  1. Did we solve it then? I think the 24 hour project would be fair game to repost ones that never got solved…

  2. @ larK – I thought the previous solution was sufficient, but I’m not qualified to be an impartial judge. 😉

  3. Mitch4: I would actually say it’s the opposite. “Oh those kids today” is about how the kids today are into silly fads. An alien monolith would legitimately be a very big deal, and someone who lumped it in with other things “kids today” liked, would have a badly skewed perspective.

  4. Winter Wallaby. But that’s the point. It’s not the kids into silly fads that’s the joke; its the grups who dismiss everything as just kids into silly fads.

  5. @chipchristian: Just as well, not many of us would recognize Clarke or Kubrick. Just their work. However, your revelation does lend the comic an additional layer of confusing.

  6. I like chipchristian’s idea, but neither of the characters drawn here looks anything like any photo of Clark or Kubrick that I could find. It would have been a superb addition to the humor.
    P.S. Near the end of the first “Incredibles” movie, there is a gag with two men commenting about “old school (action)”, but it’s actually a deferential nod to a pair of classic animators, Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, two of Disney’s “Nine Old Men”, who provided their own voices for the cameo.
