You know, that's actually pretty damn funny.

This is the best one, I think. I still giggle when I read it.

This is brilliant.

It's awful. I like it!

Heh. It's like if Red Meat was about physicians :-) Cool.

I love these two because they remind me of my favorite geeky film-editing trick.

Magnificent. It's like Aaron Sorkin writing the Perry Bible Fellowship.

Wow. This is way darker than I expected, although I suppose most doctors and nurses will tend that way eventually...

Aw damn, I can't be considered hip for reading it now that everyone knows about it!

Very black comedy. Good stuff.

Curse you, Snyder. You have uncovered my secret webcomic refuge. Like CitrusFreak, I can no longer enjoy it now that it is all "cool" and "mainstream".

P.S. Do you steal superpowers too or is that just your brother?

A friend of mine sent me a link to this a week or so ago and I didn't like it.

But it's definitely grown on me. This is awesome.

I really love this one

Good link, cheers

A webcomic about doctors should not be funny. It just shouldn't. Throwing around long technical procedural terms works on shows like Scrubs because there is so much other stuff going on. In a web comic you have so little space to make the funny happen that you can't waste it on something that no one will understand.

Or at least, these are the words I would have written five minutes before I read the link. Holy crap these are brilliant.

A webcomic about doctors should not be funny.

Do you wanna tell that to Dr. McNinja? 'Cuz I wouldn't. He'd flip out.

Dark humor that makes Achewood look like Garfield... wow.
Or Scrubs look like The Munsters... wow.
My picks: Three Strikes, Clinically, "chatty fatty", "got your nose", Play God and Ultra-Son.

This is really good, thanks.

Yup. I'm a fan now. Another temporary panacea to cover the screaming agony of the ennui-infested blasted wasteland that is the tragedy I call my misspent life.

Oh.

I like cheese.

This is a great webcomic--like red meat but with actual drawings.

But... I have to admit... I just don't get get the current one.

Have a close look at panel two, Citizen Premier. Think about which way the syringe plunger is going.

Really funny stuff. Thanks, Snyder!

He's injecting himself with the patients blood?
I guess I was just supposed to chuckle from the "wtf value," but I overthunk it.

Great stuff! Can any Japanese speakers explicate this one?

This made me think of Dennis Miller as a pediatrician. I don't think I will use his line at the children's hospital where I work, though.

I will, however, share this with some of my more jaded colleagues.

OK, I'd be much obliged if someone would explain this one to me. Unless it's just supposed to be about a doctor giving a little kid a good long look at his mom's chassis. In which case... I get it?

This is the best webcomic I've been introduced to in a while. Now I can take revenge on a couple of friends who have led me to waste so much time reading through webcomic archives! Excellent.

Languagehat: The dialogue is some of the lyrics from "Soramimi Cake," the theme of the anime Azumanga Daioh.

Title: "Massive Urethral Inflammation 5000"

First panel:
Jim Belushi's [sic] Hospital
"The words on the strange door are, 'Mishearing Cake'."

Second panel:
"GOODBYE SADNESS"
"Don't cry anymore."

Third panel:
"Every day is pointless [lit.-fluffy]."


...Yeah, I don't get it, either. Maybe you have to have seen the show.

Hmm. I might be wrong about the "fuwafuwa" part at the end. It's apparently part of a longer line in the song, "Every day, the temptation of fluffy wheat," which makes far less sense. I knew there was a reason I never paid attention to the lyrics until now.

Drop Daedalus: Thanks very much indeed!
posted by languagehat at 5:06 AM on March 22, 2007


Wow. Thanks for this; it's bloody hilarious. I'm in love with this one.
