Comic-Cough is a fast spreading air born virus, that is transmitted throughout thousands of San Diego Comic-Con attendees every year. The origins of this virus are still unknown to this day. However it is speculated that it only effects the young, and 20-30+ y/o basement dwelling virgins, as their immune systems are not capable of fighting off even the simplest common house mold.
Comic-Cough is a virus similar to the para-influenza virus, and the common chest cold. It was originally diagnosed as a form of tracheobronchitis, but was later filed as an "unclassified" human illness. This unpublicized status has allowed the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) to deny it's existence to this day.
Clinical signs of infections occur 2-14 days after exposure, and if uncomplicated with other agents, or bacteria, symptoms will last around 10 days.

Uninfected 2: About what?

Uninfected 2: Merciful Zeus!
|2.||Bob and George|
The daily comic strip. Created by David Anez, it was meant to be a hand-drawn comic, but instead started as a sprite comic revolving around the Megaman universe. A few failed attempts at a hand-drawn comic appeared here and there, but it never became permanent. The first comic was on April 1 2000, and lasted more than six years. It was the first decent sprite web-comic, and inspired sprite comics like 8-bit theatre. The title characters, Bob and George, didn't appear for a while, and that became a problem. So David introduce sprite forms of Bob(Napalm in the hand-drawn parts) and George(or Blitz). Bob was a gray Protoman recolor with red hair beneath his helmet, and George was a blue and gray recolor of megaman with blonde hair. Bob had the power to manipulate fire (hence Napalm) and George had the power to manipulate lightning (hence Blitz). The author also had sprite form of himself, a purple megaman recolor, to mostly to criticize his own work and to break the fourth wall to be funny. Most of the storylines involved time travel, parallel universes, and Megaman game parodies, with an annual villian to attempt to kill everybody. In general, Megaman and Bass are stupid, Protoman is mysterious and aloof, Roll is bitchy, Dr. Light is a drunk, fat old man, Dr. Wily is incompetent, X is a pacifist (pansy), Zero looks like a girl, and everyone enjoys telling him that, and Ran is a Soviet-bot. The comic is now situated at www.bobandgeorge.com, along with some other sprite comics.more...
Japanese Comic or manga that portrays the twisted and suspenseful story of Yamagi Light, a genius who gets his ambitious hands on the Notebook of Death. Upon writing a persons name and the cause of death within its pages the person will die 40 seconds later. However, Light has to overcome the police and super sleuth "L" who pursue him before he can "cleanse the earth" of filth.
Light wrote >_<; in the Death Note. Looks like I'm dea-*ack* *cough* X_x
A beautiful term for an extremely Foul smelling fart. The term is made funnier if the fart sounds like quacking duck when expelled from the rectum. Though an SBD can still qualify as a Butt Duck if it is especially foul (emphasis on the word foul/fowl for comic effect). See frequently activated rectal tremble and shit flavored air.
"Fuck Mary, you shit a butt duck! I think you have cancer, something has crawled up your arse and died!"
|5.||Gunny Granny Flu|
A disease very similar to Middletons' Disease only much worse. This disease is suffered by Beatrice Middleton when she wants to play with the kids, but they aren't there. It is also commonly seen in the Middletons' pet dog, Bumper, when he wants to play. When she gets Gunny Granny Flu Beatrice is often stuck in the house and is very lonely. It is cured by intense workouts and other treatments such as massages. So if you love the comic strip 'The Middletons', be careful - you might get Middletons' Disease and the Gunny Granny Flu.
Bumper: Uh oh, its school time again. I bet Miss Beatrice will have the Gunny Granny Flu.
Rusty: She sure will! Its tough when the kids are in school. Crazy fall time.
Beatrice: Yes, it is crazy around this time. But think of it this way: you get to spend all your time with me. Isn't that sweet? (She reaches for a Martian Mud and rubs it into Bumper's fur)
Bumper: Thank you! That's better. Now I've got the Gunny Granny Flu. What else can we do?
Rusty: Well, I know she likes to stretch. How about we stretch each other? (Bumper and Rusty start stretching on each other)
Beatrice: Yes, that's it. You two know how to make a Gunny Granny feel better. Now how about a game of fetch? (she throws a tennis ball to Rusty)
Bumper and Rusty: Poor Beatrice! She doesn't know what to do. I guess the Gunny Granny Flu will never end. Its just so sad.
|6.||Magic: The Gathering|
A card game where the winner is decided by who can cough up the most money to go to a comic book store and buy the grossly overpowered older cards. The #3 cause of prolonged virginity in 20+ year-old males, only behind Everquest and Dungeons and Dragons.
I play Magic. I also cry when I masterbate.
Overview: Pokémon (or Pocket Monsters) helped anime, games, Trading Cards, and Nintendo. Even if a lot of people won't admit it.more...
History (before the release): Satoshi Tajiri was the creator of the original Pokemon games. Living just outside of Japan (as a child) in the mid-60's he loved to collect insects; in the rice fields he became very skilled at collecting the little bugs ('Mr. Bug' as called by childhood friends). In the late 70's the rice fields became shopping centres and arcades (etc). In those days Tajiri was an otaku, he was a game addict. He played in Arcades which used to be the old Rice Fields; he felt it was a sin.
"Tajiri preserved the world of his childhood in Pokemon" (Time Mag. Nov22, 1999). Then in 1982, Satoshi, Ken Sugimori and a few other mates created the magazine GameFreak (to offer tips and game cheats).
After two years of working on it, Satoshi came across Nintendo's Link Cable. "I imagined an insect moving back and forth across the cable. That's what inspired me." Tajiri. It was just an idea, but as soon as he could he signed up with Nintendo.
GameFreak almost died because of such money problems, Satoshi didn't even pay himself. After six years, Pokemon hit Japa...
