I just want you to know that...

...you stole this line from Spiderman 2 or 3. Can't recall which.
J. Jonah Jameson says something about Spidey, Peter tells him that would be slander, and he says "It is not, and I resent that! Slander is spoken; in print, it's libel."

And since you have Tropetan as a character/author now, it seems appropiate to put it this way. ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne

I disagree, mainly because conversational bits like that, especially when done so differently, simply can't be considered to be from anywhere in particular, as by that definition, the movie in question stole it from somewhere else, too, which stole it from somewhere else which stole it from somewhere else and so on.

But if you looked up "surgeon" and found a picture of a surgeon you could call, that surgeon would become overbooked and none of the other surgeons would get any patients!

I didn't say to look up "overbooked surgeon", silly. That would be wildly impractical.

I think you have cause and effect a bit confused, there.

Is this comic dead?

16th Oct 2011, 6:43 AM
I think it was, or is, dead. But the lightning is new...

What lightn - Oh. Wow.

The lightning is the same effect used when Bash-tan and Tab-tan came into being. Draw your own conclusions.
And by that I mean draw them in webcomic form.

So, the AntropomorphicPersonification of the comic being dead?
Glad to see time-travel-free paradox, at least.

23rd Oct 2011, 2:20 PM
I think it's the personification of the comic itself... meaning the original author's coming back. YAY!

Why's the title suddenly in Japanese?

It is not a sudden development.

Your comic is bad and you should feel bad.

Oh, I do. I feel simply awful, in fact. It's a daily struggle. But what else can one do but strive to improve?

My condolences for your having received such a terrible name, incidentally. I'd be happy to offer potential replacements, if you should so request.

Oh hi Trope-tan. You're still around, then?

He did get the short straw in the name lottery, didn't he?..

Transcript:

Fred: Now that you're not flipping out about the relative height of your eyes, what are your thoughts on this new development?
Bob: It's awful. All of it. Entirely awful.
There is no word in the English language to describe just how awful it is.

Trope-tan: I become increasingly convinced that if one looked up "intolerable" in the dictionary, there would be a picture of you there.
Bob: … no, there wouldn't. Dictionaries don't work that way.
Trope-tan: True, but wouldn't it be awesome if they did?

Bob: Um, not really?
Trope-tan: No, think about it.
If dictionaries worked like that, you could look up "surgeon", and there would be a picture of a surgeon.
And then you could go hire the surgeon in the picture as your surgeon.

Trope-tan: Or you could look up "plumber" to find a picture of a plumber if you need some plumbing done.
Fred: Or you could look up "heroic" and you'd get someone, y'know, heroic.
Trope-tan: Or you could look up "allergic" if, um, you needed to test some antihistamines?

Jane: So, if your president got kidnapped by ninjas, you'd look up "bad" in the dictionary-
Trope-tan: - and see a picture of me so you'd get me to rescue your president!
Jane: … sure.

Xavius: Wouldn't there be lots of legal issues with releasing such a dictionary?
Fred: Oh, indubitably. The reaction from the guy whose picture is under "jerk", for example.
Jane: The problem of slander is significant in developing this concept.

Fred: Doesn't slander only apply to speech? If it's written I think it's called libel.
Jane: But it's not written, either. It's a picture.
Trope-tan: Libel covers images too. Other Wiki says so.

Bob: There are already things that do this. They are called *phone books*.
Xavius: Ah, but phone books don't provide definitions of words!
Bob: … no, I suppose they don't.
