The true origin of WHITE DOT (Film at 11)

I have discovered something absolutely amazing! The origin of WHITE DOT! We all thought it just arose in season 13…

BUT…

It predates season 13. In fact, it goes back many years when it was invoked by none other than Crow!


Crow: Oh, DOT. I’ve always wanted to go there.

Do you see it? Do you see? Can you comprehend? WHITE DOT is the origin of DEADLY MANTIS!

And as we all know, “in the kingdom of the living, there is no more fearsome creature than the praying mantis.”

Or is that just where White Dot’s family is from?

An early emigrant (let’s say its name was “White” as well) settled down in a village somewhere that already had a White living there. As was the convention when there was a chance of confusion, the villagers picked some characteristic to distinguish the newbie, so referring to it as “White of Dot”. White of Dot’s children were also said to be “of Dot”, that became habit, and somewhere over the centuries the “of” was dropped.

So you’re saying White Dot has penguins on it.

White Dot has always been here, we’re just finally evolving enough to perceive it.

I’m saying that White Dot’s origins are much earlier and shrouded in mystery. Perhaps as @PitFriend has said, it’s that we’re now prepared for it.

Amazing find. I’m starting to think we need some kind of WHITE DOT SMILES UPON YOU badge for these sorts of scholarly discoveries.

White Dot has been hiding in plain sight for years. Sneaky!

Of all the credits that Harold P. Warren made up for Manos, you’d THINK that he would given legitimate props to White Dot for this cameo appearance.

But then again, I think I can understand why White Dot would want to be uncredited there.

Lots of slow panning across photos of White Dot’s sepia ancestors?

Supplemented by letters and other documents about how obtuse everyone was. Or is that oblong?

Love the idea. However, I feel there is only one director visionary enough to do such a venture justice:

ABSOLUTELY

Between Crow T. Robot’s Bram Stoker’s The Civil War and Let’s Talk Women!, the bot is a born documentarian.

Too bad he wants to be the creator of special effects laden summer tentpole Hollywood blockbusters like Earth vs. Soup.

We wish that he could find a way to bridge high-culture AND pop-culture like the You Don’t Know Jack games, but… alas.
