You could make marmalade too. O:
Thanks!
Well, the Smack Jeeves awards are over. The winner for best comedy went to Side Quests, a very deserving comic: http://sidequests.smackjeeves.com/

I gotta say though, I'm really happy to have been nominated out of the hundreds of comics out there, and couldn't have gotten it done without everyone's support! Specifically, I'd like to give a shoutout to Granmastern and Robybang for posting me up on the message boards and getting me in the comic spotlight and of course the 2010 awards.

In other news, I'm gearing up to release a podcast with a good buddy. He's 100x more funny than I am, and I get a lot of ideas just by talking to him. One of his quips on our latest recordings went like this:

"Who would vote for Wyclef as the president of Haiti?!"
-"Yeh, he couldn't even keep the Fugees together." Zing!

It's mostly considered racist once it stops being funny...

But on a serious note, I'm glad you brought that up. I was actually trying to tread carefully on the subject because I had to balance not insulting people, being funny and hopefully getting a point across. (J-Mo's comments on the last panel are pretty much how I feel about the subject).

I think we are all aware of the many stereotypes out there. And every person, no matter how hard they try not to has some prejudices. So it's important to acknowledge this instead of pretend it doesn't exist.
DEAL!
All right, but if it turns out one of your friends is bi-racial, you owe me half a black.

But hey, I got a question: When does parodying racism end up being racist?

I'll trade two of my black friends for your shiny albino.
Oh my god. I thought I was the only one... xD

Robybang, that'd be interesting... I like the sound of "The dental remix."

I actually don't mind the dentist in Japan... Sure they drag it out over a long period, but it's so cheap compared to America!
I hate going to the dentist in Japan. They like to stretch everything out over multiple visits. It's no wonder 80% of the population appear to have never been.
Though I'd like to see someone make a dentist drill dubstep or DnB remix. If you can do it with Justin Bieber, you can do it with a dentist drill.

I actually went to the dentist a bunch over the past couple weeks. I guess the only downside of having a dental drill with bass is that it might sound more like a chainsaw...
Phew, I can breathe again. I'm glad you're back.
Good to see the AC back in action. You got my vote (I did actually check out the competition).
I'm chuffed you're updating again!

The new season!
Here we are starting off season 2 with comic number 40!

Thanks for all who have supported me and continue to support the comic~ It's been a fun run at it so far and things are looking good for the new season.

For those who haven't voted, please check out the Smack Jeevez 2010 award page, The Awkward Communicator is in the final running for "Best Comedy!" There are plenty of great comics to be discovered, so it's definitely worth a look~

Thanks for the encouragement all~ I'll be back on the scene, I just want to get some comics lined up so I can keep to regular updates if/when work starts piling up.

And The Dude- I didn't even think about that! I'll be sure to ask for some the next time I need a break!
I'm really sorry to hear that, I would have totally written you some guest strips, if it would have helped.
LOL I LOVE YOU
Hiatus + RSS = no worries. Enjoy your break; we look forward to your next strip, whenever it comes. =)

I'm with Holy on this one. You've got a clever thing going here, don't give up on it so easily!
