Saw this great birdhouse at my parents’ house. My dad picked it up at an antique (read: junk) store somewhere.
“Teacher, my dog ate my Redbox movie”
The dog has apparently decided that plastic tastes good to him. Fortunately, Redbox was super cool with the whole deal and gave us a couple codes to punch into the kiosk: one to get the movie again (since it was trashed as well), and one for an extra plastic sleeve to return the disc.
Granted, they probably pay for their movies on a per-license basis and replacing a disc is a minimal cost to them, but it was still nice to see a company that values its customers.
I just realized it’s been over a year since I’ve last had an update, but never fear, dear readers (All 3 of you), I now have the WordPress iPhone App, so hopefully you’ll be hearing from me more soon. I may even make some more comics!
Until then, stay thirsty my friends.
It’s hard to believe, but today was the first time I’ve posted a comic in close to a year! Between getting married, buying a house, and work, I’ve been neglecting my faithful readership (of 3). I’m still working on some new ideas for comics, so stick with me, and hopefully it’ll be less than a year until the next one!
I’m probably the only crazy person that is bothered by some of the nicknames that people are given that don’t seem to make any sense, but the good folks over at Mental Floss have enlightened me. I can now die a happy man. Almost, I’m still waiting for that Baja Bug.
4. Why is Jack from John?
The name Jack dates back to about 1,200 and was originally used as a generic name for peasants. Over time, Jack worked his way into words such as lumberjack and steeplejack. Even jackass, the commonly used term for a donkey, retains its generic essence in the word Jack. Of course, John was once used as a generic name for English commoners and peasants, (John Doe) which could be why Jack came became his nickname. But the more likely explanation is that Normans added -kin when they wanted to make a diminutive. And Jen was their way of saying John. So little John became Jenkin and time turned that into Jakin, which ultimately became Jack
Today’s traffic was sun in my eyes with the occasional driver with his blinker left on. That is all.
Yes you read the title right, they have successfully (?) created a game show that combines all of these elements. Don’t ask me why or how, just enjoy:
