Penny Arcade tells Hollywood to kiss its … uh, ring

Quoted:

We’ve been in quote “talks” with three separate entertainment entities, and in every case these people imagine that they are descending from heaven in a shaft of light, hand outstretched, offering to raise us from the ghetto squalor of comics and the Internet. They offer terrible money for a tremendous amount of work, and we’re supposed to accept whatever they say because they are from Los Angeles or New York. We don’t need them, and never will. Our readers have assured this. The next emissary from those debased kingdoms can fall to one knee before my golden throne and kiss my signet ring.

— Jerry Holkins of Seattle-based Penny Arcade, an online comic strip that has apparently attracted the attention of Hollywood types. FiringSquad.com interview here (courtesy Kotaku).
