Every year, my resolution is to give up smoking. Which is easier than you’d think, given I’ve never smoked in the first place…
Honestly I wish there was a law that said that anyone screaming “GET IN THE HOLE!!!” at a golfing event is fair game for a beating.
Hey, Caulfield: ask Frazz how many cycling jerseys he owns, he can only wear one at a time. How many bikes does he own? He can only ride one at a time. Pairs of running shoes? What about how many books do you own?
How about instead of mercilessly torturing people you choose to not understand, try a little #$ empathy. And less glee at yet another “hee hee, lets mock overweight people” gag.
(Like Jessica Rabbit used to say, though – “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way.”)
Hah. Try moving out here to California, Katy. We’re now annually PRAYING for the end of summer so we can see some rain that’ll HOPEFULLY put an end to yet another cataclysmic drought and give Cal Fire a breather from trying to stop the entire state turning into a flaming hellscape.
(But remember folks, climate change isn’t real!)
Just so we’re clear: You’re saying that if a child arbitrarily gets up in the middle of class, saunters up to the blackboard, starts putting hashmarks on it, and when the teacher calls them on it, the child admits that they’re doing it to deliberately annoy them – then the issue lies with the teacher being upset?
This is one of those strips where Caulfield’s devotees see that the excuse of “He’s just a misunderstood, bored, precocious prodigy that isn’t being challenged enough” doesn’t cover his cheerful admission that he does things intentionally to upset his teacher, so needs to be upgraded to “its just a comic strip, don’t take it too seriously” mode.
And he’s right?
For once I agree with Mallet. Given that he lives in Michigan, “specifying which” would end up with an attempted visit/kidnapping from Meal Team Six and the Gravy Seals.
Even though I’ve lived here for over 20 years, I still can’t get my head around the American obsession with being “the best.” I mean, I take pride in what I do for a living, but my greatest accomplishment will always be my family and friends. Years from now, on our death beds when we look back over our lives, I can’t imagine thinking “I wish my career had gone just a bit better.”
As amazing as she is, I don’t think she’d win against any of the “big three” of Federer, Nadal, or Djokovich.
