Trypto: John 19:2
Lani Kai: which is?
Trypto: And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it upon his head.
Lani Kai: and why are you quoting Bible verses now?
Trypto: because it looks like a crown of thorns...

CCCXXVI: No One Will Know

View Original

Trypto: I think it would be really nice if you turned down the saturation and lightness on the yellow
Lani Kai: like so?
Lani Kai: or is that going a bit too far
Trypto: that's good--the streets are actually the color of streets now
Lani Kai: right
Lani Kai: except the crosswalk lines look a bit weird
Trypto: no one will realize that unless they've seen the original
Trypto: or that the foliage got grayed out a bit
Trypto: of course, I'm still not falling for your "round earth" conspiracy theories

CCCXXV: The Cropper

© Trypto
Trypto: I just got a really good idea for a serial killer
Trypto: he'd be a photographer, and go around chopping people in half, "for better composition" because they looked too symmetrical
Lani Kai: how do they find out that he's a photographer?
Lani Kai: does he leave a well-composed Polaroid photo with the body?
Trypto: yeah, and his nickname in the newspapers would be "The Cropper"

Lani Kai: why are you in denial today?

CCCXXIII: Ping-Pong Master

© Lani Kai
Lani Kai: I wonder what the lump is for
Trypto: to store his spare ping pong ball
Lani Kai: oh
Lani Kai: where does he carry the one that he always uses?
Trypto: that's like saying
Trypto: "where do you carry the tires that you always use?"
Lani Kai: no it isn't
Lani Kai: it's plainly obvious where I would keep the tires I always use
Lani Kai: it's like saying "if that's where he keeps his spare camera, where does he keep the one he always uses?"
Trypto: ok fine
Trypto: well, it looks like he's swallowing a ping pong ball too
Trypto: that's the one he always uses
