Bruce Banner, Noam Chomsky

The print edition of USA Today has a picture of a computer-generated “Incredible Hulk” on its cover, with this story. The picture and accompanying caption on the online edition are different (it’s Wolverine!)

The Hulk’s caption in the print edition says something to the effect of: On the television show Bruce Banner’s alter ego was played by a human actor, but in the movie he will be a “pigment [sic] of computer imagination”.

I think this is about as close to Noam Chomsky’s famous nonsensical sentence, “Colorless green ideas sleep furiously”, as we’re ever likely to see in the wild.

    You had some nice points here. I done a research on the topic and got most peoples will agree with your blog. Lennon and McCartney had penned the song together and would later admit that, as with much of the band’s early work, they were simply trying to copy the style of previous rock and roll acts like Buddy Holly and The Everyly Brothers.
