GU Live: "Forsooth"
Posted: Thursday May 15th, 2008 by

Each year the Social Security Administration post a report on the most popular baby names from the previous year. The name Emily has topped the list of girls' names since 1996 and Jacob has topped the list for boys since 1999. But in 2007, amidst a glut of similar names, the 931st most popular entry on the boys' list is Raiden.

I find it somewhat amusing that the name Raiden appears on the list. But, honestly looking at the other "aiden" rhyming entries, I have no doubt it's presence is completely unrelated to the Mortal Kombat character of the same name.

I brought this article to the folks in the GU Live Feed, and the conversation in the panel is almost exactly how Sanct and Kitono responded. I was so amused by the quip, I ran with the idea and drew them both into the comic. Yes, those are caricatures. Not very good ones, but caricatures none the less.

See what you miss when you don't log in to watch every night?

Anywho, thanks Sanct and Kitono. I hope the comic atleast brings you braggin rights with people who've probably never heard of the comic before. **grins**

Today's Pimpage: Sanct is wearing a "Derp." shirt. I have no idea what the hell it means.
