Let’s jump right into this week’s COTW, y’all!

“Who’s eating arepas & bandeja paisa?/ And thinks this chica quiere bailar?/ Who’s gonna be a drug lord’s hostage?/ Everyone knows it’s Wilbur! [To the tune of The Association’s ‘Windy,’ of course.]” –Janna, on Twitter

The runners up are also hilarious!

“His rule for surviving prison seems to be: Say every last thought that comes into your head. There are no exceptions to this rule.” –Joe Blevins

“Of course, when your mom and I were young and we used to have threesomes, that was the original ‘Dagwood sandwich.’ True story! Wait, son, come back — this is your ‘birds and bees and sandwiches’ talk. Don’t you want to hear where I hid the salami? No, you can’t call Child Protective Services about this — you’re, like, 83!” –BigTed

That looks like an outtake from a trial-run Seinfeld newspaper strip from 1996.” –the phantom king, on Twitter

“And by ‘the holidays,’ I mean Christmas. Because let’s face it, Halloween is Satanic and Thanksgiving is a colonialist charade.” –Peanut Gallery

“‘Even you have to admit, Dad, that God is quite an artist,’ Pam said, standing in front of a solid azure background decorated with lazy cross-hatching.” –Spunky The Wonder Squid

“You know, while people make a big deal about Mark Trail’s fist of justice, one cannot underestimate his ability to bore people to death.” –Dood

“Welp, you referred to Mark as ‘Trail.’ Get ready for a vortex of fists, Baldy.” –Kevin On Earth

“If Rick Soto wants to be a dreamy pop singer, he’s gonna need some fine tuning on that nose.” –Rusty

“Although, to be honest, ‘scheme to defraud the customer out of $100’ is probably the most common way the Blondie core reader demographic acquires apps.” –Brian M

“I’m really sorry that we don’t get to see the image of Rick Soto singing earnestly into a spoon in the middle of what looks like the observation deck at the CN tower, I guess?” –pugfuggly

“The stripes on Judge Parker (Senior)’s head are just so perfect. He looks like a tube of Aquafresh toothpaste. You just want to squeeze him until all his hair extrudes, black and white stripes, a majestic zebra mane. And then just keep squeezing him until he shuts up and goes away forever.” –Voshkod

“I can almost believe in the pairing of Fabianna and Wilbur, but I cannot accept the inattention to detail. Forthwith: a) Fabianna has ‘jiggle’ lines drawn around all the body parts that can possibly jiggle except for her breasts and b) it’s totally unrealistic for Wilbur NOT to be looking at her breasts (especially when she has thrown her head back (in ecstacy?) and he would not have to worry about her noticing he is looking at her breasts). If I can’t believe in Fabianna’s breasts, what can I believe in?” –The Mighty Captain E

“Cayla wears number 143 because that’s her place on Les’s list of priorities.” –Little Blue Bicycle

“Choose wisely, Jeffy. ‘Son of Barfy’ would be a ridiculous serial killer name. You want headlines you won’t be embarrassed to paste in your scrapbook.” –Charles Nelson,Really!

“You gotta admit, that’s a lot of headflesh between Jeffy’s frontal cortex and his hands, so it’s understandable that some signals might get a little backed up.” –Vulcan With a Mullet

LOS ANGELES PEOPLE! Come to The Clubhouse in Los Feliz tonight to enjoy the live comedy show I produce and perform in, The Internet Read Aloud! You will in no way regret it! Here’s the Facebook event.

ALL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE! Please enjoy your comment of the week!

“Once a plugger forms a mental image of Miss Kitty nude, nothing else will satisfy his carnal needs.” –Left Nut

Please also enjoy your hilarious runners up!

“I call bullshit. No way does that family have books that thick.” –Ruth McIlhenny, on Facebook

“Yeah, I don’t blame you for not wanting to go back to your house. It’s a dump compared this palace I’ve got here. We have horses, Rand, actual goddamned horses. What’ve you got? A CRT television and a pile of decapitated teddy bears? Sad. Anyway, you were saying something about your … wife, I think it was? Continue.” –Joe Blevins

“Actually, if Wilbur’s finding love in Colombia, then I can only hope this means he’s wandered into one of Gabriel García Márquez’s magical realist masterpieces. Fingers crossed he either indulges in a series of surreal and deeply taboo sexual trysts that metaphorically symbolize neo-colonialism in South America, or gets cholera.” –Schroduck

“Iris reminds me of what it was like to be young and in love, when I was so nervous about calling my special someone on the phone that I, too, would bite chunks out of a cylinder of frozen concentrated orange juice to calm myself.” –DaveInPgh

Today’s strip would actually be funny if it turned out it’s taking place when Marvin is, say, 15.” –BigTed

“Thank goodness they skipped all the boring stuff where Wilbur went to an exotic foreign location, met a fascinating person, and fell in love with her. All we want to see is him breaking the news to Iris over Skype.” –Peanut Gallery

“You’re right, I’m deteriorating quickly! Good thing I brought an army of goons. It will ease my passing to watch them tear your limbs off and consume them in front of you as you lay screaming. ” –Hogen the Mogen

“I think writing the promotional banner in Lisa’s own blood (which Les keeps in a jar on his mantel) is a little over the top.” –Tom the Sailor Man

“So, anyway, this is the first yard work Leroy’s done in months, so the threesome’s going to have to wait.” –RogerBW

“Good ol’ South Nakota U.” –Theresa C., on Twitter

‘Did you wash your hands before dinner, Ditto?’ ‘Yes, and I can prove it. [Empties white bag full of severed hands on the dinner table.] See, mother! See how all my hands glisten as if covered in the morning dew? I spent hours washing them, cleaning gently under the fingernails, just so you could see how clean my hands are! At least, those hands. These hands, these accursed hands at the ends of my arms, are so soiled with brutality that they’ll never come clean. [Scene from Quentin Tarantino’s MacDitto]’” –Voshkod

“The bald guy is taking this whole thing pretty hard. I think we are actually seeing a superhero origin story unfold. Soon, he will become ‘The Authenticator’ and dedicate his life to stopping counterfeiters. By ‘soon,’ I mean August 2019.” –Drew Funk

‘What sort of person would try to cheat folks by selling forgeries, anyhow?’ Oh, oh, I know this one! The answer’s ‘forgers’, right? Pick me, teacher, pick me!” –Just John

GUYS, I have to apologize, I know I have been behind on contacting people who gave to the fundraiser to thank them and get them their tote bag — it’s been a week, lemme tell you. You are all lovely, patient people, and I’ll be in touch next week, I promise!

Meanwhile, it’s that time of the month again, that time being a week before the first Friday of next month, and that means I get to remind you that my live LA comedy show, The Internet Read Aloud, is happening next week, and it’s gonna be hilarious!

Check out the Facebook event, if you know what’s good for you!

What’s good for everyone, of course, is the comment of the week:

CARROT MUFFINS: NOT EVEN ONCE” –Windier E. Megatons, on Twitter

The runners up? Also truly great!

“Hell is dealing with Mary Worth while hungover.” –Jon Bennett, on Facebook

“The dog man of Pluggers must to go to dangerous lengths to find a portion of the utility pole that hasn’t been scent-marked by his fellows.” –Naked Bunny with a Whip

“I don’t think Crankshaft will find it that hard to choose a side. ‘Hey, kids! Let me drive you to school in my Taxi Scab!’” –Peanut Gallery

“So is Snuffy listing the various indicators of canine unhealth just for kicks, or is he building up to ‘…so what I’m sayin’ is, nobody would miss that dog an’ I ain’t been able to steal a chicken fer weeks.’” –Ekudamram

“[black and white images of Cookie moving through a parade crowd] What it all comes down to / Is that everything is going to be quite alright / ‘Cause I’ve got pork chops in my pocket / And shoulder hair that smells like cigarettes” –Dan

“Sure, Spidey, tell the woman who was saving your life for a few weeks to ‘Stay put’ while you go grab the guy who is cleverly managing to use the monster’s strength to break his chains. Looking forward to see how you take all the credit!” –matt w

“How is Honeymoon (really? Honeymoon?) going to be a cop when she appears to be a walking EMP generator. Every time her stupid antenna spark, she’ll kill radio comms. ‘This is Unit 10… [squelch] we have two… [squeal] with heavy weap… [crackle] at the [static] … up now!’ Of course, on the plus side, she’s her own taser.” –Voshkod

“The kid has a human on his leash, doesn’t he?” –nescio

“Social status in Hootin’ Holler is based on the quality of the trash your children play with.” –TheDiva

“Blondie has offered the daily sacrifice to Dagwood’s appetite. Will she be back before he finishes it and devours their children to satisfy the dark, cold void within him? Tune in Monday to find out!” –Dread

“‘I will come home to you and Charlotte,’ she says menacingly.” –Left Nut
