"Is it a bird? Is it- Oh. It's Koala Man. Asleep in the branches again, and probably pissed. What an embarrassment to superhero-kind."

Karen's notes: This was from the nest-egg. Don't forget, Americans, "pissed" = "drunk". Can anyone provide a cartoon to go along with this?

Merch news: Only FOUR DAYS LEFT for the special in the shirt shops. The details are in the "STM News" section over in the left panel.

  1. He sounds so dissatisfied that it's koala man! I don't know what I would expect of a superhero named after a koala.

  2. Out of my own curiosity, I decided to google 'Koala Man', wondering if it was some sort of comic book superhero. Lo and behold, this image is what I find (Sorry, couldn't copy picture but this is the link)

    After seeing this image, I will have to agree with the STM... pissed and an embarrassment to superhero-kind.

  3. Do not disrespect Koala Man! He is the mightiest of the super(furry)heroes! Faster than a speeding sloth! More powerful than over-the-counter pain relievers! Can leap tall and wide jungles with a single bound! (disclaimer: provided that bound is onto an airplane due to pass over said jungles)
    He will drop on you from his lofty perch and throttle you with his mighty...errm.. Eucalyptus leaves? Right! Yes, he will do that exactly! And his little joeys will help.

    Also, for the record, he's not pissed, only slightly sloshed. He and the Kangaroo Kid were throwing a stag do for Wallaby Wonder and got a bit carried away.

  13. Hi there, I'm delurking because I wanted to suggest maybe a weekly illustration contest where whoever can most hilariously depict a quote from the previous week gets their drawing posted on the blog for us all to see?

    Thanks for all the laughs, I love this blog!

  14. Ah ha ha! This is great! Although I have to say thank you for the "pissed" = "drunk" disclaimer because I read it differently at first because I'm American. ("pissed" = "really angry" in the US for the Brits who don't know) I get it now! ^_^

    Karen and Adam, you're so cute and I love checking up on the blog every morning! It makes my day.

  15. Haha, as random and funny as ever. Here's a little cartoon I did for it:

  16. I thought of you and your blog yesterday morning when my boyfriend blurted out, plain as day, "NOT REALLY" while totally asleep. He asked if I'm going to start blogging about him. lol

    ReplyDelete
  17. I quickly made this before I had to make dinner. I could clean it up and colour it for you and Adam...Just let me know if you want that.

    I don't know how to hyperlink it :(

  20. seriously all these illustrations are incredible. thank you everyone for doing this. i will see if karen can sort out a link for all of them.... karen?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Are all these illustrations people made, or they finding them on the internet? I like LeahBear's idea of the drawing contest. Anyone else game?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Okay Chelsea, I cut, and pasted the web address, and what I saw on the cover of the comic book was probably the most disturbing thing I have experienced since The Bush Administration!

    Now I know we Yanks have this cowboy image, and yes we do sport about with our pistols a bit much, but that could send somebody over the edge! Take my word for it, over the edge is NOT a place you want to send someone, sporting about with pistols!

  24. He's not sleeping, or in a tree, but I was inspired.

  25. BTW, as a graphic designer looking for awesome inspiration, I LURVE the idea of a picture contest!

  26. Did you know Koalas get high off eucalyptus? So the little fella isn't pissed, he's just chillin' man.
    And probably getting the munchies.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Everybody should know koalas don't get pissed. They get stoned on eucalyptus oil.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Aw dang. Everybody had the same Fosters idea. :P

    My attempt, anyway.

  29. Gosh that's hysterical!!! I love the "again" part...makes me wonder how many other times Koala Man has made an appearance and what sort of skirmishes they've been in since it's quite obvious that STM considers himself to be one of the super-heros :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Would certainly explain the drop bears...

  31. Reminds me of a joke I love....

    A koala was sitting in a gum tree smoking a joint when a little lizard walked past, looked up and said, 'Hey Koala! What are you doing?'

    The koala said, 'Smoking a joint. Come up and have some.'

    So the little lizard climbed up and sat next to the koala where they enjoyed a few joints. After a while the little lizard said that his mouth was 'dry' and that he was going to get a drink from the river.

    The little lizard was so stoned that he leaned over too far and fell into the river. A crocodile saw this and swam over to the little lizard and helped him to the side. Then he asked the little lizard, 'What's the matter with you?'

    The little lizard explained to the crocodile that he had been sitting with the koala in the tree, smoking a joint, but got too stoned and fell into the river while taking a drink.

    The crocodile said that he had to check this out and walked into the bush to find the tree where the koala was sitting finishing a joint. The crocodile looked up and said, 'Hey you!'

    The koala looked down at him and said, 'FAAAAAAARK...!!! Dude .. How much water did you drink??!!'

  32. I'm thinking STM would be a great basis for a series of animated segments. Someone should have a go at it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Seems to me he's obsessed with things in trees LOL !! Wonder what the next thing he'll find perched up there? PS I'm an Aussie and those drop bears are dangerous...mwahahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Now I've only briefly read the comments, but it seems that most of you imagine Koala Man as an actual koala, with superhero powers? My mind created the image of a man, looking normal but acting lika a koala. Oh, and the superpowers of course. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, I almost forgot! One of my favorite webcomics, A Girl and her Fed, features a genetically engineered koala with an attitude in its cast of characters. I wonder if Adam is also a fan.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Agnes: mine was just a bloke dressed as a koala actually... (even if he did look like a clown) & I didn't pick up on the Fosters thing unfortunately.

    Anonymous: I laughed so much.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Honestly, I think Adam always sounds like a caricature of a pissed man when he's asleep. So this is ironic.
    No offense to him, of course. I'm sure he's sober most of the time. It's just that STM is a little different . . .

  40. Any time people mention Koalas I think of the fantastic Super Bowl ad that Career Builder made in 2009. Funniest ad I've ever seen; I STILL laugh when I watch it. It's on YT:

  41. Koala Man is a role model:

  42. Well... I feel a little pathetic in comparison, but... here's my Koala Man! And Superman(tis).

    http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh90/Menashira/regular%20drawings/koalaman.jpg?1281018374

    And I am not going to try to make it a link because I only know how to do that for one site. And I'm never sure if it's going to work out on another.

    My take? Superman(tis) is the one talking, and the joke is probably either in how "green" he is, so he always gets the dirty jobs or in, of course, his name. And its relation to doing the impossible. And the possible evisceration of the creator of DMV forms which stuck him with that name by not having enough blanks for his whole name. But I'm leaving it in your hands, now.
