And what’s the deal with that airship food?
Oh wow…*LOL* Brought up the page, left for a few minutes, came back and posted a comment before refreshing. You beat me to the punchline.
“And what’s the deal with airship food?“
1d4caltrop is derp. Derp de derp.
I would also like to take a moment to note, for the record, that I am not, repeat NOT, Carlos Mencia, though I can understand how one might reasonably reach that conclusion given the present circumstances.
I SO know where you got your name! Those things suck to step on!
See, Humans eat like this.
Wood elves eat like thisssss.
Baby steps, Gravedust. Fifty years previous, comedians like this guy could only get work if they performed in woodface, as humans did in their “wandering minstrelsy” shows.
Actually, the first thing that came to mind reading this comic (other than, fuuuuck, Syr’nj is gonna get racisted hard) was Otto von Chriek from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series. He’s a vampire.
In “Thud!” Vimes, commander of the Watch, has a ton of protesters at the idea that the Watch might hire a vampire. But Otto, a camerman for the Times, is just there hanging out and taking pictures. Paraphrased, Vimes asks “They don’t seem to protest against you” and Otto replies “Well, I make them laugh.”
Pratchett then goes on to have Vimes theorize that if people are afraid of you, if you need to integrate into society, it’s better to come off as foppish and silly then feared. And as we’ve seen, people seem to not like wood elves all that much.
It certainly got Little Richard plenty of tail in the ’50s; he acted like a big ol’ fruitcake onstage, and as a result angry racist rednecks didn’t pay much attention to him hanging out with their daughters.
…This guy is clearly a douche, though. He steppin’ an’-a fetchin’ so’s massa let him stay in de house. Unless he turns out to be some kind of undercover spy for the Hidden Taproot Brotherhood or something, he’s sellin’ out like icewater on the Devil’s back porch.
I wonder if he’s actually Best’s daddy?
Son, I am disappoint.
Huh, that would actually be excellent characterisation.
Although I guess kind of overly convenient.
I was trying to come up with a clever “would a wood elf would some wood” kind of thing, but Bandit’s wood is distracting me.
Bandit IS cute like this. Personally, I would have gone with a different color stone for her necklace, but it frames her head very nicely, and the blue(?) dress works well with her skin tone. All she needs now are some tiny diamond earrings or something, and she’s ready for a night at the opera!
Yeah, I find that Bandit in a dress is so much more gorgeous than in that swimsuit issue.
on the colour of the stone, i think we should bear in mind that Bandit may not have had a chance to see what it looks like on her. I have a hunch that there’s a woman in a seat in front of them that still thinks she owns a necklace.
at intermission….”it must have fallen off some where around here… it looks almost exactly like the one on that little girl with the slightly pointy ears”
Thieves don’t wear earrings. They know just how easy they are to take…
My first thought at this comic was: “Bandit all dolled up? Heart.” Glad to hear I wasn’t alone.
Definitely not alone. Y’all can continue the comic without her, I’m taking her with me.
Don’t bogart the Bandit dude
Elves here live a long blinkin’ time, right? So maybe this does seem like crazy progress to them. “Great Ash! Was there a city there yesterday? And now we’re giving substandard racial comedy performances? How far we have all come!”
Hmmm…High society Bandit.
Methinks me likes it.
Bandit looks absolutely beautiful. We need excuses to dress her like this all the time.
“Bandit’s Dream Party!” With “Realistic lockpicks!”
So the weirdly prosaic and unfunny comedy is perhaps the first part of this comic to strain my suspension of disbelief. I wonder what that reaction implies.
I have the same reaction to Seinfeld.
In Gastonia, nature eats you!
Bandit dressed up? …or at least in an upwards direction.
But anyway, what’s the deal with observational comedy?
Good to see that Gravedust dressed up too. :p
Hey, she looks like a lady!
Gnome looks like a lady!
For a moment when I loaded up the page I thought that I’d managed to miss several updates and that either 1) something really weird had happened to either Syrnj, or that 2) something really weird had happened to Best. Then I thought maybe this guy was their collective son.
Heeeyyyy… this isn’t opera!
What the… You’re right, he said “opera” and this is clearly NOT an opera.
Do all elves look the same to you… You sir, are a bigot. :-)
I read the comic, read the comments, and went back and read the comic again going…”Gravy dressed up?”
Then I went back to admiring how gorgeous Bandit looks!! And trying to devise if I can imitate that in a scaled down costume.
…there’s nothing wrong with imagining a GA Cosplay. Nothing at all….
All I could think was “Where’d Bandit steal that outfit?” hehe.
I was thinking “Where’d Bandit steal those breasts?” Cause i doubt she’d agree to wear a corset or anything else that would restrict her movement.
I’d imagine that she binds her chest when in her leather armour for reasons of mobility and the fact that breasts are a great way to get noticed, something she probably doesn’t want most of the time. They’d also get in the way at times.
If you’re looking at the boobs… hey is this your wallet?
I’d imagine Bandit doesn’t need much of an excuse to have an expansive wardrobe, after all best way to disappear into the herd is to look like you fit in. Not to mention it’s amazing enough to swipe something out from a crowds nose, it’s all the more amazing when you do it in a dress and heels.
Bandit looks really cute, but my first impression was “what happened to her neck?” – it seems 2-3 times longer than it normally is.
I think it’s how she has her hair done. Also possibly a change in posture – surely she knows how to alter such things as stance and posture, being such an experienced con artist.
*ahem* Manipulation expert, that is.
She’s stretching it to reach GD’s ear (whisper mode).
So, what do the Shit Elves eat, again? :P
Sugar and spice.
Wait. Where’s who going with what? Is bandit talking about the elf’s comedy routine?
…. Bandit is beautiful! I love her so much.
What, so even though he’s an elf, he’s no longer a wood elf cause he doesn’t live there anymore. is he a Gastonion elf now?
He’s a human-elf now.
If Gravedust thinks this guy’s comedy is racially biased, it’s a good thing he doesn’t live in the real world.
[Non-White Comedian]: All [comedian's race] people are [stereotype]. White people don’t get it because they’re [inverse of stereotype]. That’s why [related stereotype].
oh man, and how about [racial steriotype presented as observational humour]? am i right? am i right?
not sure i entirely agree, and i’m not a purveyor of common american stand-up, but what about chris rock and chappelle? seems like their comedy is basically as described above but with reversed races…?
It’s all a matter of taste, IMO.
i wasn’t making judgement on quality, just subject matter.
is it weird that I find gnomes/halflings are hot?
Also, I just realized something: To a gnome, all jewelry is twice as big. Modest gems look huge.
heh, he is funny :)
