyone sees to attack. And he wears a cape, which serves no actual useful purpose but just gives him more surface area to be grabbed or catch on fire.
To lay it out in other words:
The joke is the guy who came up with the plan that lacks style or creativity has no sense of style or creativity and cannot see that he has no sense of style and creativity, yet he accuses others of having no sense of style or creativity because they realize that he has no sense of style or creativity.
Oh hey, the Mistress is back. This is her second appearance right?
@Ciel Thanks. They say explanation kills jokes, but you saved it for me. In order to steal great idea you have to at least be able to recognize what a great idea is. Guy wouldn’t if it hit him over the head. He would have stolen the Pippin from Apple.
