The Actually Squad by kevinbolk The Actually Squad by kevinbolk
Whipped this up as a follow-up to my previous 'Mascot' strip. I'm sure at one point or another, we've all been members of The Actually Squad. XP

<ActuallySquad department="musical">

"Actually, that 'carrot recorder' is closed at the end, so it's more of a gemshorn."
"Actually, despite what DCI says, the contrabass bugle IS a tuba, since all tubas are part of the bugle family."
"Actually, the sousaphone is not a tuba, since the bore is different"
"Actually, this is not a bassoon, this is a giant recorder."
</ActuallySquad>


Yup, done it. And I'm not ashamed. And that last one is woefully common.

Yep. Been there, as a music geek.

"Actually, that's not a recorder made from a carrot. That's a gemshorn."
"Actually, that's not a sousaphone, that's a helicon."
"Actually, this isn't a bassoon, this is a really big recorder." (This one I feel justified in, since the two are so WILDLY different)

*Waves hand.*  Yep, been there, done that, got the strange looks.  Someone posted a video of a recorder made from a carrot--whereupon I mentioned it was more like a gemshorn.  My co-worker, who'd pointed me to the video, found my response hilarious.

I fully intend to get a t-shirt printed with a large A on it and go to a con as a member of the Actually Squad.  What color do you suppose those shirts are?  I always pictured them as dark blue and not black.

Actually, wether you shoot with your right or left hand when using a bow is usually determined by which eye is dominant. Some might not follow that though since it's harder to do things with your non-dominant hand. (I tried it, because I don't seem to have any dominant eye, and well... It went crap Sweat Drop revamp )

BEST!!!

I'd love to see these guys take a tear into the real A-team. "Actually, Mr. Baracus, the word is pronounced "fool" with an L sound at the en-" *pounded*

And I'd hate to see all the corrections they make to Murdock's madness.

Huh boy, this is just so funny.

umm i dont know if you know, but the asian culture once had a saying "A good offence is a great defense" so they put the shield in the dominant hand to have a better guard. just thought you should know, and Legend Of Zelda being a asian game, it more likely that he's right handed, just going by that rule. I could be wrong but I don't appreciate people that think just because the game is in there language, it follows their culture.

Actually... XD ...Shigeru Miyamoto has admitted that he made Link left-handed because he's left handed himself, though that characteristic really changes with each game, but that's mostly due to hardware limitations (sprite mirroring), but he's canonically left-handed. Or so wikipedia says anyway. ^^

I cannot tell you how much I want to correct you with an "actually, yadda yadda yadda" statement right now, even though I can't find anything wrong with what you've said. I'm a disgrace to the team! Oh, for shame! Pity fools, pity me!
