    Yesss. I referenced that just the other day and got the same reaction.

    You and me, Tycho. You and me.

    They are obviously mocking CAD's constant need to explain and re-explain its jokes in only four panels.

    Also man's inhumanity to man.

    I thought Tycho was saying that Kara is an excellent karate fighter.

    Or that Kara succumbed to horrible 3rd degree burns after rescuing children from a fiery church.

    I think the humor in this lies in whether you have had this exact moment before or not.


    If I pretty much completely go over the plot of a movie in my reference I should not then have to restate the plot of the movie for you to get the reference. It should be relatively obvious based on context.

    I always think of The Karate Kid first, of course, but The Crossroads comes up second when I think of him. Third is My Cousin Vinnie, and fourth is Hey I Don't Know Anything Else He Was Ever In.

    Fifth is confusing him with the editor at Marvel that has the exact same name.

    the movie being referenced here is based on the story of robert johnson, who was a black dude. ralph macchio would have been hard pressed to play robert johnson.

    This would have been a better comic if it had realized that:

    a) the movie is "Crossroads", not "The Crossroads", and
    b) Ralph Macchio does not, in fact, trade his soul to the devil in that movie; he gambles it to win back the soul of his buddy who did.

    And I would be a better person if I didn't know either of those things off the top of my head.

    Yeah I kind of remember him attempting to redeem the old blues man by beating Steve Vai at rockin' out blues-style. But still, the movie is about that. Hmm. You're right though, the reference is botched; Macchio is just awesome at guitar in that movie, even if his hands are clearly not even in the right place on the guitar (e.g. hands close together for low notes).

    Old-time blues men were all black. Even Josh White was actually black. His middle name was "Aint."
