Rendering…on January 19, 2012 at 12:01 am
This comic is both simultaneously an animation joke and written by my girlfriend. Well, the conversation about the shirts was the main catalyst and it was her idea for the “RENDER ERROR” shirt… we were having a conversation about cute, geeky t-shirts an expecting mother could wear and naturally “RENDERING…” came up. Then suddenly she says and if there’s a misscarriage you could wear one saying “Render Error”… to which we laughed at how horrible we are… I added ARG cleaning out the closet and coincidentally having a coat hanger…
I want to thank all you guys for your support and patience for yesterday’s comic. I have since swapped it with the intended comic and placed the SOPA one in the blog post. it’ll make for a better archive experience.
Oh Boy… Right-wing Christians suddenly just got their panties in a bunch…
Do you really think anyone from that demographic reads his strip? I’m Christian (def’n not right winged) and have a kid and I thought this was funny, but I do have a twisted sense of humor.
As long as people take this as a JOKE I’m okay with that.
You mean this was a joke? GASP!
GOT YA! Yo dawg! I put Jokes in your Abortion debate.
Same here and I thought it was hilarious. Funniest part is the sheen off the coat hanger. Classic.
Haha, I’m a relatively right-wing Christian, and I saw it as a joke.
Ummm…No we don’t. It’s just a joke, and a pretty funny one at that.
So wrong… But so funny!
Pure Arg style =)
I like how I have a style. I’ve been trying to figure out my brand lately.
and fantastically horrible.
But… the world needs ARG babby’s
all in due time…
Oh those delicious Babies.
I want my babybackbabybackback I want my babybackbabybackbabyback
seasoned to perfection with a side of sweet potato fries.
the coat hanger… it adds. it just adds.
hey now… It can also subtract….
Not nearly as bad as the equivalent over on VGCats xD
true… sometimes I worry if I go too far and then I realise respected comics have probably already gone that far, so why not.
FEIND! I love it.
and I love you!
It’s all fun and game until somebody catches a coat hanger in the coochie.
And then it’s a sport…
Is he polishing that hangar?
it just so happened that ARG was cleaning out the closet as the conversation happened.
Oh, come on.
Based on her sense of humor (as you’ve drawn it) and yours, I’m pretty sure your baby could take over the world. In fact, it’d enjoy its new subjugation, like any good masochist.
But yeah, babies are expensive :/
I know for a fact our kids would take over the world.
And I for one hail our ARGian spawn overlords….
I once saw a shirt like that that had an unfolding-to-stretch little velcro bar on the loading thing… neat concept.
Most people should’ve have children, though. I’ve ranted on this matter before, though..
I plan on having kids. I think I’d make an AWESOME dad.
LOL They should sell shirts like that! Though I doubt anyone would be proud enough, or foolish enough to wear the 2nd one… Aaaand now I’m reminded of the abortion (awareness?) video they showed my class back in high school… and in college… actually twice in college… turned me against abortion completely…
I was taken aback when my girlfriend suggested the second T-shirt…
I would wear the second one. But it was totally not about abortion, it was about miscarriages. Although to be accurate, miscarriages are just natural abortions.
That is true. this joke was really about miscarriages i think it got distorted by the addition of the clothes hanger…
lol That makes more sense. I can’t believe I jumped to that conclusion… I blame society in general.
CANCEL BATCH RENDER CANCEL CANCEL CANCEL
it’s a real OctoMom of a situation…
It’s too bad that you can’t speed up the rendering of a baby by adding more “servers” to your farm.
No, but you can at least render multiple at once. Though I wouldn’t recommend this approach.
I didn’t notice the coat hanger until I started reading the comments.
There are some situations in life that will drive a man to find an escape where and how ever he can. Sometimes a guys gotta do what a guys gotta do.
I thought of this when you said you were discussing cute geeky maternity shirts, thought I’d share
haha if only rendering was as painful as child birth! if only…
Reminds me of the very first ever Something Positive. http://somethingpositive.net/sp12192001.shtml
My wife has that shirt. not kidding.
Imagine someone who regularly sees you with that shirt on and then sees the other one on. Awkward.
