I can't tell you which will be more interesting, but I can tell you that it won't take me two hours to hammer everyone who has wronged me, unlike some thunder gods I know...The Gentleman said:This thread or the already-spoiled fight scene from Thor: the Dark World: Which hammer fight shall be more interesting?JonB said:*Casually strolls into thread, holding Banhammer*
Hey guys, what's going on in this thread? Oh? Weatherman calls for a shitstorm?
I'll stick around and watch, you know, just in case.
Taking bets now...
Straw men? I have definitely had people tell me that "white men are the group that suffer the most discrimination today" with complete sincerity. I have also had so many "is this racist?" discussions derailed by people going on a "you're just being PC" rant.Father Time said:An insult to Family Guy. I didn't find this funny either. They're trying to make a point by making fun of straw man versions of points nobody actually brings up in those discussions anyway.Legion said:I think that is probably the reason for why I don't really find it funny. It should be, but it has the same level of subtlety as Family Guy. Maybe Grey finally got fed up with all of the people who always said "I don't get it." in the comments section?Father Time said:This is the most shameless piece of flamebait I've ever seen ever. You've basically become a full on troll at this point.
Then again it's also possible that I am just really not in the mood for laughing right now, and would find it funny if I was feeling better.
...No it's not. But it says a lot that that's how you interpreted it, especially since there's literally nothing about sexism anywhere in there.715 said:This is just saying that racism to whites and sexism to men can't ever ever happen
This is going to be a 90+ post thread with nothing but "abandon thread!" and "shitstorm inbound!" memes and posts without anything to actually show for it. The closest thing that I've seen was someone blandly saying "You should have read the evidence for the Zimmerman trial."JarinArenos said:*nudges the shitstorm in from the wings* C'mon, quit being boring...
Or as I said back on page 1:Abomination said:Trying too hard, to be honest.
I get the joke, I just don't find it funny.
RJ 17 said:Pretty much my thoughts exactly. I'm betting that this one is just "too easy". As in there's a difference between "flamebait" posts and coming right out and saying "Come on you rat bastards, I DARE you to get pissed off at this! PLEEEEEASE! I'm beggin' for your hate!"Teoes said:I half expect this'll actually be another one of those threads that is several pages of "Woah, man, shitstorm INCOMING!".. and no actual shitstorm. Don't let us all down, folks.
Or, to put it another way:
I'm pretty sure this comic is much less an example of flamebait and much more an example of that other thing I said.
I'd imagine the people that frequent sexual orientation/gender/race baiting topics don't find very many things funny in those subjects. I'm with Abomination in that I got the joke, just didn't laugh that much because it was too in-your-face. I chuckled, but wouldn't call this "hilarious" because I do prefer at least a mild touch of subtlety to my humor. That's not to say I can't appreciate an in-your-face joke, but this one seemed to drag on just a touch too long and that made it stale to me.Ishal said:Just have to say after perusing back through here, some of the avatars that don't find this funny seem to be the same ones that get into heated ahem* "discussions" in the gender threads.
You don't find it funny? Well that is because its making fun of you, and it couldn't be any more blatant about it. The rest of us seem to think its hilarious.
He has white skin. Police don't know someone's ethnicity when they pull someone over. If you're of hispanic descent but light-colored skin and you're walking through NYC, you probably won't get stopped and frisked. If you're of hispanic descent but with darker skin, your odds go up.Alek_the_Great said:Is this a joke about how when people complain about people randomly making white characters black simply because you feel like there needs to be more black characters? Oh yeah, nice joke about Zimmerman. I'm sure he definitely pulled his gun for no reason whatsoever, it's not like Trayvon was beating the ever loving shit out of him. Also, isn't Zimmerman NOT EVEN FULLY WHITE (you know, that whole "hispanic" thing he has going on)? That pretty much invalidates the entire joke actually.
Well you know what a MILF is? Well its when a guy tries to go for a milf and she "son zones" him. At least that's what I hope it is.Eternal_Lament said:Of all the things that attract attention in this comic, of all the things that draw one's eye, one thing sticks out to me:
.....what exactly is the "Son zone"?
Only if Sarkeesian was dressed as Rita Repulsa. That... would be... perfect.Kitsune Hunter said:Well this was interesting one this week, I think it's your best Critical Miss yet, although I feel if you wanted to be completely controversial, you should of included Anita Sarkeesian and a dig at Evangelion for it to be perfect. Now I'm going to sit back, relax and revel in the ensuring chaos that will soon follow
Indeed, the last thing this comic is, is subtle, and the second to last thing is un-funny.Abomination said:Trying too hard, to be honest.
