    Here's the 2.19 picks:

    * Random Act of Blindness by seditions gets the bringing back the Vikings to complain about not having Vikings prize

    * Although DavidN's #214236 wasn't technically an MFD-mashup, it was incredibly awesome

    * There's must something awesome about nmcafee's Mandatory Half Life Day

    Here's the blank one for today.

    Wow, not only does this comic suck, but the picks from the previous one are totally unfunny.
  • SomeCoder 2008-08-28 12:07
    This comic... I don't really get it. Is LeVamp supposed to be a double agent? Is there some previous comic I was supposed to have committed to memory to get this one? Or is there an IT thing I'm supposed to know about that I don't?

    <complaint>So, basically that means that this comic fails. I mean, is there even a punchline to really get? (and yes, I get the reverse polish stuff but... come on)

    Granting for the sake of the argument that it somehow makes sense to crate up vampires and "ED-FEX" (sigh) them to your enemies, why the smeg would you label the boxes?

    I'm starting to think that whoever writes these is genuinely suffering from mild mental retardation.

    Crates + Crowbar = Half Life reference needed. Everything is better with Dr Gordon Freeman. And zombies. (And oddly I thought of that before noticing there was a Half Life reference in one of the submissions for the previous MFD)

    Addendum (2008-08-29 01:27):


    It's funny (not humorous,I mean odd ;) ) that the truck and crates are drawn with some attention to perspective but the "3WC" nutjob is always in profile. This comic and the comments recycle more drawings than a low-budget 80s anime.




    Which is probably funnier.

    I hate these new Olimpic sports.

    Now that I think about it. I hate all sports.
  • Tei 2008-08-29 04:23
    Crates in videogames mean the mapper got bored.

    this has something to say about games where the first thing to see is a crate: The mapper got bored before starting.

    Once you see a crate in any FPS, you are done, has the mapper is bored and overused cliches will follow. You can uninstall the game.

    I think the record is 11 seconds before the start, to see your first crates. That may mean all FPS games somewhat suck and are kinda cliche driven, that is true.

    Epic Fail for not knowing what a reference is.
  • erisco 2008-08-29 15:38
    Less impressive than it should be because it is a reference... but I still laughed! Best comment I've read yet.
  • Me 2008-08-29 15:52
    Mark doesn't have time to draw new drawings! It takes a lot of time to write all the funny dialogue and storyline!

    I thought some kind of mime....
    Or to rephrase... It's a MIME Type... Ba doom tsh.
  • wtfrox 2008-08-30 06:17
    Attention to perspective ? The text on the crates seems to be just rotated...
  • seditious 2008-08-30 08:42
    Some. I said some, and I gave about as much... you see the "waves" in the "water" taking on a multidimensional shape to match the base? No? I must not be properly motivated, or something. Some higher-up obviously failed to inspire me.
  • Cayla Sha 2008-08-30 09:14
    More impressive because it is a reference!

    When I read the comment I first thought: WTF?
    But when I saw the reference I started laughing.


    I wonder how long it took Bob to find this XKCD-Strip. I read all XKCD-Strips but I wouldn`t know where to start searching.

    I thought of the Hollywood Squares angle too... we think alike. I'm so sorry for your sake!

    Agreed! Keep the C&H edits coming!
  • seditious 2008-08-31 18:27
    Zylon has a point... what's the motivation behind this? Did someone lose a bet?

    If this is just an awkward phase, fine... but why are they getting worse? Here's a quote from the opener to a story in a book I just finished:

    "I love reading mysteries, all sorts, and envy their authors almost as much as I envy musicians. I'd give a great deal to have the special mindset that creates a good mystery plot, and then peoples it with characters whom the reader feels don't draw their existence from the plot."
    --Peter S. Beagle

    s/mystery/comic; s/plot/joke; and there you have it.
  • swordfishBob 2008-09-01 00:30
    Yes, I hated the pointy, too.
  • swordfishBob 2008-09-01 00:31
    well I guess that's the question isn't it?
