    that is utterly fascinating.

    2012 is going to be the year Khoo becomes the breakout star from Penny Arcade.

    I saw him tweeting about the server load while this stuff was going on.

    Nobody likes me but that's okay. I'm used to it.

    This was an awesome read, seconding the "My Kingdom for a Khoo Stuff #2" sentiment.

    I'm surprised to not see this posted anywhere here (maybe I missed it), but Khoo is doing an AMA:

    I could read that shit all damn day. Is it wrong that the actual comic produced on PA doesn't really interest me that much but everything else (especially PA:TS) is just completely and utterly fascinating to me. I chalk this all up to the genius of Khoo of khoourse.

    Is it weird that I find Khoo to be an incredibly sexy dude? I have a tremendous girl boner for him.

    I mean, uh, fascinating information! Yeah...

    There's also this:
    [–]sg_luke 1 point 3 hours ago
    Robert, as an Investment industry professional, I would love to subtly show off my gamer pride by wearing more First Party clothes. Can we ever expect to see button down shirts, ties, cufflinks, or even that FP coat you sometimes wear on PATV? Also, where are the kid clothes? I would LOVE to dress up my kid in PA gear. Instead I have to settle for Woot as the closest thing.

    2012 will be the year of First Party. REMEMBER THIS REPLY.
    For kids clothes, we are thinking about it... definitely.

    I've been salivating over those FP jackets since they first made an appearance.

    Theme park was mentioned in there somewhere as a crazy idea that was pitched to them which they turned down.

    I wonder if that's related to this:

    Robert Khoo is awesome. Apparently, N-Control's new PR guy is awesome too, by the looks of it. I really hope something really positive comes from these two men, perhaps working together. After all, the Avenger and Child's Play seem perfect for each other.

    Edit: Oh damn, in one of those AMA's is a post about how he's been talking to Jamie at CP, and Jamie replied saying they are already working this angle.

    This is why I love this company, and wish I could do more. CP was actually one of the 3 charities we chose to work with this year due to most of us in the company being gamers, so we're hosting a local Dominion tournament to raise funds.

    I was using the phrase badposter with love! Though maybe it's only on the Merch Industrial forum that was a compliment.

    Do it at pax, go with. "My fiance wants a signed photo of you, but I'm afraid she'd rape you if she were here right now so in the interests of me staying engaged I am acting as her proxy... for the signed picture...not the raping..."

    I also find the behind the scenes stuff to be oddly fascinating and it makes me glad that the spotlight gets shared in the office rather than Mike and Jerry hogging it. That's what makes this such a great company is that it's all about everyone and not just the "faces" of the company. Everyone and everything that makes up Penny Arcade contributes to its overall awesomeness, from the charity folks to the design team to the merch warehouse and shipping folks. All are recognized.

    By the by, if Penny Arcade is going public I want in on the IPO.

    Unfortunately I don't see many reasons for Penny Arcade to need to raise that kind of expansion capital, and if they offered an IPO we would not likely get to see any of that because we don't have the kind of access required, well most of us, I'm sure there are some PA people with Series 7 licenses running about. A DPO would be more favorable to fans owning a piece of Penny Arcade without having to go through the secondary markets and pay a markup.
