Monday July 27th

The comic:

Pluggers don't like being bit by bugs.

The rest of us relish in the situation and splash on expensive parfums with foreign names.

Saturday July 25th

The comic:

Pluggers are delusional. They're Pluggers, which automatically makes them failures! I'm surprised they're willing to admit that life isn't perfect.

Okay, this makes no g-d sense. Help!

Friday July 24th

The comic:

Of course this is from Florida.

So why aren't they in a home? Because they're stronger than their weak little twerpy kids or something...

Or they're ghosts.

Actually, I bet the kids moved in at 18 to escape and now they've been caught and will return to the compound. Shed a tear for them.

Thursday July 23rd

The comic:

Pluggers can read?

And they do crosswords for fun?

I call shenanigans.

Of course, the reason they never fight is because they realized at a young age that resistance is useless.

Wednesday July 22nd

The comic:

I remember this one!

And it's just as stupid as it was back then.

"Earning" ice cream? Is ice cream their currency? No wonder so many are fat.

Tuesday July 21st

The comic:

Why isn't this called a classic? Because it - or the drawing - has run before. I will never forget it. Most disturbing Pluggers ever.

Monday July 20th

The comic:

How is that a paradox?

Saturday July 18th

The comic:

She's so deluded - she's been married to him most of her life (shotgun wedding after graduation, ya know) and she still thinks he gives a damn about her wants!

Friday July 17th

The comic:

I thought he'd call her his remote control. This is better, somehow. At least she's not an inanimate object. (Unlike him.)

Thursday July 16th

The comic:

RhinoMan... golfing? But how? Oh, he must be a caddie.

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Wednesday July 15th

The comic:

I am not going to google that - this is Pluggers, for fuck's sake! Down-to-earth, simple. No need for fancy internet searches.

Anyways, Pluggers are broke and have shitty cars. News to me!

Tuesday July 14th

The comic:

All teenagers in Pluggerville are disgruntled, because they know what the future holds for them.

Monday July 13th

The comic:

Get a better one, you idiot. They make ones where it holds more than one pill per day, in its own little compartment. As someone who has to take meds 3 times a day, trust me.

Wait... they said meds.


First the emotionally draining Rang De Basanti, now this? Oh when will the horror end?

Saturday July 11th

The comic:

And the lights are probably off...

You should see me hunting for my glasses. I take them off and forget where they are like that. Once, I was looking for them while I was um... wearing them. No wonder everything was so clear!

But most of my "Since when do we have a door here?" bruises come when it is well-lit and my glasses are on.

Okay, I'm a million miles away. I watched Thelma and Louise tonight, I've got a song from Dil Chahta Hai in my head, and I'm thinking about rewatching Fanaa like now because Kajol is awesome.

But I'll go to bed and probably crash into something on the way there.

Friday July 10th

The comic:

Do people still name their cars?

Yeah, I've got nothing. Not only are Pluggers old, but so is everything around them?

Thursday, July 9, 2009

Thursday July 9th

The comic:

Sometimes Pluggerisms get so particular, and other times they're too broad.

This is one of those times. That first part of the sentence clinched it. Also, why is it always the dad who has an emptied wallet? That used to bug me about the Jetsons - if it's the future, why isn't Jane working? If you're a married parent, your wallet is empty no matter what your gender. Especially these days. Way to stick to the sexist cliches, Brookins.

Wednesday July 8th

The comic:

Does this mean their heads are likely to explode? Or just that they have no traction?

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

Tuesday July 7th

The comic:

You're a Plugger if you have to force yourself to read a book. And you wouldn't read it if you hadn't put it on a list.

It can't be a good book or else you would have read the book instead of doing the chores.

Monday July 6th

The comic:

Um, this took me a while to figure out.

He's wearing overalls and sometimes those are called bib overalls.

I hate that I know that.

Also, Pluggers outgrow everything - I've seen the comics that prove it.

And is he saying Pluggers never stop being as messy as little kids? Ew.

Saturday July 4th

The comic:


Pluggers are the assholes shooting off fireworks in their backyard whether it's legal or not, scaring my dog silly and pissing me off.

I hate fireworks.

Also, another shitty car? I assume it's American-made, in honor of the Fourth.

I'm sorry.

I believe I looked at the Pluggers from the 17th and just said "fuck it".

At the time, I'd been spending less and less time online and more time asleep and reading. Also, I think I was getting a bit depressed, as I watched less and less Bollywood movies.

Writing about Pluggers is emotionally and creatively draining.

Also, that guy runs classics like every other week.

Happy fourth!

Unlike other times when I took off, this time I don't think I'll be covering the days I missed.* Sorry.

ETA: *This is subject to change, of course.

And this has NOTHING to do with watching two good Bollywood movies last night and seeing one in a MOVIE THEATER for the first time since February. Or maybe everything. Man, Omkara is awesome.
