    Ah; you should never try to drop a tv set out the window while it’s still plugged in and connected to the cable.

    Daniel Keyes is still around. I bet he’d get a kick out of this strip.

    Too sad to be funny, but a great strip.

    As Groucho Marx said, “TV is the opiate of the masses”…
    Oops, wrong Marx, and that’s not quite what was said, but you get the point….

    Over 20 years ago, I took my TV out, put a blindfold on, taped a cigarette to its screen, and shot it. Life has never been so good. Yes, internet, but I can download what I want when I want, and turn it off a lot easier.

    They spend billions on research on how to get you to keep watching. READ A BOOK!

    I find the internet is just as much a time-thief, but I love it so much, I can’t stay mad at it.

    You’ll have to pry the TV remote for ‘Breaking Bad’ from my cold dead fingers.

    @packratjohn

    Writer Harlan Ellison called tv the “Glass Teat.” He should know he wrote for television.

    I have a big flatscreen TV which I’m using for my computer monitor – I had my Dish cable put on hold for six months and if I don’t miss it (which I haven’t so far) I’ll just have it disconnected permanently.

    So true. Don’t have TV anymore but have Hulu, Netflix, GoComics and paperbacks from the library. Ha ha.

    With a ’smart’phone, you can do all the above; PLUS, check out free or 2- or 3-week PDFs from the library. Lots of the old good stuff is now free, out of copyright, in the public domain! Plus people like Cory Doctorow, all on CopyLeft!
