    Hurray for the endless stream of commercial crape that’s constantly being fed into our minds!

    thanks for saying “tidal wave” instead of that insipid “tsunami”…we are, afterall, english speakers. your strip would be funnier if it weren’t so true! great strip. their glasses remind of my days in high school (1970’s) ~Phil

    “The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don’t just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.” – James Nicholl, 1990

    thephildagostino: Especially since “tidal waves” have nothing to do with tides, other than that they both involve water. Tsunami is a scientific term and so is understandable in any language in the world – even land-locked ones, if the person is educated enough to have encountered it. Your tag looks very much like some Greek meaning “one who likes a little ignorance”.

    The tv has a volume control button, or 2.

    I despise when the commercial just before the show comes back on is
    so I mute the commercial and miss out on 10 to 15 seconds (or more) of the show.
