Sheldon Cooper's newest disturbing obsession

"Leonard, we're going to be rich!" (As weavers!?)

I am a fan of the Big Bang Theory. I caught this old episode from season 1 recently and I was pretty sure that a weaver somewhere would have made sure it showed up on YouTube. Korean subtitles or not, this clip is hilarious... if you're a weaver anyway.


Luminous fish are as good a way as any to find your way to weaving.

I think this loom is a Schacht Mighty Wolf. Any other votes?

  1. that's totally right! it is a Schacht Mighty Wolf!

    If I didn't have to work, I would probably have times like that. :)

  2. My husband watched this too. He said the Korean subtitles are really funny, too! In the subtitles of the scene about "luminous" fish leading to a "loom" the subtitles explain that this is a pun in English. The loom does look like a mighty wolf--you can see the Schacht emblem on the end. I think anyone who has gotten into the zone with an art project of any kind can relate. Thank you for sharing. Loved it!

  3. I did actually think later that it could be construed as not-funny... since it clearly picked weaving as an esoteric and laughable activity... which clearly it is NOT! I just loved finding a Mighty Wolf on a mainstream TV show.
