How the Scan-Tron Actually Got Its Name (comic)


We’ve all been there. You had to use a #2 pencil, as if any other option was available at the store, and fill in the bubbles completely.

But do you know the origin of the test? Do you know how it actually got its name? The answer may surprise you.

The answer may also not surprise you. It’s kind of up to you.

This is a preface to tomorrow’s comic Myths No Match for Wikipedia, Despite Wikipedia.

Age Old Joke Takes Dark Turn; Escalates Quickly (COMIC)


You know the age-old joke, “Why is 6 afraid of 7.” Well what happens when the smart-ass kid you’re telling it to already knows the joke?

Well apparently, you ruin their childhood.

Bible Study: Let’s Murder Some Kids (comic)


The Bible isn’t just an all-time best-seller, it’s a work of wonder, mystery and incredible tragedy.

The Bible doesn’t just tell us how to live our lives, but also tell us how we should never, ever, ever live our lives. It has passages of unbelievable savagery, assuming you believe any of the grace of it in the first place.

Think you know the Bible? Take the GlossyNews Unbeatable Bible Quiz!

These are all legitimate passages from the Bible (with citations.) So before you pray for an easy commute or fair weather, consider asking your god why he was such an unbelievable dick to those who came before you. Read the full story

There Is(n’t) No Morality w/o the Bible (comic)


The argument is everywhere. Without the Bible, there would be no morality. Well that’s obviously untrue, since atheists are disproportionately absent in jails.

Blame that on the lack of education of many Evangelicals (especially the home-schooled crowd) if you like, but you’ve got an all-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful being on your side. We just have science. Read the full story

Why did the hipster boycott the solar eclipse? (comic)


Kind of a hard thing to boycott, an act of nature such as that. I guess you can bury your head in the sand and just pretend it didn’t happen, but why would you? A question only a hipster could answer.

I boycott tampons. I don’t use them and I refuse to buy them. They’ll get none of my money… but a solar eclipse? What’s not to like about that? What’s even to debate about that? It either happens or it doesn’t, and it kind of does, boycott or no. Read the full story

Wife Fails to Give Doves to Priest, Damned (comic)


Ever wondered what girls learn when they go off to a separate class while you’re busy learning about resisting the temptation to masturbate yourself blind? They’re learning about why their girly things happen, and you don’t want to know about it.

They possess the most amazing thing in the history of mankind, but it is disgusting in ways you could never imagine. It does things that are yicky, things that are gross, and things that would make you barf up your breakfast in about five seconds. Read the full story

There Are Only Two Ways Divorce Can End (comic)


If you’ve ever known someone who has been married, you know the pitfalls they face. An aging and perpetually less attractive spouse, inability to conscionably be with other sexual partners, and a general malaise that sits over your life like a 100-pound backpack.

Some look at it from a doom and gloom perspective, but others, as in this comic, see it in a much brighter light.

Remember, those who are engaged, there are only two ways out of a marriage, so make sure you do it for all the right reasons. Read the full story

Stop to Smell the Roses, Sunset, etc. (comic)


Sunsets are pretty, no two ways about it. You have to really stop and take them in. Watch the hues shift, take in the deep colors as they melt across the sky… but there’s more to it.

They’re red aren’t they? Awfully red. Why is that? You could argue it’s because God loves you and He knows what looks pleasing to you, or you could argue that it’s because you left your lights on, kept the coal-fired plant running longer, and now the environment is irreparably harmed.

Microsoft Office Assistant Finds New Life (comic)


Arguably one of the greatest inventions of software is the oft-forgotten fellow named “Clippy”. You remember him, he would constantly interrupt you when you were trying to do something productive.

If you started a document with the word “dear”, that worthless bucket of crap would show up to try to give you some completely useless advice you didn’t want, couldn’t use, and couldn’t figure out how to get rid of.

But in 2013, I became a cartoonist. Not a good one, mind you, but it is what it is. And in my world, Clippy still has some use.

Why is Spring so Dangerous for Dandelions (comic)


Obviously rain showers for spring flowers whatever, I’m sure there’s an axiom in there, but why are the common yard scourge the Dandelion so dangerous, especially in Spring, and why am I asking this is such elusive ways?

Deviant Ghost Takes Pants and Jacket Off (comic)


There was an album once with a similar joke in the title. That joke came to me a day after I started the comic, but it’s well worth including. Deviant ghosts? Oh, just ask the History Channel, they’re real.

These guys may become recurring characters, so I hope you like them well enough. You’ll see them at least one more time. Just wish I could draw better.

Johnny Appleseed’s True Legacy Revealed (comic)


We all learned the story of Johnny Appleseed as children, and for some reason we were taught that he was a great and noble man. He did charitable works, but that’s hardly the whole story.

As this comic points out, today he’d have quite a different name, as he travels the frontier-land planting non-native species of plants.

Hay is For Horses, But Some More than Others (comic)
