Oof. That hurts just to envision.
Meanwhile, the dog’s sitting there and rolling her eyes at them, wondering when they’ll ever put two with two… :P
There is another comic somewhere further ahead in which Garfield’s weight literally makes the whole 2nd panel bend and sag like this table.
See, what you do, is try and find a nice secluded place high up (say, a hilltop or the like), and watch the fireworks from there. In my experience, these sort of fireworks displays can usually be seen from such locations pretty well, regardless of how far away from the source you seem to be.
Then again, I also live in a far smaller town than this family, so…
…still, I would think it’s not be an unreasonable tactic to at least try.
Now my brain is considering the logistics of styling nose hairs.
…Thank you for that, girls.
…why do you keep questioning him on these things, Bleek? I mean, you live with this kid, have been for some years now, surely you have an idea by now how his brain works (or doesn’t work, depending on how you look at it).
Oh, don’t be like that, Spud—maybe, when you find him, he’ll invite you to join you in singing some ghost pirate shanties. :D
Apparently, he’s not a sci-fi fan, and has thusly been exiled from the conversation accordingly.
I actually can see him sitting to one side and rolling his eyes at all of this. :P
Well, I don’t know about the rest, but I’m absolutely in agreement with the Man about Star Wars. Trust someone who’s both a long-time lover of sci-fi and as someone who’s actually taken classes on the subject (yes, I actually took a class on it in college—one of the best classes I ever had :D)—Star Wars is really not that great of a sci-fi, but before you whip out those lightsabers, that’s largely because it doesn’t really intend to. It’s more focused on the spectacle and the adventure…it’s really more of an action/adventure movie that just happens to be set in space than anything else.
Not that this makes Star Wars “bad” or anything, of course. Personally, I wouldn’t call myself a Star Wars fan per se, but I have seen all of the films to date and was still able to enjoy them for what they are…and at the end of the day, that’s really what’s more important. :)
In all seriousness, Utahraptor’s got it in one—a large majority of the reason we find it gross is because it’s nature’s way of reminding our bodies to not mess with that stuff, as doing so would be generally bad for our continued health.
