In a way, it might be just as well. They need the roof over their heads.
At least he’s catching up on his sleep.
A change really is as good as a rest in this case.
I know it is a comic and a joke is a joke, but that level of dependence is just sad.
I’m thinking that the kids could have some fun with this now that they know and Adam doesn’t!
That would be serious for many caffeine addicts (like me). Once a year, I give up caffeine, and I have to do it s-l-o-w-l-y or I will have a massive headache. It takes several days.
I was weaned on Navy coffee. Caffeine doesn’t bother me – I sometimes have a cup of coffee right before bed. One of our godsons has what I suppose you’d call an allergy to caffeine; the stuff makes him so sleepy he can’t function. A candy bar, a soda, and cuppa – and off to Slumberland
Well, maybe a little detox is just what Adam needed. ..but no
Well, at least after this story arc Adam should be caught up on his sleep. Maybe he’ll even be able to stay awake without coffee! (But most likely, not.)
Next story arc. Class action lawsuit.
Can you sue for “Alienation of Alertness”?
Caffeine withdrawal: one hell-of-a headache!
Guess we can put this story to bed now.
This doesn’t seem at all funny to me. Caffeine is an addictive, brain-altering chemical, albeit a legal one. As a manufacturer of such a thing, you have a responsibility to label it accurately so that your customers can uze it correctly. By not doing so, Coffee-Offee are screwing around with people’s brains, and, even though I don’t drink coffee myself, that is and should be scary. News anchor guy is an aśśhole for joking about it like this, and it really should be grounds for a pretty serious lawsuit against the coffee company. I have no idea if any of the stuff I just wrote would actually fly in a law court, but it ought to.
Let the lawsuits begin……
Comic strips certainly aren’t like the real world. A coffee manufacturer would never admit to mislabeling their product. A ton of lawsuits would follow.
He should see a doctor. He obviously has a serious medical condition.
And he didn’t even go through withdrawal.
Not that I’m bitter, but Diet Sunkist used to have one of the highest levels of caffeine annnnnd it was orange! Now, it had hardly any. I have been sad ever since.
They need to buy a supply of his regular brew, make a pot, then pour it down his throat.
be glad if you didn’t have to carry him onto the sofa, Kids.
This really isn’t funny. My parents were coffee adicts.
When my brother and I were toddlers, mama took us to visit her parents – who had recently switched to decaf. They didn’t mention this.
Mama swore that she went from 30 cups of full caffeine to zero. She had a headache, nausea, and high anxiety for days, and she was seriously worried about her heart. Our grandparents had to look after us little ones. They finally let her know what happened after 4 days. She may have forgiven them, but she never forgot.
She also never went back to 30 cups a day, either, 7 cups TOPS.
Doc Toon, where are you? There’s a need for your nuclear coffee stat!
Better get Adam some Klatchian coffee — he’s obviously knurd!
