I haven’t read it yet, but from “Again With the Comics” comes this great alternate-history Fantastic Four bit:
“Milady, ’tis the clobbering hour” may be my new favorite tag line.
MONOCLE SMILE!!! =D Awesome find!
Finally! You’ve played to one of my strengths: overblown, quasi-Shakespearean language!
“Whoop-ass be upon thee!”
“Yea, verily: I fain would do thee pummelage!”
“Let butt-kick reign!”
“Let us commence ye downwade beatinge.”
I’m a Ren Faire veteran; I could come up with this crap all day…
Oh my God YEEEESSSSS!
So, as I compared my wife’s beauty to the glowing radiance of the sun, that leper, Wilson, the so-called “Pool of Death,” did scream directly into mine ear the name of Lady Beatrice Arthur. I demanded apology from the retched knave, and when one was not given, I did challenging him to a duel of honor.
Unfortunate that I misjudged his hand with the sword, as he verily did best me, and with much luck did he concede to spare my life. However, as one final humility, did he wrench mine undergarments into a wedge betwixt my buttocks. Curse him!
“Lady Beatrice Arthur”: does that mean what I think it means? If so, very slick; we should put it into Urban Dictionary.
Is this from the Marvel 1602 series by any chance?
I believe it is.
I had only just finished reading the first part of that series when Jeff posted this.
