Dennis Miller and Captain America

American Comedian



Dennis Miller

Namor's Walking Stick

I was listening to the Dennis Miller radio program yesterday (Jan 29, 2008) and he had a call from a listener who asked if he had heard about the "new" Captain America. This exchange happened between Miller, his on-air sidekick "Salman" David S. Weiss, and the caller:


Matt: You're always name-checking Marvel comics, and I wondered if you knew about the new Captain America who is debuting tomorrow?

DM: No. Tell me, tell me.

Matt: Well, as you may or may not know, the original Captain America was shot and killed last year...

DM: Hmm

Matt: ...by his brain-washed girlfriend.

Sal: I thought it was a gang-shooting.

DM: That's why I don't want... I don't read comics anymore. Just the sentence is so saddening to me, 'Captain America was shot by his girlfriend.'

Matt: So his old teen partner from World War Two , Bucky...

DM: Yeah...

Matt: ...gonna be the new Captain America.

DM: I thought Bucky was killed by the Red Skull years ago.

Matt: Well, so everybody thought, but actually, when Cap plunged into the artic at the end of World War Two...

Sal: Yeah, I remember that...

Matt: ...Bucky did as well, was later kidnapped and brain-washed by the Russians to become an assassin.

Sal: Like the Manchurian Candidate...

Matt: But now he got his old memories back...

Sal: Uh huh

Matt: He's gonna be the new Captain America...

DM: Well, alright, that rolls out tomorrow. I don't know, I can't partake, it's such a part of my childhood, I used to love back then, uh, Cap would team with Namor periodically, and uh...

Sal: Namor was so cranky...

DM: Eh, well, Namor had wrinkled skin, he was underwater all day long, how many days can you turn an eel into a walking stick before it gets boring?
