Comments of the Week:

name, on the return of Laowai Comics:

now i get it. these awfully drawn and unfunny “laowai comics” are part of a devious plot by Mr Tao to collect negative comments for a corpus-based analysis of hate discourse in internet forums. we are his guinea pigs, his German Shepperd, and laowai comics is the bait. Mr Tao, you are indeed a true creative and i salute you.
