Without any ado whatsoever: your comment of the week!
“‘Self-help can be a slippery slope.’ Mary is talking about masturbation? It is masturbation, right?” –Nancy Russo
And your runners up! Very funny!
“Was it really necessary for that poor UPX driver to drag that stupid package up a flight of stairs? So much better to leave the life-sized Doctor Doom in the front window of Montoni’s, where it will serve as a reminder of what the pizza is doing to the customer’s colons.” –Joe Blevins
“Clearly this Elihas Starr is up to no good. He refers to the Daily Bugle as ‘esteemed.’” –BigTed
“And in news from the tribal area of Pakistan, 42 people attending a wedding were badly overfed when a U.S. pizza drone mistakenly launched a pepperoni and onion barrage.” –Voshkod
“Let’s grab him and bring him to a meeting of Children of Alcoholics. Because this sorry little asshole needs a PROGRAM!” –word-doctor
“I can answer all of Josh’s questions in one answer: The purple thing is the Goldfishes’ robotic body.” –Pak-Man
“As if we need more evidence that Tommy is shiftless and irresponsible: he leaves the milk out on the table while he eats breakfast! His mother should have taught him better, but she was too busy with her book-learning.” –Arabella
“This one panel does a fine job of capturing the degradation of addiction, with details like his addle-brained eating of children’s cereal, losing the will to shave and sitting around in an undershirt while one’s mother — your own mother, you bum! — goes off to work hard. Somehow, though, all that wasn’t enough. Somebody said, ‘If people are really going to get that he’s a slave of prescription painkillers, we have to show Tommy caressing the bottle and reading take two tablets at mealtime as needed over and over, lovingly, for as long as this story arc goes on.'” –handsome Harry Backstayge, idol of a million other women
“I lost my watch here in this in-between realm where only my bed and a you, me, and Otto seem to exist. Hey Sarge, how long are they going to be doing those inter-dimensional experiments here at Camp Swampy? I lost my watch. I lost my watch. I lost my watch.” –Chareth Cutestory
“Why does Bitsy hate the squirrel? Is it the squirrel’s freedom? Some displaced thanatophobia? ‘How dare this squirrel continue to live, after I have died! The arrogance! The unmitigated gall!’ Why stop at the squirrel, Bitsy? Why stop at the squirrel.” –bunivasal
“Of course Ed is lucky. He’s offended countless people. He’s committed god knows how many felonies. He has yet to pay for any of his actions.” –Liam
“I’m a bit put off by Billy saying ‘father’ instead of ‘daddy’ like he’s suddenly the heir to old money.” –Naked Bunny with a Whip
“Yes, Billy: your dad does have a wallet but he also has a son without any bankable skills. Back to the bench, kid.” –pugfuggly
