Metapost: BAM! Comment of the week
KAPOW! It’s this week’s top comment.
“I actually genuinely like the smile on Roy’s face in his one panel. My man’s gonna talk a half-hour off from his hell family, and he’s gonna spend it doing what he loves: straight poopin’. Happy Father’s Day, Roy.” –Dan
SHAZAM! It’s the very funny runners up.
“An hour later they bust the door down to find Roy long dead. Tragic, of course, but at least there’s one less to compete for toilet time.” –WLP
“‘Uh-oh‘ is right, Snuffy! It looks like your family members have finally figured out that you’re a worthless sponge who contributes nothing of value to the family. If I were you’d, I’d grab your trusty squirrel gun and head for … well, not the hills because you’re already in the hills. But a less convenient part of the hills.” –Joe Blevins
“Of course, even steam will set off a smoke alarm, in my experience. Um, should I have my smoke alarm checked? You know, for all the sex I hope to have, someday.” –Duke of Earl Grey
“Killer is an ifriti, a spirit of smoke and fire. Excite his passions and look out! He may engulf you in the inferno of his love.” –Bunivasal
“Police helicopters circling over Los Angeles: ‘Once again, that name is spelled M-A-H-L-E-R. This is your last warning…’” –Lorne
“I don’t want to start a war here, but I am anti-excessive sauce and proud of it. Fast food dining should be between one sauce packet and one 10-piece nuggets. Polysaucy ruins families. Don’t dunk that chicken if one sauce cup ain’t fillin’. Eat ’em dry or don’t even try.” –jroggs
“Look Rusty, if Mark knew you were going to enjoy your vacation he never would have loaded you onto a jet-black food truck and driven deep into the jungles of Central America.” –Escape Zeppelin
“I understand the hipster chick wearing sunglasses at a Rocky Horror screening after midnight, but what’s the EMT’s excuse? ‘The victim appears to be DOA,’ he says, as he fumbles with his hands to pack a still-breathing person into a body bag.” –BigTed
“Haha the joke’s on Dr. Dog-man, who wasted 12+ years of his life on higher education in order to acquire the elite skills necessary to diagnose and advise his patients. Cat-man has absolutely no intention of changing his diet, lifestyle, or boxers, probably. He’s just fine, thank you very much, sitting there cross-eyedly waiting for a Vicodin prescription that he will spend Friday filling and then selling to his nephew alley-cat, hopefully in enough time to get rhino-man’s TV out of hock so they can watch the game on Saturday. (Note to self: submit caption: ‘Pluggers have long been known to take a knee during the national anthem’ for illustration: cat-man kneels in front of ancient fuzzy T.V. screen to fiddle with rabbit-ear antennas while rhino-man slumps to the floor from the sofa, hat in hand, patriotic but lightheaded due to repeated plasma donations.)” –Hopester
“I wonder how Thel manages to keep from wincing when her children monumentally stupid things. Maybe the key is distraction, like holding on to a piping hot cookie pan with your bare hands.” –pugfuggly
“Man, I wonder what Crock was asking about that he looks so smug after a drifter living in a cave read him the first hit from Google.” –Bunivasal
“‘You were able to answer all of Crock’s questions, wise sage. Is that from years of study with great scholars?‘ ‘Nah. The little twerp mostly asked about guerilla warfare and killing sycophantic underlings. I gave him a copy of the Small Wars Manual and the complete works of Agatha Christie. You’ll be burning villages to save them in no time. Well, someone will. Not you, exactly. Uh, you’re OK with the taste of bitter almonds, right?’” –Voshkod
“This is the first time I’ve ever seen any attempt by the General to eat solid food, unless a cocktail olive has been inadvertently consumed at some point.” –Rusty
“The second panel of Mark Trail looks like an old banner of the labour movement. What does it signify, the Popular Front of archaeologists and zoologists?” –Ettorre
