Foamy the Squirrel's long and funny rant. Here's a (Save-target-as) link if you prefer.

I don't suppose there's a transript? The dialog is a bit hard to follow.

Use entity references, dabitch: < techpick > ampersand-lt-semicolon, ampersand-gt-semicolon. But you're right. Monologue. The coffee hasn't kicked in yet.

Oh, I get it. See, it's supposed to be funny because it's a cartoon. Right?

I love Flash. Why was this Flash? Was there any reason for it? Someone took a long monologue that I swear I've heard in certain forms in various movies and drew four or five images with keyframe-tracking.

At least the Squirrel who says Wheeee has some kind of visual stimulus. Maybe there's more in this series that has relevant animation, but this one just had me asking why it wasn't just a post on some goth kid's "angry at my middle class suburban life" blog.

Well I thought it was laugh-out-loud funny. Thanx Aes....

XQ: Pretty soon Flash will be easy enough to use that all whiny teenage bloggers' bitching and complaining will be done by a little cartoon representation of their inner spirit animal.

10,000 little bats carping on about 10,000 girls who won't talk to them. The Internet is a truly amazing force.

You know what kind of people I hate? The kind of people who have so little self-esteem that they have to make unfunny, poorly-animated flash cartoons complaining about how everybody else in the world sucks. Nobody wants to hear you complain! Little foamy should take his own advice and go kill himself...

For what it's worth, Foamy's Rant isn't a good place to start - personally, I thought Five More Minutes was the best.

And guess what? I don't think the kind of humor you like is funny either! So I hate the people who do that kind of humor! Nyah!

Just kidding, I don't hate anybody.

How can you hate Hitler when he has a blog?

Does this count as Godwin?

No.

I also liked Five More Minutes. I, however, didn't find this particular rant in the least bit funny, which is unlike me, as I find most everything funny. Maybe I should stop taking the drugs...

i liked it alot. it was laugh out loud funny, in a way that most things that are said to be laugh out loud funny and linked here, they simply aren't.

thanks
