G: Yes.
B: Should you marry me?
G: Doubtful.
B: May you marry me?
G: Unclear?

Carson and Family

 Enable images please

My brother came up with this one when I was telling him about these kid-sized chairs I got for free but they had names embroidered on them (one of which was Carson) so I put some iron-on patches over the names and presto no more not-my-kid's-names! They looks really nice, the butterfly chair and the dino chair. 

Explanation: Carson is a normal name but also a compound word of vehicle (car) plus child (son). Another name that could follow this pattern would be Traindaughter (and Planechild in the mouseover).

A: These are my kids, Carson and Traindaughter.
B: *silent confusion*
C+T: *silent resignation*

Price of Love

 enable images please

... But you really should cap how much money you pour into a vehicle. That's what I did, anyway, which led me to sell my beloved first car rather than get the transmission repaired. She just wouldn't start one morning and it was very sad. I had already been gently car perusing, so it wasn't a total shock and I had some options lined up fairly quickly. And I loved my second car! 

L: I loved my first car!
M: How much money did you spend on repairs?
L: You can't put a price on love!

Discontinued Renegade

 enable images please

Sadly my beloved Jeep was hit and totaled (we are fine, thank the Lord), so I am now searching for the next love of my car life. And I have a twinge of sadness every time I see a Renegade out there enriching someone's life. My toddler noticed a green Renegade in a parking lot and said it was like Mom's car, which I thought was a surprising correlation for a three-year-old since mine was a different color. But the Renegade is a more distinct car than a classic sedan. Anyways, I'm sure there'll be plenty of comics once I get a new car. Oh, a bonus panel!

Explanation: In the Marvel Universe, a character named Thanos gets an important glove then snaps his fingers to make half the people in the universe disappear. In my comic above, I allude to Thanos snapping to remove all the Renegades from the Earth (so not a universal snap, just our planet).

L1: Why don't you get another Renegade?
L2: They've been discontinued :( 
L1: They're all gone?!
L2: Yep, Thanos snapped them off the Earth.
L1: ... so they might be on other planets?
L2: We can't rule that out.

Wow, you don't realize how many versions there are of a thing until you go to buy one. This is why so many people just buy the same thing they already had, just the newer version. There's too many options otherwise. But when your thing gets discontinued, then the decisions have to be made and it's annoying. 

Explanation: A stable could be described as a tiny barn. To stabilize something means to make it sturdier (more stable), but it could be interpreted as making something more like a stable. 

A: I told you to stabilize the swing set - why did you build a tiny barn around it?!?
B: :) It's not a tiny barn!

Board of Elections

 enable images please

Whether or not you believe in election, there still is a Board of Elections and it's not that kind of election. If you don't know about that kind of election, I am fine with leaving you in your ignorance. It's a very debated topic and it can mean different things. 

Explanation: The Board of Elections is a political thing. The topic of election is a spiritual thing. 

A: You got something from the Board of Elections.
B: I don't believe in election!

Bored of Elections

 enable images please

Happy Birthday Eve to my niece and my grandma!
Please read your official mail - sometimes it has useful stuff in there. Also, don't checkout and be bored of elections - they are important and you should make your voice heard even if your voice seems small. 

Explanation: "Board" and "bored" sound the same, and by the time an election finally happens there's been so much news coverage of all the main angles that it can be boring. 

A: You got something from the Board of Elections.
B: Sign me up! I'm bored of elections.

Voting Idiocy


enable images please
Happy Birthday to my niece!
I believe the Maryland Primaries are today, so research and vote if you're in a group that does that! Side note - I really like my mouseover on this comic. 

A: What do you think of the bill?
B: Only an idiot would vote for that.
A: You're that sure it'll pass?

Repost: Happy Mother's Day 2019

 enable images please

A repost from 2019! This might be my favorite line from Dr. Seuss, taken from the famous Are You My Mother book which WAIIIIIIIIIIIT it's not a Dr. Seuss book???? But it's shaped just like them??? It's actually a P. D. Eastman book. Today I learned. It was published in 1960, which means it's older than my parents. 

Baby Bird: I am glad you are my Mother. And that you are not a SNORT.

Ranking Hospitals

 enable images please

Happy Birthday to my Brother-in-Law! He's about a year older than me and a few years ago he had appendicitis so ever since I've been wary that my appendix could expire at any time. He probably went to the local General Hospital. There's a road near me named Columbia Gateway but it's abbreviated on signs to Col. Gateway and that makes me think either Colonel Gateway or shorten it further to Col. Gate. like the toothpaste. Also for this comic I was thinking what other ranks could be funny hospitals and realized Private Hospital is a thing.

Explanation: General Hospitals are a thing, they aren't specialist. But also General is a military ranking like Colonel. But I'm pretty sure military hospitals don't rank like that.  

A: Are they at the Windsor General Hospital?
B: No, the Windsor Colonel Hospital.

I'm not on the Twitter/X so is it still called retweeting? I have the same name as a celebrity so my ability to get accounts with my name is rather limited and I haven't tried to enter that particular sphere. Also did I draw a chick who should be cheeping rather than tweeting? Maybe. Maybe it's a baby tweety bird that just happens to be yellow and orange. It could happen. HAH I should have looked up what a baby mockingbird looks like, they would be retweeting since they like mimicry so much. 

Explanation: Birds are often characterized as saying "tweet" so a natural progression from that would be to "retweet." 

Title: Some kids are born leaders - others, however...
Baby Bird: Retweet! Retweet!

Riddle me E

 enable images to see comic

At first I didn't get what my man said because I heard it as "you" and I was like "no, that has no 'e's in it!" but then he clarified it as a female sheep and I was befuddled. The expected answer was "envelope" because the letter contained in it is a physical paper like a note also called a letter. But "ewe" sounds like the letter U so now there are two answers. Can you think of any more that qualify? The word must start and end with E and contain one letter (take that as you will). EYE! That's a third answer (sounds like I). Words like "eve" or "ere" don't qualify in my opinion because they contain three letters (i.e. "how many letters does the word "eve" contain?) but an argument could be made for saying the 'e's contain the one letter but that's really breaking down what 'contain' means in reference to a word. 

L: What word starts and ends with E and contains one letter?
M: Ewe.
L: Envel... wait a minute - that works, too.

Food Leaf Blower


Happy Birthday Eve to my Mark! He's the best. 

So I can't find the link for a food leaf blower, but this item is close. I can't find one for food but there are several on Amazon for keyboards and similar, so they're USB powered and meant to clean off your desk dirt. But I think that would work for food too if you have a converter to charge it near your kid's food. Or you just bring your computer over to the food area and plug it in like that. 

L: *scrolling on phone* Does Robin need a little leaf blower for her food?
M: *holding a pizza slice* I think I just burned my tongue.
L: Do you need a little leaf blower for your food?
