Sure Thing Babydoll


So this is close to a true story - my amazing husband and I went to Assateague and Chincoteague and between the two we stopped at a little diner for lunch and the waitress was very Southern and used the dialogue above but Mark did not respond wittily because he was just confounded with the greeting. Also I don't remember what he ordered but I got the shrimp and fries and they were good.

Gyro Worship


Here's a link to the passage. Yes, this is inspired by a sermon I heard at my church. The sermon is up on my church's SermonAudio, and this was not the main passage but he referenced it. I also was reminded of how to say gyro. Per the lyrics, gyro is pronounced "yeer-o" as in "No more fear-o, you’re a hero, cuz now I know it’s yeer-o!"
There's a lot of links in that paragraph, but so many things are referencing other things.

Haircut


My husband looked at this (I just gave him a haircut) and said "nope, that's not how that works." I kinda want to try this at a salon, but then you're messing with someone who can really make the next few weeks unbearable depending on what they do, so maybe don't try this.
This one time we were at an Orioles game and they have a player named Adam Jones and there was a little clip with a jingle "Adam Jones gives a fan a haircut" and he just buzzed a line across a guy's head and said "You got Jones'd" and it was memorable.

Intense Job


Some of my sister-in-laws are nurses and I'm sure they've never heard this one before. I am also sure someone else has most likely covered it in some way, but I wanted to put my own spin on it (especially after holding it in every time I ask my sis-in-law how her job is going). My sister found a cute comic with the pun "Peek-a-boo ICU" and it was a good one but it was just a picture and not a link so I don't know where it is now. Somewhere on Facebook, but where.

Name for the Order


Will someone be so bold as to try this?
We are reading through the Bible in a year and in Numbers and Deuteronomy they keep mentioning Og of Bashan. Wikipedia has quite a bit to say about him - including an anecdote about his bed. That seems very random to me, but it is interesting.

Motivational Oil


I thought of this while finally folding a load of laundry that had stayed in the basket for a few days. Folding laundry is loads of fun. It helps that I have a few favorite dinosaur t-shirts that I like to wear so I have to finish the laundry to get them back, but my dinosaur t-shirt collection is growing (I found this out when we had a week-long vacation and I was able to pack only dino shirts - it was awesome) so I have plenty to cycle through before running out.

Gaveling for Attention


They think they can just make rulings on matters in which they aren't involved! And they just excuse themselves from matters in which they are involved?
But it is true that if you call someone judgmental, then you yourself are being judgmental. I also realized I had misspelled judgmentally in the comic because I thought it had an extra 'e' as in judgementally but the wonders of spell check in this comment helped me out so I went back and edited the comic so no one would know. I think I did a pretty good job with it.

Humble Pie


We were talking about humility in Sunday morning and my teacher was saying how yielding to the Holy Spirit requires humility and I was truly trying to focus but sometimes I just think in comics and this happened. But it is a conundrum - how to complement someone's humility. I wonder what humble pie would taste like, would it be sweet or savory or am I thinking too much about this instead of absorbing the lesson on humility? Who knows.

Regression Tests


Regression tests are a good thing. They ensure backwards compatibility, so when we make new software features it ensures we didn't break any of the old things. But it is annoying to make the new wine fit into the old wineskins. But constantly changing the wineskins is also annoying. I think I've taken this metaphor too far. Any puzzle piece will fit if you try hard enough?

Legend of Zelda BotW


This is a pun on the Zora (shark people) in the Zelda video game, specifically two characters in Breath of the Wild, which is a very fun game that my Mark and I have been playing for a while. The designers did an excellent job making a very detailed world that is very fun to explore (or you can complete quests if you so desire).
I highly enjoy highly enjoying an activity with my man, and it is truly a blessing that we have so many common interests and can have fun together, whether it is playing a game or doing an extreme winter sport or exploring a new travel location or cooking an adventurous meal.

Radio Killed the Video Star


Wow, someone should make a song about this.
Disclaimer: this is a pun on an old song, and is not related to any particular star.
There are a few channels I like to peruse on YouTube - Binging With Babish, Good Mythical Morning, and Studio C are probably my top ones. The food created on BWB is super tasty and you can learn some good cooking techniques. The food created on GMM is usually terrible and not to be tried at home, but also they have some good blind taste tests and so much random content. Studio C is clean comedy and some of the sketches are truly hilarious every time I watch them, such as Embarrassing Favorite TV Show and Diabetes Intervention.

Litterally Trash


Don't litter! Unless you're using the previous comic's version of the word and want to just make a batch of something, in which case that's fine provided it's cookies or something good like that.

Litterally a Dozen


Because they have their kids (kittens) in litters! Do they take their kids litterally? Can I make litterally any more puns? Well, wait for Thursday :) Can we make litterally a word that means by the batch, so like I litterally made cookies yesterday or my dog just litterally had her puppies? I think that'd be a much cooler word than whatever the current slang terms are.

Tater Totchos


Have you ever had tater tot-chos? Think taco salad, but with tater tots instead of tortilla chips as the base. Here's a recipe! They are very good and great for a big dinner party or a small dinner for two or really any occasion.

Flying Sauces


Who wouldn't want to see a condiment circus? I mean, it could be interesting? I didn't include purple ketchup because I just remembered that was a thing a one point. There really aren't that many condiments. Unless you start thinking through the sauces at Chick-Fil-A because they have lots but let's face it, most people just get CFA sauce. It's so tasty.
