Copying is a form of flattery

First of all, VOTE VOTE VOTE. Sam and Fuzzy needs about double its current votes in order to crack the base of the top ten. I know there are more than enough of you readers to accomplish this, so pleeeeze give me a hand! I'll be your friend.

In this weeks issue of the Martlet, the University of Victoria's student newspaper, a comic was printed that parodies all of the other comics in the paper, including Sam and Fuzzy. I don't normally read the Martlet too closely, but the crudely drawn images of my own characters couldn't help but catch my attention.

At first I was really excited! Kurt Kobain said it best -- he knew that Nirvana had finally made it when Weird Al Yankovic wrote a parody of "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Unfortunately, this parody was a serious let-down. First of all, the thing was really a commentary on the entire comics section, and on the Martlet as a whole, so there wasn't exactly too much room to mock me specifically. Secondly, other than some really bad drawings of Sam and Fuzzy, there wasn't really any direct commentary on my comic -- at least not that I could tell. Admittedly, this comic was a tad hard to decipher, as it looked like it was drawn by a team of rabid monkeys. Anyhow, this man's scathing parody essentially consisted of: "Ha ha, you're not funny!"

I was crushed. I mean, where's the EFFORT? Sam and Fuzzy is rife with attributes suitable for parody! Please, people, if you are going to parody me, put some effort into it. Don't just cop out... tell me how you REALLY FEEL.

I'm so disillusioned.

Hanging Chads

Top Web Comics is still acting a little flaky, but it is more or less up and running. I think. Anyhow, Sam and Fuzzy is floating around 24th place at the moment, which is a pretty good achievement for four days of voting. Please keep it up! And if you haven't been voting for whatever reason, I would really appreciate it if you did. It really takes almost no effort at all. Plus, you know, you can sleep at night and everything.

School work is really starting to pick up now, but I'm nevertheless managing to continue cranking out lots of new material. I'm working on this TOP SECRET PROJECT that, upon completion, will be by far the most awesome thing on the entire internet. I'd tell you all about it, but... you know... its a secret.

If it ain't broke


Oooooookay. I think Top Web Comics is back up and working after all, although the service may still be a little bumpy. Thanks to everyone who emailed me to let me know. At the time of this update, Sam and Fuzzy is ranked 26th.... please keep it up guys!

For the sake of posterity, today's original newspost (and subsequent edits and updates) is preserved below:

Well, thank you so much for all your support, guys! Turnout for the first few days of the voting campaign has been excellent. Unfortunately, Top Web Comics decided to celebrate my entering into the running by breaking down horribly.


Well it looks like TWC is up and running again... so please, vote, vote, vote! Help increase readership! Support the community! Sleep well at night!

*edit, again*

I've removed the vote banner, because it looks like TWC has bought the dust permanently. Years from now, we will fondly look back on this brief time from January 31st to February 2nd of 2003: the lost, but never forgotten "TWC" era of Sam and Fuzzy. Alas, those sweet days are gone now. You can't get the hours back.

See you all on Wednesday!
