Show off your best WoW-related jokes

zarhym facepalm
How do you know someone's been playing since Vanilla? Don't worry, they'll tell you.

...My apologies to Gewain, in this thread, because I've stolen his joke. It's definitely a smash hit as far as WoW jokes go, and I winced a little even as I laughed, because, well, I recognize myself in there, at least a little bit.

So far, most people seem to be sticking to the "clean jokes only" request of the original poster, which is nice to see. Not every single joke has struck me as entirely funny, but a couple have elicited a barking belly laugh from me, which I certainly appreciate. WoW has a deep enough subculture and has been around for long enough that I'm sure there's plenty of fodder for good jokes, at least from people who are more clever than myself. If you've got an EU account, maybe head on over to the thread and add your own, and if you don't, tell us what they are in the comments! I'm going to bug the heck out of my guild with my favorites, for sure.

Hey, what do rogues and noobs have in common? They both pick locks!*

April Fools' Day comes to the PTR courtesy of Wowhead

April Fools' Day comes to the PTR courtesy of Wowhead
If you haven't had enough of April Fools' Day quite yet -- and in light of Blizzard's joke no-show this year, maybe you haven't -- you'll enjoy Wowhead's celebration of this silly holiday in the form of what they tell us is new information about patch 5.3 on the PTR. So just what have we got to look forward to? We think the highlight is the new Earth Week holiday, in which we'll be cleaning up Azeroth and battling the forces of evil otherwise known as The Crown Chemical Co. We'll also be fighting a new boss called the Sky Sludge, which drops five epic rings that seem awfully familiar. But if that doesn't strike your fancy, there's also new cosmetic armor and auras, in-game Hearthstone, and the delicious-looking Doritos Locos Feast.

And, while we are pretty sure this is all a joke, Blizzard has been known to have a strange sense of humor before...

Sunday Morning Funnies: 98% agree

Another Sunday arrives, and now it is almost June! This means less than a month until servers flood with children, Barrens chat takes on new life, and we're all being asked for "golds" and dungeon runs. Savor the next couple of weeks.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Sheep are like bricks

We're nearing the end of May, and I'm trusting that all of you US players have been having a wonderful long weekend! For those of you who didn't get to go on vacation, or who snuck a laptop into your bags, here are the latest WoW-related comics.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Look at all the femurs

www.awkwardzombie.comThis week, we have a couple of comics that haven't updated because the authors are otherwise occupied. Namely, these are The Adventures of Disgraph T Dwarf and World of Warcraft, eh?. Enjoy your hiatus, Cadychan, and good luck with your story D (I can call you that, y'see, we're tight or something. Plus, you won't know if I'm really calling you Dan, Disgraph, or "Dwarf", which is slightly better than "You" but not quite as polite as "You there!", and I do like to antagonize Dwarves!).
  1. Awkward Zombie: Horse Remorse. I love the comment underneath!
  2. Cru the Dwarf is back up and running!
  3. Experience Points: Vincent gets a Mammoth, and reminisces about the old days.
  4. Check out the latest from Flintlocke vs. the Horde.
  5. GU Comics: A Touch Obvious. I highly recommend reading the story underneath it (as I always do, really).
  6. Check out the latest from LFG. My only complaint is the absence of the bunny. Usually he can be seen idling in the background, at least!
  7. Manic Graffiti: My Money's on an EU Guild.
  8. Massive Pwnage: Level Requirements.
  9. NoObz: Overcheatage. I think everyone knows how this feels.
  10. NPC: Diversion Tactics. My cats do something like this too, although I think they might just be gunning for my chair.
  11. Teh Gladiators: The Man's a Manimal.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Innovative posterior

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend! I have a nice list to help you kick-start your day. Unfortunately, it seems that Cru the Dwarf will not be updating this week, due to technical difficulties. The featured photo is not of his computer, but it seems he will need a new one before the comic can resume. In the meantime, you can donate, or express your overwhelming sorrow!
  1. Dark Legacy Comics: Common Descent.
  2. Experience Points: Murlocs vs. Fries.
  3. Extra Life: It's all made of ones and zeros.
  4. Flintlocke vs the Horde: War Party part 2.
  5. Shakes and Fidget: Practice Makes Perfect.
  6. Check out the latest from LFG.
  7. Wolfslatoxx from NoObz. I love that little robotic dude.
  8. NPC: Purple Death Puddles.
  9. Teh Gladiators: Double Trouble.
  10. The Adventures of Disgraph T. Dwarf: Standing Out.
  11. World of Warcraft, eh? It's like, totally In the Nick of Time.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Panda Attack!

NoObz is still on holiday, but Ding! has been updated. In other news, Disgraph has a new new site, because the new one liked to take a lot of naps. While everyone loves naps, they are not for websites. I have to say, I am loving the new design, although the text is a bit more difficult to read.

This week's list has some real gems, including a new comic:

Sunday Morning Funnies: Just a dream

www.darklegacycomics.comIt is March! You can grab your free gems from The Consortium in Nagrand (does anyone still do that?), chart out whether the month is starting as a Lion or a Lamb, or lament the hour of sleep you are going to lose mid-month. Other than that, read the comics!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Mind your Elders

A male Orc in a pink festival dressAs I'm sure you all have heard by now, one of our favorite comics, Flintlocke vs the Horde, is slated to be set aside. Its creator, Dave "Fargo" Kosak, landed a shiny new job at Blizzard helping to give the game we all love some extra oomph. Fortunately, the storyline won't just be dropped, and you can expect it to wind up sometime in April.

In response to reader Keyra's thoughts on last week's Ding! comic, I would like to offer my own. I would have to bet that almost every single person who has played WoW for any length of time at all does ponder why none of their farmers seem to have skulls, or why you can't get enough blood out of a giant monster to fill even one vial.

We've all joked about it too. I mean gee, if only I could learn to rip off Troll ears without dismembering them into tiny chunks, I'd be in business. The lame jokes crop up on almost every quest with a poor drop rate, and I don't personally feel that the comic took it any further than I ever have, or any of my uninspired friends (no offense guys). It isn't that there isn't a humorous element to it, but that it's been done better in-game while roaming around by ourselves.

I'm thrilled that you liked it, I just wanted to explain why so many of us are bucking it, other than that we miss the old stuff.

Enough rambling, here are the comics:
  • Cru the Dwarf: Deserous had better watch out, because someone intends to exact revenge. I don't blame him either, what Deserous did was mean. /sniffles.
  • Speaking of sad stories, maybe you ungrateful masses should start treating your Elders better. Dark Legacy Comics knows how they feel.
  • Experience Points knows what some of you really pray about (please don't send me hatemail, because I don't know what you pray about. It was all a gimmick to work this comic into a sentence when I haven't had my coffee yet). They also know that not all dogs make good anti-burlar hunter pets.
  • Flintlocke and his overzealous ladyfriend are suddenly in a hurry to flee the scene.
  • GU Comics: Lucky Red Envelopes. Now this orc isn't as respectful of his elders. Think of the poor elders!
  • Shakes and Fidget learn that Two is Better than One (or well, maybe not).
  • Check out the latest from LFG.
  • Manic Graffiti: Noobcow and Monster Anatomy 101.
  • NoObz: Laaag. Coincidentally, if you scroll down to the blurb beneath the comic, there's yet another confirmation that no one listens to their elders.
  • I was afraid to look. This week's Ding! is definitely an improvement of sorts. The story is funnier, although not really in the comic format. Maybe if it had been told by a talented comedic writer, or as entertainment on a Podcast? I'd even take it as a guildie tale over Vent in between pulls. Still, I suppose I like pictures of people with their mouths open to show that they are indeed talking.
  • Teh Gladiators: The Ten Storms. I love the artwork in this one!
  • By saying this, I will totally ruin any of the funny in the note from the author beneath the comic strip, but I totally choked on my water when I read the first part of the second paragraph. In all seriousness though, I'm one of this comic's biggest fans, so you totally have a following. The Adventures of Disgraph T. Dwarf: Lunar LoLs.
  • There is less beaver in the latest artwork from World of Warcraft, eh? than there was the comic before, but it is definitely the sexy we were all promised. Go girl power and however you say that nowadays.

Insider Trader: Love is in the Air edition

www.worldofwarcraft.comLove will soon be in the air, and it's time you worked out your game plan. Chances are that it won't be just the city guards and leaders that will catch your eye (or eye socket).

Whether you're looking to reel someone in, set up a romantic excursion, or send an enemy a delicious surprise, you'll find that preparation is the key. This year, crafted items are the hot new trend. What better to say, "Darling, I can't get enough of the way your eyes puss" than with handmade?

First, you have to look the part. For all of you gents out there, I recommend seeking out a tailor for your very own Tuxedo Jacket, Tuxedo Pants, and coordinating Tuxedo Shirt. Alternatively, a Festival Suit will have you standing apart from the crowd, while a Colorful Kilt will set up some easy access to um, cultural traditions.

For the gals, we have the lovely and sophisticated Festival Dress, or the elaborate and vaguely desperate White Wedding Dress. If you want to attract a different sort of attention, then try the Red Winter Clothes on for size! They aren't just for Winter Veil, and are snazzier than anything Victoria keeps secret.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Your nerf stick


This week, the Funnies are back on a Sunday that is actually a Sunday, and not a fake Sunday. While I do enjoy pretending, I figured I should probably keep it simple. The weeks where "morning" seems to mean "afternoon" are tricky enough!
  • It seems that Cru the Dwarf needs to hurry.
  • I hate being asked for heals. What do people think I'm doing other than staring at their bars, anyway? Still, healers shouldn't really walk away in the middle of a raid without saying they'll brb. Experience Points.
  • Blood Elves sometimes get a little carried away when it comes to power (or hair). This week on Flintlocke vs. the Horde, the main "belf" gets a taste of it. I don't think she listens well either, what with all of that rage. Luckily, in the end, she gets a new hair accessory! Flintlocke vs. the Horde.
  • Caught any coins lately? GU Comics: The Ruse.
  • Check out the latest from LFG.
  • Manic Graffiti will be undergoing some changes.
  • NoObz illustrates how Youth has changed over the years.
  • Unlike last week, when Ding! simply had not updated (perfectly preferable to the previous week), this week, there is indeed a comic. This was (is?) one of my favorites, so I'm hoping that it picks up again. If you really want to look, don't say I didn't warn you, while trying not to be blunt and trollish.
  • Put Down Your Nerf Stick! says Teh Gladiators.
  • Oh noes, Disgraph has not been updated! Nor was Dark Legacy Comics, come to think of it. The Scout Report also seems to be sans update, and its navigation bar is still a bit wonky. World of Warcraft, eh, also did not deliver on the promised sexy filler art. I'm not criticizing, I'm just QQ'ing. There's a difference. Clearly, our fave comic artists should always be around to entertain us for free.
It's a thin list. What's a gal to do? Improvise!

Sunday Morning Funnies: On a Monday!

www.darklegacycomics.comor, "They possess more flying fish than I expected."

Although it is Monday, this morning I am going to pretend that it is in fact, Sunday. After all, no one really likes Mondays, even if they're manic. Luckily for you, I have quite the list of comics for your enjoyment!
  1. Awkward Zombie has posted another WoW-related comic, Stinking With Portals.
  2. Cru the Dwarf is now on page 72 of his echoing through time.
  3. Dark Legacy Comics points out the No-Fly Zone. I lean towards agreeing with them that the general placement of said zone is inconvenient. It seems to be a conspiracy on the part of the Flightmasters to convince me to pay them to fly me to Coldarra or Sholazar Basin.
  4. Have you ever wondered what life would be like if your reputation gains worked the same way as in-game?
  5. Actually, have you ever considered bravely sending a special someone an in-game gift? Experience Points has.
  6. In Flintlocke vs. the Horde, there seems to be a disagreement about who should be included as an adventuring buddy.
  7. GU Comics is Looking for Clever. Actually, Woody is looking to whore hire himself out! Check out the various ways you can put him to work and get some cool, collectible, and/or custom stuff.
  8. Check out the latest from LFG.
  9. Manic Graffiti always gets me smiling! Check out, Noobcow and Lame Jokes Heard While Waiting for PuGs to Start.
  10. Massive Pwnage has an inkling of what might be better than WoW. You Should See PvP.
  11. I always knew Flapcat was better than Ally-bird! Air Superiority was determined this past week on Monkey Punchers.
  12. NoObz points out that, especially for noobs, World of Warcraft can be a source of Stress.
  13. I know that many of you last week were disappointed with Ding!'s re-return, and unfortunately, there's no new comic this week.
  14. Teh Gladiators: Ping-Pong.
  15. World of Warcraft, eh? warns, You Won't Like Me When I'm Angry.
  16. The Scout Report has posted #63 and I love it. Unfortunately, I found out that when I tried to hit "Previous" to see if I had missed any other comics since last Sunday, it took me back to #52. So I recommend either jumping back five comics, or just reading from #52 if you think you've missed a couple!
  17. From The Adventures of Disgraph T. Dwarf comes Nuts Make Me Giggle. On this musical-fruit-note, I end this week's list!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Duel for the birds

'Smiling' OwlThis week, I have a nice sizeable list for you all! It seems that most artists are back and hard at work. I also have added a new comic for the list, so get comfortable and start reading.

Sunday Morning Funnies: If you don't, the diabeetus will

icanhascheezburger.com
It's another Sunday, and slowly, the absent comic artists are returning. I know some of you have been asking about Shakes and Fidget, as well as Ding!, and though Ding! is still on a bit of a hiatus, Shakes and Fidget has updated. Even Dark Legacy Comics and Disgraph are back at it!

  1. Echoes Through Time is the latest from Cru the Dwarf.
  2. It's nice to see artists dedicated to their work, even while on vacation. Pencil and Paper for the win!
  3. Experience Points shows us that even pros can make hunter pet errors. Especially when he's been hanging out on voice chat.
  4. Episode 10, part 5, of Flintlocke vs. The Horde is For the Birds.
  5. Shakes and Fidget has finally updated, with All Good Things Come From Above.
  6. GU Comics demands, Show Me the Funny. You definitely have to read the blurb underneath the comic, if you aren't in the habit of doing so.
  7. Check out the latest from LFG.
  8. Manic Graffiti presents Noobcow and Now We Hate You For Reals.
  9. NoObz is Too Cute.
  10. From The Adventures of Disgraph T. Dwarf comes Tuskarr Troubles. If you're a little confused, check out last week's notes.
  11. World of Warcraft, eh? presents, We're Thinning Out Their Numbers.
