Fridays and Mondays
Dave III (dave_iii) says: Been there. On both sides.-
Karen & Bill Drastal (karetoons) says: HAHAHA Me too...
Dave III (dave_iii) says:

Looks good! The shading looks a tad off-- Beth looks like she's lit from a lamp behind the camera while Chloe seems as if she's lit from the right... but otherwise the colors really add to the strip.

I found this strip yesterday off the Webcomics Nation RSS, and I am seriously enjoying it. Very much looking forward to seeing where this goes. ^_^

(Now to get some coffee for myself... *yawn* ^_^)

Dave III (dave_iii) says: Sounds about right... as a matter of fact, that's almost my exact same list for today... (And you notice what I'm doing instead of them...) ^_^
Karen & Bill Drastal (karetoons) says: HAHAHAHA True :) I'm probably going to do the same thing tonight when I get home :)
Dave III (dave_iii) says: Get used to it, kiddo. ^_^
Dave III (dave_iii) says: Ah, collector's mania... how well I know that familiar feeling.... ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Ahhh ... coffee ... where would we be without thee? (Still asleep in bed, obviously.)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

I used to be the same way about Hot Wheels cars ... had to have 'em all.

And Karen, thanks for peeking at my little scribble as well.


Dave III (dave_iii) says: Sweet... comfy.... carpet..... Zzzzz........ ^_^
Dave III (dave_iii) says: The good news is, she got out of doing what ever it was he was gonna ask... ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Is there a "Chicken Soup For The Cartoon Soul" book?  Actually it's not the cartoon soul that needs help so much as the cartoon body. 
Dave III (dave_iii) says: See, that's actually funny. It's not a card one can play often, but used judiciously, it's quite clever. ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

I.O.U. one comment.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: I h8 txt msgs. 
Karen & Bill Drastal (karetoons) says: Roflmao!
Dave III (dave_iii) says:

Glad to do it! Like I said before, it's a cute comic, and I see great things in the future.


You'd think Beth would'a seen this coming, though... ^_^

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Someday, I'll be able to go to conventions.  Until then, I'm stuck at home, being unconventional.

Dave III (dave_iii) says:

Light weight... ^_^

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: I gotta admit, *I'm* jealous ...
Dave III (dave_iii) says: To The Snoopy Booth!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

All the Snoopy plushies look the same ... no Joe Cool?  No flying ace?  No world-famous check-out clerk?  Oh well, I guess you have a limited budget when you're working for peanu*arrrgh*, I'm sorry, even I can't stoop to that punch line.


Dave III (dave_iii) says: *Cue Angelic Choir*
Karen & Bill Drastal (karetoons) says: Ooooohhhh...baZing! But that's more of the glory of it....multiple Snoopys...all in one place...a plethora of Snoopys if you will....
Dave III (dave_iii) says: Oh, this should be fun... ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Eyeshadow ... lots of eyeshadow.

Lots and lots and LOTS of eyeshadow.

Who know what evil lurks on the faces of women?  The EyeShadow knows ... meh heh heh heh heh heh ...


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Apparently, when cartoonists suffer, the characters experience time travel as well ... in the second panel, Beth is suddenly 7 years old.

You *complain* about going to conventions??  I'm stuck at work 5 days a week ... waitaminit, I was laid off for two weeks ... I *complain* about going to work??

Dave III (dave_iii) says: Actually... there's a charm in the sketched characters... you might be able to develop that. ^_^
Karen & Bill Drastal (karetoons) says:

Well that's also the problem...I work 5 days a week as well but every extra moment goes towards this comic strip, making samplers, keeping up websites, and freelance work...so juggling it to take first 4 days off for comic con and then another one yesterday for Siggraph has really gotten me going batty.  

Actually in the second panel she's putting her head down and towards us...kind of like my news caster in


but not as extreme.  

Check it out 

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: OK then, I get to wear my argyle socks and saddle shoes!  Sweeeeet!
Dave III (dave_iii) says: It's the simple pleasures that make life worth living. ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Sparkly twinkly eyes! Wheeeeeeeeee!
Dave III (dave_iii) says: There's no winning against someone determined to be a Mom. ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

OK, the sordid truth comes out ... Beth's mom has no feet, just wheels!  And yes, she sounds just like all my aunts & cousins ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

You actually get a real job doing real animation?  Yay for you!  (*singing*) Tell us more, tell us more!  (CGI or hand-drawn?)  Tell us more, tell us more!  (When's it gonna be on?)

Hope you survive the week!

Dave III (dave_iii) says: See, now, THAT (as they say) is made of awesome. You're like an anthroplogist who went native. ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: I'm sorry, what did you say?  I was distracted by the huge box of candy.   Caaaaandyyyyyyy ....
Dave III (dave_iii) says: For such a wacky individual Chloe's a bit of a literalist... either that or she's got a much more guilty conscience than she lets on... ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Methuselah’s Diet


Methuselah ate what he found on his plate,
    And never, as people do now,
Did he note the amount of the calorie count.
    He ate it because it was chow.

He wasn’t disturbed as at dinner he sat,
    Devouring a roast or a pie,
To think it was lacking in granular fat
    Or a couple of vitamins shy.

He cheerfully chewed each species of food,
    Unmindful of troubles or fears
Lest his health might be hurt by some fancy dessert,
    And he lived over 900 years!


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

True story: an old girlfriend of mine used to take Dexatrim.  She quit when one of her co-workers pointed out to her that she was turning all the pennies in the cash register face-up.


Dave III (dave_iii) says: Pah. Chloe has the right idea, eat what makes sense.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

I'm ready to make my body complain mildly as I push it to oh, say, one standard deviation beyond the median.  (We didn't get into "limits" until we did calculus, and I was better at statistics anyway.)

I used to go to a gym.  Now I just fix up my house.  The difference is, the house repairs cost more.


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

I will e-mail you some e-chicken e-soup.


Dave III (dave_iii) says: And Sisyphus crests the mountian... ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Speaking of enduring weather -- I've lived in several parts of the country.  As a computer programmer working on contract, I have to take work where I can find it.  A few years ago, after a long dry spell, a good-paying job came up -- in El Paso during the summer.  And as soon as I finished that job, my next one was in Detroit all winter.

Where will my next job take me?  With my luck, probably the Gulf Coast during the height of hurricane season.


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Adventures in tire repair?  Let me guess ... you got a flat tire, and on the way to get it fixed you got another flat tire ... and then you couldn't post a strip because ... (wait for it) ... you were TWO TIRED. 

p.s. bwahahahahahahahahahahaha


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Ditto hooray for Six Flags!  The grandkids are getting old enough that we can take them soon, I hope!  Chloe, ya big baby, get your hands up!


Dave III (dave_iii) says: Yeah...? What's your point? ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Hey, inertia takes talent, y'know ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Awww ... *blush*
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

You ... you have a *job*??  Isn't that against the Starving Artist Code?  Then again, I've been job hunting the last couple of weeks and actually drawn less ...

Keep up the strip as long as you can ... we're all pullin' for ya!

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Is there such a thing as a "mad artist" ... you know, the artistic equivalent of a mad scientist?  "Those fools at the Art Institute!  They laughed at me!  The laughed at my non-traditional composition and experimental technique!  But I'll show them!  I'll show them all!  BWAHAhahahahahahahaaaa!"

Now I have a mental image of Picasso ranting like this from a rooftop in Paris.  *sigh* It's not easy being insane.

Dave III (dave_iii) says: Yes,it is possible, though usually the do things like painting by throwing the entire contents of a paint can into the exhaust plume of a jet engine or trying to turn entire office blocks pink, that kind of thing.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

I don't miss taking US 31 through the north side of Indy either ... although Chicagoland traffic was the worst.  The D*mn Ryan ... er, Dan Ryan Expressway is permanently under repair, and getting out of the city on a Friday evening can take up to two hours.

What new adventures in commuting will my new job bring?  Only time will tell ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Now is when you need to add a clickable button on the last panel ... which would trigger a .wav file of "Love Is A Many-Splendored Thing" ...
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

I was gonna get another comic done myself ... got all my drawing stuff together ... and left it on the living room sofa when I took off Saturday morning.  Arg.

Hooray for jobs!

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Hmm ... is this "playing hard to get", or "just plain silly"?  Knowing Chloe, my bet is for the latter.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

OK, so right now the cute guy thinks Beth is a lunatic ... so she invites him over to watch the alien autopsy laserdisk ... so then he'll *know* she's a lunatic.


Dave III (dave_iii) says: I'd have bought one. I'd need to get a laserdisk player at some point, but hey.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

When you're in love, your heart speeds up -- but your brain shuts down.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Look out!  It's the attack of the WERE-SPIDER!! A few more bites (well maybe a few dozen) and you shall become a minion under his thrall, forced to wander the night in serrch of victims.  "The bug!  The bug is the life!"

I'd invest in some bug spray & sticky traps ... and maybe spray some repellent on yourself before you go to bed.  (Do they make "Deep Sleep OFF"?)

Dave III (dave_iii) says: Maybe you're delicious.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Cool! Let's see ... it's a polar bear in a snowstorm? A selection of fabric swatches for bridal gowns?  A close-up of the Pillsbury Doughboy?

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Lynda Carter in her Wonder Woman costume ... *sigh*
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Waitaminit ... how did Chloe get to be first in line if she camped out a mere ONE day in advance?  Or did you just not feel like drawing the other 327 people camping out in front of her?

Your beer is getting "drunken"?  You should have some "stewed" prunes and "pickled" onions to go with that.  (Heeee, me so funny ...)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Would you call Chloe's attitude in the last panel "Rage Against The Machine"?  (The machine in this case being the XBox.)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Ah, poor Chloe ... forced to live in a cruel, cruel world that demands she do unnatural things, like "plan ahead more than 30 minutes".
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Someone needs to invent an "Extreme Sports" version of Yahtzee.  And it must involve explosives.

Because I said so, that's why.

Dave III (dave_iii) says:

Try "Mille Bornes". Best card game evar. ^_^


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: But wait -- they're girls, so wouldn't they be ... um ... "Gloomy Gussies"?  (My cat Gussie just gave me a dirty look.)
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Guitar Hero?  Ms. Pac-Man?  Mario Party?  ... I guess there's just no pleasing some people.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: It's ... an explosion in a Pepto-Bismol factory?  Barbie's perfect world?  The Gay Pride emblem for squares?  (See, 'cause the Gay Pride symbol is a triangle, and ... oh, never mind, that was a lame joke.  Sorry.)
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Last week, I broke a rule while drawing.  It was my favorite 16-inch rule too.  I couldn't fix it; I had to go buy a new rule.

I had pizza and donuts for dinner.  Yum.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Nothing makes the palms sweat like your supervisor dropping something on your desk and saying "no rush!"

Why doesn't Office Max carry bazookas?

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: I haven't had coffee yet and I have no idea what this is about.  My ignorance is award-winning.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Yay!  We missed you!  And hooray for baby also!


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Beth should give Chloe a brand-new pencil, then hide the sharpener.  *mwahahahaha...*
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Hi!  I'm Ed!  This is a comment!  My comments are just plain boring!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Oh no!  It's "The Pirates of Pencils"!

I am the very model of a modern web cartoonist ... my dialog is clever and my artwork is the looniest ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Everybody sing along ...

"(Let's do the Crash!) Let's do the Christmas Crash!

(The Christmas Crash!) And it's a North Pole smash!

(We'll do the Crash!) As Rudolph's nose goes flash!

(He does the Crash!) He does the Christmas Crash!"

... with many many apologies to Bobby "Boris" Pickett


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Waitaminit ... wasn't Beth a superhero at one point?  She will save the day with her amazing powers of ... what?  Salesmanship?  She'll sell them an alien autopsy laserdisk ... and laserdisk player ... and TV ... and electrical generator ... and fuel ... and by then they'll be so deep in hock she'll own the ship!  Woohoo!  Beth the pirate!
Dave III (dave_iii) says: Oh My. ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: (singing to the tune of "Beat It") Take it!  Take it!  There's no way that you can fake it!  Draw funny pictures ... write funny words ... making web comics is for the birds ... just take it!  Take it take it take it! (insert guitar solo here)
Dave III (dave_iii) says: I hate it when sheep try to steal my soul. It's just so rude. ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: My thoughts are wooly ... I only have eyes for ewe ...
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Aha!  This creature obviously comes from Sheepkill Pond, New Jersey (yes, that's a real place ... if ya can't trust Google, who can ya trust, huh?)
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

How many sheep are on my bed?  Let's see ... one zzzzzzzzzzz .....

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Doesn't Beth know that, for an animal that makes wool, being called a "cotton" swab is a deadly insult?  This is the start of a vendetta that will last for generations ...
Dave III (dave_iii) says: AWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ^_^
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

"Deep within all God's creature's lies the uncontrollable urge to PUNT!" -- Snoopy

The Mad Punter lives! bwahahahahaha!


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Those eyes!  Those ... eyes ... can't ... look away ... love ... sheep ... I love the sheep ... I love the sheep ... I worship the sheep ... Sheep is Master must obey baaaaaaaaaaa ...

Dave III (dave_iii) says:

He's coming RIGHT FOR US!!!!! AAAAHHHH!!!!!!!

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Sheep has the power to *cloud* your mind ... I can feel it sapping my wool^H^H^H^H will ...
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Hooray for paranoid delusions!  They make life worth living!

"More or less everything I've done for the past six years has been designed to mess with your mind.  ... you weren't paranoid after all."  (NARBONIC by Shaenon Garrity, Sept 7 2006)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Chloe!  For shame!  Thou shalt not mock the Java!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

"When Cranberries Attack" --- tonight at 9, only on Vegetable Planet!  (Followed by an all-new "Ugly Beta Carotene").

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Has that guy changed his name to "Maitre Chief"? 

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Sheep in a box!  Every home should have one ... (insert screechy violins from "Psycho" here)
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

In the last panel ... a sleepy sheepy?  What did he do, count the cast members?  "One ... two ... zzzzzz ..."

Sheep's secret plan is to get Chloe elected President ... but she'll just be a figurehead while he secretly runs everything from behind the scenes ... "SHEEP FOR VEEP"!


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Be one with the traffic ... and when you get flattened between two semis, you can be one with the pavement.

I know this is all Sheepy's fault somehow ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

All problems are solved with duct tape!

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

The Aunt goes marching one by one!  Hurrah!  Hurrah!

Congrats to your sister and baby girl niece ... spoiling the little ones is such fun!  You get to buy her all the stuff Mom and Dad say they can't have ... mwahahahahaha!

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Ah, brave, brave Chloe ... throwing herself at a live grenade -- er, live cake -- hmmm, it *is* a live cake, isn't it?  Anyway, props to Chloe for protecting her friend Beth.

I would say "That cake is toast", but actually toast is much drier.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

My admiration of Chloe just went up several degrees.  Of course, if she really wanted to be cruel, that cake would die a slow agonizing death over several days.  Chloe's just trying to make it quick and merciful ... right?  (That's her story and she's stickin' to it ...)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Sleep? I'm a computer programmer!  With project deadlines and a home to try and fix up so I can sell it and books to read and comics to draw and other comics to read and make sarcastic comments about which!  SLEEP??!?!?

Yes, I need some.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: How can you say no to a girl in pink fuzzy slippers and a Ninja Turtle shirt?  I suppose if I were younger, I'd be a WoW junkie (a "Wowie"?).
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Why has the person who invented the mocha latte not been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize?  Coffee *and* chocolate?? Can we say "Paradise on Earth" here?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Don't worry, Prof., we hate you too.  (singing) Can you feel the hate tonight....?


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Silly Sheepy, Trix are for ... no, wait, that punchline doesn't work.  Now if Sheepy were a baby goat instead ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: OMG!  They killed Beth!  You #$@#% ! (OK, I didn't get it.) 
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Windows Plutonium!


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Well, she could try living with a couple of mad inventors, a roommate who turns into a camel, a witch, an alien, a hyperactive ferret, and a psychotic killer lop-eared rabbit.  Naw, then she'd need something stronger (and less legal) than beer ...


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: To steal a line from another comic, "can" and "should" are two different words, remember.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

This is why I love Chloe.  When life gives you lemons, hug a sheepy.

We need some lolsheep cartoons.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Nom nom nom nom nom nom!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

They must be playing at Lamb-Beau Field ... bwahahahaha ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: "Thank you; we're glad you FLU with us today!"
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Those of you in the wing exit rows might want to consider jumping for it now ... your chances are marginally better than if you stay aboard.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Now, why hasn't Starbucks picked up on this idea?  Beerspresso?  Beeruccino?  Mocha birra?  Sounds like a million-dollar idea to me ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Do you want a McBeerBurger with that?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Oh, come on now!  You're telling me Sheepy can't pick a lock?  I'm disappointed...
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Hmmm ... Sheepy is acting like more of a wolf ... hey, that'd make a great story!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Montana is like decaf for the soul.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: People from California emit hazardous UV radiation.  Use SPF 30 when talking with Angelenos.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Also, Just Say Noe To Chloe.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

If he's a candlemaker, ask how much he earns per wick.


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

I think of Taco Bell more like a trailer-trash girlfriend -- cheap, adequate for when nothing else is available, and while later you'll regret it.  Except in the case of Taco Bell, it doesn't require penicillin.

White Castle is the devil.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: I know what you mean ... why is it that happiness isn't funny, while misery (someone else's of course) is hilarious?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

OK, how many hours did it take for Beth to notice Sheepy's up to something?  From morning 'til evening apparently.

That's Beth, sharp as a bowling ball ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

A sheep trying to shear people?  That's one sharp sheep ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Iron Man!  Iron Man!
Runs around in a big tin can!
Strength and speed, he commands!
Girls, watch those repulsive hands!
Ka-pow!  Here comes the Iron Man!
(sung to the tune of the old "Spider-Man" theme song, as if you couldn't tell...)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Shoulda offered him a cuppa Mobil 1 Decaf.


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Chloe, whatever you do, don't say, "At least the roof is still intact."
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Oh, come on!  I've been a coffee addict for years, and except for the occasional ocular laser beam discharge, nothing like this has ever happened to me.

OK, once, but it was near the end of the year when we were working a lot of overtime, and everyone thought it was the office holiday party.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

He's being honest.  Honesty is good, right?  Right?

Nice shading.  Like the logo as well.  Hooray for Mirrorball Man!


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Buh indeed.  Also fuh and, dare I say it, muh.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Hey, if you really wanna help, start doodling on Beth's face with a sharpie.  She'd look so cuuuuute with a li'l goatee ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Well, don't sneeze, it might be catching.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Stick a fork in Beth ... she's *done*!  And tender.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Next, Chloe will pour coffee into the frosting can, creating the Frostaccino.  Guaranteed to make your heart go fwing!

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: OK, when your blood glucose level hits four digits, it's time to stage an intervention ...
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Beth can start her own band:  "Rage Against The Sandwich".
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

In all my life before, I have never read the phrase "mapped the DNA of the platypus".  My life is now complete also.

I would have reacted *exactly* the same as Beth. (Good strip today!  I needed the laugh!)


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: I'd smack Chloe on the nose with a rolled-up newspaper, but you know it does no good unless you catch her in the act.  Bad Chloe.  No biscotti.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Yes, but can they form an acrobatic pyramid on a speeding motorcycle?  (You have watched "Wallace and Grommit", right?)
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Didn't "Palindramas" have something similar?

"We faced decaf.  Ew."


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Compared to the kitchen in some restaurants, that fridge is an improvement.  (Love Beth's expression in panel 2!)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

This comic contradicts the one from last Friday ... Chloe is the one who can't stand the heat, but Beth was the one who got out of the kitchen.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Here come de judge ... here come de judge ...

(No one under 40 will get this joke.)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

What she really needs is play-by-play announcers.  "She's drawing a line -- no wait! It's a curve!  A small indentation there, it looks like ... yes!  It's a cheekbone!  And there's the chin!  Judging from the shape, it's either a strong female character or a bishonen guy ... "

We'll be right back after this word from Micron pens ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: It's funny ... give a smile and a "hello" to everyone you meet, and you get a few smiles back.  Give out a "Hey sweet cheeks!" and slap on the butt, and you get a restraining order.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

So would you call watching that movie "a fate worse than Beth"?

And is that an English sea monster in the background.  He seems to enjoy fish and ships. *rimshot*

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: A sheep with a gun ... wasn't this a Monty Python routine?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Who put the whack in the whack-a-sheep-a-ding-ding?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: That's cruel and heartless and why didn't *I* think of it?  Thanks from me as well, Richie!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Now I have this mental image of Dr. Doom alone at home, watching "Beaches" on late-night cable and eating ice cream right out of the carton.

Natalie Williams (natbug37) says: My feelings exactly
Natalie Williams (natbug37) says: Fantastic!
Natalie Williams (natbug37) says: He did! Feedback won!
Natalie Williams (natbug37) says: I'm not sure how... but Sheepy did something to her pants...
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

In my younger (i.e. single) days, panels 2 and 3 would be considered redundant.  Woman in undies = automatically looking great.

Would that make Beth the butt of this joke?

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

So, if I call the cemetery and spend ten minutes going through voice mail menus and muzak ... I finally get through to Chloe and complain, "I don't want to leave a voice mail, I want to talk to a LIVE PERSON!" ... and Chloe says ...???

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: I foresee a re-make of "Thriller" in Chloe's future ...
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: This fall on Cartoon Network: Teenage Mutant Cthulu Penguins!  Featuring Sheepy as their mentor, and Chloe as news reporter May Bekidnapped!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: How 'bout, "We really dig our customers"?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Hey, *I* was up until 2am coloring ... *some* of us have *standards*. 

And yeah, Chloe, buy a shirt with sleeves or something.

Liz Graham (paganlizard) says:

okay, you have no idea how much i love this very strip!  it should be my anthem for some people.  i love it!!  also, it's flashbacks without color.

good times rocks! 

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

At this point, take your tube of titanium white, place in teacher's left nostril, and squeeze hard.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: And his hair tastes like spaghetti!  Really!  That's why it's called "angel hair pasta"!  Yes!  I'm ashamed of myself!
Liz Graham (paganlizard) says: i miss bob ross...  i was watching a repeat of his show the other day...  made me miss him more...
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Of course, how silly of me ... titanium white is for the *eyes* ... for up the nose, you use cadmium yellow ...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Use Bob Ross's techniques, and you can share in his artistree.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Bob could paint faster with a roller.  And a couple of bennies.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Silly Beth!  People who play MMORPGs don't HAVE friends!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Wow!  A webcomic about playing video games!  What WILL they think of next!  O the excitement!  O the sarcasm!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Is Chloe going to start wearing a yellow shirt with a big Pac-Man silhouette on it?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Beth will now get pwned by Sheepy.  Then she will get pwned by Chloe's can of soda.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

I was about to say, Chloe looks like she's havin' a bit of a hormone problem there ...

Yes, I read "Baby Train".  And so should everyone else.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Chloe must now vote Libertarian ... they've been saying for years that there's no difference between Republicrats and Demolicans!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: The doc screams, "Cthulu!" and Beth replies, "Gesundheit!"
Liz Graham (paganlizard) says: you always have to be cautious of the alien eggs.  it's messy when they hatch.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Actually, this is easy.  Simply show the scissors their reflection in a mirror.  They don't know if they're right-handed or left-handed ... they scream and turn into a stapler.

However, if a left-handed person tries to use a right-handed can opener, it creates a black hole and everybody dies.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Use the Forks, Beth!  Use the Forks!   (Also, aren't there suppose to be five or six A's in "braaaaains"?)
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

This would have been better than my first marriage.

Bitter?  Me????

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Have a little corn on the cob-ra!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: The sad thing is, I would be just like that.  "Ohh, I wonder what this is ..."
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: You mean he doesn't skin them first?  Now that's going too fur!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

OK, then, where do you stand on the "Great Pumpkin"?

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: I figured Sheepy as more of a Libertarian.  Any third-party candidate in a major election is going to be a sacrificial lamb.  *rimshot*
Liz Graham (paganlizard) says: but will he choose palin as his running mate?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Earlier tonight: thinking.
Later tonight: drinking.
Tomorrow morn: stinking.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: TRUE STORY: In my home town, they've recently outlawed smoking in bars.  A friend of mine was drinking at a bar, went outside to have a smoke, and was arrested for "public intoxication".
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

"Good Times" has never seemed so good.

(If you don't know the song, that joke will make no sense to you.  Your loss.)

Liz Graham (paganlizard) says: it's the beer faeries!!  they know how to multiply the beer.  really, one glass turns into 2 pitchers just like that *snaps*
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Hey, everyone knows that "Beechwood Aging" improves your intelligence ... that's what makes Bud wiser.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Of course there's a sheep in the mashed potatoes.  They're obviously making "Shepherd's Pie".


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: The trouble with my Drunkanese is that I speak it with a Barfic accent.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Why is it called a hangover instead of a lieunder?  And doesn't Beth have a test today?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Yeah, Chloe had to go into hiding after that incident.  Disney even made a movie about it ... "Lie Low and Stitch".

I'll shut up now.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Silly Beth ... Sheepy already rounded up all the cows.  And sold them.  And used the money for a weekend in Vegas.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: For her birthday, let's all chip in and buy Beth a car with a stick shift and an AM radio!
Matt Stout (mattstout) says: Progress sucks!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Beth needs to listen to "Out Drinkin'" by Pat Dailey.  (He always has hisself a real good time...)
Liz Graham (paganlizard) says: beer takes the edge off of life.  however, it likes to take control of the phone and drunk text people...
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

That poor girl looks to be on the drink of Beth.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Well, it's better than mopping around the office and hopping no one will notice.  On the way home, she can stop for a burger and have them supper-size it. (Which makes sense if she's having it for supper ...)
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

No, "Just Shoot Me" is an entirely different show.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Should old acquaintance be forgot
And new acquaintance too!
We'll have a six-pack or a case
Of Pabst with Ribbon Blue!

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Swiping lines from "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", are we?

Beth gives a shout-out to all her Peeps.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

"And by a Peep, to say we end
The stomachache, and the thousand unnatural shocks
That taste buds adhere to; 'tis a consuming
Devoutly to be wished ..."

   -- William Shakespeepe

Liz Graham (paganlizard) says: you know that the only thing that dissolves peeps is acid... you can't boil those bad boys down.  putting them in the microwave is awesome though...
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

So Beth is in dire need of income ... of course Chloe will be full of helpful suggestions (most of which involve brass poles, webcams, or 1-900 phone lines ...)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

They're a-movin' on down
To the cheap side,
To a basement apartment in the skids ...
A-movin' on down
To the cheap side,
Right next to folks with seventeen kids!

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Yes, get some boxes, then get some plastic wrap to waterproof the boxes, then pick out a nice alley way ... the one behind Target is very nice, plus they have a better selection of leftovers that you can pick out of the dumpster ...
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Now all they need are beds, chairs, and porridge.  Oh, and maybe a table to go with the chairs so they don't have to eat off the floor.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: I'm staying tuned.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

To make a "magic missle":

1.  Take a deck of "Magic: The Gathering" cards.
2.  Dip them in water, then put them in the freezer.
3.  Buy a slingshot.

Does +4 damage to nerds, especially since they jump *towards* the incoming projectile.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Ah, a *blast* from the past ... leading to a suture in the future.
Shan Lee Cook (shannyboi) says: That's like every Trekkie I've seen
Shan Lee Cook (shannyboi) says: I love that Spock
Bridgett Spicer (brigtoon) says:

Cake or death.... are you an Eddie Izzard fan? Little red cook book... or should we say, weight loss journal? If this is mysterious comment-speak, check out Dressed to Kill: Izzard... Anyhow, I found that weight loss journals didn't do much for me either!

Shan Lee Cook (shannyboi) says: Can't talk except to talk about being too busy to talk.
