    Why do we only get the classic version of this strip?

    This is from 2000!

    Scroll down, on the right hand side click on the Creators.com link. There you will find today’s strip. :)

    I don’t know where the cartoonist got it, but I got it from a country song several years ago.

    The author has requested that GoComics run the earlier strips. And, actually this is from 2003.

    Work because you truly love the job, and care about the results. The highest pay is the sense of a job well done.

    Yeah. Kinda makes me feel like barfing.

    Me too. I’d rather do something I enjoy. Like sleeping.

    I know! I’d be fired if I worked like I didn’t need $. Gotta eat to live, gotta work to eat.

    I know it goes along with that other annoying old saying, Find a job you love and you’ll never have to work. However, at some level this is wishful thinking.

    You HAVE the shortcut to today’s version right to your right. (And you can hit return after reading it). I LOVE that we get both the latest and a bonus strip everyday (a while back, with Comics.com, we had 3 total versions).

    That saying and the other about “never working” have been around much longer than TV (and YES, I DO remember).


    One I like even better, is to always smile as if you’re happy. The reason why differs according to narrator, but my favorite is that others will be infected with your happy mood. I do try to smile through everything and I’ve had the average # of troubles – never as bad if you can keep a smile.

    Since I only started reading this comic two years ago, I am delighted that GoComics runs oldies. I get twice the pleasure each day.

    I’m not sure reality shows were even around when I first heard it, but in any case it sets off my gag reflex as well. It’s beloved by saccharine sorts who are also fond of spouting “A stranger is a friend you haven’t met yet.” And I’ll stop now before this turns into a full tilt rant.
