Upset Stomach


I hope you all are well and not getting the Flu - I had that last year and it was horrible. Any time there's internal duress, it is horrible. Also panic attacks are bad, whether it's your cardiac system or digestive.

Text:
A: Could you please stop using the term "internal duress"? It's gross.
B: ... So then my tummy had a panic attack.

Reaching for a Fraction of a Birthday


Thought this up today and it's appropriate because how else would you celebrate your 7/12 birthday? It definitely involves reaching. And maybe some hot cocoa. Maybe I'll go make some.

Text:
M: You are really reaching for that gift.
L: Well, it is my seven-twelfths birthday!
M: Ah, that explains it.

Pets That Could Outlive You


I thought this up after hearing how long some parrots live. Turtles also have very long lives. Venomous snakes may not live super song, but ... can shorten yours. Oh, cobras can live like twenty years so that's a rather long living pet. Which shouldn't be a pet - that's a deadly animal that should be left in the wild.

Dim Sum


I have never had dim sum, and I'm not sure if I want to after hearing some people describe it. But others really like it, so maybe it is good. Speaking of people who like it, Happy Birthday to my Mom-in-Law!
There's a character in A Bug's Life who was a beetle named Dim and he was nice but... not the brightest.

Text:
F: Can they brighten the lighting in this Asian restaurant?
M: No, it's dim sum.

Trickster Tricked


Drawing finger guns was interesting. Leah had a rough life cut out for her. Jacob tricked so many people, when he got tricked he shouldn't have been surprised.

Text:
Genesis 29:25
L: The trickster has become the tricked!
J: Worst. Dad-in-Law. Ever.

Jacob's Ladder


It is hard to draw parallel lines and also perpendicular ones. I have seen many interpretations of Jacob's ladder but I believe who was on it was more awe-inspiring than the actual ladder.

Text:
Genesis 28:10-22
J: Awesome!

Esau Serving Jacob


This isn't the service that it's talking about but in a recent church small group meeting we were looking for service activities and volleyball, tennis, and the like were suggested. Also doing something during the 11am service. Yeah, our suggestions were rejected.


Text:
Genesis 25:23
E: Service!
J: Ok big brother.

Code Boxing


So my work is a little stressful currently but I have a punching bag at home and it's a great stress relief to just let out some aggression on my punching bag. Sometimes the tests just don't pass and you didn't even touch that code over there. Actually cardio boxing is great for multiple reasons but stress relief is a top one.

Text:
*POW* *WHAP* *THWAP*
M: Wow, rough day?
L: Code won't compile.

Donkey Kong


It's my sister's birthday so HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUUUUUUU!
Since this comic is about a dog toy, you should get a dog! If your kid is allergic, there are hair-less dogs but NOPE never mind those just look wrong. Maybe go for a hypo-allergenic one - there are some cuties like a GIANT SCHNAUZER! Oh, the hairless ones are there, too. Pay them no mind.
I'm quite happy with coming up with this pun. I should sell the idea to Kong but then they might need Nintendo licensing and who knows how that would go. Even if it was a real thing, probably not an appreciated gift to a video gamer friend.

UPDATE: I submitted my idea to the Kong Company. Hopefully I have brightened someone's day.

Text:
B: Why did you get me a little red horse? It's a dog toy.
G: IT'S A DONKEY KONG!

Jonah


My pastor went through a series in Jonah and it's really good so you should check it out on Sermon Audio! The fish colors are a little inspired by a Pixar movie. We went to Sight & Sound when they did Jonah and it was a really good production that helped bring the story to life! I recommend going to see their shows. 

Text:
B: I just want my kid to be great!
O: Well, we can't all swim around swallowing wayward prophets.

And a bonus comic based on my childhood of watching Veggie Tales! Wow, looking up the Jonah movie enlightened me so much - did not realize Phil Vischer voiced half of the cast and Relient K sang the classic song "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything." Also, while my pastor has been preaching on Jonah, I got the song "Second Chances" stuck in my head and couldn't remember where it was from but now I know! It's this movie.

Arugula to Mars


DID YOU KNOW that the lettuce 'arugula' is called 'rocket' across the pond in England? I found this out when reading a British recipe and the next step was 'add one cup of rocket' and I was super confused. I really like arugula - it has a nice peppery flavour (ha ha, going British there).

Text:
S: This beautifully coloured arugula will get us to Mars!

Loner Hornets


So this one time my husband opened a dresser drawer which is used every day and a hornet flew out and it was super unexpected and this comic happened. It has only happened once. I don't know where he loaned it from.

Text:
L: Did you check for hornets?
M: No, that last one was a loner.
L: Who did you loan it from and why?

Linguistics Society


Did you know there are word pairs where we just use the one half but technically the other side is still a word but it's become archaic? These are called Unpaired Words and I find this fascinating.

Text:
L: How are we feeling today, folks?
Crowd: Corrigible.
Kempt.
Couth.
Whelmed.
Gruntled.
Ruly.

Unicorn vs Capricorn


I know next to nothing about astrology, but I'm pretty sure that's not what a Capricorn is. But I like it - a nifty way for a horse to be more than a horse while not quite attaining the level of unicorn.

Text:
U: Are you a unicorn like me?
H: No, I'm a Capricorn.

Blended Sayings


Well, maybe? The sayings are "The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step" and "death by a thousand cuts" so I figured they could be combined. Neither of those thousands sounds pleasant.

Text:
A: You know what they say about the journey of a thousand miles -
B: It starts with a single cut?
