    Really like the detail of Tycho 'picking' the lock to get in there. We had a bathroom door in the house I grew up in that you could open the same way

    Probably why I've been playing and enjoying Ubisoft games for 10 years. They generally don't screw with a formula that works. :)

    Now I feel like I too have seen "the new Ghost Recon shit".

    Also Tycho's emotional arc in this strip is really something else.

    I like to see someone calling out the Taco Bell thing... I mean... I have felt alone for so long, and now Gabe and I are brethren.

    I like the "for a bad time call" and then the "it's bad" associated with it.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    I mean it's a generally accepted thing that people have known and discussed for years! Not really much of a calling out.

    I mean taco bell is what you see is what you get. I mean if you don't what you're getting from the bell that's on you.

    Hey man, I love those various combinations of the same ingredients. Sometimes they come out with a new combo that just works.

    And when the don't that CGC is always a good treat.

    I will say though the chicken fried taco shell made me sick, like literally vomitting sick. Only thing from the bell that ever destroyed me like that.

    That is quite unfortunate.

    I tried it and it was basically fine but not worth buying over other things on the menu.

    But also I'm not surprised that someone might have gotten sick.

    I didn't even notice at first that this was a public restroom.

    With all respect to Tycho, this is a comic in which the Visual portion pretty much carries the gag while the written joke is almost inconsequential. So much fun goofy detail in each panel. It really doesn't matter what they are talking about. Fun to have comics like this every so often.

    And not just Taco Bell, but Mexican (really, Tex-Mex) food in general:

    (skip to 6:00 in since the embeds don't understand start times)


    And that joke was probably old THEN.

    I’m not sure what’s weirder, Tycho breaking into the bathroom to talk about Ghost Recon or Gabe being totally apathetic about it

    Even so, from what I've seen this looks and feel exactly the same as the previous game. It's even got the same plot, only they've swapped out the drug barons with some army guy and his drone factory. If you're going to release it so soon after the last game and not dramatically change or tweak things, then what's the point?

    Those scuffs on the knob... you know he barges in there regularly. lol

    there is a crowd of people in the background of panel 1, so maybe work? or someplace else?

    Took me a sec to realise what he had been doing with the screwdriver.

  • OhkaBakaOhkaBaka Registered User new member
    Clearly I don't discuss Taco Bell's menu enough with strangers.

    ....

    Nope... I think this is the appropriate amount.

  • MarcinMNMarcinMN Registered User regular
    Tycho has been guilty of this behavior in the past.

    Honestly gabe really is at fault for this bathroom behavior, if he wasn't a twitter shitter Tycho wouldn't know where to find him.

    I like the possibility that Gabe is citing Taco Bell because that's the reason he's on the toilet in the first place.

    I found that tilting it doesn't work very well, and once I started jerking it, I got much better results.

    And it's even more apathetic if you consider Tycho probably would have taken a bit to get it open with the screwdriver. He's very calm for someone who had an unknown person banging on his doorknob.

  • PreacherPreacher Registered User regular
    He probably looked up "Recent REI sponsorship" and was well aware of what Tycho was coming in about.

    When I first heard about Nacho Fries, I wondered if they were secretly made of tortilla or something. But no, they're actually potato. A totally new ingredient!

    Which I guess makes them Child of Light?

    I feel like this video is relevant to the discussion on this comic. Plus, I think it's funny. :)

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.
