Sorry that this one is so obscure, but I found it funny...

Predictable, but I'll give it a 'fair' just for symmetry (even though Rodney will never own the amulet in his tower).

My vote pending any further lack of symmetry...

The Wizard of Yendor hears Neiman and Marcus arguing.
The Wizard of Yendor hears the chime of a cash register.
A voice booms out: "So thou thoughtst thou couldst kill me!"
You hear a faint typing noise.
You feel worried about your warhorse.
You feel hungry.

/me boggles at how symmetry in the rankings became more important than actually fairly rating the comic...

ais523: Well, the people are here because they prefer pretty colors, right?

Symmetry seems to be come people's attempt at saying "meh". Maybe we should just come out say it, instead.

#7 DrSunglass Thu, 21 May 2009 07:53:15
Meh.

Also, I changed my vote to disrupt the symmetry. So there.

TJR, explain please?

Voting myself for symmetry. Symmetry is serious business!

Anyway, creator commentary: you may notice the caption here, and wonder what I'm talking about. This was originally a whole different comic, one in my as-of-yet unpublished "NetHack Crossovers" series, involving Dudley as a neutral female human Ranger and a Master Assassin named Asha who zapped Dudley with a wand of death and then said "Well, take that, Human Anomaly." But I eventually deemed it TOO obscure, and edited it into what you see now. But I forgot to change the caption.

And if you actually get why I found the original idea so funny or what it's referencing, congratulations.

Iji!

"An"?It should be "The".

G. Where's your symmetry now?!

Not making symmetry by voting M. E.
