Stephanie Meyer just pwnt the crap out of 4chan.

This comic reminds me of how Scientology got back at South Park for the episode "Trapped in the Closet." They didn't sue them, or do any of their usual things; instead, they got Chef to quit. That's where they crossed the line into evil genius territory, IMO. Yes, they're a horrible organization, etc., but you've got to grudgingly respect that sort of wielding of power.

Funniest comic I've seen in a while! Nice use of 4chan AND Twilight in the same comic! Lawl

Clearly pwned. Chantards. Although it's really difficult to pick sides on this one lawl.

Well didn't 4chan screw itself over before as well. Like a file labeled porn was really an auto install dos attack on the site?

Those could be freckles, but I'm betting they're pimples.
Try the Printifier for xkcd. You can now scale the comic between 50 and 150%.

I find these very useful: Common Errors in English Usage (web site) and Eats, Shoots & Leaves (book). You may, too.

Isn't this what happened after Anonymous gained traction in the media? Hence leading to the "Cancer that is killing /b/"?

I wonder if a /b/ can survive another round of chemo, or will simply succumb to the fail of the newfags... (after all, it isn't as strong as it was before).

The alt text pushes this comic to new heights of hilarity. Arguably the best comic on the site.

Anyone else notice the first panel has an error on it? It looks like he crossed something out.

Brilliant comic, definitely a win. While I am a fan of the series, sending those who are ridiculous about it into 4chan as revenge sounds like a brilliant plan!

Yeah, reminds me of the first time a friend of mine went on /b/.

Him: So this is 4chan.
Me (in my head): 10... 9... 8..... 3... 2... 1...
Him: WHAT THE HELL!!!
Me: Yeah 4chan will do that to you.

Unstoppable force meets immovable object.

I'm trying to actually imagine what kind of a battle that would be... /b/tards vs female adolescent pop culture slaves.

PS: Just checked /b/... no thread about this... yet.

Edit: ah, nvm pyro... thanks.

I don't think it's actually possible to destroy 4chan anymore, it's just grown too... vast and infinite. My only fear is that it physically incarnates itself into Slaanesh when it becomes too much for the internet to handle.

Despite staying as far away from both /b/ and Twilight as I possibly can, I laughed like a maniac reading this strip.
