Some other members have expressed the opinion that they don't normally take much notice of this type of thing, but this case is an interesting one if
nothing else. So okay, if we suspend any disbelief that a cartoon could hold a warning of a coming event, it's fair enough to analyze it.
A cartoon is an interesting medium to use for the simple fact that nothing is in it by chance. Everything there had to be planned, then drawn in. That
makes me wonder how they settled on the time to be shown on the clock face. True, they could have picked any time, but for now I'm just following
along with the original premise.
Also, if you look at the video, Homer says "Dinnertime," meaning it's evening. Assuming the clock hands haven't been jolted out of their correct time,
in what regions of the US is it still daylight at almost 6 pm on Nov 6? The shadows under his hammock (which had to be drawn in) clearly show the
sun's still not too low.
It could only be in the southern states. Just for example, sunset in New Orleans today is at 6:11 pm, and in Cape Canaveral at 6:36, whereas even in
San Diego it gets dark at 5:55 today. (Obviously on Saturday these sunset times will be a few minutes sooner.)
Another thing that I noticed right away, but didn't comment on before because I had to read the thread first: why did the artist/s mess up the
hatching on the clock face between the 9 and 10 as I've arrowed in the image?
Why is the hatching in this section -- and nowhere else -- lacking some of the white sections, so that the black sections are longer? Was this simply
a "mistake" that no-one picked up, or was it done for a reason?
Yep, this sort of thing sure is interesting...
