Mogo gets a boner

That’s why he doesn’t socialize.

I wonder if, when Alan Moore created Mogo back in the forties or whenever, he ever envisioned two idiots would someday imply that the planet Lantern could get an erection.

Look at us. Look at what we’ve become. Mogo gets a boner.

Mogo gets a boner.

    Well, if Mogo can line up all the trees to on its his surface to form the GL logo, I’m sure he can move mountains and/or geysers for the purposes of procreation.

    Kinda gives a new meaning to rock hard, am I right?

    ….I’ll show myself out.

    It should come as no surprise that Larfleeze wants to hit that.

    No other superhero boner-control in space, I guess.

    I like how hal looks slightly pissed off that she would even ask such a stupid question. Nice way to sneak misogyny in there Chris. ;)

    Anyone else notice how fitting the current ad is?

    Love how the colors pop on this one.

    But, um, GUYS: “bi-weekly?” That would mean you update only once every two weeks.

    Love it. And don’t listen to Lynn, WW is not a “buttaface.”

  14. AirDave

    Not sure which is more disturbing…Mogo with a boner or Larfleeze. ‘Cuz doesn’t Larfleeze want what everybody else has…?

    [Reply]

  15. GL2814E

    Money. I wonder if Hal has to do that when WW is in her regular outfit?

    Lynn – Damn, Lynn! I’m trying my best!

    Derek – Yeahhhh

    Cody – I appreciate the mental effort you put into imagining that.

    LoyalV – Do not Google image search Larfleeze with safe search off.

    Caryn – I’ve always thought Hal and Conan kinda have the same hair (except for the color).

    April – I hate that the ad changes so frequently. I wish that one ad could always be the one you see when you look at this comic.

    PJ – Look it up. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/biweekly

    Mathematicscore – Thanks for having my back.

    AirDave – I’m scared to know where you’re going with that train of thought.

    Chris – Sorry, but you’ll notice that “dictionary” definition has two contradicting definitions — like looking up “hot” and it being defined as both “significantly heated” and “unbearably cold” — makes no sense. In COMMON USAGE, “bi-weekly” is every two weeks. “Semi-weekly” is twice a week. It comes down to the word roots, even:

    http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/biweekly-versus-semiweekly.aspx

    Take it from someone who’s worked in publishing at weekly, semi-weekly and monthly publications: No one refers to “twice a week” as bi-weekly. Just trying to help alleviate confusion for those expecting more or less bang for their lack of buck.

    I guess when I said “no one,” I should have qualified that as “no one outside of the same people who put apostrophes before ‘s’ to pluralize words.”

    I JUST WANT YOU GUYS TO BE THE BEST EVER.

    We can not repel a penis of that magnitude!

    Well Chris, it all started with me wondering how a planet could get a boner. I then surmized that, since Mogo can manipulate the tree on his crust, he should be able to do the same with rock formations. All to create, as Derek wrote, a boner of seismic proportions.

    But how would Mogo “finish,” as it were. Why, geysers of course! I pictured Old Faithful erupting out of the ground at Yellowstone, tossing astounding amounts of water and steam into the air. Thrusting superheated air and hot, sticky mud at the same time into the atmosphere. Impregnating the oxygen with its potency.

    And great…I’m now gay for planets that can have boners. And maybe Old Faithful. Looks like a trip to Wyoming is in order.

    You’re all slowly killing my childhood.
    Also, I’m glad you did not put Atrocitus in that picture. He probably doesn’t have the gift of shame.

    @PJ: t’s a bisexual word; it can go either way. Plus, “twice-weekly” wouldn’t look as good, and that’s all that matters.

    excellent ora to outfit color match haley

  25. GL2814E

    So was Atrocitus’ boner just too ‘raging’ for a mere notebook?

    [Reply]

  26. chrishaley

    PJ – Dylan made the awesome banner, so you’ll have to get him to change it if you think it’s wrong.

    Am I the only one who hears Mogo’s voice as Moses from South park? I guess it would be more accurate to say the Master Control Program from Tron.

    I don’t know you, PJ, but I’m sure you’re a fine fellow. We, however, are on opposite sides of the fence regarding this whole “bi-weekly/bi-monthly” thing. Just as there are two definitions for both (bi-weekly meaning twice a week and bi-weekly meaning twice a month AS WELL AS bi-monthly meaning twice a month and bi-monthly meaning every two months) there are two schools of thought. I just happen to be in the other school of thought and I just happen to think we’re right and everyone else has just gotten used to being wrong and thinking they’re right. It’s like those people that say “nucular” instead of “nuclear” or “irregardless” when in actuality, irregardless is not a word. It’s just regardless. I’d love to stay and chat, but I’ve got a notebook to um…take notes in.

    Duder,
    HI-EFFIN’-LARIOUS! Seriously, I laughed out loud(without the gay LOL)

    What no Killowang jokes?

    Okay, this whole semi-weekly/bi-weekly/bimonthly thing is stupid. Not the argument, but that there can be an argument. That’s bad communication. I say we throw biweekly right out and adopt new words. From now on, “twice a week” is “tweekly,” and “twice a month is “fortnightly,” and twice a month is “partilunarcyclical.”

    Please update your dictionaries.

    I’m sure there’s a Blue Balled Lantern joke somewhere in here, but I’ll be damned if I know what it is.

    Not pictured: Atrocitus giving new meaning to having a ‘raging hard-on’.
