In other words, the reviewer seems to be stating, “I am a fan, but not a typical fan, because then I must be a loser.” I can’t be the only one who finds it odd that a person would admit to being a member of a community (an inclusive one at that, hence “Stooges fans only trust other Stooges fans”) before immediately, and bitterly undercutting that very same group of people to which he’s ascribed himself, can I?
