    There was definitely some good variety on 2.1, but I'd have to say 202234 from ":)" was my fave, followed by 202075 from "Matt C.", and Zylon's 202126. And I have absolutely no idea what was said in 202553 by "le chi"... but I like it. That said, here's your the blank for today.

    at last - a comic on this site that's actually funny! thank you!
  • ObiWayneKenobi 2008-06-26 08:47
    I like the artwork, but IT'S STILL NOT FUNNY. There isn't any humor in the damn thing, AT ALL, and there was no punchline made. We get that Mr. Magenta thinks he's a supervillain so a vampire with a "Medallion of Power" would appeal to him, but he should have made a comment about wanting to steal it or something, so it would at least have a joke in it. It just... ended, abruptly.

    In short: Artwork = Good, Funniness = Bad. Maybe that's the point - a WTF-y comic for The Daily WTF.

    Not funny. Not even a little bit. Please stop.
  • ObiWayneKenobi 2008-06-26 08:48
    THIS was actually funny, and had a punchline!
  • Everyone 2008-06-26 08:49
    Oh, and BTW: No good artwork either. Not even a little bit. Please stop.

    More mocking for scidiotism please :)
  • fanguad 2008-06-26 08:52
    If MFD were like this, I'd stop complaining about it (I don't complain here, but I do to my coworkers).

    Not only is it funny, we get two completely separate jokes for the price of one!

    Furthermore, I'm willing to bet you put in 1/10th the amount of time as the original author coming up with your [far superior] jokes.
  • blackd 2008-06-26 08:54
    A set of adblock plus rules to block MFD form the article list and so on but does not block the article it self if you really want to view it.

    OMG ObiWayneKenobi, you just don't get it. The medallion and the phrase "operating on very high levels" refer to Tom Cruise and scientology (google "tom cruise medal" and "operating thetan"). So does the vampire outfit (scientology is claimed to suck money like blood from it's followers).
  • blah 2008-06-26 08:57
    Alex, please link to comics properly. It's much better if you just use the reply link instead of the entire page and hoping the browser will jump to the hash part of the URL.

    Where are the last two panels? I read the first four... seemed like a decent set up, then no punchline panels. Where there originally six?

    I decided awhile ago that I wasn't going to read these comics. They just aren't funny. I decided to read this one today, and it's still not funny.

    But the user submitted comics are hilarious. I was gasping for air. I'm going to go back and see if the same is true of some previous comics. I especially liked the "Clearly I am computing. Well, your monitor has no plugs or cords" lines.

    This comic strip -- and I'm being charitable in calling it that -- is a WTF. Worse Than Failure.

    I can't believe anyone in charge of this site actually thinks it's even remotely funny. Or interesting. Or anything good at all. I wouldn't line a birdcage with it.

    F*ck.

    Take it away.

    What's this? Tech humor in a comic on a tech site? Genius! Why didn't Alex think of that?
  • Siloria 2008-06-26 10:45
    Yea, like he could really afford to be drinking A+ "fresh out of college...", or is he a Hilton? Wait, he would not have gone to college if that were the case.

    He should push for legilation banning those of inferior blood-type from, ya know, like living and stuff.
  • Siloria 2008-06-26 10:48
    Wait, so:

    Alex = Evil CEO

    Everything suddenly makes sense!

    Man, now that I'm fully awake and coming back to read this, there is so much I would change. I think I can fit another terrible pun into the third panel. Something like "I think the C# team will be a perfect place for him to sink his teeth into". Or maybe "sharpen his teeth on".

    And I always thought the last panel was a bit wordy (I really wanted to be frist) so I'd adjust the sun gag to simply "avoids Sun".

    Oh well, glad everyone enjoyed it anyway.

    Is that immoral, or immortal?

    No - it's important to add the extra security of the adblock filter just in case you click on MFD in a horrible moment of weakness.
