[2011-Nov-12] Grave spinning

This same idea of spinning in graves generating power was also used in Dresden Codak's Dark Science:

Another great comic!

When I saw the words "Spinning in their graves" and the response "Precisely," I knew exactly where this was going.

It's a pretty classic joke. You may have noticed that Zach put his own dramatic spin on it as well?
I doubt you did, since you're too busy pointing out that you've seen it before. Gratz.

I suck and am too lazy to read the first post in this thread. That's an impressive amount of lazy but you know how it is when you have porn to look at.

Pretty sure this joke has also been done by everyone who has ever heard of a generator before.

Wouldn't it be ironic* if Zach set up a system so that every time somebody visits the forum to complain he gets some money.
I will call this system "ads."


*this is an acceptable use of the word and I will cut anyone who says different.
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.

I've never heard this joke before.
That said, I once again think that Zach considers his readers idiots.
Panels 3, 5, 6 are unnecessary. 2 and 4 could be combined. Even the last isn't necessary, but I accept it as a conclusion to the comic.

Weird, Aaron Diaz doesn't seem to think he's been copied. Also you guys are pretty strict when it comes to what constitutes an original idea, that's not really how creativity works, nor should it.

This and the buttering cats and dropping them off a cliff thing are two of my favourite alternative energy creating schemes.

This comic sounds suspiciously similar to one that was posted earlier on Dresden Codak. The whole harvesting energy from famous figures by perpetuating outrages scheme.
