2004 All My Exes.

Comic Vote

As soon as I typed the page title I regretted it, but if I have to suffer by remembering a song then so must you all. If you don’t know the song in question then I urge you not to look it up for, in the words of Doctor Zaius, “you may not like what you find…”

It amuses me that naïve Jo is less susceptible to romantic nonsense than Carol.


Don’t listen to him, you should totally look the song up. Misery loves company, so come join the rest of us who already know the song.

My guess is that it’s some combination of Carol placing more value in romantic nonsense and Jo being more interested in doing things in the right time, in the right place, and with the right people because that’s burned her before.

Is it “All My Exes Live In Texas?”

Because my dad occasionally sings that line but nothing else, and I’m pretty sure I don’t want to know the rest of the song.

that’s the first song i thought of, and all i can say is a huge amount of the songs made by the singer were dark and depressing.

Isn’t that almost all country, though? No offense to fans of country music, and I’ll admit there are some good songs, but there’s a reason for the joke “what do you get if you play a country song backwards? You get your truck back, your dog back, your house back, and your wife back”

You forgot about all the HUGE wads of cash that fills your wallet, due to all the booze you magically DIDN’T drink-to-forget.

Yes, that is the song. Not one of George Strait’s finer moments.

George’s brother is a mechanic.
His name is “Bearing Strait”. ;D

Just a storyline clarification question:

If Jess and Evrina dated before, why didn’t Evrina recognize her brother, Ed, when he and Nina were at the coffee shop?

Apologies, it’s been such a long time since I reread the comic that I’ve forgotten a bit of the characters’ back stories!

We’ll get to it. Be patient.

I’d presume because he’s SO much different from her she wouldn’t recognize Jess in him… and since it was a different kind of life for Jess back then, she hit and ran, so they rarely met the family for Evrina to know him outright?

We must know for sure! We needs the dramas!!

Least we haven’t heard yet about her “Achy Breaky Heart” or how Evrina “Came in Like a Wrecking Ball,”….,.. Good luck getting those out of your head.

I still feel bad for Billy Ray Cyrus. He had a decent, respectable career in country music, making songs you wouldn’t be embarrassed to listen to. And he also made one garbage song that went straight to the top of the pop charts, so now a successful career is distilled down to “one-hit wonder” because of Achey Breaky Heart.

My response to “earworms” is to “Fight Fire With Fire”!
In that vein, I offer-up a little bit of Mel McDaniel’s “Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On”:
