what if we built a frontend for mastodon that rendered threads ala comic chat http://kurlander.net/DJ/Projects/ComicChat/resources.html
(if someone feels insane enough to build this I'll do some art for it!)
@odinsdream It's a real thing! Imagine if your IRC chats were illustrated with cut-and-paste of Jim Woodring drawings.
It mostly survives today as "the app Jerk City is made with", JC being a long-running webcomic that is basically "some dudes talking about dicks a lot".
@anthracite Jerkcity's continued existence is kind of a wild thing
