In panel three he says he’s hidden in the fridge but his voice clearly emanates from the freezer!
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!!
Where does he say he’s hidden in the fridge? He’s little, he could totally fit in the freezer! Totally acceptable!
P.S. no one cares about “first” here…just sayin’…
I’m pretty sure no one care about first anywhere…
Panel 3: Why does everyone think HE’S in the fridge? the “he he” is the fridge its self sarcastically / manically laughing at the fact the kid thinks “well ventilated with plenty of oxygen”.
Oh my gosh. I totally heard Kermit’s voice in my head on the first panel! And the little kid bugs always just kill me! I dunno why…
Hey Adam! Long time no see! Glad to see Bug is just as awsome as ever. How’s Ponytail Bug doing? She still packing mace?
Saw the last panel, and all I could think was “my coffin says ‘Frigidaire’ on it!”
So, what is a psa?
Public Service Announcement.
I remember those PSAs too. With all the money that must have been spent in making those ads and buying airtime, why didn’t they just convince fridge makers to install emergency release handles on the inside?
Wouldn’t fix all the existing fridges. These days, they’re just sealed, and I would imagine it’d be easy to push the door open from inside. Back in The Day™ they had latching door handles, so opening them from inside would be impossible.
I presume rather than add handles on the inside, they just redesigned them to remove the latches entirely.
that’s actually it exactly. the psa’s were because the older fridges had latches. It stopped applying after they removed the latches. All fridges must now be able to be opened with a minimum 15 pounds of pressure. so unless you stuck you’re baby in there most children would be fine.
In the first panel, is christsakes.misspelled or is it a word I haven’t heard of? Love your comics!
French here. What’s a PSA? Google suggests “Prostate-specific antigen”.
Public service announcement.
“I was frozen today!”
I do sometimes wonder how many other folks watch TGWTG videos. Glad to see another fan.
Oh, Lord. I suppose you’re going to tell us about the dangers of Big Wheels next. Or Jarts. How the hell did we survive our childhoods, anyway?
Not to mention all that lethal playground equipment installed on a rock-hard blacktop surface.
You had me burst out laughing at “Kermit.” Well played, sir!
When I reread the PSA in Kermit’s voice I died laughing, almost dropped my laptop.
Don’t really think this is a nitpick, but…
Not sure what you use for your fonts (if you use a computer font or hand letter) just wanted to point out that because your “U” has a stem, that it can look like two letters, a letter “L” and “I”. When I first read panel 3 the word “UTILIZE” looked like “LITILIZE”.
Yeah and in some places if you don’t put a stem on your U, they read it as a V instead. And if the stem is too long, it becomes a Y. – The Dutch have been quite creative at misspelling my surname.
Not to be crass but I had this EXACT issue with an autobiography on Clint Eastwood simply called CLINT. I am terribly sorry if I offended anybody but it’s a matter that must be addressed.
I was going to fix it, but I left it in to see if anyone would notice that my U got a little out of hand. I’ll probably tighten it up when I get home.
Was anyone else surprised to see Goddamned written out in the first panel? I thought swear words were usually censored. I remember a comic not too long ago that had asshole written as a**hole.
I normally don’t censor the “lesser” swear words (hell, damn, snuggle-bunnies). Besides, I think it’s funnier seeing “Goddamned” fully written out.
No snuggle bunnies or nerf herders allowed
Weird, I always considered Goddamn to be one of the more severe swear words, but then again I’ve met people who hardly consider Shit a swear. I guess it all depends on where you’re from.
That first panel is waaaaaay too damn funny!
People tend bad mouth ambulance chasing attorneys, but these were considered ‘attractive nuisances’ (like swimming pools without a fence), and it was eventually determined that you could still keep the food cold, and not make the cast-off appliance a death trap for (forever) young explorers.
Thanks for the inspiring reminder, Adam.
Does anyone else remember that Punky Brewster episode where Cherie got locked in one? My mother spent a full week saying, “See? SEE! That’s why you don’t hide in fridges!” I never liked Hide-and-go-Seek after that.
Seemed like all the after school specials were about appendix(s) bursting when we were growing up. Hubby and I have both noticed that we always check abdominal pain as if it MIGHT be our appendix
Laughed so much at that first panel.
I known a woman who lost one of her sons that way. He and another little boy with down syndrome were playing with it and he got trapped inside and the other kid wouldn’t let him out. He didn’t know any better. It was pretty bad.
See, that’s not entirely fair. All three of my friend’s children were diagnosed with down syndrome by various doctors while still in the womb, but none of them actually had it once they were born.
I remember a PSA where a woman said that if she saw you littering she would follow you home and kill you *or something*. Terrified the crap out of me, and now I don’t litter for fear she might be watching.
Occasionally those tossed-out refrigerators will protect you from nuclear blast, so don’t just be haulin them away.
