The Funniest Watchmen-Related Photo of the Day (SPOILERS)

Via the ever-awesome Doselle Young and his iPhone.

Due to the photo’s spoilerrific qualities, it’s behind the cut.

If you’re reading this via RSS feed and haven’t seen Watchmen yet, well, I guess you should avert your eyes right about now.

  1. Matt – Gunnison, CO – Easy listenin, hard bowlin, slow mowin, small growin, yard bird with long term, ego driven, unrestrained, malformed visions of fame, fortune, and Princesses. Would love a career smuggling for the resistance damn the Empire's big guns, blockades and silly Death Stars.

    It is the Neptune in Seattle, went by it yesterday.

  2. Holy calamari!

    That’s hardly a spoiler, though. If you haven’t read the book or seen the movie, the marquee note simply seems to be a random bit of nonsense.

  3. But if you have read the comic and avoided all the info on the movie it could be a spoiler.

    I knew about it awhile ago so was wondering how it was changed.

    I am 50/50. I like this ending but also like the other ending.

  4. Josh – Crazy, amicable, and a bastard - Josh is a work in progress. Confused and unsure of what to do with himself, he's currently aiming to be a professional writer.

    I agree w/ MichaelC. I had to read it three times to realize what it meant (BYOB isn’t in my dictionary). That was already “spoiled” to me, but inconsistencies between the book and movie don’t effect people who haven’t read it yet. D:

  5. Simon Bisson – London – I'm Simon Bisson, a technology journalist and consultant who's been writing about enterprise IT issues for a long time now - and with the real world experience of designing and building large-scale loosely coupled systems: from telecom research labs to the early days of national ISPs, and from photo hosting platforms to telecom service platforms. It's been a long road from the early '90s to today - and a lot is happening around the world. I write about technology for magazines, websites, and newspapers in the UK. Keep an eye out for my byeline!

    Oh joy.

  6. re #6:
    Considering Rocky Horror ran at that theater for 15 years, I wouldn’t be surprised.
    (now showing at its sister theater around the corner instead)

  7. I….don’t think throwing squid at the movie screen gets the same effect as throwing octopus at a hockey rink.

  8. Agree with 7. MichaelC, having seen neither. Guess I’ll have a good laugh when I do, though.

    Makes me think of a Detroit hockey game more than anything else.

    But thanks for the spoiler alert! :-)

  9. I love living in Seattle so much. :)

    Anyway, is it just me, or is Watchmen (the story, at least as far as the movie is concerned – I haven’t read the comic) kinda completely overrated? Sure, Rorschach was great, but other than that – what’s the big deal here?

  10. Sub-Odeon – I'm a full-time nerd for a large medical care organization, and a part-time Soldier for the United States Army Reserve. I am into science fiction, military history, Utah Jazz NBA basketball, and busty women.

    Ah, the Neptune. Something of a Seattle landmark.

    I saw Star Wars Ep. 1 there.

    Unfortunately, Star Wars Ep. 1 sucked ass.

    As a venue, the Neptune wasn’t half bad.

  11. darlenemarshall – Florida – I write award winning historical romance, mostly about pirates, privateers, smugglers and the occasional possum. My books are available in ebook and print from the usual suspects, and I'm hard at work on my next novel.

    Perfect! Thanks for sharing.

  12. I agree that I can’t quite see why this is a spoiler: people who read it will be one of the following.

    1. Not read the book, don’t understand what it means (as in 9).
    2. Not read the book, and think (correctly) it means “This film does not contain squid”. That’s not a spoiler! How could that be a spoiler?
    3. Not read the book and think it means “this film is all about squid”. Again, not a spoiler, because it’s not true. Could be puzzling. Like sitting through the whole of “Blue Velvet” thinking “when is the horse going to come in?”
    4. Read the book and realise what it means. Again, not a spoiler – it tells you that you actually don’t know how it’s going to end. If anything it’s an unspoiler.

  13. 3. Not read the book and think it means “this film is all about squid”. Again, not a spoiler, because it’s not true. Could be puzzling. Like sitting through the whole of “Blue Velvet” thinking “when is the horse going to come in?”

    This kind of thing happened to me with The Sixth Sense. (and despite the expiration of the spoiler limit, I will note if you haven’t seen The Sixth Sense, don’t read ahead)

    Anyway, someone said to me “I couldn’t believe he was dead! Oh wait, you haven’t seen it yet. Sorry.” But for some reason I thought he was talking about the kid, not Bruce Willis, and went all through the film waiting for the big reveal about Joel Haley Osment’s character’s death. I completely ignored any clues dropped about the real twist, which made it even more effective, I think, than if I had seen the movie with no preconceptions at all.

  14. OK, trying to avoid spoilers for anyone who stumbled in here by mistake.

    Did no one notice the acronym on Veidt’s computers after he announces when his plan commenced?

    S.Q.U.I.D.

  15. A typographic call-out to “lower Manhattan”… Gotta love it.

    I wish the movie had been released closer to the last football season so I could make jokes about “Dr. Manhattan, as played by Visanthe Shianco of the Minnesota Vikings.”

    Even then, nobody would really get it.

    Nevermind.

  16. Dealing Aces – In Blackjack, an Ace showing can be high or low, and you don't know which it will be until you've seen your whole hand. And that still might not save you.

  17. Josh @#19.

    Yes, I posted it yesterday over at John’s Spoilers Statute of Limitations entry.

    Thanks, Greg @#33, for passing it along.

    As I stated over on Baen’s Bar where I found it, HvH’s an awesomely twisted, inspired mind.

    It’s a combination of Scooby Doo, the ’60s cartoon Batman, and Josie & the Pussycats/The Archies.
