Adventures in Potty-Sitting

For those who prefer their heroes to have a touch more whimsy, I think it's also fair to say that our toilet-seat snare would be just the sort of trap that Cato would have arranged for Inspector Clouseau in one of the later Pink Panther movies.

Details Following the Crash Report

So I thought about fixing that last panel where I drew myself exiting the frame but it turned out looking on the screen as though I wiped my face with the kind of "vanishing cream" Jerry always used to use in the old Tom & Jerry cartoons.

I decided not to.

You'll Need to Put This Comic Together Yourself

Two things:

1.  Yes, I realize Ikea Man's cape should be blue like his mask.  I'm an idiot.
2.  It took me a while to figure out, but I think we can all agree that Verdana is the most mild-mannered of all the fonts.

Live Feed

In actual fact, when you download the weight-loss app in Stick Figure Land, it triggers a program that causes your 3-D printer to create a gum eraser.

Name Calling

I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to Younger Daughter for the undignified way I introduced her earbuds in today's comic.

...followed by Threethiopia...

It's Tajikistan, incidentally.

Yes, I'm sure you knew it.

No, I promise I'm not being sarcastic.  I believe you when you say you were just about to say "Tajikistan" before you read it here.

You're very smart.

Marvel's The Awful Picture

Eerily, the two figures have almost identical stories:
One was a thief who became a superhero.
The other was a dandy highwayman who became a goody two-shoes.

Hopefully This Will Be Okay...

Now that I see the phrase "little oat nubs" written down like that, it seems as though it would have been a better made-up name for a breakfast cereal than for a soap ingredient.

"WOW, Mom!  These are delicious - like sweet little flavor-packed nubs of oat!"
