Mondays and Fridays

A new chapter, and things are looking verse already.

I had an extra project this week.  While reading Michael Terracciano's Dominic Deegan, I saw that he mentioned the Web-Comics Auction for the Gulf Coast.  This is an event where several webcomic artists are contributing original works of art, which will be auctioned off.  The money raised will be used to help people and wildlife affected by the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.  If you follow the link, you just might see a familiar name ...

This is for a great cause, and some excellent artists are contributing (better than my little chicken scratches, I can tell you).  Check out the site, check out the charity that they're donating the money to, then come back and bid on some of the pieces.  You'll be helping a good cause, and getting some nice artwork in return.

Well, off to enjoy the holiday weekend here in the USA.  A cookout today, a canoe trip tomorrow.  Busy, busy, busy.  You have a great weekend, too.

Tyler Wright (tylgar) says:

Re: the comic- Yeah, try being self-employed, they're even worse.  Plus much, MUCH harder to figure out.

Diane Castle (deecee) says:

Caliban AND Hanners?  This cannot end well.  :-)

Adam (10-0-0-1) says: if this leads to a crossover with QC I will be very happy and quite amused.
The Auld Grump (theauldgrump) says:

Caliban? What are YOU doing here?! (Hides, just in case Mell is somewhere around.)


The Auld Grump

Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says:

And the mop is from Dead Winter, right?

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

I love the customer's double-take in the background!

Michael McLawhorn (mhoram) says:

I do wish people realized that edible food, paved roads, running water, police and fire protection, etc, etc are not brought by the magic urban gift fairy, but paid for by someone.  


Americans (and I am one) are such spoiled whiny brats about taxes.

Jennifer McGaffey (jjmcgaffey) says:

Hanners is kind of picky. But given what's she's drunk at Coffee of Doom, I wonder if Caliban knows how to run the coffee machine either...

Edwin Quantrall (reynard) says:

@ Tiff: Alas, no. Lizzie uses a slightly different style of mop.

@ David: Yeah, Hanners is adorable when she's flustered.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

I dunno, I think you shortened that long story pretty well....

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Yeah. I'd have called it a very short story, in fact.
gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

I'd call it a feghoot with a history.

Thanks for the mention, Ed!  Next page is up, and it was good seeing you over the weekend!

nathaniel miller (skavensrule) says:

The Drawing arrived Friday.  Once I have the chance to get it framed I will decide where to hang it.  Looks beutiful in person.

Michael Lewinger (mikikiki) says:

Love your work, going home now after spending the last hour having fun in your story !

Tim Whitcomb (timothy) says:


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

It's a reference to "Eve Of Destruction" by Barry McGuire (anti-war protest song from the 1960's).

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

my meager efforts:

The arcade roof, it needs repairing;
Jerk-jocks crashing, people staring,
You're proud of Carrie's shot, but I'm despairing
You see that parking lot, there's people there less caring

Get some Tang and
Fly over and over and over that roof, you goof
Ah, you know you should
I hope you're good
At construction!


(When he said "Eva", my first thought was Neon Genesis Evangelion... <_<)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

@queenofcapes: For a "meager effort" that was pretty darned good!  Thanks!

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Yay! Shaenon!
Tyler Wright (tylgar) says:

Heh, I thought of Evangelion at first, too.

Sam Daniel (samhdaniel) says:

It's very appropriate: those energy-efficient bulbs get bright very slowly, just like her idea....

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

To the tune of <a href=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1zSYo-1b1A>Spot's theme song</a>


Thump, Thump!  Affable Thump,

He's nice but kinda slow just like Forest Gump

If you need a charming bloke

Who just can't get a joke

There's Thump, Thump, Thump!

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

Aww, that's just cold!


To the tune of Goodnight Irene:


She helped me to take out the garbage,

It turns out we make a great team!

But now she cannot be my girlfriend

Because she's only fifteen!


Carrie Goodbye,  Carrie Goodbye!

Goodbye Carrie, Goodbye Carrie

Too bad you're just fifteen!


(Or is Thump the younger one?)

Sean Duggan (duggansc) says: I find myself wondering if he used the formula from http://www.xkcd.com/314/
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says:

Mmm... Gavotte's Angels - Skin Horse.

And if I'm not mistaken, the redhead is Antimony Carter - Gunnerkrigg Court.


Once in Indiana (near Terre Haute) I ate at a restaurant run by nuns. In the past, it had been a truck stop. In the men's room, there was still a condom dispenser, but the nuns had painted it over several times in the same color as the wall.

The Auld Grump (theauldgrump) says:

You have six pence to lend, and six pence to spend, and six pence to take home to your wife? (Poor wife.)


Now I've got a loverly bunch of coconuts (coconuts!). See them standing all within a row! I said unto me wife, she's the apple of me life, roll 'em, roll 'em, roll 'em, penny a pitch!


The Auld Grump, hmm, do ya think that Caliban's gonna notice the total change of decor?

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Um....????
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says:

867-5309 :-) heh. That was almost my real phone number when I moved to Maryland in 1981 - (768-5409). Don't call it now. It's not me anymore.

I love the dialog-in-the-mirror effect.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

I know CLR takes off one heck of a lot of soap scum and calcium deposits, but I didn't know it could change the style of bathroom fixtures.  If I'd know that, I wouldn't have paid those contractors.

Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says:

CLR? I think it was CGV.



(cow goes Voom!)

E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

So that's what's under Little Cow Z's... horns? head?

Yeah! That's what'll make any webcomic instantly popular! Cows with hats!

E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

Only three minutes to go? You're good at calculating, guy!

E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

Maybe the swirly-bulb just means that she's loopy.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Auld Grump:  He noticed.

Gwen:  Not to mention adding *new* furniture!  And banishing Cthuloid horrors from the plumbing....

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Yay!  Say hi to home for me!

Mark Chapman (aardvark86) says:

Hi Ed, I'm sorry to hear about your continuing job crisis, but really enjoying your comic, which I found thanks to the Notable Sci Fi Webcomics page http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NotableSciFiWebcomics of TV Tropes. Imagine my delight that you are also the crackerjack plotline filker of Skin Horse renown :)

Mark Chapman (aardvark86) says:

PS, love Carrie's big shocked eyes (and Summer's "big shocked" Nerd Glasses) in the last frame :-)

Adam (10-0-0-1) says: the simple answer is that it is his stepmother, but that is far to simple and boring for this comic.
E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

I dub her... Cassandra!

Adam (10-0-0-1) says: here is hoping one of those maybes turns out to be a yes, I can only imagine how frustrating this has to be.
E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

Wait. His dad married someone younger than him?

Right after his real mom died from childbirth?

Thump's dad married a negative-one-year-old?

*brain short-circuiting faster than Thump's in a division problem*

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

No, Ben didn't marry his second wife until Thump was 19 years old.  Second wife (Jintara) was 18, and little girl was born about a year later.

(This message brought to you by The Continuity Fairy.)

William Chamberlin (valandar) says:

"Some years later", ET.

Mark Chapman (aardvark86) says:

E.T., you seem to have missed the crucial phrase "some years later" :) It's still a bit weird that his dad re-married to someone younger than Thump, but I gather not unheard of.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

It was either that, or buy a red sportscar.  I guess his dad didn't like red sportscars.

E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

Whoops. I feel stupid now.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: ..... oh dear.
chic geek (onechicgeek) says:

Hee! I like the compress the trash to flick at obnoxious people much better thatn superman's coal into diamond schtick. Well, okay...diamonds would be nice, but not as funny. And the fist bump was just right.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: [snicker]
chic geek (onechicgeek) says:

Good luck with the job interview!

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

The same state?  *faints*

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Well, it's an improvement over months and months between visits home...

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

Dude, your age has 10 digits?  That is Oooooold! D:

E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

It's okay. Forty-/fifty-/sixty-/-three/-seven/-eight  isn't that bad. Relatively speaking, I've heard worse. Whatever age it is.

Brian McCloud (mauvecloud) says:

At least we don't seem to be getting into "I'm My Own Grandpa" territory yet.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Looking back now, I'm a little confused.  Hanners shouldn't notice Ima's species because of the Adams field, but then what was she reacting to yesterday, before she'd even had the presumably-evil coffee?

Sean Duggan (duggansc) says: Ah, the carpet tax...
