Make mine a Scotch, Dalmore 12 year old if you have it.
huh…just like my dad’s masterpiece, all but forgotten
A club to Rat’s head would be more entertaining.
Before long, it will just be known as Dunko (for those who don’t know, the real-life counterpart is slowly dropping the “Donuts” from its name).
Being praised brings happiness. Beer and donuts brings obesity which brings its own problems.
And if you left any money to charity, they’ll dig you up and check your pockets!
The three phases of fame according with Daniel Pennac (from his piece “Mercì” if my memory is still working) :
1 – Promising young
2 – Maestro venerable
3 – Normal scumbag
If you are remembered 20 years after you die. your story will be twisted to suit the needs of the living.
Moral of the story: If he didn’t smoke that pipe, there would be one less Starbicks in this world.
All that pipe smoking finally killed him.
Tote rien se tome en declin ;
Tot chiet, tot muert, tot vait a fin ;
Hom muert, fer use, fust porrist,
Tur font, mur chiet, rose flaistrit;
Cheval tresbuche, drap viesist,
Tot ovre fet od mainz perist.
Cyrano de Bergerac said that the best soldiers have no medals.
At least I know my studio won’t be replaced by a Radio Shack, a Blockbuster Video, or a Borders Books.
Or a Sambo’s.
All we are is dust in the wind.
The ‘Wiki’ remembers everything! Beware the ‘Wiki’!
Cynical, but accurate!
“I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is vanity and grasping for the wind.” – Ecclesiastes 1:14
Look upon my works ye mighty and despair.
15 minutes of fame…..
Maybe they named the strip mall with the Starbicks and Dunko Donuts after him?
“Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”—Shakespere
Mortality where is thy sting if I can feast on cheese, donuts washed down with suds before the grim reaper prevails?
Given that young adults today and their children are growing up in the era of “participation awards,” awards, as such, are pretty devalued. Like Syndrome said in the original “Incredibles” movie, “When everyone’s super, no one will be.”
30 comments already and no mention of Pastis collection of Reubens :-D
If all things must fall, why build a pyramid at all? Alan Parsons
Dunko + Guinness – does wonders for the heart. (I know it makes MINE feel pretty darn good.)
The great thing about death is, at that stage you don’t give a rat’s ass what folks think of you. Which is why I decided to get a head start not caring ages ago.
Eat right, exercise, die anyway. Now you live inside a bottle. The reaper’s traveling at full throttle. It’s getting you but you don’t see. The reaper’s you, and the reaper is me. Suicide solution by Ozzy Osborne. Lyrics by Bob Daisly.
Great way to view life… enjoy it while you can & in the manner you deem fit!!
If we can make the world a little nicer for those around us and the next generation, I call it a win. Long term influence is up to God’s whims.
Trumps most of the comics I’ve read so far today…
Everyone needs SOMETHING to believe in…….. I believe I’ll have another beer!!
“Our works in stone, in paint, in print, are spared, some of them, for a few decades or a millennium or two, but everything must finally fall in war, or wear away into the ultimate and universal ash – the triumphs, the frauds, the treasures and the fakes. A fact of life: we’re going to die. “Be of good heart,” cry the dead artists out of the living past. “Our songs will all be silenced, but what of it? Go on singing.” Maybe a man’s name doesn’t matter all that much.” – Orson Welles
Out here in the origin point of the Starbucks contagion, Dunkin Donuts put Winchel’s out of business, then all the Dunkins went away. (Krispy Kreame tried to nudge its nose under the tent.) It’s strange to be looking through a Google Street View and still find one in business.
Once again, Pig, cracks me up XD
Now that was downright kafkaesque.
And, a single word changed to suit my own purposes…
The tumult and the shouting dies;
The Captains and the Kings depart:
Still stands the ancient sacrifice,
An humble and a contrite heart.
The good you do gives a warm feeling – usually – like “peeing your pants in a dark suit”. Unrecognized. But it’s true the evil done lives long after them.
The good we do and the love we create are like a rock dropped in an infinite lake. The rock may be forgotten, but the the waves of our actions continue forever.
“What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but loses his soul?” truly, there is more meaning to this life than earthly gains and treasures.
My name is Ozymandias …
Does it have to be either/or? Can you drink beer, eat donuts, and still do cool things? (I must admit I love how nihilistic this comic has become.)
Is that guy named Ozymandias by any chance?
Jewels tarnish, kingdoms fall,Lovers whine, and kisses pall,
“Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair.”
And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.”’ But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’
So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.
I like how one letter was left off of the thrift store truck.
Life is but a brief flash of light seen as the newborn falls into the grave. And all the honors of your life, forgotten…
We are all Starbucks Dust.
I don’t like today’s comic.
Hyper-Pig is right! We’ve got a new Starbucks on the verge of opening in our village, and that’s about as exciting as things get around here.
The Dead are dead, you know? They have gone to their Eternal Reward (or punishment). It’s all done for them….
Fame is fleeting; a drunken stupor is forever!
America runs on Dunko!
Somebody was reading Nietzsche recently.
OOOOOOH YES! But whiskey for me!
“Why Die Thirsty” by the Alex Meixner Band.
Actually now it’s just “dunko”. Stupid pastis can’t even get the names of fictional corporations he invented right. Dumbass
All those participation trophies…….
