Break Shot

March 5, 2012

This week’s comic was inspired by the pool tournament we’re having at work. I used to play a fair bit of pool back in Dubai about six or seven years ago, so much that I even bought my own cue stick. It looks awesome.

However, six or seven years later after not playing much pool at all, I’ve lost all my skill and replaced it with bad. It’s pretty embarassing playing terribly with a fancy cue stick. Anyway, I lost the first round by sinking the black on my second go. Luckily I have one more match to prove myself, so wish me luck.

It has passed 5am here now, so I need to grab some sleep and energize myself for that pool match tomorrow, goodnight.

OH and before I forget, check out the fancy new side bar link buttons on the right! –> See anything that’s relevant to you?

    The reason noone likes him is because he is naked.

    I just wanted to say that I love how you kept the positions of everyone in the last panel compared to where they head from the break. Love your comics.

    The thing that sucks about being on the same side of the world as you, I don’t get to start my Mondays off with a nice updated comic. :) Well at least my Tuesday mornings rock. ;)

    And when are you going to start pumping out the t-shirts? Isn’t that standard webcomic merchandise? I would totally buy some if you chose to put some of the panels or your little dudes on ‘em, they crack my shit up!!

    1. Gregor says:

      T-shirts are coming :) thanks for the comment and interest! I’ll be making official announcements as soon as I have concrete news about it.

      1. Patches says:

        Yayness!! That’s awesome, and I wish you luck!! I’m a t-shirt whore so you know I’ll buy one. :)

    Oooooh shiny G+ and Reddit buttons! ◕‿◕

    As for pool I sort of have the opposite scenario: I had never played pool for several years already, and during a New Year’s Eve dinner night I tried a match with one of my cousins. Well I lost, but at least I didn’t sink the black immediately ;P

    I love the “putting faces on things that don’t usually have faces” joke, it reminds me of “New Friend” which brought me to this site in the first place. I may also have to steal… err… borrow this as an excuse for why I suck so bad at pool.

    And good luck with the tournament (if it’s still going… somehow…).

  17. Soulgamer says:

    Great, now I can’t help but think this everytime I play in my APA matches.

  18. Julien says:

    Your ideas are awesome! A great inspiration for me! Thanks! Cheers from France.

    Aww poor whitey. Neither a solid nor a stripe, his theme song is probably ‘All By Myself’

  20. Lewis says:

    wait delete the ‘HA’ one…

  21. Pure awesome. Made think of a “forever alone” on his face.

    1. heckuva says:

      Why we need to put meme faces on everything we see?

      1. wonderfulfeeling says:

        lol yeah he looks pretty lonely already

        Because they’re faggots, and that’s how they shall remain.
