Funniest, Most Disturbing GI JOE: RESOLUTE Review I’ve Seen [Apr. 26th, 2009|09:54 pm]
Warren Ellis

From Topless Robot:

You know how we all complain that so-and-so raped our childhoods? Well, this is the exact opposite. I used this line in my Twitter, but I stand by it — G.I. Joe: Resolute is like Warren Ellis made tender, passionate love to our childhoods, and he had an enormous dick.

Rrrrreally not sure how to feel about that one.

You made me laugh and spill tea upon my keyboard.

I work at Fermilab in the Main Control Room.

I shall blame you if the Tevatron does not find the Higgs before the LHC.

I think the correct response is "Thank you very much, now here is your restraining order."

(Also, people who bitch about their childhoods being raped need to get some fucking perspective, and possibly a knee in the crotchular area.)

Fucking perspective is a good thing to have (and yes, your larger point is very important).

I think he's implying that you're a pedophile.

Sorry to hear that, but explains why they said, "and he HAD an enormous dick."

Perils of having a detachable penis, I suppose

As long as it was consensual...

Though I'd take umbridge at the use of 'dick', singular.

Hmm... well, if it's not rape than it has to be consentual, so it's a good thing and if it was passionate and tender and you have a really big dick then it's a fantastic thing!! So obviously, go you! You didn't wreck a childhood institution. Which you didn't... but it's always nice to have a (we think it's) good review!

I completely agree. Even though I wonder why Solider One didn't aim for the less bulletproof bad guy...

Well, I wasn't going to go with the dick reference. I wanted to say that my childhood memories had inserted all the blood and bullets into the gay-ass cartoon lasers they used, and this cartoon brought everything that had been in my head into full realization.

Everything I'd always wanted from G.I. Joe.

GI Joe was that nerdy girl that used to hang around when we were kids. She was ok, but not quite as close as our buddies were. Sure, it was ok to have her around.

Then we got a bit older, and girls were yucky, so we ditched her for "cooler" guy stuff.

In high school, we saw that she was overweight, pimply-faced, and just not cool at all, and wrote her off as "what were we thinking?"

Warren Ellis has now returned GI Joe to us, like seeing her again at the high school reunion. But now, she's lost weight, her skin is perfect, and she is the hot super-model babe we all lusted after. Thank you!

Warren, thank you for changing a completely unwatchable toy commercial in to something that actual worth watching. Huzzah for over elaborate science! Huzzah for sticking to cannon characters with new additions to their personalities. Though I kept finding myself trying to make up the old fashion names for the unnamed heroes by what they simply did, or what they were called by the main cast.

I faintly recall that there are many quotes concerning Warren Ellis's genital superiority. Only one comes to mind, though. Maybe they should be collected somewhere for the sake of future generations. I'll start!

"Warren Ellis does not drink girly drinks. He drinks man drinks. Because he is a man. A MAN. He has manly parts. He. Is. Made. Of. Man. Parts."

That's what happens when the reviewer has been watching too many "Japanese cartoon porn". Or hangs out at certain bottom-of-the-barrel user-generated content imageboards forums web sites. Seriously.

You know what I'm talking about.

I bet it was consensual missionary position sex, because Warren Ellis is just sick like that.

My childhood was asking for it.

Just so you know you are way down on the list of people my childhood will be calling to inform them of it's new medical status.

Saw it on there the other day, and I cracked up.

And now I see that you saw it, and cracked up again.

Life is good. And so is the toon.

Maybe they just mean you're creatively well-endowed.

Not that you can't have an enormous dick, too.
