Saturday August 30th

The comic:

Because they can't read the articles.

Now this is not sick because fish are animals and so are Pluggers, kind of.

Bears eat fishies in the wild, so it makes sense that the domesticated Plugger breed would do the same.

But the caption...

That's associated with Playboy and titty rags. So he's ogling his dinner?

And his wife is not happy about it. She could be upset because this is yet more time spent around fishing, even in the house. Or, and this is better, because I want it to be as twisted as possible, she knows he wishes she were a bass.

The comic:

This is one time I'm glad the gender has been changed.

Resume? With accent marks? Well la di da, Pluggers love arugula!

There is only one thing on the car that would be a regular resume - the Navy one. Pluggers were more like my dad in the navy. That's the only way I can accept that.

Love of Jesus, dog, country, gun, grandkids, and fishing is irrelevant.

Now the retired sticker would make the idea of a resume pointless, but we have seen retired Pluggers working, before. I just can't find that one.

"Life story" would be more logical.

The comic:

That's not right.

I know there are worse Plugger things, but as someone who wears glasses, this hits my head.

I've put my sister's oversized sunglasses over my regular pair, and that works.

But having a second prescription pair over the bottom? Oh, ow.

I know glasses aren't cheap, but damn, abusing your eyes will cost more in the long run.

I've tried on bifocals before, and they're worse than my mom's prescription. (We're both near-sighted.)

I wonder if those are both cheap reading glasses from the Wal-Mart? Or if the bottom pair is her first pair of glasses from middle school.

Hey, you wonder why you get headaches, Esther? It's not angels pounding icepicks into your head for reading Beetle Bailey. They're doing it because you're killing your eyes.

Wednesday August 27th

The comic:

If there are senior Pluggers, there are non-senior Pluggers.

How rude are young Pluggers? "Honey" is what the old lady calls you.

And Mister? MISTER? What, are you a senior Plugger in your twenties?

Well, these are Pluggers. As soon as high school is over, they're ready to act old.

For the record, it's "ma'am" and "sir" and they indicate that you are a grown-up. An 11 year old kept calling me "ma'am" this summer, I about died.

Monday August 25th

The comic:

Not only do Pluggers eschew cell phones, they speak in clichés.

I've never said that and meant it. I mean, sure I'd like to know when the lovely cornfields will end, but there are other ways to figure that out without acting like a sitcom brat. A regular brat, maybe.

Saturday August 23rd

The comic:

Pluggers don't have remotes?

Channel surfing is not trying to get better reception on the channels you have, nor is it trying to get more channels. It is only changing the channels you have. With a remote.

Or maybe his stance on the roof is similar to a surfer's. I don't know, they're just stupid.

The comic:

I'm supposed to know horseshoe terms to do this?

Oh, forget it.

Thursday August 21st

The comic:

EW! Is she putting peanuts in her generic cola? PEANUTS?

So Pluggers drink their corn likker straight. Good to know.

Wednesday August 20th

The comic:

One - has there ever been a truly porcine Plugger? I don't remember one, but if there has, they kill the young and hollow them out after fattening them up. Charming people, these Pluggers.

Two - the word young is not in the caption, so this is confirmation that there are Pluggers under 50.

Three - people still do this? Hey, stupid, there's another hole at the bottom that you can open up without breaking your bank. I have a bank shaped like a pig, and it has two holes on the bottom - one in the bottom of a foot without a cover, and another in the center.

Four - holy hell, this is insane, not to mention insensitive. Wouldn't Pluggers be more affected by the recent crisis? Or are they still renting their farm house from Boss Hogg?

Tuesday August 19th

The comic:

But if there's a riding mower in there, there is no other space for a vehicle in there.

Pluggers really care about their cars, you know?

Monday, August 18, 2008

Monday August 18th

The comic:

Okay, so I don't quite get the fuss over high definition TV. Nor can I tell the difference between non-HD and HD channels. Of course, we now have an HDTV, so nothing is fuzzy.

And I wear glasses.

Thanks a lot Judy Acampora! I like saying your last name.

And no, they're never fully clean.

Saturday August 16th

The comic:

Oh damn I want a hammock.

And that's not networking - he didn't make the net, he bought the damn thing at the Wal-Mart. (We saw a free standing one for sale at the Kroger. So elite!)

It doesn't even connect to what networking is - connecting with other people, for business and probably other reasons. Are Pluggers antisocial now?

God I want a hammock. Though not like that, I'd like a solid one. Or not. Maybe I can hang one up in my dorm room next weekend. Hmm.

Stupid Pluggers.

Friday August 15th

The comic:

It is not my habit to look up terms I find in Pluggers, so screw it.

Non-Pluggers care about books and theories and huge amounts of money.

Pluggers decide to chop up their old car to cover the hole in the roof.

That was my first impression. Second, too.

Now I see it again. Non-Pluggers are wealthy and therefor bad, Pluggers are broke and therefor good.

I wonder if they'd save more money buying a car with better mileage.

Or if this is just an excuse not to change anything.

And is that the garage roof?

Thursday August 14th

The comic:

Pluggers don't swim?

I guess that's a good thing.

And, of course, non-Pluggers want children to die.

Wednesday August 13

The comic:

Wait - Pluggers don't line dance?

I need to sit down.

Tuesday August 12th

The comic:

Oh, the women! They love the ice cream so much, am I right guys?

Monday, August 11, 2008

Monday August 11th

The comic:

Hey! A happy Plugger who isn't stuffing his face or watching TV.

Of course he's from Texas. Is that a bolo tie?

And of course he ironed his blue jeans. Or went out and bought new ones, but my new jeans never have creases in them.

The only other person who creases their jeans is Mr. Burns, and he didn't even crease them, his bones did.

But Pluggers have been shown to wear suits! Of course, the suits are old, ill-fitting, and out of style.

I don't know anymore.

Saturday August 9th

The comic:

Pluggers suck at golf.

In addition to everything else.

And what does that mean "charge mileage"?

Friday, August 8, 2008

Friday August 8th

The comic:

But he is resting and relaxing... that's all Pluggers do, when they're not working hard at their blue collar jobs.

Thursday, August 7, 2008

Thursday August 7th

The comic:

I thought this would have something to do with the price of snacks at the movies. No, they're just gluttons.

And non-Pluggers find pots of leprechaun gold on a regular basis? I'm not sure what they're saying here.

It looks like he's not at the bottom of the container, so he's not at the end.

Maybe August is making me too stupid for Pluggers.

Wednesday, August 6, 2008

Wednesday August 6

The comic:

This hurts my head.

Why would a Plugger need to calculate their net worth? Is he preparing his will?

So are Pluggers more honest than non-Pluggers, since that would never occur to me. Especially since I use my gift cards. Like a normal person.

Or so broke that the gift cards make up a good percentage of their net worth?

Tuesday, August 5, 2008

Tuesday August 5th

The comic:

The cost of gas is a shock, a rude awakening if you will. Crude is somehow related to gas, so it's a crude awakening.

Oh, the hilarity.

Check out the license plate. Those cost more than regular ones, I think, but hey, let's whine about gas prices. No one would ever think of that, because only Pluggers know about this, as it affects only them. The mainstream media has kept this hidden.

Monday August 4th

The comic:

No old male Pluggers. Or the old men can't remember anything.

What the hell are they talking about? What are they reading?


Saturday, August 2, 2008

Saturday August 2nd

The comic:

Pluggers live sad, lonely lives. Especially the guys - male bonding involves industrial solvents. (I think they've already used that one. I know someone has.)

I just finished Kabul Beauty School, and while it's about salons for women and the camaraderie within, I thought that applied with the all male environment of the barber shop as well.

Especially with old fashioned Pluggers. Women don't come in, so why not relax and talk? Because 80% of the country is Hank Hill, apparently. Great. Love the show, but come on. You won't die if you talk to people!

Friday August 1st

The comic:

What the heck is hypermiling?

This is Pluggers. They shouldn't use fancy words. So I refuse to look it up.

So is hypermiling something like getting more miles per gallon? Or is it exercise related?

No, no. I refuse to find it out.
