Internet Joke Takes Five Years To Finish

Internet Joke Takes Five Years To Finish

Talk about hanging on a punchline. In May 2009, Twitter user @DrFNFurter started a joke, one that wasn’t completed until May 2014.

In keeping with their username, it was a Rocky Horror Show gag. You know. Time warps, and all.

‘Rocky Horror’ Fan Time Warps 5 Years to Complete a Tweet [Mashable]


  • Tim Curry was great in Rocky Horror but truely came into his own in Red Alert

      • I kept reading this as I.T and kept trying to figure out when Tim Curry stared as an IT technician……

      • YES!

        Pennywise was clearly his best role. So much so that you can’t think of anyone else who could’ve played it.

      • Has there been a role he’s never truly owned? 🙂

        Right down to…

        *KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK* “VILDERNESS GIRRRRRRLS!” in Loaded Weapon 1 lol

        • Tim Curry in Home Alone 2 stole the damn movie, and he was the bad guy.
          Oh wait, he’s kind of the bad guy in a lot of things.
          Oh wait, he’s kind of stolen the movie in a lot of things.

          • He was Hexxus in Fern Gully, The Dark Lord in Legend and Pennywise in IT. He’s quite possibly the most terrifying human being alive.

          • Pretty sure he auditioned for the voice of Joker in the Batman animated series but they deemed him too scary for the role.

  • Sorry, not a Rocky Horror Picture Show fan, so the punchline is lost on me. Does it make a difference if the last line was delivered in 2013 or 2015?

    • The point is there was a long pause. Like in the movie. That’s the entire joke.

      • Ta! I kinda got it, in the way that when you explain a joke it’s not so funny any more.

  • Would have been even better if it was at 4:11PM. Then again, I’d be hard pressed to even remember I was doing the joke the day after I started it.
