Like plant corpses taste delicious to Monks.

So that makes the ants, what … carnivorous monks? adepts of anti-Dudleyism? I don't know.

Too long for such a simple inversion joke. Also, not sure about telepathic ants ... certainly not sure about why all the ants left except one.

#3 Factorial Mon, 26 Oct 2009 02:04:12
They're not necessarily telepathic- the comic's just showing everything instead of just what Dudley sees. Also, probably the group was just separated and came at Duds from different directions.

I lol'd anyway. Filler panels are ok as long as there's no dialogue, so it wasn't too long.

It made me laugh, so I guess I'll vote G.

EDIT: I can't log in to NAO! On the player list it doesn't have my name. Help?

Lol.

#6 Thvor Mon, 26 Oct 2009 11:34:19
I agree, there's no reason for the other ants to leave; the filler panels just prolong the joke build-up unnecessarily, thus hurting the joke itself. Which isn't that good to start with.

#7 Sorceror Mon, 26 Oct 2009 11:45:14
The ants are clearly telepathic and do not exhibit typical ant-like behaviour as evidenced by the bible of ant farming - Maxis's SimAnt.

#8 Slandor Mon, 26 Oct 2009 16:09:22
G. I kind of like the ant nervously looking from side to side, waiting for all its friends to leave. And the punchline.

#9 minmay Mon, 26 Oct 2009 18:12:23
Slandor got the real joke here. It's normal to eat a corpse, but it's pretty embarrassing to be seen eating Dudley's corpse.

#10 xCheckPoint Mon, 26 Oct 2009 20:38:45
Okay, with that background I need to upvote...

The only slight nitpick is one from the writing classes I've taken: the point of view shifts at some point from Dudley as second-person to the ant being second-person.
