#142: Parody Week: Megatokyo
[[“megaxkcd” in Japanese quote characters. An anime girl with pigtails, long rectangular earrings and a blank expression stands with her arms at her sides.]]
Narration: In today’s megaxkcd, our protagonist comes to terms with his romantic love for a girl who is a video game console accessory.
Man 1: Wait, I’m not sure we should parody megatokyo.
Man 2: Fred Gallagher does seem like he might take it kind of hard.
Man 1: He really does.
Man 2: Poor guy. We should try to cheer him up.

Man 2: Fred? Fred, please come out. It’s OK. Don’t cry, Fred.
Man 1: We… we baked you a cake.
