    Beautiful Chris, in every way.

    But, I’m fuzzy on the whole “tomorrow” thing.

    No date on this episode but it is Sunday’s ‘toon, so is tomorrow Monday, or as I suspect with the fund drive ending is tomorrow Sunday at noon?

    The answer to that helps me know whether I and a few others need to drop in a few more scrip $ into the pot Sunday or Monday morning? Help!

      Hey Ultra. I think as much as Chris like to hit his mark for the year during this period is is also grateful for donations at any time.

      I don’t think he’s going to send your money back if you’re a day late 😉

      • August 7, 2022 at 1:07 am

        Actually Cliff, The Artiste has made clear many times that there is one and only one fund drive to keep him in ink, beer, and bandwidth for the year.

        And we play around with it every year, right down to the wire, then do what we have to do to get him to the finish line. And we will do that again, whether “today” is “tomorrow” or “tomorrow” is “today”, once we figure out what the meaning of is is…

        Hope things improve for you and all of us, and that all who enjoy and are inspired by the scribbles here will pitch in what they can to help make it happen, and him, and us…keep on keepin’ on.

    • August 7, 2022 at 8:40 am

      Ends at noon tomorrow.

      • August 7, 2022 at 9:55 am

        Yeah that’s what it says up there…the ever-elusive “tomorrow”.

        Willfully cryptic though, and still don’t tell me shit about what it *is*.

        We’ll figger it out. Or not.

        As to the tapping of the ass(es) though, they have to get it up and the knees tucked under to truly “ass-ume” the position for that.

      • August 7, 2022 at 2:36 pm

        JTC; Depends upon what “Is” Is.
        Heh heh.

      • August 7, 2022 at 3:03 pm

        Yep, the point I made at the very top, which was so skillfully and gleefully ignored by the host, so I reiterated; “is” today tomorrow, or “is” tomorrow today? Always seems to be a day away…

      • August 7, 2022 at 7:36 pm

        Free beer tomorrow!

      Wow. I completely missed that. Noon Monday!

      • August 7, 2022 at 5:18 pm

        Got it. And I figgered that. Just having some fun with it… 🙂

    Hey Chris! Good news on making your mark this year.

    Sorry I couldn’t add to the pile but it’s been a tough year for me and I haven’t been able to work since December. Keeping the monthly donation going for as long as I can though.

    Looking forward to another year of DBD.

    “If our cause be just…” No matter what else, enraging puritanical, fascistic, easily offended, word redefining narcicists is ALWAYS a good cause.

    Keep up the good work, Chris. I’ll try to get into a financial position to contribute next year.

    Lovely rendition of the girls.

    As long as you continue to annoy and offend the perpetually miserable denizens of this land; I will be glad to partake of this annual fun time.

    Does mari?/kiko? Down on bottom have a finger on the pulse of things? Or is she pressing the happy panic button ? It is a time of emergency according to the power grabbers going through the depth of health.

    “Tanned, rested, and ready…”

    I dunno.
    Comparing Sam to the younguns, I sense a tanning competition in the offing.

    • August 7, 2022 at 3:04 pm

      Redheads do *not* get into tanning competitions.

      • August 7, 2022 at 4:01 pm

        Not if they want to avoid intense pain.

      • August 7, 2022 at 10:38 pm

        Looking like a boiled lobster isn’t a good thing, for a red head. However, my mom, a red head could tan (light).

      Meant to add to my comment above (I pushed the button too quickly — premature attach-elation perhaps) that today is my (late) wife’s birthday. I’m pretty darn (read: absolutely) certain that THIS image in particular would have been her all-time favorite of the LITB (Ladies in the buff) panels of DBD.

      She certainly recognized, and played along happily, with the Igor-Bivor show-it-all, git’em-out-there nature of the male drive. But typical female, she always far-preferred and appreciated a more subtle approach. So I’m also pretty darn sure she would have fondly imagined being a fourth level box behind Sam there on the human hopscotch sidewalk pictured in today’s strip.

      I may have to print this one out and keep it handy nearby for my own imaginings from time to time…

    Face down, ass up…how I retrieve my crab traps. A movement afoot? We can only work to that end.

  • August 7, 2022 at 7:53 am

    Be-Ee-Uti-Full! 🙂

  • August 7, 2022 at 8:10 am

    Being able to see your creativity and analysis of the American power struggle is well worth my modest donation, thank you and keep up the fight!

  • August 7, 2022 at 8:27 am

    Around the final turn…

    They’re on the back stretch!

    It’s a three way race as they head for the line…..

    And it’s DBD’rs by a nose! No, a tail! After coming on strong from behind! TOO CLOSE TO CALL?!?!

    Judges are calling for a photo review……

  • August 7, 2022 at 8:55 am

    I really wanted to title this one ‘Tap That Ass’, but manners prevailed. Or,not.

  • August 7, 2022 at 11:21 am

    Chris, you are almost always spot on and you should take pride in it. I don’t understand why FaceAche wont let me post your toons on occasion…

    • August 7, 2022 at 11:32 am

      Banned years ago.

    Li’l Blue Eyes front and center…her she belongs. Nice work Chris. You should have gotten my meager contrib Friday. Hope it helped….

    I hope you are right, Chris, but let us not become blinded by our associations. You, I, and your readers undoubtedly self segregate into like-minded circles. The same habit blinds many of the upper-east side Leftists; “everyone I know thinks…”
    Also, never forget there are moles among us; agent provocateurs from 3-letter agencies hoping to make their names by kicking over a nest of true Americans.
    For now there are hopeful signs. We may indeed win the coming elections by greater-than-midnight-biden numbers, but don’t count on it.

      If there’s any one (or two….) of your “friends” that advocate violence, with access to the tools of same, THOSE are the “agents provocateur”. Shun them. Block them on social media. Publicly and loudly renounce them. Call them out as the three-letter-agents that they are. Sunshine is the best disinfectant. Expose the bottom of the rock, and watch the creepy-crawlies scatter.

        Violence not required.

        Like a black hole, the entire Progtard one world government movement is about to crushed under the staggering amounts of debts they have run up.

        Let them continue to believe in their fantasies of Modern Monetary Theory that they can continue to create, spend, and steal unlimited amounts of fiat currency. That will only hasten and deepen their collapse.

        Just be sure to remain outside the Event Horizon which in the modern political world translates as the “City Limits” signs of any democrat run municipality.

        I submit the ever present ray Epps at so many places as appearing to be such. He told all who would listen and sent texts and such to organizers that people must enter the Capitol building, for whatever reasons.
        The real reason is that the people standing outside peacefully was the greatest force and pressure on the Congress to act as the people wanted, which was to ensure and accurate actual constitutional vote count.
        The one thing that would ensure the seeming completion of the 2020 Democrat Coup was to have people enter the Congress Halls and especially if some violence occurred.
        There were enough agent provocateurs to get the ball rolling. And after the breach there were enough colluding by orders police to keep it rolling. After the Epps directed breach, and the police resistance at certain points the people had enough rage built up in them that the desecration of the voting process led them to carry further than legitimate supporters of the Republic desired. A mob is easy to enrage after a group has turned into a mob. People that would not have violated any laws then often violate them, as the always sociopath Democrats knew. The Democrats had been aiding riots for the prior two years at a minimum concerning these matters.
        Trump. I fault him on having supported a crowd to assemble, and then not doing what the Democrats accused him of. he did not control it or the groups that gathered in DC.
        The groups should have received written instructions to protect the Capitol buildings that should have been distributed far and wide. It should have been the movie V where the people did not attack the police as the waited at first. Not Ross Perot hiring provocateurs to goad the mob to take over the Tehran jail and his ex military people invade behind them and free his jailed employees.
        An explanation that VP Pence was expected to Constitutionally return some electors ballots to the State Legislatures whose powers had been violated should have been spread far and wide.
        VP Pence said that he was a clerk counting. )That brings up other issues. VP Pence had the Constitutional power to question what was presented to him.
        In the concept of lesser judges, Pence had the power to judge the situation and pass the ultimate decisions to the ultimate judges empowered by the US Constitution, who are the State Legislatures involved. The State Legislatures are the closest to the people who they had empowered to vote. If there was a seeming problem, the State Legislatures are those empowered constitutionally to make any decisions concerning what should occur. The State Legislatures are elected by the people and are the people’s representatives. no election official or other government functionary is empowered to make election and election law decisions where the election of a President of the United States of America is concerned.
        Will it happen again?

    Good God Magnum! If I could draw like that I would never have to leave the house!
