I’ve had this cartoon for more than 20 years. Way before The Oatmeal, way before xkcd.com. I have no idea where it came from, but it’s a masterpiece.
It speaks to me on a profoundly deep and meaningful level.
Absolutely a simple misunderstanding! Meanwhile, bring on the next post.
Misunderstandings happen, right, Frank? What can you do?
That’s what makes it so funny!
bwahahahhahahaha…uh oh that cartoon let some evil out. very funny.
Hello, chubbymermaid! Welcome! Isn’t that a great cartoon? It really resonates with me. And you too, obviously. 😉
Stop being so wordy. You don’t have to ramble on that way all the time.
Oh dear. Then you must not like any of my comments or posts. My friend commented that he enjoyed my choice diction and verbosity…
Nonsense! Meizac and I go way back—I’m just busting her chops. Talk away, Vyvy!
Haha, why thanks!
You’re such a romantic.
It’s true. It’s warm fuzzy sentiments like the ones expressed in this cartoon that melt my cold, cold heart.
Nice! I usually don’t wait for them to start talking.
I just figure they were going to ask for that anyway…
That’s good thinking, Guap. I should just start stabbing away. I learn so much from you.
Moral: Spend $30 and get a cheap watch.
It’s just safer for all involved, Carl.
You had an analogue meeting?
Ha! This made me LOL, TAE.
‘Tis only true…glad to have made ya LOL though, analogously I hope.
Consider this my digital representation of my analog laughing! 😀
Man to wife as they sit at the dining table:
“You’ve ruined my life you blood-sucking shrew … Oh, I’m sorry. I meant, would you please pass the salt.”
BTW. Love the Oatmeal 🙂
I love that one! I’ll have to share it with Mr. Weebles—I suspect he’ll relate to it. 😉
Yeah…I see what you mean….
Right? It’s so easy to make that sort of mistake sometimes.
I hope you’re not holding an umbrella during our outing to watch all the women you flip off magically gain ten pounds. I feel a Kevlar Christmas present coming on…..
You would be completely safe, I assure you, Poly. 😀
😀 Good to know!!
The first time I saw that on your fridge I knew I had better be on my toes around you.
And not just because you might stab me repeatedly because of a simple misunderstanding. Because you’re so damn funny.
AWWW! Just for that I’ll put my umbrella away tonight.
Hilarious and disturbing on so many levels. Yet another insight into your sense of humor and mine. Many years ago, a dear friend said: “Humor is one of the highest forms of intelligence.” Thanks for making me laugh, Weebs.
My pleasure, Cathy—I love that your sense of humor is twisted too. 🙂
That is so funny, but I’m a little worried about you. Have you considered anger management?
You know, it’s funny that you should mention this, Robin. Someone suggested that I go to anger management. I went to one meeting, but they only had decaf coffee and IT REALLY PISSED ME OFF. So I didn’t go back.
That cartoon really speaks to me! The message is crystal-clear and I will model my life on that message!
It’s like the cartoonist was looking right into our souls, right, Bennie??
I could so relate to this cartoon. I get stabby all the time.
You and I will have to hang out one day and wield our umbrellas at people.
Sounds like a plan.
What’s the misunderstanding? Isn’t that what you do to people without a watch?
Oh, my soul brother. I heart you.
And it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. It’s a wonderful feeling.
He kept a smile throughout the killing. That’s all you can really ask for.
I know a comedian whose first joke every time I saw him, probably for the last 25 years even, was “Quick impression of a New Yorker asking for privacy….HELP!!!!” Then he stands there and it takes a little time to sink in how sad yet true that statement is.
Service with a smile, that’s the way to go. As for the yelling “HELP!” thing, well, hey, we’re just respecting the need for space in this crowded city. It’s important to honor someone’s right to be murdered without interference.
Stab first, before questions are answered.
That’s my policy too. It’s just good sense.
