Bad is a relative term. Cheesy

There was a great bit on the Conan tonite: a recurring character, allegedly an angry graphic designer for the show, sits in a recliner and tells America that he's mad as hell and not going to take it anymore"  about some issue of National Importance.  

Tonite he went on a tirade about the Justice League action figures: how you have to buy the 10" Batman twice in order to get Wonder Woman (she only comes in a double pack with Bats), how some of the 4" figures don't stand up on their own without glue, etc.  Very funny but also scary because, even though I don't buy those toys, I actually knew what he was talking about!  :oops:  Lots of great details for fans willing to laugh at themselves.  I wish I could find a link to post!

Ah hah!

The segment is called "Pierre Bernard's Recliner of Rage" and Bernard is a real designer on the Conan show.

Apparently, he has the Robotech fan base stirred up!

Not only is he a real Graphic Designer on the show, but he really is like that in real life.

I think it would be great if he became more of a superstar in the fan firmament.  I wonder if he's been invited to any conventions?
