I used to really dislike Penny Arcade. Probably because the ex-boyfriend (let’s call him Nebraska McBaldyFat) who introduced it to me worshiped it so damn much. He got just about every joke, and when he didn’t, he’d laugh anyway, then look it up so he could be one of the cool kids.
I have since come around to enjoy the illustration style when I don’t understand the point of their comics, like this one which I fell in love with the moment I saw the final frame.
Halloween is my favorite holiday, way more than Xmas or even my own birthday. I’m anti-slutty costume and I don’t eat the candy, but just love having permission to act like a weirdo for a whole day/night along with everyone else; it’s like we all really are friends. Everyone’s smiling and having a great time. It’s one nation-wide party. Mostly, I dress like a dog and bark at passers-by. It’s pretty fantastic.
