    The answer is in the definition. How exactly could I give an example that the jokes aren't original? They've been used before. Countless times. That's unoriginal.

    Where were they used before? Can you give proof that they were used countless times? How do you know VGcats didn't come up with the jokes themselves?

    Well, for one, someone choosing Charmander as their starter and realizing Brock is hard because of that choice isn't a joke. It's an observation.

    Other than that, you can find dozens of instances on message boards with people going "Is Prof. Oak senile?? He doesn't know his own grandson's name!!" All the guy does is draw down observations that have been done a million times before. And not even in a Seinfeldian way.

    People find them to be funny, if you look through this thread you'd see that.

    People are welcome to find the comic funny, but I'm one person that doesn't. This thread is for discussing the comic, no?

    Observational Comedy


    The way it's presented is what makes it funny.

    Yeah, I cited Seinfeld, so I'm aware of "observational comedy". However, an observation on its own is not necessarily funny. There wasn't any joke in that particular strip... It simply said "some people choose Charmander." How is that funny?

    It's poking fun at how people who choose fire starters have a difficult time with the first gym. Yes, he's stating that people choose fire starters, and the way he states it is in a mocking way.

    Rather than just saying it wasn't funny when other people obviously thought it was, why don't you rewrite the line then?

    It's not poking fun at it at all. Would it be funny if the chosen Pokemon was Squirtle and "poked fun at" how easy it would be to beat Brock? It's just an observation with no context to frame it as a joke.

    Uhh. No. Why would I edit what I said to agree with you? That's retarded. Just because some of you enjoy the strip doesn't mean I have to. There's a fair amount of people that don't. It's just opinions.

    Ummmm what?

    Obviously misinterpreted what I said and I don't know how I can make it any simpler so I won't bother :/

    I said if you don't think what Brock said was funny, then rewrite the line in a way that it is, so that we can see what you mean :/

    The line can't be rewritten. It's simply something that can't be made into a joke.

    All the jokes in super effective were made by some fan when they were first discovered. I myself have made lawnmower jokes about cutting grass. and everyone knows fighting Brock with charmander is tough. SE jsut presents the same joke in a way that still keeps it hilarious.

    The writer even acknowledges that many jokes were requested/have been made before.
