AND, TYRONE POSTED A SIGN SAYIGN “SORRY, WE TURNED INTO A WATERPARK INSTEAD OF A RESTAURANT TODAY” AND THEN THIS LADY CAME IN AND SAID SHE “WANTED HER BURGER EVEN IF THEY HAD TO SHIP IT OVER ON A BOAT” AND OMG IT WAS THE BEST DAY OF WORK IN MY LIFE I’M DYING

We live in a world where cartoons have to explain what a vcr is. I am scared

And here’s today’s reminder that I’m getting OLD.

No this joke is fantastic because it works on three levels.

  1. If you’re too young to know what VCRs were, “Ha ha, things used to be weird in the past.”
  2. If you’re old enough to know intellectually what they were, “Ha ha, young people need VCRs explained to them.  Silly kids.”
  3. If you’re old enough to actually remember using VCRs, “YES, THE CLOCKS, THEY DID ALWAYS FLASH 12:00 WHY COULD NO ONE FIGURE THAT OUT!”

Funny to three different groups for three different reasons.

i grew up with a vcr that told the correct time

The first thing I would do after setting up a VCR was set the correct time. (How else would you get the timer programming to work? No, I never used VCR-plus.)

Even without the instructions, I could usually work out intuitively how to program various models.

No, you guys are all missing the best part of this joke: the callouts to B:TAS, Cats Don’t Dance, and The Iron Giant.

And the case could be made that the “blinking 12:00” thing is a callout to Strong Bad Email.
Not necessarily, because it was a real thing that happened, but

it’s possible.
