* Tropers/TheFarmboy: ''WebAnimation/DorklyOriginals'' is able to churn out some comics that are pretty funny to compliment their videos. But there was one that wasn't funny. The comic had it where you select one of the Kanto starters from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' with a humorous result. Except for Bulbasaur where Professor Oak [[KillItWithFire straight up kills the poor thing with a lighter]] and calls you an idiot for picking it. [[SarcasmMode As we all know, someone picking a Pokemon with type-advantages over the first two gyms is a complete retard. Good to know.]]

[[folder:Cyanide & Happiness]]
* eneuman96: [[http://explosm.net/comics/3786/ This]] ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'' comic. While I do think the "selfie stick" is a fairly obnoxious idea, the comic still comes off as way too mean-spirited, even by the standards of its usual humor.
* Tropers/CaptainTedium: For the most part, I found ''Cyanide & Happiness'' to be a mixed bag, with some jokes being quite clever and others being appalling and shameful attempts at shock value that were far more disturbing and offensive than they needed to be. The comic that made me swear off this series for good, however, was ''really'' deplorable. It has a woman giving birth to a baby and being informed that her child was born with two faces. The mother wonders how they'll be able to tell which face to remove and we see that only one of the baby's faces is crying, with the other face clearly being non-functioning. The last panel shows a stitch where the baby's crying face used to be, making it clear that the mother [[SkewedPriorities prioritized her child's crying being stopped over her child living a normal life]] and has doomed her baby to die of suffocation and starvation. I always found jokes about killing babies to be in rather poor taste, but this one was especially unforgivable.

* Tropers/CaptainTedium: ''Webcomic/MurryPurryFreshAndFurry'' was one of the worst webcomics I ever read, particularly because of many scenes being needlessly disgusting for the sake of shock value and the author at times coming off as being overbearingly pretentious with the [[TakeThat petty jabs]] he made toward other webcomics, even going so far as to call fans of ''Webcomic/{{Xkcd}}'' "functionally retarded". However, the absolute worst part of this comic for me would be the arc that [[BizarroEpisode ignored the series' main story to focus on]] a crossover between ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends'' and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', especially when Danny Williams from the former was depicted as an extremely unflattering and stereotypical Brony caricature by being fat, stubbly, and obsessed with making Fluttershy his wife. It was at that point that I finally gave up on giving this webcomic a chance. Fuck this shit!

* {{@/Fofa}}: I normally love ''Webcomic/AwkwardZombie'', but [[http://awkwardzombie.com/index.php?page=0&comic=091911 this is one strip]] I just can't defend. I never played any of the Professor Layton games and even I know that Layton would never slap Luke in a million years, but besides this, it plays child abuse [[DudeNotFunny for laughs]]. It hasn't stopped me from reading the strip altogether, but it almost did.

* Tropers/HawkOfCoul: The premise of ''Webcomic/TheWotch'' spinoff, ''WebComic/{{Cheer}}''. Especially the point where [[spoiler: one of the GenderBender cheerleaders remembers everything and decides not to let the other 'girls' know the truth about themselves because [[AssPull they aren't jerks anymore]]. Apart from the gigantic UnfortunateImplications this has (that apparently the only way to stop a man from being a jerk is [[InsaneTrollLogic turning him into a woman]]) you can do whatever you want with yourself, you sexist freak, but doing it for the others as well?]] It's not your decision to make!

** @/DontKillBugs: I have been known for being an extraordinarily patient man. I read all of ''Better Days'' and a good chunk of ''Original Life'' before I even knew a Naylor-hatedom existed. I still hold the theory that Fisk joined a completely legal black-ops group, and every single person on earth misinterpreted it. I still do not believe that Naylor and his webcomics are nearly as bad as the people on [[Website/ImageBoard Godammit Freehaven]] insist, and continue to state that said people are the worst trolls I have ever had the misfortune to meet. But when Naylor started a story arc about the [[https://jaynaylor.com/originallife/archives/2011/07/218.html sexual awakening]] of Tommy and Lucy's son Leo at the ripe old age of twelve, I threw up my hands and jumped ship. My respect for Naylor, which had been whithering slowly over the duration of the [[StrawCharacter uber-strawman]] Justice Defender arc, including its utter lack of an ending, finally croaked it and died. Congrats, Freehaven trolls, you finally won.

** The author tries to handwave it as "she did it off panel" and "eating beans isn't that hard to do." Okay, first of all, when did she get the opportunity to eat them? Cold was busy tenderizing her right up until she managed to slip away and collapse; am I to believe that she somehow, while being pummeled constantly by fists bigger than her torso, managed to pull a bean out of her glove and put it in her mouth before escaping Cold's barrage of punches? Second, she's fighting at 1,000 times normal gravity! How could she honestly manage to eat those beans in her wrecked state with that kind of force holding her down? And when I say "wrecked" I'm not exaggerating; Cold's first punch had her spitting up blood and when she got away from him, she was a battered, blood-soaked mess that could only stand for a split second before collapsing. She was so weak that her energy could only be sensed with great concentration. I get that she's super strong and all, but I simply cannot believe that she could even move a finger, much less get a bean into her mouth under all that force.

*** Apparently, according to the author, she always has sensu beans on hand. As with the case above, this was never once foreshadowed or even implied, and just comes across as a half-assed attempt to justify why she had them in the first place.

** You know the whole fight beforehand? Yeah, that's now been rendered entirely pointless, along with Cold's new forms. Cold had her on the ropes up until this point and then right at the most critical moment of the fight, "Aha, I've recovered thanks to my DeusExMachina! Now the fight is in my favor!" After all that buildup portraying Cold as a legitimate threat, he gets the rug yanked out from under him so that Bra can emerge victorious and unscathed. The entire chapter feels like it was nothing more than an opportunity to show off Bra, complete with NewPowersAsThePlotDemands (which are just as much an AssPull as the beans).
