      Not only no shirt, but an awesome cowboy hat…who says Chris doesn’t take care of his female readers?

    Zed sweating over Red wondering who Skye’s babydaddy is?

    Oh, hell no.

      It appears more like Zed is working his butt off while Sam is prattling on about Skye’s baby daddy, which I’m sure Zed doesn’t give a rat about at this point.

      As I recall, Skye got knocked up while on one of her runaway tantrums and was whisked off to Mama-sans to have the babies….anybody remember?

      • November 9, 2017 at 2:14 am

        Probably just CM jerking us around (again). 🙂

        But note his listed categories for this one:
        Men & Women, Marriage & Divorce

        And why all this fuss about Zed being shirtless? When I walk around the house like that, wife says “go put a shirt on”. 🙁 Maybe I’ll try a Stetson.

      • November 9, 2017 at 9:54 am

        I ask my husband why stop at just the shirt.

      • November 9, 2017 at 12:58 pm

        My wife says “Go shave!”

        All I remembered from that strip was the KSG, which I promptly obtained in two tone black and silver…

    Is Sam accusing Zed of being Eva and Hugo’s father? WTF?
    Or is Sam just upset that Zed isn’t paying attention to her non-news?

  • November 9, 2017 at 12:57 am

    Man, I wouldn’t pull a bob’ wire gate shut without something between me and the wire — preferably a denim jacket or leather vest.

    SKYPE? A SKANK who falls under he category “too lazy to jerk off”

    • November 9, 2017 at 8:42 am

      Don’t be lazy, and stay safe. 😉

  • November 9, 2017 at 1:29 am

    This isn’t much to think about. Zed is a man, Sam is a woman, priorities differ.

    Zed realizes it would take an n-dimensional version of March Madness Bracketology to figure this out.

    One father or two?

    Does the father (or fathers) know?

    Does Skye even know?

    Karl, Tucker, Travis, ‘Tory, or multiple players to be named later?

    The mind boggles.

    • November 9, 2017 at 7:32 am

      Zed’s a sniper, and they figure targets and timing. I suspect his money is on Karl, and that’s why he doesn’t give a particular shit.

      Except if Karl should show up trying to stake a claim, at which point Zed would tip the nod to Javier. Leaving Karl running like a MF’er with “Who Let The Dogs Out?” playing on his phone.

        I think it’s been too long after Karl’s departure for him to be the sperm donor…..besides, last time we saw him, He wasn’t ‘daddy’ but ‘Father’ Karl. I’m not Catholic but I do believe those boys are supposed to be celibate.

      • November 9, 2017 at 9:57 am

        I thought Zed gelded Karl…

        Horrible thought, what if the sperm donor was one of Zed and Sam’s discarded condoms and a turkey baster? eeeeewwwwwww!!!

      • November 9, 2017 at 2:56 pm

        Ew is right for another reason too.

        Condoms for marrieds? Hell no.

        That’s like doing it with somebody else’s dick.

        sorry….fk’d the whole thing up…..

    • November 9, 2017 at 9:47 am

      I like the n-dimensional bracket, but I think it’s easier to figure out who is NOT the daddy…Zed, Damon, Chris, KenH, the other regular readers of DBD. Every other guy on the planet is eligible.

        Don’t know if you should rule out KenH…remember the words of the Bard;

      • November 9, 2017 at 1:01 pm

        Heh ! hehheh!

      • November 9, 2017 at 7:43 pm

        Nah! Never would happen. I don’t think he’d be able to get that drunk to boink Skye.

  • November 9, 2017 at 1:46 am
    Too Tall

    Is an initial field of 68 large enough?

    How many play-in games were required to set the field?

    What criteria (if any) did the Selection Committie use?

    I know, very unchivalrous of me towards Skye, and this line of thought gets me a front row seat in an inner circle of hell.

  • November 9, 2017 at 1:59 am

    But admit it, Skye&Zed is massive hot. We’re being teased, but in a most steamy way..

      Skye & Zed is not even slightly warm, Kiddo. Ewww.

  • November 9, 2017 at 2:00 am

    I feel his pain. Some of those wire gates are a bastard to get closed again.

    • November 9, 2017 at 3:40 pm

      He needs an “S” curved lever.
      The best ones were made of part of a horse collar. They’re light and can stretch the wire real tight.

  • November 9, 2017 at 2:20 am

    Speaking of daddys, Zed needs his to tell him to use a rope to pull that gate tight.

    • November 9, 2017 at 9:58 am

      I’d use a ratchet come-along, like I use to stretch chain link fencing.
      And still wear protective clothing.

      • November 9, 2017 at 12:12 pm

        Come-along for stretching runs, rope for pulling wire gate together…quick trucker’s hitch works like a simple block and tackle but without the block or the tackle; lets you pull sections together or tie down loads with one hand while you connect them or tie them off with the other.

        That and the clove hitch are most useful knots in the world.

  • November 9, 2017 at 2:35 am

    Sam is looking fair-to-middling grumpy… I know engineers like to find solutions to questions but this seems an overreaction…

    • November 9, 2017 at 11:25 am

      Sam needs to get laid

  • November 9, 2017 at 8:54 am

    With regard to Skye, Sister wants to know and Zed couldn’t give a shit. In fact he probably doesn’t want to know since he has been raising them hizelf, and pest elimination could be problematic.

    I hear a soundtrack for this strip, “My give a damns, busted”.

    Is it me or does Zed look awfully buff as compared to usual? Possible dream sequence?

      So even Pamela would tell ’08 Zed to put a shirt on. 🙂

      A decade older and the boy is now beefed and buffed.

      I hate this time-warp shit. 😉

      • November 9, 2017 at 1:05 pm

        Working a ranch or farm. Big difference to many jobs. Key is
        amount of physical work.

      • November 9, 2017 at 2:31 pm

        You know me better than that. I’d ask him to take the bottoms off.

      • November 9, 2017 at 3:26 pm

        Guess Sam ain’t the only one needs layin’? 😉

    OT: Any of you folks seen this?
    California NAACP seeks to abolish ‘Star-Spangled Banner,’ calling it ‘racist’

    (from the article)
    The California chapter of the NAACP has a solution for the NFL take-a-knee flap: Get rid of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

    The organization is urging Congress to jettison the national anthem after passing a resolution at its Oct. 26-29 state conference describing the tune as “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon.”

    Read the rest here:

    Anyone giving odds it happens? Not this year, maybe, but sooner or later? I figure that if the Dems have a working majority in both houses and Obozo 2.0 at 600 Penn. Ave. it’s a sure thing.

    • November 9, 2017 at 3:50 pm

      Yet another piece of nonsense exuding from the People’s Democratic Republic of California.
      Just for that we’ll make ’em pay their fair share of taxes.

      • November 9, 2017 at 11:58 pm

        You spelled it wrong. It’s People’s Democraptic Republic of California.

    • November 9, 2017 at 8:10 pm

      The only line that even comes close is in the 3rd stanza “No refuge could save the hireling and slave” that represents the mercenaries and pressed men used to fill the ranks of the British Army and Navy. Remember the Hessians defeated after the Delaware crossing were a Mercenary Regiment of Germans.

    The DPRK is such a fun place to live. Wall Street Journal published a study c. 2012 in which they assert that between 1985 and 2005 California gained 13 million new residents. During that same timespan, California only gained 150,000 State income tax payers. can you say “Not sustainable?” Ol’ Red seems to still have a case of the ass over Skye’s little faux pas with Zed’s hand.

    I can guess who the baby Daddy is NOT.

    Definitely none of the following: Woz; Zebo; Sean; Repo; Zig; Zack; Bill C. (he’s sterile); Gandalf; Jorry; Bends; Zed (he has better taste in women)
    Maybe/maybe not: the protester guy in the elevator in Portland; the Commissar (any warm bed in a storm); Emperor Jones
    Maybe: the hobo at the truck stop on Rt. 84; the guy bumming quarters for food at the local grocery store parking lot when the food pantries are open all day; Javier and Javier’s great-uncle Menudo. 🙂

    That was fun. Thanks for the “more Zed’ response. CM. I lugged groceries in all afternoon. Glad to see someone else working and sweating.
