you know that one tumblr powerpoint someone made a few months ago about satiation slowly changing the way you perceive humor until at some point you transcend humor altogether and someday we as a society will find only magnified jpeg images of hank hill with the words WEED printed over it hilarious?

i feel like i understand that now. i feel like this is it, this photoset is the surreal, nonsensical apex we are collectively inching towards. it’s vague and incomprehensible and even kind of threatening, but it’s as inevitable as the heat death of the universe and all we can do is submit ourselves to it

Rifftrax: Batman & Robin - Batman Victorious (1949/2014)

From Rifftrax:

Here it is, at last, the FINAL EPISODEchronicling Batman’s struggle against the Wizard! The suspense is thick, and everyone’s wondering: who will prevail and be victorious? Will it be the nefarious Wizard or — wait, oh come on, it’s right there in the stupid title! That’d be like titling the Seinfeld finale “They wind up in jail” or the Lost finale “Don’t bother watching.”

One thing the title doesn’t give away is the identity of the Wizard, most likely because the writers of the serial didn’t get around to deciding who that would be until they started shooting the final scenes of this episode. Is it the old occasionally-in-a-wheelchair guy? Or occasionally-in-a-wheelchair guy’s butler? Convenient-provider-of-exposition radio guy? Vicki Vale’s dead brother, who everybody seems to have completely forgotten about, including her? I think we all know the real answer: Gabe. Gabe, you beautiful mastermind, you’ve been pulling the strings all along! Bless you, sweet prince.

No matter how it turns out, one thing’s for certain: after the Wizard, Batman never faced another enemy again and Gotham City lived in peace and prosperity forever. Join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for the victory-filled conclusion,Batman Victorious! 

Now available from Rifftrax, where it’s available, along with all fourteen previous episodes, for $1.99 each, so if you were waiting until you could binge on the entire serial like some kind of compulsive serial-stuffing lunatic, you need wait no longer.
