Alright, the page is still a little rough, but the new CHASON comic is up!

What's a buttfer? Let's see what a few webcomics personalities had to say, courtesy America's treasure, Phil Kahn:

Phil Kahn vs. William G

Phil: Hey Will

William: howdy

Phil: How's life on your side of the world

William: pretty darned good, to tell the truth. Could use a few hot chicks lying around the apartment, but I could say that anywhere. How about you?

Phil: I'm all right. Been looking all over the place trying to find a butfer. Do you know where I can get one?

William: Okay... I'll play along just for the amusement factor... "Gee Phil, I dont know. What is a butfer?"

Phil: It's for poopin, Will.

William: BWA HA HA

Phil: LOLZ

William: to the max

Phil: Damn
I was hoping you might actually fall for it.

William: dude, I teach kids and make webcomics. Childish is part of each and every day


It seems Mr. G was too clever for Kahn's capering. But would Mr. Campbell be? Let's listen in...

Phil Kahn vs. T Campbell

Phil: Howdy

T: Hey.

Phil: How're things?
In jollly ol' ingland.

T: Oh, pretty good. I think I'll be doing some traveling soon. See Scotland, Paris.

Phil: Oh cool

T: How you?

Phil: Oh I'm all right.
I've been looking all over the place for a butfer.
Do you know where I can get one?

T: What do you mean, a buffer?

Phil: No, no. A butfer.

T: I do not know what that is.

Phil: You don't know what a butfer is?

T: Never mind, wiseass. I just Googled it.

Phil: (F-WORD).

T: Search engines have killed the practical joke.


Well played gentlemen, well played.

So dear readers, what did we learn here? It's quite simple - webcomics authors are clearly more intelligent (or as WE like to say, "overtly bounteously perspicacious") than you vulgar masses.

Hey hey, sorry for the slightly late update. I managed to fall asleep in my chair last night.

June 9, 2006

YOHO, yes, it is 4AM.

I'm working on becoming nocturnal. I figure if I adjust to non-human hours I will have fewer problems being distracted by my (usually human) cohorts.

In other news, tomorrow's SMBC (GOOD GOD, TODAY'S VOTING REWARD) may hold the record for most words in the most confusing speech bubbling in history. If you've ever wanted to say to yourself "that comic would've been better if it took 17 panels instead of 1," now's your chance.

Speaking of failure, it looks like Inverloch is about to overtake us at Buzz. It's pretty awesome to be in competition with a comic that I enjoy. I mean, sure, her 500-something pages of epic high fantasy could never match the depth of a comic that was, for example, about puppies exploding out of PTERRORDACTYL, or an angry biker with a penchant for feminine hats, but the pacing is really excellent.

More importantly than all of this, we have had another victory in the fight against legitimate intelligent comedy. This from today's emails (IM names witheld to protect the innocent).

(Guy): were going to open mic tonight
(Guy): when you coming to my house?
(Girl): idk are you there?
(Guy): silly girl
(Guy): Im at work
(Girl): ok lol
(Girl): werd!
(Girl): what's up!?
(Guy): do you have a buttfer?
(Girl): ??? a what??
(Guy): I need one tonight
(Guy): do you have one?
(Guy): Im thinking about using it for a song
(Girl): a buttfer ?lol
(Guy): yeah?
(Guy): do you have one?
(Girl): whats a buttfer?
(Guy): fer poop'n!
(Girl): ewwww

God I love my readers.

In closing, according to my newer (and theoretically correcter) site tracker, I have something on the order of 13,000 unique IPs a day. This is a few thousand more than I expected, and a baker's dozen thousand more than I deserve. That said, welcome to all you stealth readers. Your secret is now exposed. We know whom you are.

Goodnight kids. See you in the mornfternoon...

Wooh! Civ almost destroyed me, but I managed to update on time.

Also, best IM conversation in history (sent to me from a reader):

(19:47:10) Nick: oh that reminds me kimmy
(19:47:16) Nick: do you have a butfer i could borrow?
(19:47:33) Kimmy: a butfer?
(19:47:35) Nick: yeah
(19:48:13) Nick: kimmy?
(19:48:36) Kimmy: a butfer? xD
(19:48:41) Nick: lol
(19:48:47) Nick: dont you have one?
(19:49:00) Nick: its okay if you dont have one
(19:49:24) Kimmy: WHat the heck are you talking about? What is a butfer?
(19:49:32) Nick: for poopin' !

Ahh, that's beautiful. You know, it's times like these that I really feel like I'm changing lives.

Also, I got a better site tracker, and it makes the bold claim that I have 13k unique IPs per day. This is about 3k more than I expected. So, from now on I will draw 13,000 visitor quality strips, rather than that 10k unique IP crap I'd been drawing.
