Things have devolved into personal attacks here during the “Man vs. Bear Debate.” Can a man beat a bear in combat? Who the hell cares – time to get petty. Shakespearean insults and all.
The Man vs. Bear Debate: Part Three Transcript
This is a transcript of the January 17, 2023, RGBots comic.
Green is severely agitated; his claw is raised into the air for emphasis.
Green: As you can see, Your Highness, my opponent is a dumb red box who deserves to die.
Red (off-screen): Hey! My likeability has no bearing on this debate. Get it?
Blue and Red are staring at Green.
Blue: First of all, it’s “Your Honor,” and it’s not even that. Secondly, why are you attacking your opponent and not his argument?
Red: because he is an asshole.
Green raises a digit in the air, explaining his debate strategy.
Green: I am using the tried and true strategy of pointing out my opponent being a huge stinky turd that you’d be foolish to believe. By attacking my opponent instead of their claims on their own merits I am winning over hearts and minds.
Red (off-screen): Shenanigans!
Green has a proposal! His arms are raised for emphasis!
Green: I bite my thumb at you, sir. I propose that we settle this through action, not words!
Red: I concur!
Blue: I’ll get the knives.
