It doesn’t actually take much math to figure out that you can’t out-exercise your own eating. I read, years ago, that the amount of energy (measured in calories, of course) that you get from two whopper meals was equivalent to the energy burned, more or less, running the Boston Marathon. That’s kinda horrifying. And it explains my gut.

Okay, here’s a DOUBLE DUTY Throwback Thursday. Brian is a Patron, as in “he went to the Patreon page and became a Patron.” And so, he gets a thing. In this case, the thing is the only Hubris skydiving cartoon I can recall doing. I don’t think I ever colored it and put it on the site, even though it’s from the syndicate packages that I did back around 2001, so it’s been available to be on the site for a long time. Anyhow, Brian is a skydiver and he’s a Patron at the level where you get yourself an autographed original Hubris cartoon, so he gets it. You guys get a photo of it.
Yeah, it’s easy to say “Wow, Lowell is a crappy neighbor.” But when you’re of a clearer mind, it’s ALSO easy to say, “Wow, Paste is a really, really crappy neighbor.”
You have to have the proper balance of personalities to play a good game. Or maybe playing games properly leads to having a balanced personality.
Chips and Dip. Is that a thing? Do young couples still bring chips and dip to get-togethers, or is there some fancy hip new thing I don’t know about? Cheese and spiced hams? Organic fruits and locally sourced Hummus? Cheetoes?
And you finally get to see the second of the Kara-Being-Uptight-and-Motherly cartoons that just never seemed to fit the feel of the comic as it’s now evolved. And so, it was never inked, never colored, and never posted… til now.
Just for the record. I have nothing against kids. Or having kids.
But, they ARE kids y’know. Sometimes they are difficult to be in the room with.
I still remember there was an old episode of WKRP in Cincinnati, where the weird guy is being interviewed on the radio- he says that when you give a kid an IQ test for an adult, they score ‘Crazy’. (I’m paraphrasing.) What a great observation.
So here we have an example of a comic strip that didn’t fit. You will probably have noticed that Hubris and Kara rarely fall into any kind of Domestic Tableau. I wrote this comic, and a follow-up that you might get to see next Thursday, and then looked at it and said, “Huh. That doesn’t work. They didn’t go there.” and I scrap-piled it. I just can’t conceive of Kara taking on the domestic Wife/Girlfriend traditional role, and I can’t conjure up a proper interaction from Hubris if she did.
But having said that- here’s the cartoon anyhow-
At least two of you guys are waiting for Patreon goodies now, and one of them is a fine caricature. Hold on. Time delays and crazy stuff have kept me from getting stuff together for you. If anyone else wants Patreon goodies, by all means, click on the Patreon button down there, and after the first of the month following your signing up, Patreon releases your info to me for sending out goodies… which I’m not quick to get back to you, but I haven’t botched it all up yet, so far as I can tell.
