*Mangler* hisses 'time to die' : A Reinterpretation

Postby Benito » Thu Mar 01, 2018 12:38 am

The classic log has often been interpreted ironically. Mangler saying, "time to die," is comically reversed when he and his group are surprisingly slaughtered by a group of nobodies.

However, I argue that Mangler was referencing the end of Blade Runner, where Roy Batty says to Deckard, "Time to die." Knowing his fate, Mangler offers a melancholy reflection on the events to follow.

This log is a tragedy, not a comedy. Discuss.

*Bores* gets an ornately worked belt with a white flame buckle from the corpse of Gruarth.

Always thought that was a great belt.

I don't know why you're trying to improve upon perfection.

This particular event comes up every couple of years when I chat with Cashel. Always worth a good laugh and joke to remember the old days.
