Faux Outrage

Literally the most important blog in the universe since 2010.

Without Penny, Inspector Gadget would not have solved one crime.  Not one.  The Inspector could have had all of the Go-Go Gadgets in the world — even those godforsaken insta-rollerskates — but without the never-appreciated Penny, Dr. Claw and M.A.D. agents would have certainly controlled the universe (or whatever it was they were going for).

(Deep thought: Did Penny represent the Women’s Suffrage movement?  Was Dr. Klaw Woodrow Wilson?  Was Brain the canine Susan B. Anthony?  I think so.)

I wanted to open up with something positive about the penny genre because what follows is a pretty thorough take-down of our copper (and bronze!) buddies.  It is a pitch-perfect example of faux outrage, and I would like to share it with the world, even if much of the world has already seen it.
