[Actually published on 04/10/14] Life has been kicking my ass a bit for the last couple of weeks. A week ago my family and I were huddled in a closet during a tornado warning (which touched down EXTREMELY near my house), then a hail storm smashed both of our cars to shit, and now it turns out it also claimed our roof, which needs to be replaced. THEN I drew this comic and my laptop died before I could export the final file. THEN my wife’s hard drive died. Nothing to really freak out over, but it’s been a trying week to say the least, and thus my comic productivity and patience have suffered. I’ll be playing catch up all weekend, and will do my very best to get three new comics up for the week of 4/14/14 and three MORE new comics up for the following week.
Then I’m going to Calgary Expo with Cyanide & Happiness!
OTHER THINGS TO KNOW:
Speaking of Cyanide and Happiness, we have a new short up where I did some writing and play the dentist.
I did a guest comic for my friend Angela, because her husband drove a bicycle down a mountain the wrong way.
I wrote a blog post about how my Patreon is going and when to expect the rewards I’m working on right now.
Ha! I love Josh's expression in the last panel! A "laycation" indeed!
This is basically a true story.
JOOOSH STOP GIVING AWAY OUR SECRETS OK I won't be able to protect you from the Queer Secrets Control Board, they may take away your gay card for this
They'll only put him on probation. I once told straight people how gay sex works, and the QSCB took away my ABBA privileges for a month. The next infraction means my Gay Card will be permanently revoked, and all my Depeche Mode and Tori Amos albums will be put in a woodchipper.
I just assumed this was true for every kind of Convention, it just isnt directly advertised.
Every convention has a fuck suite. EVERY CONVENTION.
And every convention has a sweet fuck.
I once accidentally walked into the fuck suite at bear pride.
I'll bet your clothes also "accidentally" fell off, right? 8^)
because you were supposed to crawl?
Or you can call it a Gaycation! Detox, Willam and Vicky even have a song about it!
PS – "I'm There, I'm A Bear" will be my new motto from now on.
"I'm there, I'm a bear"…………….
Well, Joel made me laugh my ass off right off the bat once again. That's not how multi-panel comics are supposed to work!!!
Thanks! I'm glad it worked.
If Eli was gay, then his motto would most definitely be "I'm here, I'm queer, there's a ton of beer, get used to it."
I kind of like "I'm Here, I'm Beer, Get Used to it." for a motto.
Oooh, that's even better!
“I’m here, I’m queer -is that beer? Bring it near!”
"You know, lately Joel's comics have all be about family and lighthearted comedy and comic conventions.. I think it's time to read Hijinks Ensue with my ki-OH DEAR GOD"
* No actual children were exposed to Hijinks ensue in the making of this comment.
YOU'VE FALLEN INTO MY TRAAAAAP!
Joel's comic used the same tactic as the Waltons and Happy Days. First, you get lulled into a false sense of security with the family moments. Then when you least expect it – WHAM! GAY SEX! (which is not to be confused with "gay sex with WHAM!").
Or George Michael's unauthorized biography, "WHAM!: Gay Sex"
Wow, I hope your next week is MUCH better than this one was.
The comic is fantastic, as usual, but the killer this time is the alt text. 😀
In a closet? Is that something you have to do when there's a tornado? I have no idea to do do in those cases, there's no tornadoes down here.
Indeed. You get in an interior space where there are no windows and you are as close to structural walls as possible. Closets and bathrooms are usually preferable in Texas since we don\’t have basements.
Hope things get better for you. Thankfully that very same tornado missed us by two miles.
I posted a photo from my in-laws rv park where they stay when they come to visit and the tornado was maybe a mile or two from them before it changed directions.
