Day By Day


  • Wayne M

    Snake-loaf, made from the leftover rattler chili? Yummy!!

  • JJ

    Sam cooking? This could get ugly!

  • B Woodman

    So. .. .. Sam’s repjtation as a (non) cook is maintained.
    But Zed’s last line ’bout made me choke.
    “Tell me there’s a pony in there.”
    Does Sam’s cooking smell THAT bad?
    That is the punch line of a joke comparing an ungrateful child to a grateful child. A father gave his two sons a pile of horse manure each. The ungrateful child turns up his nose and walks away. The grateful son starts digging in his pile asking, “Where’s the pony?”.

    • B Woodman

      Substitute Skye for the ungrateful child.

  • John Carifidy

    I’m hearing Ray Wylie Hubbard singing Snake Farm in the background.

  • B Woodman

    I like that Sam is throwing the Botox Bitch’s Nancy Pee-lousy’s (in)famous line at Skye.

  • Calvin

    Meatloaf? I guess nipple gate is over.

  • Keith Arnold

    I dearly hope that by “you have to pass it” Sam isn’t referring to passing it gastrointestinally.

    And I’m hearing “I Don’t Like Spiders and Snakes” by Jim Stafford when I think of that meatloaf… I don’t like them even when they’re ground up with onions, tomatoes, and bread crumbs, Sam-I-Am…

  • Bill G

    Ah, well, no one has all skills.

  • Pamela

    Eww gross. She made meatloaf in that? In any cooking, you need the proper ingredients and tools for a good outcome.

  • Um…doesn’t Snake Meat taste like Chicken?

  • Big Jim

    “Hope Springs Eternal”
    I heard it as…..Boy gets box of horse manure for Christmas. Brother asks “What did you get?”
    He answers “I think I got a pony but I haven’t found it yet…”

    I am surprised no one has caught how Chris weaved the great Vermin Supreme into this one………..

    A bow to you sir!

  • Southpaw

    What do you do when you have a woman with the most perfect, bountiful breasts the Creator ever gave a human female, but can’t cook a whit, and its dinner time and you’re hungry?

    Answer: Phone book, under “Carry Out”

    See, wasn’t that simple?

    “I’ll do ANYTHING for love, BUT I won’t do that”
    Presumely Meatloaf commenting on eating Sam’s Meatloaf

    • B Woodman


  • Guitanguran

    Appreciate the Reagan pony story reference

  • Chris in N.Va.

    I always thought the you-have-pass-it-to-know-what’s-in-it statement was a tad to medical, sounded like when the doctor needs a stool sample to see what’s going on inside.

    On the other hand, not too far removed from what’s routinely delivered to the public from our Congressional “sausage factory”, though, is it?

    • B Woodman

      That’s a good argument for keeping bills short, in plain English, and individual (not omnibus). Then you can have the time to read it and (hopefully) understand it without having to pass it.

      • cb

        I hear Pelosi has recruited a few dozen undocumented folks to read the bills… doing work she won’t.

  • Which of the Founders was it said, way back in the beginning, to do just that? Keep it short and sweet, so that any citizen could read and understand any law?

  • Snafu F. Ubar

    James Madison, Federalist Paper #62 says, in part:

    “The internal effects of a mutable policy are still more calamitous – It poisons the blessings of liberty itself – It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?”

    The rest of #62 is as good or better than this excerpt.
    Google search term: laws should be understandable, the federalist papers

    But…in the 3rd panel, top portion, what are we looking at? It sorta looks like a large street lamp on the left and misc. guts or something on the right.
    I need more sleep maybe?
