Wednesday April 1st

Two years of my life.

The comic:

But she doesn't look old enough to remember when zzzzz.

Tuesday March 31st

The comic:

When I could only see the top, I thought this was bad. As much as I love the RhinoMan, I don't love him nekkid.


I pity the few people who see this over breakfast in the morning.

Monday March 30th

The comic:

There are young Pluggers?

I guess their parents aren't Pluggers, because we've had no indication that Pluggers - especially older males - know jackshit.

Saturday March 28th

The comic:

You're a Plugger if you gradually lose interest in your wife as you both age, and instead of having an affair with your kid's friend, you want to fuck their car.

Friday March 27th

The comic:

I almost like the shading of the bulbs - it makes me think that they're using Christmas lights in their tacky chandelier.

Though if Pluggers really hate technology, shouldn't those be real candles?

She looks a bit surprised, a bit not. But not happy, or mad. Just like, "Hey stupid, you didn't turn the lights off. They're probably hot."

Can a Plugger get much dimmer? A comic koan for the ages.

Thursday March 26th

The comic:

Hope chest?


Are those still common?

I only know what they are because of what I assume is a '70s era Archie story starring Betty and Veronica. In the story, I believe Veronica says hope chests are old fashioned.

So your best friend's hope chest is supposed to be your wife's hope chest but oh ho! Those whily Pluggers! Their best friends are really their pets, because they can't talk back.

And instead of being a cedar chest for linens and the like, it's a fridge!

I'm dying of laughter over here!

Or maybe that's whatever's been plaguing me for the last few weeks. You laugh when you're dying of laughter, right?

Wednesday March 25th

The comic:

My sister is a Plugger.

*does a happy dance*

She doesn't know what Twitter is.

And you don't twitter, twitter is the name of the site. Tch.

I liked Foxtrot's use of it. As usual, they know how to integrate technology and real life.

Pluggerville doesn't have any cellphones or computers or teenagers, apparently. They're not Amish, that's unfair to the Amish.

Tuesday March 24th

The comic:

I don't have the emotional fortitude for this borderline racist bullshit. Fat fucks in flannel "I don't see skin color, I see shirt color!" Or fur color, whatever.

God! You think they can't get any worse.

Sunday, March 22, 2009

Monday March 23rd

The comic:

Pluggers are feeble.

Seriously, this is what you've got? I'm sick sick sick sick sick SICK, and I see my doc once a month. Granted, when I was really sick with a skin infection, I didn't have appointments and just showed up a couple times a week, but vacations were impossible at that time anyway, because I was sick.

I mean, duh.

And of course, they're lucky to have so many doctors to see in a month that it fills their calendar. Lucky that their insurance lets them (they are Pluggers), because we know they can't afford specialist or even GP fees.

Saturday March 21st

The comic:

Oh come on!

Like he would use them if he could find them.

Sorry, that's all I got tonight.

Thursday, March 19, 2009

Friday March 20th

The comic:

Oh damn.

I was about to be all happy for Pluggers, praising them for being so progressive by showing a woman playing sports and winning.

Then I saw the caption.


I realize it's meant as a joke, and was sent in by a woman, but damn, I hate that phrase, hate the mindset that created it, ugh ugh all around.

Also, not to nitpick, but why would anyone marry a Plugger except for love, as would a trophy spouse? They aren't rich or good at anything but spouting cliches in an even folksier manner than the original.

Thursday March 19th

The comic:

Okay, I don't remember my parents reading stories to me, though I'm sure they did. (I love reading, and have since a young age, and according to everything, they had to read to me or else I'd hate books. Or something.)

But oh!

I remember when I was in the ER because I needed a calcium IV to boost my calcium levels fast. My fingers and legs were a-tingle. I was 14 and a half. I asked my mom to read me a Stephen King short story. Yes, I knew how it ended. But the fun came from her reading it aloud to me. And the love. She's my mom.

I was like, "It gets more awesome!" but I didn't ruin the end of the story. Plus, the people on the other side of the story (one in genuine pain) started listening and that would have been rude.

I guess my point is, there's more to reading a story to your child than the story itself. Maybe part of your ritual is saying together "and they lived happily ever after." Parent, "Goodnight."

But the kid? Bah.

Doing this young sets up a lifetime of illiteracy. Somehow. But Good Eats is on. He's frying something. Toodles.

Wednesday March 18th

The comic:

Pluggers are fat with tiny heads.

Why does he look so confused? That's not the right emotion at all. Dismayed, maybe. But this blankness... I don't like it. Will RhinoMan have to eat the belt for his last bit of nourishment?

Monday, March 16, 2009

Tuesday March 17th

The comic:

"But, ma'am, you're not buying anything."

Sunday, March 15, 2009

Monday March 16th

The comic:

Just put them on. If you still can't see, they're not yours. If you can, voila, you found them.

I mean, honestly, this is a problem?

No, this got published for the damn "wordplay" in the caption. Oh, since it says "reigns" shouldn't one of the Pluggers be a horse for that extra touch of hilarity?

Saturday, March 14, 2009

Saturday March 14th

The comic:

No, there are no young Pluggers. I can't accept that.

Plus, Spongebob rocks, according to this 20 year old. So nyah, Larry.

Get some DVDs, you old fart. (Where is Sponge on Saturday mornings? When am I up before noon on Saturday?)

Friday, March 13, 2009

Friday March 13th

The comic:

Because Pluggers go off the grid on a regular basis. Right.

If you're away from reliable prune juice, you're also away from clean bathrooms.

Do people normally take six packs with them on road trips? People who aren't college boys?

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Thursday March 12th

The comic:

I've got nothing.

He's stupid, but this is incredibly depressing.

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

Wednesday March 11th

The comic:

You're a a Plugger if you eat fast food exclusively.

But if you ate it all the time, wouldn't you have the menu memorized?

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Tuesday March 10th

The comic:

I've got nothing.

I watched a 3 and a half hour Bollywood epic today starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan called Jodhaa-Akbar. They were playing pretty much the opposite of Pluggers, as they were medieval royalty. And gorgeous. Especially Hrithik. Anyways, oh! There was a scene with food! And Jodhaa cooked it for her husband and the Elder Mother made her taste it, totally humiating her in front of the court. And Jalal saved the day by eating from the plates she ate from. (Bollywood intimacy is... different.)

So maybe the kids are dead because Plugger food is poisoned? That's the default setting, but then they'd be used to it, have a resistance. Hmm. Gotta think about this.

Sunday, March 8, 2009

Monday March 9th

The comic:

Oh, my lord.

Why do Pluggers need to jump start their day anyway?

So they can get their cliches straight?

Friday, March 6, 2009

Saturday March 7th

The comic:

From that Simpsons episode where they go on that reality show, I think castor oil is some sort of fiber-type thing, in that it acts like fiber.


If you thought Thursday's smooch was gross, try to image what a Plugger performance is.

You're welcome.

Have a great weekend.

Plugger cookie sighting!

Would you eat a cookie made by a Plugger? Didn't think so.

The comic:

That is the kind of joke I expect from Pluggers.

Also, freaky - two girl scout cookie jokes that suck from two sucky comics on the same day?

Friday March 6th

The comic:

Pluggers are schmucks.

Wednesday, March 4, 2009

Thursday March 5th

The comic:

Shouldn't this have run on Valentine's Day?

It's actually nice to see this, considering married Pluggers usually act like sitcom married couples, and those guys hate each other.

Though dude, what's with the lunch box? Yesterday somebody was charging something after learning the 3 Rs in school and now this.

I guess they've never heard of a Diabetes either. That was my first thought upon seeing the caption.

Wednesday March 4th

The comic:

Pluggers are broke and stupid.

Like the switched gender and the use of charge. How old is this tripe?

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

Tuesday March 3rd

The comic:

So he's tired, not depressed. He didn't just take a whole bottle of sleeping pills.

And of course they have that style alarm clock.

Doesn't need electricity.

Notice no cord on the lamp? Yup, RhinoMan's lost power. Oh well, TVA was a commie plot anyway.

Monday, March 2, 2009

Monday March 2nd

The comic:

Have you heard that urban legend? Somebody puts a pin with AIDS-infected blood in the slot, and blammo! Insta-AIDS! (Oh boo hoo, My Brother Nikhil is such a good movie.)

Anyways, not true, no one needs to get sick, but god, how stupid can you be?

And where are all these phones, anyway? Of course Pluggerville is the last place to have cell phone coverage.

He left something off the word balloon: "We eat tonight!"
