EGS Strip Slaying

Postby SSj5Bob on Thu Jun 14, 2007 5:07 am

For those who are unfamilliar with strip slaying it is the art of changing dialogue and making edits to comics. Here is mine, I was bored.

If you are referring specifically to the "it's over 9000" bit, it's a DragonBall Z reference; when Vegeta analyses the power level of (was it Gohan?) he finds it to be extraordinarily large, using that particular exclamation to voice his incredulity. At least, in the English translation he did, in the original, not so much.

If you are worried about the rest, well.. I have no idea either, so... :oops:

From what I saw from that scene, I'd say it was Goku.

ANd Tricia, if it makes you feel better, I don't understand the rest either.

That's the point. The randomness makes it funny, it's not supposed to make sense.

Well, the Magical Mystery Tour is a fantastic Beatles album, and one of the songs from it. In fact he's using one of the lines there.

...randomness like that isn't funny. It's stupid.

It's time people learned that.

Yes, I know. But why is that funny?

I know this. And that was funny maybe for the first couple of e-mails.

And everyone wants to kill their alarm and park in the gym.
Uh...no.

I know humor is subjective...but I really can't stand the whole "random things put together = hilarious" fad that seems to be plaguing the internet.

Two things:
1. Never watch Monty Python's Flying Circus.
2. If you don't find this sort of humour funny, why keep checking the thread?

1) Python actually makes sense. Its own sort of sense...but it makes sense. It's not just a bunch of random phrases thrown together haphazardly.
2) In hopes that something that actually makes sense will be posted.

That's an opinion, and I'm really happy that you have it. However, it's only an opinion. Saying "it's time people learned that" sounds like you want everyone to have your opinion, and that annoys me.

All in all some of these made me smile, though I agree with Tricia. They're only random for random's sake. I don't find it lolfunny. XP I could probably manage one, but this sort of thing's too restrictive for my tastes. ^^

A-ha. A common, yet fatal flaw in humor. Despite what many may think, randomness does not inherently equal funny.

But properly proportioned, it can be hilarious. The Best examples I can think of are Family Guy and Spider & Scorpion!

personally I think family guy lays it a little thick and sometimes really has no plot (pretty sure I remember seeing one like that) but that is just my opinion, and there are plenty of people that think family guys balances randomness and well other stuff well. While others would love to have a show dedicated to complete randomness (there have been many, which kinda proves my point).

Personally, I thought the first one was hilarious. The second one was just... wierd. The third one: :-| The fourth one I could follow, but it just kind of made me go "meh." And for some reason, I will never get over the "saving Chicago" joke that seems to crop up everywhere I go. I have no idea where it's originally from, but I still like it.

Randomness in and of itself is not funny. No matter how many times you say "monkey," it still won't be funny when used in the wrong context. Structure within that randomness is what makes things funny.

Try getting your friends to read a random strip somewhere in the middle of the story arc where they're at the party. They'll think it's completely random, but you might still get a laugh because of the way it's structured.

I thought the first comic in this thread, personally, was hilarious. It was random, but it loosely made sense and seeing the characters in such an unordinary situation was humorous in and of itself.

I didn't really like the second one. It was a bunch of "do anything for a laugh" jokes that didn't really have any main plotline and a random 4Chan reference thrown in the mix to make it seem "edgy."

And that, kids, is Uyersuyer's rant of the day. You may call me Biff. I am going to bed.
