694 Spring Loaded.

I remember singing that song in second grade and really disliking it. Somehow I went to the only grade school in Kansas where Halloween hadn’t had the Halloween scrubbed out of it. I hadn’t heard it sung in years but I wrote it in to this page then a couple days later Stephen Colbert sang it on his show. Guuuuuuuuh! Creepy!

When I came up with the idea of Jo springing on to the counter it brought to mind knowing a guy who could jump flat footed into the bed of a pickup. I’ve never been able to jump very high. Even less so now since I weigh as much as 2 people. I think jumping could potentially be a useful skill though. In fact, it might have been the guy who posts as Henchman 21 now that I think about it. If not I’m pretty sure he had a pretty good jump stat. Much better than mine at least…

After Wes left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth a few rounds of Brooksie & John should recharge your batteries.

No bad taste here, but it’s always a pleasure to see Brooksie.

Bobsagat? I’m not sure i get it…typo’d Bob Saget as a funny expletive, or or a word i’ve never heard of in an in-joke i’m unaware of?

Lol, BOBSAGAT! I think she just leaped up like 3 feet to 4 feet onto that counter, that is really impressive.

Brooksie is ten ninjas.

Brooksie can’t be ten ninjas. She’s way too good to be that many. Everybody knows the quality of a ninja on a mission is inversely proportional to the quantity of ninjas on the team.

No wonder nobody messes with me. I’m like 0.01% of a ninja. (Basically, I have the bit where I can sometimes spot ninjas in the wild.)

It can be done with enough exercise. (Actually there is an old technique to train this that ninja’s used. Dig a hole in the ground barely wide enough for you to stand in, then jump out of it. Once you can easily do this, dig it deeper and start again.)

And never underestimate the skills of Brooksie, Movie department ninja!

Hi, this is my 1st post: 1-some thing year ago I started reading this comic. On Nov the 24 2010 I am done!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA*cry loudly*

Man, if it wasn’t for this comic, I would have never remembered I did this song in gradeschool too. The music teacher had all us kids hide behind our chairs with the lights off until we got closer to the end of the song. Then she’d flicker the lights and we’d all jump up. lol.

I knew that song because of a set of books “Scary Stories to Read in the Dark” or something like that.
I preferred the song that went:
Don’t you ever laugh as a hearse goes by
For you may be the next to die
They cover you up with a big white sheet
All the way from your head to your feet
They put you in a big black box
And cover you up with dirt and rocks
The worms crawl in the worms crawl out
The worms play pinochole on your snout
They eat your eyes they eat your nose
They eat the jelly between your toes
So don’t ever laugh as a hearse goes by
For you may be the next to die.

I guess I ended up reading that enough times to memorize it. Sorry to take up so much space but it has to be in its entirity to be enjoyed.

I learned a slightly different version:

Did you ever think when the hearse goes by
That you may be the next to die?
They’ll bury you deep in the cold cold ground
where its inky black and theres never a sound
The worms crawl in the worms crawl out
In your stomach and out your mouth

There may have been some more lines to it but that’s the ones I rembember.

Took me two days to read it but I am finally done.

Like the comic lots. Very Clerks-like feel which is no bad thing. :-)

I’ve been trying to find that song for years! I remember it from Grade school, too, and no one else I know remembers it. We would turn out all the lights and someone had to be the ghost. Or maybe I dreamed that part. I dunno. Anyway… yeah.
