Guest Strip #8 - OutlandishFlamingo


If I recall correctly, when I first read this comic, it confused me and I wanted to cry. Afterwards, I suddenly noticed the joke, wiped away my tears and promised the creator that I'd upload it as soon as humanely humanly possible. This was in November. As you can see, I am a very organised person.

There is one thing I dislike about this guest submission. The octopi in this comic all have the correct number of legs. It's like he doesn't even read this comic! Outrageous. If you somehow find it in your heart to forgive him, you might want to check out his deviantart account and look at the pretty pictures and things he has made and stuff.


Note: I must remind you that my lack of updates is not because I hate you all. I am an incredibly lazy, unmotivated person. Couple that with the fact that when I force myself to make a comic, this happens, I think you can maybe agree that it's for the best. Having said that, I'm about due for an update and I don't believe I can put it off for any longer, so expect a horrible comic at some point in 2012! Once again, thanks for the few of you who are still checking this blog for some reason. If I ever make merchandise, I'll give you a $1 discount. Just my way of saying thanks.

  3. I don't get it. Maybe the hideously perfect octopi are stopping the pun from making it's way off the screen into my brain.

  18. should have taken the former...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Do you want the former or the latter?

    ReplyDelete
  20. The fun in this comic is either the misunderstanding of the launch pod or the smiling face in the last panel, but I think it's the ladder.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Someone please explain it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. He didn't pick the former, for those who don't get it.

  36. I was just shown this comic by a wonderful, wonderful friend, and have read every one of these comics tonight. I also read most of the comments, laughing light-heartedly at the angry "please update" requests, and clicking merrily along to the many more comics I had left to read. But then I tried to press the next button under this comic. At first I thought my internet wasn't working. I clicked a second time. A third. My heart sank. There is no "next."

    I laugh no more.

    I am sad.
