Retro QotD, Retro QotD edition.

Penny Arcade’s Tycho, trying to explain (back in 2009 – told you this was Retro) to his newborn why it was necessary to give her the subtle and powerful weapon that is the name “Ronia Quinn:”

I need you to be thus armed because I fear your mother and I have played a trick on you; we have brought you to a place where hidden weaponry is sometimes necessary. In our defense, and I recognize that it may be insufficient, this was the only world available to us.

That’s good.

One thought on “Retro QotD, Retro QotD edition.”

  1. I remember reading that open letter aloud to my wife as an example of Tycho’s love affair with language. Having children and a love of language myself, and being a geek, I found the whole thing amazing. The third stanza is profoundly touching.
