sometimes it’s not just a sally forth punchline. sometimes it is a dire thing
I read the first character as having the voice of Ian from "The Cat Whisperer" blam. I still can't stop laughing.
I luv a big cuppa with mah boigas in the morning.
He could do what I did, and just go to work in the coffee industry. You have everything you need to work, at work, and you don't have to pay for it!
Ugh, that first line is almost worse than "Looks like you have a case of the Mondays" when it comes to rage inducing work place platitudes.
I know. They're totally trivializing Mondé's disease. That's what killed my brother, and it sickens me to think that some people make a joke out of it.
translate it to french. everything sounds better in french.
Worried guy should lay off the simple sugars and carby breakfasts or all the coffee in the world won't help with the self-med.
I know this because of, um…
millions of people die every year from overdosing on self! please seek help!
The leading cause of death is life.
do ppl really do that? i can't even finish one cup o day!
The best part of waking up, is the knowledge that you are, in fact, an addict trying to curb your self-perceived mental disorder. Your understanding that, by gaining the ability to think consistently, you surrender your capacity to function without some form of caffeine. The twitching. The insomnia. The explosive, EXPLOSIVE diarrhea that alienates everybody who shares a bathroom with you. Knowing that you know that you are caffeine's bitch. And that you _like it_. That, of course, is combined with the preexisting, gnawing feelings of inadequacy, self-doubt, and existential dread, leading to your eventual mental breakdown in the summer of 2016. Your life will be destroyed by coffee, metaphorically speaking. Also literally speaking, as a sentient species of coffee will enslave humanity in 2016.
Wait. Crap. It was "Folger's in your cup," wasn't it. Dammit, can I get a do-over here?
I… I came.
Can you inform me *before* I step in it next time?
ONE: Excuse me?
MAKER: (Laughs.) Sorry. Sorry. I’m not actually a bear. I just mean that I’m like a bear.
ONE: You pretend to be a bear?
MAKER: No. I feel like a bear feels when he wakes up. You know, grumpy, impatient.
ONE: Do you become a bear when you say it?
MAKER: No. I just say it.
ONE: (Still doesn’t understand.) Oh. OK. I see.
I read the first panel and glanced at the last panel and was disappointed to see that neither character turned into a bear.
Then I thought about it a bit, and was gratified.
He just didn't make that choice, man.
"Hmm. Maybe try singing it? Maybe that will make your problem easier to–no, nope, still depressing."
You think person 2 has it bad? Person 1 has to live with an upside down face.
Coffee is just a bean that made a choice.
Those of us that struggle with coffee, and coffee drink addictions have played out this scene far too often. I drink it to counteract my chronic narcolepsy and fatigue.
There is no greater tragedy, except perhaps bubble tea drinkers.
Fun Fact: Those brown balls in the bottom of the drink are heroin.
I was unaware that heroin now comes in a chewable form.
Can you please make a shirt of the second panel. I would buy that because IT'S TRUE.
As would I. Cause it IS.
this should be the second comic where "being a bear" is a tag.
My life is not a light-hearted t-shirt. Which is why I buy so many of them! I need the cheering up.
Thank you for providing me with a new all-purpose response!
It is by caffeine alone that I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of java that thoughts acquire speed. The hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning. it is by caffeine alone that I set my mind in motion.
Well, "It's a Dire Thing" would be a lighthearted t-shirt.
I do the same thing for my ADD and so far its.. Look a blue car!!!
Yeah I would have thought coffee shortens attention spans even more. He should try drinking tranquillisers!
Cmon Kris, they could at least shift their forearms
first time here, huh
Sometimes it is a dire thing… LIKE A DIRE BEAR?
I hate people who "self-diagnose" themselves as anything, especially ADD. Unless they decide to "self-medicate" themselves with arsenic.
I don't see anything but metaphors and what could be cut and paste from a Freshmen psychology text book. And, as has been mentioned previously, Mr. Hilton fails to mention birth control's role in declining birth rates. He also seems to target men and pornography, not even mentioning women and pornography.
