Expand Not Funny, And Then Funny

Webcomics have been around for a great while now, but in more recent years have become popular with the creation of gaming webcomics. The sad part though is that none of them are funny. This is certainly credited to the fact that if any of them were actually entertaining, they wouldn't exist on a medium that costs nothing to publish on, and as a result wouldn't be "webcomics" (one word, apparently).

Yesterday, Ben Croshaw (someone who is funny) put perfectly into words and a short video my feelings for these webcomics. If you're actually planning on watching the video (which I'd wager that half my readers (all 4 of you) will not), then you should know some history to enjoy it better. This awful piece of shit webcomic that has never been funny decided to try out a serious plot line (ref. 1, ref. 2). Armed with that knowledge, I present to you:

Zero Punctuation: Webcomics.

So, even if you didn't watch the video, the gist of it is that anyone can make a webcomic, they're not funny, and should you try yourself to create one, Ben offer's his advice: "So, your gaming web package comic is complete. All that's left to do is gather it altogether and throw it in a fucking bin, because you're a talentless cultural pollutant who deserve to suffocate to death on a bag of porridge." I mean even this parody, albeit *EXTREMELY* distasteful, has more humor in it than the entirety of the ctrlaltdel, penny arcade, and vgcatz archives combined.

Also, I'm going to the pool tomorrow.
