Snitch

September 30, 2019 by Tim

Okay, so look… if you don’t get today’s strip… count yourself fortunate that the internet has not, in the past couple of weeks, chosen to repeatedly foist upon you knowledge of this person’s questionable existence. Knowledge that you could have happily lived your entire life without, had not various social media and “recommended” news articles, and memes insisted it reside somewhere in your brain.

You are the lucky one. You have been spared seeing his face, his hair, and far too much time  (read: anything more than 1 nanosecond) questioning how to pronounce this moron’s name. Rejoice in your fortune.

I will not link to a news article, tell you his name, or explain further. Any Googling you do is done under your own volition and I will accept no responsibility for it.

Alright, I will head your warning.
I’ll just see it as a quest to find some thingies and an npc that can give directions for them.
I live my life in bliss 🙂

Once again, it sounds like ignorance is bliss.

Also sounds like the corollary, “Knowledge is an ulcer”.

Same here, it actually feels rather vindicating to not care

Gabriel Mayer

You can’t just do this and then not say who this guy is! That’s like forcing us to look for him

From what I gather by context of memes and having done no research he snitched on someone?

Eisbaer Borealis
Guest
Eisbaer Borealis

From what I’ve gathered from the memes, he snitched on EVERYONE.

Twilight Faze

Guy’s a rapper, Tech N9ne, and there’s a meme going around about him “snitching” on everybody to save his skin. At first it was kinda funny, but now…yeah, Tim’s post about it pretty accurate.

Larry
Guest
Larry

THAT is TechN9ne?!?!? Wow! They really cleaned him up for Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival (Which was in incredible role, BTW)

Ron
Guest

Okay, let’s no go spreading misinformation. That’s Tekashi 6ix9ine, Tech N9ne is a completely different… musician?

Steeeve
Guest

Tech N9ne >_< people should google things before making statements

Niko
Guest

Tekashi 6ix9ine is the snitch, not Tech N9ne

Going to go out on a limb here and say… The fourth iteration of The Joker in recent film history.

Mr. Comment
Guest
Mr. Comment

Actually he would be the 8th in recent film history. (I count from Tim Burton onwards onwards only cinematic releases)

Twilight Faze
Guest

You would be wrong.

Mr. Comment
Guest
Mr. Comment

1) Jack Nicholson
2) Mark Hamill’s DCAU Joker in Mask of the Phantasm
3) Heath Ledger
4) Jared Leto
5) Mark Hamill again in the Killing Joke. I know he did the Joker before, but this one is definitely a different iteration.
6) Zach Galifianakis
7) Joaquin Phoenix

Whoever that is in the comic would be Nr.8 unless I forgot someone.

OG Nerd

Aww…
Everyone ignores poor Caesar Romero. (Adam West’s Joker)

He’d be 9 by that count.

Velvet74

To be fair it was specifically mentioned as “film history” which to me is movies and not tv.

I genuinely don’t know who that guy is… and now I’m afraid to ask.

Just google “Stupid criminal names”, he’ll come up eventually

If you’re old enough, think about the time Prince changed his name to “squiggle” and started telling us all how to live…. then multiply by at least 10,
Ignorance is bliss in this instance and to be maintained at all costs.

Ducky
Guest
Ducky

Prince changed his name to that squiggle to fuck over the studio that was claiming his work was theirs because they owned his name. It was an extremely shrewd move to out-loophole the execs who were stealing his music.

Brian
Guest
Brian

He did a terrible PR job on that move, to be fair. The real story never really made it out until much later, and he just looked crazy. It was a pretty brilliant move on his part. Screw over the studio, and generate huge buzz in the media. He just never took the third step of letting anyone know the story.

Keep in mind, saying “i did this to wiggle out of a contract” could in and of itself be considered a form of contract violation depending on the language of the contract.

Haha, great reference there. Props Tim.

I wonder how much time off his sentence he gets for helping Link here.

Ha. Excellent strip today. I wish I knew nothing about this too.

But if you do want to know, the clue is in the face…

no thanks nintendo

The next one is a few meters away, exact same puzzle as this one was, because Breath of the Wild is an Assassin’s Creed game and they just copy/paste the same thing across the map 50-200 times in lieu of actual content.

HonoredMule
Guest
HonoredMule

You mean I can have an Assassin’s Creed game without Assassin’s Creed controls? Sign me up!

Eldest Gruff
Guest

I can’t figure out if you haven’t played Assassin’s Creed, haven’t played Breath of the Wild, or both.

I’m leaning toward ‘both.’

Tim, what are you doing to us! You can’t just leave us hanging with the main thread like that! You tease you!

Hm, I think I have only seen that 69 guy once in a “Metal Musicians React to POP Music” Video on Youtube.

EMMachine
Guest

To give the link to the video I meant: https://youtu.be/84EKaJctgwk?t=501 The reaction of the “Lords of the Tridant” about him is quite funny.

PapaVanTwee
Guest

Bad part is, he’s in all the snitch memes now. So you can be ignorant of who he is, just know he’s a snitch.

There is nothing that makes my day worse than a comic that has absolutely no reference to whatever game it’s reference too……………

It can’t be worse than Tingle in the earlier Legend of Zelda games can it?

here i thought he would just bring up the nice interactive map on his slate and check off the little guy

ok can somebody please explain this too me? I dont live on the US and i only use facebook (rarely) so i dont get this.

.The gist of it is a rapper was arrested for something and started snitching on a lot of other people

Ross
Guest
Ross

Was an up and coming Mumble rapper who was a wanna be blood gang member. Got arrested. Min sentence of like 70 years. Rolled over completely snitched out everyone he ever knew. For a plea deal.

Famous for his rainbow hair and many many MANY “69” tattoos. Google “69 rapper” for the spelling of his name.

TL;DR.
funny comic.

Leon
Guest

Am I SUPPOSED to know him?

Twilight Faze
Guest

You’re better off not. If you HAVE to know, google Tech N9ne and go from there.

Leon
Guest

Did he invent fire, or discover the wheel?

Sadly I get the reference. On the plus side, this was a perfect use.

Deaks

If you can’t control your curiosity (though like Tim, I strongly encourage you to), it’s Tekashi 6ix9ine. Any time you spend researching him will leave you with that gripe of demanding that time of your life back. NatKayz summed it up perfectly well – rapper got arrested, started ratting out any and everybody else he could.

Though, I do appreciate the memes comparing him to Martha Stewart.

Teilo
Guest

Well, I too knew nothing about him, but found him in about two seconds. After seeing a few photos on TMZ, I immediately wanted to punch him in the face. Didn’t bother reading the article.

What’s really funny to me is, I don’t even know where to begin a google search with that. “69 tattoo guy snitch”? I don’t feel like that will end well for me.

His name is Robert Paulson.

I just had to look. Glad I didn’t wade in too deep though.

Eldest Gruff
Guest

I researched long enough to see, “Huh, yeah, there really IS a person who looks that stupid.”

And honestly, if you’re dumb enough to get a big 69 tattooed on your face, I don’t really want to know what else you’re doing.

Crakkerz
Guest
Crakkerz

I know who that is, and this is the second comic/meme I’ve seen with him and this theme.

That being said, I have absolutely know idea why these exist and what he did. I also have (to my recollection) ever heard anything that has ever come from this guy. So I’m going to count myself extremely fortunate and move on.

…that is until I get Phil’d in later. Probably.

I’m going to just assume that this joke is about the Koroks being so obtuse with their placement that Link has to dig into the deep seedy underbelly of cartography to find out where the next one is.
It’s the safe path, right?

Twilight Faze

You’re way off base, but your theory is still better than the truth. Go with that.
