Skaters gonna skate.on February 28, 2012 at 12:01 am
I’m a terrible Canadian, because I’m a terrible skater. here, take my Canadian citizenship card. I don’t deserve it.
also I’m probably gonna get rid of Dinky or Sir Richard or whatever we’ve decided to call him. I feel he’s actually hurting the comic by being in there. I need to balance my art with my writing and having him in there just seems distracting. I’m sorry to those who feel in love with him. A special place in my heart is reserved just for him.
Also I apologize if I haven’t been around the comment section as of late I’m still getting over this Flu and I’m trying to catch up with all the work I’m behind on. But expect a big announcement this month about the book.
COMMENTERS! What simple thing are you absolutely terrible at? Is it swimming? Playing chess? SEX?
Man, you’re such a hard ass.
GET IT? Hilarious.
who invited this guy?
I am in your webcomic, making bad jokes.
Really bad jokes.
Arg, throw the other skate at him!
Arg, throw the other skate at ThatGuy!
Also uh I guess I am terrible at writing jokes.
you’re just fine sir!
bwahahahaha! Also skiing :< I'm fine at moving, i'm terrible at stoping…
I’m the same way… can’t ski to save anybodies life…
– ANDREW LITTLE TIMMY NEEDS THIS NEW HEART you gotta get this package to him in 15 minutes!
– Sure, let me just grab my car–
– No Andrew. You must skate there.
– Nice knowing ya, kid.
Stopping is easy. Just find a tree/wall/building/rock/ski lift pole/other person. That’ll stop you right quick
I am absolutely terrible at starting conversation.
I should probably have my American citizenship card revoked for disliking football and baseball, among other things.
Aside from that, I can’t run or ice skate because my feet are… not so good, and I’m terrible at breathing through my nose, because it’s also fucked up. Grumble grumble grumble damn biological problems. The one time I tried to skate I didn’t fall though, I just had to stop when my feet felt like nails were being driven into them.
Get well soon, still.
It’s too bad you couldn’t fly in the first panel. You look like you were trying really hard. That kid wouldn’t be laughing if you were flying, now would he? Stupid people who are good at things, laughing at us who suck at everything.
I don’t think that counts. Isn’t America’s thing Tolerating Intolerance while being Intolerant?
(Totally an American, this is not a cheap shot)
Is stopping important in ice skating? Because I can’t actually stop on skates but I’m damn good at ramming into the wall at full speed and not hurting myself.
As for things I’m bad at, I’m terrible at drawing.
At least you’re trying it. I’ve submitted myself as physically incapable after being an artist for so long. I’m basically a slow moving cave dweller. Hmm…that might be a decent comic idea. I should steal that from myself.
Hey don’t worry bro, when you draw as well as you do, youve gotta take your time for that sort of shit. The Adventure Movie Poster was awesome. Speaking of which, do you ship to Australia?
Phew. Sweet validation. Thanks bro. *breaks a sweat walking to the bathroom* Oh and the poster is on zazzle which ships anywhere.
BULLSHIT. I see your facebook feed.
-JUST RAN A BAJILLION MILES IN TEXAS HEAT. NO SWEAT!
-OH HAI, BACK FROM THE MOON, YOU KNOW, JUST A QUICK JOG.
-HEY, I’M RUNDUDE McDROBILE!
I’m terrible at deciding what I’m terrible at.
Knowing whether I’m funny or not.
Sometimes I’ll be saying something seriously and people laugh- other times I’ll say things jokingly and they’ll get mad. My solution is to just say whatever I want and bluff accordingly.
Also, remembering username/email/password combinations-
… Your avatar just changed between posts…
because she forgot her password and the system gave her a default avatar instead of her gravatar.
I think you’re funny mary and I’m the only opinion that counts… EVAH!
yep… wave goodbye now!
I’m terrible at skateboarding. faux pas seeing im in a skate punk band. having an identity crisis here? yep. i think ill stick with my scooter.
just be a scooter punk band. BLAZE NEW TERRITORY! I think I’ll write a comic about that.
PLEASE PLEASE DO THIS! in return i will start this new trend of punks on those goofy 90’s razor scooters! SCOOT OR DIE!
I too am a horrible skater
Also apparently I suck at looking like I didn’t just have sex all the time… I put very little effort into correcting this fault
so you’re walking around with disheveled hair and a half chub?
Speaking of Canada, I recently discovered that you guys have a unicorn on your coat of arms. This revelation is making me seriously reconsider my evaluation of whether the USA or Canada is more awesome, as a country.
Aaaaaaaand… I am absolutely terrible at social situations. I can’t maintain a conversation or comfort people who’re sad or tell jokes or join a discussion that’s already in progress or talk about the news or know what to say in response to common phrases or…. well… you get the idea.
Im terrible at drawing, and human interaction
More things than i can count……… Including viedio games (takes awhile to get the hang of it for me) BUT IT DONT GET ME DOWN! (70% of time)
I’m right behind ya dude, FPS on a console is a chore for me, unless it’s goldeneye…
You know when you’ve been on Facebook too long and you try to like comments on other sites
Wouldn’t Sir Richard’s nickname be Sir Dick? Too bad you decided to lose him… As for things I’m bad at, ice skating and fighting games. I broke my wrist during my second attempt at ice skating (decided not to do it again afterwards) and broke my controller playing fighting games (because I threw it hard on the floor after I was defeated by my button-mashing cousin, still play SCV though).
yeah I’m terrible at all fighting games except for Super Smash bros. Melee.
I’m a 6’6” 300lb wall of meat so I’m terrible at most things, but only because they’re made with dwarves in mind. Seriously, who makes slides that small?
But I gotta say, I like being terrible at ice skating the most during this time of the year. Duct taping some knives to my mukluks and hitting the ice, then subsequently enjoying the company of my fellow skaters on the way to the hospital, all whilst trying to stave off ice water hypothermia.
That’s right, I’m a sadistic asshole, and I’m great at it. 😉
and we love you for it!
I’m absolutely terrible at having sex while playing chess in the pool. I can never get the rhythm right to stay afloat AND provide “satisfaction”. Maybe it’s because I’m white. =(
Practice makes perfect!
I quite simply can’t talk to people…. honestly.
I hear ya… or rather i don’t… because you’re mute…
I’ve been ice skating about 5 times, and two of those were absolute disasters. One broken arm (snapped humerus from my body landing on it, which is hardly even possible, dammit). One incident with literally hundreds of people openly laughing at me from off-ice (was following a pretty skater around, slipped, landed right on the solar plexus and let out this goshawful loud loud noise: ice rink was in a mall with a multi-story spectator area).
My only defense is that here in Portland Oregon, we don’t even have ice unless we make it for ourselves. OTOH, maybe I should stay the hell off it in that case…
Ouch… that first one sounds painful. Yeah in toronto there is very little ice that is naturally occurring that is well enough to skate on…
I would say I’m terrible at most normal human activities. Conversations, especially.
I’m also bad at being Australian. National sport – cricket and rugby league. Can’t stand either of them.
I can cook pretty well, though. About the only normal thing I do well.
you’ve got 2 things going for you, being australian and cooking. You’re A okay in my book!
I too am a Canadian, and my greatest sin is… an utter loathing of Hockey. Orz
I like hockey, but I have no desire to watch it regularly
I’m going to have to second David’s comment in regards to the conversations.
I honestly don’t think I’m that easy to misinterpret nor that my sarcasm is that well dissimulated, whatever it is, people always wound up offended when they talk to me. >.>
lot’s of socially awkward ARG fans. I dig it, we can all revel in our own awkwardness.
Both my blackness and hispanicness has prevented me from being good at or liking any winter sports at all I don’t even know how to stop with my skates. I try to turn to get my skates parallel to my forward direction but I just end up turning right.
Also who is this Sir Richard or Dinky?
Have you seen Cool Runnings???
Sir richard was the little penis I was hiding in the comic for a while there…
This is how skating goes for me. I still have no idea how to stop other than skating into a wall.
yeah… I’m a let the friction of the ice slow me down… which makes me never move faster than walking speed.
I’m bad at bowling… Seriously bad… Like gutter-ball-an-entire- round-and-a-half-and-by- the-end- of -the- round- only- hit- 3- pins- bad…
I’m bad with emotions, most of them I had to suppress by the end elementary school (or primary school as some call it), so now it’s tough to do certain things even though I can be more open about myself. And no I don’t want pity.
Yep, this is me for sure. They’re going to deport us, aren’t they?
I find there is always some small child trying to get run-over right in front of you which forces you to swerve and catastrophically fail. Which is what happened the last time I went skating and impacted the ice and some plastic thing that had fallen off someones skate which was then imbedded in my head. Thanks small child! GRRR! I then went to the bar and decided not to drink the waitress was very accommodating with ice and paper towels as I was bleeding profusely.
Similar incident happened to my older sister while skiing. She wrenched her knee out swerving and ended up having to go to the hospital. Thanks small evil children!
im terrible at focusing on anything. and coordination 😀 i look like an idiot most of the time but i have gained a mastery of not giving a shit from this so its aaaaall cool 😀
and yeah, royal is my real name. lot of people think its me not talking clearly enough… hmm….. ad dislexia to the list 🙂
I’m not really bad at anything because I don’t give anything more than a precoursery try before I decide whether or not I’m capable. Either something comes to me and I do it, or it doesn’t and I don’t.
I guess I could say that my limitations are mostly based on talents, thus, so I’m bad at understanding human actions (Aspergers), until welfare is approved I suck at sports and most strenuous physical activities (Unmedicated Asthma), and I have low upper-body strength and neither pitch talent (Can carry a tune from memory, but couldn’t tell you what it is).
apparently I’m terrible at attention to detail because I was unaware of the hidden penis until now o.o
LOL, cuz he deserves it!
Haha, the two things I am terrible at are social interactions and drawing hands.
Skating is fine for me, got enough balance to play hockey. but i cannot swim, learned 6 times, always forgot how to for some reason.
Why’d you decide to stop titling your comics like this: ‘This’ or ‘That’
After 4 years of lessons, I still can’t even stand on the ice in skates… I like to think that I’m just very good at falling down. However, I’m really bad at sitting still. I start getting twitchy after a few seconds.
I’m bad at typing in English.
Tie the shoes together. You now have a bladed bola, capable of incapacitating any who dare mock you.
I suddenly thought of THA kid from the simp sons who walks around going “Haa Haa”
