Labor of love

So last night, my sister/ex-boss Ruth went on a date. 'So what?' you say. She's a person, she's allowed to cast aside the shackles of bachelorettism and paint the town red. It's all true. BUT... not if that date happens to be the nephew of beloved prime minister John Howard. That's like Al Gore's daughter (a writer for futurama) dating Bob Dole. A match made in some sort of horrible poison match factory. Luckily it apparently didn't go to well.

Which is good, because Ruth's son's name is Howard. Howard Howard? Ack!

Questionable Content is a webcomic of goodness, featuring, amongst others, a character called Pintsize. Here is an image of said size from the world's best ever strip of QC™:

Apparently Pat got taped to the wall once, but he didn't stick around long enough for me to see it.

Anyway, the point of all this is that yesterday I was at an Aboriginal art opening to scope out some works for my uni assignment. It was all pretty generic until I happened upon this one work that beared an uncanny (like Paul Jennings) resemblance to Pintsize:

Since a lot of Aboriginal art is interpreted from spiritual ceremonies, I wonder if this means that somewhere there is a religious following of Questionable Content... oh wait.

Muffin Nemesis

I have a lot of nemeses, but none have shaken the core of my being as much as Muffin Nemesis! The story goes like this: at college breakfast in 2003, I was craving some english muffins (see picture below). However, the toaster was full of other people's baked goods, so there would be a long wait before I could delve into their tasty buttery goodness. Then I realised there was nobody else around. What if I.... do I dare? I dared! I stole someone's muffins right out of the toaster and claimed them as my own!

Exhibit A: Muffins.

A victimless crime? NO! As I was eating my 'hot' stolen muffins, I saw somebody looking around the toaster for his missing foods. Then he looked at me. He knew! He was, from that day on, my MUFFIN NEMESIS!

From that day on, every morning I ate in terror, fearing that Muffin Nemesis would strike revenge upon me! Soon, the fear spread to my everyday goings-on. If I saw Muffin Nemesis, I would hide behind a tree or other non-muffin shaped object. Fear eats the soul that eats the muffin! Truly, the muffin nemesis had lost the battle (for food), but won the war (of sanity):

What's that? Your cries of pain are muffled!?

As time went on, I tried to overcome my fear. After months of hiding, enough was enough! Though I'm not the most sangfroid of individuals, I decided to approach him and beg for mercy:

Well, you'd look like that too if Muffin Nemesis had just ripped off your arm in anger.

It was a long, hard road to reconciliation. Eventually, relations were stable enough between us for me to invite him to my birthday party. After that, he left for China, presumably on some sort of muffin quest. Though he may be far away, his words of warning shall forever temper my toasting-related actions:

Heed his words, or you yourself may experience the wrath of a Muffin Nemesis!

I am Killbot Joe

Well, protractorbeam has gone and my blog is back. Sounds like good news? Not entirely. Unfortunatley Set Square and the whole gang have moved to here, just so, you know, you can keep up with the compelling story.

When I moved the comics, I deleted the comments. So here they are, just so you can relive the glory days:

Will D:
Am I the only one revelling in the delightful adventures of these three?
Rock on.
See you soon!

the triangle has 180 degrees not, as the author would have you believe, 45 degrees.
you're all wankers

Will D:
Wow. I guess someone else *is* revelling.

No, that was garth. He's one of them 'haterz'.

Will D:
Sad to hear. Should be more people named Garth deservin' of the title.
Peace out.

I'm not one of the 'haterz' - rather a conscientious objector.

OOOOh I like it -- the are weird ...
......................and I found the crazens
