Sally Forth as Written by a Japanese School Girl

Posted in Uncategorized by cesco7 on May 6, 2011

Humor is international, in that sometimes it takes someone several continents away with a preliminary grasp of English to make something truly brilliant.

To wit, I received the following email from one of the contributors at Something Awful Forums:

“I’m Sarah…I’d been posting newspaper comic strips from the states as rewritten by my junior high school students. I teach English in Japan. I’d been considering sending a few of them off to the original writers and artists but never got around to it. Your appreciation for robot monkey-inserts made me regret it, so I wanted to at least get Sally Forth’s re-imagination to you, as it was coincidentally one of the better ones. For the project I took about a week of strips from various comics, erased the dialogue and handed them out to my class of 20 15-year-olds to do as they wished. Sally Forth was selected and rewritten by a happy girl named Makoto. I hope you find it as amusing as I certainly did.”

And so, with that in mind, here’s Japan’s better answer to Sally Forth, which would be no doubt called Ted Forth: Heartless Bastard.
