All Comics Ever Written: A Spiritual Successor

It was recently brought to my attention that a fellow who isn't Jon "Jon 'History's Greatest Monster' Levi" Levi is continuing our good work and reviewing comics over at a blog called "XKCD Isn't Funny." This guy followed me on Twitter a while ago and mentioned XKCD and I thought maybe he was one of you cuddlefish, but nope! He's come into this world pure as the driven snow.

Anyway, he seems to actually reliably update, so maybe you should go there, if you're into that sort of thing.

117 comments:

  1. Maybe you should reliably fuck off?
    I hate change! I, however, embrace progress. Qwerty ain't I?
    And driven snow is not pure! It's laced with Yankee-born particulate matter and assorted UAVs.

    4. There is probably a very good reason for that Rob - and it is good that you do not do what you should do. You see, the actions you think you should do are nasty. The impetus for these actions has been imparted upon your pure-as-the-driven-snow psyche by a heartless and uncaring culture. What you actually do is far, far better, if a tad out-of-the ordinary and expected of a manly man of your stature.

  2. The Tutor's sex function maps elements from my domain X to his codomain Y. The Tutor considers this insufferable process to be quite adequate. And indeed it is for him - it's an injective non-surjective function from his perspective - what's not to love?
    In The Tutor's sex function every physical point, y, in his Y codomain will map to at least one point, x, in my X domain. At a specific anatomical location, however, The Tutor's sex function maps two elements of my X erogenous zone domain to a single element, y, of his Y erogenous zone codomain. It is a non-injective surjective function from my perspective, and as a consequence, it sucks. I prefer an injective surjective sex function which is bidirectional.

  3. "Should Orwell have been stripped of his citizenship in the 1930's on his return from Spain after fighting for a Communist brigade?"

    Yes, but not for his ill-fated choice of comrades or cause, but for having the utter conceit of allowing himself to be shot in his very British of necks.

    Orwell was shot because he was considerably taller than the swarthy Spanish fighters and his head protruded out of the trench. You would have thought the man could have crouched a bit; those British national values of the 'Stiff Upper Lip' and 'Keep Calm and Carry On' will get ya every time!

    Innit?

    Now, 'Hygge', the national value of Denmark, is a much better fundamental aspect of culture to embrace if one should find one's self fighting Fascists with a bunch of pygmies. It is often translated as "cosiness", but that is only part of its meaning. Its essence embodies more: "a sense of cosy, friendly contentment producing eudaimonia".

    'Stiff Upper Eye-lid' and 'Keep Down and Cosy On'.

    Yes?
    And eudaimonia? Who wouldn't want a shite-load of that?

    And if that wasn't bad enough, he deserves a thorough gibbeting and vigorous re-arseholing with a claw hammer for inflicting upon The Queen's such lexical twaddle as 'Thoughtpolice', 'Big Brother', 'Doublethink' and 'Room 101′. Despite his connection to my homeland, Myanmar, the man's a filthy Imperialist tosser!

    Me: "Really? So you're a Communist too then?
    You must know that only pure Marxism, if applied on a global basis, would provide the greatest good for the greatest number of people, right?"

    The Customer: "I AM NOT A COMMUNIST!"

    Me: "You're not? Well I suppose you must support the termination of all mentally and physically disabled people in The Canadas, and elsewhere, in order to free funds which could be better spent eliminating the needless daily deaths, from wholly preventable causes, of upwards of 20,000 otherwise mentally and physically sound children elsewhere on the planet?"

    The Customer: "Are you insane?"

    Me: "Possibly, but I'm certainly not a hypocrite."

    The Customer: "ARE YOU CALLING ME A HYPOCRITE?"

    Me: "No. Why? Do you feel like one now?"

    The Customer: "Let me speak to your manager!"

    This store is operated under Marxist principles - we are all of equal status in terms of authority. Would you like to speak to myself and my comrades in the back, together?"

    Me: "Another 'de haut en bas' prognostication from above?"

    The Tutor: "Yes. If I might write something so obtuse and abstract that it could not be understood or at least, falsified, then I am not writing anything of import. I stake my reputation on being true to the world as it is. My great fear of intellectuals is a result of their propensity for abstraction and deracination – abstraction in their thinking and deracination in their lives."

    Me: "Nonsense! Did you not deracinate me from Myanmar and a life of poverty and is your white-boy sexy-talk not certainly an abstraction?"

    The Tutor: "Your response appears to be full of the empty abstraction referred to above, and without any intellectual content. And don't bother pointing out that my response doesn't have much of the latter either."

    Me: "You needn't worry that I might point out anything. Phrasal verbs are an abomination unto the lesser known deities - especially those ending in a preposition(the verbs, not the deities).
    Employing as you have, and then with certain egregious malice of intent actually concluding, a horrid phrasal verb with a vile preposition is something up with which Sir Winston and I will not put. As for the quantity and quality of the latter, to which you referred earlier, I would never be so presumptuous to comment - I knows me my place, I does. As to the former, to which you do not refer in the above, however, our word salads are awash in it. But as far as empty abstraction goes, it's some of the best! Innit?"

  6. The Tutor: "I thought I might engage in Social Media, you know; Facebook and Twitter."

    Me: "Good luck."

    The Tutor: "I thought I might list in the, 'My Favourite Books' category: Finnegan's Wake, Beowulf, Less Than Zero, Don Quixote.....you know, those sorts of tomes."

    Me: "You forgot Green Eggs And Ham and Lolita - that smacks of all sorts of quirky if you ask me.
    And 'Finnegan's Wake' - what the fuck?
    You have either never read it, or if you have, you certainly did not fucking understand it. Well fuck me from behind with a Greengrocer's apostrophe, but you are a piece of work."

    The Tutor: "Greengrocers' apostrophe?"

  7. The Tutor writes: 'The Canadas of the era of the Third Reich in Germany was itself not immune to Nazi-esque anti-Semitism; the government at the time did not welcome to any extent Jewish post-war immigration, and, until the mid 1940s, many universities had quotas on Jewish students who could be admitted to certain faculties.'

    Fair enough, and accurate in as much as that which is revealed, but The Tutor seems to have forgotten to mention that the Canadian government of the time did not welcome pre or peri-war Jewish immigration either, resulting in the subsequent deaths of hundreds, possibly thousands, who were turned away and forced to return to Europe.
    I know why though. Why The Tutor didn't mention it I mean, not why the Canadian government were such bastards - it couldn't help itself, it being full of Christo-fascist, northern-European Caucasoid cunts and all. The Tutor was writing for the erudition of the average vile Canadian; unlettered, innumerate and ignorant as they are. It does not bode well for a society populated with deeply stupid people to harbour this thorny realisation in their inherent righteousness as a culture to be revealed as fucking hypocrites. It is not prudent to inform the deeply stupid that underneath the civilised façade of the culture they embrace they are all monsters and only a-bit-of-strategically-placed-propaganda-piece away from perpetrating unspeakable genocide if the government requires it.

  9. The Tutor: "How 'bout this then: 'When you sponsor a girl like ALT-F, you’ll be doing more than just putting food on her table and a roof over her head. If just one in every four Americans gave only one single dollar once a week - that's less than the cost of a single cup of so-so coffee from a third-rate non-branded coffee outlet per week - to folks like ALT-F a lot could be accomplished. No one, least of all ALT-F, should ever have to go to bed hungry.' What do you think?"

    Me: "That would guarantee me and my kinfolk a weekly income of about 80 million dollars - that's a little in excess of 4 billion dollars a year. That kind of money buys a lot in my home village you know.
    Enough dog haunch and cassava tubers to stretch from here to Neptune transported and placed there by single-use solid-gold-gilded SpaceX shuttles each of which is fuelled by burning bank notes."

    The Tutor: "Yeah, that does seem a bit excessive doesn't it?"

  10. Anyway, here's a critique of XKCD #1364 by Some Cunt
    LIKE I'M FUCKED
    XKCD #1364
    His recurrent motif of the juxtaposition of obscure words - what've, thesis, god, parents, et cetera - and his use of hyperbolic, prolix and misspelt adjectives - ton(nes) of - reveals nowt but the callousness, vulgarity and philistinism that is the creative world of XKCD of late. It is a despairing crèche of sentence dialogue rife with pitiless realism designed as a mirror of satire raised in society's glare to catch the Caliban, nay the Sycorax herself, of modern day verb-object-subject syntactic structuring. A visitation from god herself alighted our hero. A visitation not altogether unlike the biblical plague of toads. Like as if a math thesis couldn't be explained to a five year old. I mean, really? And if this wasn't bad enough, the parents of this five-year-old-like dullard recently died in a fiery car wreck - the thesis writer is very insensitive.

  15. Aquarians, is your persona some weird kind of performance art? because it's honestly not very good. not so much intriguingly weird as just sort of tedious.

It is therefore fortuitous that my self-loathing is sufficiently developed enough to not only accommodate your disapprobation, but to also revel in it.

    7. One constant can't be "inversely proportional" to another. The phrase implies a relationship between two changing values. Or are you saying as his ego becomes more massive his intelligence shrinks?

    Fair enough, my friend, but you failed to recognise Rob's typical slothful and otiose typographical error. Although he pixellated deluding he actually meant to type, denuding. With this new word, the sentence is less derisory, yes?
    Also, your estimation of the relationship between Rob's ego and his intellect as inversely proportioned was clever - the retards 'round here are famous for confusing a transitive verb form of a noun with the adjectival form. Nevertheless, I feel I must take umbrage at your choice of the prefix, in- to produce the derivative inversely. I am a student of prefixion and Rob deserves none - with the possible exception of per- in this case.
    To wit:
    "Rob's massive ego is versely proportioned to his intellect."

    Firstly, who the fuck is Fred Armison? And why should I care to know?

    Thirdly, it's who loves assrape, not that loves assrape. And it can hardly be called rape if the rejuvenating colonic irrigation is requested, now can it? No it cannot. Yes means fucking yes! Okay?

    1. You are assuming that said assrape is being applied to you. Maybe our dear anonymous is suggesting you like to watch.

    2. Dearest Ms. Kitten,
      I do not think my assumption was/is unwarranted. Granted, my comprehension of the unlettered morass to which I find myself subjected when I alight here is suspect so you might be correct.
      I do like to watch - like Chauncey Gardener(1).

      (1) Seems to be spelt Gardiner, Gardener or Gardner depending on where you look.
