#1086: Funniest Dr. Who joke ever

That scene where the Doctor is wearing a gas mask, and the general in charge of UNIT just finished showing him how to operate the rifle!

General: "You understand?"
Doctor: "Are you my mummy?"
Ed: BWAAA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH AH AH AH AH ds;lkfjad;lkajdf
General: "Are you quite finished?"
Ed: *GASP* HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA *GASP* HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA etc

It was, of course, hearkening back to the first season episode where Christopher Eccleston was the Doctor and he and Rose were in London, and that little boy had been healed--incorrectly--by the nanobots from that medical thingamajig that Captain Jack was after, so that the gas mask was a permanent part of his face, and wandered around asking everyone, "Are you my mummy?" And the nanobots infected other people and "healed" them--so their faces were morphed into gas masks and they too wandered around asking, "Are you my mummy?"

So the Doctor, wearing a gas mask, asking that question, made me laugh so hard I missed the entirety of the general's motivational speech. I have never laughed so hard at an episode of Doctor Who, ever, not even any of the Tom Baker episodes. That was great.

I nearly busted every gut God gave me laughing at that. OMG. And I still have a headache from laughing at it.

Several years ago--not less than nine, I think--I got ahold of the first two episodes of the Starship Troopers anime. I think it was the first two episodes. I have only watched it once, because I never had the entire series. But someone's fansubbing it, and aight now I've got eps 1-4, out of a total of six, and the other two should be fansubbed, eventually.

A friend of mine and I watched it (nine years ago) and concluded that the anime version was a better treatment than Paul Verhoeven's was, even though the parts we saw didn't get as far as any actual combat or anything.

This time I'm waiting until I've got the whole thing before I watch it again.

I was kind of in a mood for a good laugh, anyway, though. While showering I kept thinking of things that only I would find funny, because the thing that made them funny were how they linked to other things in my brain. (And I came up with a new excuse for my lame jokes: "It's only a lame joke because you're not telepathic!")

In the Strong Bad e-mail Do Over, Strong Bad sings a song:
Don'tcha know I got a big ol' red head baby,
And a fat little body,
And I never change my clothes,
(falsetto)No I never change my clothes.
Homestar Runner--dressed as the Cheat--says, "Uh, Strong Bad? I think I'm falling for you."

You see, that's funny.

Then I sang,
Don'tcha know I work at Target,
And live with my mother,
And watch Japanese cartoons,
(falsetto)And watch Japanese cartoons.
And then, imitating Homestar's voice, said, "Uh, Ed? I think I'm falling for you."

And I laughed. Well, what do you expect? Showering alone is boring.
