[2012-May-11] You dun goofed

Postby Spaceguy5 » Fri May 11, 2012 4:06 am

What happen? D'=

I visited the site like I do 10 times every night, and there was this silly comic about growling aminals and fonts.

But I visited again a few minutes later, and now we have a silly graph joke (which makes just a little less sense than the aminal comic)? D'=

Hey, that reminds me of a Far Side cartoon.
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.

From Zach's Twitter:

Geeks. It's been brought to my attention by a few of you that today's strip is a looooot like an old far side strip. I'm gonna replace it.
So, if you want it, better save it!

To be fair, it's a different punch line.

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.
