Tell me this one isn't better...

He's been on fairly good form of late, looking at the more recent ones.

NEWSFLASH: They are both funny.

HI DERE, Friday, 2 November 2007 15:07 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah, but the happy fantasy land strip is better.

Tuomas, Friday, 2 November 2007 15:31 (fourteen years ago) link

god save me from overanalytical humorkillers

HI DERE, Friday, 2 November 2007 15:32 (fourteen years ago) link

"Better" = overanalysis, obviously.

Tuomas, Friday, 2 November 2007 15:33 (fourteen years ago) link

WHO CARES WHICH ONE IS "BETTER"? THAT WAS NOT WHY I POSTED IT; I POSTED IT BECAUSE I READ IT AND THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY.

FFS IT'S NOT A HUMOR COMPETITION

HI DERE, Friday, 2 November 2007 15:46 (fourteen years ago) link

oh, good, let's apply that music-crit ranking impulse to comics. we can remove the fun from the joke and then use the joke-husks as cultural capital.

fuck you, l. jagger.

elmo argonaut, Friday, 2 November 2007 15:51 (fourteen years ago) link

haha @ the 'i lose' one

Ste, Friday, 2 November 2007 15:58 (fourteen years ago) link

Wld joke-husks be a good investment in these worrisome financial times - the future equivalent of the Cambodian skull-trading market era?

creepy! funny!

Slumpman, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:47 (fourteen years ago) link

that guy so knew there was no F

Slumpman, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:48 (fourteen years ago) link

i think this is my favourite in a long, long time.

Slumpman, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:49 (fourteen years ago) link

that's the point, it's a cruel, inevitable ritual, which makes it a far better strip than if it were random chance.

Just got offed, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:49 (fourteen years ago) link

^^^^^ no

HI DERE, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:51 (fourteen years ago) link

Thanks professor!

Slumpman, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:51 (fourteen years ago) link

i Just got proffed

Slumpman, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:52 (fourteen years ago) link

louis, please refrain from explicating 'funny' anymore, thanks

elmo argonaut, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:55 (fourteen years ago) link

hahahahahaha we've done this, right here on this thread

HI DERE, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:56 (fourteen years ago) link

^^^^^ no

You can read it either way, but I'd imagine all the townsfolk know how KA-GAROO is completed. That they go for 'F' and 'L' I take to be a surefire sign that they're slowly, deliberately sending this man to his death.

Just got offed, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:56 (fourteen years ago) link

how about the letters STFU? would they pick those??

Slumpman, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:57 (fourteen years ago) link

and did i ever say i was explicating 'funny', rather than 'how a comic strip concept works'?

lol Slumpman jumping on the LJ-bashing bandwagon, collect 90 popularity points NOW, you're part of the ILX KREW!

Just got offed, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:58 (fourteen years ago) link

don't Krew me sunshine, you were being a chump.

Slumpman, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 19:00 (fourteen years ago) link

There's no F in weigh.

Abbott, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 19:07 (fourteen years ago) link

the humor in this exchange lies not in the actual posts, but between them

slugbuggy, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 19:09 (fourteen years ago) link

Did anyone else get the book besides me? It's a fine addition to any bathroom.

Z S, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 19:17 (fourteen years ago) link

PS: As my follow-on post explicates, my "no" was not to say you are wrong, LJ; it was to say "stop sucking humor out of this strip by diagramming it".

HI DERE, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 22:57 (fourteen years ago) link

i think i might get it as an xmas gift (for someone else)

Jordan, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 22:58 (fourteen years ago) link

hahah that's one of my new favourites now

Ste, Wednesday, 12 December 2007 09:28 (fourteen years ago) link

I got the book as a birthday present (for someone else). Surprisingly hard to find. Asking "do you have the Perry Bible Fellowship" at four different bookshops like I was some kind of lonely God-botherer.

"What kind of book is it?"
"It's a comic book (I am not a religious nutjob)"
^ second part not actually spoken out loud

ledge, Wednesday, 12 December 2007 09:33 (fourteen years ago) link

omg i didn't know there was a book. tick one xmas gift for, erm, somebody

Ste, Wednesday, 12 December 2007 09:44 (fourteen years ago) link

It's only 10 bucks or so, too. It's available on his site.

Z S, Wednesday, 12 December 2007 16:31 (fourteen years ago) link

i ordered 2 !

yay for great stocking fillers

"25-year-old cartoonist Nicholas Gurewitch watched as the pre-order sales climbed past $300,000 for The Trial of Colonel Sweeto and Other Stories."

"Close to 27,000 copies were sold even before the collection of comic strips had its official release in November."

koogs, Monday, 7 January 2008 13:58 (fourteen years ago) link

I'm a huge fan of "smart people humor", and PBF has never let me down. It was torture having to wait the long months until I received this book for a Christmas present - I was instructed not to buy it from the gift giver.

Two thumbs up, Mr. Gurewitch. Two thumbs up. Hurry up with a sequel already!

one year passes...

so there's a new hardcover coming out? for some reason thought about this the other day. I love it when you return to a comic that you haven't read in a while and you forgot all the jokes but then you reread them and it's like coming home.

=皿= (dyao), Sunday, 20 December 2009 07:18 (twelve years ago) link

I'm pretty sure the book is already available.
