Bridle Shower

I thought this up for a friend's bridal shower but I got her proper gifts from her registry, as those would be more appreciated than horse tackle. It's like bringing flours to a floral party - depending on the person, punny can be appropriate but you really have to know them. And even then, still don't turn life into a joke. Maybe. But make a punny card.

J: Why did you get me a saddle and stirrups and spurs?
L: You said it was a bridle shower!

Aladdin's Jams

We went to see the new Aladdin movie with our two oldest nieces and it was a nice time. The remake didn't stray too far from the original material, and the music was nice. The costuming was vibrant and I think they did a good job of casting but that's always a hotly debated topic. I think the Disney movies with humans as main characters can be improved with a live-action remake, but I'm not a huge fan of the animal ones getting remade. I am a rather big fan of traditional animation - I like sketching and I like the look of hand-drawn cartoons/comics :)

I love you more than Aladdin loves jams

Blessing Deep Undercover

Another take on the blessing-in-disguise outfit, but this time going further. Some bad situations (like getting robbed) could be seen in hindsight as a blessing when considering the bigger picture, maybe?

R: I'm a blessing in disguise.
I: You look like a robber.
R: I'm deep undercover.

My brother had this idea so I drew it out. It would be all duck on the menu, with the deer as spokes-animals advertising to Eat More Duck. I'm not sure how the price of duck compares to the price of chicken in the deep woods, but maybe they're close?

Deer holding sign: EAT MOR DUK
Subtext: Duck-Fil-A, coming to a backwoods near you!

I took all math for my math/science electives in college, so I don't know much about physics, but I don't think that's how it works. But we are physical, so maybe...
My college changed the Software Engineering requirements after I graduated and made the electives just science so I guess I was using a loophole to avoid all science classes in college (I didn't take a single one). Science is great and all but I don't overly enjoy it (I did enjoy parts of it, and I had a great teacher in high school who made it interesting).

A: Physics uses lots of math, and we use lots of math, therefore we are partially physical.
B: *Ow* (holding head)

Foolish Man's Housing Choice

This is inspired by the end of my pastor's sermon on Luke 6:20-49. For those who don't know the song, the wise man built his house upon the rock and it survived the storm. But the foolish man built his house upon the sand and the house on the sand went SPLAT. The benefits of the beach-front property should be outweighed by the fact that it won't survive the oncoming storm. I liked drawing the stone foundation as an actual massive boulder because that's how I always saw it in my head as a kid and actually still currently.

**Looking at the house on the rock**
A: Nah, I like the beach-front property better.

Geometric Working an Angle

This was derived (haha) from the last comic which was extrapolated from a sermon titled "Plain Speech" which was not about math at all but I made the connection on my own. I don't know if I've used my protractor since graduation but there's a slim chance I have, in some sort of craft. But I cannot recall which one that would be. It's always good to have some math tools around in case.... I'm not sure what but surely there'd be a reason. Maybe I just can't part with them.

Also, Happy Father's Day to the best Dad and Dad-in-Law! I'm grateful for all that you've done for me and my man, and also specifically thankful for the love of math I got from my Dad.

Ruler: You're always working an angle!
Protractor: ...yes.

Geometric Straight Talk

Our pastor preached on the second half of Luke 6 and titled his sermon "Plain Speech" and that inspired this comic. You should listen to his sermon series on Luke - it is good.
I've used my compass a few times since finishing school because it's helpful with Pinterest crafts that require circles. I remember learning all the ways to use it in high school and I don't recall if I ever needed it in college, even with my math minor, but I'm glad I kept it so I could make an awesome unicorn birthday card for my niece.

Pencil: Give it to me straight!
Compass: I can't.

I haven't bothered to look up any sayings about assumptions, but I'm sure there are plenty from which to choose. I prefer to just quote this comic. Feel free to do the same. Maybe it'll become a phrase someday that people say and when they look up where it came to be, they'll find this comic. I'd appreciate that.

A: You know what they say about assumptions.
B: No, what?
A: I don't know, but surely there is a saying.

Day of Rest

This is extrapolated from a sermon in Luke 6 - it's an extrapolation that I made on my own and is not (as far as I know) supported by anyone at my church (we have a Keurig there with plenty of coffee options). I purposefully made the coffee thermos that big because that's how I feel about coffee addicts (it is about the height of her torso). To be fair, I do drink a black tea in the morning and I enjoy the little boost of caffeine. But I drink it black because I actually enjoy the taste of my beverage (Earl Grey, sometimes double bergamot).

A: Sunday is the day of rest.
L: Yes.
A: Therefore, no caffeine.
L: No.

So this is also from the same sermon as the last but is based on a comment unrelated to the passage, and I actually don't remember why it came up but my pastor didn't know what mohair was and I looked it up because I knew it was a type of yarn but I was thinking it was camel hair. It's actually from goats and is highly prized. Maybe someday I'll crochet with it.

L: Mohair, mo' problems, am I right?

Taxer of Patience

This is also from the same sermon as the last comic but more extrapolated, as this is a blend of what Jesus had said to the fishers he recruited rather than to the tax collector of His group. Here is the passage as well. To be clear, this is historical fiction, emphasis on the fiction as I'm fairly certain this didn't happen. We don't have a play-by-play however, so the possibility exists that it could have happened.

J: I will make you fishers of men.
M: Can I be a taxer of men?
J: No.
M: Can I be a taxer of patience?
J: Apparently yes.

Refuse the Answer

Here's the sermon from which this was inspired.
Our pastor is doing a sermon series in Luke and has been preaching his way through and I recommend listening to any of his sermons in the series (or any of his sermons in general but I was staying on topic). My thoughts come out in comics a lot, even (especially) when listening to sermons.
In the passage noted, Jesus had healed a man by saying his sins were forgiven, and the religious leaders had this response, and Jesus did not have the response in this comic but it's more of a paraphrase.

Also, totally unrelated to the comic but it is related to the day, IT'S FRIDGE DAY! The day we remember when my mom got a new fridge and panicked.

P: Who can forgive sins, but God alone?!
J: You put 2 and 2 together but refuse 4 as the answer.
