    Isn’t Forbidden Planet the movie where Leslie Nielsen tells the Robot from Lost In Space, “Don’t call me Shirley”?

    Farther down his twitter feed Iowahawk links this Wash Post article in a blast from the past.
    It’s a little less over the top than the more recent, actual, article but Iowahawk is usually more subtle.

    I’ve always liked this reference to monsters on maps

    I know it didn’t really match, but every time I see the “monsters here” reference, that scene is my first thought. It’s also one of my favorites of that series. Billy Bob is awesome there

    ^ Well, my “thar” ain’t proper, neither;
    but I wanted to say “thar” with the, you know, whale motif an’ all.
