    Exceptions aside, if I'm playing a video game and a portal just starts opening up out of nowhere, I pretty much have the same attitude as Tycho.

    Which game is this? I love games involving killing things coming out of portals.

    What is this I don't even.

    In Tera in the new expac there's a quest to open a portal and reinforcements come through it.

    I am 90% sure that is Destiny. The person is a Lighting Warlock and that portal looks like the one you go through for Oryx raid/court of orxy for controlled public events.

    WTF does, "Just m because there's ait." mean? Is this some meme speak I missed?
    Also, that portal looks like a vagina, and most people would say babies are a good thing. When you think about it, the birthing canal opening up is like a portal opening randomly in space, ergo babies are a good thing to come out of portals.

    Hey merchandise people, can we get "Just m because there's ait." on a t-shirt or something? This is some phenomenal typo-ing, and making it into a t-shirt will surely drive Jerry further into the void of insanity.

    Usually Tycho sends the text over, Gabe copies & pastes it in. He intentionally leaves in "Tychpos" in order to shame Tycho. Also Tycho has to pay a penalty donation to Child's Play for each one.

    I wonder what the original line was. It looks like they had one line and placed a new one over it. The "M" is not in line with the other text.

    I'm pretty sure the first draft must have had "Just a minute." as part of the text, then it's been partly but not completely overwritten by the "Just because..." line, I guess they were trying to remove the double use of "Just". Hence "Just M because there's aIT. portal..."

    That portal does not look like a vagina! What kind of vaginas are you looking at?!?!

    Love the art in panel 2.

    Don't love the quality control issues in panel 1.

    Gabe's apparently having a stroke in panel 1. The raw cookie dough finally takes its toll.

    Surely this isn't a Tychpo, right? Maybe Mike grabbed a portion of the text and moved it on accident? Or maybe they made an edit in real-time and Mike didn't fix it all up?

    I just don't see how Jerry could've typed out something THAT bad...

    EDIT: Damn Jerry...just, wow man :D

    Obviously the VOIP is getting distorted and Tycho is hearing nonsense from Gabe. Or the stroke thing.

    I'm not really one to criticise but the text issue in Panel 1 is embarassing.

    If you think that portal looks like a vagina, I don't know what to tell you son. I got 99 problems, but vagina recognition ain't one.

    They fixed the typo, FFS.

    You may now proceed to criticize every other goddamn thing in the strip.

    "Yeah, I'm glad that came out." - Me, every morning

    I mean, I'm not literally looking at it emerge from the portal, but the sentiment is the same.

    The Star Fox team emerged from a portal that one time.

    Though I suppose that depends on which side of the war you were on at the time.

    If you've got a portal down there you should see a doctor. Or like... an occultist.

    Those are hyperspace gates, completely different from portals.
