On why Mad World isn’t nearly as offensive as it may seem at first glance.

  1. Kdansky says:

    Shall we continue the “I’m offended” debate here then?


  2. Rutskarn says:

    Let’s not and say we did.

    Actually, for posterity’s sake, let’s go ahead and say we didn’t, that we were in a different country at the time, and that (in a pinch) we don’t speak English.

    Oh, yeah, and funny comic.

  3. Shamus says:

    Kdanky: I did think it was funny we had that debate yesterday. The comic was already written, and I had to keep reminding myself that nobody had read it yet. :)

  4. Coyote says:

    The annoucers get less profoundly annoying when you vary your fight strategy and brutalize people in different ways. The kind of have one smarmy thing to say about everything.

  5. Vyolynce says:

    I’m just thankful Platinum gave us the option to turn down (or in my case, off) the BGM. Everything else is just over-the-top fun.

  6. Sam says:

    I still want to give it a try someday.

  7. Mark says:

    Very compelling lyrics.

  8. toasty says:

    Amazing laugh I had there… those lyrics were awesome. You should consider making a rap album or something… :P

    No, I’m joking actually… it should be death metal. *nods* That way I’ll actually buy it.
