  1. Come on guys. There are a lot of ways something like this could have worked. This isn’t one of them. Friday Funnies has been such a misnomer for a long time, with only an occasional exception. Please find something that is actually funny…

  2. Demanding to be amused without oneself producing amusement works about as well as producing fiat-money.

  3. Dear Mr/Ms Obsolescence,

    Do you also hang out a comedy clubs with bad comics and tell the bored audience the same thing?

    Perhaps more relevant than your comparison though would be if someone gave me a coin claimed to be gold and it turned out to be plate only. I would be entitled to complain. The Friday Funnies claim to be something they seldom are. Merely asking that they live up to their claim does not require me to produce funny cartoons.

    I’d even settle for insightful but not funny once in a while.

  4. Stating the obvious is not comedy gold.

  5. In Payne’s favor he avoided the helicopter cliche.Probably only because they are hard to draw.

  6. Happy Kwanzaa !

    Today’s Principle:
    Umoja (Unity)
    To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race.

  7. I thought the joke was that he couldn’t afford a helicopter. Because gas is too expensive. Or the President might need it, to flee the country. Or something.

    But I think “hard to draw” comes closer to the truth.

  8. To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race.

    Were I to have any desire to do so, maintaining “unity in [my] race” (a moronic concept) would most likely get me investigated by the FBI.

  9. To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race.

    Collectivism in the form of racism is fun! Right?

  10. If you don’t like Kwanzaa go create your own holiday you Crackers!

  11. If you don’t like Kwanzaa go create your own holiday you Crackers!

    “Take Somebody Else’s Wife to a Long, Slow, Naked Lunch Day” sounds good to me.

  12. it turned out to be plate only

    Demand your money back.

    I would be entitled to complain

    How effective has complaining been? If it amuses you, knock yourself out.

  13. “Take Somebody Else’s Wife to a Long, Slow, Naked Lunch Day” sounds good to me.

    just take her down to hassan’s rumpus room. watch for baboons.

  14. Truly pitiful.
    It succeeds in suckitude in that it fails on so many levels.

  15. A trained chimpanzee can draw funnier comics in the sand with a stick.

  16. It might be funny or shocking if you weren’t dealing with “helicopter” Ben.

    He beat you to the punchline a long time ago.

  17. I’ve never figured out why Libertarians on Reason rip on Friday funnies so much….. Political cartoons, as a class of comedy, just aren’t that funny in general. Usually they’re just snippets of commentary that – for most libertarians I’d imagine, and certainly speaking for myself – are just depressing. If you look at the state of politics in America, I don’t find much of anything funny. Give Chris Bok, etc. a break though would ya? Or better yet – how about we start a thread giving him captions to draw cartoons from.

  18. He beat you to the punchline a long time ago.

    I nominate that as thread-winner. đŸ˜‰

  19. Am I the only one that found this comic amusing?

  20. My friend Jianyi hu from the Netherlands makes his effort to recommend me a superb leveling website http://www.gmlvl.com. I know he ever made three orders , package of Fast lvl55-70, package of Fast lvl70-80, custom order lvl73 – 75. they were done safe and sound in advance. he is so pleased with their terrific handleveling service that more orders should be placed with more lower price due to Christmas arrival.

    http://www.gmlvl.com offer all kinds of leveling packages, nonstop or part-time leveling.
