Well, now. Ain't this a kick in the nips!
"I Tells ya... we're gonna make a MINT!!"
...and it ain't over. Enjoy!
You must know by now that whenever I use that phrase, you're in for things like this:
Let's see if I can actually get this thing going...
And now... Jimmy Olsen and Power Girl. A passion play in 10 panels:
One of my dogs has had a weird skin injury that has been bothering her for a few days. Right on the top of her back, towards the butt end. A big pussy (Hi, Googlers!), scabby round abrasion. Nothing I haven't dealt with before (I thought) So, I've been tending to it, clipping the hair around it, rubbing on the first-aid cream and whatnot and keeping her from licking it as much as I can. In spite of that, it's started to spread, so this morning I did a doggie doctor web search and found an exact match.
My dog has ringworm. Fan-flippin'-tastic.
Ringworm, in case you didn't know, is not a worm, but a fungus that infects skin. Nothing too serious - a decent fungal cream will take care of it in a few MONTHS, but its spores are airborne, and it is communicable. Even to humans.
So, in addition to buying a new air filter and treating the doggie with several new creams, I'm having to wash everything daily to keep it from spreading to the other dog. And to me. And keep in mind that I've rubbed my unprotected fingers over this sucker for a few days now, not knowing what it was. As soon as I found out, I hit the shower scrubbing like a rape victim. *sigh*
The next few months are going to consist of constant housecleaning and daily laundry. Dangit.
Well, enough with the Scabs... bring on the Boobies!
Every now and then (heck, often) Adam blogs a panel that begs re-working. And it sometimes involves a much-needed bitch slap. For example:
Sorry about yesterday's *ahem* ribald bit of dildo foolishness¹. Won't happen again for at least a week. Maybe sooner. Oh well.
OK - Back to the Silver Age Wackiness!©
Quick 'N Dirty.
And I do mean.. oh, the heck with it.
Sorry for the lack of posts recently; it's been a crazy week. Odd obligations, weird late-night incidents, strange work requests and the like. Plus, the Roller Girl has moved in, been hired for a new job and so we're real busy taking care of all the stuff that follows that. Plus, I'm a lazy, lazy guy.
I'm am working on a few new things, though. Things for this blog. Things that'll take some time before I'm happy with them. So, been busy there, too.
For lack of a proper post, please enjoy the glory that is (basically) the final panel from this week's All Star Superman. Thank you, Mr. Morrison and Mr. Quitely.
I'm actually quite amazed at how well this one works. And on so many levels, too!
(And.. let me apologize in advance for sullying your childhood memories.)
More from the Goddamn Batman, because.. why the hell not?
(Plus, I completely thunked myself in the head when I eventually thought of this one. Took me a while. Huh.)
So I finally got around to reading the latest installment of The Goddamn Batman.
Actually, it was the best issue so far. I think this series has hit a turning point and will go in a different direction for the next half dozen issues. Make more rational sense and tread less over-the-top. Which is a bit of a shame. No reason for me thinking that, I just have a goddamn feeling.
And, since it is still my favorite comic to mess with, I give you this...
Nothing (and no time) to post tonight.. but I'll try and whip up something this weekend.
So instead, here's the best Gary Gygax tribute I've seen so far. And I've seen a lot of them.
I know the pieces are there - the patterns were always the same.... But when you actually map it out...
Wow! It explains a lot!
Sorry for the posting delays - It's been quite busy here, especially over the weekends. Plus there's a bout of teh sickness going around Stately Soup Manor... I guess that's the price to pay when you actually have a roommate other than the four legged variety. I mean, when I haven't found the time to go get the latest copy of the Goddamn Batman yet, you know I've been busier than a Japanese beaver! At least I'm still posting more frequently than this guy.
Anyhoo, off with teh funny!
