The IMPire Strikes Back #02

For legal reasons I have to point out that any similarity between the dialog of this strip and a transcript of a certain celebrity pundit’s on-air weeping is purely coincidental.

    We believe you, Dale.

    Well, not really, but we’ll give you the benifit of the doubt. All the both of me.

  2. Toaster of Vengeance

    Why do people make fun of him for loving his country?

  3. Baughbe

    I know Dale. You have more taste than that to spotlight such an artificial and over-rehearsed act just for relevance.

    Poor Tears, so many amateurs in the field.

  4. dale_mettam

    @ToV – Well, in the strip above, the pundit in question is called Ben Glekk. He’s a well known celebrity pundit in the LPI universe, constantly prone to emotional outbursts and seeing monsters in the closet (in fairness, the first time he thought that, Tears had invited Pain over for drinks… but beyond that, it was all in Glekk’s head). Not sure who you were thinking of. 😀

    When not at Faux, Tears has been hanging out around snivelling House Speaker John Boehner’s offices. But I’d probably cry too if my last name was ‘Boner’.

  8. jjmblue7

    I agree, tears, your new job would make me miserable, too.

  9. Sicarius

    Poor Tears…*skitters off in search of comfort food*

  10. DktrAgonizer

    Awww, poor Tears. That’s two down then, now to see where Pain is hanging out I guess.

    I like the new banner up top, by the way!

  11. Comichero

    you guys know if read correclty faux dosent remotely sound like fox also if find it amsuing as i know what faux really means and find it to be true for most news stations

  12. dale_mettam

    Who mentioned Fox?

  13. dan

    FAUX was a nice touch, I thought.
    looking forward to seeing what Pain’s been up to!

  14. Sicarius

    *grins impishly deciding -not- to point out the obvious*

  15. Ouroboros

    Wonder if Pain will be hanging around some MMA tournament…

    Or possibly chilling at a rendition camp….

    Or maybe handing out violins to five year old children…

  16. Comichero

    No one has directly mentioned fox Dale but you would have to blinder then blind to not notice that you are refering to FOX new the double beams of light on the left of the F the less then conspicuous use of an emotional pundit mirroring John Beohner whos names is Ben Glekk (Glenn Beck) yes yes quite obivous you are poking fun of the conservative side of the politcal spectum, yoru readers are not dumb and it behooves you to never assume they are because whenyou assume you make an ass out you and me

  17. dale_mettam

    For legal reasons the assumption you draw are YOUR assumptions. The last thing any one here does is assume our readers are dumb. We have debated about the level we should set and come to the conclusion that we would NEVER dumb anything down. As yet, no gag, however obscure or high-brow has gone without someone getting it… so we aim at the smart readers out there… of which we are EXTREMELY proud to say we have a LOT.

    As for making an ass out of anyone… ask Courtney… I AM am ass. How you got there is your own business.

  18. Sicarius

    …that actually should have been painfully obvious…*sighs*

  19. Kiriel

    Woah, new header get o3o;;

  20. DktrAgonizer

    And there you have it, folks. Proof from the writer that one of the teams IS, in fact, a donkey!
    (Sorry, Dale. :))

    @DktrAgonizer: he’s a Democrat too??
    (Sorry,late I know but had to say it!)

    Great, another idiot ripping on the only news source that isn’t left-wing drivel. No wonder this society is falling apart. Even worse when the going notion is that the alternative to the lib-tards is religion. Talk about being between a rock and a hard place.

  24. Dale

    You, waf, are AY-dorable.
