In case you weren’t already aware of it, there is an actual Doctor Who comic where the entire plot revolves around Rory Williams checking his email on the TARDIS and accidentally making all spam messages and malware lurking in the depths come to life. And yes, it’s every bit as hilarious and adorable as that premise sounds.

One of the best gags? A parody of Clippy, the Microsoft Office Assistant, in the form of a “floating cartoon stapler.”
