What The Comic Is: A man shares an uninteresting conversation with a goat. A
second man urges the first to enjoy their vacation, while he observes the armless locals. After sipping from his cup, the second man basks in the aesthetic of France.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: That goats “baa” instead of “bleat”. Goats are not sheep, StoneToss.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: So, full disclosure. This was the first ever StoneToss comic I ever saw, and the first time I came across it I actually laughed. I didn’t know who StoneToss was at the time, nor did I yet know he was Red Panels. I just thought Shmorky was trying his hand at writing Family Guy cutaway gags. Because yeah, this is an offensive and xenophobic comic, but under a lens of irony it’s something that passes well enough as just offensive shock humor. I remember seeing people defend this strip when it first made rounds across the internet, claiming it wasn’t being racist but was just making an offensive joke. I even thought the same; until I googled StoneToss and thus, like the Scooby Gang yanking off the tablecloth hood of yet another asshole in a cartoon ghost costume, unveiled exactly who was behind the comic.
This isn’t just a self-aware and offensive little gag about refugees or immigration (as StoneToss might try passing it off as), he actually has real and personal hatred against what he feels is happening to ‘white civilizations’ in Europe. When Family Guy or South Park make a gag like this, it’s because their liberal and progressively-minded writers are being offensive for comedy. When StoneToss does it, it’s because he’s a shithead.
The comic’s title, “Nouvelle Vague” is translated to English (from French) as “New Wave”. Either this is a reference to the obscure French musical group of the same name, or it’s a reference to what a shithead StoneToss is. Which one could it possibly be?! Use your phone to vote now!

What The Comic Is: George Washington worries that future Americans will invent forms of superior firepower. Another, possibly second George Washington, expresses that their canons would be of no match to such hypothetical arms.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: Gun Control Bad.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: This comic is poking at the argument that, at the time of the Second Amendment’s drafting, the authors could not have possibly predicted that firearms would go from slow-firing, slow-loading single shot hand canon muskets into machines that could project bullets at a rate of hundreds per minute. The Second Amendment, of course, is the right to bear arms. Granted at the time to ensure the newly minted nation of the USA could be properly armed in case of any type of foreign (or domestic) invasion, many opponents of the USA’s gun laws argue the amendment is outdated. This is something I won’t really get into here, but the gist of this comic is that even though the power of our handguns and rifles has evolved far past what the founding fathers ever thought would happen, our ‘cannons’ (siege, artillery, heavy guns, etc) would also evolve.
Yeah, good job, StoneToss. We have rail guns and tanks and fighter jets and unmanned drones and scientifically bio-engineered cat girls with dicks that we loose upon enemy armies so they’re too busy fucking catdickgirls instead of fighting us (this last one is probably the most controversial modern weapon yet, but this is neither the time nor place to debate such things); so yes, our large arms have powered up next to our small arms.
StoneToss’s argument here is addressing a point that almost no one really makes, because it means he doesn’t have to argue with anybody about it and potentially come to a self-realization that what he said was fucking stupid. No one who is pro-gun control thinks gun-toting second amendment activists can oppose the power and weaponry of the US military (in fact, on the contrary, it’s the other way around; anti-gun control crowds are generally the people who cite their need to be able to defend themselves against their own government). What people who want gun control are worried about is an armed maniac lighting up a school/mall/church full of people; people who don’t have cannons or fighter jets or cat girls with dicks to defend themselves.
What makes this comic exponentially stupid is who StoneToss aimed (lol aim, like with gunz) it at. He isn’t mocking second amendment activists (StoneToss himself is openly pro-gun and in the future would go on to make a couple very obvious pro-gun comics, as we’ll cover here sometime later), but rather he’s trying to frame this as a mockery of pro-gun control. Like he’s trying to say “lmao calm down CUCKS, don’t you know we invented things better than cannons??“. What does that even mean, StoneToss?? WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?!?1/1/1/1/1/1
