What a Fat-Head
I've been watching Transformers with my boy, and it's the first time I've revisited the cartoon series since my own childhood. On the one hand, it's still pretty fucking cool. Giant robots that transform into vehicles? Awesome. My son definitely thinks so. On the other hand, the writing is often atrocious. I don't expect too much from a kids' show that was essentially a glorified toy commercial, but when Optimus Prime uttered the words, "As the Earthlings would say, 'Fat chance, Fat-Head,'" it drained much of the nobility and wisdom my nostalgic memories had attributed to him. Now, that was just bad dialogue, and I still revere Optimus Prime in my pantheon of fictional heroes, but it did open up the potential for the jerk depicted in today's comic strip.
