04/14/2004 qualcomm (5): ohhh....NOW i get it.
04/14/2004 Craig Lewis (5): Perfection.
04/14/2004 Mr. Pony (5): Good shot, Janson!
04/14/2004 Will Disney: oh, right, i get it too! HA! someone explain it please just so i can double-check that i'm right.
04/14/2004 Maxwell Demon (5): Great job! I would never treat one of my plushies so carelessly.
04/14/2004 Dylan Danko: Whatever you do, don't explain it to Disney.
04/14/2004 Will Disney: oh no, i get it. i totally get it. i just thought maybe there'd be someone else - SOME STUPID PERSON - who might not totally get it.
04/14/2004 Mr. Pony: See, now I'm wondering if maybe I don't entirely get it.
04/14/2004 Dylan Danko: Here's what I'm thinking. The little fucker is either the little girl you tossed the poor bear out the window to begin with or the little girl who gave the bear the finger out the rear window as the car passed by.
04/14/2004 Mr. Pony: No, no, of course I get it. I was kidding. I'm very smart, and I get things.
04/14/2004 Dylan Danko: I meant who not you.
04/14/2004 Mr. Pony: But I didn't get that. I thought you were blaming me.
04/14/2004 Jon Matza: Guys, let's not start playing the blame game.
04/14/2004 Dylan Danko: Pony, huh?
04/14/2004 Ewan Snow (4): Yeah, I didnít get this one at first either, probably because I didn't realize that Slocum knew how to draw and that he is in fact the author. The spent condom next to the Teddy bear gives it away. Good work on this one, Slocum. But frankly, I'm a little disappointed in you; I always imagined the relationship with your Teddy as more loving than what is depicted here...
04/14/2004 Dylan Danko: I'd like to 5 star Ewan's comment. Disney??
04/14/2004 Jimson S. Sorghum (5):
04/14/2004 qualcomm: i just couldn't tell at first that that was a car passing in frame 3. looked to me like some kind of reality error at first.
04/14/2004 John Slocum (4): Alas, I am not the author/artist and in fact cannot draw. You imagine correctly, my relationship with Camper Teddy was extremely loving and unselfish. It was also natural and therefore we did not use condoms. While I threw him around forcefully, often even violently, during the sex-act, I always cuddled him afterwards and would never, ever have even DREAMED of throwing that dear, dear fellow out the window.
04/14/2004 anonymous: Liar.
04/14/2004 Dick Vomit (4): I love this. Fittingly, there was an abandoned plushy on my block this week, crumpled over in the downpour. Also, I miss Texxx. Talk about fucking the living hell out of a stuffed animal.
04/14/2004 Jon Matza (4): I'd have liked it better if Teddy had been heartbroken/frightened, not pissed off. A-1 art, though.
04/14/2004 Jimson S. Sorghum: Matza: Do these emotions preclude each other? I thought the art expressed the sadness, while the voice expressed anger.
04/14/2004 qualcomm: yeah, matza, you fucking genius of stupidity
04/14/2004 Jon Matza: I never said nothing about preclude, Brother Jimson. Just that I'd have liked it better if we only saw bewilderment/hurt. Pathos = sweet milk.
04/14/2004 Jon Matza: Ok then, you agree with Flimson's rebuttal to an argument I never made. I'll take that into account.
04/14/2004 Ewan Snow: Matza, I disagree with and hereby rebut everything you haven't said! But I also disagree (for reasons similar to Jimsonís) with what you did say, which is that it would be better if Teddyíd been heartbroken/frightened. It doesnít have to do with one precluding the other, as much as the first several panels are pathetic and the last is angry, which is a surprise. I was already expecting it to be heartbroken/frightened. Did you have a specific better line in mind? I donít doubt there is one.
04/14/2004 Jon Matza: Hmm...tricky. Maybe something like, "T-t-t-timmy?"
Also, I accuse you & your Lerpic brethren of overvaluing surprise. What about the sweet pleasure of seeing a sirloin set-up reach its logical conclusion?
04/14/2004 anonymous: Actually there were a few potential "punch lines". This one received highest marks by the test audience.
04/14/2004 scoop (4): I agree with Matza. Except I think pathos=sweet soy milk. We're not all as open minded about lactose as you are, brother.
04/15/2004 Ewan Snow: pathos = heavy cream
04/15/2004 Jimson S. Sorghum: Matza: I agree that the surpise is often overrated. However, I think in this case the teddy's emotions are made more complex by having both the sadness and the anger expressed. That's all, Bud. The element of surprise is not all that important to me in this instance.
04/15/2004 Cabot (3):
06/8/2004 TheBuyer (5): to offset the cabot spite-vote which is clearly bullshit.
