Still waiting for people to explain what joke was made here...

Macgyvercas:
Oi! I was promised lesbians! Now deliver, damnit!

*slams fist

But yeah, if there's a joke, I don't get it.

You two aren't the only ones.

Someone, please explain in clear, concise language for dummies. I am fucking lost. I have looked at everything, from the magazine that says Jason Statham and gives dick-sucking tips to the shelf with Knuckles, Bowser, and what I think is a special toy? I've looked through everything and I'm completely missing something. Is it a reference or what?

And yes, I admittedly saw "Lesbians" and clicked. It was like an impulse reaction. If you want someone to read something, title it "Lesbian" and no matter what it's about, they'll read it.

Oh.

Oh!

I guess I got it subconsciously and didn't realize it...

Hence the answer to the second question..."When I do it, it's satire".

That came out of nowhere...

Not sure if it is parody of randomly making your characters lesbians to increase traffic (and fan art) or playing it straight unironically.

Oh bravo sir /applause

they are not lesbians, he is parodying all the misleading article titles that the escapist uses....i think.

Cap'n Ninja:
I spotted a much subtler dick joke in the last panel. Can anyone else?

Also, I found this strip highly amusing.

Oh did you mean on the poster? Yeah I had to enlarge a few times but I couldn't read the bottom right one clearly.

Vrach:
Aye, I guessed, was just unsure with the whole internet text vs. tone of message thing. Also, cheers for a new word :P

It's also not like I should expect everyone to know my views, either. I've commented a few times, but I ignored the spiders one, so I didn't comment there. And anyway, it's not a given someone will notice the trend even if they've read every thread I've commented in. ;)

Just make sure you spell it right. It's facetious. I screwed up the first time (and only noticed reading your quote....LOL)

Oh hi, Escapist.
Yup.

Queen Michael:

I can't. What is it?

On the vouge magazine, in the cornor it say "7 tips on how to look good latin dick". I dont get it but its there.

I was under the impression that it was baitin dick not latin dick... you gelatinous hambeast.

And I'm fairly sure it says EATIN' DICK - and I have glasses, so I win. (also mine makes the most sense - ? tips on how to look good eatin' dick)

I still don't get the main joke, maybe I'm just slow :S

Yep, noticed while googling it up - also Mozilla lit it up when I quoted ya :P

Took me a few moments, but I see what you did there.
Very good.

Ah, well... I had figured that out, but I thought there was something more...something deeper *Inception soundtrack*

Damnit! I've been had!
Well done.

I SO want that issue of Vogue.
I don't CARE if it's shopped, I want it! :D

I lesbians this thread

Why does she have mutton chops?

I came expecting something funny.

If it is about the misleading Escapist titles; yeah, that might've worked if this wasn't ON the Escapist.

Well then I'm wierd because I clicked on it because it was Critical Miss.

Heh heh, I like this one. Very subtle.

I thought at first the words that were driving trafic were 'gelatinous hambeast'. Someone get Pee Wee Herman in here!

This was one comic where you almost had to read writers comments to get the joke.

To answer your questions:

"No, neither of them," and "it's satire when I do it."

Once you read that, it suddenly makes a lot more sense. Honestly, I figured out what the second question was supposed to be first and the first one second.

...and now I've got AWOLNATION's "Sail" stuck in my head...

Well played, sirs, well played.

Just in case you haven't noticed, when the strip was posted the 4th panel was missing.

You know, the one where the two of them start passionately making out on top of the desk.

Please fix.

You can't just say that and not deliver!

YOU CAN'T JUST SAY THAT YOU ****HEAD ****!!!!!!

Greyah:
For some reason, I initially thought it would be about Scott Pilgrim. Still, quite funny as always.

I knew I wasn't the only one who thought of Scott Pilgrim

I shall assume that the answer "No, neither of them" is referring to questions about the sexuality of the two women featured in today's strip, in reference to them being of a same-gender preference.

This actually answers a question I have lately been wrestling (figuratively) with in regards to the relationship between Erin and Mol (The red-head as featured in the last strip)

However, this does still leave Mol's preference up for debate and interpretation.

That was incredibly evil of you, tricking me into a comic article that most clearly was not about lesbians, with that provocative title.

Also, yes. I got the point of the comic.

I also demand this in compensation for such, Critical Miss!
Sad Panda

That kind of humour is part of the reason i like Critical Miss so much. Nice one.
But i think you forgot something, or did you already murder the goat? You know, it's mandatory!

(Because sarcasm isn't always possible to be read: i don't realy think this one will collect to much publicity, but from the escapist readers themselves, so technically you are skipping step 3, which is ok ;)

I don't know what a gelatinous hambeast is, but it sounds delicious.

Oh, NOW I get it. Took a me a minute and a few rereads.

I am in lesbians with this comic.

Vrach:

It didn't turn read until after I clicked "Send," and by then, I was like, "screw it." XD

Macgyvercas:

'Use top 10 words browsed on the net to attract Audience)

'Uses Lesbians as title'

'Attracts audience'

In the under-explanation it said.

'Making out'

on top of

'Skyrim'

in

'Minecraft'

Don't forget LEAKED.

I think the fact that it's on the Escapist enhances the beauty of the comic, but hey, different strokes.

It was the same way with me though. I clicked the link when I saw a new Miss was up and I was pretty lost for a good minute. Then I went "ooohhhhhh!", then chuckled like an idiot.
