    If only the forums let me hate people to death.

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn

    Is it bad that my favourite comics are usually the ones that feature grievous bodily harm?

    Not on its own, but as part of a pattern of behavior, yes, it could be very very bad.

    Geth, can you ban the phrase 'pinful'?

    Not for me? Oh. Okay.

    I'm sorry. I created this monster of a phrase, and I apologize for doing so.

    It's an abompination.

    Wasn't there supposed to be a TARDIS half buried in the pins?

    I'm finding all these puns to be quite tacky, to be honest.

    Huh. Honestly I expected more response. Everyone seems very pinsive.

    So... Gabe's hair is bleeding.

    What I take from this?

    His hair covers up some fleshy appendage protruding from the top of his skull. Likely, a giant wang.

    And over the years it's been getting larger and larger, and, like a typical guy, he has been ignoring it by covering it with his hair and hoping it will go away.

    Man, I'd be all over those pins if they'd just sell them in the store. I know that defeats the purpose of pin-trading, but pin-trading is dumb... I can never make it to any PAX or anything :(

    Maybe PAX East... someday

    Everyone has a price. Throw enough gold around and someone will risk disintegration.

    I'm generally unpinterested in these sorts of collectibles. I can see pining for them at the convention, though. You really build a sense of pinclusion for a community with that sort of thing. Trade 'em over a pint (or pinot), and take 'em out for a spin.

    What is this I don't even.

    Oh no, I guess I'm a psychopath! Heh.

    Nah, I think it has more to do with the fact that it's so bluntly rendered in the comics and thus shockingly funny. Consistent lols compared to the other kinds of comics. The juxtaposition of Gabes second panel glee and the third here makes it work so well. The other one that comes to mind is the boot meets pikachu face one.

    There's something especially pleasing about the Merch pin's presence here. It's just so.... happy.

  • Skull2185Skull2185 Registered User regular
    I see the hotdog fairy, but doesn't "the watch" always make it into the PAX strip? Did you guys let us down?

    The watch appears when one of them kills the other. The victor takes the watch, much like the chess piece in the Count of Monte Cristo (the movie anyway. I haven't read the book, swine that I am)

  • Blackie62Blackie62 Registered User regular
    Well... that's pinteresting.

    The Merch in the eye is what sells it for me.

    Actually, I was thinking that'd be a great thing to do- take the sets that you can buy normally (like the massive amounts of core pins you must have), reassemble them, and sell them as 'refurbs'. It'd help make the 'blind bags' more valuable and random when they become available.
