    Based on this, I think we might ought to remove the “almost” from “almost full Biden”.

  • ses1066

    Could it be that Skye is making a transition? Has she been to Damascus?

    • Fox2!

      Seems like she might be on the road.

    • noncom

      Unfortunately, she looks better in black,,,,JMMHO….

    Now there’s that whore whisperer I spoke of…

      Shit, just noticed the black horns on the dark-winged one. (Shivver)

  • JohninMd.(Help!?!!)

    The Road is long, and full of obstacles…. Learning new ways, when 180° opposite of the past, WILL be difficult…. She’s from good stock, she can succeed if she wants to.

  • JTC

    An important aside before this day is done…

    In the prior ‘toon Grunt GI brought some reality and gravity to the discussion with a call to remember. Very good.

    Then, in succession ‘Nam vets added their agreeance…Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines…past members of all the branches stepping up to represent.

    I know it wasn’t choreographed, but it’s as if it was, and it’s a beautiful thing.

    And from me (of age right at the end; didn’t go but friends did), thank you again to all of those guys who spoke up for their brothers who couldn’t, and my undying gratitude and sincerest apologies that you all did not get the thanks and gratitude that was due you at the time you earned it.

    As we debate couples therapy, crazy relatives, and life in general, we should remember those who gave us the right to do so and enjoy awesome DBD artwork.
    “But in a larger sense, we can not dedicate we can not consecrate we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but can never forget what they did here.
    It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they have, thus far, so nobly carried on. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
    I’m going to tilt a glass and say a prayer for fallen shipmates and classmates today.
    Y’all have a safe and blessed Memorial Day.

    Retired Army Viet Nam veteran — Raising a glass in agreement

    How completely cool and throat-lump inducing is that? Sorry so long Chris, I thought it would be space well used, unlike some of my other wordy drivel that I can indulge in because of men like those represented here.

      My thanks to each of you for your service.

    • Grunt GI

      Thanks very much. I know there’s a lot of grunts and salty old dogs who enjoy this cartoon. Thought some perspective was important.

      After all many good men and women have given us the freedom to enjoy the fine snark, commentary, and most of all really, really fine artwork on this little ol’ bastion of free speech and boobehs.

      Thanks to Chris for providing us this forum to speak our minds, or in my case, try to not need a cranial rectal extraction as I attempt to keep up. I personally appreciate all the interesting comments here, even if I don’t understand or agree with them.

      Now, let’s begin the countdown to the Next Big Thang. T-7 days and counting.

    Thou shall not COVET…

  • Maybe he plans to make a biblical reference to Jacob, Leah, and Rachel though it was proper then and both women were good. That would not fit with the way things are going in this story arc.

    • Grunt GI

      You know, I just re-read Genesis during Lent, and I have to say, Jacob was da man. How he had time to take care of anything else is amazing…Leah, Rachel, and their two servant girls! Now I understand where he got 12+ sons. Impressive stallion, that patriarch.

        Freaks me out when Wifey rearranges the living room. Change is hard.

        Hold me.

      About the new format, comic doesn’t show on mobile. Blackberry Priv, boat browser if it matters.

    • JTC

      Beautiful. Skye has many miles to go before that sentiment can be about her.

      An odd little secret about me is that I love NPR. Notwithstanding the stomach-turning libturd twists and turns, the presentation and backstory of much of what they do is mesmerizing, and often their play-out music snips are fresh, different, and excellent, sometimes even the hip-hop.

      PHC even more so; I was not a fan of Keillor, but some of the musical acts, esp. the bluegrass, was so cool I would forward them to my daughter. She’s a teacher but a musician and music lover at heart as is her hubbyand her best friend. She loves much of it enough to share and download what I send plus other work from the artist.

      Often there’s good among the bad. Finding it is hard but worth it. Good thing for Skye.

    Lt. Commander John C. Waldron, An example to remember today. We might not remember him, but we remember his type. My uncle did not bring home any awards from WW2, but I remember him today. My dad brought home a bunch but he survived so Veterans day is really his day to me.

    • Tom White

      I have studied Midway much of my life. The sacrifices made by the torpedo squadrons were instrumental in allowing the Enterprise and Yorktown dive bombers the chance to strike Akagi, Kaga, and Soryu unmolested.

      I also raise a glass to LCDR Lance “Lem” Massey (CO, VT-3) and LCDR Eugene Lindsey (CO, VT-6). As well as all others who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

    • Grunt GI

      That’s right, my good man. The 75th Anniversary of Midway is right around the corner. Can’t wait to see what new history is written. Walter Lord, Gordon Prange, and my old professor Craig Symonds have all written excellent volumes.

    To friends, comrades, brothers-in-arms; present and missing; past, present, future. A toast.

    Gawd! For all its aggravations, how I sometimes miss “the life”.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    At least Skye is still having a dialogue. She’s trying. Pray she continues to be successful.

    • WayneM

      Not only is Skye trying, she’s reaching out to Sam for guidance. That could be a remarkable step.

    Today is the day when we remember our brothers and sisters that have given their all in the defense of our way of life and our country. Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen and Coast Guardsmen have given their lives in peace and in war, by accident and by enemy action, on our homeland and on foreign soil. From the first Continental Soldier to the last Serviceman in our final war; from those brought home by six of their comrades, to those resting in American soil in foreign lands, to those lost to us forever but remembered by their friends, family and GOD. It is to them that we take time for daily life today to remember and profoundly thank for their sacrifices.
    In my cupboard is a bottle of Chivas Royal Salute used only for certain days. Today I raised a glass in honor of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our great country. To my brothers and sisters in arms that gave their all: my family and I salute you. To my uncle; Seaman Robert S. Cooper Jr, US Navy Reserve; killed in action, November 8, 1942, Operation Torch: we salute you.
    To those who served and made it home, our day comes November 11th at 11:00am. On that day I will raise a glass to all of those who proudly wear the title of Veteran.

    • Merle

      Don’t forget the Merchant Marine – a LOT of them died during WW2 convoys. The other ships were forbidden to stop for survivors – a stopped ship was an easy target.

      Imagine what that knowledge did to your head.

  • I think the devil on ske’s shoulder just needs to get laid. likely the last time someone touched her (before zed) was when she was hanging out with antifa.

    she grew all that hair back and had all of her tattoos removed. that’s a long time for her.

    • dammit..that’ll teach me not to proofread

      ske’s = skye’s

  • AlphaMike

    Take the thick crust and stab it through her thick skull, Sam. All the way to her demented and useless brainstem. The only good libtard bitch is a dead one, family or not.

    Written during WW I for the Brits. Still holds true.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them.

    They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
    They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
    They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
    They sleep beyond England’s foam.

    All I know is Skye is going to look real good in a DDQ bar waitress uniform. This is going to be a long struggle between Zed & Skye.

    • GWB

      Just so long as the black-winged vixen doesn’t win out.

    • JTC

      JZ, she’s had the look part down forever; couldn’t take my eyes off of her as I sat there at the bar:

      http://www.daybydaycartoon.com/comic/believe/

      Of course that’s as close as I wanted to get, because y’know, skank.

      • Pamela

        JT~

        Darlin’, You keep staring like that at her, your eyes are going to become fixed points in time and space.

        • JTC

          Yikes, better avert…there’s lots more to look at around here:

          Sam, Jan, Jewess Commando, Pamatar… 😉

      • Grunt GI

        JTC, how does that country song go, “Boys, you can look, but you can’t touch.”

        And yes, both Sam and Skye have some awesome badonkadonk

    • JIMV

      “All I know is Skye is going to look real good in a DDQ bar waitress uniform”

      She’d look a lot better out of that uniform…

      • JTC

        Redundant, if you saw the “uniform” I linked up there.

      • Pamela

        Be very careful in your exploration of Skye out of uniform.
        *hands JIMV a 12 pack*

    • John

      Zed will have none of it. He has his woman.
      Skye will have to walk this line alone, or at least until she can find her own Man.

  • ExNuke

    If she survives the conversion she might get another chance with the Sheriff.

    • Unca Walt

      That, IMO, would be kewl; he would be a good influence on her… and he has the right outlook on life. I’m just a softie.

  • Ol' Tanker

    I noticed the evil angel of Skye shares the same mole/ beauty spot that Sam has on her cheek. As I look back on past episodes I see the spot changes cheeks on Sam and sometimes appears on Skye.

  • Knocky

    way too much good stuff going on in the world to be stuck in Zed’s bedroom. A broader view of things might be in order.

  • Grunt GI

    So, based on this awesome toon, here’s another inspired fund raiser idea:

    Lovely nude of Sam (angel) and Skye (vixen) side by side.
    With the required halo, horns and wings.

    Thoughts?

    Yea I have interesting thoughts on my long commute. Wish I was this creative all the time. 🙂

    • JTC

      No doubt with Chris’ touch that would be awesome.

      But as to Skye, soon to be obsolete (I hope). 😉

    To those who have acquaintances who don’t get yesterday, have them read General Kelly’s speech “Six Seconds” and if that doesn’t sink in recite to them Lincoln’s words to soldiers mother.

    Dear Madam,–

    I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle.

    I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.

    I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

    Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

    A. Lincoln

    • JTC

      RINO One had his moments with words. Of course so did WJC and BHO.

      Would that any of them were heartfelt, and I’m glad he didn’t say what he really did and meant.

  • Ol' Tanker

    ( Opens DBD door, looks around) Say, I like what you did to the old place. Has that new toon smell. Very classy.

  • JTC

    And this is why I don’t like change.

    Sorry bro, I figure you want the truth. I hate it. Bad.

    But I’ll deal with it, ’cause I like DBD and you. Good.

    • Grunt GI

      Well, I actually like it…kinda. So, Chris, not that you need feedback from the peanut gallery, but, since I kinda do this for a living, here’s my $.02. Feel free to let me know to STHU and just enjoy the awesome artwork. 🙂

      * The random button (one of my favorite) only takes you to one cartoon, then it goes away. The next and last buttons seem a bit wonky too. These buttons worked way better on the old site. Not sure why that functionality didn’t transfer.

      *The calendar is VERY much nicer and I love the fact that you can still get a month’s worth of toons at a time. Very good to catch up on what you missed.

      * The tags are also much easier…I hated the rolling cloud thing…made it hard on the iPad to select the tag I wanted (mostly the sex one) 🙂

      Overall, cleaner, lighter and better laid out. Will be interesting to see how you add the fundraiser and any other new (hint, hint) content to the site.

    • Plasticman

      Agreed. Font is too light in color to be clear to my aging eyes. Don’t know how many comments there are when comments are loaded. (Weird personal preference. Has to do with how I consume the page.) But I ain’t going nowhere. I’ll live with the changes if they make Chris happy.

  • Merle

    Not specific to today’s post, but when you pick “random” the ‘toon you get only offers next or previous – you no longer have the option of hitting random again.

  • Kafiroon

    Chris: I rather prefer the off center alignment showing the relationship of the comments.
    My main problem is this seems very pale and harder to read. I kicked the display up to 150%

  • Delilah T.

    What was the reason for changing this, again?

    While larger type is good, the lower contrast makes it harder to read. Can you do something about that, CM?

  • JTC

    Looks like you upped the contrast and added back the reply offset.

    Good for old eyes to see and old brains to follow.

    I like the customer response around this place. 😉

  • Gus Bailey

    Chris; you must be careful with consistency of the various beauty marks / freckles.

  • JTC

    Okay, work in progress…buttons and widgets coming back. Unless I’m too stupid to figure it out (a distinct possibility) archives right now only brings up the current year with no way to jump back; you can get there with the chapter and calendar functions but a yearly back function is needed.
