He took way too long to color. He’s the Stegosaurus of the see. Look how happy he is to see you
You gave it an even more monstrous body and a terrifying mouth but brought back the goofy-ass adorable eyes Anorith had, which is the perfect contrast.
This is the best Armaldo there ever was.
So I was totally behind this article I was reading by a dolphin-lover who nonetheless tried some dolphin meat when offered, but then he ended on this steaming shit of a statement:
I also tried crocodile that day. It was delicious, like sword fish, and came from an animal that is decidedly stupid, ugly, and disagreeable. So I’d like to conclude by saying, save a dolphin, eat a croc.
What a douchey fucking disrespectful thing for a “naturalist” to say. Jesus.
I want to stand in this guy’s yard and just continuously feed dolphins through a sausage grinder into a crocodile’s mouth can I do that
Raw bottle-nosed dolphin looks mouth watering by the way

I was on Newgrounds in 2006.
I’ve been inside a Hot Topic.
I know what shitty “random” humor actually is.
Man that killer7 game was so random.
That David Lynch guy was so random.
That Salvador Dali guy was so random.
It’s remarkable how thoroughly and for how long I kept forgetting that The Amazing World of Gumball even existed, even after seeing and liking the first couple episodes, and considering your complete and utter failure to consistently remind me of it (you, the internet) maybe I’m not even alone there. Its fandom presence is damn tiny, which is a shame, because we’ve been catching up with it over the past couple days and it’s just been rocketing up my favorite-ever cartoons list.
Whenever I did see it mentioned over the past couple years, it’s more often than not been a complete dismissal of the show as “too random.” That word keeps coming up in posts about it. “Random.” For God’s Sake, give that poor battered word some time to heal already.
There are lots of other cartoons and video games out there where characters just “happen” to look like various animals, objects or monsters for no real reason but aesthetic dressing, and I’ve always found that really boring and disappointing. Why show us weird-ass creatures and then have them function exactly like us? What’s fun about a world of talking animals if they’re just meaningless icons pasted over the mundane lives of mundane people?
Gumball doesn’t fall into that trap for a moment. Every one of its character designs have significance and are milked for both humor and entire story hooks. They don’t just “randomly” look like dinosaurs, sentient plants, talking food or puppets; they literally are those things in the context of the story, with unique attributes appropriate to their respective “species” and artistic mediums. It’s the whole point of the show. It’s why “Amazing World” is in the title. They actually deliver on that promise.
The kid who looks like a pixel spider is bound by the physics of early arcade games and has a giant multi-eyed UFO-spider mom. The school nurse complains about how her training doesn’t apply to the robot kid. A whole episode focuses on the ghost girl’s eternal hunger, and it’s disturbing and hilarious.
And even when it’s not taking advantage of its visuals, it’s just packed with so many fantastic jokes and even biting social commentary.
Gumball is ingeniously clever and you don’t know what “random” even means you big butt farter
YEAH REP IT

Man I miss Abyss. It’s too bad he died… ah well, may he rip in peace. Mystery snails are the cutest little buggers ever and 10/10 would recommend getting one. I know Omanyte is supposed to be an ammonite but shut up
pls take a moment
