1 The Monkey's Paw...! Er... Button! on Fri Jan 27, 2012 9:13 am



Okay, that's was a nice short story; funny and philosophical in equal amounts.

Anyone here know Kipling's story The Monkey's Paw? A cursed, mummified hand of a monkey can grant anyone three wishes but the wishes bring only grief as they are fulfilled. It seems to me that THE BUTTON is similar to this - grants wealth but only briefly and at the loss of someone you love. A real karma machine! I wonder how long it has been bouncing from user to user on eBuy?

Great work on this short Jack! Very Happy

And so the cycle continues until the end of days. Creepy as hell. Yet funny. Shocked

Nado je. This arc was even shorter than Minecraft's.

To everything turn, turn, turn. There is a reason, turn, turn, turn.

Haha, Phillip.

Subtle subtle self insertion there, JJ?

Ugh. That's the comic book Guy from Simpsons.

Nevertheless - I pretty much sure he got something from an *imaginary* artist that works for a dumb company and draws smut for profit; penguin that reads a lot of junk; sexy cat-lady (...) that plays (at least, used to play) a lot of videogames and do some occasional photos; squirrel.

Fairly certain Art's the self insertion character.

Eh, I didn't find this story all that great. It was just so fast paced, every strip felt like a different genre by itself.
