Were the hell is Farber?

Postby Fishfu on Thu Jan 06, 2005 7:29 pm

WHERE THE FUCKING HELL IS FARBER?!!!

He just gets up and leaves without telling us anything. MiH is like crack to me. And I have been deprived of my crack for too long. It's becoming all cold. Someone please help me.

I think Farber died.
I'm sorry Maw. I didn't means ta gets Auntie Suzie pregnant again.

what, you didn't get the memo? he was murdered on the 27th of December. If you listen to that album that all of the young kids are listening to backwards, you can clearly hear "Farber is dead" and "I killed Farber". Supposedly he was gunned down by two quarters or some sort of dog in the "hood".

You mean Farber hasn't been around?!?

Wow, I don't think anyone else noticed. Thanks for bringing the observation up, man; you've probably saved a few lives!

Were, where, Stephen its one letter stop being a little turd about it. Maybe the H had been disconected from the keyboard and then suddenly connected when he typed hell.

Think about it.

Good work, FCL.

You really think so? I just used it because I didn't think you were worth typing out "FunnyComic Lover" for.

So, every time somebody appears and wonders what happened to Farber (since he pretty much appears to have vanished from the face of the earth), everybody leaps up and makes sarcastic abusive comments about the person.

But does anybody actually have anything worthwhile to say? Anyone tried e-mailing him? Does anyone know if he'll be back?

This is a good question. HAS anyone tried to contact him? he lists his AIM as well as his email addy in his profile. anyone tried the former, if not the latter? my grief is that this is the second time he has left without saying a word, which, to me, is really bad PR. the "what if's" abound: what if he ran out of material? what if he's too busy? what if he just doesn't care? i guess only he could answer the last two. as a long-time MiH reader (though new poster), I must admit that I have seen a sharp drop in quality, so my money is on the first. now this doesn't mean that the comic is finished - far from it. perhaps he saw the repetition in the strips, decided to re-charge the creative juices, and just come back when he feels that he reached his "second wind" (call it quality control). In response to your comment on "sarcastic abusive comments"... i think we're all just a bit wreckless not having a comic strip available every monday wednesday and friday, and decide to fill the time with such comments (hey, even i must admit i find some humour in them). I know since the comic's abrupt halt my weekly routine of MiH (M/W/F), Cat and Girl (T), etc. was broken - that's why i went to the posts.

I am reminded of when Brunching.com went off the air (a sad day, indeed!), my routine of checking that fantastic page was broken....

Ah, well, this post has gone on for long enough. Back to my music!

If either of you two had tried reading some of the other threads here, you may just have read this, which is about as much as anyone here knows (or is willing to say).

Er, the more I think about that, the funnier it becomes. I personally suspect the finger that was about to hit the H key suddenly became something shorter when he was about to type it, like say a carrot or maybe a miniature strange carrot that's short (like you get in tins), and then suddenly became a finger again when he typed "hell".

I asked him about it a long time time ago, at the beginning of when he stopped, and he said that he had stuff going on. I left it at that, I wasn't going to pry into his life, I am sure he had good reason, and didn't want to bother him, it was none of my business.

Anyways I just talked to him and for those who have not given up hope, its coming back. My guess is he was able to work through his troubles/issues, which I am glad about, and now he's able to start putting them up again. I never found out what exactly it was that was going on, but that's just because I wasn't going to pry into his life, like I mentioned above. Anyways I just wanted to let everyone know that it should be coming back soon, which makes me happy.

I emailed him many weeks ago and he never emailed me back. I feel sad and neglected. Like a lonely taco-burrito sandwhich.

HAHAHA, what an amazing theory, is that what happened fishfu, had your finger become like the the tinned carrot, "strange and miniature" and is it now, a finger again? Like the normal carrot in comparrison with the tinned ones.

I eagerly await an answer about this possibilty of a tinned carrot finger.
