Metapost: Comedic COTW!

Guys, your comments of the week are coming shortly, but first: You may remember back when I quit my job that in addition to insanely declaring that I would write a book I also insanely declared that I would be doing live comedy shenanigans? Well, it’s true, I am doing them! I will be part of a couple of shows in the Baltimore area in the next few weeks. Here are the details! Come, it will be funny, promise!

And now, your comment of the week:

“‘It’s a more economical way of getting dressed in the morning?’ queried the Krakthor, shifting its squat, bulbous features underneath the hideous man-disguise so that the head-front would resemble human curiosity.” –bunivasal

And the runners up! Very funny!

“So help me, at first I thought the joke was that Teresa Mae’s husband was having a baby himself, given his position. I mean, it’d probably be best if his feet were in stirrups, but those require precious iron to manufacture.” –Spyglass

“And speaking of experiments that didn’t work, how about we agree that we’re both still heterosexual?” –Artist formerly known as Ben

“Jughead’s got that ‘letter to the editor’ face going on.” –sporknpork

“My day, as I had planned it: focus on some upcoming deadlines at work; enjoy some music on the commute home; spend some time with the kids; get my news fix watching the convention. My day as it is actually going to happen: dwell obsessively on the fact that Jamaal’s pants are hanging open.” –Nekrotzar

“Then again, maybe her junior high picture reminds her of a happier time in her life, before she gave birth to The Omen.” –Digger

“Chip was probably asking what band it is, but whatever. ‘This is called an audio recording, son. We used to use them to duplicate sound.’” –Doctor Handsome

“‘Don’t cut your hair like Moe Howard, dear,’ is what Mrs. Worth should be saying to Dawn instead of prattling on and on about the hospital.” –Baka Gaijin

Thanks to all who put some cash into my tip jar! And this is where we’d thank our advertisers — if we had any this week. To find out more about how you could be thanked in this spot, and more about sponsoring this site’s RSS feed, click here.

    Also, the refreshment stands only sold gum (and at 4 out of 5 places it was sugarless). And to crown it all, they really put the bite on you for admission. But on the plus side, you were allowed to bring your canines.

    Someone really should put up a plaque at that site.

    The Amazing Spider-Man: I dunno, Clown-9. Those clowns seem gray to me. You sure you’re going to blend in? Also: worst clowns ever, after Clown-9.

    Apt. 3-G: Sure hope Ari’s a medical doctor, because Greg’s going to need a neck brace if he keeps spinning around like that. Boy, Hollywood stars sure are hungry these days.

    Judge Parker: See, Avery knew what he was talking about. That field looked like a back lot in Burbank. He wants to hook Bea up with his medical marijuana connections, if his hosts would just quit being paranoid freaks.

    Mark Trail: Two talking geese and a talking house. Elrod’s back on the sauce.

    Mary Worth: Why do I think we’re about to see more amputees than ten Funky Winkerbeans put together?

    Moose and Molly: Jesus, Weber, it’s after Labor Day. Pool jokes, like white, go out of season.

    @Trouty Mouth (y#18): The thing that amuses me about older strips like Hi & Lois, heck even newer strips like Zits that I’m guessing are done by older artists, is that they are firmly stuck in the idea that the parents are a product of the 60s when they are obviously much younger.

    I have to admit that’s one of the things I love about Sally Forth. All of the childhood and teen references of Ted and Sally are the same as my own.

    @Nehemiah Scudder (#18):

    Click the link; the identical comment has been posted on thousands of comment threads, in an apparent attempt to drive up the stupid Mayan Apocalypse site’s Google rank.

    The spambot strategy du jour is to slip the spam filter by simulating a real comment; most go something like this:

    1. Say something vaguely complimentary, e.g., “Hey man, great article” (why is it always “article” with these assholes?)

    2. Ask a reasonable-sounding question, e.g., “What blogging software do you use?” or, most irritatingly, “Do you have a problem with spammers?”

    The content of the post is just camouflage to keep the spam filter (and me) from deleting it, although good luck with the latter. The goal is to ride along on a blog that a) updates daily and b) gets a lot of traffic — both of which drive up the Google rank of the URL embedded in the comment.

    An emerging trend is the cryptic personal message: “Hey, is that you Marsha? Email me!”

    Although with any lucky they’re real clowns, fed up with the bullshit and ready to subject both Clod-9 and Spiderbore to some real clown treachery. (If clowns destroy Clown-9, would that scene be safe for Baka Gaijin?)

    @pastordan, no friend of the apostrophe (#57): I am a comic addict, I admit. *hangs head*

    //I kinda am, no joke. I have a ridiculous number of webcomics bookmarked. And most of them have great writers and amazing artists, and are attentive to their fans, which I think is a large part of the reason why I get so cross with these dudes who’ve reached the level of getting regular pay for their work and now phone it in and abuse their readers’ patience.

    Luann: First off, even the worst artist in the world should be able to make kittens look better than B-wad. Second, you’re going to “save” Luann from what, exactly? Hurt feelings? A platonic relationship? It’s not like she can get pregnant through the mail (I think). Whatever you do, you know she’ll whine and blame you, so why bother? Third, you’re going to pass up a chance to adopt a kitten for this? You do realize that a kitten is the anti-Luann? Smart, playful, friendly and when full-grown able to catch mice? They’re even more reasonable than Toni, who should let Luann make her own mistakes. Do yourself a favor, Piggyface. Wave bye-bye to Toni Daytona. Adopt a kitten. Play your cards right and you might even adopt two of them. With luck you’ll impress some woman who’s a lot less self-absorbed than Toni. (Okay, it will be your luck, not hers, but nothing’s perfect.)

    Here’s a fun little fact the censors at Comics Kingdom will censor ‘homo’. It doesn’t matter what the word is used for it will be automatically censored. I find this out today when I posted a comment on today’s Gil Thorp and it censored the word and then I posted the word homophone and that got censored.

    Spiderman-I can understand why Spiderman is having trouble finding Clown-9. I’m mean look at all those clowns. They all look alike. I wish clowns would change their looks so no two clowns look alike.

    @EVERYBODY (#89): Hi, everybody. My name is Fran, but I use an alias, Chaze, on a comics website because I am so addicted to reading comics of every type. Yes, I am a comics addict.

    I’ve been this way for 55 years. I’ve learned to not only live with my addiction, but to embrace it and cherish it. Still, at times, I worry about why I obsess over things like why Greg’s head changes shape in A3G more than I do important things…like say…my diet or my health.
