For that matter, was Roots ever the gold standard for long chapters?

So… is the film iconic enough that I shouldn’t have used the Geezers tag?

Holy Geezer Reference, Batman!

Cidu Bill on May 22nd 2016

Seriously, is this a reference a 7-year-old in 2016 is likely to know, let alone use?

Welcome to the Hotel Geezer

Cidu Bill on Jul 6th 2015

Geezer reference or not? I’ll leave the question to our younger guests.

I know my kids would recognize the reference, because I’ve used it the same way Janis did (alternating with allusions to Roach Motel)

Well, I guess they ARE geezers…

Cidu Bill on Jun 22nd 2015

but I wonder whether this works as a gag for people unfamiliar with the original.

1983 called, and said “Marlon Brando would have worked better anyway”

Cidu Bill on Dec 15th 2014

Though I was also considering “We will run no gag after its time”

Way to go, Idaho!

Cidu Bill on Sep 10th 2014

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 Shot of Geezerhood?

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.

The Little Geezer

Cidu Bill on Jan 31st 2014

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

In other words, should this get the Geezer tag?

No Geezer Tag For You!

Cidu Bill on Dec 13th 2013

I’m thinking no on Andréa’s submission, since the show’s in constant syndication. YMMV.

Bird

Cidu Bill on Dec 13th 2013

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.

Thoughts?

Eight Million People Submitted This One

Cidu Bill on Nov 9th 2013

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.
