    I’m retired now but I’ve never ever gotten a job through a newspaper ad.

    Although I did try a bunch.

    Where do you read “Daddy’s Home,” besides here, if anywhere else?

    @Tony Rubino

    I don’t read Daddy’s Home I just look at the petty pictures.

    Hate to tell you this but I don’t think Spork really wants to work.


    As to your question. Alas, our local paper doesn’t have Daddy’s Home. I’ve only seen it in the Chicago Trib., which was a delight to me to find DH there.

    Our paper used to poll the readers about which cartoons they liked. They haven’t done that for a very long time. If they do, I’ll certainly put in my bid for Daddy’s Home! You betcha!

    But I’d still stop by here because I like the company. : )

    I’ve gotten two jobs through the want ads.

    Before I discovered GoComics, I read “Daddy’s Home” on ArcaMax, but stopped going there because of all the ads that would freeze up my screen.

    I don’t know whether your remark is funnier if you meant to say"pretty" pictures, or if “petty” was intentional, but I love it!

    And I bet he’ll never tell.

    Bev, this is a real quandary. On one hand, do I thank you for stepping up as my proofreader (thus admitting my poor spelling skills). Or, on the other hand, should I keep silent and let everyone think I’m quite witty?

    And on the gripping hand if I even reply to your comment, you’ll lose your bet.

    Oh my, what ever shall I do?

    X … do let us know whether you decide to respond so I’ll know how to reply, OK?


    Or just pick one:

    A. “Oh X that’s so funny!”

    B. “Oh X that’s so funny! "

    Meanwhile …
    Daddy’s Home isn’t in any papers around here that I know of….
    though I do read whatever comics are in any paper I get hold of.


    I like to read printed comics, and I know that’s how cartoonists get paid, which I’d like to support…
    but I’d miss the forums if I didn’t read them online.


    The newspapers are dying…. my local one is so small and flimsy it’s a 20 minute read, and is now 75 cents, when it was 25 cents in about 2009.


    They concentrate on news… but the news is fresher online….
    and eliminate comics to save money, which makes me even less likely to buy it.

    Put in MORE comics, and QR-codes or bar codes to reach forums…. then I’ll probably buy more papers….
    Or an online subscription, if it includes all the comics, which now it doesn’t.


    In the future, though, I know that one way or the other, they’ll need to monetise online publication…
    we’re enjoying a free or very cheap ride but only while printed newspapers earn enough to pay the syndicates, who pay the artists. And I’m not helping much.


    Nonetheless, I don’t have much money, so I’m glad I can come here.. . And Pro gets me no ads… I can’t believe people complain about 3 cents a day.

    just here. reading the comments takes me all day so i don’t have time to go anywhere else.
    -
    funny that everyone complains about the ads. guess that Adblock really works because i don’t ever see any ads here or at arcamax.

    Just here. Had never heard of Daddy’s Home – or most of the comics we read here – till I discovered GoComics.
