Great Expectorations by Adam | Jan 10, 2013 | 23 comments Today’s title is stolen from an episode of the Webcomics Weekly podcast.

The third panel is the exact reason I live a life of unorganised chaotic bliss 😀 Reply Rhea on January 10, 2013 at 12:49 am Never understood this. Never do this. Do guys somehow have more spit than they can swallow, like dogs never seem to have room in their mouths for their tongues? Reply Sarah on January 10, 2013 at 1:12 am I’ve always wondered this as well. Reply Thorbjørn on January 10, 2013 at 1:47 am I think it’s mainly bad manners combined with a skewed view of what’s manly. Apparently, for some disgusting = manly. Maybe you can tell me why most women make duck faces in pictures these days? Reply Margaret on January 10, 2013 at 2:47 am Unless you are trying to get with a duck that moronic face just makes you look ugly no matter how you look in reality. Reply Sarah on January 10, 2013 at 11:18 am Sorry…I don’t know that one either. I know some girls do it ironically to make fun of other girls, but I can’t speak for the ones who take hundreds of selfies in the same pose with their lips sticking out. Reply Margaret on January 10, 2013 at 2:45 am All I personally ask of those I know is to not spit on the ground or grass where we all might walk or sit. The sink or a trash can are acceptable. I understand sometimes you get phlegm or whatever. This is like the whole toilet seat fight though. We made a concession in our house where everyone has to close the toilet. Reply Mr Saturday Nite on January 10, 2013 at 6:23 am I don’t know about other guys, but for me there’s also a lot of phlegm in those hacks that I really don’t want to swallow. Reply AckAckAck on January 10, 2013 at 12:58 am Just spit it out of the windows. It will go “splat” on the asphalt and it will dry up and your germs and DNA will spread. It’s like animal making its territory. But rather than urine it’s spit. Reply tudza on January 10, 2013 at 2:34 am When you least expect it, expectorate. Reply tymime on January 10, 2013 at 3:51 am But… why not swallow? It’s already in your mouth and you swallow lots by accident anyway. Reply Dragonlady86 on January 10, 2013 at 5:29 pm because swallowing all that mucus makes my stomach turn? And throwing up while driving would be even worse. ugh. Reply Strandvaskeren on January 10, 2013 at 8:13 am I had a bit of a cold and a sore throat and was out driving when I coughed up a huge chunk of mucus/snot, yuck! No way I was going to swallow that again, so I rolled down the window and gave it my best shot. It got caught in the wind and ended up hitting the window frame right where the stick to lock/unlock the door is, some oozing down the side on the inside, some getting into the crack where the window comes up, some getting down the lock thingy, some getting on the seat belt.. I had to dismantle the door side to get it all out.. :-/ Reply Thorbjørn on January 11, 2013 at 12:24 pm Wow…I’m not buying used car next time around.. Reply Doug on January 10, 2013 at 8:22 am From the intro to a Yo-Yo Ma & Bobby McFerrin song, “A hush falls over the expectorant audience.” Reply Laura on January 10, 2013 at 8:51 am And THAT’s why I always keep something in the car 😀 Reply HL on January 10, 2013 at 6:33 pm I can’t get over the title.. It’s so much better than I expectorated. Reply Allen on January 10, 2013 at 11:00 pm I can’t believe this is a problem for anyone… This stupid notion of “guys do x to be manly” is getting old. I don’t think I have met a single guy that spits just to prove he has testicles. Now that I have covered that spitting isn’t manly, this whole wimpy thing of you can’t spit because its gross is truly pathetic. Seriously, all of you grow up and stop getting offended by people doing x. Reply Laura on January 11, 2013 at 2:11 pm Did someone spit in your cherrios? Reply LanceThruster on January 11, 2013 at 10:51 am Great Gobs of Fire! Just hock a loogie already! Who cares who’s looking? Only be sure do roll down the window…unless you really want to gross out your ‘audience’ (though keep your finger out of your nose. That’s just disgusting). Reply Colleen on January 18, 2013 at 10:43 am The epic dilemma, spit or swallow…. Reply Alex Hallatt on January 23, 2013 at 8:55 am My friend calls these “dockyard oysters”. She’s classy… Reply loudwhitenoise on January 30, 2014 at 9:06 am I had a glob of phlegm to get rid of and no tissue, so mum told me to spit it out the window. It came back in and sort of landed in and ran down my hair. Successful trollmum admittedly but I was not happy. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
