Stripcreator In-Joke FAQ

Like any web community, Stripcreator has its share of in-jokes and one-note characters. If you find yourself scratching your head as to why everyone around you here finds a joke funny and you don't, either a) you aren't taking the right drugs or b) it's an in-joke.

In order to reduce your confusion, here are some of the in-jokes you are most likely to encounter.

Rotor Turbines and Gravitons

Cowboy Physics is one of the earliest strips on the site and a fine example of "pregnant pause" humor as well.

[Click to view comic: 'Cowboy physics']

Legend has it that it was merely a test strip and wasn't indented to be funny at all. But anyway, people like to refer back to it. At this writing there are almost 300 strips that refer to gravitons.

TOBOR WILL CORNHOLE YOU NOW

What isn't funny about a red robot with a giant, telescoping phallus that likes to rectally violate people and can only refer to itself in the third person? Hmmm? His earliest fully-fleshed (so to speak) strip is here:

[Click to view comic: 'My first sale!']

He's pretty much a one-note character. But as a one-note character he's fun to throw into different situations. If you're into man****, that is.

Asian Girls

Yes, those lovely little imps that stare out at you as you begin to make a comic. There are two main in-jokes associated with them. The first is the obvious one. Asian prostitutes saying, "Sucky, sucky five dolla'." The second is simply finishing a comic with just the default panel of the two girls staring out at you ironically. Why is that funny? Damned if I know.

Dr. Pedantic

Dr. Pedantic likes to correct people.

Kaufman

Kaufman is a Stripcreator regular who is known for his awful puns. Others often use his forumusers character to portray him delivering particularly awful examples.

Fuck

Fuck was a secondary ID someone used by andydougan make fun of trolls. Or maybe he really was a troll. In any case, he made some strips with the feetforears character saying something like, "wehn a man loves a women he NALES THE FUKKIN BICH." Yes, a perfect imitation of an adolescent noob. In the end, **** took hold as a one-note character:

Crabby Does Not Suck Dick

At least he says he doesn't. He said it many times in the forums, and it made its way into the comics.

[Click to view comic: 'Leave It To Tobor #2']

WASH AND WASH!!!

This dates back to this strip. It's not seen so frequently now, but it does creep up once in a while.

[Click to view comic: 'On the Job']

Wirthling Sucks

This dates back to Comic Contest #6 which was run by Wirthling himself. The rules were that we had to make fun of him. So in fact the whole thing is his own fault, although it was helped along in no small part by Gabe Billings.

The establishment of Wirthling as an all-purpose target for insult humor was a milestone in Stripcreator history. It happened back in the early days of the site, when we were all just getting to know one another, and just dissing someone randomly would have been a bit of a faux pas. In running that contest, Wirthling gave us carte blanche to make fun of him for anything (although he probably didn't expect it to continue past the end of the contest), and so opened the door for a new type of humor that would be accessible to all forumgoers, no matter where they lived or who they knew.

Not one of the more successful one-note characters -- perhaps eclipsed somewhat by Tobor -- but still a classic.

Moh!

The skeleton stands against the background of an apocalyptic city and exclaims, “Moh!” Dating back to the early days of the site, Mohh Omlo is a hardy perennial among one-note characters.

Non-Sequitur Donkey

Pretty obvious and pretty funny.
