Day By Day


  • Wayne M

    If only shit tests were that predictable… You know they’re gonna happen but scheduling, frequency and duration are all subject to change.

    • Gideon Reed

      Sorry. I am a pretty old guy, and I cannot make sense of the “test”.
      Is this a cross cultural or generational thingy?

      • Gideon Reed

        OK. I “Googled” it. I am glad and proud to say that I am of a different generation. I cannot recall anything similiar to this i.e.”test” when I was in a similar younger age bracket.
        I think Wade would likely call me the ol’ guy over there.
        And that’s OK with me.

        • Wayne M

          Count your blessings, Gideon.

          Most shit tests are designed so it isn’t possible to pass; damned if you don’t, damned if you do.

          • Kristophr

            Shit tests are easy to pass, Wayne.

            Just be a man and ignore them. You fail a shit test by taking it, instead of laughing at it.

            And yes, this kind of crap is a post women’s lib baby-boomer form of retardation. Women invented it to weed out the whining hippies from the men.

    • Kevin M

      Just like the Muslim prayer times…all different every day of the year.

      Maddening BS.

  • Hb

    Hummm….also seems like it is time to “test” that the plug still goes into the socket. :-p

    • Grunt GI

      Hmmm. Methinks Zed wants to stress test something….

  • Chris Muir

    Masterchief was Iphigenia.Bye, troll.

    • Had to dispose of a troll? To the plus side, trolls only nibble on sound bait. You, my friend, are one of the absolute soundest I know.

    • Vox Day actually gathered sufficient evidence to get the police to take down a troll that had been plaguing conservative SF writers for the better part of a decade. There’s a lesson tolls should learn from this. If they don’t want the court to order them off of even seeing a computing device, they’d better learn to cool it.

      • Bill G

        Fortunately, there is neither a closed season or a bag limit on trolls.

  • B Woodman

    Stress shit tests. They’re only fun when they happen to something/someone else.

    • Indeed. Too many of them in my time. I don’t have the patience I used to for those anymore. I react more quickly, because I don’t have time for that shit anymore.

  • Gary

    Gee, I wonder how many I’ve passed or failed. Never heard of it until now.

  • KenH

    RED. smarten up
    The bitchbeast that is allegedly your sister is lucky to be allowed to continue consuming oxygen. Suggest you tell her to frack off back where she came from, before she gets mailed there slow boat in a container
    What the hell is wrong with Sam??

    • B Woodman

      It’s ok. Being an engineer, Sam is just “pushing buttons”. She really doesn’t want Skye to stay at the main house.

  • Bill G

    Skye is definitely a stress-raiser. And she seems to be one that likes the idea of causing fractures.

    • eon

      While denying she’s doing it. Even to herself. “It’s not me, it’s (fill in the blank).”

      There’s a fine line between a stress-raiser and a sh!t-stirrer, and the ones who don’t know which one they are, or aren’t even aware that they are one, are probably a bigger problem than the ones who know and enjoy the knowledge.

      (Had both types in the family growing up.)



  • Chris, what evil plans are you hatching? What’s Jan and Damon gonna do, stay in Argentina? Skye staying on the ranch, abandoning her kids, causing friction, within range of an Israeli commando who’d cheerfully fertilize the back-40 with her? Not to mention the Feds lurking on the perimeter? So many options…..

  • Bad Cyborg

    Nice toe.

    • B Woodman

      I hoped that someone besides myself noticed that.

      • Noticed it, didn’t want to comment to avoid it not happening again. It made me smile.

  • In the first panel, it appears Sam’s underwear is too tight. She should take it off, for her health’s sake. And toss the rest of her underwear–also too tight for health’s sake. And, given Sam’s and Zed’s financial situation, she probably shouldn’t spend the money on any replacements.

  • JTC

    Guys choose mates, and gals choose mates, without all the psychobabble, which is actually the worst form of manipulation. As to seeing a tiny fraction of the picture, most need to see the big picture, literally and preferably scantily clad, to determine suitability as a sexual partner.

    • JTC

      Well, that’s now into the void…it was in answer to the whinery of the troll who has now been zapped, so ignore.

  • Unca Walt

    (*sigh*) When my redhead has been misbehaving, she walks in topless. Gets me every time. She then whispers in my ear:

    “You’re EASY!”


  • Chris, you stroke your pen expertly. 😉 Love them curves.

    • B Woodman

      “Stroke your pen.” Pfffft. That’s one way to put it.

  • DocWahala

    Chris, from time to time someone suggests crating a legacy notebook for the strip. I know your busy, but if there was enough interest in organizing a team to work on it and an organized format, would you be interested in seeing it happen?

    Had some ideas on how to set it up, was just curious if it would spark any interest.

    • Chris Muir

      Too busy writing Sam’s Novel.Thanks though!

      • DocWahala

        My wrong; wasn’t meaning it was something more for you to do. Just wanted to see if you had any interest in that sort of project taking place. Wouldn’t mind organizing it for you and working it through. With the right size team, it could be 80% complete in 24-36 days.

        • Chris Muir

          No;I prefer keeping DBD close to the chest, so to speak.:)

  • JTC

    hello again Iphie, goodbye again Iphie!

    • Chris Muir

      Could be.They always self-ID soon enough.

    • Chris Muir


  • Bill

    This SST kind of mind numbing clap trap reminds me of the Hot vs Crazy Matrix. It is 100% accurate, including the proper classification of women that are below a 3 crazy and above a 9 hot.

    Crazy is crazy regardless of what you call it.

  • Adam Berl

    Has anyone else considered DBD greeting cards? Just a thought…you know. Birthdays. anniversaries…bar mitzfah with Naomi…?

  • JTC

    Self-ID’d with the handle (Bubba? Really Iphie?).

    Confirmed with the passive-aggressive sexist babble.

    Sorry you wasted an earnest (but unnecessary) explanation on “it” when you could be drawing more “tit”.
