Great Gift for Any Occasion

comic-2012-03-28.jpg

This strip stemmed from actually seeing the first panel message in a movie theatre. I get the sentiment, but like with many things, when taken to its logical conclusion it just seems silly. However, if I just lost a loved one, then maybe a movie would cheer me up? Probably not The Hunger Games, though. ↓ TranscriptMOVIE SCREEN: Movie gift ... Read More »

Mocking Student Writing

comic-2012-03-21.jpg

I always like the idea of really elaborate schemes to teach simple lessons. It’s sort of the whole sitcom mentality where an adult character creates an elaborate setup for a Halloween episode all just to teach the kids to listen to their parents, or drink milk…I forget which. ↓ TranscriptMITTENS: I've been going over some inter-office emails and I noticed ...

The Same Question

comic-2012-02-10.jpg

Usually teachers are excited for a student to ask a question. We want students engaged. There’s a moment we realize that they’re actually asking something we’ve already said four or five times. In that moment you can see pride turn to disgust. Go ahead, kill a little bit of your teacher’s soul. ↓ TranscriptRICK: Professor, why do you always look ... Read More »

Root Canal

comic-2011-12-16.jpg

Today’s strip is fairly autobiographical. It actually went up a little late because I was drugged out on pain pills from a root canal. It’s amazing what pain can do to a good-hearted person. The type of mean it can bring out. And then there are people like me who don’t need an excuse to be mean. I suppose such ... Read More »

Internet Comments

comic-2011-12-12.jpg

There’s a sadness to scrolling too far down on a story you’re reading and discovering the comments section. For most major news sites this area is a festering cesspool of racist, homophobic, and misogynistic diatribes. Most people don’t speak this way in everyday life, so is it the anonymity of the Internet that opens up this hidden side to the ... Read More »

Not Running for President

comic-2011-10-07.jpg

This amused me that within days two people called press conferences to announce that they wouldn’t be doing something. How bizarre is that? That’s politics, and honestly is probably a bad sign when the populace is begging people to enter the race and they will not. ↓ TranscriptCZAR: I'd like to take a few moments before today's meeting to announce ...

iSad

comic-2011-10-06.jpg

Yesterday was a sad day with the passing of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. When I heard the news it just made me incredibly sad. I wasn’t sure why at first. Certainly I have no real connection to Jobs. While I use some Apple products, I hardly consider myself a diehard fan. Nor would I be as sad to hear of ... Read More »

Sharing Is Not Caring

comic-2011-09-14.jpg

It seems like every couple of months there’s an overhaul to a major Facebook feature and people freak out in response. I’m not entirely sure why people pretend to care about how they receive their status updates, when in truth Facebook is just there to feed into their narcissistic worldview. I suppose anything that inhibits that is frustrating. Now, if ... Read More »

Past Life Lincoln

comic-2011-08-17.jpg

If people really were reincarnated, I wonder what would happen when they met their nemesis from a prior life? Hollywood uses ideas like this for romantic comedies, but I’d rather see a thriller. Can you imagine John Wilkes Booth the dog catcher chasing down mailman Abraham Lincoln in a battlefield of suburban sprawl? Eh, maybe not. ↓ TranscriptKLOWNUS: Our nostalgia ... Read More »

Do It Yourself Hipster Kit

comic-2011-08-12.jpg

One-upmanship is always a bit humorous to watch. The problem is that the people participating never seem to realize it’s one of those childhood games that can go on forever. For example, if you were to tell me you can eat six hamburgers, I could say seven. If you were to say eight, I could punch you in the throat. ... Read More »
