Why did Dr. Manhattan cross the road?
It is May 18, 1979. I am crossing a road.

(fuck you, I think it’s funny)
I think it is a brilliant joke. brilliant blue to be exact..lol
I lol’d a bit too, to be honest.
Am I laughing because it’s funny, or am I laughing because I remember that I would laugh now?
Your laughing because you have no control over your destiny, and see past/ppresent/future all at once. You know you’re supposed to laugh.
I, however am laughing like a hyena at the nekkid blue guy who thinks he’s dam Frogger.
It is November 11th, 2009. A Canadian legal student posts a joke melding well known humorous precedents and a famous work by Alan Moore.
I respond with further self indulgent referencing. The morality of the matter eludes me.
For the longest time I did not realize that “To get to the other side” meant that the chicken was trying to commit suicide.
Rabid Cow, you just blew my mind.
But how does Ringo Starr fit into this?
By convincing Dr Manhatten to cross the road, Ringo causes traffic to back up that day. The resulting traffic jam causes Adrian Veidt to miss an important meeting in New York that day, during which an analysis of world events, coupled with a bad case of indigestion acquired at a bad Hungarian deli on Bleecker, would have led Veidt into an increasingly paranoid state about nuclear armeggedon, and speculations about drastic means to prevent it. Instead, he decides to devote the rest of his life to his passion for giant lynxes. This, of course, leads to a happier ending for ‘Watchmen’, and a sunnier disposition for Alan Moore, who becomes known for his upbeat comics. It is because of this optimistic writing that leads the reunited Beatles to hire Moore to write their monthly comic-book series, which naturally, is full of peace and love. ‘The Fab Adventures of the Beatles’ goes on to become one of the most beloved comic series of all time (second only to ‘The New Adventures Of Hellcat’), and is largely responsible for the renewed popularity of comics amoung the general population, and their return to widespread newstand distribution.
Ringo knows what he’s doing.
Yeah, but Veidt crossed the road thirty-five minutes ago.
Chicken crosses road. People wonder why. Chicken wanted to get to the other side.
Good joke. Everyone laughs.
I laughed so hard it made me impotent.
Q: How many Dr. Manhattans does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
A: I just don’t know what pleases you anymore, Laurie.
OK, the original post didn’t do much for me, but EWHPTIV made me giggle.
It is November 12, 2009. I’m laughing at a Dr. Manhattan joke.
It is February 3, 1996. I’m trying not to look at Dr. Manhattan’s wang.
A crossed road and an uncrossed road contain the same number of particles. Structurally, there’s no discernible difference.
…Ringo is the early years of the Doctor’s first regeneration?
