    SomethingAwful is satire.

    Is that Oleg !!!! What, is it Halloween or something !?!??!. Oh, the second picture................That's what every little girl who's dad is a gunny wants for Christmas. Those DOODADS at whatever.com are just filling up space with something to talk about, no REAL content.

    Quoth the Wikipedia: In satire, human or individual vices, follies, abuses, or shortcomings are held up to censure by means of ridicule, derision, burlesque, irony, or other methods, ideally with the intent to bring about improvement.

    Are you saying that it is not the opinion of the author that Oleg is creepy as hell? Are you saying this (http://www.somethingawful.com/d/news/concealed-carry-renfest.php) was actually an endorsement of the right to self-defense? When he says
    was he being insincere?

    I think that the reasion they said it was "Creepy" is that it is a photo of a 8 year old or so girl.

    Though it prob would make people go "Who is Oleg Volk?" and look him up ;)

    Probably most of the people reading that tripe have already made up their minds about guns. However, if it saves even one person from the Dark Side, it will have been worth it. All they need to do is look at the picture and click onto Oleg's site.

    I think that photo is creepy too. They remind me of the twins from The Shining...

    I was thinking that the girls are also creepy but I was thinking Village of the Damned.

    Strangely enough i agree with them...





    We have a RIGHT to arm and needs are irrelevant. Comic store beware lol . And for the record i find nothing " creepy " about a couple of young ladies and their ARs .

    Eh, it's somethingawful - it's like 4chan, only not as drippy.

    Pay them no mind.

    Saw them earlier. Any publicity...

    And, yes, 4chan also has collections of my images. Viral RKBA marketing at work.

    Yes, kids learning about something you don’t understand or appreciate is obviously creepy. The children should be kept ignorant.

    Picture is a little disturbing.

    But its art. And art is interpretation.

    I don't need an "excuse"

    Redneckrepairs,

    I'm with you.

    I have a natural (or God-given) right, and I can decide to carry my means of self defense when I visit comic book stores just the same as I do at other times.

    My rights are not up for critique, not from anyone.

    Oleg's Work

    Well, for the "eeww that's creepy" crowd . . .

    Whatever you do, don't go to either of Oleg's online compilations and look at the picture in context.

    Avoid the context. You wouldn't want to know how it dovetails with the other presentations. Context-free presentation helps amplify the creepiness factor.

    I only hope I can get my granddaughters to be that creepy.

    So everyone that is getting uptight about this needs to realize that somethingawful is a joke website. They make fun of anything and everything. You also may not know that there is even a very active firearms section on the site.

    That is very creepy. That purple AR-15 doesn't go with the girls clothes at all. The pink, on the other hand, goes very well with either girl's outfit.

    The problem with all that is that jokes are usually supposed to be funny.

    There's nothing funny there.

    True that particular joke isn't very funny to you, but do you get mad when somebody tells a bad joke about anything else. I happen to be a big fan of blondes and I still manage to keep my cool when someone tells an unfunny blond joke.
