The second panel is actually something I heard an adult say while Stephanie and I attended a parking lot flea market this fall. OK, I added the part about the stone age, but that’s it. (They did say “Where are we?!”)
Speaking of VHS, my trusty VHS player died recently. It was a sad day. For me. Stephanie asked why I even still had a VHS player. For all my old MST3K episodes I taped off TV in the 90’s. DUH.
Also my VHS Record of Lodoss War collection. Kids today will never know the experience of playing $20 each for an imported, dubbed anime VHS tape in a pre-YouTube society. (I think my six tape Record of Lodoss War set cost around $100 at a Media Play in the late 1990s.).
Update: RIP, David Bowie. I just found out a couple of hours ago, and it is quite the blow. Couldn’t begin to guess how many hours I’ve spent listening to his music. Here’s a comic I did with a Bowie reference.
[[HB and No Filter Fox are leaving a store named Tape Worm: Used VHS and Beta, and are waling through a parking lot. HB holds a VHS tape, No Filter Fox holds his smarthphone.]]
HB: I think modern technology makes everyone entitled!
No Filter Fox: C’mon, no it doesn’t—
[[No Filter Fox holds up his smartphone and yells]]
No Filter Fox: What?! This parking lot ain’t got no wi-fi?! Where are we?! The Stone Age?!
[[HB covers his face with the VHS tape, which is Short Circuit 2.]]
