Comic: I dun get iit... by Photonicsoup Comic: I dun get iit... by Photonicsoup
Only 1 background edition!!

Politics seems to be everywhere at the moment.. So I took the time to address what I consider to be the most annoying thing about politics (My priorities are somewhat warped).. Political cartoons...

I get some of them, most of them make my head hurt... Hopefully I'm not the only one with this problem... Oh well..

Also, I have no idea why most of the mane 6 have been turned into bitches.. I blame you...

Dash always gets the short end of the stick in my comics, I'm not sure why...

I reckon I'm gonna do the critique thing again... Cos why not?

It seems I forgot to write an obituary for Slate Slabrock... Just imagine it says "RAILING KILL!!!" Or something..

Well, my word, that made my evening! Although I wish that I had seen what the mane six (excluding Rainbow Dash) were laughing at also, but I think it was a wise decision to leave the reader hanging (especially since not everyone understands political humor. I tend to read TIME magazing, so I can can understand most cartoons, but I know plenty of people who are easily perplexed by politics. Don't fret, you're certainly not the only one. Okay, here comes the critique: when you discussed what Rainbow Dash did as she was aquiring the papers, I got lost. Was the random guy you who was stalking Rainbow? I feel that the information is irrelevant towards the comic and distracts the reader before the zingers even come in. I also love the basic history involved; that Discord snake is such a riot!I also find the obituaries so funny, and how you took the time to write in funny captions with the name. I can tell you worked really hard on this, and I think it's paid off. With a few modifications, I think this would be a perfect nd hilarious MLP comic. Keep up the great work!

I remember learning about that "join or die" political cartoon back in history class. It had a snake instead of Discord, though.

I'm with Rainbow Dash...since I also had no idea what I was looking at, but I still laffed! The Chop Soi Discord makes no sense to me after all, but it looked so funny! And I never heared the word obituary before! Anyways those names were so funny, most of these guys might been dieing of laughter over their own names XP
Too bad this Twilight seems to have no humour...

The discord thing was something representing the first 13 colonies, to join together, or die as a colony. It's supposed to be a snake though, but Equestria, so yaaaaa. :D
