    then why would you even attempt to get a joke of which the context is "LOST SPOILERS"?

    Oh good I wasn't the only one who noticed that

    Seriously, survivors, say something else for once

    Hurley is much more of a Snorlax than a Wartortle though, that or a Chancy/Clefairy

    So for this to be funny, I have to be interested in and have a good working knowledge of both Lost and Pokemon. Ehhhh.

    Or you could maybe possibly at some point in time have heard the phrase "gotta catch them all" and look at the picture

    I would assert that that level of familiarity with the subject matter is insufficient for humor to arise from the picture.

    As evidence, these guys:

    seem to be genuinely enjoying themselves. To me, that quote might as well be a random excerpt from a dissertation on Linear B for all I can glean from it.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed to reference humor on principle or anything. I usually just ignore it when I don't get it. I was simply annoyed by the fact that this is reference humor which requires knowledge of not one but two completely disparate pop-culture phenomena that I don't give a shit about. :P

    It is when you know why those faces were pasted onto those particular Pocket Monsters

    man
    i have never seen a bigger group of silly geese
    so you don't get the joke!
    i'm sorry

    seriously, if i went into g&t and posted "i don't get it" in every thread about a game i don't play/don't care about, pretty sure i'd be banned

    here's a thought
    it's clearly about LOST
    you don't watch LOST
    so why even bother reading/rating the thread?

    Yeah, I know. Like I said, I would usually move along. I just felt compelled to complain today.

    What can I say? Sometimes I make bad decisions. :(

    Personally, I found a hearty chuckle through this and so did a few of my mates.

    Four stars.

    Fantastic

    Hilarious, and even more so when you understand the Pokemon selection system.

    Yes, that was the joke. It wouldn't be funny if they were just random pokemon.
