Party Mix

comic-2012-10-01.jpg

I think the secret to running a successful bar or club is entirely in being able to attract the right mix of clientele. Everything else must seem a breeze compared to cracking this Navajo code of bar proprietorship. ↓ TranscriptRICK: We should get the hottest girls for our party! BILLY: If we want hot girls to show, we're going to ... Read More »

The Trouble With Fedoras

comic-2012-09-26.jpg

There are certain fashions that look great on gorgeous people with a team of stylists. On the rest of us they just look weird. Yes, there was a time when the fedora and trench coat looked fine. I suppose they’re fine if you want to look like a confused time traveller. Just don’t expect to recreate the Mad Men aesthetic. ... Read More »

Call of Battlefield

comic-2012-08-31.jpg

There’s nothing wrong with how a preference in the game you play. In fact, a complete lack of preference for Call of Duty, Battlefield, or Halo would seem kind of odd. Almost like someone just didn’t care whatever they played. That being said, my nephew gets a bit worked up over which is “best” and how wrong players are of ... Read More »

God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

comic-2012-07-23.jpg

Facebook is regularly flooded with self-affirmation posts, which are then flooded with likes and pats on the back of the affirmer. It’s like one giant self-help group, but everyone you’ve ever known is part of it. That’s just creepy. ↓ TranscriptAMANDA: What are you putting on Facebook? MEGAN: I've had a rough week, so I was trying to post something ... Read More »

Grade Bargaining

comic-2012-06-18.jpg

Beyond being heavily staged, shows like Pawn Stars are amusing if you think of their practices being done in any other environment. Some students do try to negotiate grades. I’m not sure where this works, but I suppose it does for some. ↓ TranscriptMEGAN: Here's my paper, professor! KLOWNUS: Hmm, looks legit. The paper feels right, and it has a ... Read More »

Professors Don’t Mind Late Papers

comic-2012-06-15.jpg

I’m always amused by the student who proclaims there should never be deadlines because that one professor that one time let them slide. This is foolproof logic. ↓ TranscriptMEGAN: My paper is late and the professor is going to fail me! BILLY: Relax! I've never had a professor fail me. BILLY: I turn in papers late all the time! They're ... Read More »

Prepping for Finals

comic-2012-04-25.jpg

I’m not sure I’ve ever quite had this student, but I have had ones who did nothing all semester and then asked me the last week if there were any bonus points they could get. Yes, but you will need all the bonus points from all the classes. Maybe I should make it like Highlander, and you can win the ... Read More »

Poor Dating Habits

comic-2012-04-20.jpg

Guys love to pile on the complaints of women only dating bad boys. Of course, most men only judge women by exterior appearances. Point? Both sexes are shallow and largely responsible for their own dating problems. Still, it makes for great explanations on why everyone else’s dating philosophy is so wrong. ↓ TranscriptMEGAN: Axle never returns my calls. Rod never ... Read More »

American Remake of Downton Abbey

comic-2012-03-14.jpg

Downton Abbey is like crack for women. I’m nto entirely sure why, except for the fact that it’s a historical soap opera. Going back to the work of Jane Austen (which wasn’t historical at the time, grant you) those have always been popular with women, so I assume any historical piece would work. I’m still holding out for the Biblical ... Read More »

Video Games vs. Dating

comic-2012-02-24.jpg

I actually see this go on a lot among college students. Female students complain their boyfriends are only interested in playing video games when they come over. Some might see that as a choice, but I think far more often they’re simply oblivious. That’s fine as long as they’re happy being oblivious. ↓ TranscriptAMANDA: Why don't you stop playing video ...
