Even worse than I feared. Not only are the jokes from China, with poor translations, they also got mixed up.
This is what happens when you out source to a country with no sense of humor.
Monty should not have been so cheap and ordered the poor quality AmazonBasics™ jokes.
I had to go check and see if Beetle Bailey had Monty’s jokes today (different strips have collaborated before) but apparently Beetle isn’t on gocomics. Ofc i don’t know if Beetle is still being done every day, haven’t read it in years and never read it regularly
While you’re at it, ask him to have a go at translating those strange, wingdings symbols that Sarge always says when he is angry at Beetle…
sounds like they gave you the wrong Monty box. :D
Tea and oranges come all the way from China.
At least Bloom County back in the day made a point of domestically-sourcing its jokes, providing jobs to wholesome Christian American joke writers.
I knew it would happen! They got the wrong package! LOL
“Do not mistake temptation for opportunity.”
“He who throws dirt is losing ground.”
I don’t think these are for the comic strip. I wonder what the Fortune Cookie factory got?
Lousy OEM translator! It should have read, “Beetle! General Halftrack wants to play golf! Where are his balls?!”
Originally the Chinese Red Army had no rank insignia, what with being an egalitarian “people’s army”. However, there was a problem with officers being indistinguishable from lower ranks. This was solved for a while by maintaining the common uniform, but adding additional pockets to the officers’ uniforms.
There’s a joke in there somewhere. Oh, yes. As in “Animal Farm”, all were equal but “some were more equal than others”.
This is funny!!
The jokes are like that new Chinese Car, the NotSoHotsi.
Hilarious, especially using one of the least funny comics lines in probably the funniest strip
This has been the best comic addressing the shortage issues.
A real knee slapper and belly laugh. Good one Jim, worth the wait. What tomorrow gag going to be?
This is why I get my jokes from Washington DC. 90% of them fall flat, but the source is endless.
Demand a refund, Monty!
Those jokes are stale and not funny!
