Luci Phurr’s Imps “This is a mistake, right?” #9

Yeah, someone – you know who you are – owes me three hours of my life back after recommending that particular movie to me.

    From the people who know me they have all told me the same thing regarding me this movie. My favorite part would be when the damn thing sank.
    By the by if you happen to have a chance to see the Titanic museum exhibit that’s traveling ’round the country it is very much worth going to see.

    I spent a good chunk of that movie, which had supposedly been slavishly researched, thinking, “Well that would never happen… no way would they be allowed to do that… how did THAT happen NOW?”

    I would love to see that exhibit though. I’m a big fan of history.

    Look out for a big series of strips coming soon that reflect that… AND we revisit the Titanic too. Lots of fun seeing those strips come in from the art team.

    Whoa-I’d been thinking that imps were the least important demons,but jeez. Causing the Titanic to sink was quite an achievment. Well, they were kind of asking for it though-boasting about how it was “Unsinkable” and all that.

    Don’t mistake them being involved, for carrying out a cunning plan. I think as time goes on, it’ll become apparent that the Imps are effective evil IN SPITE of themselves.

    Reminds me of the “Other Four Horsemen” the only one of which I can remember is ‘the French’. If you’ve read Good Omens you’ll remember who I’m talking about. If you haven’t read the book go find a copy and write a will for you will die laughing.

    A “Good Omens” comparison (well, at least one that don’t include a line like “…these jokers can’t hold a candle to the work of Messers Pratchett and Gaiman.”) is high praise indeed. That book is one of my favorites and I will underscore your recommendation to anyone who hasn’t read it. Though I would suggest watching “The (original Gregory Peck version) Omen” first.

    Haha, “the movie or the real thing” now that’s great comedy!

    Thanks. We try our best.

    Actually I had never seen Gregory Peck’s “Omen” before I read “Good Omens”, but I had enough knowledge of it through sheer act of culture of being around horror freaks, that I got most of the jokes. I still have yet to see the Omen, mostly because my wife (yet another horror junkie) says that it was pretty damn bad.

    I can remember seeing the original years ago… when I was probably way too young. Scared me half to death and made my forever after suspicious of Orchestral Choirs. Whenever those guys show up, nothing good can come of it.

    WHOA! Misfortune was the one who sunk the Titanic? Shouldn’t he be higher up in the demonic hierarchy for pulling off one of the most famous tragedies/disasters at sea of all time?

    more chuckles and laughs. Your team is doing a great job. Thanks.

    Misfortune is the correct demon/imp for that job:
    The company which made the rivets used in the Titanic was having trouble obtaining the high-strength steel called for by the Titanic’s design. So…… they substituted rivets made of inferior material. Thus, when the Titanic hit, the inferior rivets popped out!
    It was the Misfortune of the passengers to be on that defective-rivet-constructed ship.

    Ahhhhh hah hah……..
