Artificial Light

9 August, 2011


Almost  a year later, a new comic. Wonder how long it’ll be until the next one!


so, it snowed a lot.

also, turns out there is actually a bitters shortage.

thing number three: next time it snows in the dc area, no more “cute” puns like SNOWpocalypse, or SNOWmageddon, or SNOWmygod, or whatever. it’s now just “it’s gonna snow,” or “snow storm.” four feet of snow later, you’re allowed to just say what it is. seriously.

(that’s right, hipsters. irony is out. earnest is now cool.)

oh, and stop throwing snowballs at police officers. i shouldn’t have to tell you that.

*tip o’ the hat to MAC for “Girl-pants.”


Make sure you brush your ass before you go to sleep! The sad thing is, I’m not convinced that the mouth side would produce any better words.

*Yup. Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), who took his seat over from his dad, Duncan Hunter (whoo, democracy!), said the following:

[T]he military is not civilian life, and I think the folks that have been in the military that have been in these very close situations with each other — there has to be a special bond there, and I think that that bond is broken if you open up to the military to transgenders, to hermaphrodites, to gays and lesbians.

Of course, you know you can’t “special-bond” with no queers. And you certainly can’t “special-bond” while being honest about who you are. That would be crazy!


Sometimes, I wonder if a woman could win a Senate seat if she had posed naked in a magazine. Because I just learned a man can.

But, this all makes a little more sense, though, if you realize that America has battered-wife syndrome.


yeah, it’s my birthday. whoo. in lieu of gifts and wishes of wellness, please send irish whiskey (non-protestant only, please).


well, my friends, a happy thanksgiving. may your turkeys be free-range and your sweet potatoes organic.


oh, and what’s happening over here?
