The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. It’s also a good way to get him to do a job you want done. Right Opal.
The way to clean up a basement is to throw out all the junk. If you throw out all the junk, Opal will throw you out. The smell of doom is in the air.
Earl gave up WAY too easily!!
Sorry man, you went down many stars in the MAN listings!
Marital extortion, or just a negotiation…?
Let me ask you this: If Opal can “defeat” Earl this quickly and this easily, what chance does he have in the future?
Crack that wipe , Opal !
Pushed his buttons
There is NO way to fight that logic.
“Hello, Grub hub? Dinner for one.”
Opal: 1. Earl: Zip.
Opal put up a chore list on the refrigerator for Earl. No work … No food .
Poor Roscoe…he looked so peaceful in that first panel, then boom!
I love this one today , the way that Roscoe is sleeping on Earls lap . Great stuff , thanks to Brian .
And remember, Earl, your aim in being in the basement is to clean it up, NOT just to go there. Hope Opal checks. . .
You’re a wimp,Earl. Even I can make a PB&J sandwich in a wife-snit emergency.
I’m just another iteration of the Earl syndrome. If it ain’t broke, don’t mess with it. If it ain’t in the way, it won’t hurt to just leave it. Garage sale, anyone?
Well, that’s that! Score another snarky remark to Opal!
My ex used to take everything out of the basement and move it to the garage. When asked to clean the garage, it used to all go in the basement. Meanwhile, I was cooking and baking all day. Ex did not want to trade jobs.
Keep in mind that Earl said he would be in the basement. He didn’t say he would actually do anything.
Never argue philosophy with the Philosophy Queen.
This comic is a repeat; I’ve had it on my fridge for a long time
Opal – reversal, two points! Opal – take-down, two points! Opal takes the match 4-0.
Withholding sex probably stopped working years ago.
We quickly discovered I was a better cook than my second wife. I had to clean up the basement before cooking dinner. :)
Sounds like Schrodinger’s cat may have come to stay in the basement.
“If momma ain’t happy, ain’t no one happy.”
Entropy never sleeps.
I still believe he has a hidden camera in our house.
Sure glad I don’t have a designated nagger, although I probably need one some times.
Earl and Opal have a nice house a beautiful daughter, great grand kid. two adorable pets. OBVIOUSLY their “division of duties”, work for them.
There are plenty of restaurants that would love to feed you Earl.
It is quite interesting. I’ll give it that
The basement is just going to get messy again. Leave the old man alone.
If Earl could cook, he wouldn’t need to clean the basement.
Panel #2 is my life’s motto.
blackmail is so distasteful…
