Obviously there's something here I'm not getting.

#2 Sorceror Sun, 17 Jan 2010 10:31:48
Uegh. Apart from all the typos/grammatical errors and Dudley actually saying "Lol" ... is there anything _right_ about this comic?

This is the most forced Reference To Something I've seen. It's so bad that it gave me a nosebleed. So although I'm the one with blood on my face, I believe ctaboir is the big disgrace. Don't make me wave my banner all over the place!

Let's all explain this to anther by throwing rocks at him. anther, fair warning, we WILL rock you!

I have seen people say LOL out loud, but it's somewhat uncommon.

#4 NobodySpecial Sun, 17 Jan 2010 16:49:12
I've only heard it used (and myself used it) sarcastically.

#5 TJR Sun, 17 Jan 2010 20:18:28
I've only had people say lol in France.

#6 ctaboir Sun, 17 Jan 2010 20:58:35
@sorceror: typos/grammatical errors? Huh! I need to get some more about this... As I'm still (and always) trying to learn English, please let me know. And especially as you are apparently understanding the story behind the comic:

If this is only "Lol" instead of "LOL", please let me Lol about it!
If this is for Brian May's lyrics, you should complain directly towards him.
If this is in-game messages, please complains towards TDT
If this is something I missed, please let me know!

Then I perfectly understand that people couldn't like this strip. I should also write "we need submitters" in color. Lol.

#7 Sorceror Mon, 18 Jan 2010 01:15:53
"you see a can of grease" should be "You see here a can of grease"
"Lol!" should be "HAHAHAHA!". Note that Dudley has already laughed out loud by this point.
"Duddley" should be "Dudley", and there's a : missing for Dogley's line.

There's nothing wrong with Brian May's lyrics; this comic does not do them justice.

#8 ctaboir Mon, 18 Jan 2010 22:01:43
@sorceror:
One badly written in-game message (I missed "here"). OK.
Then:
Dudley Lol'ed only two panels after the one with the "Lol!" comment (see capitalization). As you are reproaching me capitalizationÂ…. Before, in the previous panels he was just laughing, not loud.
Then Duddley instead of Dudley, is a reference to Buddy (doubled-d) in the lyrics (sure, this was not clear).
Then, there are then two extra colons in sub-panels (and not one missing).

Then, sure this comic is bad. Lol! Better than the missing one today, though...IMHO.

#9 Sorceror Mon, 18 Jan 2010 23:35:01
I believe it was proven on Jan 15 that Nothing is better than Something for low values of Something.

I don't see any extra colons. I do see a missing colon for Dogley's "you're a boy make a big noise" line ... come to think of it, the colon distribution is generally inconsistent. It's just noticable here because of the Oracle's line.

#10 Slandor Tue, 19 Jan 2010 02:47:00
I think it's generally a bad idea to put a : between an @ and a ". Hasn't he suffered enough?

#11 TobyBartels Tue, 19 Jan 2010 06:27:43
E to Slandor #10

#12 xCheckPoint Tue, 19 Jan 2010 08:19:35
I agree with #10. E because the somewhat fussy critics do not do this comic justice.

#13 ctaboir Tue, 19 Jan 2010 17:34:12
E to slandor's comment. Not to my comic. (Nothing better than Something, therefore something is the best. Even with low value)

E to slandor's comment.

#15 TobyBartels Tue, 19 Jan 2010 21:00:52
(Even though Slandor's comment is a newt joke.)

#16 Slandor Tue, 19 Jan 2010 21:21:59
I like newt jokes.

Also, I just realized that that's a QUEEN bee. Nice.

#17 ctaboir Thu, 21 Jan 2010 12:58:54
@TJR by the way in France people say mdr, not lol, Lol or LOL

#18 Anonymous Fri, 5 Feb 2010 16:45:13
I half expected a homestar runner reference. But it's a reference either way.

#19 Sorceror Fri, 19 Feb 2010 13:48:17
"I think it's generally a bad idea to put a : between an @ and a ". Hasn't he suffered enough?"

He might suffer if that was a :, maybe less if it was a :.
