Day By Day


  • formwiz

    Zed has a great feel for the better things in life.

    • Grunt GI

      This may by my favorite comment today.

      • WayneM

        Yup… No sense even trying to top that one…

  • Bill G

    For Zed, it’s Palm Sunday.
    Evolution in action is for the birds.

  • Spin Drift

    In his image, there is no evolution that even Darwin recanted his own theory.

    Corpus Christi is not just a spring break destination.

  • NotYetInACamp

    I’ll ask the butt man. Do those dem blue birds in panel 5 look like there are butt cheeks (asses) being drawn? I’ll leave it at that. (Ignore Rorschach standing behind the one way mirror)

    • PaulS

      Breasts, no wait… a face staring at me. 😉

    • JTC

      Sorry NYIAC, the Ass Man has no eyes or time for blue bubble butts when there’s a fine red ass right there, no visual/mental gymnastics required, just the instinctive physical reaction God supplied. 😉

  • So is a little lesson in birdism due here? In Argentina the shiny cowbird lays its eggs in the nest of the chalk-browed mockingbird. The mockingbird does not remove the alien eggs, even if its own eggs have been punctured by the cowbird, because the baby bird in the mockingbird’s egg is quite likely to survive.

    Not Darwinian, just pragmatic, because the mockingbird chick is more likely to survive if there are many cowbird eggs, which are just as likely to be punctured by their stupid parents as the mockingbird eggs.

    The analogy in society is that the blue dumbobirds don’t know how to raise their kids to be smart and self-sufficient, so theyd be better off with red smarterbirds as parents.

    That’s your biology lesson for today.

    • Chris Muir

      more like the party itself rather than the middle class.

      • noncom

        I figure between abortion, homosexual marriage, and childless marriages, the dems will self destruct in 50 years…..problem is, will the country survive that long….

    • And what happens when the party can’t support its own weight any more? Will it implode like a black hole? Or will it turn into a white dwarf (pun intended) that spins so fast it sounds like a beacon in space?

      When I’m 100, these illiterates coming out of college will be unable to support themselves, especially when robotics replace them.

      I guess that was the plan all along, wasn’t it? A ‘Brave New World’ full of idiots to sweep floors and take out the trash. I keep thinking that ‘Escape From L.A.’ and ‘Soylent Green’ were not as weird as they seem.

      From ‘Hunger Games’, the territory of Panem? It’s Latin for ‘bread’.

      Curiiouser and curiouser, said Alice.

      • The 300

        You can get a Roomba to sweep the floor now. You don’t even have to wait for Brave New World.

      • Randy

        Escape from New York is a fine start. Let’s hurry up, build the wall and mine the bridges before Chuck Schumer & Bill de Blasio catch on!

        • Doggo

          Didn’t Chris Christie catch hell for closing the bridge?

  • MJ Larkins

    Time to break some eggs…

  • Iconoclast

    I would suggest red RINO-birds would be a more appropriate term ….

  • jackdeth72

    Couldn’t we just repeat history and give those Democrat Blue Birds Smallpox and Typhus infested blankets and be done with it?

    • And that’s a bingo.

  • Pete231

    So round, so firm, so fully packed. Turn the other cheek !

    • Lon Mead

      A Lucky Strike, indeed!

      • John D. Egbert

        L.S.M.F.T. Does it still really mean Loose Straps Mean Flabby Tits?

  • Olddog

    Looks like middle class worms get eaten, no matter which bird survives.

    • tomstockton

      Olddog, you got that right!

    • RooftopVoter

      Depends on how long it takes the Middle Class worms to understand the proper use of the AR15.

      Then no matter, Blue Birds or Red Birds are really no match.

  • Bill

    In real life cowbirds do the same thing to the nests of the golden cheek warbler The solution that the Fish and Wildlife Service use is to kill the cow birds so that the golden cheek warbler can thrive.

    • Well, that does explain why the cowbirds come to my house in the spring to get food. F&W can’t use their nasty guns in my ‘hood.

  • NotYetInACamp

    Screwers and screwees.
    They want to be the screwers.
    Screwers will destroy all ans they never really produce.

    Sometimes parasites can screw the host system for a long time.
    Or, the parasites eventually kill the system they are the parasite in.

    The host has to decide what to do in order to survive. Sometimes the host has no clue in so many ways.
    As the TV says “Believe me.”

    Normalcy bias.

    It is normal to feed the middle class worms to the screwer and screwee system.
    Are there enough middle class worms to survive after predation by the system. Will the end of middle class worms end the system.

    Are we all Russians now?
    Are we all Chinese now?

    Why have I never gotten my check or bank draft or pallet of hundred dollar and 500 Euro bills?

    Do I (we) have to evolve enough to rid us of this system while keeping our hands where they are supposed to be that makes so many of us happy?

  • JTC

    More devolution than evolution I think. But Sam’s parable omits pertinent third-bird involvement and possibilities so I’ll help give the kiddies some hope:

    The blackbirds slyly teach and tell those blue ones don’t be stupid, leave the nesting and nurturing to the reds. Quite right that the reds stupidly agreed, and have been using up all the worms to try and feed all the begging screaming hatchlings, but just before the last story panel is reached they realize the blues have been conditioned to be fed by them not just as babies but forever, and see that their own are being starved, and worse, the rich worm hunting grounds are disappearing.

    So they begin to push those blue eggs out of the nest to fend -or not- for themselves. The blues don’t like this one bit and enlist their blackbird overlords to attack and do battle with the blues in an all out avian war, as the blacks know they can’t survive without burgeoning blues and the blues can’t or don’t want to have to find their own worms and feed all those bothersome screaming chicks themselves.

    To be continued…

    • Kafiroon

      I think I have devolved. I’m old cranky, do not listen to any BS “news” comm…
      opinions, blame hearing loss and claim I need glasses.
      So I eat all the “worms” I earn and f the so called “kids”. Starve, bitches.

  • Pamela

    Sam, you forgot to include any of the Raptors in the lesson plan.
    How they can turn the redbirds and bluebirds into a rather tasty snack or a meal for the baby raptors. All that ripping, shredding and feathers flying.

  • Chris Muir

    NOTE:DBD may not be up the next few days, or…it might.My computer is croaking, and I am in the process of repairing/replacing it.Thnx,C

    • JTC

      WHAT? Sending this whole community into withdrawal?

      You’ve approved of less important others doing a “fund me” thing, which you should do immediately yourself, or just open up for paypal donations and give us a number, asap.

      • JTC

        Unless of course this interlude could double as a well-deserved break? In which case we will survive until you get up and running again. :[

    • NotYetInACamp

      Like I could or would complain? Oy!

  • Once a year is THE RULE for Dbd.That’ll be coming up in 2 months as usual.This is just time,not money, insurance for a fickle computer until it is resolved.

    • Pamela

      We will all keep our fingers, mice and keyboards crossed and please tell me you have more than one backup….

      • I’m backed up totally,ext drives,etc

    • JTC

      And it’s a great rule; others would do well to emulate it.

      Still, no doubt there are those here who would be willing to help with an unexpected calamity if needed; even disciplined business can experience that and should not be afraid to call on their sources of support when justified.

      And one important correction…time IS money for all businesses, if anything even more so for ones whose only product is intellectual property.

      That said, already stacking up a few shekels for June.

  • epilitimus

    Um, Sam…He did evolve, or you would already be on your back, naked, and…

    • Grunt GI

      Well, um, there’s always tomorrow..or Tuesday….or Wednesday….like a great sniper Zed can be very patient.

      • Pamela

        Zed does know how to plan his ingress to the targeted area and his withdrawal once he has obtained the desired outcome.

        • Grunt GI

          Ok, now my second favorite comment of the day…

  • Henry

    As long as the kids don’t learn how to spell “Repbulican.”


    (Sorry — eight years of proofreading have permanently sensitized my eyes.)

  • Incredible the truth you speak, my friend.

  • Brian H

    Site nav seems a bit buggy.
