Let's Try it Again Thursday!

Well, Dear Ones, for reasons I don't really know, the Lois Lane panels didn't get bigger, so I'll work on that and re-post it at another time, because Robert Gillis's commentary on it is hilarious, and I don't want you to miss out.

Instead, let's take a behind-the-scenes look at how we come up with some of the CMNS magic, shall we?  I think that one of the most beloved and will-be-sorely-missed features of our little funhouse is Fun with Out of Context Dialogue! (tm!)

So, you say to yourself, "What could there possibly be to that?  Isn't Adam just some moron who reads something from the perspective of a thirteen year-old and writes something like 'That's what she said'?"

Well, yeah.  But there's a process.


Yes, that is some mighty good stuff.  And we could stop right there.

But should we?

If you're going to take over for me as one of the least-respected bloggers on the web, you've got to know where that line is between "Okay, I'll admit that's funny," and "Well, now you're just being stupid."

Consider again:

Yeah, right in the zone.  It's cheating to take artwork out of context, but when you have that kind of payoff.... well, you knew what you were in for when you came here.  Look at that: "Superboy's Sister," the "meat coming up," how "wonderful it is having Superboy for a brother."  Yeah, that just get's more and more perverse as you take in all the details, but it's still funny. See?  There's a line.

So, I can only hope you, my treasured reader, can appreciate how incredibly hard I've worked over the years, turning pages until my fingers bled, reading terrible comics until my eyes hurt.

Well, okay.  I didn't actually find this one.  David from Confessions of a Superman Fan found it.  But you get the idea.  Love me!  LOVE ME FOR WHAT LITTLE TIME WE HAVE LEFT!

And thanks, David!

See you tomorrow!

I can't believe this one got no comments yet! It's one of your best! A real "if I'd been drinking milk you'd be responsible for my tragic death by *lacticide!*

And to think you're going to give up *all this...* Sigh.

Is Robert Gillis going to take over the reins?
