Web comics know how to
make us laugh
. Here's some of our favorite moments from the digital printing press.
Webcomics with their own Funny Moments pages:
Stage Select has several, including a tiny digital bird that constantly fries Megaman, and the Trope Namer for This Banana Is Armed. (  and )
I normally like , but my opinion of it had CAD lowered recently. After the moment in question, several comedy-based strips were made, but I think CAD got back to normal with this one.
The 10 Doctors When the Fourth Doctor declares himself to be number one.
Later, the same Doctor completely owns the Seventh.
Fourth Doctor: Well... I'm sure I can come up with something. Seventh Doctor: Heh heh... you mean you're sure we can come up with something. Fourth Doctor: No.
The author's outdone himself again, with , a Da 10 Docs crossover with Doctor Who . Wile E. Coyote plays the Master. That is all.
Looney Tunes The last talk between Four and Five.
Fourth Doctor: When the time comes, and you know the end is near... When you're down to that final moment and you know it's all over and regeneration is about to take over... I want you to punch yourself right in the nose.
And he's at it again with A Time to Kill. Four strips in, and Ten has just totally blown 007's cover.
How's life in the SECRET SERVICE treating you?
is full of these, with the best ones in recent memory revolving around the Sam and Fuzzy reiteration tool Dr. Crab, a self-proclaimed psychologist who also happens to be a talking crab.
Bystander: Quick! Put on your tights!
Poor Self-Image Man: NOT WITH THESE THIGHS! *scoops ice cream out of bucket*
Flintlocke's Guide to Azeroth. Beaverstick, Beaverchucks, Chuckshot, heck, anything Flintlocke use as a weapon.
"Ramming speed!" "What are we ramming?" "EVERYTHING!"
Colin reads your emails!
: Gone with the Blastwave This entry
In , Brendan accidentally walks in on May when she's changing. The following conversation ensues:
: This peeping tom saw my breasts!
: Agh! You've ever thought of closing the door when you're changing? Or maybe...
wearing a bra
May and her mom
What's a bra? Brendan
: ! ...I'm gonna love this place!
: Bill has two girls fight over him, and his landlord witnesses. Fletcher Apartments Hilarity Ensues indeed!
: after the conclusion to a relatively serious plotline, Tony, a Real Life Comics Mad Scientist Gadgeteer Genius, survives a nuke, atmospheric re-entry and a fall from . He explains to the rest of the cast that he used his science orbit to make himself completely invulnerable. As he puts it, "I'm not bullet-proof... I'm just . And then he says:
proof." Dave: And you don't think this is a tad overpowered?
Tony: Hell, are you kidding? It's way overpowered! It's ludicrous for one person to possess this much power! I it.
love From Tailsteak's website comes this gem: "The Stupidest Thing I Have Ever Said".
Pretty much anything from .
Elf Only Inn Especially so in its early days. When it stopped being a Cut and Paste Comic, the gags also lessened considerably.
From , In Wilys Defense Cut Man's demonstrations of how mentally depraved Kefka is. Includes buttsex and general insanity.
Kefka: YEAH, CHOKE ON THAT, DOMA! I EVEN PISSED IN IT! I HOPE YOU TASTE MY URINE WHILE YOUR CHESTS EXPLODE IN FIERY POISON!
Cyan: Thou art a dick.
Two Lumps: Eben and Snooch's visit to the vet (storyline starts here). Snooch's psychotic episode (brought on by a rectal thermometer) is a highlight.
has plenty, some good examples that stand out being the Sonja subplot of The Wotch Date Night of Doom and most times Cassie flips into Stalker with a Crush mode. Also, Sy kos in general.
The spinoff Cheer! has 32's actions leading into and during the basketball game that wraps up the first storyline, as well as the similarly-timed Burger Fool storyline with Lindsay and the main girls.
has what is almost certainly the best use of the phrase Killroy And Tina "So long, suckers" .
ever This strip is one of the funniest in 's run.
Jack And in :
DM of the Rings Aragorn: Hail to the king, baby! Aragorn, son of Andúril, is back!
DM: Andúril is the name of your sword, dumbass.
Banquo in drag. Seriously, it may be a dream, but just try not to crack up.
Stickman and Cube in this one.
After ended, the character Kestrel showed up in Queen of Wands only to get hit by a red car. This spawned a short Something Positive meme in several webcomics (for instance, two characters from were in the car). And then the mostly-defunct Checkerboard Nightmare updated... with the author putting up an ad indicating he was selling his car, which was red and had a "slight dent in front". This turned out to be Absurd Notions completely coincidental.
is normally pretty funny for a Chopping Block Black Comedy, but this strip is one of its best.
is up and down in quality sometimes. Loserz This one is definite up.
: " Original Life Death has no bedtime". Abigail sure takes that Clouseau reference seriously.
always brings the funny; possibly the best is " Adventurers!! That orange is me."
" No, man. I'm just Luke Wilson."
: Building 12 Klaus's entire list of demands when he takes over Attica. "Number... um... four? The sun will now rise in the North and set somewhere between Kansas and Budapest promptly before my bedtime. As a contingency, if the Sun refuses to comply within three days, wherever the sun rises will then be deemed North, and I may in my infinite mercy be willing to negotiate the bit about Budapest."
As a rule is pretty much a straight action-fantasy strip... The Challenges of Zona except when Yatta-ta comes to town
Kickin' Rad: "A W-Class-WHATNOW?"
This strip of Touhou Nekokayou, specifically to the punchline. Even though that CSI: Miami joke has been used before, it was particularly awesome this time because of the shadow of Hisou Tensoku still looming.
This exchange from the Create.swf Adventures spinoff:
Daiyousei: Yeah, you got me there. I have a birth defect — I'm actually intelligent, it's why I'm called Daiyousei.
Daiyousei: It is for a fairy.
Dead Of Summer has 'A good plan!? I got a freaking WIENERMOBILE!' and 'By the Power of Greyskull!'
Pretty much the entirety of the webcomic Shark Attack!. The comic itself consists of a shark attacking someone in a different way each time.
In the Fan Webcomic , Chiyo/Dorthy, Osaka/Scarcrow, Yomi/Tinman and Tomo/"Wildcat" are in sight of the Emerald City. However, the Wicked Yukari of the West put something in the Poppie Field. Azumanga Daioh: The Wizard of Oz And it's not sleeping draught. The girl's expressions in the last panel sell it.
FreakAngels features this litte exchange.
Luke's fourteen-page speech/rant/deranged series of revelations after he comes back from the grave with a gaping hole in his head. He hams it to heaven (with appropriate poses), the others keep interrupting him (to his disgruntlement), it's impossible to ignore the lovingly detailed and gory ), until KK hole through his fucking head (which he complains about, along his visions beyond death being figures wreathed in glorious light and deific sound who said to him, "Luke, you're still a complete wanker," finally gets fed up with his blithering and knocks him out with a chair. Miki draws a penis on his face while he's unconscious. It's all just...wonderfully silly. And well-deserved.
String Theory has some pretty funny moments, but this particular conversation takes the cake.
: No Need for Bushido Did you just call me a walrus?
Ow, my sanity is a fusion of the Cthulhu Mythos and Ah! My Goddess. Observe this first meeting of the Belldandy stand-in and the potential Sayoko stand-in.
Furmentation: The worst is behind you... literally. Cue giant bird snatching up protagonist from behind.
How Not To Run A Comic, this strip and its middle panel. There's just something about how utterly ridiculous it is that really tickles the funny bone.
How about a Funny Moment Of Crowning?
. Casey and Andy Satan is a good Christian.
Registered Weapon is rather like The Adventures of Dr. McNinja as a police procedural. Nonetheless, some moments manage to stand out. The police blotters in particular. Like this one.
: Manly Guys Doing Manly Things This is how you react.
: Unintentionally Pretentious "You... befouled my talking color detector?!"
The last panel of this page of Ye Gods definitely counts.
Actually I think the early strips have so much it may be safe to say that in part this comic runs on Rule of Funny.
Wizards And Wands Hedwig has Bilingual Bonus. "Quoi de nuef [sic], homies?"
Hermione's plans for her character.
Hermione: I chose a cat familiar for a +3 bonus to stealth...
GM: Stealth? What on earth...
Hermione: It's for my assassinate ability when I dip into ninja levels. Duh.
GM: Okay. Daniel, when you said this girl player from your old group was good...
Harry(Daniel): Yes. Perhaps I should have clarified. She's terrifyingly good.
Hermione's obsessive attitude towards the Sorting Hat.
Hermione: Aaaah! BAD TOUCH! BAD TOUCH! GET OUT OF MY MIND OOGIE BOOGY!
Harry: I suddenly find myself not jealous anymore.
Hermione: Augh, bad magic hat! I'm gonna make an opposed will save to force it under my control.
GM: Actually, before you do that, Mcgonagall removes the hat. You have been sorted into house Gryffindor, the house of...
: Wait whaaaaat!!? You mean I'm not chosen to recieve the awesome magical hat of
GM: ... No! The Sorting Hat is not loot!
Hermione: magic... item... not... loot? WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN
Hermione: ... One day hat... One day you will be mine.
( Sunset Grill link) brings us several, including:
The very first comic.
Lena's method of talking Ana out of murder.
After discovering his fellow officer had not merely been taking advantage of a local girl for free sex, but had all-but-literally thrown her to the wolves to protect his own career:
Travis: Permission to punch Specialist Jameson in the face, sir. Isidro: Denied. The Commander called dibs.
Ria's reaction to her guard being given a verbal dressing-down during a game of Go Fish.
Julia calls Denny a delinquent.
Kris: ...what look? Gabrielle: He just — looks, you know? An' you start to squirm an' explain, only it comes out soundin' stupid an, an' selfish an' bad an'... an' he just stares until you run outta words, an' you want to go right through the floor, but you can't. That look. Kris: And they call me dramatic. Trust me, I've been in trouble since I was born, and I've never once had someone stop me with just a — [ Kris sees Lena, giving her the look] Kris: — eep.
Julia's doctor absolutely not recommending buying medicine from drug dealers. Followed by Julia demonstrating her complete inability to deal courteously with drug dealers.
"Uh... can we go? I'm getting this creepy feeling like heavily armed people glarin' at my back."
After Fausto gets Ian a job as a mechanic.
"The Walls Have Eyes" Willy.
Julia's conversation with Alain about the shortcomings of the "drug [Murdoch's] food until he acts rationally" plan.
]: ... so you dump some more in an' then he's on the floor an' goin' all blue an' you got to do that weird shit with — [
notices Julie's horrified expression
] with the, uh,
stuff up his nose
was joking too
why he was eatin' all his meals straight from the can.
Penn's rant to Hans about how Nash doesn't understand dealing with tetes ... that happens to mention in passing the contrast between Sullivan and the normal "hormonal, emotionally damaged teenagers with access to heavy weaponry".
Penn: This is valuable ranting, by the way. You should at least pretend you're paying attention. Hans: ... sorry, I think my brain shut down in terror after you said 'teenagers with heavy weaponry.' Penn: Ah, yes. The other problem.
Ian convinces Fausto to let him sleep in the spare room ... possibly unintentionally.
Ian: The couch would be more than enough, but I fear it is the friends I am short on. No, no. I will simply find another bridge. One hardly notices the noise and smell after a while, and they say this winter will be mild. I doubt my arm will freeze to the ground more than once or twice more.... Fausto: You are either very oblivious or very cunning, and I'm damned if I can tell which.
In this RWBY fan-comic, Pyrrha is watching Jaune and Ruby from a distance, wondering why she feels so reluctant to walk up to them. Blake sees this and sneaks up behind Pyrrha; the following conversation ensues.
Pyrrha: B-Blake? What are you doing here? When did you- How long were you-
Talonflame is introduced as a new Fire-Flying type, and a fire bird on top of it much like Ho-oh and Moltres before it. Only a certain bird isn't too happy about it...
