just explain to them how using credit as though it was cash is supposed to pull the world out of a spiralling economic depression and i think you'd have stumped them.

My school gym teacher always got that exact popping vein in that exact spot. Does that mean that it is universally connected to anger and frustration, or that my gym teacher was an alien?

the following statement is false.
the above statement is true.

works equally well with progenitors of both alien invasion and the robo-pocalypse.

That paradox can be simplified to just "This statement is false."

May 23, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersnafubar

That just means both statements are false. And, people aren't destroyed by logical paradox, why would aliens be?

@Jesse: They can't both be false. The first one claims the second one is false. The second one says the first one is right. Hence paradox.

@jiggly mcsickfingers: Way to make an annoying political statement in response to a web comic, i am humbled by your intelligence.

@piscesmended: Unless this alien race understands lying. Then they could deduct that you had to have been lying on one of them, and you're screwed.

All I can think about is that a picture of his face paired with the quote "What about my Hot Wings?!" would be an epic T-shirt.

If you wrote a webcomic about all webcomics that are not self-referential, would it include itself? And if not, how many other titles are there that you could include?

it is simpler then thar. just think of elivator music

Shouldn't the aliens be communicating with thought bubbles? The aliens in Star Trek's "The Menagerie" communicated with their thoughts and not by audibly speaking. Or would doing so be copyright infringement?
