Yeah, it’s just a comic, and the joke’s pretty good. Still, there’s so much wrong with the message.
1.) Ending world hunger would cost upwards of $250 billion per year.
2.) Most world hunger is caused by bad government — more free speech would help fix that problem.
3.) Musk isn’t “spending” money on Twitter — he’s “investing it”. The money is changing hands, it isn’t being destroyed. The previous owners of Twitter made a ton of money on the deal — why don’t they buy cream pies for the hungry?
4.) Check out how much these other billionaires are spending (not investing) on superyachts. Why don’t they sell their toys and buy food for the hungry? https://www.superyachtfan.com/lists/richest-yacht-owners/
5.) What are opponents of free-speech trying to hide from us?
Jarvis’ expression in panel 4 is priceless. Well done Mr. Meddick
Poncho sees that Carmen is suffering from a bad case of toxoplasma gondii (the crazy-cat-lady disease).
I’m starting to become quite impressed by the number of variations on the old “talking dog” joke that Bollings has come up with. Does anyone have an exact count? Just when I think he’s pumped that well dry — there’s another one. It would be interesting to see a compilation.
It works very well for many people but doesn’t seem to work well if other medications are the cause of sleeplessness. I take it nightly, so I experimented a bit to find the smallest effective dosage.
This strip would have been more plausible if Monty had taken something like Ambien. Melatonin works wonders for many people (me included), but your body (re)absorbs it quickly when the lights are on. You’re supposed to take it just before turning out the lights and getting into bed. That rapid reversibility is one of the best features of melatonin. After-effects only last a few minutes, after you’re exposed to strong lights.
It’s about time that Betty said something nice about Bub’s project. Spouses are supposed to be supportive of one another. A hand-made bookcase might become a family heirloom. A store-bought mass-produced bookcase is just furniture.
Next week, Bub will just sit on the couch drinking beer and eating chips. Betty will wonder why.
Alternatively, one can unclog a phone by going to “Settings” and doing a “Factory data reset” (That’s how it’s done on Android phones — I don’t know how to do it on Apple phones). Of course, you have to save everything you want to keep first.
