Geek Humor

I was poked by a Salvatore Iovene, a very good friend and colleague from time to time to have a look at his comic series. I always thought I should have a look at it as it might be good but then I used to forget about it. Today he poked me again (this time when i was sitting in front of a computer) and I did have a look at it. Oh boy! this is some really great stuff. If you like Geek Humor, I strongly recommend it. Some trailor:

No offence, but I really don't find these very funny. There's no real punchline and the jokes are tired old cliches (Windows sucks, geeks are socially dysfunctional, etc)

There may be others who do enjoy it. It seems to me, though, that there are lots of people who decide to make "webcomics" and only a tiny portion of them are actually funny. The best ones, like xkcd for example, are funny because they're imaginative in the humor that they use.

iain said...

Sorry guys! i hadn't had enough coffee yet. :) I must admit not all of them are great but most are good and some are simply great material. For exmaple:

is good. Anyway sense of humor isn't something very objective at all so I won't be sorry for the incompatibility between yours and mine. :)

“(Windows sucks, geeks are socially dysfunctional, etc)”

Apparently, geeks are straight as well. Dunno where that idea came from.

Totally lame, I'm afraid.

Thanks for the tip, there are definetely some really good ones in this webcomic. I've just read the whole archives and decided that this webcomic deserves a place next to xkcd and Abstroose Goose in my feed reader :)

Thanks hendi! Finally someone who actually gave it a go before concluding anything about it. :)
