alright then.
That was kinda the point, I guess. The song applied to the "world" of xkcd, which involves a lot of internet stuff.

PBF hasn't updated in weeks.

How long does it take to make a clever and ironic joke?

Some attempt at an insult. Though for one it had absolutely no relevance to anything, and secondly made no sense. Insulting me for answering DG's question? That doesn't make you "clever", it makes you look annoying.

I think what bothered me more was that at least 3 of the panels involved him sleeping with / having sex with his girlfriend. I don't need to, nor did I ever care to know that. Moreover, that comic exemplified everything I've ever hated about xkcd. "Romance", internet references, and high-brow humor.

The commercial is amazing. I thought the comic did not make it better. Nor did I think it was a "clever" spinoff.

That's just my opinion, though.

I wasn't trying to insult, I was saying that you were "cool" because you were making "internets" references. I was speaking in the nonsensical, idiot noob form in a parody of your original statement beginning in "hey guise" (which was, in itself, a parody).
Just trying to clear that up. Sorry.

Here, I agree. Why does the author think we need to know these things? I'm pretty sure a majority of the people that read the comic read it for things OTHER than relationships between stick figures.

I read:

-Penny Arcade: This one doesn't really need explanation; unless you hate their humor (or don't read webcomics), there's really no reason a video game fan wouldn't read Penny Arcade.
-8-Bit Theater: Absolutely massive archive, consistent humor (and updates), based entirely on a video game (and slightly on DnD), and with the perfect mix of humor on the spectrum ranging from mindless slapstick to complicated jokes based on theoretical physics. Pretty fitting for me.
-VGCats: I know a lot of people hate this comic, but I think it's really funny, even though it misses a beat occasionally and Scott sucks at updating. The art (particularly the facial expressions) is half the joke.
-xkcd: Though the type of humor in comics about "romance" is often lacking (and... questionable... an example being the qualm Acekirby had with the Discovery Channel comic), the sarcasm, math and language parts are wonderfully clever, and basically work off of entirely untapped material due to how small the audience is. Along with 8-Bit Theater, this is one of the few examples I let putting almost zero effort into your comic's visual style slide.
-Perry Bible Fellowship: I really like the offbeat humor, even though it's sometimes a little too over-the-top, and a lot of the jokes have really clever irony.
-Also a few furry comics I won't bother linking.
-And I'm a fan of Cyanide and Happiness for some unknown reason. I don't regularly read it, though.

I'm pretty sure it's just a fantasy of his. A guy that makes a webcomic about math doesn't seem like the type of guy to be getting any.

I always liked that one. Cyanide and Happiness can be good sometimes, too.

Today's XKCD, on the other hand, is terrible beyond belief. *washes eyes*

I just read through all of Starslip Crisis over the last two days. Now I'm giving a go at No Need For Bushido? I'm not sure what I think of it, though. Anyone out there like it?

Wow, terrible beyond belief. So horrible it necessitated an eye-washing.

Please feel free to explain why it is so bad. I can't see it.

Ah, my bad. I need to be better at checking post dates in these slower threads.

I thought she was bad-mouthing a Macgyver reference.

I did too. I was going to say, the MacGyver one is pretty good.

Yes, the poison ivy one sucked.

Yeah, that one made me smile. I just really really don't want to think about what the author apparently thinks people do on camping trips. O_o

Eh, I don't really like Yahtzee. He's funny, but he doesn't really do much other then whine about video games or whatever subject is stuck up his butt at the moment. Plus the extremely fast-talking narraration gets old after a while, and I just wish the guy could talk coherently for more then a few sentences.

If you want to see someone who does the "wacky narraration and images" thing well, check out Lore Sjorberg's stuff.

You clearly didn't know about him before Zero Punctuation. He's capable of coherence.

He's always been pretty whiny though, I have to say.
