Samara-Bug is my new favorite character.
I love that holy water is Bugs first choice for sick kids. (and wow… when bugs projectile vomit…!!!)
That’s some well-drawn kiddie-puke.
But usually they throw up on something hard to clean, like a treadmill.
Projectile vomiting. Apparently this is something I was quite skilled at as a child. I’m told I once vomited the length of a dinner table seating my entire family during a holiday get-together.
First grade, so 1964 (yeah!)…in class. Kid just all of a sudden vomits on the desktop where he’s sitting.couldna been more than six feet away from me. Covered the entire little desktop. No clue what was going wrong. Couple of times I had to hurl in Jr Hi, had a little more notice, maybe 5 seconds.
Sometimes it happens really really damn fast.
Even as a kid, I always wondered how other kids would just start bazooka-barfing right where they stood. I always made it to the bathroom. Now, when I was older and drinking…well, even then I only missed once and only by a few feet. I was IN the bathroom, but missed the toilet by a bit. Lemme tell ya, pink vodka vomit dries like CONRETE!!
And I have no idea why it was pink. By the time I was drinking vodka, I was pretty well out of it (or so they told me).
That’s probably more than anyone wanted to know, huh?
HEY! Look at niece bug scaring grown up Bug!
Jeff, you normally make me smile or laugh softly to myself with your comments. Today, the “pink vodka” story had me cracking up. Between you and Adam, this is a great start to the day.
Once I was old enough to walk, I always made it to a bathroom, too. Honestly, I only saw another kid NOT make it to at least a garbage can once. It was like liquid dog food dripping off all sides of his desk. Bleh.
I’ve been following your comic for a few years now, and this is one of the best strips i’ve read!! Please consider doing a follow-up!!! =)!!!!
PD: Sadako/Samara bug rulz!
People who think I’d be good with kids have never seen me with a kid for more than 5 minutes. That’s about my limit of patience. After that I wonder where the booze and other grownups are.
Of course, hanging out with kids with a drink in your hand prevents you from having those horribly boring conversations with some adults and you’re numb after a while anyway. AND the other adults think you’re a saint for putting up with the kids.
Who knows. Kids still scare the crap outta me sometimes. Kids and big dogs.
The ones that will look you in the eye while they do exactly what you told them not to do, those are the ones that give me the hibby-jibbies.
AMEN. This from an elementary school teacher. Personally, I consider it a strange and unusual gift that I can put up with kids most of the time, and I don’t like over-taxing it. So when we’re at a family get-together or Sunday school outing…… please stop assuming that I really WANT to watch over the kiddies. I’m overrun with them all week. Lemme ‘lone and pass the beer.
“Heh. They’re talkin’ to you’ -FTW
Considering that Niece Bug has been known to pack an Uzi, I’d be jumpy too.
What’s with the low resolution? Can’t read it.
Never mind. Phone was acting funny.
i knew a guy who threw up and it BOUNCED.
I’m not sure how I pulled it off, but I remember vomiting once as a kid, then deciding I didn’t like it. I’ve only vomited once since, in over 20 years, and that was because of something I was allergic to.
If I ever feel nauseous, I just remember that vomit tastes nasty and I’m able to keep it down.
I had a habit of throwing up on the floor in public. At home I could get to the bathroom just fine, though. My sister, on the other hand, had a habit of barfing in her bed at night without even waking up. It was nasty, to say the least.
I would actually b freaked out if I heard lil kids singing that
With every stone she shed a tear, ditaty dotaty nownownow!
Or something like that. It was in The Birds.
