I wish I had created this cartoon

December 12, 2012 — 124 Comments

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.

Stab

It speaks to me on a profoundly deep and meaningful level.

    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.”

    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…..

    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.

    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.

    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.

    What’s the misunderstanding? Isn’t that what you do to people without a watch?

    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.
