Smithson Thus Far... ·


Shaenon: Here, Molly Alexander writes, "you can see what Unity does in her spare time. Raid the cookie jar, which Sweetheart has attempted to hide on top of the fridge. (Because evidently, a small husky-type can do that.) Unity, being Unity, has solved this age-old problem zombie-style. Her shirt, naturally, says 'I HEART ORGAN DONORS.'"

There's something very charming about a zombie who wants cookies. And look at all the fridge magnets! Seriously!

Meanwhile, Matt Weiner continues the tradition of Tip video-game avatars established in previous weeks.

Writes Matt, "I did an environment for the office and basement, with the rest of Team Horse (pre-Nick) and the underground critters as well. It's in NetHack (SLASH'EM, actually, because I wanted to get the mushrooms in)." Matt points out that it's possible to be a Dresser in NetHack: "It's a circa 10th-level Healer, which seems like a pretty good approximation of Tip's character anyway."

This may be the nerdiest art we've gotten yet. Well done!

Channing: You guys are, like, the greatest fans ever. Molly, Matt, you two get the spotlight today -- and you well deserve it -- for two radically different but equally perfect and apropos takes on our little webcomic. ("Skin Horse" is, of course, square at the intersection of Nerd and Adorable.) But I just take a second to shoutout to the group... Molly, Matt, all of you. Are great. I mean, holy geez, I am so full of love this morning.

Shaenon: I'm always full of hate, so it evens out.

Rob (rrreed) says: And most of the rest of us are so full of weird that everything actually remains nicely off balance.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Swinging On A Star", Jimmy Van Heusen and Johnny Burke)

Now she wants to reach for the jar!
Though it's way up there, kinda far,
Her solution, now, is bizarre!
She's being glared at by a dog!

A super-intelligent and modified breed,
She just wants a team that she can lead!
If she acts bitchy, that's her normal state!
And just like Shaenon, she's so full of hate!
Although she's smarter than any TV star,
Can't keep the zombie from the jar!

Because the girl named Unity knows
It's got Double-Stuff Oreos!
So she'll stand up way on her toes,
Her arm detaches at the scar,
So she can reach that cookie jar!

Tom Powell (top1950) says:

Unity is just being Unity.  Ha! 

By the way, I love Sweetheart's expression!  Great job.

Nate Waisbrot (nate) says:

Matt's cracks me up!  That is a fantastic level of detail.


But it doesn't address the important question of Tip's AC...

Tyler Wright (tylgar) says:

Wow, I can actually pick out where each of the Skin Horse main cast are in the NetHack picture without looking up NetHack character references.  So the question is, what's nerdier, the fan art or the guy who understands it without explanation?
