Metapost: Pre-vacation comments of the week!
Hey everybody! Just a quick note to let you know that I’m going to be on vacation from the blog from this coming Monday through the following Sunday and your favorite Uncle Lumpy will be here and be in charge. As ever, be nice to him! Also as ever, he’s too nice to try to pick a comment of the week, so this week’s top comment will have a two-week reign:
“These two obviously have no idea what sexytalk is supposed to sound like, so they’re just spouting lines from Waiting for Godot. ‘Is she coming tonight?’ ‘I would think so! Does it matter?’ ‘Yes it does … doesn’t it?’ ‘Of course it does! But things change!'” –BigTed
Your runners up are also worthy of extended approbation!
“In the Smith hills, time moves backwards. Marryin’ in panel 1, new beau in 3 — by panel 7 it’s sadly clear that he doesn’t even know her name.” –Downpuppy
“While JJJ was stuck in early 20th-century print media, Cousin Ruth had leaped ahead to mid-90s ’zine culture.” — Lacey Wooton, on Facebook
“So the sound system isn’t working and the crowd is still going wild? I think I’m with Sly and Max on this one: today’s bands just aren’t about the music anymore, man.” –pugfuggly
“Gil’s speech bubble may say, ‘Disappointing True. Truly,’ but his ass is saying, ‘Do these Dockers give my cheeks any goddamned shape?’” –Bill Peschel
“It’s basic math: If you double dose on a finite prescription, you’ll run out of those heavenly pills twice as fast. Don’t be a fool, stay in school!” –Artist formerly known as Ben
“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. Pray to an absent and vengeful deity for fish, and one of those kids is going to cast a fishhook in your neck.” –Chareth Cutestory
“Pfft, Tommy’s faking it. If he were really sick, there’d be a lot more ellipses as he struggled to list his symptoms.” –Doctor Handsome
“The fish are agitated by the vague sexuality of the term ‘humpbacks.’ That sort of stuff is highly unusual in Mark Trail.” –nescio
“‘I require an equivalent quantity of images of Ant-Man!’ is what I’m going to yell from now on whenever go surfing for porn.” –Kibo
“Hey hey hey! Don’t you dare skip the third part of Eat, Shit and Die!” -Vulpius
“Joey, like most human-fly hybrids, must first drool enzymes onto his food in order to dissolve and digest it.” –Dood
