    This reminds me of the only SpongeBob episode with anything intelligent in it, ever.

    That's OK as long as they're only remembering a healthy amount of child pornography.

    Isn't the fact that the artwork was cloned kind of the point of this frame? Perhaps the metaphor was too subtle.....
  • LKM 2008-08-07 10:57
    Castlevania FTW.

    Holy shit... What happens if one of them needs to go to the bathroom?

    I could take amateurs spelled wrong...but "Manditory". I mean it's not like it's on the image or anything...

    Think they have catheters. Or it's a concrete floor with a bunch of drains.
  • James 2008-08-07 12:14
    That's what makes it extra-funny. I included a couple "the real WTF..."s.

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. In the meantime I'll start coding a paint program that has spell check included.

    Once again, I give up. What's the joke supposed to be?
  • charlie 2008-08-07 12:41
    You got the Irish Girl first.

    Therefore, you must win!
  • A Nonny Mouse 2008-08-07 12:43
    oh thank god, someone else doesn't get it. i was having a tumbleweed moment over here
  • MEE 2008-08-07 12:57
    That is the only complement I need today.
  • Anon 2008-08-07 13:02

  • MEE 2008-08-07 13:45
    I don't think they get it - never mind.

    They must be short of content.
  • seditious 2008-08-07 13:46
    This very post was a photoshop disaster... the real site has the same exact Blog Archive content block, and guess what? "Bognor: bugger." is the first post on the front page, right now...

  • Zylon 2008-08-07 14:19
    Why settle for one complement when you can get twos-complement?
  • DoctorFriday 2008-08-07 14:24
    It's the MFD Extra - an extra drawing I toss into the mix for purposes of re-doing the strip. Usually, it's a character or panel that doesn't "make the cut", but today, it's completely random and adds an extra challenge. Also, I figured some of the craftier people could do something with an apple tree that just happens to look a little bit like a face (and I wasn't disappointed!)
  • DoctorFriday 2008-08-07 14:25
    Nice use of 2.13!

  • Iago 2008-08-07 18:18
    Yes, folks, these are the people who are taking our jobs without even the basic courtesy of coming over here to do it. Bastards.

    Actually it looks kind of like a place I worked once... only with better computers. Gotta love cost-saving initiatives.
  • Redcloak 2008-08-07 18:33
    that was really good but only for those who know the Order of the Stick

    Actually, I did see that one, but by that time I'd already fixed like 5 other last-minute errors (One being the "Tuesday August 5" at the bottom, another being the C:\...\desktop\wtf.html in the address bar) so I was like "Screw it, they'll get the point."

    And no, it's not a Photoshop disaster, it's a MSPaint disaster. :P

    Are these C&H comics supposed to be funny? Or do you post them in the comments as a complement to the humourlessness of MFD?
  • JD 2008-08-08 05:30
    Can someone point out the humor for me, I'm having some difficulty.

    I'd guess it's a trade floor operation, not a programming shop. Look at those vests.

    2. "Fap"

    Dumbass.
  • jerkoff 2008-08-08 11:56
    1. PNG > JPG
    2. Doesn't Matter
  • A different Me 2008-08-08 12:01
    The question may say more about you than it does about MFD.
  • seditious 2008-08-08 15:16
    lol, mspaint disasters would be a great site... not for showing abuse of MSPaint, no... it's got no use cuz it's all abuse, it's the business end of a saw.

    Alternate Rebuttal:

    1. PNG superior for line art, 8-bit indexed = smaller than GIF
    2. OMG Finally an expert (whotf cares)

    Besides, both the original and blank are PNG to begin with. Get a lif.

    yeah, it's the trading floor of the Hong Kong, Hang Seng index.
    So they are getting paid well enough ;)
  • Zoologist 2008-08-13 07:46
    I'd hit that.
