I liked the way the artist depicted the copier light? That was interesting?

The copier light was a nice touch.

What's this "wwhy shrek is piss"? Is that meme that is dead and gone and I should be happy I missed it? I really do count on you folks to tell me these things.

This will do for Dilbert what Spengbab did for Spongebob. I'm not sure what that is. But it will do it.

after years of being dark, the node in my brain where my memory of Bart the General was stored was just suddenly and violently reactivated and I'm not sure I can cope

How different my life would have been if I'd viewed that on my C64 in 1989.

That was something, for sure.

Who here thinks griphus is Scott Adams?

Is this something I'd need to be a certified genius to understand?

Finished season 3 of Breaking Bad.
I understand, now.

This is deeply weird.

I wasn't aware that there was anything else in the style of Bart the General. In the universe. So thanks, I guess?

I had a fever dream like this once.

I don't care for the comic strips, but the two cartoons are awesome. I love the weird echo on all the voices. More things should be like television as transmitted via nightmares in Hell.

No god dammit.

Bart the General was magic. And you cannot bottle that lightning. I won't have it!

griphus is not Scott Adams. he's Jim Davis, of Garfield fame telling Scott to lighten up on parodies the way he has.

I told you man.

Wow, that was marginally better than The Critic and only slightly worse than Custer's Revenge.

Wait, what? This seems less like "in the style of" and more like crude Bartsploitation. Bart the General was so compelling to me because it was challenging and unpredictable on every conceivable metric - character, timing, art, plot, sound, etc. etc. Detail was rich -- like, why was the bar renamed "Mr. Hot and Mr. Cool"? Why did that make my skin crawl? Did you notice how the characters names gradually shifted through the series, as in Homer to Omar to Omarn? Characters were introduced and dismissed with such jarring car-crash unpredictability that I was left truly fearing for the livelihood of every person, place, thing...

This feels like a rehash of the crassest tricks with none of the magic or mystery! Like Sum 41 to Bart the General's The Fall. All wrinkly close-ups and slapstick bad behaviour, no creeping existential dread...

Sorry for dissing your link! Apparently this is something I feel passionate about!

That was absolutely awful. Next time you find something like that, keep it to yourself.

The world is turning all 8-bit. Is this the terrible backlash against all the 3-d movie hate?

urban dictionary tells me that "shrek piss" is neon green urine after drinking energy drinks

Oh, this is by Chef Boyardee, the guy behind Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden - possibly the funniest RPG ever made.
