And The Joke Is?

Tuesday is the day before the middle of the week. Make of that what you will.

The Meaning of Lila 3/2/10

Lila either has the most boring job in the world or, much more interestingly, is extremely horny.

Home and Away 3/2/10

I know, how about you act like parents. You don't have to justify every decision to the satisfaction of a child, mostly due to the fact that it's impossible most of the time.

Or I suppose they could just tell her the truth: that they're both out of work and will have to sell her into slavery.

Frank & Ernest 3/2/10

Almost every time I read Frank & Ernest I want to chop down a tree. . .with my fist. Good thing I'm lazy and there are no trees in my house.

The Doozies 3/2/10

I can't imagine being so angry that being asked to turn on a light would set me off, but I've never worked in a lamp store.

He looks pretty pissed in all three panels, actually. I wonder what happened to make him so angry. Perhaps some simians got into the store and started breaking stuff?

Brewster Rockit 3/2/10

Indeed, the moon is slowly drifting away from the Earth. Pretty cool eh?

Not sure why you'd want to try to pull it towards Earth again. That would probably end up with the moon smashing into Earth. Good thing I don't have to worry about it.

Bewley 3/2/10
I can't find the aforementioned joke. Am I just dumb? What have I missed?

Bewley: the "joke" is that the kid is strenuously directing him towards a particular card, so in the end when the kid draws said card from the deck, he claims it's not the same card. Terrible, terrible execution of a dumb joke.

that's sort of what i was thinking it was supposed to be, but that's still not really a joke.

Re: The Doozies . . . I worked in retail for thirteen years. Towards the end of that, a customer looking at me wrong (or unfolding a t-shirt) could put me over the edge. And I can still be in a line in a store, hear someone make a stupid comment to the cashier, and have my blood boil all over again.

One "favorite" is "There's no price tag on it . . . it must be free, then, huh?"

hardy har har. like I haven't heard the last 72 customers use the same line . . .

Yep. We retail slaves are a bitter bunch.
