Oh, Comicpress? Cool. Wait, Blind Ferret? All the old comments are gone?
Oh well. At least the strip is epic.
But if all of the old comments are gone, how will everyone know how random I am?! POR QUE?!
they can read your username.
Ah but does my user name tell them that I'M PACKED WITH CHEESY FLAVOR!
(See, that's a double entendre kids, with it's face value meaning that I'm random, but it also means my jokes are cheesy! It's science! Also, I just ate cheese… Does that make it a triple entendre?)
no, but it might leave you stopped up.
"If I "were" Iron Man."
Subjunctive, bitch. Use it!
Also, I'm having issues rendering the new design correctly. Windows, Firefox 3.5.5.
If I "weren't" iron man, oh man let me tell you…
It seems to me that "If I was …" is an acceptable construction, insofar as "if" works to signal the conditional quality of the statement; the subjunctive can be used (such as in your construction), but is not necessary.
Furthermore, in your construction "if" is not needed, provided you inverse the word order to indicate the conditional:
"Were I Iron Man …"
"Was I Iron Man, I really can't remember, I was too wasted."
On the slight chance you're serious, the subjunctive mood is what he is trying to express. The phrase "If I was Iron Man" would be followed by a textual explanation of the comic "I would do this." This is not correct. The only way it could work would be if the sentence read "If I was Iron Man, I did this earlier." That doesn't make sense.
A link to wikipedia? Please.
I agree that “If I were Iron Man” is more correct than “If I was Iron Man,” but it’s merely elitist bullcrap to say that the latter is incorrect. If his meaning is conveyed effectively, than his grammar is sound enough. That you’re correcting him shows that you understood his meaning, so now you’re just being an ass.
There almost feels like there's suddenly too much color to this website.
kris man you broke the site, pushing the comments button on the main page takes you to a thing that says you dont have permission
when my bookmark said unaccessible, i was legitimately scared.
someone can now go back to all the other comics and be 'first'…
Why isn't Two Cops in the character shot up top? He is cooler than the chef or the clown.
Dude Two Cops died like forever ago but Kris brought him back. So it should be Zombie Two Cop
surely 1 of the 1666 models of iron man came with a mini bar.
Also, how come there's no link to starslip now Kris? You mean I have to do that manually?!
two cops turned into 2 corpses
