Some people just don't know when to shut up.

Oh wow XD Well, I need to get a list like that for some conversations which happen where I work...

Nice list!

I should keep one.

I treat my friends to conversations nearly as bad as that.

I use the word "nearly" because my bowel movements have never been "Shaped like M"

And im really curious to what the "M" word is.

disturbed! >.<

I have a boss that's like that. D: It's horrible to hear her go about 'how her bathroom time was like heaven' each day.

My that list is mostly incredibly disturbing. Perhaps even more so than the comic itself.

No, scratch that, superpower? Eeewwww.

Holy shit.

C wut I did thar?

haha I feel bad for that man.

Also, his dated seem to be going backwards. I can only assume in your universe everyone is Merlin.

CitySquirrel:

Maybe the shit was SHAPED LIKE MERLIN.

Actually it's probably just in euro-style, date goes Day-Month-Year over there, instead of Month-Day-Year like here.

Ah, potty humour.
We like it sophisticated at the Escapist folks! :D

Holy crap (haah) , i think i just got what that M was for: Mario.
At least that's my guess, but it's quite hard to read the small print on the second last picture-box-thingy.
Anyways, now imagine it!
And also, quite funny, mildly disturbing.

My sister is the same way.

Outright Villainy:

Poop humor has been around since forever. Case in Point:

from Mozarts Wikipedia page

He enjoyed billiards and dancing (see Mozart and dance), and kept pets: a canary, a starling, a dog, and also a horse for recreational riding.[69] He had a fondness for scatological humor, which is preserved in his surviving letters, notably those written to his cousin Maria Anna Thekla Mozart around 1777-1778, but also in his correspondence with his sister and parents[70] (for an example, see Bölzlschiessen). Mozart even wrote scatological music, a series of canons (Leck mich im Arsch, Difficile lectu, Bona nox) that he sang with his friends.

Making this trope, older than the enlightenment.

Also, I found Erin oddly cute in this. Third panel, taking off her backpack.

The urge to make poop jokes is primal...
I never said we shouldn't make them!

Maybe every time she says that, you can start singing:

Your dates go month-day-year?! You just blew my mind...

Dear lords it was so bad you had to redact it?

Madagascar.

To everyone who doesn't know, the M word is Mario. Her poo was shaped like Mario. The panel before the last one has a zoomed out version of the list so if you squint you can see it says Mario or Maria, but seeing as how this is critical miss, I say Mario

Mario - it says so on the second-last panel, in the 20-20 vision edition :P

The horror...the horror :(

XD She's there 3 times. that seems a little low. maybe he has another book just for stout.

- Goes off to produce one of his own dreaded conversation lists. -

In all honesty, I was hoping for something that ripped Kinect apart but I laughed when I saw the man crouching and hearing all that obscene stuff. Terrific Critical Miss.

OK, so we're seeing some humanity from the, I'm sorry, I have to say it, cow. I think that's probably a good thing, because the webcomics with jokes coming out of unlikable characters has been done to death, especially with a gaming theme...

Boy oh boy, though, of all the ways to make that clear, you needed to pick that one. Funny stuff.

I could come up with many conversations which could probably top that list...unfortuantely.

also, ratings arctic monkeys reference :)

That just seemed like a typical student conversation. People always talked about poop whenever it came to dinner time. Much in the same way that the cat always uses the litter box when your eating.

What's sad about this is that Mr. ComicAuthorGrey actually does this to me.
Repeatedly.

:(

I thought of that, but it still skips around in time. Though maybe they are being ranked by how bad they are not date. And that would be pretty bad.

That was another really great one. Keep it up.

Funnily enough I got the idea from a supervisor at the old call centre I worked at when I was like 17.

She had to sit in on my calls for most of the day and about half way through (we didn't get many calls) she starts earnestly talking about the fact the company paid for her colonic irrigations. Then she started talking about her latest colonic irrigation. In horrific detail. I was too repulsed (and too afraid of getting fired) to do anything but -_-

Ok, now i don't like your main character any more or think she couls be a nice interesting person to follow.

I have to say the whole comic goes into i direction i really hadn't hoped or wished for.
I thougth it would go beyound the blood and potty humor that's so typical for many videogame themed webcomics.

Sadly it isn't.

Wow, this really brings me back... like to THE MIDDLE AGES!!! When every joke was about either Poop or Farts, and emptying a Chamber-pot upon unsuspecting passer-by's was considered high-class Entertainment 0:
But Hell... if the Victorians with all their stuck-up puritanism still practiced them, why shouldn't we?

...I'm curious though as to WHAT THE HELL she Eats for it to classify as a Superpower 0.Ô?

Great so the comic has resorted to toilet humour, literally now.

I was enjoying the comic at the start but the last 4 or 5 haven't even cracked a smile. Hope it gets better as I think the comic has potential.

Wow.... giving a female character a potty mouth is a... bold move, I suppose. Kinda jarring, though...

I dunno, I just haven't encountered my female friends talk about bowel movements to any great extent! :P

The dialogue should be swopped around, I guess... or you should just bite the bullet and turn her into a dude and get it over with.
