Hey Carl, Let Me Guest Blog

COMIC #599: No Joke Intended

It must be said that if trolling was the intention of this latest comic, then CONSIDER ME MOTHERFUCKING TROLL'D, RANDY, YOU FUCK.

In a suitably Carl-esque style, I want to relish ripping this one apart, piece by piece.

Well, well, well. As commentor luckykaa mentioned in the previous post: "Hell, why even bother drawing it? At best this is a twitter comment." and I could not agree more. The art is pretty unecessary, and it seems that Randall seems to think so too - just look at that 2nd panel.

Beret guy looks more like he's holding his head on than facepalming.

This, however, is what we've come to expect from Randall now, I won't carry on battering the drawings, because Carl does that plenty himself.

Overall message:
Randall is often made fun of in this blog for attempting to seem all "high and mighty", as it were, and until now, I've believed him to be innocent of this misdeed, but it seems clear to me now that his ego has gone too far this time. Frequent commentor poore noted the fact that the second panel is completely unecessary.
Unecessary as it may be, it shows us that Randall is now a fully-fledged wanker. I shall explain:

He EXPECTS people to be baffled hours later by his incorrect usage of "no pun intended" rather than just fleetingly bemused.

I mean, come on, if Beret guy was any average guy, after three hours, a nonsensical usage of "no pun intended" after a few impressive-sounding words would have faded entirely from memory. Randall seems to be having an "aren't I so clever!!" moment here, and not realizing that normal people have lives, and girlfriends and shit like that.

The Alt-Text:







Yes, this whole post is really just a build up to that rage about the alt-text.
So shoot me.

"Comic 547: FUCK NO" : FUCK YES.

I agree so much with the sentiment in this post, I'm not even going to try and criticize it. It sums up my feelings for the comic in question.
Although I did go and look up, like a common sheep, hoping that it was actually something kind of funny, meant in a sarcastic way, but no, it's just wikipedia in easy language.
One important question that Carl did not raise, however, is this:
"Where the hell did Randall get that site from?!"

I've never, ever seen it before in my life, and I've played around with the languages on there in boredom many times (usually translating french into english and seeing the differences oh God I'm so sad) and I've never come across it.

But overall, fantastic post. As seen before, even xkcd sucks sometimes likes xkcd, so why not work the other way round too?

[x amount] of things I slightly dislike about xkcd sucks


Why does it take Carl a whole day to put the bile he threw up, having seen the latest xkcd, into words? When I've seen a particularly bad xkcd, I want the bile RIGHT NOW. This instant.


There is this current trend of using CAPS LOCK ALL THE FREAKING TIME and caps lock is not cruise control for cool anymore. No sir.

...okay, well I can't really think of that much to say. I didn't enter into this whole idea really with a long-term plan. Any other annoyances, please comment below, and I will add them, because they'll probably be better than mine.
