It was alright.
I thought it was well animated and all, but it didn't feel all that funny... i don't know. I just thought the overall joke wasn't all that funny and there wasn't much to make up for that. Except the art. The art was goood...
its not a trend exactly.
more or less, its been around for a long long time. explosm has always done it, but lately they are becoming more well known on newgrounds, and newgrounds has had the angry face for a while too. i agree, i do see it a lot though. kinda funny. you get a 5 sir.
