Even ignoring that phone call from 1991, and the fact that she probably wouldn’t have heard of the movie even if it were new… huh???

A week ago I wouldn’t have thought so; but then I spoke to somebody who insisted that “smarter than the average bear” came from the Chicago Bears.

Andréa sent this for the Geezer files. Was this strip well-known enough to justify this was a homage?

Mark Jackson asked whether this should get the geezer tag, since the movie came out half a century ago. My own thought is that the movie is a classic so people should continue to understand it, but I don’t think it even remotely works as a joke all these years later.

Okay, only three. But three people recognizing a reference to a show that went off the air 50 years ago isn’t half bad.
I’m giving this the geezer tag, of course, but not the CIDU — because I sort of see what he’s getting at, even if the gag is a bit too muddled to really work.

As if to remind me of my upcoming birthday, multiple people each sent me one of these “Geezer Alert” strips, none of which gave me a moment’s hesitation. To be fair, two of the three contained references from well before I was born.
So the question is, are all of these references well-known enough to take them out of geezer territory?

David Montgomery wonders whether this comic would make any sense to somebody not of this right age to get the circa 1970 reference:

Speaking of awkward, that dialog…
And is there any real joke here, or is this similar to Jeremy’s comment going over Connie’s head, indicated by his comment literally going over her head (I still think the hashtag thing should have had something to do with something there)?
And, y’know, 1987 called…

Is this geezer material, as Andréa suggests,or will “like a broken record” endure past the point where most people are familiar with its genesis?
And then one morning Scott Hilburn woke up and said ”Today is the day I force Bill to use the Geezer tag”

I couldn’t figure out why, when I booted up my computer this morning, it kept shouting “1968’s Calling! 1968’s Calling!”

And I don’t really get the joke either, unless it’s “if you understand this as all you’re old, ha ha!”
