Metapost: Lovely spring COTW
A reminder: there are still 16 of you who gave money to my fundraiser but haven’t replied to me confirming your address and/or desires for rewards! Please email me at bio at jfruh dot com, if you are one of these people!
Meanwhile, April is really here, and it’s nice, at least where I am! Here, enjoy this spring-y comment of the week:
“Jack seems to be overly fixated on Tommie’s turtleneck. He’s half-heartedly carrying on this nature vs. nurture debate, but on the inside he’s thinking, ‘Is that from Ann Taylor Loft?'” –Joe Blevins
And the runners up! Very funny!
“There’s a lot going on in this little dream sequence, but I think it’s especially interesting to note some of the outfits. Marylou has on a decidedly un-white wedding dress (because she’s a slut!), her moneybags husband has on a tux, and Momma is dressed in black. Like what you’d wear to a funeral. A funeral for your newly married daughter and son-in-law who mysteriously fell into the ocean on the way to Moneybags Island. And who would suspect the little ol’ lady who just came along for the ride?” –pugfuggly
“It’s so edgy the way Apartment 3-G continually subverts the notion that the comics are a visual medium.” –Ed Dravecky
“Stanley should just text the nurse a photo of himself at that moment, with one eyeball so swollen that it’s overlapping the phone. No one could deny that this man shouldn’t be allowed to leave the house.” –Guts Dozier
Mary Worth: “I am glad that we’re not being shown what we’d see dropping in on most able-bodied 19 year olds without girlfriends home alone when they’re fresh out of prison ‘Wha? What are the cameras doing here? This week’s story line was supposed to be at that sandwich place! This wasn’t on the production schedule!'” –hogenmogen
“I just might be able to finish it before the sun burns out. Which will be in a week or two. Stage four cancer of the corona. The astronomers thought those sunspots looked a little off, but we had no idea how far along the disease was, and you know the Sun — so stubborn, didn’t want to see a doctor.” –Voshkod
“‘She looks like those pictures in your browser’s history file, Dad, except with no arms.’ #betterdennislines” –ratnerstar
“Speaking of freaks, Tommie, is there some reason why you keep walking around me in circles backwards?” –Christopher
“The thing that really interests me is the young cop on the left. Sure he looks cool with his mirror shades and no-nonsense expression, but there are hints of amazing depth here. First, his right arm. It is clearly shriveled and atrophied, possibly from a mishandled breech birth like the one that permanently maimed Kaiser Wilhelm II. Does he have to jam a gun into his barely-functioning right claw at the beginning of the day and hope for no firearms accidents? Has he compensated, again like Kaiser Wilhelm, by overdeveloping his opposite arm into a hypertrophied bulge of muscles and nursing a burning resentment toward his mother, Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter?” –Master Softheart
“Today we do see the limits of the Parker’s wealth: the best celebrity wedding officiant they could scrounge up was 70’s-era Don Ho. ‘But I wanted 90’s Freddie Prinze, Jr.!’ whines a petulant April.” –The Mighty Untrained FOOZLE
“I was going to make a joke about how that’s Dagwood’s couch, but then it got all Suessian in my brain: ‘Who said/ that Souphead/ could nap good/ where Dagwood/ Bumstead is normally/ Jughead is ornery/ The forthcoming knife fight is gonna be porn to me.'” –Doctor Handsome
“I saw a movie one time with another character who called himself Prof. Jugs and he also sold a potion that promised guaranteed animal attraction. It was quite different from what’s happening here.” –Chareth Cutestory
“If the old man turned off his hearing aid HOW DID HE HEAR HIS WIFE TELL HIM HE DOESN’T LISTEN TO HER UNLESS THE ANSWER IS HE READS LIPS REALLY WELL IN WHICH CASE HE WAS IN A SENSE STILL LISTENING TO HER WHICH MEANS NOT ONLY IS THE JOKE NOT FUNNY BUT IT IS ALSO LOGICALLY SELF-DEFEATING SO ALL I’M ASKING FOR IS A RETURN TO THE PANT-SHITTING HUMOR WAIT WHAT AM I ASKING FOR?” –Flippin Arkansas
“Heathcliff isn’t Bat Man. He’s appropriated the costume design for his career as a superhero championing the virtues of nothingness, with his blank logo displaying his contempt for the idea of needing a symbol of any one phobia to strike dread into his enemies. We will forever remember the ‘Meh’ flag as the initial warning sign of his descent into nihilism, recognized as such far too late.” –Enlong
“And as her grandma, you should probably give her the money you would have given her on her birthdays. $120 should cover it.” –Kevin on Earth
