The strip

This is one of the more hilarious PA's I've read lately.

Yet another PA strip I read stone-faced. Oh wait, maybe because it's not funny in the slightest. smile

Aye, but when they nail it there is usually a bucket of laughs.  To their credit, even when I feel they've totally failed to bring the funny someone out there has found a new desktop.  Witness today, for example.  Can't please all the people all the time.

The one time I laughed was when the GBA first came out and Tyco (I think) was sitting there playing with it and each panel had more and more light in it. That one was spot-on.

Now that was one of their funniest ones I had seen in some time. Also explained the GBA rather well. smile

I *rarely* don't find them funny. I usually laugh at everyone. Maybe I have a similar sense of humor, or maybe I am just really immature. *shrug*

It's usually the sublte "secondary" joke that makes for the good strips... the main plot (as it were) is rarely worthwhile.

Such as this one... http://www.penny-arcade.com/view.php3?date=2001-11-28&res=l

The dialogue isn't the funny part - it's the fact that those huge things are supposed to be the Xbox controllers.

I found the dialogue pretty darn funny in that one!  Perhaps because I did find the alien spaceship levels to be rather repeditive...

I thought that one was funny because they were sitting on the xbox itself.

You know, I must've read that exact strip 10 times in the past, and I never noticed they were actually sitting directly on the Xbox.

Count me in the party that almost always finds PA to be hilarious.

Rarely do they put up a strip where I don't at  least get a chuckle out of it.
