Tjames
Tjames
So you really use Comic Chat?
Yup, it's Comic Chat Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Uh, I believe it's just MICROSOFT CHAT now, Gentlemen.
Tjames
Tjames
Cool! And I guess you log it, and you can just pull out the best stuff later?
We layout the strips with MSCHAT and then do some postCHAT editing Rands
Rands
Actually no... We have an humongous archive of FUNNY THINGS WE'VE SAID... Rands
Rands
Tjames
Tjames
Me and Snatcher tried to use Comic Chat once, but Failed.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Golly, pants, what do you think about that?
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
<insert pants response here>
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
I just wanted to add in some insertion points.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Sorry, carry on.
So, you go find your favorite, fire up Comic Chat, type in the CRAP, and VIOLA! SERIOUS GAYNESS Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
!
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
That's really crazy.
Tjames
Tjames
Oh, so it's really a recreation of previous gayness, in other words.
Correct Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
But, seriously, doesn't using Microsoft Comic Chat put a kind of cap on the popularity of the strip?
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Like, eventually some MS bastard is going to find out and come kill you all in your sleep.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
They will rage like Thor in your bungholes with legal whahoozits.
A lot of folks have NONE CLUE that we use Comic Chat... Others rip on us for it... Microsoft is trying to kill MSCHAT, so less and less people have a clue Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Yeah, I was talking to someone about Jerk City and he thought it was all hand-drawn.
Tjames
Tjames
Yeah, I was reading your press mentions and whatnot, and a lot of people seemed to have NO clue that you were doing anything 1) based on IRC or 2) with a program like Comic chat. They just thought you were all really disturbed.
Actually, we got concerned at one point when we got flooded with MSFT hits... so I reviewed the license included with MSCHAT... turns out it's the same one as they ship with Office. Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
You have a reference to some crazy comic artist on your site...
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Shit, I can remember the name. Frank something.
Jim Woodring -- He did the art for MSCHAT -- He loves us. We love him. Rands
Rands

Mr. Bad
Ah-HAH!
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Really, he's seen your site?
We received a very nice letter from him recently asking for a reciprocal link and ripping on MSFT. Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
!!!
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
That's really great. But wouldn't Microsoft own the license to all the characters and stuff?
No, it's the same license as Word. I'll explain: Rands
Rands
Tjames
Tjames
If you guys get in trouble for this stuff, you should go on the Palace and do it there. Then you could be generic happy face type people, who could possibly wear hats. Or not.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
NO! No way!
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
The characters are invested with too much personality now, Tjames!
It'd be like if one of you guys used WORD and wrote a letter threatening to kill the President Rands
Rands
Microsoft's license says something like "We assume no responsibility for any goofy shit that you do with our products" Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Excelente!
Quite. Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Man, you're in the clear. I can't believe it.
Tjames
Tjames
Yeah, but you don't make money off it yet, do you?
ARE YOU TALKING EBUSINESS!?!?!?1 Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Yeah, tjames, so therefore it's totally invalid.
Tjames
Tjames
I'm talking GAYBUSINESS.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Yeah, what's your BUSINESS PLAN?
Tjames
Tjames
How will these windows affect my original documents?
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Do you have a BURN RATE?
Jerkcity's popularity was a surprise. Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Really?
And when you look at the hits/day, you think 'JESUS WE CAN MAKE CA$H HERE SOMEHOW" Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
SO you underestimated the public's appetite for cocksucking jokes?
But we have day jobs and ECOMMERCE IS HARD WORK. Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
MAKE MONEY FA$$T in your OWN HOME
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
WITH PRICKS
Tjames
Tjames
We tried to make money with porn for awhile.
I'd expect t-shirts, bumperstickers, and CRAP LIKE THAT Rands
Rands
tjames: who hasn't? Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
That'd probably cross some line for MS, though, I bet.
Tjames
Tjames
Yeah, but we took pictures of ourselves and stuck them on pictures of people fucking. So that's the different part.
Agreed. I'd imagine we'd use popular sayings rather than artwork Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Like, you can do a screenshot of the Paperclip, but you can't make a T-shirt.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Yes, that would work wonderfully.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
But, selling T-shirts is a major pain in the ass, too.
Selling anything on the 'net is a hassle WHEN YOU'RE FAT AND LAZY LIKE US Rands
Rands
Tjames
Tjames
I think Pigdog can relate to that.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
So, the Jerk City content is mostly stuff from a long time ago?
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Do you get together now, and then feel all pressured to be funny?
No. We're always online in this "chat room" -- tomorrow's jerkcity could be from a conversation tonight Rands
Rands
Tjames
Tjames
They don't have to be funny. They just have to say things like "Perhaps bonghits will fix my makefile." That's just the kind of thing you say when you do too much IRCing.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Good, because it'd be really lame to have a lot of Milli Vanilli jokes in tomorrow's Jerk City.
heheheh -- a great line. Rands
Rands
In this "chat room Rands
Rands
" Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Yes, you can even have 4 plain panels, with nothing in them.
We're always in character... It's pretty sick. Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Well, are the characters -you-?
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Or, rather, how you'd goof around anyways, with other people?
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Or do you become rands only in this particular environment?
Yes, each character is "us" and has it's own "characteristics" Rands
Rands
Tjames
Tjames
Who does the technical part of putting together the site?
Pants does most of the webmastering at this point because he's a PERL WIZARD Rands
Rands
Tjames
Tjames
Is it automated stuff, like dynamic HTML?
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
<insert pants response here>
He's always tinkering WITH SHIT AND BREAKING THINGS but HE'S FAT Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Do you mean PHAT or FAT?
Both, actually. Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Like the programmer guy in Jurassic Park?
Less annoying. Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
OK, I'm getting a read on him.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
So, have you seen this page? http://manero.pitas.com/ ?
Tjames
Tjames
Sounds sort of like Johnny Royale.
Looking.. Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Oh, I figured that was one of your folks.
DID SOMEONE UNPLUG THE INTERNET!?!?!?!?!??! Rands
Rands
Still loading... Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Tjames keeps the INternet in a box under his sink.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
It sometimes gets drippy.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad

Rands
Tjames
Tjames
The cool thing about Mr. Bad is that he never has real questions for interviews.
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
So, I have you CORNERED now.
Ah, Leisuretown -v- Jerkcity. Rands
Rands
SO WHAT'S THE QUESTION? Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad

Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
I thought it was just coinky-dink, and then I saw that page, and I was further intrigued.
What's the question? :) <--- SMILIE TO INDICATE MY GAYNESS Rands
Rands
Tjames
Tjames
So you admit you cannot answer the question owing to gayness?
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Is there really no connection, except respect and admiration and shit? :-O <- cock face

Arkuat enters the IRC channel.

Tjames
Tjames
Go away arkie!
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
Arkuat! Jesus!
That's the connection. Leisuretown and Jerkcity production is entirely separate, but we do know each other Rands
Rands
Mr. Bad
Mr. Bad
We're doing an interview!
