This is the first of a series of articles from New York Comic Con 2011.
Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick brought plenty of laughs and stories about oil to Friday’s “Venture Brothers” panel at the New York Comic Con. The panel consisted of questions culled from emails that were only “slightly stupid.”
The true definition of a “rusty venture” came up with Doc saying Brock was closest to the truth. Jackson, on the other hand, believes it involves a barrel. It’s hard to believe it and Shallow Gravy (Hank’s band) weren’t in the first draft of the “Home School Prom” episode. When asked which character’s they’d like to get a “rusty venture” from Jackson answered Shore Leave and Doc chose Gary. However, the best was yet to come.
Doc Hammer revealed his favorite pastime is imputing phrases that raise his dander into his pink phone. And there are quite a few of them. So, without further ado, here are the 22 phrases you don’t say to Doc Hammer:
- Hot mess.
- Awesome sauce.
- In your face. (Or any other “Dorrito talk”)
- Rocking out.
- It is what it is.
- Sick Puppy.
- Big time.
- Take it to the next level.
- Get your _____ on.
- Go big or go home.
- Wow factory.
- Pure win.
- Bring you’re A game.
- Meh. (Added during the panel)
The list is an ongoing work in progress. Watch “The Venture Brothers” on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.
