    Assuming it's something about the iPAD, WTB newspost.

    edit:
    That iPad presentation had to be the worst thing I've even seen on on the Apple stage. There is a part where they - I am not making a joke - there is a part where they try to make creating spreadsheets seem awesome.

    That probably should've been the dialogue instead.

    P.s. Tycho has the facial structure of a Batarrian, less a few eye sockets.

    is the joke here that tycho... assumes his apple store-working acquaintance has early access to the ipad and is so jealous he slaps him? I can't make sense of this any other way

    I basically don't understand what would make this comic good

    it's not difficult

    in this comic trevor is apple, and tycho reacts as if he was slapping steve jobs himself in the face. but there's comedy because, of course, trevor isn't really apple at all, just a dude who wants to get lunch and is confronted with this outburst. yet there's also empathy for tycho, because it's an outburst welling up in all of us

    silly geese

    in that case it would have been better if tycho had not called him "trevor"

    but ok, that at least makes sense as a comic

    well there's also the element that apple fans have become rabid enough that they personally become a representative of the company; if you wear their t-shirt, it's assumed you subscribe to their products and ideas so wholly that you don't need to speak your position. your t-shirt says enough.

    whatever his good intentions, he ended up with a bloody beating. just from the associations of his apparel

    man this comic is not content light

    edit: wait he's an employee.

    Why doesn't anyone get this?

    Read the comic before the iPad announcement. Tycho makes a rediculous plea for information about it.

    This comic implies that Apple guy not only took him up on it, but they're now having some kind of relationship. But the iPad disappointed Tycho, so... slap.

    This is funny, keep up.

    The second comic affirms that Tycho and Apple guy indeed had sex after the events of the first comic and had started a homosexual relationship. It also denotes that even though they don't share the fancy for what brought them together, their love will endure regardless.

    Words words words.
