Patent filing humor is the best humor, and that isn't sarcasm.

For some reason, I couldn't imagine Kathleen being scared of spiders, so her freaking out got me rolling.

I thought the pacing of the feature story was really good. Like, yes this is stupid and we'll make fun of it for that, but we won't belabor the point. Especially not when Clip Art Guy is right there begging to be mocked.

And yes, those images are completely real in case anyone else was wondering.

After seeing page 15 I originally thought that this product would allow people to grow some kind of insect mandibles, but on closer inspection it turned out to just be a headset.

Spiders are just 8 legged micro-bears.

The post-spider reveal was my favorite part, as was the part where you were "talking to Notch" because you actually did get a chance to talk to him during Desert Bus, and it's not entirely inconceivable that he'd listen to you.

Thanks Trisha!
I understand that Memorial Day is a big holiday in the US, so I guess whoever makes them usually are doing things?

I think it's up to individual posters and whomever gets there first to post the PATV discussion threads. I've seen different people do different comic discussion threads, etc.

You should PM a moderator and get them to sticky it for you.

That was a great episode! "Sadpants McGee" and "SPIDERS!" had me in stitches.

This was the best yet. And it was great how Graham seemed (to me at least) to be genuinely happy when he said "Duke Nukem Forever has gone gold". Really nice touch which made that segment perfect.


Also, I don't even play Minecraft, and even I can appreciate the sheer volume of time-wasting that putting Minecraft on Droid (or any portable device) would have.

Paul's segments, as ever, remain a joy. It really feels as though you guys have hit your stride with CheckPoint. How cool to see ENN's successor coming into its own. Congrats!

I started laughing when Paul's bit came on... and I was laughing so hard I was crying at the spiders.

Wonderful.

Oh hey, looks like the PA thread finally got stickied. And apparently, as a community, they greatly disliked the delivery of the spider joke, lol

Eh, I didn't get that. My portray of spider fear is so realistic, they don't think it's real.

Kathleen, your delivery of the spider joke was what had me laughing the hardest.

The fear was palpable.
