    The comics on 2.6 were once again insane.

    * Matt.C was the clear winner
    with #205432. I will gladly mail a WTF coffee mug to whoever actually makes that playable!

    * The Best Heckler (at least, I think it was heckling) was Micael Hannibal for #205499; wtfrox's #205391 and bstorer's #205399 came close.

    * MindChild gets the Most Likely To Induce Siezure Prize with #205551

    * Spectre not only gets Best Dialog Trophy, but gets a +3 bonus for having it stay in character #205511

    Today'ssans-dialog.

    Mini-Contest: I'll mail a WTF Sticker and an official award certificate (which may or may not actually be a post-it note that says "congrats!") to the winners. Assuming, of course, you haven't already gotten a sticker, you post with your TDWTF account, and you have access to the email account associated with it. If you won, please contact me with your mailing address if you'd like a WTF sticker.

  • Matt.C 2008-07-15 09:09
    My sticker and certificate arrived. Yay!

    I shall treasure them for all time, and show them to my grandchildren. Who would then probably try to colour it in, and then ask 'You had the phrase "WTF" when you were young? We always thought we made it up!'.

    funnier than the original, less blah blah blah to read, no cultural references for people not to get.

    What's not to like?

    I don't get it. How is a string of numbers a "batch job" in any sense of the term?

    Translation of Japanese text to English:

    * First speech bubble: "I'm the musician calculator person..."
    * Second speech bubble: "... If I press the button..."


    (Japanese text, resolved to proper kanji and kana:)

  • SomeCoder 2008-07-15 15:51
    Why indeed... though it might be because todays MFD wasn't funny... just like all the rest.

    Sorry but... it just wasn't.
  • Anon 2008-07-15 16:00
    Somebody trying to save you from the embarrassment of thinking today's MFD was funny?

    Oh look they must watch Lost too! = Not funny.

    It appears he deleted every post that isn't an edited comic.

    Keep actual comments to the comic reply page, I suppose.

    Auuugh - your non-grasp of the German language is highly cringe-inducing.

    Please, won't somebody think of us native German speakers? :(
  • Spartan 2008-07-15 20:23
    Sorry. I tried to use the Hebrew auto-translation first but the editor wouldn't accept the character set.

    edit: ... sorry again, but the more times I read your reply the closer I get to laughing too hard to breathe.

  • Hrrruuuuaaaaarrrrrrwwwwlll 2008-07-16 03:04
    As a native German speaker: I have absolutely no idea... doesn't make much sense ;)

    definite win
  • Tei 2008-07-16 05:56
    Derula you lost the thread automatically, because you use the word Nazy.
  • JB 2008-07-16 06:08
    I lacked the creativity to actually type random characters and make it look like a different language but it looks like I've achieved the same result anyways.

    The original text was: If u say Ahkmed one ore time I'm going to rip your head off.
  • George 2008-07-16 06:15
    There's no such thing as too much Cyanide and Happiness :D
  • JB 2008-07-16 06:19
    Was the comic edited or did you not know Nazis is the plural of "Nazi"
  • Tei 2008-07-16 06:51
    Oops.. is nazis. Sorry.
  • RC Pinchey 2008-07-16 07:03

  • Vollhorst 2008-07-16 08:30
    You know that the Germans didn't start the first World War? It was Austria.
  • Vollhorst 2008-07-16 08:31
    That would be something like: "Wenn du noch einmal Akhmed sagst, reiß ich dir den Kopf ab und scheiß dir in den Hals!"
  • Kefer 2008-07-16 08:38
    Thank you so very much.

    This comic and moreover the replies above make me allmost feel like I'm a normal person. At least I know there's room for me to sink a lot further.

    Or is this the pre-teen section or something?
  • Kefer 2008-07-16 08:43
    Thank you. It took 30 replies to eventually find one that made me chuckle.

    You get my vote (as if I had any)

    HEY!!! It's the Great Cornholio!!!

    Freakin' MFD...
  • domingl 2008-07-16 09:07
    It's true!
  • derula 2008-07-16 12:10
    Vollhorst: This is not about what I think. Or what is true. It's about what they're debating about.

    Kefer: Thanks.
  • TexDex 2008-07-16 12:46
    My notepad screenshot was also deleted. I realize that typing a comment into a text editor and taking a screen capture of that is probably not terribly original, but this was no normal text editor. I fired up a copy of Windows 3.11 and used the original notepad. That's got to count for something, right? I even got at least one appreciative comment before the whole thing was deleted. I think Alex is just being a killjoy.

  • jcoehoorn 2008-07-17 08:37
    I only know a very little German, but I think you added something, Volhurst.

    > "Wenn du noch einmal Akhmed sagst, reiß ich dir den Kopf ab"

    If you one more time Akhmed say, rip I your Head off...

    > "und scheiß dir in den Hals"

    and shove it in your ___

    I don't know Hals, but I can guess.
  • MadJo@Work 2008-07-17 09:10
    Actually "scheißen" is to take a dump...
    what was added was "and I'll sh*t in your neck"
  • fuzzix 2008-07-18 08:34
    Ha. Quality gag. Quality reuse of resources.
