Ok so I have some issues with it, (that's the reason I was putting it off for a year), but I figured I should finish it and get it out there.

I put the musical selections on my user page.

Meh.

This is just me, but I've never liked the tankman series. The "humor" wasn't funny, and the sound was a tad off. This is just overall bad.

Yes, well. . .

I never came close to laughing, the line about the Pythagorean Theorum which everyone has been jizzing over in the reviews was simply perplexing.
Even if he had been able to measure the distance, height and calculated the hypotenuse, this information alone would not have enabled an accurate shot. Surely the important calculations would be trigonometric, and mechanical?

Just measure the distance and height of the buildings, use
tan x = opposite/adjacent to find the angle, then use equations of motion on the vertical and horizontal components of the angle in order to find the velocity required to attain the target.

Now the crux of the joke, was surely that the TANKMAN in question was being incongruent with his reference to an accurate mathematical solution using long words ('Pythagorean'). The same end could equally be achieved using the mention of an actual plausible method. This leaves a few possibilities:

1. The creator did not realize the Pythagorean Theorum was insufficient to calculate the answer.
2. The error on the part of the TANKMAN was deliberate, which only tones down the incongruence and makes it even less funny.
3. The error on the part of the creator was deliberate, in order to see how many people would realize this, and how many would just go 'LOL PITHAGRON THERUM'

Coming back from that digression, the lines in general were poorly conceived and delivered to my mind, but alas not to the minds (hm.) of my fellow newgrounders. The only potential of humour I saw in this was 'I know, but I don't care', which could have raised a smile in the right context.

The animation was smooth enough, congratulations on appealing to the great unwashed, but Tricky Madness 2 owns this any day.

oh boy.

well i'd hate to break it to you buddy, but you're not the first snobbish math prick to try and pick apart what is supposed to be a throw away gag.

I'd also like to point out that amateur literary snobbery doesn't pass for intelligence..quite the opposite actually.

im not amused

well the graphics and animation are great, but i really didn't find anything funny about it, a couple little giggles is all i got. I don't understand why it has risen so far up in the charts but you know whatever, im just one man


JohnnyUtah responds:

well dont look at me. i just make em.

^^Good Points^^
The graphics were certainly quite impressive. The lip syncing was pretty good, and certain scenes, like the chase scene was pretty cool.

^^Needs Improving^^
I watched for a good five minutes and didn't even laugh. Not even a smile. Honestly, I barely see much besides a few jokes that are "I shit my pants lets give this a 4.70 score funny". Honestly, this was not very funny at all to me.

Rubbish

The slow pace and the weak punchlines deem this animation as not funny at all. Also the voice acting was very irritating. The only reason this is top is because it's a suck up to Newgrounds. The graphics were ok, so I'm giving you 3/10.
