Dammit, Devon! I should sue you! I laughed so hard at today's comic I fell outa' my chair. The ground hurts, especially when one finds that four-sider one dropped sometime the previous night. "Not that I wouldn't suicide bomb for that cause." *sniggers uncontrollably*

Go Devon!

Post by Htg »

Really, my only question is why more people haven't commented on the absolutely hilarious recaptioning of that comic. You're doing a great job, Devon. Keep it up!

htg

P.S. Devon, have you considered a career as a web-comic artist, recaptioning other's comics? You've gotten off to a very good start here.
Why are canines called canines when feline canines are bigger than canine canines?

*smiles* Well, I'm glad I was able to injure you. Makes me feel good. I personally loved that punchline, and I pulled it out of nowhere.

Yikes! I'm honoured! Um... I haven't considered a CAREER, but... considering that Pete Abrams does HIS comic and it's a lot funnier than me, I'm sure I don't have a hope of making a living at it.

Hehe, actually love, with my mad art skillz and your sense of humor, we could probably go places, you know. I mean, let's face it, I'm not very funny. And you're not a great artist (at least not in the area of freehand drawing. I actually think you've got a VERY good eye and mind for it, and I've seen what you can do with PS)...

Hehe. of course, that's assuming we were doing a purely humorous comic. I think I'm probably a better storyteller than Devon, but he's better at analyzing and coming up with original ideas.

*nuzzles Devon* I love you, sweetie. You're doing such an awesome job. I'm proud of you!

In retrospect, I should have commented that I found the comic amusing :)


I think Gloria has a good view of the "broad" picture.

I shudder to think of the magnitude of what the two of them could accomplish together... :)

Hmmm... Well, Devon does have a stated goal of taking over the world and installing himself as an iron-fisted (yet benevolent) ruler who will convince the world of the error of it's ways in a brutal (yet loving) manner...

Siggy es palindrome...

Post by Htg »

but unfortunately my Latin skillz are not up to the task of deciphering the meaning (if any). Aber Deutsch, das kan ich ja gut sprechen (und schreiben.)


Devon wants to take over the world? Between his comedy, and Gloria's emotional stories, the armies of the earth will be alternately overtaken by gales of laughter and storms of tears. All that need take place is to physically remove the weapons from their weakened hands. And then...

"All bow before His Royal Highness, Emperor Devon Ironpaw, and Her Imperial Majesty, Gloria Tapalena, Rulers over the United Terran Nations!"

Sounds very impressive, no? Only I'm not sure whether, in this case, the Empress' introduction should precede that of the Emperor... Now I know why I never got into court etiquette. BTW, do you like the throne names I invented?


On a different tangent, Piebald's an emo band?

Never heard [of] them, but there ain't quite anything like reading the archives of <i>Untitled</i> with a nice Mozart selection blasting from the speakers - say, the Requiem Mass, or <i>Don Giovanni</i>.

*Looks around at all the people staring.*

What! What's the matter?

P.S. Do I get anything for being the first sycophant? Do I? Do I?

Seriously, what does it mean? Or do you want to maintain the air of mystery that surrounds yourself? :wink:

Oh no, they won't. You're forgetting the secret weapons - the infamous Norwegian Humourless Bureaucrats. Upon receiving any form of humour from the world-throne pretender they will immediately respond with a form of 56 pages to be filled out in seven copies, with, for each point to be filled out, at least 200 exceptions for individual particular situations, and a rules-booklet of at least 1000 pages. And if that does not suffice, we will invoke the combination of Swedish court-tactics and the Danish legal system - before the evil power of that combination, all shall despair!

In a monarchy, there may at any one time be only one sovereign. If Devon is the sovereign, then he is the Emperor Reignant, then Gloria becomes the Empress Consort, and Devon is named first. If Gloria is the sovereign, then she is the Empress Reignant, and Devon becomes the Imperial Prince Consort, and Gloria is named first.

Thank you for clarifying that. Both in the Netherlands and in Britain the reigning monarch is the Queen, and their husbands were/are Prince Consorts, n'est ce pas?

But it sounds as if the Norwegian Bureaucracy has made some enemies. This would mean the country is ripe for a revolution, and that someone who has already conquered the rest of the world (not all nations are as blessed as Norway bureaucratically, and America should prove a particularly easy target) and promises to replace an efficiently inefficient bureaucracy with an efficiently efficient one, should have easy pickings.

That's an interest avatar you got there, by the way. I'd guess it to be a WWI era ship (coal burning, but the Dreadnought style weapons layout, I think), but I can't decide whether it's a cruiser or a battle ship/cruiser. What is it?

Yes - as well as Prince Henrik of Denmark (although last year he managed to get himself upgraded from prince consort to drama-queen). Normally the term Prince Consort is not used directly, but you may hear references along the pattern of "HRH Prince Philip, the Prince Consort, has not made any public comment on his recent diagnosis of foot-in-mouth disease." It should be mentioned that AFAIK in the UK, Prince Philip is normally referred to as "Prince Philip, (the) Duke of Edinburgh", or simply "the Duke of Edinburgh". During the Memorial Service for HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, Garter King of Arms read all her titles and styles, which included the phrase "Queen Mother and Queen Dowager", indicating that a bewidowed Queen Consort or Empress Consort is retermed Queen Dowager or Empress Dowager.

To the best of my knowledge, in Britain the honorific for an Emperor or Empress (reignant, consort, or dowager) is His/Her Imperial Majesty; for an Imperial Prince/Princess His/Her Imperial Highness; for a King/Queen (reignant, consort, or dowager) His/Her Majesty (in some cases I've seen His/Her royal Majesty, but I think this is rare); for a Prince/Princess Reignant, a royal Prince/Princess, or a Grand-Duke Reignant/Grand Duchess (reignant, consort, or dowager) His/Her Royal Highness; for a Duke/Duchess His/Her Grace; for a Marquess/Marchioness The Most Honourable Lord/Lady; for an Earl/Countess, Viscount/Viscountess, or Baron/Baroness The Honourable Lord/Lady.

A revolution is an impossibility, as the Norwegian bureaucracy is so large that every single citizen is either a bureaucrat or closely related to one, so a revolution is doomed to failure. And you're wrong to be so optimistic about America - have you had a look at the application-process for a social security number?

It is the Norwegian coast-defence armourclad KNM Norge of 4200 tons normal displacement, laid down at Armstrong's in 1898, armed with two Armstrong 8.2"/40 in single turrets, six Bofors 5.9"/50 in casemates, and two submerged 17.7" torpedotubes. Protection was 6" thick Krupp-Harvey homogenous armour on the belt, with 7" in the turrets, and 2" on the deck. Speed, with 4500 ihp steam machinery was 16.9 knots.
