Webcomic / Farchie Archie
Created by Neil Cicierega
(of Potter Puppet Pals
and "The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny
" fame), Farchie Archie
was a "copyright-gnawing" webcomic that was released sporadically to Comic Genesis
between 2002 and 2005. Though all of the characters were obviously based on illustrations clipped from Archie Comics
, they all acted a little...off. Nearly every Farchie Archie
strip can be viewed here
This webcomic provides examples of:
- Casanova Wannabe: Archie. Memorable examples include dressing up as Fred Flintstone in order to use "I can make your Bedrock" as a pick-up line and dressing up as a rabbit and hiding in a burlap sack in order to use another awful pick-up line, "I'm an animal in the sack!" Cue Betty and Veronica beating him with clubs.
- "Now you're a parapalegic [sic] in the sack!"
- A Party, Also Known as an Orgy: The entire cast of Farchie Archie has an orgy, and Archie gets pregnant as a result. Or so he thinks...
- Shout-Out: In one strip, a character sings the chorus to "Everything You Know Is Wrong". Also, there was a Harry Potter parody which contained the line, "No, Harry, I am your parents!" Neil makes a nonsensical reference to Farchie Archie in an early Lemon Demon song, "Hyakugojyuuichi 2003": "I got fired by a guy named Farchie, he was full of starch..."
