Cannibalism?

Would Yahtzee eat people?

I think he would.

Personally? No, that'd take way too long. Genocide, maybe, but unless the people were being manufactured into Soylent Green

He's methodical, yes, but sometimes he can just lose all self-control, such as now, when he's so pissed off his eyes are glowing. He may surprise you with how uncivilised he can be.

Yeah, but eating someone? I'm sure he can go all crazy, he wouldn't be a good villain (hero?) otherwise. I'm just saying, he's not gonna kill somebody and start eating their liver because just because he's feeling a bit peckish. Then he'd just be Hannibal Lecter with a hat. I like to think he wouldn't resort to cannibalism unless there was a dang good reason to do so.

I think the word you're looking for is 'anti-hero'.

Yes! That word. Blast me and my limited American vocabulary. How did we get on this topic anyhow? Doesn't really relate to the strip much.. just a random discussion point I suppose?

Why did you give him a hockey mask? Is it just because you can't draw his face from that point of view?
I cant see him grab his gun and get all psyched about killing people, then stop and ask "Bollocks, where's me hockey mask?!"
Me? I'm just the sex appeal.

Don't be silly, he always knows where is hocky mask is.

I wasn;t really thinking of eating livers as per the hannibal lecter stereotype, I was thinking in the more human rasher side of things, spare ribs, Kentucky Fried Texan and the likes.

I could draw the face from that angle if I wanted, the mask is to add a further element of spoof to an already spoofy storyline.

According to my bottomless memory of YTOTW, I think I've only ever drawn YZ's face head-on in one strip. Ages ago, during the 'ganja in the stew' storyline, when he was sitting on a sofa watching TV.

Paul, meanwhile, has been pictured head-on in two strips. Surely some shameless favouritism there.

Poor Brad. Poor poor Brad. He's gone. Who's next?
And isn't the cameraman filming all this? Shouldn't he be doing something? Such as running?

The cameramen don't film them gathering the ganja due to the legal issues involved. If it got on national TV, the show would probably get pulled and the camera men wouldn't be able to get any more free ganja.

Besides, it's more fun this way :wink:

I always do this. Always. But let's get on with it...
I really liked the whole thing with the mask, and the spoofing. This is extremely cool. I have no reason for liking it other than that it's cool.
That is all.

I haven't actually referred to any cameramen in this storyline ... maybe the kids take it in turns to film each other. Or maybe the cameras are tiny automatic things that fly around them (remember, YTOTW could be taking place in the future, we just don't know).

EDIT: You know, it's just occurred to me I could do a sort of betting shop thing here. Who do you think will be the last of the wannabes alive on Yahtzee Island? Brad's already dead, so you have a choice of Phil (the black guy), Maria (dark-haired girl), Leroy (dark-haired white guy) and Tammy (orange-haired girl).

Leroy. All the way.
The girls have to die, otherwise it's no fun (from Yahtzee's articles, I know that sometimes thay survive to get killed in the sequels, but I'm sure he won't stoop that low).

Then, Phil just seems like a likelier candidate for sex with one of the girls, at which point, he dies.

Well Yahtzee draws comics like a month in advance so its likely their fate has already been decided.
