    That is actually hilarious.

    I was a little surprised that all the women groaned/facepalmed et al and the guys smiled to laughed. I wouldn’t think that gag would have such a gender divide.

    Ok… does not compute, it just fell completely flat.
    What’s the joke about? Why should it be funny or cringe worthy?

    Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was a TV show where 6 homosexual design professionals took a straight guy with poor sense of fashion, and helped remake him into a ‘fashion icon’.

    Queer is also another word for strange or unusual.
    Foci is a plural version of Focus, which is a item through which magic can be cast in the game.

    For those who don’t get the joke, it’s a reference to Queer Eye For the Straight Guy, a cable TV show from the ’00s in which four gay men gave straight men and their residences makeovers.

    Aw, NONE of the women found that funny? I would have thought Abbie at least would have.

    (Personally, I found it hilarious. Granted, I would also have stabbed Joel with the nearest pencil.)

    I’m trying to connect who is playing who
    Assuming Katie doesn’t have a character since she’s DMing (and if she does then one of them is playing Abbie’s Wolf)
    Joel is the warlock and Abbie is the feral halfling, that would leave Sarah, Dustin, Hadeed as either the red headed Burly Lady, Floaty Elf or the Lizardman

    going by the irl reactions though it seems like the red head is Sarah, the Lizard is Hadeed and the Floaty Elf is Dustin
    but I can also see Dustin playing the Red headed lady since she fits the theme his usual characters.

    I enjoy that the warlock’s hair keeps changing pretty colors. It’s FAAAAAA-BULOUS!

    My only defence with respect to the matter of uttering really good-horrible and really bad-horrible puns is to sit out of arms reach of one of my best longtime friends in gaming because she WILL punch me in the shoulder for each-and-every-one after the first.
    Lets be honest here. One pun is never enough.
    Once the creative juices start flowing it takes an iron will not to because, like potato chips, you can never have just-one.
    I for one bruise easily so it is either make it only one and beg forgiveness or sit just far enough away to survive the evening.

    @anon: I’ve been assuming the purple skinned and black skinned characters were Sarah and Hadeed (or vice versa). They look couplish to me and though characters don’t have to match player relations, they can. That left Dustin as the redhead warrior (viking? barbarian?). Which makes sense, because after Abbie, his personality most matches the greeting the character gave Joel’s Warlock (“Hello new best friend!”). Again, doesn’t have to be, but that last is the balance of probabilities in my mind.

    Kind of reminds me of chatting at a tavern Larp, with someone who had ranks in medical skills and I suggested the anatomy skill was “reading the body”… In retrospect rogues might disagree and suggest looting fits that description better.

    That pun was so good I had to share it with a friend, and so bad my flatmate threatened to throw me off the balcony.
