The line "I think your fetish is weird as hell" has some serious fad-potential, imo :P

Did you draw all of those owls? Because those are some impressive consecutive owls.

Thanks :D

I'm actually not too skilled at drawing, so I mainly used the above as an excuse to practice :P

Oh god, please don't make that into another "better than vista" / "listen, I wouldn't worry about that" / "I've never been turned on in my life" style micromeme.

Actually, I *would* worry about that. Why? The micromemes will only multiply, like their copy of the Kama Sutra has a mistranslation, crowding together into a giant Katamari ball of references, never to be stopped even by BHG's carebearstare.

I saw that xkcd last night, and it didn't look like that. It's funny, since after seeing the change, I came here with the intention of posting something along the lines of what SirBryghtside did :P

My first thought was to make an XKCDSW of the original version that I saw (the aliased one) with a slight blur applied in any image editor to smooth it out. :P

I am bothered that my protest of something becoming a micromeme has itself because a micromeme. It reminds me of the time a person I knew in high school said "You can't expect everything you say to be quoted."

Not the first animated xkcdsw, but I still feel proud of making this.

I'll be uploading video and stillframe versions later, as I realize a 5.35MB GIF is a bit ridiculous. Done.

Also, I know that's not how the blue ghost is supposed to behave; you try figuring out how game mechanics would translate when placed on the surface of a lake :P. Bonus points if you actually make it into a game after figuring that out.
