I was sold after you said "James Earl Jones".

That game would kick ass.

Great comic, but hell, I can't think of the cake as male!

"I find your lack of cake disturbing."

Great strip!

Brilliant :) Not really much more to say.

jackanderson:
Loved it. Not much more to say.

So I'm going to guess that you're still sulking from nobody reading your sidebar last strip, Shamus? If it makes you feel better, I read it!

Thank you. I've been with a grief councilor and I think I'm nearly over it now.

Will you be ready to conduct more SCIENCE soon then?

Nicely diverted punchline. It takes a lot of talent to make that old chestnut funny again.

:o "This space intentionally left blank?" Evil!

Fredrikorex:
hmm where is the cakes brain?

I dont trust things without brains...

What are you? A zombie?

Also, the cake is a disingenuous fabrication of GLaDOS based on deception to try and give the test subjects a false hope.

tl:dr The cake is a lie. Hur Dur Dur!

That phrase wouldn't even make grammatical sense within that context, the falsehoods being that which the cake speaks of. The proper thing to say would be "The cake is lying."

Babe Newell. Imagine the fatness.

SORRY MISTER NEWELL PLEASE DON'T ADD ANOTHER WEEK TO THE RELEASE DATE OF EPISODE THREE YOU'RE REALLY SLIM

taht cake is brilient

This cake is a liAR.

:)

Hey, I read the side sidebar too!

Also, I just came in from a long trip and somehow I didn't see it coming. Though, even if I did - good strip. Who knew a decent joke could still be squeezed out of that cake.

the cake is a douche
waiting for people to say it
...

the companion cube couldnt make it
because you killed him

If it helps, I read the last one as well.

And I guess you could say that this comic *puts on sunglasses* takes the cake.

Dude, I love you. This has made my day awesome.

its a cyborg with solar panels powered by its candle.

A burning intellect, you could say.

Wait, what? I read the sidebar. Why does he think no one read the sidebar?

Because if you read the comments from last comic lots of people express excitement in the Companion Cube being interviewed. Despite the tiny paragraph next to the comic saying he won't be here.

Apparently a small paragraph consisting of 3-4 sentences kicks in the "tl;dr" response in people.

From now on, whenever I replay Portal, I will also imagine that the Cake's lines are spoken by James Earl Jones.

"They told me there would be cake, but there is none. The cake is a lie" - Sten [ Dragon Age: Origins ]

All I can say about this. Entertaining Pixel though! I wonder if we do get any additional badges for reading all of the pixels so far!

I'm having a hard time believing that cake jokes can actually still be funny.

A liar cake... Wow... Way to take it one notch higher... :P

*thumbsup*

Bill_Stanbrook:
So, the cake is not only a lie, it's also a liar.

Although, the idea of cake based puzzles is strangely appealing.

NO! You shouldn't have said it! Breen stopped Metro from saying it because it played right into the Cake's hands (Candles? Icing?)! And then you go and say it yourself...

You should be ashamed. No cake for you... :P

The day this stops being posted on The Escapist, is the day I stop visiting.

I love this webcomic! XD

Always, always makes me laugh my ass off!

I couldn't help but imagine how it would look if my voice was done by james earl jones, imagine...and by who would the cube be voiced?

That was actually genius. And I would so play that game. I mean, who could resist 'cake based puzzles'

this one was really funny =) esp the end
James Earl Jones ftw

An interview with the most memorable piece of Valve's classic Portal.

Shamus, It's gotta be done.

Oh man, your quip had me in tiers.

Thank you. I've been with a grief councilor and I think I'm nearly over it now.

Please don't feel too badly about it. Your sidebars are like...like the hotwings in Hooters, or the articles in Playboy. Just imagine the thousands of gamers who read this saying, "Stolen Pixels? I...uh...read it for the sidebar. Yeah...thought-provoking commentary, that..."

Then they sneak out and read it on their laptops in private. So, basically, you're Hugh Hefner.

Fredrikorex:
hmm where is the cakes brain?

I dont trust things without brains...

Tonight you shall be hugged by my army of Jelly Fish... as long as you go into the water!

Andronicus:
The sweet, baked dessert is an outright fabrication!

Doesn't quite roll off the tongue as well, but it's about time we had a bit of a change. Good comic. I'm disappointed the CC couldn't be with us. :( Maybe next week?

That oversized pastry is quite the illegitimate truth!

Nope, that one's no good either. For a couple reasons actually.

Well besides the fact that the companion cube got incinerated which caused to die TO DEATH during your homicidal quest for this delicious cake, you also murdered GlaDos so she couldn't make more companion cubes, so there can't be an interview.
