“They sure don’t make time machines like they’re going to!”

"They don’t make things like they used to” is an old saying. “They don’t make time machines like they’re going to very soon” was said by English actor, DJ and comedian Matt King and printed in the Evening News (Edinburgh, Scotland) on June 25, 2001.

“They don’t make time machines like they will” was posted on Twitter by 𝚂𝚊𝚛𝚊𝚁𝚘𝚜𝚒𝚗𝚜𝚔𝚢 on August 24, 2011. “They sure don’t make time machines like they’re going to!” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on December 9, 2015.


Wikipedia: Matt King (comedian)
Matt King (born 31 January 1968) is an English actor, DJ and comedian. He is most known for his role as Super Hans in the British sitcom Peep Show.

25 June 2001, Evening News (Edinburgh, Scotland), “Reviews: King’s night a crowning glory” by Sharon Cribbin, pg. 25:
Matt King, The Stand ****

IN front of one of the keenest and most enthusiastic audiences I have seen at The Stand for a long time, Matt King parades up and down, a master of all he surveys.

His material is wide ranging. Punchlines fly in from all angles, and are quite often totally unexpected. Dealing with everything from the problems with time travel - “They don’t make time machines like they’re going to very soon” - to why you will never see a deaf fish, King leaps from subject to subject with great abandon.
