Please Make This an Internet Meme

I was in the process of writing up last night's Secret Science Club lecture when I realized that I don't have the time to do the lecture justice tonight (I'll finish the wrap-up A.S.A.P., but I gots to find some good links on primate cladistics). Time for a short, goofy post...

In the vein of the Pirates vs. Ninjas meme, I think the next big hypothetical match-up a la Superman vs. Mighty Mouse or Hunahpu vs. Xbalanque should be Jetpacks vs. Choppers. I have to confess, I can't stop laughing at the sheer perfection of the delivery of the line: You gotta make up some rules, because you’re going to have jetpacks flying into choppers! Brian Kilmeade sounds so abysmally stupid that he must be a subversive comedic genius, waging a stealth campaign to completely undermine his network. It may be, though, that my suspicion that Kilmeade's a brilliant satirist is just the effect of Poe's Law (more broadly defined to include all modern "Conservative" thought) in action.

Jetpacks vs. Choppers, baby, 'cos somtimes ya gotta break the rules.

I feel the Hatredcopters will win.

Them jetpacks (OK, actually ducted-fan-packs) can stay in the air for 30 minutes, and get up to a fair altitude, so there would be potential problems if anyone could actually afford to buy the noisy little feckers.

Hmmm... someone should design ducted fanny packs, so the tourists could get around quickly.

GET TO THE CHOPPA!!!

A jetpack would get you there quickly.

Can't make up mind whether you rate for choppers or jetpacks?

The Martin company pops up with a press release every 6 months or so, announcing that they finally have a commercial version of the jetpack, and production is about to start, and an overseas company whose name is commercially sensitive is on the verge of signing a contract for dozens of them, and by the way can someone lend them another million?

You will also find people describing them as "wearable helicopters", which HA HA destroys your entire antithesis.

Jetpacks on Segways would be so awesome.

Call me old fashioned, but all you youngsters dashing frantically about in your jet packs, ducted fanny packs and choppers just makes me exhausted.

GET OFF MY BLIMP!!
