Suggestion: Immediate Self Contradiction get usage counts

This one didn't even occur to me in YKTTW, but now that I think of it I think it's pretty fitting for the trope...

Gentleman Troper!
I like the image but would prefer it without a caption.
Special trousers. Very heroic.

I see the Awesomeness.
Yes, Deboss supports.

The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.
Agree with #2, good image and I like the idea of linking to the original, but the caption doesn't make sense without the panel (and strip) it's in.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.
Bigger version, (not sure whether that's better or worse, just putting it out there) with the link just saying "context" instead of including the quotation.

Better. (Caption, not image.)

Worse. (Prefer a little smaller and a lot sharper.)

lol, image not caption. Image worse, caption better; though I bet we can do way better than "context".

I also prefer the sharper one.
[up][up] I agree that we can, but I'm just not sure what to replace it with.

Bump.

One idea that since came to mind is "either he's contradicting himself, or he's saying he flung it from some giant slingshot rather than throwing it."

+1 for the sharper version. No caption; put the link to the full strip in the examples if it's not already there.

[up] It's not there. Should I put it in comics, or create a new folder for newspaper comics? (Normally I wouldn't ask, but thinking about this thread makes me uncertain.)

It's a newspaper comic. The "books" are collections of newspaper comics.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

Yeah, make a new folder for Newspaper Comics.

As the one who folderized that (pretty much everything had been classified as Western Animation), you might as well just move Comics to Newspaper Comics, since IIRC the only entry in there WAS a newspaper comic (just checked, it's Dilbert). Wasn't sure if we had a separate category for that or not.

[up] Yeah, I'll scrap the comics folder while I'm at it.

I got really lazy launching that trope. o.o

EDITED IN: I pre-emptively edited it according to the assumption that the page image would be added. I'm guessing it has enough go-ahead to be put up now anyway?

Actually, caption-wise, something like this?

Calvin's clearly got a future as a lawyer.
Moon
Solid.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.
I'm fine with this.

+1 for the last caption suggestion. It and the sharper version of the pic are up, potholed, and tagged; locking up.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
