Day By Day


  • Grunt GI

    BWAHAHAHA, are we about to find the answer to a great DBD mystery?

    OYYY, as long as it’s not that jackwad Karl or whatever his name was that Sam and Zed had to deal with many years ago cuz he was smacking Skye around…smacking, not spanking.

    Which as I recall, Sam did while wearing a little black dress with some crazy concealed carry capability.

    • pool dog

      Last we saw of Karl, he was wearing black, along with a white collar. Methinks a little time with the new Karl (if indeed he is such) might do Skye some good.
      Am I the only one who remembers that sequence in the strip?

      • Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of deplorable!

        Karl did look suspiciously like BBQ Boy we have on occasion now.

    • Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of Deplorable!

      There was also Tucker the Sheriff to think about

  • JTC

    Wow, no “fall back” time in the DBD world huh?

    “Just like her father” would seem to be a bad thing from what we think we know…so yeah lots of questions there.

    Bernie though? No question at all about what that little troll is.

  • Sam had an invisible pocket dimension that she used to carry her weapons. That way she was never without, but they could never be found if she was searched. That is the only way anything could have fit with what she was wearing. BTW given the appropriate timeframe, who was available to be the father then. I remember it was proven that Toly could not have been the father, though she claied that he was at first.

    • On second thought, maybe Chris will break the fourth wall and admit that she was handing the gun off for him to keep in his office until she needed to reach in and grab it for use.

    • Delilah T.

      I believe Heinlein referred to that as a ‘fold-box’, something which could store mass quantities of goods in a very small, nearly invisible space, but which stored equally massive volumes of energy and had to be treated with respect.

      • Halley

        Or, perhaps, like Gay’s restrooms from Oz…?

        • MasterDiver

          Or the inside of Lady Gwen’s (or any Lady’s) purse! (Watch out for the Guard Alligator!)

          Zar Belk!

      • Merle

        I remember that too !!! 🙂

      • NotYetInACamp

        They must have all been provided the technology by the Time Lords. 🙂
        Those sneaky Time Lords get around. Maybe Skye was a companion to a Time Lord for a while? Skye has the looks. Nobody would notice her being gone for a few minutes, observers time. Those companions get into all sorts of situations, as Skye does. And the Time Lord could have wiped both their memories of the Skye experiences.

      Isn’t it traditionally called “hammerspace”? from the ol looney toons days?

      • John

        And as a public service I will _not_ link you to TV Tropes.

        • Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of Deplorable!

          Abandon all hope those who enter it for there is no escaping.

  • Delilah T.

    Something strange is going on here.

    I don’t think either of those children will grow up to be anything like their Mummy.

    I think they’ll be more like their Auntie Sam.

    • NotYetInACamp

      Notice the pink versus black contrast. Forming personalities?

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Waiting with bated (or baited) breath for the next DBD reveal……..

    • Fox2!

      Which will be Sam. Or Sky. Or Jan. Or Naomi.

      All of which are greatly appreciated.

    • Interventor

      I have baited breath — sushi for supper.

      • JTC

        Better than ‘bated breath, we won’t discuss that supper.

      • Delilah T.

        Shepherd’s pie for supper. No wolves in sight. Chocolate chip cookies afterwards. Colder than McMurdo Station overnight.

        Note: S’posed to be another “demonstration” by leftidiots today. Will they freeze for their (lack of) morals?
        Stay tuned. Should be interesting.

        • cfm56dash7

          Well… it is springtime in McMurdo. Not Paris, so I don’t know what the local man’s thoughts turn to.

          • John

            It’s still too dammed cold.

  • KenH

    WHAT sniveling pustule impregnated SKYPE? Frankly, it’s useless information

  • Morgul Lord

    “Her father”… Vader?

  • So many comments already that would have had a like button pushed.

  • WayneM

    If memory serves, Skye said Anatoly was the father and “Toly denied as he believed himself to be sterile. Since then, ‘Toly discovered via Naomi that his family jewels are still fertile… Back me up here, boys & girls?

    • Grunt GI

      That was the initial teaser…but Skye finally fessed up that it wasn’t Anatoly..but we never got a hint of who it was…

      Kinda like “Who Shot JR?”

      “Who screwed Skye?”

      No doubt the list was long and not distinguished.

      • Pamela

        *looks at Grunt over glasses*

        That’s a good one. Some guy that needed any port in a storm.

        • nonncom

          “The girls all look better at closin’ time”….

          • John D. Egbert

            As Mickey Gilley put it many years ago: “Oh, the girls all get prettier at closing’ time; they all begin to look like movie stars . . .” Great song — might be on You Tube.

          • NotYetInACamp

            Beer goggles.

          • JTC

            No need for booze to see the allure of sexy Skye…remember that incredible upside-down spread-eagle promo of her that Chris used to use? Intoxicating all on its own.

            Where alcohol comes in, as it were, is in overriding the good judgement and wise advice of every man who ever knew and cared about you…”never stick it into crazy”.

  • Bill G

    Skye’s default programming undoubtedly tells her “All men are bastards” ,so she doesn’t even need to know whose seed did the deed.

  • Peet

    @Deplorable B Woodman:

    One of Robin Williams’ great lines in Mork and Mindy:

    Mork: I have a worm on my tongue.

    Mindy: What?!?!

    Mork: Baited breath.

    • Shazbot!

  • Pamela

    It appears there has been a distortion in the time vortex.
    It seems like only yesterday the twins were being held wrapped in blankets by Mari and Kiko. They are now dressed as toddlers wearing Flyers.

    • Chris Muir

      Just realized they gotta be 2, 3 years old had to bump ’em up! It’s weird when characters age 1 year for every five of ours. heh.

      • John

        It’s the result of aging.
        When we were kids time seemed to drag along.
        Now the world is accelerating past us.

  • Alex J

    Lovely Pamela – Time moves in weird directions in DBD.

    While genes are an indication of future abilities, environment and upbringing also play a big role.

    Are you two related?

    Only by genes and chromosomes. The genes are designer genes, the chromosomes are questionable.

  • Eddie Drood also has a pocket dimension for items he might need to reach for quickly. Allows him to be Shaman Bond without breaking cover by armoring up.

    • Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of Deplorable!

      Or Sandman Slim’s “room of 13 doors”, I’m only on book four but its reminding me a buttload of Eddie Drood and John Taylor with a heaping helping of Dresden thrown in for good measure.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    All this conversation sounds like it’s coming out of a Spider Robinson “Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon” story, the conversation, the wit, the scifi, the cross references. Where’s Fast Eddie when you need a piano player? Or Ralph the mutated operated talking German shepherd?
