Explaining the joke. by Vaughn Smith

Not much to explain here, except that when I saw this picture of the GameCube, for the first time ever, the two innocent little faces appeared to me. The mouths being the memory card slots and the eyes are the controller slots. I couldn't believe I had never noticed this before. No wonder it had the reputation for being a kiddie system - how could it not when it had these two cute little faces on it?

Nigel and Cecil are two of the prissiest names I could think of. If you could say the dialogue with a soft English accent, I think that suits the strip just perfectly.

Things to note:

  • The little dots about the controller slots are the eyebrows.
  • I just noticed that I completely screwed this up. I have Cecil calling "Nigel", Cecil in the first dialogue bubble. For those keeping track, Cecil is on the left and Nigel is on the right. What an amateur! Maybe I'll fix it in the George Lucas-inspired Console Wars Special Editon.
