I <3 me some DocPop! Met him at Zinefest this year, could not have been a nicer guy. And his yoyo tricks are pretty much awesome. What's his MeFi username?

Best thing I've seen all day. Thank you.

It's funny, I keep coming across that comment, pasted on blogs, on StumbleUpon. It's spread across the web. I was looking at the comments on one and this guy linked to a bunch of places where the comment had been pasted, and said "it's all over the internet. It's fake." It's funny how someone would assume it was fake just because it spread virally.

That's maybe pretty close to my favorite thing ever, the comment and the resulting comment. Thanks.

Resulting comic, dammit.

Hilarious!

One thing I don't understand is how one "swings" open a door that is not on a frame.

Who said it wasn't on a frame?

Last night I was driving my friends from a Halloween party, and my friend in the passenger seat started talking about a story she found on StumbleUpon, about this guy who answered his door on Halloween to find another door, and these college kids dressed up as old ladies, and I took one hand off the wheel and grabbed her by the shoulder and asked "WHAT COLOR WAS THE WEBSITE YOU SAW THIS ON?!"

I nearly crashed the car because someone I know IRL was mentioning MetaFilter and I could not believe it.

So great. And yeah, this is making the rounds, I saw it being multicasted on twitter before this post went up.

Excellent.

Wow, that is totally awesome. (Both the story and the comic.)

Oh man, I'd love for someone to retell me this story, and I can be all Bill Murray/GroundHog Day and start reciting the story back to them with a glazed look.

Holy mother of goodness, that original comment has 779 favorites! That is insane! Good story, though, and a nice comic.

I've been a bit irritated at some things lately, so was like "Fuck it, I'm wearing my new Metafilter shirt to work" (it's not exactly outside the dress code, but not something I'd normally wear).

Anyway, I get there and we're having our Halloween thing on Friday (I'd forgotten). Most people were dressed way down or in costume, so it seemed to fit. Still someone asks, "What are you dressed as?" And before I can answer someone else says, "He's the internet."

I hope it had a professional white background.

I wore my tl;dr shirt around town for some errands the other day and ran into like five fucking people who saw it as a personal challenge. They had to figure out what the fuck it was about. That was kind of charming.

I also wore my butts lol shirt to brunch with my uncle and grandma back in September when I was driving through Maryland with my brother, and they came to the conclusion that it was actually a "butts 101" shirt, like I was teaching remedial butts.

That is all.

I prefer the superficial overview of Butts 101 to some of the later courses that are a lot deeper in butts.

You should really consider getting your degree, and maybe doing some postgraduate work. I understand that Master's level classes really examine butts on a close level, and dig deep into butts to investigate the depths of the subject.

But what does a Master's in Buttslology really qualify you for? Teaching Freshman Butts in high school? You can get arrested for that...

Best to unbuckle down and fully immerse yourself in butts by getting the PhD. Then you yourself can teach Butts 101.

Dude, the comps for the Butts PhD are shit!

Speaking of sexy halloween costumes, I'm pretty sure Basic Instructions ripped me off! I swear I said exactly that sort of thing in one of our recent "oh noes, halloween costumes is too sexys for teh childrens!" thread.

Good on ye, Basic Instructions.

I was hanging out once and my roommate's boyfriend started telling everyone the story of Astro Zombie's girlfriend crying at the preview for Wall-E. And I was all like, "Yeah, I totallyknow that guy who wrote about it. Well, not know know, but internet know."

I then proceed to the kitchen and made myself a Hendricks and tonic.

Doc's a great guy. If you find yourself hungry head to Ike's and order his signature sandwich. Free comic with every order.
