Jeewillikers, T.J., what did you eat?! (Once more, two is company and three is a crowd.)
“Timing Is Everything.”
When you gotta go, you gotta go, and it’s time for TJ to go.
I guess the point of this week’s thread is that three’s a crowd. However, the point is being made over the courser functions of life.
They need to rent a Porta Potty, stat.
Time to go to the nearest gas station if you want to keep living there TJ.
Oh poop. Oh dear.
Or invest in another bathroom.
Will the s,,,, hit the fan?
I could really do without this new story arc.
He’s pooped in England. He’s pooped in France. Right now he’s gonna poop in his pants!
Uh OHHHHPoopie. But it illustrates the point. Too many people in that small, one bathroom house, and guess who will need to go?
Just as I feared yesterday, TJ may see the lady in her all-together. Pull that curtain, Toni, or it may be curtains for the trio.
Thank goodness he doesn’t appear to be delirious from his affectation. It would be horrible if he came in and mistook the tub for the other water feature.
It was either these suds for Toni, or the kind you get from pouring something into a glass.
Sorry, Toni….there’ll soon be the one thing that even Calgon™ can’t take away!
And, Hopefully they aren’t watching “Frozen”. It’d be ill timing, if “Let It Go!” started to play…..
General Custer is surrounded by General Montezuma. Did TJ take a laxative or something? Anyway, I would rather have Toni’s dilemma than TJ’s dilemma at this moment. However I predict that Toni & Brad are going to have a serious conversation real soon. And it’s not about adding a bathroom…
Bet he wishes there was an outhouse in the backyard.
This week Evans gets in every possible bathroom humor joke and he also manages to get in a naked Toni. Could be the best week ever!
Well at least this didn’t happen to Gunther in Tiffany’s room…

Rub – a – dub dub. What’s that floating in the tub?
Grab a pail.
Oh yeah…Brad will definitely ask mom and dad to add a master bath or just move out to a larger home. This house is just right size for TJ.
Time to put a Mr. Johnny in the yard.
I find it impossible to believe that Toni and Brad would be perfectly fine with a third person living in their house who isn’t related to either of them and who is perfectly capable of affording his own place. It’s weird. Why is he still there?
I would think that two firefighters could afford an apartment of their own.
Totally on a different subject – So, whatever happened to Delta?
The point is that you should never have the toilets in the bathroom.
Toni, tell the Jackass to “HOLD IT.”
Go next door TJ
Getting serious for a moment, I think TJ may have more than a bowel problem, he might need to go to the Emergency Room, as he could have a case of gastroenteritis. I had it once and it wasn’t pleasant.
TJ may have good reason to look alarmed.
Can this arc! (Pun intended!) Reprise the naked budget arc.
Third panel looks like something out of “Arlo and Janis” strip by Jimmy Johnson.
Don’t remember this on Three’s Company… not that I watched much of it in the first place…
1. My hope for Greg’s work is that today is meant ONLY in fun and the panels this week are simply to point out that there are humorous situations that do regularly arise in a household with only one bathroom.
2. However, if this is the start of a story line where it (as many hope) is suggested that TJ move out, I will be disappointed. I personally like the interplay of TJ with Brad & Toni.
3. I think that even though one bathroom in a (relatively small house) is not necessarily ideal… it is the way MANY folks live. Many groups that share a home have many more than three people share one bathroom, and many families have way more than three people who share a bathroom. Is it ideal? No, but damn, having three people have to “struggle” with the minor inconveniences of sharing a bathroom is truly a first-world problem in my opinion.
So, I do not know where Greg is planning to lead us with this story. I hope it is just comedic bathroom humor hi-jinks and that is all. If he is leading us to having TJ move out, then I will be disappointed.
In regards to a newly married couple needing to be all “on their own”… yes, that is perhaps “ideal” as well, but it too does not really represent how it MUST be done. There are a myriad of circumstances where a newly married couple will have others also live in their household. Economic factors (as is a major factor for Brad & Toni) are common, as are the needs of other family members as well. In my own case, when my wife and I were first married, we had two elderly relatives who needed care that lived with us for several years. Again it may not have been the modern American “ideal” but it was the right choice for us, because we wanted to help out these elderly relatives. They deserved our “sacrifice” to help them. And, regardless of the reason for the extended number of people living together, a newly married couple can find ways to have “couple” time and “alone” time, with some ingenuity.
Dang, TJ. What’ve you been eating?! I hope Toni locked the door.
Five gallon bucket time.
TJ does the cooking. Just wait until it kicks in for the other two, like in the movie Bridesmaids: they’ll be pooping in the sink and out in the street. Emergency call to Knute who is the real master at cleaning up. “Alamentary, my dear Watson, alamentary”.
I hope this isn’t TJ’s turn to use the kitchen…
Should a firefighter know better than to burn candles next to the shower curtain?
Just go outside in the bushes, TJ. You’re a Neanderthal, anyway.
Today’s strip implies the answer to yesterday’s discussion of why they would run the dishwasher in the morning while preparing to head out for the day. Looks like they’re winding down for the night. Toni and TJ have on the same clothes as yesterday – so if there wasn’t enough hot water for Brad to shower, where did Toni get enough to fill the tub? (Maybe they read the comments here and turned the dishwasher off.)
Since TJ is so handy, maybe he can add a second bathroom, or if that fails, an outhouse.
In the meantime he can take a bucket to his room and relieve himself there.
Either they need to move, NOW, or TJ needs to find his own place STAT!
Looks like Toni will need to light more candles.
What house on “Planet Earth” only has one bathroom. Puhlease….
Now here’s a guy who won’t take no for an answer… :s
Along the lines of the “Number 2” references today – It appears that Toni’s BS-ometer is about to get buried in the RED! :)
Many modern houses have toilets walled off from the bath area. In fact, some gave the tub in the bedroom area and the toilet in the next room.
When I was about ten years old, my older brother was “occupying” the sole bathroom that was shared by four members of my family, and wouldn’t relinquish it. So, as I only had to do #1, I went outside behind a cinderblock outbuilding to relieve myself. After I’d finished, I leaned a hand on the wall I was standing next to. It turned out to have a hairline crack running horizontally and it collapsed, fortunately, away from me. But I was struck in the head and the right foot by the top row of blocks which gashed a nice little strip out of my scalp and sprained the foot.
I’m told I looked quite the sight hobbling back to the house, spurting blood with every step.
This has no real bearing upon today’s strip, it just shows what can happen when you’re denied use of the “facility”.
TJ arrived here from the now – defunct comic strip “Beantown Bill Blowhork”
Now, ON today’s subject; food poisoning is quite serious in some cases (I’ve had it) and has a quick onset.
Brad and Toni may have to show their EMT chops before this arc is over, and their fire fighting skills if Toni’s candles get out of hand while they’re treating TJ.
Let’s cut to the chase… TJ will be gone by Saturday’s strip.
Okay, I think I see where this is going. TJ has officially worn out his welcome and will be asked to find other accommodations. This somehow brings him into Gunther’s life where TJ acts as cupid between Gunth and Tiffany. Or maybe I’m way off.
It’s hard to see where this arc is going. It could be about TJ’s health or maybe just a prelude to building a new addition onto the house. I can’t see that TJ has anywhere to move to. He gave up his $$ for investment in the FUSE, devotes his life to the FUSE, and probably doesn’t earn enough to pay rent for an apartment.
Sooo many of the unsympathetic posters here need to think back to their last bad burrito before they comment.
This to much lol
I meant TJ to much lol
Who’s got the biggest problem, TJ’s eyes or Toni’s nose? Whatever, that better be Brad banging on the door telling Toni to “Dive, dive, dive”. Hope Greg maintains the comedy in this arc, he’s already made both Gunther and Tiffany miserable.
It should be BRAD banging on the door to get in!
maybe Brad is banging on the door to tell Toni he is taking TJ to the emergency room. The fact that all three have eaten the same meal suggests that it is not the food but TJ.
We all know what a #1 and a #2 are. Today, at the drive – thru at the local Mexican joint, I noticed that a #3 is the Super Burrito.
This is certainly not a desirable situation. The best solution for Toni is to wrap a towel about her and get out of the bathroom while the unfortunate TJ stinks it up. While he is tending to his gut-churning gastric distress (and worse), she and Brad can then use the alone-time for a little marital adventure!
Hi, gang. I just got home from having surgery on my left arm for nerve release of my ulnar and median nerves (carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel surgery.) I think it’s going to help me!
Just use the kitchen sink. Also what the heck is with the candles?? She’s really short, too, unless it’s just disproportional. I’m short and I still can’t fit in the tub.
“Glurk.” A pretty descriptive sound. However in Neanderthal – it could be a marriage proposal.
