The Gods Must Be Lazy

With his “home of the fearful” riff yesterday, it appeared Funky was about to launch into a political diatribe; however, today he veers into that other topic we’re supposed to never discuss in polite company. “Every day there’s news of one religion or another [emphasis mine] trying to elbow each other out of the way”? Uhh, ok. I guess he’s talking about those militant Presbyterians. Where the hell does Funky get his “news”?

    And this is the result when you try to make a “point” in the most roundabout and vague way possible…idiotic nonsensical babbling. Yes Tom, “religions” elbowing each other aside is quite a “problem” nowadays…I guess. Next time the TV news in on in the background try paying attention instead of gazing out the window and catching only bits and pieces.

    Lost limbs, dementia, cancer, war, Dinkle and other hilarious topics aren’t enough for this strip!! Oh, no- only The End of Days is good enough for the Funkyverse!

  3. This certainly would be a fun AA meeting. “We’re all doomed and everyone is going to hell!” “Uh, thanks for sharing with us Tom. {whisper} Damn. He found us again. Pass the word. Next week at location Alpha 5.”

    The gods took their eye of Funky Winkerbean long ago, except for maybe Pluto and Achlys.

    If this was an AA meeting, somebody would have stopped Funky mid-sentence by saying, “In keeping
    with our singleness of purpose and our Third Tradition
    which states that “The only requirement for A.A. membership
    is a desire to stop drinking,” we ask that all who
    participate confine their discussion to their problems with

      If that is the genuine response, say on Friday, it would be great.

      But Funky needs to get his head out of his ass and do his research. Things have ALWAYS been at least this chaotic, divided and crappy…and it the past most of the time it was actually much worse. You want a crazy power hungry populist pandering president, look at your 20 dollar bill. You want deadly divisiveness brimming with clannish distrust and racist nationalistic sentiment, how about the Reconstruction era South?

      People in the past just didn’t have smart phones constantly updating them on The Black Death, the Crusades, Armenian Genocide, Crimean War.

        What people like TB and other luddites don’t understand is between now and the past is communications tech. What used to happen in another city/state/country you usually didn’t hear about it because it was so far away. Now all news is local even if it happens on the other side of the planet. Since people who grew up in the time when all news was local they map all this news into their local area in their mind.

        Now TB you’re only seven years older than me so were in the same cohort so let me tell you it is possible to pull your head out of your ass. Not all change is bad and the past was not some lost golden age.

    I’m guessing that this rambling is going to go on until at least Saturday. Only 1543 more days of this until the 50th anniversary.

  7. This ranting is the sort of thing one hears from a person who hasn’t stepped out of his house in decades. I almost expect the week to end with “…and it’s all that bastard Nixon’s fault!”

    So who’s the dude who is smoking? you can’t smoke in AA meetings! Nicotine is an addictive substance.

      Who say’s it’s tobacco? The guy looks TERRIBLE. I’d totally believe he has a ‘script for some medical weed.

    I was initially sem-happy to see a strip featuring Funky instead of Les for once, but then I realized it’s only because TomBat doesn’t want to taint his self-insert with alcoholism or anything else that would suggest anything but perfect moral character.

  11. I wonder what taboo Fatty Fatty Fatfat will violate tomorrow. Will he out someone without their consent?

    “Mr. Winkerbean, this is the PTA meeting.”

    Big word bubbles, lots of words, awkwardly put together, nothing said.

    So let’s take an objective look at Funky Winkerbean. He owns the most lucrative business in town and he’s president of the local chamber of commerce. He survived a near-fatal car wreck with no lasting ill effects. His wife is the world’s leading Starbuck Jones authority. His father has made a miraculous recovery from late-stage dementia. His no-goodnik stepson joined the military and returned home a model citizen.

    So WTF is he bitching about? “The world”, current events, politics, blah blah blah. Seems to me that “the world” isn’t really the “problem” here, eh?
