I think most of you know by now. The Professor, is a blatant Doctor Who spoof.
But what you might not know is that they aren't just spoofing one doctor but a good handful of them.
Long striped scarf -- clearly Tom Baker's (the fourth doctor)
Tennis shoes -- could refer to David Tennant (ten) or Peter Davison (five) as the both wore tennis shoes
Bow tie -- while plenty of Doctors have worn the tie, it's safe to say Matt Smith (eleven) made it an icon
I thought to myself: "Cool. They picked some icons, slapped them on a dog, and called it good. Groovy."
But then I was passing by this morning and saw this.
And you know what that means.
It means celery.
Peri : "Doctor, why do you wear a stick of celery in your lapel?"
The Doctor : "Does it offend you?"
Peri : "No, just curious."
The Doctor : "Safety precaution. I'm allergic to certain gases in the praxis range of the spectrum."
Peri : "Well how does the celery help?"
The Doctor : "If the gas is present, the celery turns purple."
Peri : "And then what do you do?"
The Doctor : "I eat the celery. If nothing else I'm sure it's good for my teeth."
-- "The Caves of Androzani"
Peter Davison (the fifth doctor) my personal favorite classic doctor has been payed homage to.
I am happy.
