Tom the Dancing Bug: Billy Dare - The Full Story





  1. I’m thinking one could rewrite most if not all of the history of human civilization like this, and it would be more true.

  2. Metabolic processes are finally get the dramatic rendition they so richly deserve. For too long Hollywood has outright ignored these tireless workhorses who are treated like some invisible minority yet outnumber us ≈1.x10^15 to 1!

    1. Boing-Boing isn’t against copyright.

      Boing-Boing is against being a dick about copyright.

      Sorry for any confusion.

    2. “Why is this copyrighted? That’s a horrible blow against fair use.”

      Thank you for making it clear in your first two sentences that you know nothing about copyright, and especially the fair use aspect of copyright. That makes it much easier to ignore the rest of the comment.

    3. Don’t worry: I suspect most of the people who *didn’t* comment probably got the humour you intended just fine.

      1. If he had written 2+2=5, we would have seen what he intended as well.

        But obvious intentions, whether in the realms of mathematics or humor, doesn’t make the failure any less a failure.

  4. The Fear and Loathing quote is applicable:

    “Finish the f***ing story, man. What happened? What about the glands!?”

  5. This same thing happens to me all the time. It’s weird how close my life is to your cartoons. It’s as though you’re writing about me!

  6. Hmm, am I the only person who realizes that short-chain (volatile) fatty acids are not converted into triglycerides? As mild anti-inflammatory signaling molecules, I don’t think Billy is well served by them even if he takes a knife to the gut. Adrenaline is his best friend right now…

  7. “Way down inside the large intestine,
    Far, far away,
    There’s where the ice cream cones are restin’,
    There’s where the eclairs stay.”
    —attributed to Mark Twain
