Day By Day


  • Swansonic

    Awww, shoot! They are sooo cute!

  • Big Jim

    Absolutely effing creative GENIUS…

  • JTC

    A 9? Nah, that kid’s a 10!

  • What Skye could have been like had she been compatible with Sam. The two together as grownups will be fantastic.

    • GruntGI

      Now that is an interesting thought….what would Sam and Skye wear as big girl Halloween costumes?

  • David A Esch

    That’s awesome!

    • JackDeth 72

      More awesome if Mari were a Hollow Point.

      • MasterDiver

        No, she has way too much sense in her head to be a “hollow” point.

        Zar Belk!

          “Master Diver’s here all week, folks…..

          Try the veal. Don’t forget to tip your Wait Staff!”

          Nice one, too.

          • Wandering Neurons

            And not a Dum-Dum round either!

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Awesome. Some child shows up at my house in that costume, they get ALL the candy!

  • Those were brilliant ideas. Those things closest to a child’s heart.

  • WayneM

    Best kids costumes ever!!

  • Ryk E Lee

    It would all of 2 hours for Mari to be expelled in a Public School, sad state of affairs, indeed.

    • Too Tall


      Two hours?

      The most incompetent bureaucrats on earth aren’t that slow.

      Five minutes max. Heck, they would probably arrest and charge Mari and Sam with felonies before they got out of the car in the school parking lot.

      Reminds me of my then 16 year old son crossing the parking lot with a potato gun across his shoulders (extra credit project for physics that looked like a large white bazooka) and a half-gallon of Everclear. Thankfully it was pre 9-11.

      • eon

        She could always tell them she was Elmer Fudd in “What’s Opera, Doc?”;

        Not that that would make them any happier.

        • The 300

          Beat me to it.

      • JackDeth 72

        Sounds like a more highly refined and bigger budgeted “Polish Cannon”. Usually made old school tin beer cans duct taped end to end to fire a tennis ball.

        • Larry

          We upped the ante on ours in college and used #5 Hi-C fruit juice cans, the big ones. You could see the shock/sound wave as it moved down the hallway in the dorm.

      • Old Codger

        My thoughts exactly, TT.

    • MasterDiver

      J can see the snowflakes running into the night screaming “No, no, No, NO, NOOOOO!!!

      Zar Belk!

    • Roland Deschain

      Unfortunately, that was my first thought, also! Sad, indeed!

  • jdow

    9mm round? THAT costume in California could probably get the wearer and her mother some time in prison.

    (Mumble mumble – I wonder if I could go as a 12 inch projectile. Daddy could be the battleship. And…..)

    • MasterDiver

      Go Full Bore: 18-inch! (IJN Yamato)

      Zar Belk!

      • John D. Egbert

        Also IJN Mushashi. Both squandered to no avail.

        • Interventor


  • JackDeth 72

    And Mari can probably tell you the drop ratio of a 9mm round at 50 yards.

    Not certain if that’s cool or scary.

    • Pamela

      That is scary cool. Like nitrous in a car.

  • Browncoat

    But I thought she found 9mm “boring”? At least reloading them…

  • derfel cadarn

    I’m more of a 357 guy, but this is great !

    • JackDeth 72

      .45 ACP Colt Commander…. Though, I do like my vintage WWII German 9mm Walther P-38. Its heavy slide eats up a lot of recoil.

  • Johnny Z

    Makes me wish my daughter was 9 years old again so I could dress her up politically incorrect… Maybe some day I’ll have grand kids to dress up…

  • Pamela

    The girls costumes remind me of the year my daughter went as Strawberry Shortcake and my son went as an Army Chaplain carrying an American flag, a bible with his .45 on his hip. People asked why. He said it was D-Day, and he was at Omaha beach.

    • JackDeth 72

      You raised your son right, Pamela.

      No rule against Chaplains, Medics, or Corpsman being armed in a Combat Zone. Air Force Para Rescue Men (P.J.) are some of the most highly trained and armed in the business.

      • gruundehn

        All medics, under the Geneva Conventions, must be unarmed at all times to qualify as medics and get the protections therein. Pararescue Jumpers do not qualify under the Geneva Conventions’ rules and they are proud of that.

      • Interventor

        Noncombatantants aren’t supposed to carry offensive weapons. Pistols are defined as defensive weapons.

        • gruundehn

          Pararescue Jumpers carry M-16’s.

  • Gee Miller

    I love so many of the DBD strips, but this is my all-time favorite.

  • cfm56dash7

    Para bellum.

  • 'TreHammer

    I can’t wait for the future happenings when those two start dating.

    • Pamela

      That shall be interesting especially after Auntie Naomi teaches them some interesting stuff. Oh, and the proper use and cleaning of knives.

    • Merle

      OOHHH !!!!

    • Pamela

      What happened to the candy….

  • Lyle

    Projectiles don’t have “drop ratios”. Just “drop”. At fifty yards you typically don’t have enough drop to make a difference. Depending on the pistol, even at 100 yards you may not have to change the sight picture by much, on a reasonably sized target.
