Starbucks Jonezzz

Ok, what genius on set thought to give Mason a night-time sleep aid allergy remedy? If the guy isn’t sneezing he’s snoring. At least today’s strip does a fairly good job with summarizing how most of the readers are feeling after a week of the world’s smallest medical crisis.

    BatHack manages to draw out the Masone has sniffles arc to a full week of dailies and there still is no resolution.

    Pulitzer committee please stand down.

    One thing I’ll give Batiuk credit for, I’m constantly amazed by how he manages to top himself in the lameness of his plots. I seriously doubt there’s any other writer who would think “allergy medicine makes someone drowsy” would be a worthy way to end a week-long arc. And I’m so grateful for that.

    “Mason becomes ill and his medication makes him sleepy”…yep, that’s a real knee-slapper of a premise all right. Perhaps Batiuk could “switch things around” someday and include actual jokes in his strip, but it’s a longshot at best. At least he finally expanded upon the SJ mythos a little with that nonsensical babbling about the Zoltans from Gildorf or whatever the f*ck.

  4. No matter how dull you think a resolution is going to be, Batiuk makes it even duller. It’s a dictatorship of tedium.

  5. I dunno. That’s the best punchline we’ve had for an arc in ages. Wait… THAT is the best punchline in ages?!? Uh…..

    Dig the high tech backdrop on the set. You can tell this movie is going to be a blockbuster spending crazy money on sets like that.

    Yes, did any of these genius think to get a real doctor to check out the situation. That makes too much sense I guess.

    …yep, that’s a real knee-slapper of a premise all right.

    There was this one time when I set my alarm wrong, and I slept late and missed my appointment!

    And then there was the time when I ate a cookie a half hour before dinner and then I wasn’t very hungry for dinner when it was ready!

    I took a picture of my foot once!

    So none of those assholes thought to get some non drowsy meds?
