Jerk Phone

When you run into people who can’t ignore their phone for more than fifteen minutes, I do sort of assume they’re in an abusive relationship with their phone. ↓ TranscriptKLOWNUS: I downloaded a new app to help me lose weight. It searches social network site to find pictures of girls you had crushes on back in school. KLOWNUS: Then it ... Read More »

God of Television

I often feel this way. Between innovations that allow me to stream content, and the fact that I can buy just about anything that isn’t included with a streaming package, I feel kind of like a jerk for ever being bored. ↓ TranscriptKLOWNUS: Ugh, there's nothing to watch. BEARD: You have 160 channels of cable, iTunes, Netflix, and Amazon! You ... Read More »

Better Email App

While I have a smartphone, I imagine this must be how everyone without one feels constantly. Just shut up about it. I don’t even want to hear about someone’s new phone. ↓ TranscriptKLOWNUS: Ugh, every time I check my email the app crashes. MITTENS: Here, let me fix that for you. KLOWNUS: That doesn't fix anything! MITTENS: Sure it does! ... Read More »

Popular Literary Themes

It’s an easy joke, but I love the self-defeatism of Dr. Klownus. Plus, there’s some joy whenever someone says something hasn’t been done in literature before. It has. ↓ TranscriptKLOWNUS: There should really be more books about free will. BEARD: What are you talking about? BEARD: Free will is one of the most popular themes in all of literature! KLOWNUS: ... Read More »

Technology in the Classroom

I suppose it must feel that way to people on the I.T. side, but I’m constantly amazed how often I’m told I don’t like technology. Maybe some professors don’t embrace it, but I think most don’t embrace their particular technology because it doesn’t work. ↓ TranscriptMOLE: We're here from I.T. to figure out why you don't use more technology in ...

Dave Ramsey’s Restaurant

I think a Dave Ramsey chain of restaurants might actually catch on. Tell people they can only eat what they can afford, and constantly lay the guilt on them about it. Might be financially and health responsible. ↓ TranscriptKLOWNUS: Peanut butter sandwiches? Only water to drink? I thought we were going somewhere nice. MITTENS: What gave you that impression? KLOWNUS: ... Read More »

Hundreds of Books

I must admit to having lots of books on the shelves of my office, but then sometimes I go into someone’s office and I think they’re overcompensating a bit. Not a lot, but a bit. ↓ TranscriptHOBO: It's an e-book reader and it allows you to carry hundreds of books on this little device. KLOWNUS: But if my hundreds of ... Read More »

Dangers of Laser Pointers

When I was in high school I can recall a friend who had a laser pointer and spent all of his time shining in the general vicinity of another friend just to annoy him. He would wildly flail his arms yelling not to shine it in his eyes. Today, I assume that kid is either dead from radiation, or the ... Read More »

Gun Debate Fatigue

Dr. Klownus has incredibly thin arms. He could be a female model with those arms. And the third panel is a joke, before anyone comments or writes in to correct us. ↓ TranscriptBEARD: I'm starting to tire of this whole gun control debate. KLOWNUS: I'm starting to worry about the gun control debate. I've grown fond of my biceps. BEARD: ... Read More »

Toddlers Are Like Sharks

“Show it, don’t tell” is a good rule of writing. The basic idea, for those who don’t know, is that instead of telling me a character is grumpy, you should instead show me through their actions. In other words, don’t give me pages of exposition from the narrator, but show me through the plot development. That rule is even more ... Read More »
