    Here's the !dialog one for today. As for Friday's, I'd say the best were definitely ... #183746 by Everybody Needs a Happy Friday and #183791 by xyz

    trwtf: YET AGAIN reused "art"-"work". damnit, if you want US to do the funny for you, at least give us some new material to work with.
  • Program.X 2008-03-17 09:13
    Agreed.

    I'm enjoying making my own up. But we need material!

    Brilliant, sir. I think the only difference to 1.15 is that Gilroy's arm doesn't move in the middle panel, but 'top spot' to you.
  • Lingerance 2008-03-17 09:50
    Awesome, was anyone else expecting a laser from the eyes?
    The death ray from the finger was a pleasant surprise.

    No-one else spot the typo in the original? That was the funniest bit!
  • Bob 2008-03-17 10:06
    No, I spotted it. I wondered if any of the comment-toons would mention it.

    I can deal with the bad artwork. I can also deal with the comic not being very funny (yet). I can't deal with this guy reusing the same artwork for multiple strips. He's done it like 3 or 4 times so far. Are these things really so hard to draw?

    I think it's time that the author scaled it back to, say, 1 comic a week. It's clear that he needs more time to work on both the writing AND the drawing.

    This comic is great but it needs to be a bit more accurate. I think the $200 million number is way too low :)

    Good work.
  • AbbydonKrafts 2008-03-17 11:35
    So do I. Especially the last panel with the back-and-forth pointing.
  • :-X 2008-03-17 11:40
    Pwnt. Nice.
  • :-X 2008-03-17 11:40
    Haha, awesome. :D

    thanks for the explanations guys, I was wondering what this one was about. Now you have explained it, it is funny.

  • anonymous 2008-03-17 12:37
    I think these should just stop...they are getting too redundant and none of them are really that funny. Leave the comics to Dilbert.

    This is the real WTF - proclaiming XCKD is not funny...WTF????
  • Will 2008-03-17 13:19
    Ok, I can see that Irish Girl is in fact a twin, but it's not clear - are they Irish Laddies or are they anorexic, cause they're both built like spock.

    Is "girloy" in the second frame a typo, or on purpose?

    Nice flames, although I think a more subtle hair-on-fire approach would've been pretty cool.

    Can you really read this one and say that xkcd is not funny? I almost died when I saw this the first time...

  • T $ 2008-03-17 15:44
    I can't help but wonder: does this imply a future rating system for the comic comments?
  • Program.X 2008-03-17 15:49
    xkcd is NOT funny
  • Tei 2008-03-17 15:56
    XKCD don't need to be funny. There are more things in life. Harsh humor is one. Do you guys remenber the one about "A/S/L do you have pic"?

    O RLY




    The truth is that the author of XKCD is secretly emo.

    Nope.

    I killed all emo kids in 20.019.
    And after that, I builded a time machine, and sterilized all the emo kids on all other dimensions.

    All Emo kids has been purged from the system.
  • Tei 2008-03-18 09:13
    No, no.. guys.

    This one work because the head bounce in a cartoony style, and the ZAP sound effect is very cartoony.
