A stop sign saying "go" is ironic.

Thanks for pointing that out, I almost missed it.  ::)

Well i just thought i'd say i found it amusing, and also really liked the drawing style.

The part which triggers the amusement for me is seeing the look on his face, and therefore the way he thinks he's being clever by driving ahead, when in the end he gets his comeuppance. Also, the last frame with the stop sign is quite creepy, i'm not sure i can really describe how i feel about it, but there's a sense of suspicion about the sign which comes with the final frame.

Anyways, i liked it.

Could always color the sign green. That could help.

And if you think that's a revelation, you should hear me explain soap. :)

That image in itself is tons funnier.

I must admit, that's great. The stop sign's pose is a bit awkward though.. in the situation. More like 'oops'.  :-*

I find TakaM's the most funny. Irony is humor. Mccow's is not funny at all, IMO. The only thing about TakaM's comic that I think is not done as well as it could be is that:
A)The dude isn't surprised by the talking sign and
B)The sign only speaks once.
That fails at being funny, it does not even register as proper nonsense in my brain (me loves nonsense).
Nonsense can sometimes be funny, but I think that the humor comes mostly from unexpected spontaneity(sp?). And irony. Mixing those things makes for hilarity. Spontenirony.


[a few minutes later:]
Oh! I get Mccow's now! It's still not that funny.

And the fact he isn't surprised by the talking sign or the fact it only speaks once adds to my delight. He could perhaps be imagining it in his tired daze.

Media studies is getting to me.

I wasnt expecting for it to spark such a conversation :P

and on the sign talking only once, I was considering making it "lol" in the last frame or something like:

but when I drew the last frame I came to think it didnt need to be said

Mine was actually supposed to be jokingly unfunny, FYI. ;D Perhaps even a little tragic.

Ah, but what a great topic. The unfunniness of talking signs. :y:
