Are you ready to choke up a little bit?
And here’s one from his original Wookie the Chew series that I had never noticed before.
I think quotes out of context are some of the best random comedy you can get. Overhearing snippets of conversations is like being privy to people’s sleep talking. Endlessly amusing. Actually, this one time my little brother, the most epic sleep talker of all time, sat up in a tent filled with me, my other brother and 4 of my cousins and snarled the now immortal phrase “fine, lock me up with the sadistic cats!” We still have no idea what he was talking about.
The other great source for strange sentences is parenthood. Parents seem to find themselves saying the weirdest things for perfectly normal reasons. And artist Nathan Ripperger has really gone to town on that idea. With great results!
As it happens, I think these are generally good advice for anyone. You can see more here.
Two posts in two days Puffin, aren’t you proud?
Ps: My excellent brother has also updated his blog, go check it out → Attention To Detail
I’m normally not a fan of College Humor. It’s juvenile and usually pretty horrible. But they do occasionally hit one right out of the park, like these travel posters for the lazy, very much in the style of the Steve Thomas work I’ve featured before.
Well done College Humor. Well done.

Apologies for the radio silence. This employment lark is not as much fun as I was led to believe. Anyway, hope to be writing more from now on. The republican line up is providing material faster than I can even process it, let alone write about it. And I’m just barely keeping the lid on a simmering rant about PETA, which should be…. interesting.
But as far as today is concerned, take a look at these! Remember the art nouveau Firefly posters I’ve written about before? Well Quantum Mechanix has just released posters of the gentlemen of Firefly. Unfortunately I don’t like them quite as much as the ladies. Some of these seem a little forced, especially when you compare them to things like the Jaynestown poster. But they’re still pretty excellent.
I’ll be back tomorrow Puffin. No really, I will.

Here on the east coast we’ve had an earthquake and a hurricane. So I thought it might be a good idea to talk about some of the less well known disasters in our nation’s history. Such as The Menacing of the East River Bridge.
Or the Great Pittsburgh Zombie Outbreak.
Although officially known as the Washington Monument since plans for the magnificent obelisk were underway while the first President was still alive, the name is something of a misnomer as the currently standing tower is actually a replica. The first Monument, completed in 1862, was attacked and destroyed soon after by “Potomac Patty,” the local river monster who had been won over to the secessionist side of the Civil War by promises of “fresh fish flesh” from the Confederate Army. As photography was scarce during the war, this is actually a photo of the re-completed Monument with an artist’s likeness of Patty grappling with the tower.
Or, for that matter, the original design of the Statue of Liberty. As we all know, Frédéric Bartholdi first envisioned not a shining beacon of freedom featuring Lady Liberty, but a dire warning depicting Krgyyx threatening the world, as he was wont to do.
These are so going in my foyer.
