Super-duper post today to make up for the lack of one yesterday.
And unless I get some votes other than doing every comic every day, I may have to change the poll. Come on guys, there is no way to do that many comics in one day.
But I digress, here is what we have today:

I think that AIG has cost the government, which means the American people, way more than Lehman Brothers ever could have. We've given mulitple multi-billion dollar loans to AIG and the government now owns about 80% of the company. Lehman Brothers may have screwed quite a few people, but not as many as AIG.
Did you know that AIG stands for American International Group? What the hell does that even mean? And they are, probably, going to change the name once they get back to being a profitable company because of all the negative things that AIG conjures in the imagination. Do people really fall for that? Do people think that Phillip Morris is a good company since they changed their name to Altria? Feel free to leave thoughts in the comments.

That's what I call a win-win scenario. She gets to go to a fancy restuarant and he gets to watch basketball for 90 minutes.
I'm not sure why anyone would want to watch basketball for 90 minutes, but I guess that's a personal choice.
Why is that troubling? That guy is contributing to society way more than any of us are. He is getting people interested in physiology and biology. All we do is sit in our chairs and write mean things about comic strips. I'm not saying being mean to comic strips isn't fun, it just doesn't contribute to society in a meaningful way.

Actually, the Earth will be in alignment with the center of the galaxy, or something like that. Somehow the Mayans knew that it would happen on that date 3000 years ago, or whenever they made the calender.
And is clover an important resource or something? Or is it just that the disappearance of clover would be devasating to a sheep?
Herb & Jamaal 3/20/09
Yes, Herb & Jamaal, no one really reads the nutritional facts. My question is this: why is he eating chips? Has he run out of money and can't afford anything else anymore? That's my hope.

Without all the Irish stuff a leprechaun is just a midget.
Or dwarf, whatever your preference is.

"Dehydrated Water, it's got that concentrated water flavor!"
But seriously, people said that bottled water would never catch on and look how popular it is. Bottled water is so popular that it has single-handedly advanced the destruction of the planet by at least 3000 years. Come on people, just get the water from your sink, it's the same mother-fucking stuff.
