Obscene Indeed!

I worked as a tester for five summers during college.

Since my older cohorts thought it would be funny, I brought a Britney Spears calendar I received as a gag gift (I’m gay, she does nothing for me I swear!) to put up in my cubicle. As I was sitting in a high traffic area it was only a day or so later before one of the higher-ups took me aside and said, while he understood the joke, he was afraid someone would be offended seeing the calendar so visibly displayed. This was still in the “Baby, One More Time” era, and the calendar was essentially for teenage girls anyhow. I understood the reasons, however silly, so I took it down.

I returned the following summer and the guy who had pulled me aside had a six-foot tall Britney Spears poster on his office door. We were in the midst of testing the new Britney Spears Dance Beat game, and so her stuff was everywhere. How quickly things change! So much for sensitivity.

    How did the FOB learn to walk that quickly? Excellent comic.

    Maybe the pregnancy was also in crunch mode.

    I approve of the creepy fob, especially since we're rapidly approaching Halloween.


    fake edit: I originally typed rabidly and it took me two reads to figure out what seemed off. Also, my office needs a fob.

    The FOB being in the same pose as the famous blurry Bigfoot photo is a nice touch.

    The comics with Marley seem like some of the best so far.

    Hopefully the next comic has an Isaac reaction and a continuation of this crunch weirdness.

    That was my first out loud laugh with this series so far. I am enjoying it the further it goes.

    I find I read this comic for the posts about the game industry more then the actual comic. FOB does nothing for me.

    More importantly, how quickly can it run?
