Penny Arcade...
« on: 26 Jan 2005, 10:22 »

Penny Arcade has filed for the "rights in perpetuity to any and all humorous comic interpretations and/or situations arising or inferred from the electronic entertainment industry and/or the products thereof."

This apparently affects http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com">CTRL+ALT+DEL, http://www.vgcats.com">VG Cats, and http://www.pvponline.com">PvP, which happen to be 3 of my favorite comics.  Somehow I feel like theres something wrong here.  How can you have the rights a subject matter?  You can't have the rights to write love songs, or to draw pretty pictures, so I don't understand how they can have all the rights to make fun of videogames through comics.

From today on, I will be boycotting Penny Arcade, due to their being the Man.

They're not even that similar. So they both did a joke about the dealer guy in RE4. Each strip has a completely different premise.

The "joke/news" made the effect of a bomb in the CAD forum.
+100 reply thread in about an hour, with more than 1600 views.

I hope PA won't get thousands of hate mails by people who took it seriously.

I feel things about stuff. You should make note of this.

That's pretty funny, though.

I feel things for stuff.  I still am not why I get called Filcher so much, it isn't my name.

This was damned funny.

I clicked on this thread, and I was hoping to dear god that the first post would be about how funny this joke was.

I must lower my expectations of people once again.

Sorry about that.  I wasn't really paying too much attention to it, and I saw it first on Ctrl+Alt+Del's site.  I was just a wee bit confused.

funny joke though.

even though it made me look like an ass.

It's okay to look dumb every so often. What I'm wondering is how many other people didn't get it and still haven't gotten it. What if they all boycotted PA? This would be great! Free comic fodder for Gabe and Tycho!!
