[...] wanted to take a moment to say congratulations to Francesco Marciuliano, on his 1000th Medium Large strip. If you haven’t seen Medium Large before, this weekend might be a good time to check it out. [...]
Congratulations! May you have a thousand more strips, and may you drink slightly less than one thousand alcoholic beverages in celebration of your success. I would buy you one if I actually were capable of doing that without it seeming slightly creepy.
Congratulations! I love the strip, and will always be a fan. I raise my entire bottle in honor of the majesty that is Medium Large! (The vomiting that takes place as a result will be in “honor” of something else.)
Speaking of prints, if you ever branch out to that, I will be first in line to buy the clown funeral one. Oh, and Linus waving his gun around. So I will bilocate to be in those lines. Only for you, Ces!
When I drag myself out of bed every morning and take a bus for an hour and a half to the fucking east side of Lake Washington, I go to 7-11 and buy a beer to drink away my hangover and try to forget what a fucking living hell my life is. Medium Large is sometimes the the only thing keeping me from breaking the bottom off of that Bud Light and stabbing myself in the neck. After I finish it of course. I wouldn’t want to waste beer.
There was no happier day in my life than when I first discovered ML. It beats out graduation, losing my virginity, my first relationship, and the discovery that I don’t need to shave my armpits daily. I thought all the cool guys did it.
Congratulations, Ces. Thank you for TGP, TODD, Victorian-Era Superhero, the Tough Cookie, Pickles the Clown, Tarantino Linus Van Pelt, the haunted lemon, Communist-era Czech M&Ms, British telly week, the Power Ring saga, providing pathologically obsessed libertarians with a free platform, Hershey’s Acid, child news anchors, the Naked Prefect, ML programming director Cheryl Haskwell, insane Ted Forth, and of course everyone’s favourite, Wheelchair Cheney.
Am I late? I don’t care: Congratulations, Ces! Thanks so much for the first 1000 strips… and for the NEXT 1000… because you *are* going to do 1000 more. IT IS OUR WAY. (Here’s where we all turn and give Ces the icy stare.)
