2006-11-08 [Galain]: Haha, just a standard drawing comp (more or less) hun! Just design a piece to meat the above specifications
2006-11-16 [Galain]: Fucking excellent! Wow, loving it Mandarian.
2006-11-16 [Dr.Mandarian]: Thanks, Nic! * smiles and winks * Great that you like that so.
Well, it is the HAIR-DO'S! ;)
2006-11-16 [Hummingbird]: I find this oddly offensive o.o and stupid
2006-11-16 [Galain]: Haha, you're hardly the first; and why, praytell, do you find a *joke* offensive? Please, enlighten me.
2006-11-16 [Hummingbird]: Lol ah good then X3 not just me. Is there anything that says this is a joke on here? Alot of things go on on the net and there are alot of, erm we'll say odd people on the internet n.n so if there is something on here which tells me its one big joke, point me at it XD (no putting it there to be mean! DX)
2006-11-16 [Galain]: Ummm, well, apart from the obviously faux-British accent, the ridiculous sign-off, the comical language use, and the rather blunt and explanatory statement: "With a promise to be horribly politically incorrect, and damn good fun..." ....there's nothing. Nope. :-P
2006-11-16 [Hummingbird]: LOL you -are- austrailian (damned if I can spell that after so little sleep) that might be your opinion of us Brits XD sarcasm has to be done properly on the net or it doesn't get across :3
2006-11-16 [H3_six]: Ok, it's not sarcasm, it's satire and requires a certain degree of subtlety to work. The fact that it is a satire means he is poking fun at the people who endorse these stereotypes not at the stereotypes themselves. : p
I'm entering now just for that Australian comment, or do I have to explain irony as well?
2006-11-16 [Hummingbird]: Lol you might as well you seem to be on a roll, when I mentioned he was austrailian I wasn't saying 'Oh dumb austrailian, doesn't know what we engish are like!' I was saying that I dont know how an austrailian person would see an english person, just like I wouldn't know how an american person saw an english person :3 so I couldn't be entirely sure this was a joke wiki, does that make any sense outisde of my head? o.o
2006-11-16 [H3_six]: Yeah, it does, *blush* who let pissed off H3 out of the cage?
Still entering though. ^_^
2006-11-16 [Hummingbird]: Muuuh, I'm jealous, you have wonderful little hoppers and and pretty birds and we have sparrows and cats XD Autrailia is better X3 but too hot o.o
2006-11-16 [iippo]: It's not an Australian view of the English, it's more like a historical one, you can't claim cultural ignorance for not recognising it. :P Monty Python's Meaning of Life for example has the same satire, and that's by English comedians (well not the exact same one though, I don't suppose this game will have Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam dressed as half a tiger each...)
2006-11-16 [Hummingbird]: Lol hmm good point, ignorance is a bit far though thanks, if I go travel around the world and come back knowing nothing then you can call me ignorant. Well either way that was the reason behind me being a tad offended weither you like it or not XD *throws fish*
2006-11-17 [Galain]: Thanks guys, that was fairly well summarised. It's certainly an historical satire, as [iippo] notes, with perhaps a few notes of distinctly Australian views of 'poms' sneaking through in some of the material. There may be comical tigers, but I suspect they shan't involve famous British comedians :-)
2006-12-19 [Galain]: Well, unfortunately, it seems as though this competition is not pregressing any further. Are people still intending to enter?
2006-12-19 [Yncke]: *points to previous comment* :P
2006-12-19 [Galain]: I've read it.. but how much time...? I mean, I have no idea how long a 'reasonable' period is...
2006-12-20 [H3_six]: I have a thumb sketch but it absolutely refuses to be drawn.
2006-12-21 [Galain]: Haha, that's no good!
2007-01-26 [Galain]: Ok, I'm fairly confident that I've waited a long enough period of time. The competition will officially close on Friday the 2nd of February.
