Day By Day


  • Oh dear, and away we go!

  • John M.

    It’s just one darn thing after another at the Double-D, isn’t it!

  • kadaka

    Skye slips and falls. “Ow, what is… Wait, I know this. Sam!”

  • WayneM

    Drive carefully!

  • kadaka

    Real Life Real Logic: At supermarket, woman grabs a head a lettuce, $1.69. I tell her there’s a sale, only 99ยข/head for 2 or more (small shelf tag). She explains “well we don’t eat that much lettuce” and walks off.

    • TomZ

      If by the time they would have finished the first head the second was slimy and needed to be thrown out, the one that was actually used would have been $1.98 instead of $1.69.

      • kadaka

        Exactly. As an adaptable omnivore I alter my menu for minimal (financial) resource expenditure. BLTs, soft tortilla wraps, I can easily use up “excess” lettuce. People get entranced by the “logic of logic”. Use only half of the second head and it was worth it.

  • Too Tall

    If Sam and Zed are 40 miles from the nearest public road, and Kimiko tells Don Portago to fire up their private jet, who gets to the hospital first?

    • kadaka

      Does the ranch helicopter fly at night?

  • John T. Block

    Wonder if Zed is gonna get a son, after two girls?

    • GWB

      Twins, again – this time boys!
      Fasten your seatbelt, it’s gonna get bumpy!

  • Too Tall

    If Jan and Naomi visit Sam and her baby in the hospital, isnโ€™t it about time for them to pack a bag and fill out their own admissions paperwork?

    • kadaka

      Seems Jan already had baby Kavanaugh, spotted Oct 11.

  • Pamela

    Hmm. A boy, weighing in at 10 pounds, 24 inches long

    • kadaka

      And what’s the other one? She’s had twins before.

      • Punta Gorda

        “Smith” and “Wesson” That would be a fun set of brothers to deal with.

        • kadaka

          Harrington and Richardson, aka Harry and Ricky.

          • Wood

            We thought about naming our son Harrison Richard, Harrison cause we like it and Richard after my dad. That would have tormented the poor boy forever: Harry Dick!

      • Pamela

        True. My Grandmother had two sets of twin boys. The first at 46 and the last at 48. 16 children in total and 15 lived to adulthood.

    • Chris Muir

      Actually, a girl! They were joking around that day.

  • Doc Savage

    Jumper in the door!

  • kadaka

    Green Logic:

    To preserve human civilization as we know it, top UN scientists say we need to transform our economy and society in the next 12 years

    It’s become necessary to destroy the civilization to save it?

    • Deplorable B Woodman

      “We have our best men on it. Top…..Men…..”

    • JTC

      That does tie in nicely with the mining discussion from yesterday. The money quote, as it were…

      “we need to transform our economy and society in the next 12 years,โ€

      Yes, they are concerned with future generations like our new baby(s?) there at the ranch. Their eden depends on a nice crop of eloi to sustain them.

      The Chinese are certainly evil but very perceptive, even having coined a term for Ocasio and her ilk:

      Follow the money/power. Always follow the money/power.

    • PaulS

      UNTopia! Wonderful. ๐Ÿ™

      UN- Prefix that alters meaning 180 degrees. i.e. Successful vs UNsuccessful
      Intelligent vs UNintelligent
      Need I go on?

      Unfortunately it doesnโ€™t seem to work in the โ€œUN Idiots!โ€ example. They canโ€™t even get that right.

    • Chris Muir

      eon-too long, dude.

  • Punta Gorda

    Ahh.. to have a 426 and a competent driver… get you there pronto.

    • JTC

      Love me some vintage rods but that Escalade out front will get them there faster, safer, and with an emergency birthing bed in back if needed.

    • OHBridgeGuy

      I think the (more) competent driver will be too distracted by her birthing pains…

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Wasn’t Naomi also pregnant?

    • Chris Muir


  • CaptDMO

    “Get the car”?
    I’m so old, I remember (not really)….
    Women would rather bear their children in the street than go to the “maternity hospital” in Vienna.
    Because,….you know….science.
    Get the car? how about
    Hunker down, shelter in place, and task the panicky folk with watching large pots of water boil.

  • Delilah T

    How come nobody there ( including JO) is a midwife????

    • JSStryker

      Jo could probably become a midwife with 30 seconds of internet access.

      • Chris Muir

        Do NOT read my mind.

        • Jo, and some insulated gloves?

        • JSStryker

          Slides Chris’ script into a desk drawer… ๐Ÿ˜€

    • JSStryker

      But then would you want Jo’s -5 degree hands touching you there? ๐Ÿ˜€

      • PaulS

        Ooooo…. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Insulation for the hands.

        BBQ mitts?

      • Delilah T

        I”m sure that JO has internal control of surface temperatures.

  • Spin Drift

    Did we have a baby naming contest and I missed it?

    So, I submit:

    for twin boys: Walker and Marshall

    For twin girls:

    Bobby Sue and Mary Jo (it’s Texas you know)


    • Chris Muir

      Wesley Richards? Smith Wesson? heh

      • I like both of those!

      • Delilah T

        If it’s a girl, Boadicea?

        “Bo” for short, then you have Bo and Jo.

        Just an idea.

      • JSStryker

        Dan Wesson Owens or Samuel Colt Owens?

    • kadaka

      Billy Jo and Bobbie Sue

  • Chris Muir

    Eon, condense your previous and repost if u like-it was waaaay too long, sorry.

    • JTC

      Funny, I was about to send eon a suggestion to continue an OT string from yesterday at yesterday’s ‘toon if that is okay CM? Like that comments stay open after the fact for those of us like eon and (ahem) that JTC guy for whom brevity is not a strong suit…unless that still burns up band width for you, being old and ignorant I don’t know how that works…?

      • Chris Muir

        Eon put out a VERY long post, I appreciate it, but it was almost a novella. I like his stuff, but if he could condense a tad, others can get in there and address his points.

        • JTC

          Well hell now I’m curious, is it on today’s topic? Hate for it to go to waste; can he or you copy/paste at yesterday’s? Interesting guy, I and others would likely check it out…maybe comment.

          Wifey says I will argue with a fencepost (apologies to any fenceposts out there), but I prefer to call it offering a contrarian view…like it says on the sidebar at the Old Dead Blog, “ever the contrarian”. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • NotYetInACamp

            Apology accepted. Excepted.

  • James Gemind



    A baby boy for the girls to adore…

    • Pamela

      and to teach him all the fun stuff

  • shooter 2.5

    Julie [Golob] and Jessie [Harrison]. Rob[Latham] and Brian [Enos]. Just wondering.
