    Default You lost me at orly.

    That's really it. Kinda sad - you could have done the joke without pandering to the idiot cliche.

    There are going to be jokes of all kinds, from deep and subtle to plain stupid. If you can't handle a throwaway gag or two, you were never going to be a fan. Bye.

    Its all part of the world. It really does make sense if you know where its coming from. If you didn't get most of the humor in the Final Fantasy III OotS strip, then you probably won't have as much fun reading Erfworld.

    I mean, I just realized that even the art style choice (why the lines are so thick and the backgrounds so detailed) is VG based. Thick-lined sprites moving around in a pre-rendered world. Brilliant.

    I find the Orlys amusing, though I'm not sure I get the reference. It looks to me like AIMspeak for Oh Really? Also, they remind me of the Seagulls in Finding Nemo.

    O RLY? Is a bizarre internet meme involving a owl (just like the one pictured) with the "words" "O RLY?" printed below.

    And yes, I didn't get the FF references in OotS either...seem to be more media-historical ignorant than I thought

    Every time I read about that word (or is it expression), I feel several brain cells crying out and committing suicide. That has got to be the stupidest Internet meme I've ever run across, and I've been online in pre-Kibology days.

    I've seen that owl pic many times, but I didn't put it together in the comic. I thought it was like griffons being gwiffons, so an owly was an orly ...

    I'm so ashamed :(

    And for a dumb question what game are they mocking with the moves? I must just be completely missing a lot of things in these comics.

    I think it is Warlords, for a number of reasons:
    The Chartacters are built like Characters from WL3. (Big heads, skinny bodies)
    They have stacks of eight units.
    Gwiffon move and bat move are identical to Griffon and bat move in WL2
    Tactical mistakes (Questing and neglecting defense rip out economic base)

    You know... though I was aware of the image, I always thought it was linked to the O'Reilly books for some reason. Silly me, Java must have eaten my brain.

    O RLY? (Actually I find it an excellent way to annoy anyone in a lightweight way when it's more or less appropriate. Hasn't failed me yet.)
