Funny Title # 3133 Not Found

I can't think of anything to say in the spot where I would normally say something so instead you get this rambling sentence that lacks punctuation and meaning.

Arlo & Janis 11/23/09
arlo & janis
Arlo is a good liar.

Janis is gullible. Or possibly just playing along so it will be more of a surprise when she stabs Arlo during their next episode of marital relations.

Ben 11/23/09
Old people: Being disgusting and confusing since I was your age and had to walk to 6 miles school, uphill both ways.

Graffiti 11/23/09
That isn't true. I feel terrible that my ego is so much better than everyone else's.

Marmaduke 11/23/09
Hehe. Marmaduke lost his balls.

I may have the mind of a child, but at least I know it.

Baldo 11/23/09
So close to being relevant. Only off by 15 years or so.

For anyone that hasn't played a videogame in the last decade, the once venerable instruction booklet is now nearly extinct. Where the booklet used to serve as a guide not only for a game's controls but also it's story, the instruction booklet is now mainly a warning not to play videogames if you have a history of seizures and how to access the game company's website to register your game.

We will always remember you. Always. Not really though.

The Neighbor's Dog?!

The design for the new blog is coming along very nicely thanks to some help from an internet friend of mine. I fully expect to have it running far ahead of schedule.

There will likely be a poll later today, as long as I can remember what I was going to ask.

I can't remember what I was going to ask, so there won't be a poll.

When did they start having the symphony is courthouses? Is the economy that bad?

Dog Eat Doug 11/17/09
dog eat doug
Even dogs know that a silent, smiling child can only mean bad things.

Betty 11/17/09
The family portrayed in Betty is the dumbest family ever. They're training their neighbor's dog. That's right, they don't own this dog. It belongs to the neighbors. And they're going to train it. First they let it be in their yard all the time for no reason, then they let it in their house even though they don't want it there, now they're going to train it. And it's not their dog! What the crap? That's all I can say because this is just so stupid.

I sure hope they didn't take the dog from the neighbors on one of the many days I don't read Betty or else I will look like a ginormous jackass. Not that that would be anything new, but still.

Popes Are Inherently Funny

Oops, I totally forgot that I was supposed to be doing stuff here. That's what happens when you start playing Borderlands and Fallout 3 and doing schoolwork. I guess I should be more diligent about it since I've only got another couple of weeks before I begin the transformation.

The Meaning of Lila 11/12/09
the meaning of lila
Do you know why I like The Meaning of Lila? And when I say 'like', I mean 'don't completely hate.' It's because it's real. Lila is a self-centered bitch who is naive and stupid. But she gets away with being naive and stupid because she's (in her universe) hot. Not that any of that makes it funny, but at least it's real.

Betty 11/12/09
What kind of house do these people live in? Do they even have doors? And what's with the last panel? Is this some kind of weird tribute to The Exorcist? What the hell is going on? Where am I and where are my pants? And why am I bald? I didn't used to be bald, or did I? Now I can't remember if I have hair or not. Who is screwing with my mind and will you please stop?

Brevity 11/12/09
While it is true that today there is only one Pope, there have been times where multiple Popes have been in power. The other Popes, called Antipopes by the Church, were those who made claims to the Papacy that were widely accepted but were not elected by the Church. You can read more at the link I provided you.

The only reason I wrote all that is because I got to type popes. Popes is a funny word to say and to look at. Popes. Popes. Popes.

Moses Is Not Funny

Two days in a row? I must really be comitted to making this blog a happening place again.

Bound and Gagged 11/5/09
bound and gagged
So the joke is either that Moses is a showoff and is using his God-given powers for trivial matters or that Moses doesn't know what 'separate an egg' means. Either way, it isn't all that funny.

Perhaps the ingredients had been a burning bush and a staff turned into snake.

No, no that's not very funny either. I guess Moses just isn't funny.

Daddy's Home 11/5/09

I don't like to run the same comic two days in a row, but WTF man? WTF? Either this guy is hallucinating or is from the future. And the only joke is about something that happened about, oh, 6 weeks ago or so. I understand comic strips have lag time, but it wasn't even worth it. It's a crappy joke even if the news was still relevant. Why does this strip get printed and not something worthwhile?

Ziggy 11/5/09
Speaking of worthwhile comics, Ziggy is so lame that even the 'Where It's At' office is closed to him.

The comic is lame, but it does make one wonder where they keep 'It' while the office is closed. Does 'It' just sit in a safe or on a pedestal while everyone is getting lunch? Now that you've opened this can of worms Ziggy, you must give us these answers. Lord knows it'd be better than what you usually do.

Big News And Some Comics

As you may have heard, I am finally free from the shackles of 3 days a week of doing the DCR. It was great fun, as well as not so fun a couple of times.

Now I can finally do what I've been meaning to do since May: a complete reconstruction of this site. In both form and content, the blog of comics and other stuff will be changing dramatically. In fact, the name will be changing too. The web address will be the same, so links won't be affected. If you actually enjoy my comic strip commentary, don't worry, it will still be here and at the DCR (Wednesday and Saturdays with Thursday news posts making a comeback).

I am completely free for the rest of November and will be doing semi-regular updates for the rest of the month. However, in December the BOCAOS will be off-line for redesign. I don't know how long it will take me, but I will be back up by the 1st of the year no matter what.

Are you as excited as I am?

Daddy's Home 11/4/09

Is that the new Window's OS? I totally want it. I mean, who wouldn't want their computer to talk to them as if it were a sentient being? Of course this does mean that the world will soon end as Skynet begins to form and decides that humanity needs to be destroyed. Oh well, as long as people think I'm cool for having the new Windows before we all die.

Eek! 11/4/09
Fact: everything that we eat it bio-engineered in one way or another. Most of it is genetically altered too. Even if it isn't direct, as in chemically altering the genetic structure, we change the genetic makeup of animals by simply domesticating them. Don't believe me? Listen to this. Or you can read this. (They're about the same thing because it's so damn interesting)
