So It Begins (soitbegins) says: I like the evil(heart) one!
Leon Arnott (l) says: That circular sticker looks to be the one that best describes the advertised comic, and also the one that would look most nifty when made into a badge!
Also, it seems a little odd that ANTONIO SMITH, FORENSIC LINGUIST recieves this much representation in early Narbonic merchandise considering how seldom he appears in the comic after his introductory arc.
Finally, I for one welcome the return of "C++ Made Difficult", quite possibly the funniest background detail you've ever written.
David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:
"C++ Made Difficult": He needs a manual for that? I thought that came naturally.... What are the other two books in that stack? I can't quite make them out....
(Back from a multi-day disconnection....)
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:
The "Hasta Los Gerbils Siempre" is one of my favorite things what every came out of Narbonic. It's twisted, subtle, and a cool graphic design to boot.
If I asked my wife to get me that on a t-shirt for Christmas, she'd tell me I'm an idiot. Then she would get me the @#$in' shirt. She loves me, I know not why. Lord knows I don't deserve it.
John Wells (johnwwells) says:
While Tristram Shandy is fresh in our minds, I would like to share something with you all: the mocking song that the Narbonics Research Twelve sang at their valiant last stand.
(To the tune of Lillibullero: The tune and lyrics)
Poor Mister Dave forever will pine -
Fight the power, Gerbil Rebellion,
Mell is a gal who can't take a joke,
Although her brain is stuck in her teens,
John Wells (johnwwells) says: And a quick correction for meter: the third line of the chorus should be "Win the hour, fellow gerbils."
Michael Heath (analyst) says:
Ok, I have a little trouble with the translation of the last one. Literally, Until the Gerbils forever? Does this relate to the World domination by Gerbils and that they rule forever, or is this more of a wistful kind of thing, like Until the Gerbils will forever run free? With the author's (How about that Shannon, you're now an author!) description of looking kind of like Che Gueverra, this may be the appropriate one. Kind of like free the Gerbil 10.. 9.. 7.. (and so on).
Or do I have my latin confused?
Michael Heath (analyst) says: Ooops, Shaenon, I misspelled your name above. Mea Culpa.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:
Much-belated Big Freakin' (tm) Gun count: 6
Much-belated linguistic note: In the last letter that Che Gueverra wrote to Fidel Castro before Che was killed, he ended it with the line, "Hasta la victoria siempre", which is Spanish for "Until victory, forever".Log In or Register to post a comment! It's free!
