Comic:  “The problem with Manhattan”

About this comic


I promise, no more Watchmen jokes, and no more blue wiener jokes. Just had to get this one out of my system. EDIT: I should make something clear. I don’t think that people are afraid of wieners. I think they are just incredibly distracted by them. “What did that guy say?” “I don’t know, I was too distracted by that blue wiener again.”

    God help us all.

  2. Gene says:

    There’s nothing wrong with Watchmen jokes… especially when they’re funny.

  3. Cantonkid says:

    Agree with Gene. I think Dr. Manhattan is gonna be a running gag for some time to come. Wait until the coming Halloween or when the syndicated shows come around next season. I’m thnking Big Bang Theory, South Park, or Simpsons may have something to say about big blue 😉

  4. Felix says:

    I thought it was funny!

  5. dman0001 says:

    LOL – nice –
    And bring on the Watchmen jokes, a funny joke is a funny joke. Looking forward to Star Trek, Terminator, and Wolverine jokes by the truckload in May

  6. Dave_nab says:

    To be fair the blue wiener did get too much screen time in the movie IMO.

  7. Dan says:

    I agree with dave… I’ve seen enough blue weiner to last my entire life

  8. Vamuli says:

    Oh you silly Americans and your silly irrational fear of wieners

  9. Scott says:

    @Vamuli: Oh you Europeans and your irrational willingness to sit around chatting with each other with all your wieners hanging out of your pants. 🙂

  10. O says:

    @Scott: Oh, you silly Johnson and your name that sounds like wiener.

  11. Scott says:

    hehe…Johnson. Long distinguished johnson!

  12. Bex says:

    I didn’t think the weiner was bad at all. It was kinda like watching the statue of David floating around; not really offensive or disgusting imo.

    btw, I am American.

  13. Antimon says:

    I don’t get it what you all have agaisnt it, are you so homophobic?

  14. Scott says:

    @Antimon: No. Do you prefer people around you whip out their dingus and wave it around your face while you try and talk about the weather and politics? No judging…just curious.

  15. Diego S. says:

    ok heres an idea for next halloween, paint urself blue and when they ask u what u are, say “dr manhattans blue johnson” xD

  16. Darrell says:

    If someone waves their wiener around, I will just think they are from a very odd culture and embrace them for it.
    Not literally though.

    Made me lol. 😛 Nice one!

      I experienced wactihng Joshua formulating his creative idea for The Linen District and as he developed his presentation and expressed why it is perfect for this particular district, I realized that it is indeed right. I watched him create the exquisite lampshade and the interior form with great enthusiasm and ease and in the end, his final presentation, from the actual model to the written word beacon , I understood that this work of art belongs there. From the shape and size, to the exquisite detail, and the dramatic base that supports the beautiful lampshade, I can visualize it being the right choice for the community. When the lights turn on, Boise will know they have made the right choice.

  19. Zorbane says:


    There I said it 🙁

  20. LOL! Yeah, it’s not good that the watchmaker’s pendulum is what most people will remember the movie for. Sure, there was the exploration of the dark side of human nature, the idea of slaughtering millions to save billions, and I think there was a breast or two somewhere, but dammit, they played the wiener card!

  21. Saltybob says:

    more blue wiener Scott? come on

  22. Scott says:

    Yes. MORE blue wiener! MORE! MOOOOORRRRREEEE!!!!!

    @ Antimon

    Just because someone does not want to watch a dangling participle swing across the big screen doesn’t make them homophobic. Homophobia is a irrational fear of homosexuals, hence the word phobia. I just don’t know too many men that enjoy staring at dongs.

    Personally I was not at all bothered by Long Jon Blu-wang. Because it was glowing blue it did not seem as real as it would have been had it been actual color, had it been I would have been more uncomfortable, like I was with watching the sex scenes with the hottie with my son in law sitting next to me. I like cheesecake but it was uncomfortable. But what I do get bothered by is all this Homophobia -hysteria. “Oh you didn’t like the big blue dick”, you must be a homophobe – or in the closet. BS!

  25. dman0001 says:

    I am glad that they made the movie uncompromising and true to the novel. If the director had given into the execs and made it an anti-terrorism, iraq war metaphor then I would have been ticked. I want movies based on subject matter to be faithful to the subject matter, and in that case it meant brutality, nudity, sex, dark themes, and a modest size big blue wang. I just feel bad for Jon that he always has blue balls 🙂

  26. DCorbin says:

    I feel bad for the guy who got shafted with front row seats.

  27. Randallw says:

    I hardly noticed downtown Manhattan (As I call it), but when they had the big sex scene I began to get annoyed/bored and was just wishing they’d get it over and done with.

  28. Scott says:

    There was WAY more blue wiener in the movie than in the novel, and much more detailed blue wiener too.

  29. prion says:

    Dcorbin come on man try not to use the word ‘shafted’

  30. Robert says:

    I dunno man, me thinks the blue wiener jokes have jumped the shark. This one felt forced.

  31. Scott says:

    I agree. totally forced.

  32. PurrNaK says:

    Really not against nudity in movies. Hell I’m connected to the internets.

    But what a few of my friends are against, is that the movie wasn’t consistant. He was naked most of the time, but then had underwear on at other points.

    Okay I understand that he knows everything and doesn’t see the need for unnatural clothing. But either be naked all the time or always wear the thong.

  33. Saltybob says:

    I saw it in the movie only like once.

      July 24, 2013 at 9:04 am Ha!!!! Wienery things!!!!!! Well, fanlily, something I am a PRO at around here (well not really, I’m an older sister to my brother whom is 3 years younger than me). Well let me put you at ease right now, he is my bestest friend. We protected each other from bullies and would have sleepovers , and the only secret is, convenience! My parents played baseball with us both, there were a TON of unisex games in our home and while Barbied my face off and broseph Legoed his days away, we ALWAYS played with each other. It’s really the convenience of it all.Congrats!!!!

    There are times in the book where they tell him to wear clothes. but most of the time he couldnt care less because he is detached from humanity and human convention
