Over the Hedge

This is a fun one. Based on those old school turkeys with the pop-up indicator to tell you when it’s done (see how we’re closed caption for millennials). Not sure on the color on the dude in the final panel.  Sunburned? Or Trumpian spray tan?

Only T knows for sure.

The Dark Nerd

oh160730Okay, yes it’s very hot on the surface of Jupiter. But it’s very cold at the cloud tops. So clearly I was implying some sort of Jupiter cloud top scenario for our theoretical frozen corpse person.

Clearly.

Huzzah!

Wasn’t that fun?

You’re welcome.

Brussels Greatest Crime Against Humanity

oh160728I really don’t like brussels sprouts. They smell like Verne’s shell and they taste like RJ’s feet. Bad vegetable.  Bad, bad vegetable.

On Snorting Twinkies

oh160727Kids? Do not try this at home.

Or pretty much anywhere.

Maybe college if enough beer is involved.

But that’s it.

I have no liability.

I cannot be blamed.

RJ’s Zone of Comfort

oh160726My zone of comfort involves a recliner, a bag of chips, salsa, a Fireman’s 4 (or three) and a Giant’s game (preferably with Bumgarner or Cueto pitching).

I’m with RJ.

You can have my comfort zone when you pry it from my salty, snack-y fingers.

Fighting Inertia

oh160725I prefer a coffee drip. But that’s just me.

Over the Hedge

Wow. This one started a kerfuffle over at gocomics.com/overthehedge. Apparently, a large portion of my audience (now getting smaller) are climate change deniers. The specificity of denial is impressive. Wrong, but impressive in it’s seemingly technical assurance and misstatement of facts. It is a fact that 97% of climate change scientists believe that humans are driving rising CO2 and climate change.  Now, you can disagree. You can say stuff like 97% of scientists 400 years ago thought using leaches was quality health care. But it’s not 400 years ago. It’s now. There’s real evidence. It’s not all a money grab for government grants.

Here’s a good article on the 97% thing on the web site Skeptical Science.

Also, I realize North Pole melting doesn’t increase sea level. The North Pole is a frozen ocean. Melting ice cubes in your gin and tonic do not raise the level of liquid. It’s the South Pole and Greenland that are the concern.

Squirrels Just Wanna Have Fun

oh160723I’ve probably used this title before. But that’s okay. Still applies. Always applies. Always will apply. A-men.

Terrific job by T drawing the funny pictures this week.

In other news, I’m procrastinating finishing up my next kid’s book, “How to Be a Supervillain.” Yes, I know, super villain is actually two words, but it looks cooler as one word. It’s about a good kid named Victor born to bad supervillain parents. You know, not abusive bad, supervillain bad. Lots of evil laughs and lengthy monologues. Anyway, in an effort to “badden” Victor up, he becomes an apprentice to the lamest supervillain on the planet: THE SMEAR.  The Smear’s super power?  SUPER STAINS! “IT’LL NEVER WASH OUT!”

Super silly fun with/for the super silly set.

Deadpool for ten year olds.

Coming Summer 2017.
