Pierre Vs. The Manosphere: A Man Boobz-inspired web comic

pierre

Those of you who aren’t regular readers of the comments here may not be aware of A Voice for Pierre, the hilarious new webcomic by regular Man Boobz commenter Katz, inspired by Man Boobz trolls and dopey Boobz more generally. Here’s the first strip, about a poor paranoid MRA afraid to take his sons to Canada lest they be attacked and possibly killed by wild feminists. Naturally, it’s based on a TRUE STORY.

You can find more Pierre at the A Voice for Pierre website.

Wooo, comics.

And perdant can’t be NWO. I could actually read through the sentences without feeling like I was at TimeCube.

I got kicked off the NYE Timecube Challenge* for being too good at it, which I attribute to two things:

1. Timecube is actually quite poetic, it’s easy to settle into an easy meter and there is use of repitition. Once you settle into the sound of the words rather than the content, it’s very easy to read.

2. NWOslave. He is excellent practice for this kind of thing.

*Read Timecube. Don’t laugh. When you laugh, pass on to other participants.

RE: CWA

My equivalent of TimeCube was when I was trying to read medieval proto-Kabbalah treatises. It was this bizarre experience of seeing English words strung together into English phrases in English sentences… and having NO IDEA what the hell they were going on about. That was always how I felt reading NWO. He was like Rorschach, given Internet and without sentence fragments.

I made it through more than a page of The Eye of Argon at a public reading.

Even with practice that’s hard, because by the time it gets to you the previous laughing sessions have loosened your bowels, and tightened your guts, and all it takes is one person to sn*gger and all is lost.

OMG THE EYE OF ARGON! GRIGNR! *dazed happy eyes* My equivalent was really bad g0y porn at my bachelor party.

I could kinda see NWO making sense, if you accepted the following:

1. The universe, or at least Western society, is centred around NWOslave and/or the NWOcock.
2. The universe, or at least Western society, thrives entirely on angering NWOslave or frustrating the NWOcock.
3. NWOslave is the only one actually aware of this.

If I knew how to put together an RPG system, I would make one out of some of the weirder stuff MRAs had proposed, and then add wizards.

I tried editing the Eye of Argon into something only mildly bad.

I think it was about 1983 I first encountered…

“From where do you come barbarian, and by what are you
called?” Gasped the complying wench, as Grignr smothered her lips
with the blazing touch of his flaming mouth.
The engrossed titan ignored the queries of the inquisitive
female, pulling her towards him and crushing her sagging nipples
to his yearning chest. Without struggle she gave in, winding her
soft arms around the harshly bronzedhide of Grignr corded
shoulder blades, as his calloused hands caressed her firm
protruding busts.
“You make love well wench,” Admitted Grignr as he reached
for the vessel of potent wine his charge had been quaffing.
A flying foot caught the mug Grignr had taken hold of,
sending its blood red contents sloshing over a flickering
crescent; leashing tongues of bright orange flame to the foot
trodden floor.
“Remove yourself Sirrah, the wench belongs to me;” Blabbered
a drunken soldier, too far consumed by the influences of his
virile brew to take note of the superior size of his adversary.

Etc.

Really, not having an actual copy, in all it’s mimeographic horror, takes away so much of the… pleasure.

I’m ok, it just reminds me of me at 14, listening to the teachers who said “use lots of adjectives” and “use the thesaurus to expand your vocabulary” which turns out to be a hilariously bad thing to say to an Aspie kid with an already very large vocabulary…

5 adjectives per noun, telling everywhere, and I capped it off with ‘hexahedral’… somehow my creative writing coursework (for English) got an A*.

*epic shame*

I’m sitting here after work reformatting my article manuscript from a “normal” citation format to one where I have to use ascending numerals to reference each article in the body, then number them in order in the reference section. Plus, convert all journal names into Index Medicus format, which I had not heard of until today.

I’m bored. But my partner made dinner, so I’m still managing to do misandry!

Can I never see the word(s) NWOcock again? That’s one mental imagine I never needed!

It’s almost funny, isn’t it? When I was younger I wrote way “older” than I was. Long sentences, unusual vocab, all that kind of crap.

Then I took some creative writing classes where I was told things like:

Write like you talk**
Use adjectives and adverbs sparingly
Write so people understand**
Avoid “as” clauses (harder than you think) and overly long sentences

Now I write much more clearly and simply. And I’ve come to associate the loads and loads of descriptive crap and $50 words with immature writing. (Of course there are other ways to write badly and this is just one of them.)

**I am well aware that some people talk like 80-year-old English professors, including (but not limited to) 80-year-old English professors. Unless you are writing for an audience of 80-year-old English professors, however, you probably should not write like that.

Argenti Aertheri

“80-year-old English professors”

Or 80 year old Latin profs, or 80 year old Roman history profs (at least, I think that’s what that course was, he went on so many tangents I’m really not sure!)

Same guy, and he was awesome. Not even I can relate a tangent back to the main point like he could though (and anyone who’s been around here long knows that I do love my tangents 🙂 )

No, no, no! The rest of the world or at least the wimminz of the world age 14 and up all know this. They are doing it deliberately because they are slutty slut sluts of slutography.

I don’t entirely write as I talk; there’s a big difference between the pieces I write for vocal performance and the pieces I do for reading. (And those differ INTENSELY from my comics work; it’s an old joke that you can tell when a writer does comics because they put captions and text EVERYWHERE.) But I do try to write simply and understandably.

That’s just because I have a special dislike of jargon. For the past five plus years I’ve been trying to make the world of mental difference and mental illness something ordinary people can understand. To use language in a way that inhibits clarity (unless you’re doing writing sleight-of-hand to distract the reader’s focus) is completely against what I stand for.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

I write pretty much as I talk. With lots of parentheses. 😉

“If I knew how to put together an RPG system, I would make one out of some of the weirder stuff MRAs had proposed, and then add wizards.”

That is a FANTASTIC idea.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Imagine Ridcully trying to deal with NWO. It’d be like the Bursar on nasty pills.

Hey, maybe that’s what NWO needs – dried frog pills!

Actually I’d like to see NWO handed over to Granny and Nanny.

heheheh

Radiant Sophia — I just forwarded your comment to my not-an-ex, ze’s probably too busy to do it, but already wrote one system and might be interested. Shameless plug, ze’s the brain behind Averice Industries.

If you just want a D&D based system, I just might be able to wrangle one in other words (I’d totally play that 🙂 )

I write much as I speak. One of the joys of russian is that it has a substitutional pronoun which means, basically, “begin paranthetical phrase here”. Once I figured out what it meant, I was in hog-heaven.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Not to mention that it uses the same alphabet as Spanish!

If anyone dug up the stuff that I wrote as a tweener it would be purple and adjective-heavy enough to make even the most florid MRA proud.

(This is why you don’t piss of your old friends, who might still have stuff that you wrote as a kid in their possession.)

Poutine seems like the leading contestant right now…

If Poutine wins, does that mean there’ll be a picture of Pierre and Poutine sharing a bowl of poutine?

I don’t usually like that sort of cheese so probably not.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

I like my chips unadorned, so I wouldn’t be having it either. Plus cheese and gravy sounds a bit … um, not for me.

CassandraSays

I am British so gravy on chips sounds fine to me, but I’m awfully picky about cheese.

At my high school they didn’t quite grasp the concept of vegetarianism, so students who told the kitchen staff that they were veggie would get a pile of chips covered in either shredded cheddar or gravy. Tasty, but not exactly nutritious.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Or particularly vegetarian, with the gravy!

At least they didn’t offer it with Spam.

Poutine seems like an idea particularly stereotypical beanie-wearing stoners might come up with. Not quite sure why it’s given the level of respect it is, but I never cared for cheese so I’m biased.

Now, brown vinegar on chips, that’s good! Or white, which is unconventional, but available at Outback Steakhouse as some sort of uniquely Australian option. Now, given that vinegar on chips has been foreign to most people I’ve had it with and most chip-shop owners seem surprised some under 65 and without (too much of a) pommy accent asks for it, I don’t know quite where they got that idea. But it is pleasant.

It’s really unusual having an Australian-themed restaraunt in Australia, too. Would not go back.

Surprised by vinegar on chips? What an odd country that must be.

(Actually almost everything goes with chips. I just don’t like curd cheeses, the texture bothers me.)

lowquacks

It’s usually right there on counters at chip shops and that, but often in dodgy-looking unmarked plastic bottles. Tomato sauce or unadorned is the standard way of doing things here. Chicken salt is popular too, and judging by the reactions of various international visitors to be offered either chicken or plain salt with their chips it certainly seems mostly an Aussie phenomenon.

Argenti Aertheri

Chips that my silly American ass would call fries? Those go on things, like salads (ah Pittsburgh, the weird things you eat)

What’s chicken salt?

(Guess that answers your question about whether it’s an Aussie thing, huh?)

I had a salad in Pittsburg once. It was about half a pound of sliced ham, about half a pound of cheese, and a sad little pile of iceburg lettuce on the bottom.

Argenti Aertheri

“Tomato sauce” …ketchup? Assuming we’re thinking of the same sort of chips, that’s standard here too, as is salt (to the point that everyone thinks I’m weird because I’m not a fan of salt)

lowquacks
7 years ago

Mostly MSG and salt, probably. It’s yellow and doesn’t taste anything like chicken. Quite tasty though – we’ve had international visitors ask us to send some over, which is more than can be said for Vegemite.

The standard tricking-foreigners-into-believing-Vegemite-is-edible schtick is just cruel if you ask me.

lowquacks

Yes, tomato sauce = tomato ketchup, but we tend not to use that word. It’s creeping in but a lot of Australians think of it as a nasty American term.

Argenti Aertheri

Cassandra, you’ve just summed up when I ordered a salad exactly once! Even the side salads come with fries though, and those generally don’t have expensive things like meat, so I kind of got used to my salads having fries.

And now I miss the Turkish place around the corner from my old apt — excellent kebab with salads and fries, all kind of thrown together into a pile of skewers, lettuce, tomato and fries.

When someone says tomato sauce I think marinara, so that could turn a bit Monty Python-ish.

Argenti Aertheri

Lowquaks — ok but tomato sauce is a (different) thing, it goes on pasta, and would be weird on fries. Y’all call them both the same thing? And figure it from context?

I was so sad about my salad because it was a work trip and they’d been feeding us very meaty things all day so I was craving some vegetables. Half a cup of soggy iceberg just didn’t do it for me.

Argenti Aertheri

Aw, that sucks, salads really do require things like tomatoes, pepper, etc (YMMV of course, but non-lettuce veggies are needed!)
