The local free weekly runs a comic panel called The HR Department by Ed Harrington. (I don’t know if it’s syndicated or not — the problem with calling your comic something so generic means it’s darn near impossible to google for information.) Here’s the latest example:
While it tickled me, before I stopped to think about it, I also found myself wondering if this comic made any sense at all to someone who doesn’t recognize the Mythbusters cast members. Aquaman’s more well-known, I guess, but then there’s the combination of the two. Is it funny? Or just self-satisfying when the reader recognizes all the references?
(And in the “killing the joke” category — Aquaman spends all his time in water. Where his hand is shouldn’t matter.)
