There’s a part of me that can’t believe I actually did this joke. It’s much smaller than the part that cracks up at it. ^_____^
What do cartoonists talk about you may wonder. Wonder no more:
Agoutipatootey: HEY YOU!
Agoutipatootey: I have INSANE NEWS!
betweenfailures: Insane is it?
Agoutipatootey: It is OUTsane, that’s how insane it is!
Agoutipatootey: Our downstairs neighbor tried to kill her boyfriend.
betweenfailures: But didn’t get it done by the looks of your sentence.
Agoutipatootey: Nope, but she got pretty close.
betweenfailures: How did this strange series of events go down?
Agoutipatootey: WELL… The other day, a cop came to the door and asked me if I’d heard anything and I’m all “No, what’s going on?” because I notice that there are cops everywhere and they have police tape around the unit downstairs and they say that she stabbed him in the neck and stomach.
betweenfailures: Those places are important for living!
Agoutipatootey: He called 911 and talked to the operator until he passed out. When the cops arrived, they caught a blood-soaked woman fleeing the scene
betweenfailures: She didn’t flee very well then. You’re sposta flee right away. That’s the optimal feeing time. You don’t wait around to get your flee on is what I’m saying.
Agoutipatootey: She is doing it wrong!
betweenfailures: She’s going to get raped with a broom handle the right way now, so it all evens out, I guess.
Agoutipatootey: Ha ha! Prison rape…
betweenfailures: Do you know the whys and wherefores?
Agoutipatootey: Nothing too clear, but the other neighbors say that she has a history of being crazy and that she’d just switched to some new anti-freak out pills… that apparently don’t work. After the cops cleared out, her landlord let us view the crime scene
betweenfailures: XD did she charge you to look?
Agoutipatootey: Naw, first time is free. Let me tell you, there was a lotta blood
betweenfailures: It’s amazing how much you can lose an not die.
Agoutipatootey: Yeah, tell me about it. There were big goopy pools of it in the bedrooms, then a trail of blooddrops leading out to the foyer
betweenfailures: Gross. How bad a shape is the dude in?
Agoutipatootey: He’s in stable condition now.
betweenfailures: That’s good then.
Thomas: Gonna try and knock their socks off from the get go?
Somesortofrobot: Something like that.
I want to show something good,
and that page would make a really good thing to showcase
Thomas: It’s not something you’ve posted though, right?
Thomas: Well I look forward to seeing it later then.
Somesortofrobot: And you will.
Thomas: Oh will I now!? We’ll see about that!
Thomas: Also, everything is porn. Ever and always.
Somesortofrobot: Tree rings?
Thomas: Ever and always.
Somesortofrobot: I guess I’ll just have to accept it
though still make fun of people for it.
Thomas: Just be warned, someday you may find something weird you like and then it will all boomerang back on you. Like a returning stick of doom!
the day that happens
you can say I told you so.
Thomas: And I will. Oh, will I ever!
I might even get one in before it happens just to make sure.
Somesortofrobot: Oh, I’ve come to expect as such
Thomas: Good good.
I can see it now. You’ll be all “I can’t help it, Ziploc bags make the experience better!” And I’ll be all “Remember may 23, 2010? I told you so! Told you so very hard!”
And that’s the story of how you get the nickname Ziploc.
Somesortofrobot: or doggybag.
Thomas: Whatever you prefer. I think Ziploc sounds cooler, and it’s a brand name.
I should copyright that.
Thomas: People can say “what up, Ziplock?” And you can say “Keepin’ it fresh, yo.”
Somesortofrobot: Now with zipper action!
Thomas: Yellow and blue make green!
I guess if you go with doggy bag you can say “Takin’ it home to the missus.”
Somesortofrobot: Oh, lol.
betweenfailures: I’ve never asked formally, but I always assumed if ever I wanted to have Ginger in a comic it would be alright. Am I correct in thinking this?
crazycarl: Yep, I’d totally be honored.
betweenfailures: Gewd. Gewd. Ginger’s anal sex adventure is a go!
crazycarl: I’m sure it would garner more visitors than my own comics!
betweenfailures: Fun for the whole family.
Except the kids.
And the grandparents.
Fun for select members of the family would be more accurate.
crazycarl: Although, oddly enough, Great-Grandma is really enjoying it.
betweenfailures: Memaw was a hellcat in her day.
betweenfailures: How’s work?
crazycarl: Not too bad. It’s getting hot though, so it’s sometimes unpleasant in the field.
betweenfailures: I spose it would be. Finding anything interesting?
crazycarl: Nothing excitingly new, but we’ve just started, and hopefully soon we’ll start rafting down the river to sites. We’ll be camping overnight a few times.
betweenfailures: Sounds dangerous.
crazycarl: I am an archaeologist. We’ve been working along the rapids right now. Doing some dangerous boulder climbing.
betweenfailures: I like how saying what you are is an explanation.
betweenfailures: I’m an archaeologist… Bears do not threaten me.
