yeah but, but, butt

oh i get it, you're just trying to make me look like a BIGGER geek.


i think the hulk was an adaptation of star wars episode 5 that went horribly
anybody else catch the r2-d2 garbage can in bruce's lab?

the plot certainly makes more sense in that light.

i submitted it to the cannes film festival,

it was a science project.

he got an A.
