I am not sure I get the joke (besides "Reality TV is stupid"). We are all in a lab?

Personally, I think that if they were watching him via hidden camera instead, it would give it a seriously meta edge.

Anyhoo, how bout those webcomics?

The lab is a generic setup for jokes that satirise social behaviour in scientifically-minded webcomics.

Listen, the joke is that you are in an expiriment, and YOU are the only one who watches reality TV. This implies that you are seriously screwed up.

(Please either think about these jokes beforehand, or... or go to school or something, your critical thinking skills are slightly lacking.)

i feel like i have stepped in to a bizarro mirror world where it's the regulars sperging about how the comic isn't funny while the chatboxers insist it's just a joke


the weirdest part is that the regulars are still right

They're not mutually exclusive, y'know.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

Please either think about not getting offended over something that literally cannot harm you in any way or go to school or something, your skin is ridiculously thin.

I like picking fights with Astrogirl as much as the next guy*, but I think it's reasonable to expect some level of courtesy out of the riffraff that show up here to broadcast their opinions about stuff.

*This is a lie. I have things I want to get done this month.

In Astro's defense this person seems pretty offended over a pretty innocuous thing. Though personally I find the best way to deal with douches like that is just ignore them. Don't feed the trolls; it'll only lead to them burrowing into your tent to steal your food.*

*Trolls are like a kind of raccoon, right?
