    This was for a friend wasn't it? It really would have fit in well in a Megan Man X game.

    The design was actually from a GBA game that we were trying to get off the ground a long time ago, and he'd had a copy of the concept sketch* on his office wall for a couple years, so I figure he'd like a version that looks a little more polished.

    Is this a game about ladyboys, or just a typo?

    Yes, Mega man is. Megan is a beautiful girl from middle school that I never got up the courage to ask out.

    Fine. I thought better of doing so after D-Robe, hopefully, made the substance of the joke obvious, but I guess I'll do a blow by blow rundown of the joke, for the benefit of the extremely slow amongst us.

    The crux of the joke is based upon making fun of the typo in Tam's post, wherein he misspelled the title of the hit Capcom series of video games, "Mega Man", as, "Megan Man." Since Megan is a common female name in many modern Western societies, and the word, "Man" is specifically male in nature, this typo results in a proper noun of confused gender; not dissimilar to the title of the 1983 Michael Keaton film, "Mr. Mom". Hence, by combining a play on the video game and the gender-ambiguous nature of the phrase, I presented a hopefully humorous idea of a video game, called "Megan Man", which would, rather than being about a Man who was Mega as "Mega Man" was, would be based around the adventures of a transgendered person named "Megan", not yet entirely through her gender realignment process. The colloquial term "ladyboy" was here used to refer to persons such as the hypothetical Megan in this hypothetical game.

    The humor of said joke comes in as transgender issues are not often the subject of popular video game franchises, especially not those with origins from the 1980's such as "Mega Man", which were created during the particularly conservative political climate of the Reagan years; it was thought during this period, transgender, or indeed any sort of LGBT issue-driven video games would find little purchase in a Nintendo Entertainment System dominated market, which were seen as the time as being exclusively for children; as such, issues presented by such a game would likely go over the heads of the audience, or be seen as inappropriate as the subject for such a came by the collective parents of a largely conservative country.

    Thus, the presentation of such a game, "Megan Man", would be seen, or so was my hope, by the erudite reader, as a mildly absurd, and therefore vaguely humorous idea. Perhaps not worth a full-on chuckle, but a smile as one scrolled past.


    I hope that clears things up.

    :lol: haha. Oh jesus bacon.
    I guess that finally puts that stupid E.B. White quote to rest.
    "Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it."

    I hope we can find money in the budget to make you the official Joke Analyzer.

    e: Unrelated, I found Megan's dad on Facebook, but can think of no non-creepy way to solicit information about his daughter. I think none exists.

    Speaking of pertinence;
    I found out Megan is teaching music at a local music store. I figure I'll just go there and pick up some necessary, music-related product (crate of guitar picks?) and run into her by "complete happenstance". This should lessen the stalking feel and make things totally uncreepy.
    At least I hope that's what a jury of my peers will think, if worse comes to worst.

    okay, i feel like i shouldn't even critique this because both of you are so much god damned better than me

    but, i would say that if you put that well defined point to her nose, i'd suggest a slight upturn instead of the direct angle that you made
