Big Bang Theory Help
« on: June 25, 2013, 04:52:51 PM »
Okay
I'm going on the radio tomorrow,
and they're 100% going to ask me either:

"which character on the big bang theory do you most resemble?"
"which character on the big bang theory do you like the most?"
or
"do you like the big bang theory?"

now the answer to this is that i don't watch the big bang theory.
so i need to come up with funny answers to the questions that aren't duds.

below are some answers I can think of... please advise me.

"which character on BBT?"
"I don't know... Is big bird a character?"






I like this joke because it's something a little kid would say. like, a 4 year old or something.
tigerpika thinks that it is disparaging, and I'm implying that BBT is for stupid people.

"Ummmm. I don't... Is captain picard on the BBT? I choose captain picard."





I like this because it is also childish, and  it makes me seem nerdy, but it doesn't have the implication that BBT is for stupid babies.

On the other hand, I like the big bird joke a lot more.

"er.. Is Balki Bartokomous a character? I only watch shows with Balki on them."

or

"er... Is Steve Urkel a character on BBT?"

either of these.

not as nerdy as the captain picard. more absurd. makes a little more sense.

I've watched quite a bit of BBT.  For a serious answer you don't seem to resemble any of the characters; none of them use clever and humorous analogies that anybody can understand the way you do.  Unfortunately I'm not good at jokes so no funny answers :(

I'm really attached to pretending that I don't watch enough TV,
and that I think that my favourite characters from the 80's and 90's would be on it.

but some jokes don't work.

"Umm. Is Homer Simpson a character?"
is implausible, so not funny.

I think the sesame street joke works, because only a little kid would think that a character from one show would be on another show.

I polled twitter and Ryan Haupt said

"the one who isn't a reductive parody, so probably Chandler."

which is pretty funny.
but then i'd have to tell them about how BBT is kind of making fun of me, and that would be a BUZZ KILL.

"Oh man. the only thing I ever get out of the big bang theory is a whole bunch of baryons and also a bunch of crappy photons"

Winner!

The Big Bang Theory is a pretty good show, as far as sitcoms go, but the characters aren't real people.  They're parodies of certain stereotypes that have just been made ridiculous.  To ask you which one of them you most resemble is pretty insulting.  But I bet they will ask you anyway...

How did the interview go? Did you get a big bang theory question after all?

it went okay.
tigerpika suggests i talked a little too fast.
they didn't ask about the big bang theory.

in other news, i'll be interviewed again next tuesday on the cbc for a local morning show.
that'll probably be podcasted. i'll make a note of it if it is.
