Nice caricature of Stephen Hawking in panel 3! Looks just like him.
Love Stephen Hawking Bug. I did hear that he divorced his wife and married his nurse. If you can’t trust Stephen Hawking to be faithful, jeez….
I had a tree fall on my head and got a lot of stitches and bruising. I stayed in for a week because I felt like crap and also to spare my husband the looks.
According to Wikipedia, he was married to a fellow student, had kids, separated, later married his personal care assistant (nurse), and divorced. Former nurses have claimed he abused them.
Sorry to shatter your (and my) illusions.
I think you read it wrong. Here is what’s written in Wikipedia (your link):
the couple divorced In October 2006 amid claims by former nurses that she had abused him.
Apparently it’s the other way around, his ex-wife abused him. Nothing said he abused the former nurses though.
Ps: I can hardly see how a man with condition could abuse women…
Well obviously it’d have to be verbal.
I’m in love with the second panel. I’m hoping you’ve got a translation, Adam? And a whole alphabet maybe for the next sketch Saturday?
Wit a grammar primer for the end of the month?
My friend actually had this incident with his girlfriend when she got kicked by a horse. One lady in a grocery store actually went up to them and told his girlfriend that “you can do better than him.”
She can always says “A horse kicked me.” on a flat tone.
I bet the old lady will say “Well, that’s a new one.”
Also, can I say that I really love the alien writing? I didn’t really admire it until after posting my first comment, but it’s pretty awesome.
Thanks! Making up letters that don’t look like letters of the alphabet was trickier than I thought it’d be.
is it just me, or i think the font just like people doing yoga
Bill Waterson of Calvin and Hobbes would be proud
Oh no! I’ve reached the end of the archive. No more multiple bugs a day for me. *sniff*
A sad day that comes to us all. But now you can look forward to that “special” time of the day. Unless it’s a weekend
It’s kinda like if your significant other does boxing for a living, or possibly roller derby, or if they’re like mine… Medieval battle re-enactment. Course what’s fun is when people say “wife beater” or “abusive,” I like to point out things like “You should see the bruise she gave me!” Also the alien language reminds me of worm-like creatures dancing, or doing yoga.
Yes! I was just thinking of that as I read someone else’s reply here about the lady in the grocery store telling the woman that she could do better than him. I was thinking a good reply would be, “Yeah, I know…that’s why I’m the Queen!” I know I’ve bumped into coffee tables and such and instead of cursing, cried out, “GOOD!” SCAdian, by chance?
Yup, been a SCAdian for a little over 2 years now.
Eleven years in Avacal here. Middle Son’s new girlfriend is taking up armoured fighting, and is greatly enjoying smacking her man (my son) about the helmeted head. She laughs so delightfully as she unleashes on him that it’s hard not to laugh along with her.
I normally don’t wear makeup but… I leaned in for a hug and a kiss one day, my husband saw me coming and moved his arm up, and I ran eye first into his elbow. I had a shiner for a week so I either stayed in as much as I could or put on makeup so no one would think he was a bad spouse.
Or at least that is what I tell myself happened.
I’ve had a similar thing happen once actually. My girlfriend was into some contact-sports and also enjoys grappling-sports with her friends.
One day one of her neighbours asked “Does your boyfriend hit you?” upon which she happily replied “Not more than I deserve” (you try to defend against an un-announced attack without leaving bruises), that took a while to sort out
You got a great gal there. “Not more than I deserve” is a hilarious response!
Is this the first time you’ve drawn a mouth? At least in this strip? It came out good.
Good catch. I cannot recall a mouth either. For that matter, I cannot recall a non-bug character.
You guys need to go dig around in the archives. Adam has done humans, animals and Cthulhu (or however that last one is spelled).
Hit random. Went through 20 or so previous comics. Encountered one cartoon with a spatula headed something and a whisk headed something. Not speaking parts. Found one with a speaking mountain. The mountain said, “No”. Found one with two scorpions making love. Each had a speaking part. Technically, they were still bugs.
Dave, I went through all the strips from the beginning
Not even a bug in this one, though cat is a little buggy
I too, want to add that I love the alien bugs and the Stephen Hawking bug. Now that’s artistic talent!
My mom had an undiagnosed heart condition where she would, without warning, pass out. She once fell off a step stool and broke some ribs. But before that, she was walking with a friend along the canal bank, passed out, fell straight forward and broke her nose, resulting in classic double black eyes.
If you didn’t know she had a heart problem, you’d think my dad had punched her.
Just like the Eiffel Tower is visible from every window in Paris, a Saturn-like planet must be visible in all alien landscapes.
It’s like a law or something.
And the planet always has craters on it. Don’t forget those.
I love the resigned, “Aww, Dammit” in the first panel. This guy knows what’s coming from everyone, and there’s nothing he can do about it.
There is just too much to love about this comic. I’d take all day to comment about all of it.
Good one, Adam! Keep ‘em coming!
I once rolled over to give my wife-of-3-weeks a goodnight kiss, and clocked her with my elbow. I felt horrible! The next morning, I was up first and when she came out of the bathroom the whole side of her mouth was swollen and purple. I started crying and asked her if it hurt. She laughed and pulled the wad of toilet paper out of her cheek and said, “No, it’s just makeup.”
I just looked at her and said, “My brothers are really gonna love your sense of humor.”
And they do.
The “I ran into a door” excuse that WOMEN make shows lack of imagination. If I ever did actually run into a door I would make up something extraordinary. People still wouldn’t believe it, but they might give me points for imagination!
This kind of happened to my wife once; she had the flu, complete with dizziness and a fever of 103. I woke up one evening to a loud THUD and a moan to discover she had walked down the hallway and passed out face-first onto the floor vent. Cue me rushing her to the hospital and having to deal with all kinds of “No, how did you REALLY get hurt?” I had a doctor try to make me leave the room so she would be able to speak in private. Bug in the first panel was roughly my reaction when I realized what I was in for.
This actually happened to me, a few months ago.
My (now ex-)fiancee was just not taking care of herself; almost no sleep, eating very little, etc. (one of the many reasons she’s “ex” – and yes, she also had many *good* qualities, too). She also weighed about 95 pounds dripping wet.
She was at her college and was pushing a heavy door open, not really paying attention, and – BAM! – it hit her in the head.
She didn’t do anything about it, and then, a few days later, she was getting out of her car when someone whipped into the space beside her driver’s side. In pulling the door back to keep it from being ripped off by the unobservant person, guess what? Yep, BAM! – on the same side of her head.
When we went to the hospital after that second hit (she had a definite concussion), the resident on duty badgered her for a good 10-15 minutes to tell him, “what REALLY happened!!!” (I was being kept out of the room.) She kept telling him what happened -but he didn’t want to believe him. Finally, after she had been crying for about 14 of the 15 minutes, he got tired of the whole thing and left. One of the many problems with that resident …
On a much happier note, I LOVE the comic, and particularly the alien bug antennae. And kudos on the created language – I bet that it *did* take a long time!
love the aliens and alien language in the second panel!
A couple of alien letters look familiar … from some asian language ..
*computer voice* excelent work, i am impressed.
…just not the same in type
can stephen hawking speak with emoticons? he does have a computer for a voice…
see dr mcninja monster mart story
I…really don’t understand this. So she walked into a door, then… it’s domestic violence? Hawkings? Hitler eating babies?
I feel like I must be missing something big here, but I really don’t get what this is supposed to mean…
With the hair trigger sensitivity to domestic violence, anytime a woman receives an injury to the face, somebody will suspect domestic violence and any man in her life will be viewed with suspicion.
“I walked into to a door” was the traditional excuse for a woman to explain a black eye after a man had punched her (*shudder*, boy do I have a lot of cultural programming against that.) Apparently it was chosen as the only object one could hit with one’s face accidentally without implying a drunken fall.
As I have created few “alien fonts” for personal use I would like to know what these aliens actually say or it’s just random gibberish…
