    It's a disgrace that they let ETs serve in the Army now.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Either that's a deleted scene from the upcoming remake of Starship Troopers or Bok has gone full edge. Women in combat? Check. Gays in the military? Check. Interracial marriage? Check.

    none of them appear to be differently-abled. Unless the sunglasses mean they're blind

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Dodgy mustache? Check. Woman not allowd to take point? Check. Soldier pointing his weapon at his husband? Check. Assault weapons? Check.

  • Almanian.||

    Check please!

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Misogynistic view of a woman's vanity? Check. Mad Max style barren wasteland? Check. Allusions to Nazi Germany? Check.

  • Almanian!||

    You know who else made allusions to Nazi Germany...

  • Rick Santorum||

    Hitler.

  • Almanian!||

    Really? REALLY?

    *ducks and runs out of room*

  • Bobarian||

    10 round (7 in New York) assault clip, amirite

  • $park¥||

    none of them appear to be differently-abled

    Are you kidding? At least the woman and the black dude have no hands.

    And you just know why only the white dude is wearing knee pads.

  • Cliché Bandit||

    One has aspergers

  • Certified Public Asskicker||

    Gay and interracial? Too soon Bok, too soon.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Too late, CPA.

  • Ted S.||

    NEEDS MOAR LABELZ

  • Almanian.||

    I gotta give it up to Bok - he's no Henry Payne.

    Happy Friday, Reasonoids.

    PS No, fuck you, cut spending!

    Jeez, what did I do?

  • LTC(ret) John||

    You scripted, post.

  • sarcasmic||

    Also, fried chicken.

    there's a little box on the right of the screen that says this is trending on Facebook:

    Work of Nut Job With No Connection to Reality - Hit & Run : Reason

    That's an unnecessarily harsh assessment of the H&R commentariat

  • $park¥||

    That's an unnecessarily harsh surprisingly accurate assessment of the H&R commentariat

  • Longtorso||

    Wouldn't that refer to the articles?

  • ||

    thanks for stepping on my joke

  • Longtorso||

    "Work of Nut Job With No Connection to Reality" will be the name of my newsletter, which will combine the anon-bot's musings, Warty/Epi slashfic, and pics from Bok's best work - a colonoscopy he had done in '06 when he was shitting blood.

    I'm accepting subscriptions.

  • Almanian!||

    I am interested in your newsletter, and would, in fact, like to subscribe to it.

  • General Butt Naked||

    What the fuck are those fucking things?

    Fucking Jesus, man, either Bok's lost his goddamn mind or he's hip to something out there that we'll never understand. Shine on you crazy diamond.

  • Tonio||

    +1 Collection of small furry animals gathered together in a cave and grooving with a pict.

  • sarcasmic||

    I snickered.

  • Almanian!||

    OT: I decided to make my handle a little more emphatic. Hence, the "!".

    Hope you all like it!

    !!

  • Almanian!||

    PS WHERE THE FUCK ARE MY MOURNING LYNX???!

  • sarcasmic||

    They read this cartoon and, already being in a state of depression, killed themselves.

  • ||

    Again, not my fault.

  • Almanian!||

    You are making me laugh this morning.

    I dub thee, "MOURNING LYNX GUY". You are an EXCELLENT substitute! Thank you.

  • ||

    Emphatic? I saw it more as vibrant and sassy. Kinda like Oliver! but better fed

  • General Butt Naked||

    I GIVE ALMANIAN!'S NEW LOOK TWO SNAPS UP!

    *snaps*

  • Almanian!||

    Thanks! I'm on RuPaul's Dragway next week!

  • sarcasmic||

    How's the weather out there?

  • Almanian!||

    Widely scattered dark turning to widely scattered light during the day, with a chance of wind.

    Not so bad here in the Metro Detroit area. It will be worse going home.

    BUT ENOUGH ABOUT MY WIFE!

  • Jesus H. Christ||

    Almanian! is in rare form. Must have gotten laid last night.

  • SugarFree||

    This is what happens when you change the sacred definition of a word that hasn't always meant anything like what I what it to not be changed from!

  • Tonio||

    Brilliant, Sug.

  • Longtorso||

    Why is the guy in the middle about to shoot his husband in the ass?

  • ||

    Bok's making a dirty joke. Just ignore him.

  • sarcasmic||

    Why is the chick left handed?

  • SugarFree||

    She's disabled.

  • General Butt Naked||

    She's obviously retarded; wearing a turtle-neck sweater and toboggan in the desert an' all.

    Dames, I tells ya.

  • SugarFree||

    Flak burka.

  • Proprietist||

    Flak Burkas would be an awesome band name.

  • ||

    This was actually pretty good. Admit it you cynical cunts.

  • General Butt Naked||

    This was actually pretty good.

    No it wasn't.

  • ||

    Who hurt you, General?

  • General Butt Naked||

    Well, Bok has murder-droned about 6 years worth of my Friday mornings.

    So there's that.

    And also, this "funny" is dog shit.

    *scribbles* Gays.

    Deconstructed.

  • ||

    Duh, if you were a real general you'd know that drones--by definition--can't murder.

  • Almanian!||

    No. You can't make me.

  • Tonio||

    And I assume that married couples are not allowed to serve in the same unit for two very obvious reasons: avoiding conflict of interest, and risk of wiping out the entire family (like the Sullivan brothers in WWII).

  • LTC(ret) John||

    Depends on your definition of "unit" - there was a married couple together at Bagram AF, in CJTF 180 with me (the husband's name was "Thor" - true story). Of course, CJTF 180 was almost everyone in AF.

  • SugarFree||

    I tried to get Groovus to change his handle to Thor Cockhammer when registration came, but he thought it would lead to all the women hounding him for his "autograph."

  • Tonio||

    Ahem!

  • SugarFree||

    Since there are no women libertarians, it's pretty obvious that I was just making a joke.

  • ||

    Your wish is my command, Jokey Smurf!-D

  • Loki||

    How did you find out my real name?

  • Tonio||

    Well, obviously not a problem at the division level or above, but I've never served so don't know where the actual cutoff is. That's why I was deliberately vague. Also referencing a specific type of Army/Marine unit would have scotched the Sullivan Bros reference.

  • Virginian||

    Splitting up the Niland brothers following the death of the Sullivan brothers didn't work out too well.

  • Agammamon||

    They can - they can't be in the same chain of command (a line drawn on the org chart between you and the CO can't include your spouse, or vice versa) and there are limits as to how closely you work together (in the navy at the minimum they couldn't be in the same workcenter).

  • Agammamon||

    The navy doesn't take any particular precautions to prevent family members fromserving together and you can potentially even arrange for you and a sibling to be assigned to your first unit together (if you enlist at the same time).

  • DJF||

    Doesn't he know that women walk in front in combat zones, how else do you find land mines.

  • Tonio||

    My understanding is that some tribesmen actually do have their women go first when traversing a known minefield.

  • Virginian||

    Supposedly that became the custom in Kuwait when the Iraqis invaded. I think it's apocryphal though.

  • VG Zaytsev||

    I laughed.

  • Almanian!||

    PWND!

  • General Butt Naked||

    In the past, I too, have laughed.

  • Bobarian||

    I used to laugh, but then came the Friday Funnies...

    Now I weep.

  • MJGreen||

    Whew, that nearly flew over my head. It would help if the two guys were labeled in bold letters "GAY", and maybe the woman with "BIMBO" or something like that. And maybe identify one of the guns as an assault rifle, to skewer a whole other controversy.

    That's how you write a cartoon, my friends.

  • Loki||

    So what you're saying is "NEEDS MOAR LABELZ!"

  • Agammamon||

    Instead of "bimbo" she could be labelled "LT".

  • ||

    Chip has just highlighted another unintended consequence of females in combat roles; male troops having to deal with incessant compliment-fishing by their female counterparts.

  • Bobarian||

    Possible grounds for intentional fratricide?

    Or would it be co-edicide? Soroiticide?

  • Proprietist||

    I always assumed Bok was a Korean name. For years I've been picturing some middle aged Asian dude behind the easel. Guess not...
