Serverless Restaurant

So databases can be serverless but restaurants really shouldn't be. I mean, you can do a lot with screens and such but someone still needs to prepare the food and deliver it in some way.

A: Why did Amazon's restaurant fail?
B: It was serverless.

So my work hosted an Amazon class and we learned about their services, including DynamoDB. I have trouble focusing when there's a word so close to dinosaur. I think this database could really take off. But it might seem a bit archaic.

A: All these newfangled databases are just confusing. Store your data the same way you always have with DynoDB!

Butterfly Garden

For our anniversary this year we went back to where we had our honeymoon. And we went back to visit the Victoria Butterfly Garden just like we did ten years ago! It was very nice. No awkward questions were asked. I like all the butterflies and they have birds there too! Butterfly gardens are very relaxing.

H: Welcome to the Butterfly Garden! Do you have any questions?
L: How long after planting -
M: NOPE no questions.

Roughly the Size of a Barge

I'm not sure why one would describe their ideal man like that, but whatever floats your boat :) :) :)
I had a weird dream this one time in college and it was all about barges and the day before my roommate had been playing Disney music loudly in our dorm room.

Belle: How would you describe your ideal husband?
Claudette: Roughly the size of a barge.
Belle: ... oh.

Aladdin Song

I think the way the Genie sings it in the new version, it comes across as slightly sarcastic. I think adding that pause before 'definitely' really does it. I could have added a fez to Aladdin, he is known for wearing one. Or rather he would be Prince Ali at this point so he'd need fancy clothes and a turban if I recall correctly. I liked the remake of the classic. I think the Disney movies with humans, like all the princess movies, can handle a live-action remake. I am not a fan of the animal ones which have to be completely CG'd being remade - I like the classic animation better.

J: You're as strong as ten regular men.
J: Definitely.

Leaf It Alone

This comic was inspired by an incident at work where I went to get a cup of tea and someone had mixed in decaf plain tea bags into the regular plain tea box and I ended up with a decaf and was not pleased. Now I know to check more closely (or just use my own tea supply from my desk). Tea is tasty. It does not need dairy or sugar or any extra flavorings if brewed properly. I like it.
Also, happy belated birthday to my grandmother! She always brews a pot of water for me when I visit because nearly everyone else drinks coffee. Such is life in New England.

A: I have a GREAT idea to upgrade tea.
B: Leaf it alone.

In a stunning move, the Octobear has appeared! But wait, there's also the Novembear! What will happen? Nobody knows.
I don't think the Novembear will become a popular reoccurring character because he was a bit difficult to draw and also he's kinda odd (but that doesn't always stop characters from reoccurring).

Octobear (bear with eight tentacles)
Novembear (bear with turkey feathers on his rump and a snood on his snout)

I Treasure You

Well, you shouldn't do that. Don't lock anything living inside a trunk, even if it's a treasure chest. That's not the way to treasure someone. Actually treating a person as treasure is usually not a good plan; you should treat them like people, not objects.

Lady: Why did you lock me in that chest?!?
Pirate: I treasure you.

Recreating the Problem, Then and Now

I thought this up when I got excited that I could recreate a bug. Back in the day (Exodus 7 and 8), the magicians of Pharaoh were able to recreate the first two plagues that God through Moses brought on Egypt, but were unable to recreate the next eight. I forgot where in the line they were unable to reproduce them, so I drew a nice picture with the magicians holding flies, gnats, and a frog but then had to redraw it since they could only do the water-into-blood and the frogs.

Then (Magicians holding a bowl of blood and a frog)
Magicians: Oh great Pharaoh, we too can multiply frogs and blood!
Pharaoh face-palming.
Now (Programmer in front of a computer with a Blue Screen Of Death on it)
Programmer: The good news is - I can recreate the problem.
Boss with arms crossed.

Pumpkin Eater

That probably means he keeps his wife in a pumpkin shell, but apparently he can keep her very well there? I think that is odd and not a good housing situation.
I like how my pumpkin pie turned out, I am not sure I have ever actually baked a pumpkin pie.

Man eating a slice of pumpkin pie.
Lady: You're a pumpkin eater?!?

As a disclaimer, I have had this comic on the board for a while now (just like the talk of impeachment has been going on for a while now) and I am not trying to make a political statement with this, I just like that impeach contains the word "peach" and "im" is very close to "I'm" so I think this works well.

Peach holding sign: "Impeach!"
Apple holding sign: "I'm apple"

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.

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!

{fish to crab}: Quit being so shellfish!

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.

{blue fish to puffer fish}: You need to be more humble!

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.

{fish to sea horse}: Quit horsing around!
