When Your Name is Mud.

    And everything is soon to be off?

    • June 30, 2017 at 12:55 am

      And Congratulations, Chris. For rendering a very Frank Frazetta final panel!

      Great tone and shadow work!

  • June 30, 2017 at 12:05 am

    She ain’t wrong.

    But I don’t think Sam is a Repub in the sense she meant.

    And I really hope this ‘toon is not another metaphor, for what a prog will do when offered a hand.

      Nah. It’s just physics. When I go to help my wife out of her chair, I have to solidly brace myself before offering her my hand. Otherwise, she pulls me, and that helps neither of us.

      Skye does not understand what a Republican is; her only concept is the false one constantly repeated by the media she has believed all her life.

      • June 30, 2017 at 7:08 am

        Or the actions we’ve seen by the ‘republicans’ in Congress for the last 12 or so years…

    • June 30, 2017 at 7:02 am

      At least Sam didn’t have to worry about pulling back a bloody stump.
      Dem concept of cooperation: “Be reasonable. Do it MY way!”

      • June 30, 2017 at 4:33 pm

        And their definition of compromise is YOU must compromise, not me.

  • June 30, 2017 at 12:12 am

    No more calls… we have a winner !

  • June 30, 2017 at 12:13 am

    And, whatever mud the ‘pubs do sling, they are pikers compared to the pros…speaking of that MSM bias;

      DAAAAAA–MMMMMMNNN. That much vitriol should produce a stroke or heart attack in the writer and editor.
      And not that I would normally wish harm to another person……but I’ll make an exception in their case. I want to hear a news report where they were strokin’ out, and no one stopped to help them. Why? BFYTW.

      • June 30, 2017 at 11:13 am

        Unfortunately, they’re mostly immune to self-caused strokes like that. They’ve spent their whole lives building up a tolerance. Like the functional alcoholic who can drink a whole six pack and no one even notices. Doesn’t have the same effect as on normal people.

    • June 30, 2017 at 6:59 am

      Well, I just put myself on their Shit list by call attention to the facts that they’re the ones calling for President Trump’s assassination, calling anyone disagreeing with their drivable racist fascists. The D.C. shooter was a Bernie Sanders supporter, The Orlando and Sandy Hook shooters registered democraps, rioting on college campuses and during “peaceful” protests. In other words, they’re the ones doing the violence, but they’re saying we did it. Huh? What the F**k have they been smoking? Oh, that’s right, it’s legal now in their states or should be so they do it anyway.
      Be careful assumes or you will soon see what us “deplorables” Wil do when pushed too far; and it won’t be up hitching and moaning…or dying.

      • June 30, 2017 at 7:03 am

        Fucking “auto correct! Drivable should be drivel. Assume Assholes. Wil -will and up is us.
        Really? Censorship in Spell check now? WTF is next?

    “Repubs sling mud too”
    Depends on who they are. GOPe RINO politicians wouldn’t let butter melt in their mouths, they try so hard to be liked by everyone.
    Now, the average blue collar working stiff conservative Repub, they CAN and WILL sling the mud. And hard, and how! They’ve learned by hard experience, and the experience of others, that there’s no gain in playing nice with the Prog Libtard DildoCrat AntiFas enema……uhhhh…..enemy. Trying to sidle up and play nice with the enemy could be injurious to your health.

  • June 30, 2017 at 12:52 am

    Yep…… Saw this coming and warned Sam specifically about what would happen last night about this time.

    Now. Let’s see if “This Escalates Quickly”?!

  • June 30, 2017 at 12:57 am

    I was right… Skye is a dirty, dirty girl…

    That mud is gonna get into all kinds of places… I’m kinda jealous of mud for some odd reason… although the prospect of getting rinsed away doesn’t appeal.

    Hopefully, they haven’t ruined their frocks as I found both rather charming… although it might have been the form underneath that caught my eye.

  • June 30, 2017 at 1:15 am

    My brain tells me its mud, but why is Bill Clinton’s head on Sam? That’s an image I’m going to have to work hard to exorcise from my brain.

    • June 30, 2017 at 8:24 am

      Ouch. That’s a little harsh.

      But yea Sam is not looking too good there. Mud in the hair and everything.

      This is a problem I am not familiar with, mud slides right off my bald head.


  • June 30, 2017 at 1:24 am

    AAAAAND from here…

  • June 30, 2017 at 2:19 am

    Mud, clothes, text bubbles… it’s always something!

    Ahh, yes.

  • June 30, 2017 at 6:38 am

    Chris, will we ever get back comments on old ‘toons? Or am I missing something?

    • June 30, 2017 at 6:42 am

      I found it. Hidden away down there.

      DAYUM, Maureen O’Hara was a FINE FINE looking red head…an excellent inspiration for Sam, no doubt.

      The Quiet Man is the only John Wayne movie my wife watches willingly, and the only reason I agree to watch it is cuz Maureen is such a HAWTIE…..she had such good chemistry with the Duke.

    • June 30, 2017 at 4:48 pm

      I lost two teeth watching that film with my mother (who was a rabid John Wayne fan) and we weren’t fighting, we were laughing!

  • June 30, 2017 at 7:27 am

    Someone once wrote that the purpose of clothing on females is “to excite lewd, libidinous, lascivious, licentious, lecherous, lustful longings in the loins of Lotharios.” It looks like we must extend that to the purpose of mud, too.

    • June 30, 2017 at 9:11 am

      BWAHAHAHA, especially if they dress like the fine babes of DBD.

      Something about dresses and cowboy boots……”Save a horse, ride a cowboy”……

    • June 30, 2017 at 10:31 am

      Well you used up all the good L words so now how are we gonna explain the purpose of clothing -and mud- OFF of females?

      (to be cont. 7/1/17) 😉

    • June 30, 2017 at 12:00 pm

      More like diving into the dark, dangerous depths of carnality

    • June 30, 2017 at 5:56 pm

      I think that passage is found in Heinlein’s “Notebooks of Lazarus Long”, or posibly “The Number of the Beast”.

    Chris Muir, genius! Artistic, and otherwise! Bravo!

  • June 30, 2017 at 8:39 am

    GWB to see comments on older strips click on the name of the strip next to the checkmark above the upper left corner of the strip.

    • June 30, 2017 at 6:28 pm

      Ah, ok. I found the “previous post” bit at the bottom of the page, which takes you to the comments page.

  • June 30, 2017 at 8:50 am

    It seems you have to go down into the swamp to drain it. The folks who are in there ain’t coming out by themselves.


    It’s good to be us. Thanks, Chris!

  • June 30, 2017 at 11:21 am

    Ka Blort! Can I steal that word?

  • June 30, 2017 at 11:58 am

    EWWW GROSS! Better call out the Fire Department, Forestry with their Chinook and Tucker. I’ve got $20 on Sam for the win. That’s one hell of a mess to clean up.
    I think the correct exclamatory declaration for this is Fuck Me!

    • July 1, 2017 at 1:08 am

      NOT until they (Sam, please) are cleaned up!!!

  • June 30, 2017 at 12:00 pm

    Sorry OT Chris, but…

    The question is, WHY DID IT TAKE SIX MONTHS TO ARRIVE AT THE OBVIOUS SOLUTION? Could it be that this ignorant Neanderthal imbecile had it planned this way all along? Let them go through their motions and shenanigans and then JUST KILL THIS STUPID SOCIALIST SHIT? Could it, hmmm?

    • June 30, 2017 at 1:32 pm

      Well, a good case could be made that he spent the primaries outsmarting 16 other Republicans, and then outsmarted the entire enemedia and Felonia von Pantsuit in the general… so outsmarting is something he has proven to be excellent at.

      • June 30, 2017 at 11:14 pm

        Indeed. I am taking the long game and I believe that all of his tweets have a definite purpose to them. Even if it’s only to make people say ‘Why hasn’t somebody locked him out of his twitter account?’

    WOW! Can’t wait till it all comes off!!

  • June 30, 2017 at 5:12 pm

    Giggles aside
    My, how much of not-bitch SKYPE is, huh?


  • June 30, 2017 at 7:47 pm

    Well, I hit the contribute button before the clothes came off; feeling very noble about that now, but I expect the clothes to come off, Chris.

    Keep up the good work. A day without Day By Day is like a day without bourbon – cold, lacking in purpose, and deficient in humor.

    God bless!
