    Anyone else reading the kid’s swear as ‘Zotto!!’?

    Ozotto, maybe

    In l33t-speak, @ is usually interpreted as “a”, not “o”. Sometimes you see it in online comments, because the administrator has set up the system to block swears, the b@st@rds.

    To be fair, the kid is uttering a spiral, not a ‘commercial at’.

    It’s not l33t-speak, it’s cartoonish. Completely different languages.

    Is it me, or are the two dogs in the first comic already outside? There’s grass, a fence, and puffs of vapor coming out of their mouths. Why aren’t they reacting in the same way as the leashed dog? Where is the leashed dog coming in from/out of?

    “Zotto” sounds like a product name.

    “New Zotto! The Swear Word that Sticks to the Wall!”

    “Kids! Ask your mom to buy you Zotto!”

    Helen Keller asked for Zotto, and look what happened to her.

    My guess is that the leashed dog spends most of his time inside and is coming out for walkies. The other two are acclimatised.

    I’m guessing only 1 of the 3 swear words uttered by the dog are actually 4 letters.

    Apropros name for the thread…

    Whenever I see those comic-swear words I imagine them sounding like something Q*Bert would say. (It’s funnier that way, I think.)

    Q*Bert didn’t speak English, though you got a fairly good idea of what he meant. It’s as if he managed to break the language barrier when swearing.

    Incidentally, where exactly are the words in the last panel of the second cartoon? I’d think that they should be plastered to the window, but the last panel clearly shows them not to be on the window, but outside the house entirely.

    Are they just hanging in mid-air? The little “bouncy lines” around them would seem to suggest just that, as if it were so cold the words themselves froze — but if that was the case, how could anything frozen traverse a closed window?

    The second cartoon’s last panel might’ve been funnier if the parent just said:

    I think, J-L, when you revisit your link, that you may utter something similar to those squiggles in each of the toons. Unless your “Oops!” was intentional…

    Am I the only one still on the fence about J-L’s idea of how the second comic would be funnier?! I mean, Zotto!
