Saturday October 31st

The comic:

And they're a great source of protein, too!

Not that my dogs have eaten birds, they mainly kill them and carry/bury the corpses, growling at everyone until the wittle birdy can be disposed of. Then it's out of sight, out of - ooh, shiny!


*goes into a corner to weep*

Friday October 30th

The comic:

So everyone is a Plugger.

Because we cannot escape "history" or the flow of time, though I just finished a Thursday Next book that says you can, but then I get a headache.

Okay, now I'm wondering if comics exist in BookWorld. I mean, there are book collections of most comics out there... Granted, it's a British series and... where'd everybody go? Hey, these books are not only funnier than Pluggers, they're funnier than I think I am!

The comic:

Pluggers don't need no guvmint help!

They'll rummage through rich people's furniture by themselves, thankyouverymuch!

Wednesday October 28th

The comic:

This hurts my head.

Do Pluggers have no control over their minds? Bodies "know" with the mind...

I like RhinoMan's kicky little sweatband. Stylin'!

Tuesday October 27th

The comic:

Most cars have change holders, you know.

This is better than I expected - I thought it would be about purses, because stereotypes are funny in Pluggerville.

But now I'm just.

Saturday October 24th

The comic:

I'm glad they have their own barber shops.

And who knew Pluggers were so vain? Eyebrow trimming! Well, we discovered they were preppies this week, so who knows.

And yes, old men have hair in their ears. Isn't that the funniest thing you've ever heard? (If you can hear through all that hair.)

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Friday October 23rd

The comic:

Wow, a lot of qualifiers in this one. Only "some" of the shirts? They're not full time preppies/yuppies?

Wait... Pluggers wearing Polo?

They really are out of touch. Or I am.

Probably a bit of each.

And why would the kid care - ooh, an alligator on Pop-pop's shirt, cool! Not "What IS that." No question mark.

Weird, weird, weird.

Oh, it's from Virginia. Maybe that explains it.

Thursday October 22nd

The comic:

Haven't they already done this "gag"?

And they're not helping the environment at all, unless that guy is going to junk that POS as soon as he gets home. Take that, trees!

Argh, I have a test in Arabic tomorrow. And one in French. And I never remember the vocabulary.

Wednesday October 21st

The comic:

Change is scary.

Also, isn't that expensive? I know it's more expensive to replace something every year, but when it's 54 years old, I think the parts cost more than a new one.

Tuesday October 20th

The comic:



That grandfather Plugger looks scared or angry. Probably not even his grandkid.

I just... what?

I used to carry my cousin around on my shoulders when she was younger, but referring to myself as a Segway? The fuck is wrong with Pluggers?

Monday October 19th

The comic:

Do most people even have or know what frozen assets are?

Oh well, any excuse to show Pluggers eating! And, look, he's happy. Perhaps I've lost it, but I like to see them happy. He could look guilty (it's probably after 7) or miserable, which implies he's not enjoying the food.

I'm insane.

Saturday October 17th

The comic:

I'm just a poor college student. Despite being a **Southern Lady**, I know little about fashion.

The only thing I can think of is the episode where The Who come to Springfield, and Mr. Burns chides Smithers for ironing creases into his dungarees and making him look like a square. Of course, the creases are really his brittle old-man bones poking through. Which is excellent.

Also, are those cowboy boots? Somehow this seems more suited for a stereotypical view of Texas, not Florida. (And how cool is the name "Niceville" for a town? Seriously, not making fun.)

So what is the point?

Pluggers have "dress jeans." They have creases, therefore they are ironed regularly, or rarely worn. If it's the latter, they're repeating their "gag" about Pluggers and suits and how infrequently they wear them. (They're either outdated, ill-fitting, or both.)

Okay, I spend a lot of time in sweats. (Or "yoga pants.") Whatever, they're not made of denim.

But even I don't see jeans as dressy or formal. I have dress pants and a kind-of formal dress. They have served me well.

Basically, what the flying fuck are "dress jeans"?

Friday October 16th

The comic:

What's the vintage? Last month? I bet it came from a box.

Also, too much caption. Show her snoring, him with the remote after "get lucky..."

Pluggers don't have more than one TV. Or more than one hooked up to cable.

Also, they drug their wives so they can watch... whatever the hell Pluggers watch. Desperate Housewives? Reruns of Full House? Porn?

The comic:

And they live in their bomb shelters to this day, thankfully.

Wednesday October 14th

The comic:

Geez, it's not the end of the world. E-mail addresses are free, and most towns have libraries with these things called computers... oh just text your grandkid and ask them to do it.

The inconvenience? I'm going to hurt myself rolling my eyes.

Also, what kind of comic syndicate doesn't have a street address? And if the post office in my zip code changed and I depended on a PO Box, I'd go to the next one and buy another one.

Sadly, the Plugger is overreacting. This does not spell the end of the "comic." So you still have me. Whoo.

And I'm too much of a Southern, gentile lady to mention it, but Hahahhahaha

Tuesday October 13th

The comic:

Because they're being guilted by their mom.

Why isn't grandpa involved?

Pluggers texting... geez, draw smaller fingers or bigger phones!

Monday October 12th

The comic:

Where's the supposed funny?

And Pluggers are terrible people, no imagination. OR it didn't come out of the blue, she'd been obsessing over it for a long time, getting more and more bitter and crazy that all she sees are the chores he will never do.

One of them will end up dead, but who'll have to do the cleaning? She will.

Saturday October 10th

The comic:

Because they're terrible fishers?

The cat as Plugger today is funny, I guess.

This is really stupid. I hate fishing.

Friday, October 9, 2009

Friday October 9th

The comic:

I think I can see some sense in this - smoking is an addiction, and a hard one to quit.

So you'd remember the day you stopped. I don't know how long, I'm not a smoker.

However, the "man forgetting the anniversary" gag is played out, older than Cracker Barrel, boring.

Speaking of Cracker Barrel, reservations? What? I admit it's been a few years since I went to one, but damn. Reservations? Really?

Thursday October 8th

The comic:

That's not how piercing works!

I mean, yes, technically, they are piercing your flesh. But it heals. On purpose.

So Pluggers get the flu shot.

How... timely, for them.

And last time I got a band-aid, it was a plain one. They never offer me licensed characters. The most I ever got was a sparkly one. Pluggers get all the breaks.

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

Wednesday October 7th

The comic:

I saw the head of the Plugger today and was like, ooh new animal!

And now I know why. A beard wouldn't look right on a bear/dog. (Though Wickett has the cutest little nevermind.)

But that's not a ponytail. That's just hair. I don't see any elastic ponytail holder.

Do people actually do that with facial hair? According to Bernie Lange, Pluggers do.

Tuesday October 6th

The comic:

I think this "joke" or "observation" is older than me, next!

Monday, October 5, 2009

Monday October 5th

The comic:

Wow, someone in Pluggerville can use sarcasm. I assume they'll be killed and eaten soon.

Saturday, October 3, 2009

Saturday October 3rd

The comic:

You're a Plugger if you're old and can prove it! Why doesn't Obama produce a 1961 coin, huh, why don't he?

Thursday, October 1, 2009

Friday October 2nd

The comic:

Pluggers don't care about their carpet, but they do care about "looking good" by wearing uncomfortable shoes. What?

Thursday October 1st

The comic:


And Pluggers get more, not less, disturbing the more you see them. The feet, the hands, the head... nothing matches!
