KinokoFry #092 – Language Just Exists

I’ve finished the postcards for all the very generous people who donated during the Spring Donation Drive, and will be sending them out tomorrow. I’m very proud of this particular collection!

Would you like to see one?

I’m working hard to finish a lot of work before I head to Sydney tomorrow to see The B-52s and The Proclaimers!

Yeah, English is funny–wait! WTF is a “gift hamper?”


I may be mistaken but I believe that a “gift hamper” is where Santa puts all his failures, like old furbies and the like. Either that or its the thing anti-matter made by a hadron collider is stored in.


This reminds me of a ‘thought experiment’ I came up with a while ago. Specifically a missing word in the English language. We have ‘Bad’ and ‘Evil’, two similar, yet not identical things share the same antonym, ‘Good’. For example, you could do ‘Good’ (not bad) things for ‘Evil’ (selfish) reasons, and conversely you can do ‘Bad’ things for ‘Good’ (not evil/selfish) reasons. I could explain in more detail but don’t want to take up too much space.

On an unrelated note, you know how you always find dead worms on the sidewalk after a rain? Overlay that knowledge on the ending of the movie ‘Dune’.


I just wanted to say this is ingenious. As if the whole language, moreover the English language, existed before society. I stumbled it, I hope more people read your comic.
