SlashCo80

That's not even a stereotype, just a joke. The spider is the real prick.


BeeExpert

Do you ever think, "isn't it time someone do something!?!?" This is the time. We are the someone. The thing? We break into the spiders house at night and beat the shit out of him. Edit; you in?!


SlashCo80

I'm gonna wait for him to finish building a web, then I'll walk through it and go "ew!" and vacuum it.

No, just break a few of the strings that support it so it’s all limp and broken. That piece of shit can clean it up himself.

strong_philtrum

Oh, a human. Are you depressed? If you are I hope your life gets better!


Semi-Pro-Lurker

Not all spiders build webs. So I guess you could consider a web-building joke to be sterotyping the spider if you've never seen it build a web.


moobiemovie

Except it's on the end of a web.


dutch_penguin

Spiders can use silk to hang from without being web building spiders, I think. There are like 10 types of silk total, with some species having up to 8.


Semi-Pro-Lurker

That's just a string. But I don't know enough about spiders to say whether non-web-building spiders use string to move up and down places.


katofu

I recently saw a jumping spider coming down from the ceiling with their silk string so I'm pretty sure they do.


Semi-Pro-Lurker

Thanks for letting me know. This thread is another instance of uneducated people acting like they know everything.


moobiemovie

So, it's holding on to a string with its ass? None of the legs are holding on.


Etzell

Ah, the [Tarzan.](https://www.reddit.com/r/theydidthemath/comments/c588mm/request_how_hard_tarzan_have_to_clench_his/)

Morphchalice

Typical spider


Schattig1984

Dude is developing web as he speaks. It's not a stereotype, it's an assessment of reality


Marshall_InTheDoor

Depression is the most common illness for human at the moment


fidjudisomada

And spiders are laughing about it.


Happysavage228

This is why a lot of people enjoy ruining or ending a spider’s life

OmicronNine

How do you know what stereotypes spiders have for humans?


fidjudisomada

Came here to say this.


Orffyreus

It's just depressed.


OvenCrate

Spiders are better as testers than developers, they really love finding bugs

Mygaffer

Web developer isn't a stereotype, it's a pun.


ypsm

Neither of those are stereotypes though.


menavi

Presumably in spider world there's a stereotype all humans are depressed. But web developer is definitely not a stereotype!


LedFloyd0

Is it a stereotype if some spiders don't make webs?


Dobber16

Maybe could be, but this one is literally hanging by a web


eGzg0t

Not all web shiters are web developers. Please stop stereotyping.


mcsper

Maybe he’s web-sitting for a friend


IAmLexica

If they were true then they'd be holding onto the web by their legs, which their not.


kutes

So is it ok to find someone doing something stereotypical and then bluster on about it? You wouldn't download a toaster?


GIVE_ME_A_GOB

Are you kidding me? This spider worked so hard learning a language different than his own to better communicate and you are going to quibble because he chose one word poorly. Such a Reddit move…and that’s the real stereotype.


Lizard__Spock

The spider did continue his career as a web developer and Jeremy now lives in his mom's basement with three other spiders.

TheMooseIsBlue

I discovered yesterday that two completely unconnected sets of friend also call their gay uncles “guncles” and so I’m pretty sure this is just how English works now.


sumit131995

How is a web developer a stereotype for spiders ?


Drag0nfly_Girl

I think the creator is referring to the fact that only about half of all spider species make webs. But tbh, it's still not a stereotype, just an inaccurate generalization. And the human was making a joke, anyway.


AggravatingGap4985

Get the shoe, Jeremy


PotatoDonki

This site is making me hate comics.


prdors

The comics that are posted are so awful I honestly mute the posters once I see a terrible comic from the account. Like this one.


SpogNYC

Amen to that.


Defoger

this makes no sense, what the human said wasn't a stereotype, it was a pun, what the spider said was a stereotype


digmachine

This is really bad


CMburnz

This comic fucking sucks


Mirochan

Remove the 4th panel entirely and it's a bit better. Or remove the text in the 4th panel.


bonenecklace

Or remove the 3rd & 4th panel & just have it be a non-sequitor, the last two panels feel really forced.


karmander

I agree. "You prick" is cringe and makes it clear the author couldn't come up with an actually funny punchline. A text-free fourth panel would be a marginal improvement because it would become understated.


hauntcult

I’ve seen it done better a few different times. The “DePreSsEd HuMaN” joke in comics is stale.


DirtyProjector

Uh what? A spider being a web developer isn’t a stereotype, it’s a pun. Man Reddit comics are bad.


theivoryserf

> Man Reddit comics are bad Who is upvoting these


iUsedtoHadHerpes

Bots mostly. They upvote anything that gets an initial bump in r/new. Then more people see that it's getting attention and assume it must be good because "their peers" approved it and upvote it higher.


Metaforeman

I thought the boomers had come here after the great Facebook exodus. r/funny has taken a nosedive in content in the last few years. The other posts these days are just tik-tok cringe too. Sad times.


cavkie

R/funny was never funny.


Metaforeman

You may be right, I was late to the Reddit party so I wouldn’t know. I only browsed 4chong before this, because edgelordism and anime tiddies.


helcat

And here I am assuming I don’t get the Youngs’ humor because I am an Old.


Metaforeman

Here’s a [really interesting YouTube video](https://youtu.be/oVlspd9hxFA) on zoomer humour. I actually really respect the concept of it, but I’m a bit peeved that It’s so esoteric and unrelateable to me (because I haven’t been subjected to the same memes as them). Irony has defined that generation, like cynicism defined millenials, or puns and satire defined boomers.


helcat

(Insert Gen X erasement joke.)


helcat

Thank you for that vid. I had to turn it off halfway through. I was not understanding any of the explanations. “The fact that it’s not funny means it’s inherently funny” just does not compute for me. But I appreciate the effort.


iUsedtoHadHerpes

It's been this way since I've been here. I think you might have just noticed.


Tensuke

It's probably all the teenagers, not the old people.


hucifer

Beats me. r/comics has been going for years and to this day I refuse to believe that actual humans are actively upvoting stuff in there.


1CEninja

Children I think. There are a lot of 14 year olds here that have grown up with iPad in hand that have short attention spans, and have done the whole "scroll scroll scroll heh scroll scroll" style of bite sized entertainment their whole lives. Those folks love 4 panel comics even if they're mediocre, because it caters to the way they've lived there entire lives.


pfizer_soze

Animals addressing humans using a boring first name is top-tier humor to some people.


DirtyProjector

Thousands of 8 year olds are on Reddit upvoting these


ZippyDan

But most spiders do develop webs. But not all.

ZippyDan

Some spiders produce spider silk but don't develop webs... Seems you are stereotyping him/her...


Hey_im_miles

This comic sounds like a john Oliver "joke"


1aDireitDepoisEscada

And why can't it be both? To you (a human, after all) it's a pun and maybe you (as well as jeremy) would make this comment to the gentle spider... Know that this spider may be a web developer by nature, but it has dreams! may want to sing, play the piano, hunt hobbits, tap dance or, why not, web developer but for personal interest! End your stereotypes! Edit: I refuse to justify the sarcastic tone.


Electronic-Ad1502

That’s the joke friend.


El-Disco-Bandito

But a human being depressed isnt a pun.


iUsedtoHadHerpes

They're two halves of two different jokes.


1CEninja

Doubly so because the stereotype isn't that humans are depressed, it's millennials.


iUsedtoHadHerpes

I get it, but I don't "get" it. How is web developer a stereotype? He's hanging from a strand of webbing. He's a spider. It's like two halves of two different jokes ~~masked~~ mashed together. It doesn't really make sense. The punchline is also just the spider being an asshole in response to a pun (which still isn't a stereotype).


AnjoXG

pretty common to see stuff like this on here, or the jokes sub. people who don't understand joke writing think of a funny punchline and then try to write it backwards. in this case the punchline is a dud as well so I dunno. i'd encourage OP to keep studying and trying though.


imakefilms

Why does he ask him if he's depressed?

iUsedtoHadHerpes

No, you stick your dick in a bottle of rice liquor named Jeremy.


chingchongstrikes

So does my boot spider


Semi-Pro-Lurker

Any spider experts here? Not all spiders build webs and some produce silk without building webs. Do non-web-building spiders sometimes hang down from strings of silk like this one?


sailorjasm

The spider is on a web. Not all spiders make webs but this one does


Psychotic_EGG

ALL spiders can make webbing and almost all, even those that don't make webs use anchor lines and will dangle from from a web line. Tarantulas and other large spiders being the few that won't because they're too heavy. Now a jumping spider for instance won't purposely dangle from an anchor line. But when it screws up a jump or slips it will definitely hang from a silk thread. So that's not indicative of being a web builder.


GoGoPowerPlay

Fuck you spider, you're the prick here


bcb77

Wow, not even slightly funny.


ClutchAnderson712

So like… *huh…*


UncleDrunkle

but hes literally building web as he comes down from the ceiling...this isnt a funny comic. The punchline doesnt make sense.


Alderan922

But it is in fact a web developer, you can see it by the web he developed to talk to you


IAMJonnessss_01

Jeremy kill that spider.


Lapis_Wolf

How is it a stereotype to say spiders build their home?


lawdylawdylawdydah

Jesus Christ, we’re all just okay being depressed. There’s no hope, the government/politicians won and broke everyone and there wasn’t even a fight lol


buckbuckkkk

This is great but would actually I think be even funnier without any text in the final panel

Spiritual_Toe_1825

Depression, isn’t that just a fancy word for feeling bummed out!


PotatoDonki

Spiritual_Toe_1825, you ignorant slut!


FakinUpCountryDegen

it would have been better if the spider also had something funny as a response. That's...not even a zinger. A better retort from the spider: "Oh! How observant! Do you work in Artificial Intelligence?"


BeforeYourBBQ

Is depression even common in the US? How about globally? Seems like a first world problem.


Revolio-Clockberg_JR

What? Depression is common everywhere. Depression doesnt depend on the developement of a country. It can have many causes.


BeforeYourBBQ

Oh. Ok. Is it just more talked about in the open in the US. In SE Asia I never hear about it. Edit: wow according to this study[0] it's more common in SE Asian, I must live under a rock. [0] https://www.statista.com/statistics/981372/distribution-of-depression-globally-by-who-region/


Revolio-Clockberg_JR

Im no expert in this but i really dont know how these statistics can be accurate. Intuitively i would say that there are a lot of cases which are not diagnosed and therefore not in these statistics. But its great to see a redditor who actually investigates and then changes his/her opinion. Thats exactly how it should be. Progress through dialog.


IanHumphrey32

This is not funny


SirAbeFrohman

It's a pun, not a stereotype. That spider is mocking mental illness.


SouledOut11

Y'all are putting way too much thought into this. Edit: Jesus fuckin' Christ


roundr_

It’s more that the comic maker didn’t put *enough* thought in, and we’re just pointing it out. Edit: Jesus fuckin’ Christ


EldenGutts

Maybe you're not putting enough in


iUsedtoHadHerpes

Or maybe the creator didn't put enough thought into it... If we only process one half of the mish mash of the two different jokes at a time, it's fine. It's when you put them together that it doesn't work and makes you overthink it.


digmachine

This comment is so funny lmao. Defend this shitty comic with your life!!!


Head_Tumbleweed4793

Spider is true tho for its question


MortalTwit

Why do stereotypes hurt Jeremy?


PersonalityGlad9887

Stereotypes are there for a reason. In this case both stereotypes were true. And being true is the case for most stereotypes.


RedbloodJarvey

A comic that doesn't feel obligated to use the gratuitous 'F' word, so I can share it with my family??? Yes please!


Moriteourious

Stereotypes are not made from thin air. They are based on statistics. And seems like the spider was right, so what's the point here?


peepeepoopoogoblinz

How about we make a deal spider, you bite me and when I collapse I’ll land on you


DaShortRound

Yea thatd hurt. But not as much as getting flattened by my chancla.


KhajitHasWaresNHairs

I'd like to think spiders would be kinder than that or more sardonic like Charlotte from Charlotte's web.


GoldenC0mpany

Oh, a spider. SQUASH!


Darth_Senat66

Yes! I am!


theRailisGone

But... are you though?


GrizzledTorpedoMuscl

Stereotypes are usually based on past experience and reality.


God-of-Tomorrow

But the spider is a web developer and the human does look depressed, stereotypes are what they are for a reason if all so am so are alike that’s their culture, but obviously we are all individuals and with that all kinds of variables, stereotypes are fine but when you make assumptions you risk making an ass out of yourself.


demon_ix

"I mean, I am a web developer. But not because I'm a spider!"


TwinkGapingHole

That spider is a douche.


collusi0n

I initially read it as, "Are you a depressed?" like it was his entire-ass career


moriarty70

My wife is a web developer AND depressed. Turns out I married Spider-Woman.


Taikunoaku

The only hurtful stereotype is one that isn't included.


STYL3D

Jeremy... smAll ENemy sPIder


SquareTheM

I read this the wrong way


HellwingX

The spider's on a web though, little asshole. No wonder I hate spiders lol


Thereallazytrickster

It’s not really a stereotype I have severe depression


Cynical12313

That was a joke. The thing that pains more than stereotypes is having stick in the ass. :D


Evilmaze

Humans got nothing but depression. It's pretty much a trademark of being a human.


Eptiaph

My kids laughed. I think they found it funny that the spider was talking to a person. Then they asked what depressed means.


DamnBirdGuy

Stereotypes exist for a reason cunt ass spider


MrSillmarillion

Oh. Shoe?!


triforce777

"Yeah, I am depressed asshole"


[deleted]

That spider is a douche, he's literally shitting out web as they speak.


gaerat_of_trivia

the spiders on the web, so yes, the human is depressed


Shira518

They're happy to find bugs too


RealMasterKrain

I too would be offended to be called a web developer


HydraLeavy

Stereotypes can be funny to certain people to that certain race. If it is a excuse to not make friends or talk to that race thats where I cross the line. (racism)


LonelyLilKaiju

They don't hurt as much as the depression do
