Panel 2 is a lie! Reply MikeV on November 20, 2012 at 12:10 am The somalian pirate joke is both cruel and hilarious at the same time! Oh God I’m dying xD Reply AckAckAck on November 20, 2012 at 1:33 am I think the problem is mainly on the seller. I mean he’s obviously on the wrong business. He should open moustche shop rather than eye patch shop. Reply Col Klink on April 5, 2013 at 11:56 pm Yeah. There is a distinct shortage of good ‘staches here.

The Internet insult lexicon starts with ‘Douchebag’ before working up to ‘Nazi’ via ‘Pedophile’. Everybody knows this. Reply ohplease on November 20, 2012 at 9:25 am I think I’ll start calling people “ninny” online. Just the novelty of it would get their goat Reply BugFanNo1million on November 20, 2012 at 3:46 pm Only a ninny would limit their insults to such crude expressions, Etrigan. Reply Col Klink on April 5, 2013 at 11:57 pm Huh? Listen, the Internet was invented so people could be anonymously rude to each other. I should know, my employer did it, albeit before my time there. Reply AvaJ on November 20, 2012 at 8:01 am I think if he advertised them as special Nick Fury patches, there could be a boom of business! I mean who is cooler than the man who can assemble the Avengers? *just sayin!* Reply Jared on November 20, 2012 at 8:47 am I love the store name, “the trendy cyclops”! Reply Codric on November 20, 2012 at 11:11 am Arr, those landlubbers! If you want to be a real pirate, you need your eye patch – along with your wooden leg and your hat/ headkerchief! Send those Somalian phonies to Davy Jones’ locker! Reply Jeff on November 20, 2012 at 12:14 pm LOVE “The Trendy Cyclops” proprietor’s mustache! And yes, the name of his shop is top-notch! Reply TSA on November 20, 2012 at 12:36 pm haha .. the eyepatch looks more like a ‘mono’kini Reply Shirubia on November 20, 2012 at 5:25 pm I think there is plenty of business for eyepatches! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EyepatchOfPower Just check all the names! Reply quilter5093 on November 20, 2012 at 7:32 pm In the 1973 movie The Three Musketeers, the villain Rochefort ( Christopher Lee), had an awesome eyepatch. He kept lifting it to see what was going on. His mustache wasn’t bad either. Reply LanceThruster on November 21, 2012 at 11:50 am A truly contemporary pirate costume would be a banker’s outfit. Government (and who they enable) is the most successful form of banditry. Reply MrSnow on November 24, 2012 at 12:44 pm love the last panel Reply Ol' Gui on November 25, 2012 at 11:18 pm My son just mentioned that if a cyclops were to wear an eyepatch – ” Wouldn’t that make me blind? ” How trendy could one be stumbling around? Like the Nick Fury eyepatch idea. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
