One of the things I love is the Web site Penny Arcade. It features a comic strip about video games. What I love about it is that it is very literary. Each comic strip comes with a few paragraphs of discussion, and very often it is quite high-minded, but never stuffy or pompous. One of the reasons for this is that the writer of the strip is absolutely in love with the English language. And so without further ado, I give you links to 3 of his comics which are supposed to be about video games, but in reality are all about wordplay:

Regarding "The Witcher" video game:

Regarding Jack Thompson's "racketeering" lawsuit against them:

Warning, foul language, maybe skip this one:

Hi Tony,

I see what you mean! I just read "The Witcher," and it was all about the proper and improper variations on the word "witch." Someone who loves language would love this! Good site!! Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Tony, these are so cute! I love wordplay! (Yes...I'm strange that way! aiwebs_011) Foul language aside, I found the Anomaly toon hilarious! The fact that it continues with the misunderstanding made me giggle even more! Thanks for posting these! I think they're great! I'll have to go back and read more when I can. Very Happy
