Yes.

Heh, clever.

Am I missing something here?

#4 ctaboir Thu, 28 Jan 2010 10:25:28
@Sorceror: Yes!
Sadly, me too.

Might be the offensive line that hits. I'm a bit clueless, too.

#6 TJR Thu, 28 Jan 2010 11:53:22
I don't get it, either. So far, my best guess is: in some sports, the ball may not hit the boundary line. In this case, the line hits back.

#7 Thvor Thu, 28 Jan 2010 13:24:23
As with others, I don't get it, and TJR's guess, while plausible, just isn't funny. At least, not as a one-panel gag. I may change my vote once someone explains it...

The line punches...

#9 TJR Thu, 28 Jan 2010 15:24:43
@fdfddfd2, Lol, thanks.

I interpret it as the wall line is hitting Dudley.

#11 Quint Thu, 28 Jan 2010 18:50:13
It would have worked better as "The line punches you!".

#12 Sorceror Thu, 28 Jan 2010 23:55:44
From the comic, it cannot be safely assumed that the line is unarmed. Quint's suggestion, though it may not actually be an in-game message, would is much, much clearer.

I still do not get it.

#14 Quint Fri, 29 Jan 2010 18:01:32
stevko: It's a punchline.

#15 mijae Fri, 29 Jan 2010 22:15:25
I'm sure even Dudley could manage to kill a punchline.

#16 Anonymous Fri, 29 Jan 2010 23:09:27
I wonder what NetHack would be like with this monster...

#16: Punchier.
