Two Weeks With No Class: In Which I Admit That I Am Powerless Against “Manly Guys Doing Manly Things”
…OMG, you guys, NOT LIKE THAT.
THAT IS NOT WHAT I MEANT.OKAY, OKAY.
I surrender. I admit that your argument is entirely valid.
HOWEVER, that is STILL not what I meant.
What I meant is that Manly Guys Doing Manly Things is an amazing webcomic, and I can’t stop reading it.
This, by the way, is why I mostly don’t read webcomics, or play video games, or … all that other stuff. Because my primary form of Discipline Maintenance is pure Avoidance*.
If I know I can’t stop doing something once I start, I. DON’T. START.
But MGDMT is a worthy distraction, and does a great job with subtle commentary on social issues and stuff (in, you know, a totally manly way).
I feel that I should stipulate that I’m grossly unfamiliar with most of the characters in their original settings (I have neither read many American comics nor played many of the games from which some of the characters originate), but I still generally “get” the jokes.
Also, I highly recommend hitting the archive and starting from the beginning — partly because the whole series is awesome, but partly also because I’m malevolent and envious and I feel that if I’m going to get sucked down this rabbit hole, you should, too 😉
Have fun stormin’ the castle!
