Sugar Suck

Sugar Suck

Removes every last bit of sweetness from food. Rendering it inedible.

This is the end of dessert as we know it. And continental breakfast.

Sugar Suck held the coveted title of Current Champ from Wednesday, April 16, 2008 to Thursday, April 17, 2008, heartily vanquishing Marmalady to earn it. Unfortunately, brutal defeat came soon after, at the merciless hands of Pretzeled Pete.

This hero's magnaminous likeness was captured at the moment of glorious triumph by Kevin .

Audience

Quotes overheard while standing in the crowd that gathered to watch the carnage…

  1. This hero sucks.

  2. Sweetness.

    Or lack thereof.

    And it implements a variation of a top onomatopoeia of mine: "Schloop!"

    (The sound chupacabras make.)

  3. Isn't he worried about adult onset diabetes?

    Also, isn't it spelled "Sugar"?

  4. HAHAHA - GOOD CATCH, Ajob223! Another case where I'm concentrating so hard on the lettering that I forget to spell correct!

    I shall commence with the fixing :D

  5. Whoa, I thought the "misspelling" was just some secret joke that went over my head.

  6. You're right, AJOB. I searched for "suger" and found only Abbot Suger--French historian and "patron of Gothic architecture".

    Looks like "Suger" Sucker sucked the sweetness out of the Superest. I'm never coming back--until the next post.

    Can't wait to see how cheekily this is handled.

  7. But why's he so skinny, then?

    It's not fair! *pouts!

  8. Didn't realize i'd be stirring up such a conundrum. Sweet.

    Also, I am impressed with the stealth and speed of the spelling correction. Is it possible that our beloved Kevin is in fact a diabolical NINJA!?!?

  9. Why, I wonder, does this fellow remind me of Anton Ego?

  10. And I'm wondering why he has a touch of the cameltoe there. In fact, from the head down he really reminds me of Kate Bosworth.

  12. L: He's like a cross between Ego and Frozone (from The Incredibles).

  13. Oh wow! I just found this site on 37signals and I love it. I can't wait to start from the beginning and catch up.

    Great work!

  14. Seems like the only logical enemy is:

    Diet Coke Addict.
    Nary a need for Sugar.

  15. Abbot Suger was the man by the way. Maybe the forefather of the deep friar and this clown
