It's time to find that little piece of magic that makes xkcd so special, and kill it.

I'm kind of scared, actually, it's getting dark and I hear strange noises. God, I'm such an idiot, how could I have let you go? If we both get out of here alive, I swear I'll change. Not that it matters, you're probably dead already.

These remind me of my life much more than the original strips.

I don't think I like this thread. It's depressing seeing something that looks like XKCD but sucky. :?

Make it stop, plz? :shock:

Hmm. While it often takes a significant amount of effort to take something unfunny and make it funny, it's much easier to take something funny and make it unfunnny.

I actually think the first one with Diet Coke/Mentos is hilarious. I can't even remember the original punchline, but this is the ideal punchline for that strip, if you see it as a commentary of all the "hype" surrounding this phenomenon...but I guess that's kinda obvious.

The real funny part is that I say "You sicken me" (in reference to Futurama) at least once a day. I have no idea why. Habit.

Disclaimer: This was not a flame bait, just what was in my mind on reading that comic initially, then drawing in the recent Math v. Maths debate thread, Mr. Black Hat Man and the Star Wars parody comic for the hell of it. I fully respect your spelling conventions.

EDIT: A revised version, in keeping with the "Ruin rather than Revamp" theme.

Oh come on!

You took it out of context! I didn't mean to say I hate you!

...

Also, if that -wasn't- in regards to the accidental Thesaurus hating, I'm sorry for whatever other thing I did.

Here is my contribution. It's amazing how painful it is to use an image editing program over remote desktop...

Edit for RG's suggestion: link to comic. Also cleaned up some of the artifacts in the image, which I didn't notice the first time around because of lack of colors on remote desktop.

Hendusoone, that's brilliant. You win the internet, sir or ma'am.

:D too bad it wouldn't be as funny to people who aren't familiar with the sappiness (as well as failure) of the original.

(Wouldn't she waste more time spinning than she would regain by slowing the rotation, etc.)
