I tried not to make an arrow in the knee comic, but I feel that this idea has enriched my gaming experience.
It would make more sense than armies built of arrow in the knee people.
Arrow IN in the knee, not arrow TO the knee, play the game before you poke fun at it…
I would make fun of you for this comment, but then you’d want me to get to know you first and to be honest, I don’t think I care to.
I’ll do it. First of all, it says arrow IN the knee in the first panel, so read the damn comic before you criticise it. Second, nobody gives a shit, go fall in a ditch.
They’d want you to get to know them first? What?
Did you use the wrong terminology or are you seriously that pretentious?
I overthought the wording for sure.
But imagining how easily this guy must get mad is funny to me. The sheer ridiculousness of his claim that I haven’t played the game at all because I didn’t memorise the exact wording of some throwaway NPC line? Imagine how hard it must be to be that pedantic for your whole life. Just put him in a panel against any kind of straight man and It’s comedy gold.
Blind Date: “I think I’m going to start with a garden salad, or- were you going to get anything to start? I could just get it with my meal.”
That guy: “UGH. They don’t have a GARDEN salad, they have a CHEF’S salad. Of course, if you’d even bothered to look at the menu you’d know that.” /storms out of restaurant
That guy’s grandmother: “Here you go dearie, I got you your favourite! Mint and Chocolate Chip Ice Cream!”
That guy: “What the hell is wrong with you, it’s called mint-chocolate chip. There’s no “AND” it’s just MINT. CHOCOLATE. CHIP. Did you even GO to the grocery store? Have you even HAD ice cream before?”
aaand three’s a charm:
Funeral Director: “Dearly beloved, we gather you here today to That Guy, who will be most missed in all of our lives….”
/cut to afterlife
Ghost of That Guy: “My name isn’t THAT GUY. If the stupid webcomic artist had even bothered to read my comment, she’d know that the screenname I used was ANON.” /body spins in grave
I don’t even know who you are, but you are my hero now. I thought I was good at sarcasm, but this is priceless.
In fact, I know I used to be good at sarcasm, then I took an arrow at the knee.
I used to care about such minor semantics, but then I took an arrow TO the knee.
I used to care about such minor semantics, but then I took an arrow THEIR the knee.
I think that’s a plausible explanation to the fact that a lot of NPC’s in Skyrim use that line.
Because replying with this video makes you the very pinnacle of originality, right?
You weren’t gonna make a comic about taking an arrow to the knee, but then you took an arrow in the knee.
Oh, we see what you did there.
My character seems to take most arrows to the face. I did kill a “boss” character with a single arrow to the knee though. I guess he just wasn’t guard material.
After 70 hours of playing Skyrim, I had only 1 guard tell me he took an arrow in the knee…
I heard it most times I went by a guard for my first 10 hours or so. I think it’s because I didn’t do any quests, so no new lines got added into the cycle- once I stopped messing around with petty theft and started getting into the actual game the instances of it went way down (though I still hear it almost every time I play the game.)
love the comic strip. hate the gay ass meme though. i can say safely though, you made the meme better in a way but its over used and really bad. (’04 fag here)
We are the guards who say…. Knee !
Come to Internet Webcomics to discuss the ongoing hostilities like the rest of the “great warriors”?
If I catch you fiddling with any login pages around here we’re going to have a real problem.
I don’t know what Skyrim is but i still took an arrow to the knee!
To be honest, I don’t get it. What do you mean by saying I got an arrow to the knee. It just doesn’t make any sense for me.
Does it really matter if it’s to or in? I mean you clearly understood the joke.
“Disrespect Internet Webcomics, you disrespect me.”
“So you can read a couple of webcomics online. Am I supposed to be impressed?”
“Hey, I know who you are. Hail RTgrl.”
Y’know, it’s kind of remarkable to me that so many fictional universes don’t tap the idea of secondary characters having in-jokes at all, as if comedy is some mystical force where only in modern times do people put forth any effort into creating it.
That this explanation fits so perfectly, so hilariously, pretty much guarantees I’m going to be considering this sort of thing more. Well done.
This is the comic that brought me into this webcomic.
It doesn’t seem like half a year, does it?
