Then I don't think you completely understand what the 2g1c is about, because it's exactly that, but with an extra helping of awful.

As an aside, for a comic about language, I'm seeing surprisingly little comics about language, and surprisingly many spelling errors and sloppiness, language-wise.


That'll be "few comics", I imagine, not "little comics."

Further pedantry: has anyone actually checked these numbers? A cursory check of my own suggests that Randall made them up

(which is roughly what I'd do)

I thought that too. I think as it is a participative site, it is whenever the meme is posted. I frequently see people posting "Hey wow look at this" on some fora and it turns out to be something I looked at six months previously but didn't think was funny enough to warrant attention. Lest you think I am some kind of meme-junkie, the positions are just as frequently reversed.

True story: when I first saw 2girls, it was a flash video and the (paused) player showed a frame from the video, namely the titular cup, and I honest to god thought it was a chocolate sorbet.

It even looked kind of tasty.


I think it *is* ice cream, or something else that one could actually stand to eat. It looks fairly fake for one and for two I can't imagine how much you'd have to pay someone to eat actual shit. My opinion has always been it was faked.

One thing I found interesting.

The amount of space between those oddities and "2G1C" is 2 girls, and 1 cup.


I think you'll find that 5 - 2 = 3
(Unless it's Nineteen Eighty Four)


Well, I think it's reasonable to take "the amount of space between" to mean the number of integers between in this case, which is not the same as the difference/subtraction and makes the observation true... Interesting! :) :wink:

Mostly, this reminds me of how unaware of internet memes I remain. I was fortunate enough to find the wiki on this, before the actual video.

Banned as in posting a Link to the original video? Here you go!

I don't think anyone will ban me for that one. By now everybody knows what it is about and It's behind a spoiler AND a disclaimer. Just for the curious people here. Google would do as well but for most of the pages you have to give out your credit card info. That one is on a free porn site.

My story about 2g1c:

I saw a lot of reaction videos first and they made me curious. Of course, I could not resist when I finally found the link above. I regretted it the minute it was over (I did not eat much the next week so to say :mrgreen:). But by today, most of the memory is gone, although this thread raised some bad pictures....

Anyway

Interestingly, Google has no results for "died in a 2girls1cup accident".
All posts are works in progress. If I posted something within the last hour, chances are I'm still editing it.

And it's pretty funny.

I can't believe they keep going back to watching it. And two of the girls have clearly seen the video before and/or have strong stomachs.


I am pretty sure this exactly shows the reason for the spike at 6 girls and 1 cup. Now they just need to film 5 girls watching the video and make it more entertaining than the 6 girls one to fix the graph.

I'm really suspicious of the numbers. Yes, posting the comic has changed the numbers, sure. But take "7 girls 3 cups," which Randall has at 2, but which Google has at 45, most of which clearly have nothing to do with this comic and were in existence long ago. And then there's "7 girls 7 cups" which scores 0 / 2000.

Not that it matters, but rather for interest's sake: I think that is the x & y orientation used in arrays (rows/columns) and on graphics devices. I know at least that it's how IDL graphics windows and The GIMP define coordinates.

I really don't get why this topic is worthy of a comic. I mean, there are lots of horrible disgusting things in the world, but do we have to have comics about them just because some small demented portion of the internet thinks they're cool? I really enjoyed searching around the net the other day to find out about the Reverse Bel-Air, but when I looked this one up on Wikipedia.... well... there are just some things you can't un-read. Why is it important that we all know about this? I'll be a little less excited about going to research the next one now, and that's too bad because I'm a big fan of xkcd.

Ah yes, obviously that error immediately invalidates the fact that this comic is hardly ever about language. Good point.

That's some amazing trickery, then, making ice cream come out of a person's rectum and then eating it in the same shot.

It doesn't look like it's Randall, because there wouldn't be a mention of the game if it was (plus, it's signed "marc"). I plan on watching the hit counter, which was at 77 when I checked last.

I also like the idea of imaginary/complex girls and cups. That would be a really trippy shock site.

Not that amazing. Warning: explicit and disgusting scenario follows...
Spoiler:
You give them both a strong laxative 24 hours beforehand and tell them not to eat any solids in the meantime. Once their colons are all empty, give them a good rinse with a plain water enema. Finally, insert ice cream using a confectioner's pastry bag. On second thought, better use chocolate pudding, not ice cream -- for various reasons.

Disclaimer: I have not tried this and have no intention to, but I have had a contrast X-ray of my colon taken once, and the procedure is all to similar. Except for what you do with the stuff when it comes back out. :-)
