wow, you ruined a good strip with a newt joke.

#2 TobyBartels Tue, 15 Sep 2009 02:52:02
Despite the newt joke, it's still a good strip.

(It could have been excellent …)

#3 Anonymous Tue, 15 Sep 2009 04:06:24
What number is this in your comic streak? 4th? 5th?

#4 mijae Tue, 15 Sep 2009 07:16:08
E just for the nifty green-text effect.

#5 Quint Tue, 15 Sep 2009 16:14:22
I'm voting this Excellent so we have 8 E. Someone please vote this poor so we can have 1 2 3 5 8 (Fib series).

#6 Factorial Tue, 15 Sep 2009 17:27:52
There you go.

Newt jokes are terrible.

(also, I really don't think Morpheus's ship was ever... submerged. And I don't consider the 2nd and 3rd movies canon.)

#7 ctaboir Tue, 15 Sep 2009 20:57:20
well, let all ask ourselves what nethack normality is. (or past the blue pill in nethack) For this very one, I do not know what could have been better for the last panel than a newt joke...

#8 xCheckPoint Tue, 15 Sep 2009 21:32:17
Considering the last few comics it could have ended in a grid bug joke. G from me, I like newts, and I like {Mat|Neth}rix. Fibonacci's gone anyway.

#9 Quint Wed, 16 Sep 2009 02:58:13
Darnit, someone messed up the ratings and now it's 13368.

>well, let all ask ourselves what nethack normality is

For Dudley, you mean?

OK, very well.

#11 TJR Thu, 17 Sep 2009 01:12:51
I just so loved the green text screen. And the inevitable newt - c'est à boire.

@TJR: qu'il nous faut?

#13 Sorceror Fri, 18 Sep 2009 02:13:58
Why do people always have to screw with the votes when we hit an awesome sequence?

#14 Anonymous Fri, 18 Sep 2009 09:21:09
Why do people bother more about the votes than about the comics?

#15 TJR Fri, 18 Sep 2009 11:55:54
@#14: Probably because anybody can vote, but few people can make excellent comics.

#16 slowpoke Fri, 18 Sep 2009 15:29:17
TJR and ctaboir, you are two good guys, according to Babelfish at least.

#17 ctaboir Fri, 18 Sep 2009 16:19:52
Thanks Slowpoke! And if you are speaking about our french exchanges, you are also a good guy if you share our views on this... Note, I now have to admit that ctaboir is a french phonetic approximative translation of "c'est à boire"

#18 slowpoke Fri, 18 Sep 2009 19:00:47
More specifically, I was speaking of a French song I ran into while researching your exchange.

#19 Slandor Fri, 18 Sep 2009 19:15:23
Ah, I just realized why it's "7aboir" sometimes.

#20 Newtkiller Fri, 18 Sep 2009 19:43:48
Yup, french here too. I can't believe no one on the original site had thought of my name before...
besides, c'est à boire qu'il nous faut is a bad traduction from "nunc es bibendum" now it is the time too drink

#21 ctaboir Fri, 18 Sep 2009 20:26:09
LOL ;-)
(or MDR as we are now all speaking french...)
Well, 7aboir is my "official" nick, but is however translated to ctaboir for the many systems (like in here) that are forbidding numerical char as first char of an ID... Kind of thing that I've discovered too late after my name was well established (err.. at least for a small drunk team...).
Well, slowpoke, most probably the french song you ran across is the one that inspired my nick... (and it's always time to drink) (and not water).

#22 slowpoke Mon, 21 Sep 2009 15:31:40
Ah, the first time someone has explained a French pun to me. C'est = sept, when something afterward causes the 't' to be pronounced. I took French in elementary school but never became fluent, and this kind of thing flies by me. Thanks!

Newtkiller, you're saying your name is a French joke too? Please explain, I don't get it.

Nah, just saying that : one i'm french (me, the real personn behind the screen)
And two, i couldn't believe that after 1y1/2 of dudley's dungeon (on first website) no one ha thought of that nickame before...
