Thome Quick Ecthpothithon

I… I'm sorry. There's nothing I can do. I'm doomed to simply stand here, smiling terribly. I'm trapped in the cycle… wait. What was it that is going to be happening next? Uh oh.

Author Notes:

Trope-tan's line in Panel 7 features the only example of LITHP code in existence. It's basically the same as LISP, except all the "s" characters are replaced with "th"s.

If I were a more popular webcomic artist - say, if I were Ryan North - within a week one of my readers would have coded a LITHP interpreter.

Incidentally, the speed of plot is faster than light, but slower than sound. And no, the respective speeds of light and sound are the same in the comic as they are in reality.

@Joaqs: Those aren't PotHoles. That's LITHP code. It doesn't exactly have a translation.

I promise I won't make fun of your LITHP!

While Trope-Tan to the bridge did proceed
Jane asked if they had enough speed.
Said Trope-Tan, "Worry not!
It'th the thpeed of plot!
It'th ecthactly ath fatht ath we need!"

I`m lost with the PotHoles(?) in panel seven, how it's supposed to be if translated to the wiki?



Jane: Exactly how fast are we going, anyway?
Trope-tan: Thpeed of plot, dethu.

Jane: Okay, why *are* you occasionally speaking in romanised Japanese now? It's really incongruous.
Trope-tan: It ith the Author'th doing.
Jane: As is everything. Your point?

Trope-tan: He'th trying to reconthile my canon characterithation with hith previous characterithations.
Ath a MoeAnthropomorpithm, I thould thpeak uthing occathional GratuitouthJapanethe.

Jane: I assume that your seemingly new ability to run at the speed of plot is also due to this.
Trope-tan: Yeth. Thith ith invoking my GenkiGirl perthona.

Jane: How is this tie holding together so well?
It should be tearing apart under the force of travelling at the speed of plot.

Trope-tan: Acthually, when held by a GenkiGirl, necktieth have greater thtructural integrity than thteel.
Jane: Ah. Convenient.

Jane: And what's with the lisp?
Trope-tan: What? (thetf *meta* '((PlotHole(three jutht-a-thhow)) (AuthorAvatar(omnithient omnipotent)) (MediumAwareneth(panelth))))?

Jane: I clearly meant your sudden speech impediment.
Trope-tan: It'th megath difficult to enunthiate properly with thith enormouth tooth thticking out of my mouth.
