I continue to love this forum 150% as much as the comic.

I pronounce "Whom" like "bomb" because "hoom" sounds stupid. Whomp sounds stupid too, but less so.

Yeah, you're right, I forgot that 'to be' takes nominative case.

I think they should change the pronunciation of 'whom' to rhyme with 'bomb' so people stop thinking they sound more educated if they use it in all circumstances.

Well, whoever called it out first knows who they are and can now hang their head(s) in shame. I skimmed the rules once a million years ago and even I know to leave Larson out of here. "The Far Side" is to "The Simpsons" as "a beaten dead horse" is to...?

So the lesson here is that if we whine about a comic being like a far side, he'll punish us with a graph comic.

Remember when calling SMBC a hilarious one panel comic?

Remember when that time we yes

Zach's comic is not The Far Side, nor has he ever attempted to emulate The Far Side. I think you're having trouble distinguishing SMBC from The Far Side because they are both single panel comics, and they are both funny. There aren't that many single panel comics, and of those that exist, maybe three of them are funny. Just because Zach is successful should not give you the right to put him in your underdeveloped analytical crosshairs. It's not his fault Gary Larson came first, and it's not his fault that Gary Larson retired.

Why don't you try being funny? Try it. Let's see how far you get. Are you funny? Can you update consistently, every day of the week? Try it, I dare you. Not only that, but try drawing guest comics and ads for other sites in your 'spare time' after working a full time job at an agency like he does.

SMBC is original, creative, and really fucking funny. I don't see any similarities between its content and The Far Side's content at all. I think you're just confusing two hilarious one panel comics because that's the only other great one panel example that jumps to mind.

If you enjoy SMBC, it's not because its creator emulates someone. It's because you enjoy quality work and don't settle for puns and political snooze fests. And if you're too simple to distinguish good stuff from other good stuff, then I feel sorry for you.

In a way, it can be considered a compliment to be compared to someone so loved and talented. But at the same time, you should recognize the fact that Zach puts time and effort into his original jokes and art, and really stresses over its creations. You should recognize the fact that even though Gary Larson was talented and it's nice to be compared to someone like that, it can also be considered very rude.

You're not giving Zach the respect he deserves for being original; you're just being lazy and lumping him together with someone else with no real grounds for doing so.
