Title

  • The Lizard People.

Summary

  • "This graphic attempted to play off the "buddy movie" trope of two people working together to accomplish an unbelievable mission. However, it didn't really work and ultimately came across as trying too hard. This is one of the least successful CPSC safety meme graphics and was only run a few times in 2018."--Description from creator, Joseph Galbo.

  • -  Transcription of text from image: "When you're trying to hack the Gibson to keep the lizard people from breaking through to the surface world as your wise-cracking partner looks on and heckles you don't have time to worry about safety.
