I like this one, for some reason.

It's probably too soon for this particular meta-joke, but there haven't been many strips submitted by people other than me, so this is what you get.

So submit more strips!

I'm not sure I get the joke here. The dwarf pours beer on himself, and then just stands there looking the right fool?

The dwarf is already reddish-brown.

#5 DrSunglass Mon, 2 Mar 2009 23:55:54
I think slowpoke was just being obtuse.

Come o, it's easy, he poured a potion over himself, we expected a color joke, and nothing happenned...
That's the funny thing.

Good. This is like the first time someone wrote a comic where Dudley met a newt, said a newt is no problem, and killed it with one hit.

And if we never make a potion-pouring joke again, it will all be worth it.

Amen to TB's wish.

As for being obtuse: probably, that's just par for the course. I got hung up on "reddish-brown", which isn't a color in NetHack as far as I can remember or quickly determine. So the dwarf becomes a color that up to now doesn't exist, and nothing happens, and it left me only puzzled instead of entertained.
