Ever So Extremely


A great way to discredit someone is to call them a conspiracy theorist. But the label is correct for some people. I once looked into the Flat Earth Society because I was curious how people could think that way, but wow was I surprised. There are people who think their crazy platform is normal and we are crazy to not be on it. This segues nicely into talk about political platforms and how some candidates espouse extreme positions that they tout as just decent and common sense. Actually that seems to be most candidates currently. And this is why it's important to curate your social media feeds. You don't want an echo chamber, where everyone is saying the same thing since that leads to extreme beliefs being seen as normal, but you don't want to get discouraged or disheartened by viewing your feeds. It's a balance. In a rather unbalanced world.

A: What's up with him?
B: He's ever so extremely a conspiracy theorist.

How the Kids Speak


This will make you hip with the kids. Actually they might recoil in horror, but that could be what you're going for so who knows. I kinda want to try it out on the kids in the ministry I work in on Fridays. Results may vary.

Text:
A: How should I respond when a kid says their wig has been snatched?
B: That's totes fleek and hip, now fidget-spin away, you silly band.

Jeanealogy


My pastor was doing a series through the early life of Christ (it has completed and we're now in a Ruth series), and when he was going through the Genealogy in Matthew I thought this up. I know there are sooooooo many more types of jeans, but there are only a few that are easily distinguishable via my comic style. Now if only they could make jeans for females with pockets that fit more than a chapstick...

Happy Valentine's Day


I had this idea before Christmas but didn't get around to making it until now. I'm sure there are other holidays I could add, but I just did some of the most popular ones.

The holidays are here!

Sleep Walking Skills



I do some dog watching as a way to get the joy of having a dog but not have to get up early every day for the next ten years and go walking regardless of weather (except for like a week at a time which is doable). I don't feel like saying you do something in your sleep is a marker of your skill in doing said task, as that's done by your sub-conscience and you aren't really in control.

Text:
L: *dog on leash* Tell me about your walking skills.
D: So good, I can do it in my sleep. Involuntarily.

Better World



Happy belated Birthday to my niece! Several of my nieces and nephews really like reading and I think that's an excellent hobby!
This is slightly inspired by the Owl City song "The Real World" which says "Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't want to live there."

Text:
M: Don't you want to explore the world?!
J: *holding book* I am.
M: The real world!
J: No, this one is better.

E-Legal


I forget where I thought this up but I was thinking about notepads and how to make electronic ones OH it was at our Sunday School class when we were talking about how to make a brain-storm board and we were talking about going super technical or just putting sticky notes on the wall (we went with the latter).

Text:
M: Why hasn't anyone made an electronic legal pad?
L: Sounds e-legal.

Beau Arrow


I saw someone had named their kid Arrow and I thought this up. I'm always suggesting names for my sisters' and sister-in-laws' kids but they don't take them. So I make comics instead.

Text:
F: What's your beau's name?
M: Arrow!

Cymbalically


Usually things are done symbolically but why not use cymbals. It's more climatic? Definitely more dramatic that way.

Text:
*CLANG*
N: What is all that noise?
*CLANG*
M: My wife is cymbalically doing something.
