Djinni should have summoned a newt swarm.

#2 Quint Mon, 31 Aug 2009 13:49:28
But he's not a jackass genie.

Yay, Dudley has survived for three comics in a row. I sort-of feel sorry for Dudley, we should try to keep this streak going.

#4 SmashFan2005 Mon, 31 Aug 2009 18:59:24
I laughed at this one..=D but why +13? that's supposed to be an unlucky number in NetHack.


E regardless.

@ais523: The biggest streak for Dudley not dying was in the old comic when he ascended for the 1st and only time. The 2nd time he tried to ascend a newt killed him on DLvl 1. :D I'll never forget that joke.

@SmashFan2005: Was that the original newt joke?

#6 Slandor Mon, 31 Aug 2009 20:52:54
The first time Dudley was killed by a newt, he'd been savescumming.

#7 SmashFan2005 Mon, 31 Aug 2009 21:48:11
I cannot recall the orginal newt joke no... the original one was waaaaay before Dudley Ascended.

Classic setup.

I'm surprised there's no single comment to the Kring reference. Seems pretty well-known :). Btw, no comic today?

#10 Quint Tue, 1 Sep 2009 16:55:30
It seems to be a corruption of "Sting"...what else?

The awkward pause is somehow so marvelously pulled off.

#13 xCheckPoint Tue, 1 Sep 2009 20:59:08
I made a quick shot, just in case paxed is running out of strips...

#14 anther Thu, 3 Sep 2009 06:22:10
A meta-meta-newt-joke. I'd been waiting for one of those.

#15 Sorceror Fri, 19 Feb 2010 14:39:45
Do we have any meta-meta-meta-newt-jokes yet?
