|My friend Patrick spent the past year teaching English in Japan. It's a good way to get yourself involved in lots of sexy adventures, I'm told! Near the end of his tenure there, he gave some of his students blank Dinosaur Comics printouts, and asked them to fill in the dialogue as an English exercise. Much like a similar process in Korea, the results are hilarious and surreal.|
Thank you to Pat, and to all the anonymous students who worked on these comics! Pat was apparently a big influence on them, judging by how often he shows up in the comics. Also, I think it's pretty neat how despite having no knowledge of the comic, and coming from an entirely different cultural context, the character of T-Rex often appears largely unchanged. I've included text annotation in cases where the handwriting can be difficult!
The final comic below - the one at the very bottom - may be the saddest and sweetest dinosaur comic ever.
