Oct Tuber


We are over halfway through October and the Octobear hasn't show up yet but here's a new character, the Oct-Tuber! Or rather, one of the Oct-Tubers. Will the Octobear show up? Only time will tell.
Did you know that potatoes are tubers but carrots are roots, there is a difference? The more you know.

Text:
Carrot: I hear you have seven siblings.
Potato: Yep, I'm one of the Oct-Tubers.

Shellfish Crab


But the crab is just being who he was made to be! I think this pun series might have been sparked by a sermon comment about humility (based on the previous comic) and I just went off on a tangent (as I am known to do with my comics).
We are halfway through October and the infamous OctBear has not show up yet! Where could he be? Could someone be struggling to create another octo-pun? That's a distinct possibility.
Speaking of halfway through October, Happy Birthday to my brother-in-law!

Puffed Up


I have only seen a puffer fish in the wild once, and that was when one washed up on Pensacola Beach :( I have seen them a few times in aquariums but I'm not sure I've ever seen one puffed up. Now I want to YouTube that. You should too. It'll be educational.
That fish is not being loving because I learned from I Corinthians 13 that charity doth not puff up.

Horsing Around


I don't know what sparked this string of sea life puns, but there's gonna be a few more.
The blue fish has had enough of the tomfoolery of his friend, and I'm amazed that I spelled tomfoolery correctly on the first try. It is rather phonetic, which is always nice.

Buck Tooth Comb


Ah, the classic mistake of using the buck-tooth comb instead of the fine-tooth one. Anyone can make it. Actually, that would be one of those "what do we even HAVE this?" situations. (I'm referring to the excellent scene in "The Emperor's New Groove" where Yzma exclaims "Why do we even HAVE that lever?!") I would like the buck-tooth comb to come up in a CSI show. I am waiting on offers, please contact me if you'd like to use it :)

Text:
C: How did you miss this detail?!
D: We went over the evidence with a buck-tooth comb.

Bibbity Bobbity Reboot


Sometimes all it takes is turning it off and on again. Sometimes. I read somewhere that telling someone to go to bed and see if they feel better in the morning is the human equivalent of that. But both will solve a multitude of issues.

Text:
A: How did you fix my computer? Magic?!?
B: Bibbity Bobbity Reboot.

Crunching Numbers


We went on a trip in September to the West Coast and we went on a wildlife tour and saw orca dorsal fins in the distance (which still was pretty cool). We also saw other wildlife and it was a great boat ride.

Text:
O: Accountant, stop eating the calculators!
S: I'm crunching the numbers!

Bananagrams


I like the game Bananagrams. I don't want a banana that has been sent through the mail to me. That would be a bruised mess. But I suppose if you can send a properly postmarked potato through the post, you could also do the same for a banana. But Bananagrams is not a millennial form of telegram, it is rather a jumbled form of Scrabble. You should play it - it't a great party game.
Also, Happy Birthday Eve to my nephew!

Text:
A: Who is sending you all these bananas?
B: My friend who doesn't understand how to play Bananagrams.

Table of Content


It's October!
My brother-in-law was stateside for the summer and preached a message on Contentment - you can find it here. This was my comical takeaway, but he had some good points. There is always something for which to be grateful. It probably won't all fit in that table.
(Sufficient and adequate are synonyms for content, which sounds like content, which when in table form is the list of chapters in a book)
I think my handwriting is a little messier on this one, and you'll see some more messy ones unless I go in and clean them up but they aren't that bad, because I was drawing comics on the train ride home from CT recently. It was mostly smooth but it is land travel so there are bumps along the road (or rather train track).

Text:
A: I put all of the sufficient and adequate things into this table.
B: It's your table of content.

Cinderella's Coach


I thought this up after buying tickets to travel somewhere (probably CT) and I don't upgrade because it's a short trip and I'm not a large person so the tiny space is fine usually. Speaking of travel, head over to my other blog to see my thoughts on two popular ways to travel.
Also, happy birthday eve to my oldest little brother! Welcome to your twenties.

Text:
C: I'm tired of riding coach. When can I upgrade?

Whine and Dine


I forgot where I thought this up but it would be an unfortunate mistake to make. Also, it's difficult to draw stick figures seated in chairs. I did my best, because that's the best I can do. I like how it turned out. Found another typo when typing out the text below - totally thought flaky had an 'e' before the 'y' but it indeed does not.

Text:
Title: Whine and Dine
M: I hate my commute, and all my friends are flaky, and politics make me sad, and ...
W: I thought it was a typo but I was WRONG!

Drums vs Horses


We watched Netflix's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" and, while I can't recommend the series as a whole, they did have an episode with a school team whose mascot was a dead horse because they couldn't be beat and it inspired this comic.
I am a fan of the local team, the Ravens, especially their kicker who is the best ever and can sing opera because that's a cool skill that most athletes don't have, and I am not a fan of either of the teams depicted in this comic.
Note - I did not know Pittsburgh had an 'h' in it and discovered that when typing the text below. Had to go in and edit the comic to fix that, glad it was caught before posting.
Also, Happy Birthday to my Grandpa! I went up for the weekend for his surprise party.

Text:
Sports Announcer: The Pittsburgh Broken Drums play the Foxborough Dead Horses, and both teams are certain they can't be beat.

Most Wonderful Time


I really love this time of year. September is my favorite month. Not only is it my birthday month, but also I grew up in New England which means it's the beginning of sweater weather and all things comfy and also The Big E (basically a state fair but for all of New England) and it's time to go to orchards and corn maizes and all the leaves change color and it's just an overall enjoyable time. Also I really like winter so this means we're getting close to that which makes it even better.

*singing* It's the MOST WONDERFUL TIME of the year!!!

Tenth Commandment


My pastor at FBC is currently going through a series on the Ten Commandments, and I remembered these hand motions that my pastor at TBC back in CT taught me as a kid.

The tenth commandment is: "You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor." - Exodus 20:17 (ESV)

The hand motion is: both hands open then both hands closed, like you're grabbing for something that isn't yours (such as your neighbor's ox or his xbox).

In summary:
1- One God
2- No Idols
3- Watch your Words
4- Honor the Sabbath
5- Honor your Parents
6- No Murder
7- No Adultery
8- No Stealing
9- No Lying
10- No Coveting

I hope this helps you remember the Ten Commandments!

Toucan or Toucan't


Taking another little break from the Ten Commandments series because it's my birthday! I thought this one up after I made that peliCAN one for my mom - this one is a more tropical theme. I'm sure there are more animals out there with this pun in their name - maybe I'll continue this series later.

T: Are you a touCAN or a touCAN'T?
I: I'm an I-do-what-I-want.
