Kind of like: “One ______ short of a _______ .”

How about:

“Another Brick® in the Wall.”

Before I read any of the replies this is the first one that popped into my head. I think it (not the contracted version "Brick'd," which I am not a fan of) is my favorite just above "AFOL," which would work better as "AFOLs." Both "Bricked" and "AFOLs" are straight forward, easy to remember, and allow for quick association with this comic.


Either could work, the shorter the better since the comic is based on short & sweet punchline.
brick'd / brick-ed/bricked or brickery

GREAT fourth comic. This one sealed the deal for me.

Some name ideas:

The Greebles
The Cheese Slopes
The SNOTs

or my favorite...

Continuing this line of thought, I think "Bricks," works as well, perhaps better than Bricked/Brick'd. It synergizes with the established and known brand, From Bricks to Bothans, and this type of association is key, especially in terms of building and maintaining viewership and longevity (provided the comic maintains a consistent quality over time).

I don't mind if you guys use Afolol. I was always afraid that the name was too "inside joke."
I only developed a couple of print-worthy ideas for it:

-Do minifigs dream of electric sheep
two people conversing. One asks, "do you think minifig dream of plastic sheep?" there is some pondering. other one answers, "I'm not sure if they dream, but if they have nightmares I'm sure it's of being a Mega Block.

And one about how landmines are a violation of the geneva convention (don't think this is true), but that it's okay to leave Lego blocks laying on the carpet (I have stepped on them countless times).

I do like AFOLols or AFOLulz. I don't think the title is too insider-y considering the gags so far. "AFOLs" has already been taken, it is the title of the comic strip Greg Hyland draws for BrickJournal and the collected printed/PDF comic book from 2004.

Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! YES!
If there's going to be a poll, this one's getting my vote.
IMHO, it suits the comic perfectly.



@volumex:
After reading through replies, I've realized you've posted "brick'd" before me (mine was "bricked").
It's quite obvious credits for both should go to you, so I'm going to edit my post if I can. I should have
checked other suggestions before adding mine. :x

Here are some other suggestions:
- A Brick Odyssey (I've watched 2001: A Space Odyssey few hours before...)
- Bricknick (like PicNic on Flickr - PicNic's purpose is not the same, but it seemed like an ok idea)
- Brickolith (Space Odyssey once again...)
- From Bricks to Bubbles (text bubbles)

EDIT: Edited and added some suggestions. :D

Nice comic as usual. This "new AFoL" arch definitely brings back memories. As for the name, are you planning on always keeping it a three panel strip? If so, I thought of "1x3" (pronounced "one by three") as in 1x3 Plate, which could be an alternate title. Just my two cents.

OR...as the kids say: "NAU: Nice Arts Use"? I'm joking, unless you like that of course ;) .

How about AFOLly? A melding of AFOL and folly? Just a thought.
