Post a quote, that could have just been text but instead for some stupid reason is an image, entertain me!

With my career, I am a quest giver in the tutorial section.

The explanation I saw is that the hornets were a subplot by a junior member of the writing team, and everyone else is ignoring it.

Like a bee-plot, but not quite?

I thought it was a forgettable Bee-Side?

I think it's interesting that someone is asking someone else how to spell orange, yet calls them stupid?

That's the difference between an artificial, or factory-made, joke, and one caught in the wild. The factory ones just don't stand up to scrutiny.

Explaining a joke is like dissecting a frog, very few people like to do it and the frog almost always dies.

Frog the animal or the color?

Wild joke, Hobear!

A lot of scrutiny from a bunch of miscreants.

Back to funnies

I feel very "seen" by this one as I'm currently hate-reading the Wheel of Time series.

Life is too short for braid-tugging and skirt-smoothing.

Sanderson did a pretty good job of wrapping up that series, but it's just so, so not worth all the hours to get there.

Yeah, I'm still on the fence about finishing it. I stopped after reading book 10, commonly regarded as the worst of the series. To pick it up again, I'd have to read recaps of the books I've already read and mostly forgotten. On the plus side, absolutely nothing happened in book 10 so a recap shouldn't be that long.

The trick is to listen to the audiobooks and you can speed them up. Despite being a slog at times I still enjoyed them in the end and don't regret reading them all.

I'm super looking forward to the TV series if nothing else because they have an opportunity to sand off the roughest bits and tighten it up.

It can be improved upon, like The Boys, or it can become shlocky disaster a la the Shannara series.

Oh god. Yeah, I tried the Shannara series and got 3 episodes in and went, "why am I still watching this?" I loved the books when I was young and only later realized just how incredibly derivative they were. It would have been hard to overcome that in the TV show and, well, they didn't.

The Elf Queen of Shannara was the very first fantasy book I read when I came to the US. I had no idea what it was, what it was about, or that it was a part of a series, or what a fantasy book series was. It was a very confusing experience.
