Massive, massive thanks to Obfuscobble for busting this out, despite the so-called "Christmas" thing trying to get in the way.

Psh, the nerve of this Christmas. Who does Christmas think he is, anyway? I certainly didn't vote for him.

YAY! It's a Christmas MIRACLE! Also first. :D

That makes two miracles. It's so hard to get first comment on popular webcomic.

I was not expecting this to be updated today, what with that Christmas guy interrupting everyone's timetables. How rude. Im apologetic to say, however, I indeed voted for him. Sorry. :3

Okay, I know I did a lot of complaining about this story arc before, but this right here makes up for it. Jolly Christmas to all!

It might have somthing to do with Mr. Suprime Pres-minaster Christmas I thought that he passed some odd jollyness based laws.

Are you sure that's a good idea? I'm not sure Martello would be up for that (although she did seem impressed with the pink-o's gumption).
MeowMixIsorCats339 26th Dec 2011, 12:59 AM edit delete reply
I don't know if my heart just stopped because the comic actually updated on time (And on Christmas to boot!) or if I maybe had a little too much cheesy potatoes. o.O

Nah, it was probably the comic. I could eat them fritters all day long :P

Mario would not be able to do that. I thought i would point that out. He probably wouldn't even try.

Also, i just beat Skyward Sword. And it was amazing! Incredible! Insert multiple adjectives!! I think Demise makes Ganon look like...well...like Queen Gohma Gohma... Now, back to hero mode.

Yeah, Go's pretty unstable, it would seem.

Darn hearts, why don't you love me any more?! COME BACK! *sobs*

On a lighter note Groose is awesome. It's been a while since Link's has had a rival. And I love how they're not just competing for some weird forest girl with green hair but Zelda herself. :o

Plus the Groosenator totally powns. :D
the_unchosen_one 28th Dec 2011, 11:33 PM edit delete reply
Anyone else see the theory that Groose could be the ancestor of the Gerudo? I think it could work
Evdog 29th Dec 2011, 2:23 AM edit delete reply
Demise! That was what it was called!

I kept on calling him Discord, but I knew that wasn't right, because that just kept leading me to the thought of a Nintendo/Hasbro crossover.

I think the Mario one flows off the tongue best, but I'm not sure it could pull of an art style mimicry as well as the other 2 series could

AAh! please no spoilers! i have been investing my time in OoT for 3DS so i havent played much of Skyward sword yet! And heres an awesome easter egg I found (albeit with the help of the magical internet)when you become adult link, go to lon lon ranch and enter the bedroom.there is a picture of link from skyward sword propped against the dresser! aw man.... overused the exclamation points again...

Me finks there is also one in the Gerudo fortress by a table of something.

Also, we haven't even given away the ABSOLUTE BIGGEST ZELDA TWIST OF ALL TIME yet.

Be thankful.

So, I've been watching Dr Who lately. Just got to season 3, (of the reboot, mind you) and one of the characters for that episode is called "Morgenstern". Had subtitles on even, so I know for sure that's what it was.

Any possible connection there Morg?
Super Mariachi Bros. 29th Dec 2011, 2:12 AM edit delete reply
I do so love Dr. Who... yeah, I'll bet Morgen-sama is all upons that space-rhino mess. All. Up. Ons.
Evdog 29th Dec 2011, 2:25 AM edit delete reply
Well if the Doctor tells him to, *ahem*, "Go", then we'll know.

When I saw the space rhinos, all I could think of was "ROCKSTEADY!!!!!"
NotJoe 29th Dec 2011, 3:18 AM edit delete reply
According to the bottom of my screen, his name is Matt Morgan. Morgenstern wrote the Princess Bride, which is an awesome book. Methinks he is referencing the author.
the_unchosen_one 30th Dec 2011, 1:16 AM edit delete reply
And then the pig slaves are Beabop... Now all I need is a rat person, and turtle people. And maybe a guy who fights with sports equipment
Morgenstern 30th Dec 2011, 4:49 AM edit delete reply
It's a Germanic surname meaning "morning star."

It may be a reference to Lucifer

It might just be a Rammstein song I like

It is definitely a play off of my last name
Super Mariachi Bros. 30th Dec 2011, 2:41 PM edit delete reply
Nice... I used to be into Rammstein. German can make ANYTHING
Super Mariachi Bros. 30th Dec 2011, 2:44 PM edit delete reply
EDIT: German can make ANYTHING sound angry. Yes, even your mom.
I also like how you can see the kinship of English and German in their words. "Morgenstern," "morning star," etc. It's kind of nifty.

DemonBlood 31st Dec 2011, 6:13 AM edit delete reply
I'd like to change that to "Rammstein can make anything sound angry". Most germans I've ever met were pretty normal on the anger-scale, which means, considering that I was born and raised here, most germans do not sound angry.
PS: I already explained the "Morgenstern" "morning star" stuff in a reference to Morgs old avatar ages ago!
Super Mariachi Bros. 31st Dec 2011, 8:16 PM edit delete reply
@ DemonBlood: I agree about Germans; what I meant was that German the language is more aggressive-sounding than other languages, like, for example, Mandarin. I wasn't intending to slight Germans.
DemonBlood 2nd Jan 2012, 7:15 AM edit delete reply
Okay, question here, for everybody. What do you think the average german sounds like? Simply the first thing that comes to your mind. Give me names, YouTube-links, whatever exampel you could think of.
I just want to know why you think we sound angry!
the_unchosen_one 2nd Jan 2012, 12:21 PM edit delete reply
I think it may be incidental stereotyping, and I believe American media may have a large part to do with it. The most prominent example in my mind is a clip from Simpsons. A man was yelling in German, but the English subtitles showed he was actually being very polite and helpful. Then he flipped a table, while still yelling nice things.

Personally, I don't think Germans sound angry, maybe just gruff. From what I've heard of the language, there's a lot of what I refer to as "phlegm". Like in "acht"
Owl 2nd Jan 2012, 11:55 PM edit delete reply
In my opinion, a guy's cuteness gets a plus if he has a German accent. I think German accents are adorable >.<

And they should,
But it's Nintendo
So they won't.

True, Evdog, but the motion did get a second. Also, this is Mushroom Go, which is only PARTLY Nintendo
I call for a vote. All in favor?

I am slightly taking off for New Year's. I'm changing the update schedule again (and with any luck, changing the layout to look less like a Wiki), and have opted to change it this particular week so it's sort of almost like a holiday.

So new comic will be up Wednesday.

*sniff* Oh the nostalgia! You know what would be interesting? If this year a THIRD artist comes into the mix and we have a big fight over it. Just imagine: Wouldn't it be great if there was a flame war and everybody came? (A Grand Star to whoever gets my reference.)

Morgenstern 2nd Jan 2012, 2:33 AM edit delete reply
There were actually jokes about that in my house. Obfuscobble had some computers problems (possibly caused by me, wheee) and my roommate's immediate response was "Man... it's going to be a warzone when you hire that third artist."

Also, I think Rabble might be referencing Farside
Pinstripe 3rd Jan 2012, 2:59 AM edit delete reply
I'd just assumed he was referencing that terrible old hippie joke/saying "What if they gave a war and nobody came?"
