I love this comic, read it every day, thanks man
This makes total sense.
Oh dear god. I’ve had this stuck in my head the past 7 years. I never realized its destructive potential.
…you’ll have to excuse me. I have to find a pre-k class.
I’m a little h-bomb short and stout,
one day you’re sitting there the next you’re on a cloud …
Nice goin’ Adam. =)
I’m an AC outlet
rectangular and low
show me a fork
and I’ll make you glow
The little girl’s name – is it Mindy?
Awesome. Gold from the vaults, eh?
I’m a little tea pot short and squat
This is my handle and this is not.
I’m a little tea pot short and stout
Sock it to me baby let it all hang out
I demand more renditions!
This is totally possible 😀 and I wouldn’t put it past todays kids to b singing about effed up things 😛
MY EYES ARE MELTING!
It’s got a good beat. It’s easy to dance to. I’ll give it an 83.
“Go away” – a classic euphemism for “burn alive”! 😀 Love it, great as ever!
Surreal, macabre, and funny as heck. A+
Choked on breakfast when I read panel 3. One of the best yet!
My brother-in-law sings songs like this. I shared the comic with him.
Oh god, I love the little niece… and he’s just encouraging her. This is one of the funniest yet, which is saying a lot.
Oh, I’m going to be happily singing these all day. Now… off to find some little folk to corrupt!
I am ol’ glory
Hear the angels sing
One of them stands up
And then gets it’s wings
Best I could come up with.
I realized I messed up the song, so I’ll try again
……..I got noth’in
“Cut down the trees and gangsters as well!”
I.. Love.. IT! lovelovelovelove LOVE IT.
Fantastic! I love it! This strip is one of the perfect reasons why the site is my homepage 😀
Panels 3 and 4 are comic gold. Way to go, man.
I love the little niece bug! She’s so cute when she’s potentially destructive <3
*Like* Almost my exact comment. Niece bug is one of my favorite characters. She’s cute as heck and eeeeeevillllllll .
I love how he’s “handing it to her” to finish the verse. What else are uncles for, am I right?
I’m gonna start doing stuff like this to encourage my nephew haha my sister will hate me, but it’ll be so worth it.
Nothing, but *nothing* beats the artistry of the poetry of childhood.
When in danger, when in doubt
Run in circles, scream and shout
That little rhyme is one of my favorites. I heard it on MST3K. Does anyone know if they originated it?
I first saw that rhyme on Freefall: http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff100/fv00047.htm
There’s a folk rock album from the late 1960s called Running Jumping Standing Still; one cut off the album (I believe the title track) has the singer, Spider John Koerner, chant “When in danger, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout” in the middle of the bridge. So I’m gonna say no, MST3k didn’t originate it. No idea who did, though.
Oh man, panel three. Just panel three 😀
I’m a little chainsaw, sharp as hell!
I cut through trees and gangsters as well.
When you hear me revving a death knell,
Body parts will be yours to sell!
Well done, sir. I knew someone would finish that one for me.
But wait, there’s more! “Say” is a tough rhyme to start with, but here goes:
I’m a Molotov bomb, clear the way!
I’ll kill ‘dem Nazis, I’ll save the day
When you light my rag you’ll hear me say
Chuck me at those fascists and they’ll burn away.
Ahh, Russian nursery rhymes. In Soviet Russia… hm, can’t think of one.
I admit I would have gone Trees and Zombies vs. gangsters.
Thank you SOOOO much for this
People, didn’t any of you really listen to the songs you were taught as a kids? Most of them are absolutely horrific! They are what made childhood great! From songs about the plague, to being lost in the woods or mauled by animals, those songs are what kept the nightlight industry in business and put food on the table for thousands. Ahh, to be a kid again.
Rock-a-bye baby in the tree top, when the wind blows the cradle will rock, when the bough breaks the baby will fall, and down will come baby, cradle and all.
That’s sadism, right there. Apparently, we used to sacrifice infants to the wind god!
looks like there having a lot of fun in pannel 3 and 4.
i like little girl bug.
I was LOL at this, as not 15 minutes prior to reading this I was singing the teapot song to my daughter … It’s ok, everyone survived without injury.
Someday I hope to raise children and teach them equally devious ditties.
I love how excited the little girl is in panel 3
Nitpick: the ‘Molotov cocktail’ was a response by the Finns to the Soviet invasion and ‘Molotov breadbaskets’ (aerial bombs). It was used to blow up (rather, immobilise) ‘commie’ tanks, not fascists.
Adam, the first place I saw “run in circles, scream and shout” was in a Heinlein novel.
The whole thing is:
“When in danger, or in doubt;
Run in circles, scream and shout;
Give ’em hell, and fire a gun;
Run the signal up, Well Done!”
Its a very old traditional Navy ditty…Heinlein was a former Navy officer, and a lot of that traditional Navy stuff is all over his stories…especially in his expressed attitudes toward duty and courage.
Wel done indeed, DaBossTroll.
Heinlein is always so very quotable.
An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life. ~ Robert A. Heinlein

I thought it was
When in danger, when in doubt
Run in circles, scream and shout
Bang your head against the wall
Make it hell for one and all
“I chop down trees and gangsters as well”?!?!?!?!
I’ll be laughing all DAY on that line alone.
I’m a little handgun,
Short and cute.
Point me at your best friend
And listen to me poot.
I have decided i love your comic. Hand down the best one ever. Oh the joy.
The Molotov cocktails was invented by the Finns to throw at Soviet tanks invading under Stalin. Molotov was Soviet Premier under Stalin and made a number of insane remarks about the Finnish-Soviet war e.g. that Soviet planes only dropped bombs filled with bread for starving Finns. The Finns fastened on Molotov as the chief villain in the war and christened their new anti-tank weapon after him. As in, “Here Molotov have a cocktail!” Fwoosh.
So the song in pane 4 should be:
When you light my rag
Here me say
Chunk me at the Commies
and make them run away.
I’m a little sexpot, tall and thin,
Lubin’ up my boobs is not a sin.
When you hear me comin’,
Just roll me over and do it agin.
Shannon Love is correct. I was going to say what she said. I will instead just add that Finland was the only Eastern European nation to successfully avoid communist domination after WWII, no thanks to the US or UK, both of whom tried to help the Soviets capture it after reneging on their promises of aid to Finland. However, despite facing odds similar to those the Spartans faced at Thermopylae, the Finns managed to lose only about 10% of their land to the Soviets.
