I have seen this joke so many times, but I guess I started reading Jeff's blog too late to get it. Where did the 6-8 weeks joke start?

I'll tell you later. Ask me again in six to ei-- no, I can't do it. It's too lame, even for me. – Hilarious Comedy Pesto Oct 19 '09 at 19:40

@Steven Spielberg's Welbog: Only if you mention it at least one mor-- I see what you did there. Also, Steven Spielberg's Welbog is just a lazy ripoff of Kurosawa's epic Werubagu. Spielberg hasn't put out a half-decent SO user in years, culminating in that awful TheTXI he finished after Kubrick's death. That thing just doesn't end, y'know? Anyway, back to that crappy Welbog: the last straw with Spielberg's version was when they released the remastered anniversary edition and replaced all the lasers with walkie-talkies. Bruce Willis was so upset with it that he struck it from his IMDB page. – Hilarious Comedy Pesto Oct 19 '09 at 20:10
