TLOU | Lessons in Psychiatry by TheGouldenWay TLOU | Lessons in Psychiatry by TheGouldenWay
Well, I received some rather severe backlash after posting my last The Least of Us cartoon, due to the lack of any wordplay in the strip.  The justifiable reaction of my superbly attractive and immensely numerable followers came flooding through the internet in towering waves of comments and private messages ranging from polite hostility to uncomfortably kinky death-threats.  As such, I made absolutely certain to include a pun in today's installment.  Please don't run [censored] by my [censored] while [censored] my [censored] poor [censored] to a [censored].  I'm not sure if my aglets are robust enough to accommodate that, anyway.

PUNOGRAPHY:
Another name for a mounted machine gun like the one on the armored truck is a 
turret"Turrets Syndrome" sounds like "Tourette's Syndrome" which is a neurological disorder characterized by involuntary movements and vocalizations -- about 10% of cases include a symptom called coprolalia, which is the involuntary use of vulgarities.

How dare you. I was looking forward to appraising the level of kinkiness in those death threats. The ones that don't exist.

I don't browse your art and comic bits purely for puns and funs(I like your dramatic bits too), but I wasn't impressed with the one you mentioned getting backlash for(really, people were mad at you?). "It can't climb up", "unless they figure out how to open doors", y'know? It's a little overdone, you can thank Hollywood for that. Good on you for revisiting that, bringing it around town.

The reaction you got for the last one was that harsh?
Damn, wouldn't have thought people would be so pungry....

Well I thought it was funny.

The last one you did with the truck was hilarious I thought. This one is pretty good too xD

You should really do an avatar of Ellie from the last panel of this comic :rofl:

It's really ironic coming from Ellie, considering she is the "f bomber" of the two.

I was actually going to be upset about hearing people threaten you over something so small.
Then I clicked on the link.

Any of your comics always make me smile, no matter what you do with them.

Alternate ending when the turret car finds them after that pun: "Thank God!" Joel yells as his will to live is overwhelmed by Ellie's pun.

As a further response on these last two comics, this part in the game really frustrated me.  I wanted to "Leroy Jenkins!" all of those hunters, but we couldn't in this instance.  Ugh, I just hate those hunters so much!  (Said as someone who vastly enjoyed the final Joel action sequence.  ;))

Don't let this make me seem like a FPS "kill 'em all" bro.  It's a testament to my investment in the story and characters.

[SPOILERS]

I was 100% into Joel's final rampage, so no judging here.  I got so into it that I actually killed two of the surgeons before I came to my senses and realized they weren't a threat, so I left the last one alive, and while I did feel a little bad for the unnecessary bloodshed, that guilt meant nothing compared to saving Ellie.  The game did a great job of getting me to understand and sympathize with Joel's decisions, and while I won't say I would've gotten as far as he did in that scenario, I can't say I wouldn't have tried to do the exact same thing.  Very well crafted characters.  Very well written ending.  Very game.  Much very game.

Oh yeah.  I had to stop playing for a while after that part where it makes you think Joel really died.  :)  

Every time I sat down to play that game, I had to brace myself.  It was very emotionally involving.  :)

First, I loved the last comic. It didn't need a joke, some comic are funny without them.
Second, as someone with Tourettes-like ticks, I found this comic funnier than I should have.

I agree, not every funny moment from TLoU was pun-based anyway.

I appreciate that.  As for the gif, it's true that I got a good-natured complaint or two, but no "uncomfortably kinky death-threats".

Well, I'm glad I wasn't the only one who was disgruntled & bewildered when the last comic came up, WITHOUT the usual pun.
But I didn't think it would lead to something like that...
