Smithson Thus Far... ·

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:


I'm gonna clean the Alphonse
With Swiffer tidily!
I now will end this nonsense,
And that's why you like me!

Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says: Jeepers! Self-esteem books like that are nearly as creepy as Chick tracts. Hey - maybe that would be a good art project - a Chick Tract parody where the family saves the wayard son from Windows machines and helps him embrace Macs.
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: What's an Alphonse?

And Tiff, don't knock Macs.
Edwin Quantrall (reynard) says: Uh...I think he's knocking Windows. (Not that they don't deserve it. It's why *I'm* a Mac person...)
Pete (westrider) says: Shaenon tossed a little pamphlet with the first Skin Horse story Arc in when my Brother got me Narbonic Vol.I for my Birthday. My reaction was pretty much "Hey, it's like a Chick Tract for awesome Webcomics!", and so I left it in the breakroom at work.
Valerie Kaplan (shinyhappygoth) says: So It Begins:  Well, they did ask for the name of a room in your home...
Pete Bleackley (petethemadscientist) says: Apparently, among some of my older colleagues, "Alphonse" used to be a slang term form an impedence-matching adapter. Apparently it came from a joke whose punchline was "Lucky old Alphonse, in the middle again!" Fortunately, I don't know the rest of it.
Cesario VIola (cesarioviola) says:

At some point I named each room in my parents' house growing up with the name of a continent. All I remember now is that the constantly-too-hot front living room was Africa and the finished basement was Australia.
