Use #4,562 for my storehouse of pop culture knowledge

My father describes the editorial cartoons to me over the phone and I explain the intertextual allusions. Case in point: Thomas "Tab" Boldt of the Calgary Sun's recent take on the foiled shampoo plot. Just from Dad's description, I was able to explain the Twilight Zone reference. Am I good, or what?

Slightly befuddled by pop culture references? Not sure what folks are talking about? Call me! I'm available day and night. Donations accepted (to defray the costs of having spent too much of my life absorbing late capitalist crap).
