Shit, I boned the news!

By Gabe – April 20, 2002

Tycho told me that uploading news on a non strip day was tricky. I was all like "Yeah, okay whatever man.” Then I go and fuck it all up. When I made my last post all the news from Friday got bumped into the archive. You can see it all right here.

More Anonymous Fun!

Please note that this anonymous fun is in response to the anonymous fun posted earlier today.

I'm afraid that if I don't take an Aleve the tingling will go away.


Thank God it's Today!

Well it's Friday and you all know what that means, it's Love and Hate time! A brand new installment of everyone's favorite advice column staring my wife and an angry Semite is now available right here.

It's Strange

I have this uncontrollable urge to operate heavy machinery.

Regarding Wednesday's comic (which concerned the production of dubious promotional materials), an anonymous producer from an anonymous production company chimed in with the following:

Dear Lord!

I'm actually surprised that I'm still alive. I'm not referring to my well-publicized cold, which your well-wishing has made quite tolerable indeed. Well, that and Aleve, which (as it turns out!) contains high concentrations of goofballs. No, I'm talking about Taxes, that special time of year when the amorous avatar of our nation Uncle Sam gets that special gleam in his eye. I was not aware that one could pay their taxes in installments, I guess I just thought they sent six-legged robo-hounds to your house to prick you with their deadly tongues, which are also syringes. Don't mind me, it's the medicine talking. I do appreciate your indulgence with the late posts, once I feel better (and can stay awake all day) I'll cinch up the schedule again.

I Said God Damn

I don't know if they put goofballs in Aleve Cold and Sinus, or what, but I feel like a million dollars. It's like I'm floating high above the worries and cares of the world.

Beeg News!

Lucasarts' recent announcement of a long awaited follow-up to their classic WW2 flight sims is the kind of music that soothes the soul, makes me reminisce about the days of ol', etc. If you're going to be digging around in the attic, Lucasarts, why don't you make a new Full Throttle ame while you're up there?

I don't really have much to say today. I do want to drop some Penny Arcade updates on you though.

Caution: Ninjas

Many of you have written in with questions on a variety of subjects.

Warms my heart

Sweet Jesus! The response from young and old alike to my last update is overwhelming. Each time I refresh my mail I have another 50 messages. I am getting a lot of mail from guys my age waxing nostalgic about having to blow on carts to make them work and sticking cardboard in your NES. I have also gotten a few mails which really surprised me. I would like to share one such message with you now. Matt here is twelve years old. That means that when I was playing Super Mario Brothers 3 Matt hadn’t even been born yet. When Samurai Showdown hit my local arcade he was barely three years old. And yet…*sniff*…He…oh just read the e-mail:
