Mondays and Fridays

You've felt the same way about people you've had to deal with in some jobs, right?

Just to refresh everyone's memory, it's mid-October in the EH world.  Halloween will be coming soon, and lots of odd-looking characters will be wandering around.  Some of them will be wearing costumes.  Some won't.

I don't recall if I mentioned this, but I did a guest strip for Gwen Patton's webcomic, Jenny Everywhere's Infinite: Quark Time.  There are many different version of Jenny throughout the many dimensions, and one or two may make a cameo appearance here.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Remind me to tell you the story of the naked man and the kitten that wanted a scratching post next time I see you. *evil grin*

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

Why do I get the feeling that when she does reach her limit it would not be wise to be in the blast zone

Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

I don't know, out zinging Zinger without being obscean seems like a proper response to me.  Besides as the fat nerdy kid in school, long befor it was fashionable to be nerdy, she just fufilled a life long fantasy for me.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: Of course, you just know Zinger will be back with trouble!
Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

I've been reading and enjoying these and your Shaenon-filks for a while now. EH is my second most-anticipated comic when I log on each day (after <a href="http://freefall.purrsia.com/"> FreeFall</a>).  I was surprised, and I admit, a bit disappointed to see the new chapter without a verse.

Maybe next June, she should go to Space Camp for a few months, to learn about managing her powers around mundanes.  After all... Summer Mighty, summer 'naut.

Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

ouch

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Now he signs a paycheck for 10 minutes' work, because that's as long as it took her to do it.  That's what you get for showing off.

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

Personally I've always believed that when snarking, obscenity and profanity are the signs of an amateur.

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

To the tune of Black Velvet:

Black panels and we'll make the boss smile

Black panels in a haunted house style

Get a flashlight, Summer, if you please 

Black panels are a breeze!

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Er, typo in "WHAT ARE YOU DONG?"
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Fixed!

Mark Chapman (aardvark86) says:

I think I liked the original version of that line :D

Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says:

"WHAT ARE YOU, DORK?" perhaps?

 

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Oh, the comments I could make...but this is a family comment board...

Good to see you back and posting, Ed.

The Auld Grump (theauldgrump) says:

I dunno, if that's Ken then imagine what his Barbie might look like. Ken is an Evil Henchman who lacks an Evil genious to work for. Either that or the Mad Science gene is only starting to get its meathooks on him.... Has the Tinasky Experiment taken place yet?

I really like the look of the second panel ZAP!ing. :)

The Auld Grump

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

So are we looking at a budding supercriminal?

Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

Could this be Helen and Dave's love child?

Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

Looks like we might some interesting story lines here.  By the way nice work on the fan art on "Bob's Adventures"

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Oh, I see what's coming.  Ken is going to take the villain name "Master Dark", and everyone will constantly be slipping and calling him "Master Dork".  Hilarity and scorched bodies ensue.

Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

It is wonderful that you donated blood, Thank you

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Saw that coming... ^^
gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Not gonna be a superhero?  Aw, yer gonna break Daddy's heart!

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

Are people with superpowers even allowed a career option besides hero or villain?

Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

I think it was established that for several years after he got married Mr. Mighty worked at home depot while the kids were growing up.  Hence him having to start over in a B league super hero team

ALLAN WHITCOMB (svithandi) says:

Low blood sugar, hypoglycemia, will do that too.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Hey, Ed...you alive out there?

ALLAN WHITCOMB (svithandi) says:

Ummm...are you going to let this strip go?

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Ed says not, his RL is just really busy.  He'll be back real soon now, don't worry.

ALLAN WHITCOMB (svithandi) says:

Cool! Thats resonable!

Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

both those links seem to be bad, oh well maybe later, nice closeing line however. 

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

I just tested them now, and they work fine for me ... I'm using Firefox 4.0.1, what browser do you have? 

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Never give your enemy a weapon for which you don't have a counter. Perhaps she would've come out ahead in this exchange:

"...and don't try changing it into wine!"

"Here you go, one Underage Special."

But then, Zinger probably would have had a comeback to that comeback, and escalated from there.  She makes it so hard to turn the other cheek. (No offense meant, Carrie.)

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

Carrie should take that proverb and realize it means even Jesus had limits.  Or maybe she needs to get Old Testament on the bitches ass.

Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

@Chris  She is working here because she went old testament on someone else,  She doesn't need to increase her time there, as satsifying as that might be

Adam (10-0-0-1) says: @Chris: not to get to deep into it but the 7 times 70 statement was in answer to someone asking about forgiving 7 transgressions, personally I always considered it to be an object lesson rather than a literal rule. If you are keeping track well enough to know when someone makes their 491st mistake you did not really forgive the previous 490.
Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

@Ed Gedeon, I am using explorer 8 in windows 7

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

Enh, I'm a pagan and not of the fluffy bunny Wicca variety.  I'd already have her locked in a wicker cage and be dousing her with lighter fluid.

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

Just kidding on that btw.  Am not really psycho.

The Auld Grump (theauldgrump) says:

@ Ed Gedeon - Links work fine for me (Firefox 3.6.18).

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

poke

Carrie Whitaker (auroraket) says:

Everything okay? Kinda worrying to not hear from you for a month.

Andrew Barton (andrewandkatebarton) says:

Also works for me in Firefox 5.0

Mark Chapman (aardvark86) says:

Why can't we bottle this heat and save it for winter when we need it?

I keep thinking the complementary thing during winter, as in how nice the ice water that is currently coming out of my tap would be to have during summer,

Wayne (wayne) says:

This is why I have multiple power adapters for my MacBook Pro!  One lives at my computer desk, the other normally in the living room and that one travels with me.  I used to have three, one lived in my backpack.  Normally when I travel it's just 100 miles for a day trip, and I'm not using my laptop for actual work as I have a Windows desktop in my office, soit's not a huge deal if I forget it.

John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

You can, in fact, bottle the summer heat and save it for winter. This is why coastal areas have more temperate weather than continental areas... heat is being stored in the water in the summer, when it's cooler than the air, and released in the winter, when it's warmer than the air. Icehouses did the reverse, storing the winter cold somewhere well-insulated so that it can be used to cool things in the summer.

I'm not sure I'd want to be the one volunteered to get a heated Summer into a bottle, though.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: Yay, Ed's back!
Michael Lashinsky (mikelinpa) says:

I recognize that big orange monster!  One of my favorite characterx from the old Bugs Bunny cartoons.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Égad. This haunted house may need some playtesting before it's ready for visitors.

Hey, whaddaya wanna bet Ken put in a real, live trapdoor somewhere?
Wayne (wayne) says:

It's nice meeting people in real life that you meet online, my wife found me online about eight yeras ago and we've been married six years now.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: Looks like Ken really *is* a fathead!
Wayne (wayne) says:

Sleep is something that I never seem to get before I have to hit the road.  Case in point, last night: today I have three doctor appointments in two cities, each 100 miles away and 50 miles from each other.  And the Fall semester starts tomorrow, so I can't sleep in tonight.

But that's why Cthulhu invented Starbucks' Frapuccino and podcasts.  And MiFi devices so I can make a little coin while I'm waiting.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Rule #1: Don't feed the trolls.

Rule #2: See Rule #1

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: The thing about people like that is, trying to counter-zing them is *always* a mistake, because they're better at it than you -- they do it all the time, and you're just a differ.
David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: on re-read... "duffer"! Arggh.
gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

That's why I don't bother to counter-zing them.  I either ignore them entirely, or bounce them off a wall until they get the idea that zinging ME is the mistake.

Wayne (wayne) says:

Ah, revenge can be sweet!

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

Is one of those Haunted House monsters Nixon?!  Surely that would be too scary for the tykes!

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

I saw this happen to someone at a college once.  Someone left 5 lbs of liverwurst in a mini-fridge over a break, not knowing the power would be shut off because no one would be there.  When he came back, he opened the fridge to make a sandwich, and this...thing...went for his face.  So he threw a towel over it and chucked it out the window.  To fall 12 stories onto the concrete right behind some poor luckless person.

Thus was born the ultimate onomotopoeia: BLORT!  Followed by painting the person up the back just like Zinger with rotten liverwurst. There was much upchucking.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

@Mary: good eye!

@Gwen: I never sausage a horrible sight!

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Boot to the Head! (October)  I was just re-reading the SH archives and saw that fan-art. :) 

Tyler Wright (tylgar) says:

I think when you're worried about getting hit in the head with the golf ball, you're supposed to yell "Ford!"

Jennifer McGaffey (jjmcgaffey) says:

Nicely done flashback! I went and looked at the previous episode, but you'd covered the pertinent bits in this comic...

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Maybe that's WHY Summer doesn't know more about old movies.

Wayne (wayne) says:

Did you know that the 'friendship' line was recorded post-production?  I don't remember the reasoning behind it, but Claude Raines was off on another film so they just recorded the single line from Bogart.

Chic Geek (chic_geek) says:

Congrats on the book illustration job, Ed! Here's hoping you get many more.

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

Summer doesn't know Casablaca?  This must be remedied.  Also I'm surprised how much I've come to like her boss.  He seemed a bit slimy at first but he's turned out surprisingly reasonable.  His wife seems nice too.  I wonder how they wound up with such a rotten daughter.

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Ben's first (notable) encounter with Summer involved[a href=http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=164620] vandalism and walking away with some expensive merchandise.[/a]

The second involved her learning a new four-letter word... and[a href=http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=176483] acting like a four-year-old with it[/a].

I imagine he's making a reasonable attempt to get over those first impressions.

P.S. I'm trying BBcode for the links.  I apologize if they come out looking like heck.

Mark Chapman (aardvark86) says:

Saint Francis University... St Francis University ... nope, can't see it :-)

Does that mean shame on Jane as well, or do moms get an exemption?

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

I must be suffering from ossification of the intellect too...I can't see it either. :/

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

... I didn't see it in the comic, but Mark's comment left me enough of a clue that I think I get it.  Up til 'then, all I could come up with was (ahem, pardon my language) Women's Tennis Faculty?

Christopher Preece (melaszepheos) says:

S(hut) the F U(p), I believe?

Took me nearly a full minute. Congratulations to you for your word play.

Oh yeah, and I've been reading your comic for like three years now and only just posted a comment. Sorry, I didn't have anything else to say until now. But now I'm here I'll add that it's a brilliant read this.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: Congrats on the book, Ed! So, when you get a side job, Summer gets one too? ;-)
Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

I figured it out within seconds.  I guess I have an unusually dirty mind.  And no shame so your admonition is wasted on me.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: Carrie is so easy to embarrass!
gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Still makes me want to sing "Take me out to the ball game" whenever she does stuff like that. She keeps doing that sort of thing she's going to wind up with a rhyming hero name that she won't like. Just sayin'.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: If she keeps doing that sort of thing, the nunnery's gonna assign her as a schoolteacher! ("I don't need no stinkin' ruler!")
Christopher Smith (wallaroo) says:

I think Zinger struck a nerve when

it came to her being nasty to her

mom AND Carrie's mom.

 

I think Zinger won't get away with THIS.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Jane isn't Carrie's mom, she's Summer's mom.  Carrie's parents are divorced, she just lives with her father.

More info on Carrie's mother ... will come eventually.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Should be interesting... I take it this wasn't exactly in confidence, but it's still unsettling to see Carrie retelling it so casually....

Leo Spitz (spitls) says:

You know, something I'm curious about, does Carrie ever have problems with hair getting in her eyes?

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

Not surprised at all.  I've met some Christians like Carrie.  Alas, all too few.

Christopher Smith (wallaroo) says:

Yeah, we need more people like Carrie.

 

In short, we need more humble Christians,

not the holier-than-thou ones.

Avilyn (avilyn) says:

Happy Holidays, Ed!

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

Happy Solstice Celebration of Your Choice  and a Merry New Year.

And I guess no you weren't :(

Wayne (wayne) says:

HNY, Ed!  I'm glad your 2011 was good, I have no complaints about mine: I'm still employed, still married, my car is paid off, and my health didn't decline.  I color that a win.

Looking forward to your strip and continued Narbonic/Skin Horse filks!

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: To quote a line from Pokemon that I believe fits here, "Oi, oi, oi."
gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Ken is going to end up squashed into a tuna can and launched into orbit if he isn't careful.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Gwen:  Yay, his first space station!

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

Awww, baby Carrie is the cutest little bundle of hair.  She wouldn't happen to have a cousin named Itt, would she?

Mark Chapman (aardvark86) says:

Hah, I should have read today's strip before commenting on the previous one, and it's nice to see Terra again too, who seems to be coping with her third externally imposed motherhood. I also presume we have Web Comic Time http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WebComicTime to thank for the characters obviously not being 9 years older.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Gotta watch out for those Girl Scouts!

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Time to regale small child with the dangers of chronic hepatotoxins, uric acid accumulation, and de novo lipigenesis! That sugar stuff'll KILL ya! Mwah hah hahhhh! *breaking out charts showing Krebs Cycle...*

"Eaters of the world arise! You have nothing to lose but your cookies!" -- Hawkeye Pierce, "Adam's Ribs"

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

@Leo:  Presumably she could just move it away.
