  • NotSure||

    This actually is a funny one, did the cartoonist get replaced by the body snatchers or something ?

  • R||

    Would have been better if he hadn't basically explained the joke in the text. At least three lines need to be stricken.

  • Randian||

    Yes. "At private dinner. 40K a plate" would have been sufficient.

  • plu1959||

    All that was missing was a label on the cat: "FAT CAT"

  • Formerly Almanian||

    PWNED

  • ||

    Considering that "cat" looks more like a fox to me, it really did need the label.

    PWN'D 2.0

  • Bucky||

    a blue colored cat would seem appropriate...

  • John Tagliaferro||

    It would have been better with "a puppy in every pot."

  • Bucky||

    german shepard's pie

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    It will be even bleaker once Payne removes Garfield.

  • ||

    Obligatory link for the unaware.

  • Fatty Bolger||

    Thanks, that's great.

  • Jerryskids||

    I am waiting for the $400-a-plate dinner. 99% cheaper so even the poorest among us can afford it.

  • Y||

    $400?!? You 1%er, us poor folk are waitin' for the $9.95 all you can eat buffet (Kids eat free)

  • Randian||

    Needz moar Wal*Mart

    Hey, aneurysm was actually my IRL first guess! Go me!

    Thanks for the response; I appreciate it.

  • db||

    GM, my dad died of an aneurysm. I wasn't there when it happened but I don't remember people mentioning him freaking out, just complaining of intense pain for hours once they got him to the hospital. Are there types that fuck with behavior before becoming fatal?

  • ||

    Not typically, but it depends on where the offending cerebral insult originates. If there are drastic changes in behavior prior to the event, it's etiology almost always lies elsewhere and is secondary, not primary. As I posted to TAO, I suspect there is more going on than just the aneurysm.

  • db||

    Thanks for the reply. His attending neurologist told my sister and I that there was some medical data leading some to conclude that aneurysm could be hereditary, and due to a systemic weakness in the walls of blood vessels due to some unknown hereditary factor. Any truth to that? This was over 10 years ago and I haven't followed up on it for a long time.

  • ||

    Yep, that is spot on. The best way, unfortunately, to guard against aneurysm is to have a family HX of them, and take care accordingly. They are congenital and it's unknown when they can rupture.

  • db||

    Awesome! Now I really can live every day as if it might be my last!

  • Paul.||

    Not typically, but it depends on where the offending cerebral insult originates

    The offending cerebral insult originated with his wife [falsely] accusing him of child abuse.

    I'm am here all ze veek.

  • WWNGD?||

    The only way to fight greed is to demand more money.

  • Bardas Phocas||

    What? No Obama eats dog - dog eat dog - or other such dog-related jokes.
    Dogs are the issue of the week Payne - get with the fucking program.

  • Formerly Almanian||

    Gives new meaning the the word "doggie treat"....

    HIYO! I'll be here for the next 5 minutes, folks! Enjoy the chicken fingers...I mean FIDO STRIPS.....hahahahahaha!

    But seriously....what's up with Oprah?

  • ||

    But seriously....what's up with Oprah?

    The OWN channel's misfire is apparently on par with Payne levels of failure, and barely exceeds Bok's.

    I guess that's what happens when Oprah's no longer handing out free swag. There's a lesson in there somewhere.

    Once again, Friday Funnies FAILS with the funny. I don't know what I would do if one was actually, you know, funny. I'd probably have a stroke.

    This one is simply a freshly gelded handful of bull testicles.

  • Formerly Almanian||

    freshly gelded handful of bull testicles

    Your description of this excrement approaches Saccharine Man levels of beautiful.

    May this evil "comic" be banished from your memory. I wish you a good and productive day, sir.

  • Lord Humungus||

    hahaha.

  • Formerly Almanian||

    This one is Payneful. HAH!

    Happy Friday, Reasonoids. We're like jolly green giants roamin' the earth....with GUNS...

  • Randian||

    If I didn't know better, I'd swear you were drunk all the time.

    As a matter of fact, I don't know better...

  • Brian from Texas||

    Reminds me of my parents' cat. He's orange and quite heavy around the belly too.

  • Tim||

    Does he support a cut in the capital gains tax?

  • Brian from Texas||

    I doubt it. His two biggest concerns seem to be sleeping and lots of cat treats.

  • db||

    Sounds more like OWS than a 1%er.

  • AlmightyJB||

    Ha:)

  • Restoras||

    So your cat is a welfare queen?

  • Lord Humungus||

    I put my cats to work - using little carts, they haul coal up from the mines underneath my mansion.

  • AlmightyJB||

    Dogs are better workers.

  • Lord Humungus||

    true - but they're busy getting shot by the police.

  • Nyarlathotep||

    Or eaten by the POTUS.

  • Ex Nihilo||

    Aren't most cats? Or are they the 1%, with us as servants? I think the second.

  • Zeb||

    I'd agree. They are the 1% (god I hate that term). No one forces you to do anything for a cat.

  • Formerly Almanian||

    Also - the Ilitches are Bamster supporters? REALLY? I did not know this.

    I suppose the 1%ers line up behind whoever is the gummint teat provider o' the day.

    Fuck you, Ilitches. Your pizza sucks ASS. And I hope the Wings and Tigers defect to Montreal, ya cocksuckers.

    So there.

  • sarcasmic||

    Needs more labels.

  • H. Reardon||

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

    He feels our pain Payne.

    FTFY

  • ||

    The House of Payne is effect y'all! The House of Payne is in effect!

  • ||

    Also, fellow Reasonoids, I, of all people, have been nailed with the dreaded "Your comment contains a word that is too long (50 characters)", business.

    Apparently, the filter doesn't like nifty characters like the musical notes. Reason, I don't recall the gamboling idiots using HTML symbol codes!

  • Randian||

    Not only that, but we registered to fix the problem, and it has. Take down the PRIVation PRIVate property rules!

  • SugarFree||

    There is a war going on behind the scenes. It is getting pretty bad. That's the reason for the new problems.

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

    You can put the codes in like so ಥ_ಥ as long as there is text on either side.

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

    Well that worked.

  • db||

    You make it sound so sexy. I hope you've got rights to the screenplay. Glad I'm not tangled up in whatever is going on.

  • General Butt Naked||

    There is a war going on behind the scenes. It is getting pretty bad. That's the reason for the new problems.

    What the hell does this mean.

    I've seen the psycho over at sloop and banjo's(by the way, nice job guys) place recently shittin' and pissing everywhere. How fucking crazy are some people? The mind, it boggles.

    I'm just mad that we'll never be able to do the donderooooo thing anymore.

  • SugarFree||

    I can go into specifics. And I'm not just saying that to be mysterious, I just don't know them. Suffice it to say the 50 character error and Invalid post stuff wasn't instituted for shits and giggles.

  • SugarFree||

    *can't* typing grumble

  • General Butt Naked||

    If I had to venture a guess, it would be that someone was trying to shit up the board with comments under the word limit, but using huge 'words'.

    Some people are just batshit insane. Could you even imagine being that obsessive? And all over something as stupid as an internet site where the commenters don't like you. Jesus.

    Again, boggled mind over here.

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

    Apparently trying to put other HTML codes into the post gets the message "Your comment does not appear to be written in an English script. Please comment in English."

    And this after all the gnashing of teeth about immigration.

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

    This could cause problems for Apatheist since his handle has codes in it.

  • db||

    All i see on my android is some underscores after his name. On a regular browser i get the little monocle guy.

  • ||

    Apathiest shouldn't have a problem.

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

    His handle has a "ಠ_ರೃ" at the end.

  • ||

    Sparky, you lovable doofus, I couldn't post musical note in the comment field, but I could use one as handle. Apathiest is fine.

    If I'm wrong you win a freebie colonoscopy.

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

    Well that's good to know. In that case I have a proposal. In honor of the new squirrely commenting system we should all change our handles to code based names. BRB

  • $öç íñδ√ Sparky||

    Test

  • ||

    I'm touched by everyone's concern for my handle.

  • db||

    Like which

    HTML

    codes? I dont seem to have a problem.

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

    Codes like "ಠ" and such

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

    LOL, OK then. Stupid squirrel.

  • Ex Nihilo||

    SIC, the squirrels really hate you.

  • db||

    Oh, character codes. I dont use those.

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

    How did that dog get an invitation for a cat?

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

  • SugarFree||

    Fascinating. Tell me less.

  • Soc Indv Sparky||

    That's what happens when you put a string of text in

  • SugarFree||

    So it posts blank rather than invalidating the post? Weird.

  • ||

    So it posts blank rather

    That was the solution all along...

  • Bee Tagger||

    He's going to be even more pissed when he finds out how the Republicans want to use his food for healthcare.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Lasagne?

  • Bee Tagger||

    Considering the rapid rise in diabetes amongst the poor and the Republicans desire to kill poor people, your comment makes a lot of sense. Once you fix the embarrassing typo, that is.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    I hate Mondays.

  • ||

    Odd. I thought libertarian owned the market on feeding pet food to the elderly.

    I guess ObamneyCare will also be conscripting vets for medical care to cover all the euthanasia overflows.

  • AlmightyJB||

    The comments are funnier than the funny.

  • Ice Nine||

    Would've been funnier with a cat instead of a fox.

  • SugarFree||

    It looks like a dyspeptic bear to me.

  • ||

    Ursist!

  • ||

    At least he's not _eating_ them!

  • NAR||

    Hmmmm. The two most progressive presidents we've had, the ones who did the most to change the way we address income disparities and class, were Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt. Both of whom were fat cats.

    In fact, the majority of our founders would have been considered "fat cats" when the country was new, and what they were trying to do was remove power from the ultimate fat cats -- British royalty -- and give it to the people.

    America is different in that there has always been an upper class that recognizes their privilege comes as a result of not only their own good and hard work, but also the general populace and workers who make it possible.

  • ||

    No.

  • Bucky||

    i wish you would jsut stop spamming...

  • Timrek||

    This is Pulitzer level funny! Or at least it would be if it fawned all over the awesomeness that is OBAMA.
