    Chris ~ Good Sir, what are the three newest members of the family named…

    • December 9, 2018 at 12:55 am
      Chris Muir

      Samuel Wade Owens, Kavanaugh Thomas, Samantha Grishin.

      • December 9, 2018 at 12:58 am

        Samuel Wade Owens…:)

      • December 9, 2018 at 1:02 am
        Chris Muir

        Yup.Stole it from you.

      • December 9, 2018 at 1:24 am

        Can’t steal what is gladly and hopefully offered.

      • December 9, 2018 at 2:55 pm

        Ahh. Need to be careful with birthday present name tags.

      • December 9, 2018 at 5:03 pm
        Deplorable B Woodman

        Just so long as he’s called “Sam”, and not “Sammy”.

      • December 9, 2018 at 8:28 pm

        Samuel. Why fiddle with excellence?

      • December 9, 2018 at 8:47 pm

        Don’t matter, someone will go by the initials and call him Swo, then later his friends will call him Swopoke.

        Still might be better off than the kid named after two Supreme Court justices.

      • December 10, 2018 at 12:58 am

        Or, some lucky gaming goddess… 😉

  • December 9, 2018 at 12:22 am

    Anywhere else and ‘Lightbringer’ would have been the clue for Lucifer.

    • December 9, 2018 at 12:30 am
      The Nth Doctor

      Six of one, half-dozen of the other…

      • December 9, 2018 at 1:25 am


    • December 9, 2018 at 7:43 am

      They got it from the UFO contactees. To them, a Lightbringer is an extraterrestrial Ascended Spirit come to Earth to bring us enlightenment and lead us to membership in the Galactic Confederation…

      …As a low-tech agricultural planet supplying organic veggies to the UFOnauts while they zoom around the Universe in their magical flying saucers.

      Seems to me we get the short end of the stick in that deal.

      clear ether


      • December 9, 2018 at 10:01 am

        “To Serve Man” is still more likely.
        Or ” Janissaries”.

      • December 9, 2018 at 11:40 am

        I’m down with the Galactic Confederacy…I mean Confederation. 😉

        Not the first time elites have underestimated the power of food production and the people who produce it.

        All the more reason to maintain the means and methods of resistance, whether muskets, EBR’s, or rayguns.

      • December 9, 2018 at 3:56 pm

        Their solution: cultivate China instead, who will happily sell us all the melamine America can eat.

      • December 9, 2018 at 5:15 pm

        Let them reap what they sow…

        Delilah T

        I thought they got it from that episode of ‘Friends’, the one about the book that explains things like ‘lightbringers’ and ‘leafblowers’…. and well, which person really IS/WAS a ‘leafblower’ – not much good for anything except modeling menswear.

    I notice she’s doing the puzzle in pencil. Which is neither good nor bad, it just “is”.

    And many of us wish that the New Yawk Slime would hurry up and FINISH folding.
    I would bid $1 to buy it, just so I could fire everybody, sell off the assets, and dissolve the entire corporation. I would keep the rights to the name, so no one else could use it without paying me the BIG BUCKS. And even then, I might say no, just to be a mean hearted capitalist pig. hehehehe.

    Ok, ok, I might bid up to $2.50. But that’s my top offer.

    • December 9, 2018 at 1:31 am

      While I appreciate your offer, I would never want my name tied to that in ANY fashion.

      • December 9, 2018 at 9:46 am
        Deplorable B Woodman

        Oh, I wouldn’t mind being known as the man who disassembled the NY Slime.

      • December 9, 2018 at 11:23 pm

        Okay, I’ll buy that for a dollar.

    • December 9, 2018 at 10:31 am
      The Nth Doctor

      I’d do something far more cruel: I’d fire all of the reporters and editors, then hire all-new reporting staff from Townhall, Breitbart, Daily Wire, One America News, etc. and turn it into the *Conservative* paper of record. The wailing and gnashing of teeth from the left would be glorious.

      • December 9, 2018 at 11:59 am

        I like that Nth, and I’ve often wondered why conservatives have not bought a few of the big fake news orgs which right now should be pretty cheap, and crank out the same kind of one-sided propaganda as they do in reverse; maybe call them NYT180 and NBC180…That could and should come from the grassroots.

        Then the real news would sound a lot better to the left, coming straight from the twitter feed of The Donald. And if they try to censor it, don’t try to buy that hot air balloon, just let it deflate and establish an independent POTUS feed …tell me every deplorable AND every proglodyte wouldn’t subscribe to that. I’m not tech oriented enough to know if that’s something DT could relatively easily do? But if so he absolutely should.

      • December 9, 2018 at 3:42 pm

        As I understand it Twitter is slowly sinking, and if it weren’t for DJT it would be gone by now.
        The MSM depends on his tweets to stoke their numbers via the Trump Bump. Ted Koppel said as much.
        Maybe the POTUS is just waiting for the right moment to pull his account.
        I suppose it would be too much to hope that the MSM couldn’t pull out of the resulting tailspin.

      • December 10, 2018 at 1:36 am

        I have never joined twitter nor twot.
        I don’t feed that beast.
        I would join something not enemy.

        I almost joined twitter just for the POTUS tweets.

        MAJ Arkay

        Don’t have to. Just go to Twitchy and read the best ones there. Twitchy captures the most ludicrous of Twitter feeds, so that when the lefty deletes that idiot tweet, it’s still out there.

    • December 9, 2018 at 3:59 pm

      The New York Slime wholly owns the Boston Glob. I wonder if a twofer bankruptcy would be too much to hope for.

      • December 10, 2018 at 8:37 pm
        JJ cooper

        There was time when the Boston Globe was a readable newspaper.
        This was, of course, pre NYT.

    Love that third panel. The twins are growing up. And Zed is holding the infant (what’s his name, again?).

  • December 9, 2018 at 1:28 am

    Brilliant. But I expect no less from you.

  • December 9, 2018 at 1:30 am

    Wade is looking down at his ranch with much joy, I’m sure…

    I don’t know which is more disconcerting… how predictably crazy the leftists are OR how many normal people don’t recognize/realize the former…

  • December 9, 2018 at 8:54 am

    Here’s a thought: libertards don’t want girls/women to have children, so “birth control” in various forms is emphasized.

    Now, what happens to a species when it fails to reproduce?

    Meantime, the rest of us just go on about our business and hope that the implosions don’t spray too wide. NYT still trying to live on “subscriptions”…. yes, that will really keep it going… into the dumpster.

    • December 9, 2018 at 9:10 am

      Yeah. I get at least one SPAM a week from them, plus the subscription offer window that shows up whenever I open a link to a story from a news site. I liked the old snail mail offers. At least those I could send back, taped to a brick!

      Zar Belk!

      • December 9, 2018 at 10:39 am
        John D. Egbert

        You and too many others (me included) are the reason they don’t mail offers any more. Heh . . .

      • December 9, 2018 at 6:53 pm

        Did you tell NYT that you don’t wish to hear from them in any capacity?

        If so, then they are spamming you and can be sued.

    • December 10, 2018 at 1:21 am

      Delilah, up here in Canada, our funded state broadcaster, the CBC, recently published an article bloviating about climate change and claiming the most effective strategy to reducing plant food… I mean CO2 was to limit reproduction. So we tax slaves get to pay for propaganda recommending we self-genocide…

      • December 10, 2018 at 1:40 am

        Yet your taxes are massively raised to pay for those who will replace you, and sometimes that elimination of you dregs is intentionally done before your time. And it is all Sharia compliant.

    Somebody help an old man out here. The “folded” part about the New York Slimes I get. It’s the “too” part that escapes me. Definitely not firing on all cylinders this a.m. Bounced off a “medium” level M$ Klondike game this a.m. and I usually play flip 3. This getting old bit sucks – like watermelon through a drinking straw.

    • December 9, 2018 at 2:30 pm
      Chris Muir

      The paper she’s holding is folded.

    • December 9, 2018 at 2:32 pm

      Probably because the paper she’s holding is folded up.

      In other news, I made meatloaf yesterday but didn’t want the usual gloppy ketchup/brown sugar glaze for some sweetness. So instead of bread or cracker crumbs I used graham cracker crumbs and Oh God is this stuff good it’s better than it was yesterday.

      • December 9, 2018 at 3:47 pm

        I too am a great fan of food decadence.
        That’s why I have to diet by fasting one day a week.

      • December 9, 2018 at 5:42 pm

        Somedays I’ll just go meatless, usually because it’s quicker to make something without.

        And somedays I’ll go all-meat, usually after making a big roast or otherwise a lot. Helps to purge the built-up carb and veggie toxins.

      • December 9, 2018 at 4:55 pm
        Delilah T

        Try a beef roast in a Crockpot with assorted veggies, and the broth is beef broth with about 2 to 3 tablespoons of Worcestershire, 1/4 cup of red wine, garlic powder, thyme and oregano, and season the roast with mesquite smoke seasoning or steak seasoning. And leave it alone while it cooks. NO TOUCHING!!

      • December 10, 2018 at 8:25 am
        MAJ Arkay

        Now cook it on High for 6-8 hours, and that roast will just fall apart.

    • December 9, 2018 at 2:46 pm

      Yup, getting old sure can get tiring. Sometimes it seems like you’ve been doing it all your life.

        Hey, like that comment of yours, kadaka. If you don’t mind I do believe that I’d to borrow it to use myself….. Turning 60 in a few months.

        Oh, and you guyz and galz talking about food stuff, are making me down-right hungry now. Just opened a can of Clam Chow-duh soup, but youz got me wishing I went with a London Broil cooked at low heat over a long period. You know, “so tender that a baby could eat it.” That’s what my ole Army buddy Eric Perry, who’s an amateur gourmet chef, calls it when he roasts any kind of meats. So that any old farts, er I mean old folkies, er I mean Seasoned Citizens (like Rush always says), who don’t have any teeth like me, and can’t stand wearing dentures, can still enjoy a good meat meal!!!

        Keep up the good work, Chris. You make my door (or night, depending when I view daybyday) often like nothing else does. Stay safe friend.

        By the way, how does 1 add an avatar pic like Pamela, Delilah and the rest????

      • December 9, 2018 at 7:53 pm
        Greg Drake

        Sheesh.… I meant “you make my day (or night…);” not “door.” I’ll refer to kadaka’s comment as my excuse. I surely am getting olddddddd………Zzzzzzz. Huh, where was I? Oh yeah. Everyone keep safe during the coming end of year holiday times and in the new year coming ahead.

  • December 9, 2018 at 11:58 am

    I must confess… Until the last panel, my jaw was hanging below my chest. You got me pretty good!

    The logo for DBD Sundays is terrific BTW.

  • December 9, 2018 at 2:54 pm

    Why isn’t the Tech wearing HazMat gear? God knows where that sample came from and under what conditions…

    • December 9, 2018 at 3:55 pm

      She is wearing gloves and using a cover slip on the slide, but then again some people like to live dangerously.
      Personally, I’d be using a glove box and a remote camera on the microscope.

  • December 9, 2018 at 7:24 pm

    “…from the UFO contactees. To them, a Lightbringer is an extraterrestrial Ascended Spirit come to Earth to bring us enlightenment and lead us to membership in the Galactic Confederation…”

    Right; Lucifer.

    To an upper level leftist/Marxist/Fascist/Progressive authoritarian, and especially to a papist or a Jesuit General, the “Lightbringer” or “Illuminated One” is always Lucifer, AKA “The Wronged One”, or “Covering Cherub”, who they see as the rightful lord and savior, and so they view God the oppressor.

    That Obama was literally referred to as “Our Lord and Savior” by one of the journalist-minions is not forgotten. That was a thumb of the nose to Christians.
