Shaenon: J.N. McDonald sent us this piece of “pseudo fanart.”
As you can see, this fellow has named his gun the Light of Culture and Reason, Tip’s name for his…thingy. I’m sorry,this is all Jeff’s fault. Jeff is the one who makes the thingy jokes. Everyone go scold Jeff.
Channing: I think that if we were to look back on all the thingy jokes, we might find a more equitable distribution than Shaenon here implies. Really, for all the goinking the characters regularly engage in, there are relatively few references to thingies. Perhaps we should be including more thingy humor.
I honestly did not know that you were able to give your guns custom names in Team Fortress. This seems like it would be a treasure trove of fabulous juvenile humor.
