Finally, what of sandvich?! Sandvich has bread in it! WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO SANDVICH IF YOU TELEPORT IT?!?
Medic says the "Things" only manifest in "an environment of pure wheat"

It's possible the Sandvich might not count, since it contains plenty of things other than wheat (Ham, Cheese, etc.)

Either that or it could be made from Rye Bread.

Hmm. Interesting. This could be a plethora of new things. Maybe a new class? Maybe the inclusion of genders for the team, starting with Scout, and working towards the other classes. Maybe a bread monster?

Maybe she's an objective - I mean, she is wearing Purple (Blue plus Red). Could be a capture (or defend) the Civilian type deal.

That was kinda fun. Ashly Burch is a talented actress and, while this was probably the least inspired of the TF2 vids, it was definitely worth a watch.

Now, subject matter. Can telling guys that they need to treat women like actual people be a meme? Not because it's untrue, but because it seems to be fucking everywhere right now, and the only people it's definitely doing anything for are the people saying it/writing it/singing it/texting it/etc. (fun fact: looking down on people feels good, but it may not make the person you're talking to feel inclined to listen to you even if your advice would otherwise be helpful).

Anyway. I want more HAWP episodes, and I want the jokes to be more noteworthy than non-standard ways to say or refer to the word 'tank.'

I have a question. Why doesn't valve make its own series and sell it to Netflix or something? Even if the graphics are a little dated with the game its still obvious that Valve has a talent for humor and SFM can obviously handle it. I would love to see more of these characters, especially Soldier. "I have done nothing but teleport bread for 3 days." Thats the first time in a long time I laughed so hard I was having trouble breathing.
Actually, this was going to be the second episode of that series they had planned to air on Adult Swim, but then they fell so far behind schedule that they gave up and just released this as a tie-in to the update.
