This comic, unlike most podcasts, is not sponsored by Slack. Or Basecamp. Or, while we're at it, Naturebox.

First off, for my mom that will read this comic, please don’t ask me about this one. But here’s a link to a definition of Netflix and chill, so you don’t have to ask me about it.

This is what Mufasa meant when he talked about the circle of life.

Next time, we’ll cover the bit about how Twitter is turning into Facebook.

This comic was my last one for the “I Love Charts” collection, which was unfortunately has shut down for the time being. So you can expect a few less charts around here, as I won’t be cross-posting the ones that were premiering on Medium.com.

I did, however, post my full “bike theft” story on Medium as it seemed to lend itself to the format. I’ve been amazed how many people have commented (mostly in person) how much they followed along with the story. So, you can read the whole thing here.

Baltimore Comic Con

That was this past weekend,and it was a lot of fun! I went into the weekend expecting to set up and have a table and sell comics and things, but unfortunately my busy work schedule and lack of stable mental reserves of energy got in the way. If you looked for me at my table, I apologize. I was there both afternoons socializing with the rest of the Super Art Fight crew, but I didn’t have it in me to lug giant suitcases 160 miles round trip and spend every waking moment worrying about selling things. So, like many of you, I spent my “time off” hanging out at a convention. I haven’t just hung out a con in so long, it was glorious! Thank you to all of you who came by and chatted. I even somehow wound up selling 2 books, despite not really having a table “set up” at all.

SPX Next Weekend

SO. EXCITED. FOR. SPX.

I respect a women's right to choose whether or not she wants a muffin.

So tonight got interesting. I got home and was following the #SB5 coverage in Texas (abortion laws, filibusters, etc.) and saw this tweet:

 

So I posted this:

Clearly that got a little out of hand. (Thanks for sharing it, guys! Actually happened.) We’re all still figuring out what’s happening, but right now in this day and age I didn’t think to turn on my TV (which got paused on Netflix 4 hours ago and I never went back) I just turned to Twitter and Facebook. I’ve been watching the YouTube stream and now Christopher DiDo’s uStream ever since. I’ll update more in the morning or something.

YES they tried turning it off and on again.

This happened. Don’t worry, it’s fixed now.

The System 592: Intercestuous

Thanks to my friend Kerry, who was complaining about sites being “in beta” to me. Truth is, “beta” used to mean something. Nowadays it just means “don’t judge me based on this thing you’re seeing it’s going to get better I promise”, which is something that I pretty much wish I could say all the time.

The System Guest Comic: Blaine Rogers

Today’s guest comic comes from Blaine Rogers, all the way from High Wycombe, England. He writes about the comic:

It’s about philosophy. Sort of.

All I can say is that everyone in England has a sweet accent. So I believe him.

WHAM. That’s gotta be the biggest damn comic-chart there ever was, right?

UPDATE: HELP IRONY HAPPEN! Here’s today’s comic on Reddit. Here it is on BoingBoing. Post it in places and let me know where or post in the comments!

Thank you oh-so much to this joint endeavor of The System and Caldwell of Loldwell.com. Both of us have had plenty of experience with our work making its way across the internet, both with and without attribution to our hard work, and so we thought we would make a comic/chart about how to do it right.

Consider this reference material for the next time you find an artist’s work on a website without attribution to all the hard work someone put in. Next time you see someone posting something that isn’t theirs on Tumblr or Flickr or DeviantArt or wherever else, let them know what you really think. That they are killing the internet. And of course, every time you do that, the Internet (which, let’s face it, is a kitten) sheds a single tear. And then dies because IT HAS BEEN KILLED BY STUPID PEOPLE.

What’s that? You want this on a t-shirt? A poster? Not a problem!

Oh, you thought it would make a good shirt? Which part? The Googles? The sharing emblem? The sad kitten? Gotcha covered. Click on the images below to take you to the HilariAwesome.com store, where you can purchase any of the three shirts we’ve created from this comic. Proceeds go to the original artists, who worked hard to make you laugh and provide this public service announcement.

UPDATE: For those of you who were here earlier, there used to be a “sharing is awesome!” shirt based largely on the image in the above chart available right where this paragraph now lives. Due to using, oh, everyone’s logo in it, this infringed on some copyrights. If you think about it, that goes completely against the point of the chart in the first place, so we’ve taken it down for the time being. Caldwell and I fully plan to retool the design to not feature so many other people’s work in a way that goes against the spirit of the chart and then repost it as available for sale. In the meantime, hope you like the other shirts!


F%*k You T-shirt


To The Googles! T-shirt


See Something? Cite Something. Poster
(NOTE: If you would like a “radio edit” of the chart for whatever reason, just place the order and put that in the “special instructions” and we’ll make it happen!)

Of course, talk it up in the comments! We hid a ton of little jokes into this chart, see if you can find them all and list your favorite!
