Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Sick Day Edition


This morning, I awoke feeling like I had a head full of bees and every joint in my body was composed of a mass of broken glass too large for the socket or skin around it.  I also had an urge to lie in bed all day and read the Volume 4 “5 Years Later” Legion of Super-Heroes run, whose post-apocalyptic world-rebuilding, adult themes and intentionally primitive art style were prescient of many of today’s comics.  (It wasn’t a 100% accurate premonition of today’s New 52, though, as it still had a lot of humor and glimmer of hope amidst its cynicism.)  Often times when I’m feeling poorly, I also find myself wanting to listen to classic George Carlin routines, especially ‘Carlin At Carnegie’, the HBO special which introduced me to his masterful work lo, those many decades ago on my mother’s elderly Sylvania console television with the poor vertical hold.  Apparently, I also get even wordier when I’m sick, which means it’s time to wrap things up and get to today’s soon-to-be-heavily-medicated query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wishes that somebody would deliver nice chicken soup and maybe some Thai food to my remote neck of the woods, but that ain’t happenin’ either, asking: What pop culture helps you to feel better when you’re miserable?
