Comics 1220-1223: Recursively Terrible

1220. No. F
1221. I like to imagine he tried really hard to actually have a "Who's the Doctor / Doctor Who" Abbot and Costello-style routine but ultimately failed, so he just tried to hint that, if you had only been there ten seconds before, you would have seen some wacky hijinks. F
1222. You should probably be worrying more, Randy. Most of what you do is terrible. F
1223. I actually kind of liked this one. B+

  1. 1223: Minecraft, check. Dwarf Fortress, check. Turning every in-game FSM into a turing-complete processor, check. Did I manage to include everything you like this time? Please keep reading and buying posters.

    1. Wrong!

      The height of comedy, and its subsequent hilarity, resides in reading dross from cunts who end sentences with prepositions.

  4. 1223 - Leave it to Randy to take a critically important issue of our times and find a way to go against the grain.

    POLL: If Randy ever found someone else out there with the same opinion as he, would he a) rush hastily back and alter his own opinion so he's unique again, b) hack the other guy's opinion, c) just post a comic in which he does b), or d) go into anaphylactic shock?

      They also go unnoticed during your concomittant nasogastric lavage?

      Average volume of ejaculate is 2 - 5 ml. One million turgid semen delivery spigots would produce 2 - 5 cubic meters. It's gonna take you 1,250 - 500 unnoticed "Springs" to fill a standard Olympic sized swimming pool!

    Replies
    1. 1225 is the withered paw feebly lifted from the bed. It rises, thick sloshing strands of congealed gravy extending from its atrophied clutch. The ashen clusters Randall brings into the world float forward as a dried husk does, empty and sheer in the wind. With rasping cough and cracking lips, Randall beholds his idea and, through all manner of blind arrogance, croaks out his proclamation on the vile aberration: "Juicy".

      Its the greatest intersection of sloth and gluttony that he could bother to muster. A graph joke that isn't a graph. A poster comic that isn't a poster. That isn't a comic or a joke.

      I wish I could say I was surprised, but we all know that within a year he's going to push a comic that is literally only a picture of Pi, and the same chorus of shrieking rapacious fanatics will cry out in onerous unison. "inb4 Randall Christ"

      Delete
    2. The internal consistency of your florid metaphor-cum-simile is atrocious.

      "sloshing strands of congealed gravy" and "ashen clusters....as a dried husk"

      For shame Sleeper, for shame!

      Delete
    3. Somewhere in there I lost the bit where it was Randall's wheezing, weaseling shamble of a body lying prostrate by a laptop coughing out ideas as dry as they are hollow, but I removed the transition for use instead in our grand homage: Of Rob and Men.

      Delete
    4. That "wheezing, weaseling" juxtaposition would have been a nice throwback to Mr. Joyce in celebration of Bloomsday. You let us down, man.

    2. Your attempt at a clever rephrasing of that popular idiom is rubbish!
      You have violated the cardinal rule of "Operator Precedence"! This is not a simple commutative and associative operation; the order in which the terms are considered does matter.
      Yer shite, ALT-F!
      Your mathematical flight of fancy does not produce the intended answer: “6” - a half dozen.
      Moron!
      Try this: "Six of one and 210 divided by 105 plus 4 of the other"
      To force addition to precede multiplication you need to employ parentheses ( ), square brackets [ ], curly brackets { }, or angle brackets < >. The use of corner brackets 「」, which denote the integer floor and ceiling functions, would be rather foolish in this context and wouldn't be appropriate.

    The Tutor just sent them this email:


    Subject: Copyright Infringement.

    Your use of the image of "King Mufasa", from "The Lion King", an animated feature film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios in your advertisement copy is in direct violation of both the Copyright and Trademark legal conventions adhered to by both the United States of America and Canada.
    This is, quite simply, theft of another's property.
    The Ten Commandments, iterated as they are in Exodus 20:1-17 and Deuteronomy 5:4–21, specifically state "Thou shall not steal".

    "Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death." Proverbs 10:12

    "He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,..." Matthew 19:18

    Theft today; is adultery, the bearing of false witness or even murder now in your future?

    I will pray for you.

    I am not sure if this is of any concern to you, but these christians are infringing Walt Disney Animation Studios copyright..

  13. What the fuck is 1226? Like, what the hell? A guy reads a book, a balloon lowers itself, says "internet" the man is so startled he drops the book, and the balloon floats away. Who the hell thought this was a good idea, that needed to be rendered in a visual medium. Such a person should be stopped from ever producing things in a visual medium ever again.

    1. It was referring to a thing from the news. I chuckled quietly and briefly.

      Delete
    2. Ok, while I admit I wasn't aware of this particular instance of it, I had figured it was supposed to be a server/router in the balloon as a result of some company project. That's not terribly surprising. What's the joke? Why is the guy startled? How does the balloon have the capacity for speech? WTF is happening here? Why am I to find this amusing? Normally the comics have something you could tell was supposed to be a joke, or point out something someone might mistake for interesting. This is just a series of pictures telling an uninteresting and stupid story that doesn't make sense.

      Ok, wait, if we consider the phrase found in one of those articles: "beam the internet to small farmers" and take it litterally, the last two panels of this comic could serve as an attempt at humor. The first two are pointless, and could be replaced with something referencing using the phrase. This would inject sense into the subsequent panels and result in something someone might mistake for humor.

    3. It's like all geek endeavours: deliberately complex, and you're "in" if you act like you appreciate it.

    4. Taken at its serious best, the joke revolves on the idea that having internet suddenly when you didn't before is startling.

    1. Someone is wrong on the Internet.

      It's not an original observation - angry, lonely dork refuses to rest while at least one person on the planet doesn't agree with him - but it was memorably executed. And sometimes I get involved in stupid arguments, think, "Oh fuck even Randall has a point to make to me today," and stop.

      ("Someone the Internet is wrong," would have made for a smoother crescendo. But I'm not going to go so far as to suggest that Randall has ever written flawlessly.)

    7. Since when have I ever been concerned about honesty - especially in its adverbial form?

    13. Or the music of Adam Ant for that matter.

    14. Upon learning that pheromones were integral to ant communication, I once thought snorting those fuckers would open me up to a new world of understanding. I was young and stupider. As youth often does, I imagined there were shortcuts to greatness. All I got from the experiment was permanently damaged sinuses and a tingling sensation in the brain.

      It returns sometimes. The tingle, I mean. Makes me happy and sad. Makes me want to do things. Makes me forget what I do. I don't know. I think there are places ants should never go.
