A Bit of Brie

Aug 18th, 2017 | By

I don’t know what to say about this one except everything about it is true, true, true.



“The Insurance Pill,” by D. B. Silly

Aug 16th, 2017 | By

Two things we have in abundance

Medications and Lawsuits

Imagine a pill that gives you coverage for life, home, auto, and health. You take this pill and that’s it. You’re covered.



Sharks and Minnows

Aug 11th, 2017 | By

I realized that it was August but I had only done one summer-themed comic, and that comic wasn’t even uploaded in the summer. So to rectify that, here’s a comic about the pool! I don’t really get to enjoy the pool these days. I have so many kids that a trip to the pool is really me playing lifeguard for several hours while one or more children cling to me like soggy monkeys. But I’m glad folks like Winslow are able to enjoy themselves, even though his enjoyment involves ruining the pool for everyone else.



“Evidence That Our Timeline Has Been Tampered With,” by Lee Blevins

Aug 9th, 2017 | By

An early homo sapien sapiens skeleton was found in a cave in Luxembourg clutching a small rectangular device with a smooth dark screen. It was wrapped, quite literally, in the skin of an otter.

An ancient Egyptian mummified in one of the more modest pyramids was dissected by the British Museum in 1924. The mummy had a tattoo of a butterfly on her lower back.



Moonman

The title of today’s Ben & Winslow comic probably brings to mind a song. Are you thinking of a song? A song about moonmen?

Congratulations on your new job with the Carter Pool Cleaning Company. We take pride in two things here at Carter: extraordinarily clean pools and no sex with our customers. This is a guarantee and it’s one we take very seriously. It’s what differentiates us from our competitors.



Hot Flashes

Some people shed skin. Winslow sheds heads.



“Yelp Reviews of some of Oregon’s Prisons,” by Matt Kolbet

Jul 26th, 2017 | By

Oregon State Penitentiary, Salem.

This place is showing its age. I know they moved it from Portland in 1866, but seriously…the concrete walls are under 15 ft. high. Both sad and ridiculous. On the plus side, it didn’t take as long to get served as when I went to Social Cube in downtown Portland. The bartender there totally ignored me. Of course, that’s part of how I ended up here. Three stars.



Super Grocery Kart

Jul 21st, 2017 | By

I don’t know if you’re aware of this (and I probably wouldn’t have paid much attention but I’ve got four kids, so…), but a lot of grocery stores have shopping carts shaped like little cars. The benefit to these things is that they can usually hold two small, squirming children instead of the usual one, making grocery shopping that much more bearable. But some of these things are true monstrosities.



“Can We Please Bring Back the Casual Workplace Death Threat?” by Mike Fowler

Jul 19th, 2017 | By

As one who has been showing up at the office for over 20 years, I recall the days when I would arrive at 8 a.m. on Monday, and in response to my coworker’s sleepy, “Hey, Mike, ready for another week in the salt mines?”
