This comic takes place in the early hours of the morning of January 1st, 2016. Cueball, wiring in through the roof, asks White-Hat if he wants to feel old. In any case, he has not been asleep long and is 'acutely aware'. He is told then that:

  • Night at the Museum and Cars, two children's films of 2016 - are 10 years old this year.
  • The Wii is a game console released in November 2006, is also 10, as is Hips Don't Lie a song by Shakira that remains inescapable even a decade after its release.
  • Twister Independence Day and The Rock are all films of 1996. The Rock may also refer to Dwayne Johnson, who made his debut in wrestling that year.
  • Wonderwall is a song by the band Oasis which reached #8 on the Billboard chart. (although was released in 1995, not 1996).
