I used to live in fear of squirrels gaining the ability to make sloppy joes. I feel much better now.
Squirrels make GREAT sloppy joes. Try it the next time you find some roadkill in the street – you won’t be disappointed! :D
If Percival Dunwoody and Tim Tripp ever collide in the streams of space-time, I expect much jocularity and hi-jinks!
I saw “Tim Tripp, Time Traveller” in the headline and immediately thought, “Does he meet Percival Dunwoody?”
Later, of course, we will find out that Tim Tripp becomes Percival Dunwoody after accidently interfering with his own ancestral timeline. And vice-versa.

When I read the 60′s style advertisement on the right side, I imagined presenting this to someone actually in the 1960′s. He would understand the basic concept of the fart jokes, but still be highly irritated by most of the words. Why start a word with a hash? What’s got the side of a spider’s web to do with this? Why is a pirate’s fart supposed to bedifferent?
They didn’t have Tweeter back then, they wouldn’t know what the fuck a hashtag is.
What’d they call it?
They call it a “number sign”.
Number sign. What’d they call an “at sign”?
At sign is an at sign, but to them it meant “at the rate of”.
At the rate of! Ahhaha, what do they call a Whopper?
I dunno, I didn’t go into a Burger King.
It seems obvious to my past self that it is a phone number. Calling it now to see if there is a fart recording.
Ever since I read Making History by Stephen Fry, in which scientists prevent the birth of Hitler but it results in someone even worse, I’ve found it annoying when people suggest that the best use for time travel would be to kill Hitler.
Well, it must then cease.
I think the better idea is to send a cute Jewish girl back to when he was a teen and totally seduce and marry him.
It would help if she totally gushes about his paintings.
And doesn’t mention the whole ‘one big ball’ thing.
AFAIK he was born with two, and as any Brit can tell you, the other is kept in the Albert Hall.
Angry Middle-Aged Man in Panel 1 of “Superhero Fantasies” looks a lot like Mitt Romney. Interesting…
Me, I wonder what AMAM’s problem is. Mahogany is water-proof. That’s why it’s used for boat decks.
The water ring on my mother’s mahogany sideboard disagrees with you.
The ring’s not in the mahogany; it’s in the varnish.
“Concept of a Fart” might be the best thing Mr. The Dancing Bug has ever done, and that’s saying something (as opposed to “saying nothing” in which case this entire area would be left blank.)
When do Percival Dunwoody and Tim Tripp find out about the Concept of a Fart?
I’ve always wondered if the word “kerchief” was an onomatopoeia. I’ve tried, whenever the irresistible urge to sneeze comes to me, to expel “KERCHIEF!” instead of “AACHOO!” Usually, it ends in failure.

Here's a great, simple DIY project from A Beautiful Mess for using glued-on tapestry fabric to create a kind of floral saddle-shoe effect.
It's tempting—oh so tempting—to lead off a review of Samsung's Galaxy Note by mocking its enormous size. So I shall.
The Note is big enough to give me a sense of empathy for our toddler when she picks up our phones.
AdaFruit has released a set of plans for building your own Internet of Things Printer. It's a weekend project that ends up with a homebrew analog of BERG's Little Printer.
