Toilet humor, folks.

Tony just doesn't want to do a damn thing.

Oh, man. The whole "public bathroom" thing's gotta be one of the most awkward situations people regularly put up with. So, that's some good material to work off of right there. I also didn't know that "WC" stands for "water closet" until I Googled it, so I learned something new today. Cool.

Also, I caught that the last three page titles have been repeating words. The first one reminds me of a weird comic called Super Fight Fight that a guy on the CG forums did, and the second one reminds me of the song "Damn It, Janet" from Rocky Horror Picture Show.

@LibertyCabbage: It's weird to think of the state of public bathrooms back in Loud Era time. And poorer people living in older apartment buildings didn't even have their own bathrooms at all, there would have been a bunch of outhouses outside or slop buckets if anything for some of them.

Kind of weird to think of old bathrooms.

I think I remember seeing Super Fight Fight at some point! I'm going to go look for it. I feel like CG for the most part is an old haunted hospital of weird abandoned webcomics and everything is just frozen in the mid 00's.

I liked commenting on the Dammit Dammit page because the little pop-up seemed SO passive aggressively angry that I commented- like, "Thanks for commenting on Dammit, Dammit!"

@mitchellbravo: Yeah, it's kinda sad thinking about all these abandoned comics that their creators had so much passion for once upon a time. Everything just kinda fell apart after a while.

Hahaha I don't think something that's just a body function should be considered shocking so I like this kind of humour (and partly because of reactions of people who think differently) - as Cop Story will prove in a few pages. :P

Took me a few seconds to figure out what "a log cabin" stood for though. XD

And gosh, Tony is really gentlemanly there - if it were me I'd be all "So is there any shite on the floor in there or not? Come on, I need to know what I'm dealing with!!"

@Oly-RRR: Hahahhahaha I'm excited! And I feel the same way, but then again I'm the type to talk to people on the phone while I'm dropping the kids off at the pool, so...

Haha I forget what I had in that speech bubble initially, but after I scanned it I thought that was funnier so I jimmied some existing letters around to rewrite the dialogue :P

Yeah Tony doesn't want to make trouble, but seems to wind up making it anyway XD Oh my god the things we used to find at the place I used to work... not even in the bathrooms, but in the *dressing closet* o_o

@mitchellbravo: Oh gosh XD I get that emergencies happen to people, I've had my share of unfortunate barfing accidents too but in some cases it's just... NO WAY someone could miss the toilet this far unintentionally. X|

Recently I stumbled on some article about delinquents taking dog poo out of the bin and smearing it across playground equipment somewhere in the UK and it must have been awful for everyone involved (except the delinquents I suppose unless they got caught eventually) but I couldn't help thinking "pff, this one should go straight in Cop Story..."

@Oly-RRR: It was like, people would change their kids diapers in there and then like- hide the diaper behind the seat thing? All the while there was a perfectly usable baby changing table and, *miracle of miracles also a trash can* in the ladies' room. Probably not as bad as the one time one of my customers decided to roll out her 2 year old on the ground and change his poop-ass diaper in the middle of the sales floor q_p help

LMAO that sounds like something my friends and I would have joked about doing but never ever done in real life XD Oh man... the sheer amount of poop stories I have acquired over the years is absurd. I'm pretty sure I could do a weekly comic for a year and have enough material just based on poop alone.


Omg okay and now I'm picturing an alternate version of the beginning of Cop Story- Chance busts into the interrogation room to find it covered in poop by the deranged laughing witness. I think this is a sign I need to go to bed.

@mitchellbravo: Augh X| Yeah, people who seem to live in the world where trash cans were not invented confuse me too! I mean I get it when you're stuck in some crazy unsanitary conditions - when poop wants out there's no stopping it, but when everything is available why not use it?

Yeah, it's a thing that is hilarious as long as it's theoretical! ...and I have a suspicion a comic centred around poop would have a crazy success online. >_>

AHAHAHA, oh man, now I can't get it out of my head. XD I'm sure they get junkies and drunks barfing in the station but smearing poop is another level. I need to draw that. 8I Not in that particular situation of course but that just went on the list of things to consider in the future.

...and haha, now I'm properly inspired for that long short ahead. 8D It's the kind of story that was a LOT of fun to script but after it was written I thought I might want to let it sit for a bit to decide if I'm actually ready to draw that. XD

@Oly-RRR: Seriously! Sometimes I get a little worried about how many people like that are running the world XD

LMAO. Poop-smearing definitely takes someone to a new level of disturbance I think. Like that's just a sign of someone who is going to take no prisoners. XD Why can't I stop laughing about this!!

Oh yay!!! Hahahaha. Oh gosh I know what you mean. Sometimes it's like, happy-mushy-funny stuff, sometimes it's dark stuff, but you actually sit down to draw it and kinda backpedal for a bit just to make sure it's something you're willing to spend hours staring at and slaving over and not something you wrote in a fit of lunacy that is going to drive away everyone who ever glanced at your comic XD

@mitchellbravo: TAKING NO PRISONERS -written on the wall in poop XD

Dammit, you're right, this shouldn't be so funny BUT IT IS XDDD

Yesss. Honestly I'm still not sure how exactly that story will click with the readers but I guess the only way to find out is to draw it.

@Oly-RRR: Hahahahhaa I'm glad I haven't scared you away yet with this diseased discussion XD

And I wish you luck with it, and I know you'll already do this but there's no rush so you can take your time to make sure you've handled it as well as you feel you can.

Reply Oly-RRR, July 27th, 2014, 12:25 pm

@mitchellbravo: Nah, I'm not one to get scared away by that. XD To be fair I started it - "I see this page where a toilet is mentioned as an opportunity to start a delightful conversation about smearing poop on various surfaces!" :D

And thanks! Slowly getting there! :D

@Oly-RRR: LMAO xD
