Fun With Search Engines #31: Are We Having Fun Yet?

Filed under: FWSE — Syd Lexia @ 5:46 pm

      First of all, Part 18 of the NES Drinking Saga is up on the Comics page. Secondly, it’s time for your weekly dosage of FWSE. As always, these are real keywords that visitors to the site typed into search engines. This report spans the week of August 14 - August 20. Let’s begin:

1. i hate nes battletoads - The game is frustratingly hard, yes. But it always kept you coming back for more.

2. who did the evil laugh on michael jackson thriller - That would be Vincent Price. Maybe you ought to familiarize yourself with, one of the best online music resources there is. That, or you could have bought the album and looked at the goddam liner notes. Say what you will about Wacko Jacko, but Thriller fucking kicks ass.

3. kristen cavalleri college decision - Why, are you stalking her? Are you going to pick what college you go to based on what Kristin picks? Or is your life just so sad that you genuinely care where some reality star goes to school? Either way, you should probably kill yourself. NOW.

4. mtv destroyed the music industry - The only thing that MTV destroyed was itself. MTV’s lack of music-related programming as well as their heavily playlisted video shows have rendered them almost obsolete within the music industry. With the rise of internet sites like MySpace, bands are able to find potential fans and music lovers are able to find new bands that might interest them; MTV has falled to the wayside. MTV was a good idea, but they totally sold out after grunge self-destructed in the mid-90s. Bring back all videos all the time and fuck the reality shit.

5. how come wwe programs sucks these days - Because over the last several years Vince decided to hire a bunch of Hollywood writers who know a hell of lot more about sitcoms than they do about wrestling. A lot more time is spent developing storylines and onscreen personalities than is spent planning matches that are actually entertaining to watch. The only truly worthwhile thing the WWE has produced in recent memory is the ECW One Night Stand PPV.

6. arnold cumming gym - Fucking gross, dude. That was totally uncalled for.

7. fight his geriatric father - I have no idea what this person was looking for, but when you search for those words as a string, my Street Fighter article is the only result. Score!

And we’re done. Go away. Then come back. Later.

    You should get a confirmation e-mail at your e-mail address. You need to click the link inside of that e-mail to fully activate your account. Also, your password is case sensitive. If your Caps Lock key was on when you did your password, then your password is in all capital letters.

    If neither of those work, I can probably reset your password for you. You do show up on the memberlist as sunchild1

    A. You cheated. Kirby Cook went down in the comic before :evil: In a comic like this that means they are down for the count.

    B. i hate nes battletoads - I only loved them with Double Dragon.

    2. who did the evil laugh on michael jackson thriller - It was a good evil laugh. Do we really need the song in these fluff movies like 13 Going 30?

    3. Kristen cavalleri college decision - Did she even go to college? College is SO 1983.

    4. mtv destroyed the music industry - I agree 100% with you MTV fell apart. Kinda like Disney and The Jim Henson company without their masters.

    5. how come wwe programs sucks these days - Agreed.

    6. arnold cumming gym - Ew.

    7. fight his geriatric father - I already sold this idea to a popular sit-com on a certain prime time line up that will remain unnamed. Watch for it this fall :D

    Well, Kirby had at least one extra life :1up: , so it only makes sense that his twin will would be capable of obtaining extra lives as well.

  • Posted by Tebor on August 28th, 2005 at 3:01 pm  

    Bosses are immune to extra lives! 8O That’s why they’re called bosses! 8) If bosses had extra lives… the whole system would be on trial! :rant:

    Well, the I guess the question is this:

    Is NES Drinking Saga a comic about a video game or it is a comic about a video game character? I always intended it to be the latter. And Evil Kirby is Kirby’s archnemesis, which means that he technically he can’t ever really die even if he’s written out of the comic.

    The rules for comic book supervillains go something like this:

    1. A supervillain cannot be killed. Ever.
    2. In a situation where the supervillain is presumed dead, no body is found.
    3. If a body *is* found, it’s a clone.
    4. If a body is found and it’s not a clone, a new villain takes over the gimmick.
    5. If a supervillain’s body is found and it’s not a clone and he’s not replaced, then he wasn’t a very good supervillain in the first place.

    However, a supervillians minions can die by the truckloads. Though unless you really like diet coke, I think it will be a few issues before we see evil Kirby’s army completely decimated.
