Pierre Vs. The Manosphere: A Man Boobz-inspired web comic

pierre

Those of you who aren’t regular readers of the comments here may not be aware of A Voice for Pierre, the hilarious new webcomic by regular Man Boobz commenter Katz, inspired by Man Boobz trolls and dopey Boobz more generally. Here’s the first strip, about a poor paranoid MRA afraid to take his sons to Canada lest they be attacked and possibly killed by wild feminists. Naturally, it’s based on a TRUE STORY.

You can find more Pierre at the A Voice for Pierre website.

Wooo, comics.

And perdant can’t be NWO. I could actually read through the sentences without feeling like I was at TimeCube.

@LBT

I got kicked off the NYE Timecube Challenge* for being too good at it, which I attribute to two things:

1. Timecube is actually quite poetic, it’s easy to settle into an easy meter and there is use of repitition. Once you settle into the sound of the words rather than the content, it’s very easy to read.

2. NWOslave. He is excellent practice for this kind of thing.

*Read Timecube. Don’t laugh. When you laugh, pass on to other participants.

RE: CWA

My equivalent of TimeCube was when I was trying to read medieval proto-Kabbalah treatises. It was this bizarre experience of seeing English words strung together into English phrases in English sentences… and having NO IDEA what the hell they were going on about. That was always how I felt reading NWO. He was like Rorschach, given Internet and without sentence fragments.

I made it through more than a page of The Eye of Argon at a public reading.

Even with practice that’s hard, because by the time it gets to you the previous laughing sessions have loosened your bowels, and tightened your guts, and all it takes is one person to sn*gger and all is lost.

OMG THE EYE OF ARGON! GRIGNR! *dazed happy eyes* My equivalent was really bad g0y porn at my bachelor party.

@LBT

I could kinda see NWO making sense, if you accepted the following:

1. The universe, or at least Western society, is centred around NWOslave and/or the NWOcock.
2. The universe, or at least Western society, thrives entirely on angering NWOslave or frustrating the NWOcock.
3. NWOslave is the only one actually aware of this.

If I knew how to put together an RPG system, I would make one out of some of the weirder stuff MRAs had proposed, and then add wizards.

I tried editing the Eye of Argon into something only mildly bad.

I think it was about 1983 I first encountered…

“From where do you come barbarian, and by what are you
called?” Gasped the complying wench, as Grignr smothered her lips
with the blazing touch of his flaming mouth.
The engrossed titan ignored the queries of the inquisitive
female, pulling her towards him and crushing her sagging nipples
to his yearning chest. Without struggle she gave in, winding her
soft arms around the harshly bronzedhide of Grignr corded
shoulder blades, as his calloused hands caressed her firm
protruding busts.
“You make love well wench,” Admitted Grignr as he reached
for the vessel of potent wine his charge had been quaffing.
A flying foot caught the mug Grignr had taken hold of,
sending its blood red contents sloshing over a flickering
crescent; leashing tongues of bright orange flame to the foot
trodden floor.
“Remove yourself Sirrah, the wench belongs to me;” Blabbered
a drunken soldier, too far consumed by the influences of his
virile brew to take note of the superior size of his adversary.

Etc.

Really, not having an actual copy, in all it’s mimeographic horror, takes away so much of the… pleasure.

Oh, CWS… here, have something strong to drink, and a hug, and a copy of The Hobbit.

I’m ok, it just reminds me of me at 14, listening to the teachers who said “use lots of adjectives” and “use the thesaurus to expand your vocabulary” which turns out to be a hilariously bad thing to say to an Aspie kid with an already very large vocabulary…

5 adjectives per noun, telling everywhere, and I capped it off with ‘hexahedral’… somehow my creative writing coursework (for English) got an A*.

*epic shame*

I wish they all could be NWOian,
I wish they all could be NWOian,
I wish they all could be NWOian prose….

5 adjectives to every noun.

I’m sitting here after work reformatting my article manuscript from a “normal” citation format to one where I have to use ascending numerals to reference each article in the body, then number them in order in the reference section. Plus, convert all journal names into Index Medicus format, which I had not heard of until today.

I’m bored. But my partner made dinner, so I’m still managing to do misandry!

Can I never see the word(s) NWOcock again? That’s one mental imagine I never needed!

Maybe if you pictured it as the glowing cone of light thing that they use to censor some anime it would be less painful?

He’s already a black hole (of logic) in my head, so that just might work, thank you!

It’s almost funny, isn’t it? When I was younger I wrote way “older” than I was. Long sentences, unusual vocab, all that kind of crap.

Then I took some creative writing classes where I was told things like:

Write like you talk**
Use adjectives and adverbs sparingly
Write so people understand**
Avoid “as” clauses (harder than you think) and overly long sentences

Now I write much more clearly and simply. And I’ve come to associate the loads and loads of descriptive crap and $50 words with immature writing. (Of course there are other ways to write badly and this is just one of them.)

**I am well aware that some people talk like 80-year-old English professors, including (but not limited to) 80-year-old English professors. Unless you are writing for an audience of 80-year-old English professors, however, you probably should not write like that.

“80-year-old English professors”

Or 80 year old Latin profs, or 80 year old Roman history profs (at least, I think that’s what that course was, he went on so many tangents I’m really not sure!)

Same guy, and he was awesome. Not even I can relate a tangent back to the main point like he could though (and anyone who’s been around here long knows that I do love my tangents 🙂 )

No, no, no! The rest of the world or at least the wimminz of the world age 14 and up all know this. They are doing it deliberately because they are slutty slut sluts of slutography.

I don’t entirely write as I talk; there’s a big difference between the pieces I write for vocal performance and the pieces I do for reading. (And those differ INTENSELY from my comics work; it’s an old joke that you can tell when a writer does comics because they put captions and text EVERYWHERE.) But I do try to write simply and understandably.

That’s just because I have a special dislike of jargon. For the past five plus years I’ve been trying to make the world of mental difference and mental illness something ordinary people can understand. To use language in a way that inhibits clarity (unless you’re doing writing sleight-of-hand to distract the reader’s focus) is completely against what I stand for.

I write pretty much as I talk. With lots of parentheses. 😉

“If I knew how to put together an RPG system, I would make one out of some of the weirder stuff MRAs had proposed, and then add wizards.”

That is a FANTASTIC idea.

Imagine Ridcully trying to deal with NWO. It’d be like the Bursar on nasty pills.

Hey, maybe that’s what NWO needs – dried frog pills!

Actually I’d like to see NWO handed over to Granny and Nanny.

heheheh

Radiant Sophia — I just forwarded your comment to my not-an-ex, ze’s probably too busy to do it, but already wrote one system and might be interested. Shameless plug, ze’s the brain behind Averice Industries.

If you just want a D&D based system, I just might be able to wrangle one in other words (I’d totally play that 🙂 )
