Hi all! Your comments of the week in a moment, but first: as you may or may not have noticed, I tweaked my site layout a bit to accommodate somewhat larger ads in the left-hand nav bar. The nav bar should just expand a bit so that it can contain the wider ads; however, a few people have let me know that they’re seeing the ads stick out over the actual text of the posts. If that’s what you’re seeing, your browser is using a cached version of the stylesheet that defines the site layout; holding down the shift key and reloading the page should solve the problem, though you may have to do it a few times. If it doesn’t, please email me at bio at jfruh dot com, telling me what web browser and operating system you’re using, and I’ll see what I can do to help.
And with that tech matter out of the way, here is the comment of the week for you to enjoy!
“I’m attracted to Mary Beth, and I don’t know why, because she isn’t exhibiting any secondary sexual characteristics yet. Then again, we’re birds, so who even knows, right?” –Lumaca Morente
And the runners up! Very funny!
“If Skyler is under the impression that puberty will clarify his budding sexuality, his current anguish is but the tip of a terribly confused and horny iceberg.” –digupthebones
“‘Gardening all day?’ how long does it take to water seven flowers?” –Dartpaw86
“I assumed Daddy Keane was extolling the get rich darn fast glories of multi-level marketing: ‘See that little boy in the kitchen? You get 5 sucker — I mean associates — signed up, and you’ll get something just like him. Ten associates, you get a bigger one, like the kid in Zits, only useful.” –jim, some guy in iowa
“Jarod slouches more than Les. How does that even work? Will we just see him propped up against various walls (and, inevitably, a police officer) but never see how he got from one wall to the other? He needs a posture pal just as much as he needs nicotine gum, and I’m sure will, over time, learn to welcome both.” –Lily Sincere
“Jarod’s been smoking for three whole panels, and hasn’t managed to get cancer. Who are you, and what have you done with Funky Winkerbean?” –Dan
“The absolute most clever thing about this ruse is that outside witnesses and video evidence will still show that the ‘Tarantula’ is saving the day while ‘Spider-Man’ is sitting on his ass, tied up. His reputation remains intact!” –Chareth Cutestory
“Credit where credit is due to Crock for showing and not just telling. We know the restaurant is bad not because it’s directly stated, but because of the hollow-eyed corpse on prominent display there.” –Dragon of Life
“The hardest part was keeping this fake mustache on, but I’m still the guy with the webbing … HEY! That would have been so much easier than this glue I used. Oh man, it’s like sometimes I forget I even have superpowers.” –Brad
“I really sympathize with that grouchy background waiter in today’s Crock. ‘Eight years of acting lessons for this? And that guy is clearly reading his one line off that pad of paper! This is bullshit.'” –Joe Blevins
“Those damn birds ruined every coat Johnny Walker’s ever owned! His vengeance will be swift and technological!” –gleeb
“Mark bends forward in panel one to help give the country some of the gas Johnny claims it needs.” –Illustrator Steve
“One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that in bed he had been changed into a monstrous verminous bug. He lay on his armour-hard back and saw, as he lifted his head up a little, his brown, arched abdomen divided up into rigid bow-like sections. From this height the blanket, just about ready to slide off completely, could hardly stay in place. His numerous legs, pitifully thin in comparison to the rest of his circumference, flickered helplessly before his eyes. Fortunately, Gregor could still use silverware, and his new-found extra limbs let him use three at once. So he went out to dinner at a fine establishment, where he found himself vague disgusted by the human couple talking about their relationship problems.” –Voshkod
“Discovering that Ed follows a polytheistic religion involving ritual sacrifice via schoolbus is by far the most interesting thing that has ever happened in this strip.” –Esther Blodgett
