No, not from me.
Looking For Group today has showed how they can step up to the stage and bring us the funny.
I ain’t gonna blow the surprise punchline from that comic, but let me say that I think it takes genius to go out into the game, take one of the tiredest, most overdone sad-ass concepts from the forums, and just seize it and make it fresh, new, and funny.
Yes, Youtube used the same concept as the foundation for their April Fool’s gag, but this just takes it to the next level.
Way to go, Blind Ferret.
That’s right, all of you wonderful, wonderful people!
The greatest WoW comic in all of existence (and yes, I know, that other one is awesome, and this other one is pretty damn good too) is alive!
Oh happy day, oh happy day. New episodes, oh happy day!
What’s that? You’ve never read The Scout Report?
Start from the beginning.
But make DAMN sure you take it slow, and read through the archives with care, savoring each one. Because when you’re done, you’re gonna cry for more.
I found it funny that the patch notes, at least for hunters, show a change that almost seem directly inspired by Scott Kurtz’s WoW comic Ding!.
Check it out. First, the comic in question that talks about Hunters.
And then, check out the patch notes, and specifically read the section about Hunter changes.
And I quote from the patch notes;
Instead of a rant, I’m going to bring a smile to your face.
I know I will.
Just follow the link, and smile.
You’re just gonna love this.
And a few strips later, we leave the sweet and cute and enter the realm of the wildly inappropriate, and yet hysterically funny.
SAdly, it’s the inappropriate one that’s WoW related.
Well, not playing, so much as ‘have written’ your song.
Bellwether of the awesome blog 4 Haelz has written what I think is a Grammy-worthy epic ballad proclaiming the triumph of all that is Feral…
I urge you to go forth and bask in the joy of… “Feralicious”.
I am working feverishly to find someone to sing this sucker, but somehow, I’m not finding a lot of volunteers. Dang it.
Oh, and speaking of basking in the joy, a whole bunch of great bloggers have mentioned a WoW webcomic I’d never heard of before… and reading the archives brought me untold joy. What an awesome hunter.
Okay, anything that makes me laugh in delight at the sheer evil is full of win, as far as I’m concerned. Please go blow a few minutes checking out The Scout Report. I’m serious, it’s amazing. And thank you to Ratshag for being the first this weekend to slap me about the head and shoulders with it’s greatness.
Yeah, since I’m all commercial and everything these days, I thought I’d rip off the thin veneer of original thought that I’ve used to conceal my hard, grasping, greedy corporate heart, and blatantly plug someone for cash.
Go read the latest Looking For Group. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
Every time you click that link, 15 billion dollars and 72 cents is deposited into my secret offshore account.
And on another note…
“Kill yourself and roll a Rogue. We’ll wait.”
Just a short one here, as it’s the end of the weekend and I spent all my time to this point living in Karazhan… and now I gotta pay the piper. Time to do all the honeydo chores…
Although sad to say, I’ve got plenty of material for tomorrows posts :(
Thanks to the mighty Daak, he pointed me to a hilarious WoW comic that I’m sure most of you already have seen, but I just had to share…
If you like the funny, go and treat yourself to the brilliant “Hammer of Grammar“.
No. Seriously. Go now. It’s okay, I’ll wait.
