Thursday April 30th

The comic:

Wait, they have internet?

Also, if I remember correctly, someone's about to get kicked off the internet! So they're still stupid.

Wednesday April 29th

The comic:

Wow. They got on the unfunny stimulus package jokes pretty fast.

You notice he's not talking about the rest of the coupons? That would make more sense. This is one coupon, for one dinner. (For however many people, it's still ONE DAMN DINNER.)

Not to mention their deathwish, which is what popped in my head when I saw the top half. I like junk food, I've been to buffets before, but anything with the word "greasy" in its title is an automatic red flag to me. Mostly for safety reasons, plus a bit of taste thrown in. Not that I'm too good for a greasy spoon, I mean if your food is so greasy that you use that as your selling point, well... urgh.

Tuesday April 28th

The comic:

Was he ever called the American idol? Is there an American idol? (Not counting the stupid show.)

Or are Pluggers just being grumpy old misanthropes again. I thought old people liked American Idol the show, since it was cleaner than most of the rest and they sometimes have oldies nights.

But Pluggers like to watch John Wayne movies. So much so that they idolize him. Well, he's dead, so I guess he makes a good idol.

And it's not John Wayne they idolize, it's what he represents - the "right" American way of life. (I don't mean right as in right/left politically, I mean right as in not wrong.) An America where kids stayed off their lawns and respected their elders, by gum! Hey old people! Want respect? Than move to a country that's less obsessed with youth, where they do revere their elders, like Japan! (Yeah, I just "move-to-france-d" a Plugger!)

Monday April 27th

The comic:

As someone who frequently forgets things (thanks to the many medications and their lovely side effects), I find this hilarious!

It is so damn funny when you forget something and people yell at you! Oh, I'm not crying, I'm really laughing.

Or or or or when it has hard consequences, be it ruined food or a failed test! Oh the hilarity that ensues! Did I take my medicine? I'm not sure, I forgot! (hahhahahahahahahaha)

The comic:

At least they look happy. I have to give them that.

The comic:

Are you sure it's not lead?

Thursday April 23rd

The comic:

A Plugger copies other Pluggers, though I forgot where that one is!

The comic:

Because Pluggers have no friends.

Tuesday April 21st

The comic:

So there are Pluggers, retired Pluggers, and now really retired Pluggers.

And apparently Pluggers never had a vacation, or slept in. Despite being lazy.

6:45 can be late for work, but it's only part of the year that the sun is up before then.

Pluggers are messed up.

Monday April 20th

The comic:

A Plugger is old.

And a drawer full? Really? In 2009? I can understand keeping one sheet as a memento (they are part of history, because what the hell are green stamps?), but a drawer full?

Did a plugger just find this drawer because this burea was hidden behind 2 feet deep stack of newspapers? "They'll come in handy one day!"

And you know she won't throw a single stamp out.

I'm sure the reality was Glynn Collier coming across a sheet or a few loose stamps and getting nostalgic. I hope it was. But that's boring, and doesn't end with a Plugger surrounded by eventually useful junk.

The comic:

Because that's the mark of the beast, right?

Friday April 17th

The comic:

What makes this particularly spring-like? I'd think it more appropriate for fall, as these sorts of these things of done for homecoming week (football).

So you're a Plugger if you're tacky and bewildered by life. (Look at the eyes!)

I'm just glad that shirt doesn't fit Plugger Jr.

As for Papa Bear's bewilderment, he agreed (or maybe his wife?) to let the kid wear the shirt before, so he can't blame the kid. We're stupid at the age, really stupid. Though when we're bewildered, we try to correct the situation by learning. (Or I do.)

Thursday April 16th

The comic:

And those shoes will soon be green. Trust me.

Oh holy hell I know where Hendersonville is - I call them tennis shoes too, even though they're not used for tennis.

Damn these regionalisms! They do not make you a Plugger!

Wednesday April 15th

The comic:

I've seen this one too, but I don't remember the exact date. My sins are just stacking up.

I will note this time that I wouldn't let a Plugger use a "regular" backhoe, elbow grease or no.

Tuesday April 14th

The comic:

Yet another Plugger from a place with distinct seasons.

Oh my god.


I know this one.

This was my very first one from April first, 2007. A Sunday.

I'll always remember this one.

Some things have changed - there is now a credit.

And the caption has been shortened. It used to say "They do their spring cleaning outdoors." (Essentially. That was a long-ass caption.)

But the drawing is still the same.

He still ate a pizza in his car. That still confuses me.

Pluggers are lazy slobs. That does not confuse me.

The hamburger now confounds me. It's whole. He threw a whole hamburger back there and it didn't fall apart. How the hell did that happen?

Monday April 13th

The comic:

I don't have anything mean to say. Yard sales are pretty cool.

I am glad this came from Minnesota and not the more Plugger heavy South, though, or I would have been mighty confused. There is no first sign of spring here.

Saturday April 11th

The comic:

For suggesting chicken to his chicken wife, she's going to club him to death.

Friday April 10th

The comic:

It's funny because he's whipped! Ha!

You know why this is a classic? "Retired" Pluggers now have to go back to work. Ha!

I'm dyin' it's so funny!

Thursday April 9th

The comic:

Some of my favorite(?) Pluggers are those where it's just the Plugger and an empty void.

I don't know what else to say. Pluggers like fancy things? Again, a bit against the Plugger credo. You think the sun would be good enough.

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

Wednesday April 8th

The comic:

Pluggers don't have cell phones.

Pluggers don't have cell phones with cameras.

If they do, they certainly don't know how to use them!

Let's just break some Plugger laws, why don't we! Tomorrow, "you know you're a Plugger when you're so skinny, people think you're anorexic!" "Pluggers are SO young..."

What's happening to the world?

At least we still know Pluggers are country folk. I wonder if he has any coverage out there, or just uses it as a camera.

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

Tuesday April 7th

The comic:

Huh? Too wordy, not enough sense.

I think the gist is "Pluggers are thrifty" or as I put it "Pluggers are cheap."

Monday, April 6, 2009

Monday April 6th

The comic:

And now they're yanking them out and sending them in to Cash For Gold!

There are so many things I don't like about this drawing - the patient's teeth, the patient's eyes, the dentist's teensy eyes, the dentist's lack of teeth.

I think the patient's teeth are the weirdest - if those are dentures, they should be, you know, out. And if not, he's a Plugger, he can't afford good teeth!

The dentist's eyes are creeping me out. Can he see over his snout?

Also, this looks very familiar. I think it even had a similar stupid caption. I wonder if Reed is copying himself or another Plugger, or if this is just a second dentist-related Plugger in 2 years.

Friday April 3rd

The comic:

You're a Plugger if you have an elderly parent who worried about you?

So if you're lucky enough to have your mom live that long (and you get along) and be in good health, you're a Plugger. Why do they get to be the lucky ones?

Of course, PluggerMom may have Alzheimer's/dementia, if her daughter is humoring her like that. Or her mom recently moved in because they couldn't afford the crappy nursing home anymore.

The comic:

And for some reason feel the need to tell the rest of the world. Is it pride?
