Damn you, April.  Damn you.  *Shakes fist of endless marking at April*



  1. Think of it this way: at least you’re employed.

  2. You seem to cater to your commenters’ wishes quite well: that’s already 3 strips of Marie angsting 😀

    Also, unless the (beyond horrible) pun is a reference to something I’m missing, I am sad that you missed the opportunity to include a hippo here. The world needs more hippos.

  3. It’s true that the world needs more hippos. However, the crocodile is a creature more universally associated with the Nile. Besides, the word just sounded better there. Perhaps there will be hippos some other time.

    Marie is pretty good at angsting.

  4. It took me a second to get that. I had no idea you even had it in you to stoop that low. I was mostly thinking about a town in Oregon I “visited” called Denio. I was thinking “No way the pun is on that, that’s comically obscure”. And then I looked at the word “denial” again.

    I put “visited” in quotes because as far as I could tell, Denio consisted solely of an old gas station that didn’t work anymore, and the only reason we didn’t drive past it at about 80mph is that it was at an intersection.

  5. Erwaro: It’s what I sometimes call a “dad pun”: i.e., the sort of pun one’s father is prone to make at dinner parties. For some reason, dads are almost universally prone to these. “Dad humour” is a whole humour subcategory. Marie is shocked mainly because Evil Marie is not a dad.

  8. “Happy Random Day in April. Enjoy things.”

    I love it. It’s so… so…

    Well, I can’t describe it, so I’ll just post what first popped into my head when I read the comic. It’s from the Yugioh abridged thing, not from an episode but from a random update.

    “How many times do I have to tell you Bakura, I’m not gay!” (Marrik)

    “You could have fooled me” (Bakura)
    “And me.” (Marrik’s evil/eviller alter ego)

    “Hey, shut up, you don’t know anything about me!” (M)

    Marrik, he’s you! He knows everything about you!” (B)

    “He is the gay one!” (M)

    “Marrik, he’s you!” (B)

    “He is the gay one!” (M)

  10. Is the above one of your students, hoping to get in your good graces?

  11. I’m not sure. I know no blackwolf3. Who are you, O Black Wolf of Mystery?

    Comment by Kari — April 12, 2011 @ 2:11 am

  12. I’m a fan with nut for college English teacher. I live in US- state WI. he gave us a six to eight page research paper to do. (I feel for casey)

  13. A most convenient device to make up for the lost time due to the Ursula monologue. And I agree with the Alt-text: Barbara juggling knives is very disturbing.

    Comment by Stefan — April 13, 2011 @ 12:20 pm

  14. At least the knives are not on fire (yet?).

  15. I’ve had a brownie incident due to a minor lack of rest. Most of the other things I don’t remember, because I usually get plenty of rest. Although I do sleepwalk. That’s probably where the best stories are, but I’ve only ever woken up twice while sleepwalking.

  16. I would give you my magical ability to make headaches go away if I had any idea how it worked. And if my only idea on how to teach people to do it wouldn’t take, optimistically, several months to have any noteworthy effects.

  17. Oooh, it’s barbecue time! I just went over all previous barbecue sequences. A recommended activity.
