Can You Dig It?

I battled a serious case of writer’s block today. I had roughed out 4 or 5 comic ideas but none of them ever gelled. Josh suggested I do a fart joke and be done with it. I didn’t want to cop out quite that hard, but as a tribute to my day of desperation and to his flatulent suggestion, I threw one in the first panel.

I’d like to think Isaac Hayes was floating around in some sort of Soulicious Chocolate Funk Heaven, the kind of place where Bootsy Collins, not St. Peter, would greet you at the pearly entrance to the Eternal Life Funkdubious Mothership Spacegasm. Alas, Mr. Hayes was a Sci-Lon. You’d think he could have warded of the brainwashing powers of the “Church of Scientolgy” with his Sex-Machine powers or his ability to “not cop out when there’s danger all about.” (I know the song isn’t about HIM but… isn’t it, though?)

At least Sci-Lon’s believe in a type of reincarnation (it litterally involves a trip to Venus to have your soul refitted with a new “meat-body”). He could already be back. If you see a 2 day old baby with a deep, soulful voice, a willingness to risk his neck for his brother man and just a little more facial hair that you would expect from an infant, that’s probably him.

Ya’ damn right.

  1. Are you so jaded that the dick-joke wasn't an option in the gay male reference to shaft? The three of you parachuting off the tip of the Washington Monument in a foam of egg-whites and baking-soda?

  3. I'm breathing what can only be described as "crunchy air" and our canary died 20 minutes ago.

    That cracked me up to no end. Thanks. :)

  4. I like to think that Hayes was a secret agent, and is kicking Xenu's ass in Scientology heaven.

    Also, this comic made me laugh at a fart joke for the first time in a long time. Thank you.

  5. The crunchy air is awesome, but I think what is even more awesome is that all this talk of SciLons just won you a side banner ad from the CoS. "Get The Facts", the caption reads. Okay! http://xenu.net/

  7. Um, I would totally go that far to make a "Shaft" joke…if it weren't for my crippling claustrophobia. Also, "Crunchy air" FTW!

  13. Issac Hayes isn't dead! Don't know know Scientologists can't die? I think they can also shoot fireballs out their asses too…

  17. Well, they do sign billion year contracts so I guess they have ways around mortality.

  18. Richard Roundtree (Shaft) is alive and well as far as I know. Issac Hayes, Shaft Theme composer, is dead.

  20. You get a win for the phrase "meatbody".

  22. When you cant laugh at fart jokes, its time to reevaluate your life.

    Reply
  23. in a "OH GOD OH GOD GET THAT SHIT OFF MY SITE@!!!!" kind of way.

  24. As others have pointed out, you can still do a "shaft" joke if you lean away from mines and towards penises.

  25. It will be shortly. Still need to do tallies.

  26. You're obviously a complicated man. Im sure no one understands you but your woman.

  27. THEY SAY THAT! I wish I could take credit for it. Thats a Scientology term.

  28. Yeah, it was unfortunate that he succumbed to the dark side, but like South Park said, "We shouldn't be mad at Chef for leaving us, we should be mad at that fruity little club for scrambling his brains."

    Reply
  29. Also, what about Bernie Mac? He not good enough to be mocked on the interwebs?

    Reply
  30. What if a Scientologist is vegetarian? Do they come back as a meat-flavored tofu-substitute body?

    Reply
  31. That Josh is one bad mother–

    Reply
  32. Um…So you're telling me to lean towards penises? You're kidding right? Did my husband put you up to this?!

    Reply
  33. Aww, can I at least pretend to myself that the inspiration came from my post a few comics ago?

    Reply
  34. "In Soviet Russia, penises lean towards you!"

  40. I just keep thinking of the South Park when they killed off Chef.

    Reply
  41. I didn't even realize that was a fart joke. I just thought Eli ate the canary…cause you know, Mexicans do that sort of thing.

  45. Ironically, I don't think you could describe Crunchy Airs as "light and airy", as I've heard other cereals described.
