webcomic link of the day
Pants Pants Revolution is a different kind of Web comic: it's generated by pairing randomly selected avatars with snippets of conversation gathered by a bot from the conversations in a chat room. Here's what the site has to say about how it works:
Pants Pants Revolution is an experiment in automated humor. The strips are generated by a bot that sits on the Subnova Hotline server. Every 30 to 60 minutes, it starts recording the chat. When it gets enough text, it will compile a strip with random avatars (some users have permanent avatars) for each speaker. Each of these strips is then archived. Members of Subnova can then rate each strip for its humor content. The archives can then be filtered by humor levels.
...as well as this disclaimer:
This system is by no means perfect, and non-funny strips will be common. However, there are also some downright hysterical strips that manage to pop up.
Also be aware, the site tends to load slowly.
