Comic: Recorded Confessions

This is Pi Day #060

I saw a buy-and-sell posting for an old radio, and it says: works perfect but the volume is stuck on stuck on full. I thought… I can’t turn that down!

…so she says “Your secrets are safe with me, dad!”

We’ve been having a lot of frank conversations lately, because y’know… eleven-year-olds are curious about how the world really works, and those types of things that you don’t normally talk about in regular conversations. Money. Politics. Religion. Family drama.

And you think to yourself… y’know… Secrets.

The next day happens and, boom… “I told so-and-so at school about….” Well, I may as well broadcast that on the internet, right. Maybe we should have started with a conversation about tact.

Comic: Capital Confusions

This is Pi Day #058

Instead of getting all political and WRITING ABOUT MY FEELINGS ONLINE, I’ve opted to get meta-political and hearken back to the good ol’innocent days of just remembering how I went about explaining it to the kid.

If only I could keep her young and naive to the follies of the modern state of discussion online… but kids talk. And yell. And try their best to act like grown ups, even if that means debating with each other in the schoolyard over the decay of political institutions whilst challenging each other to a virtual knuckle sandwich.

I do my best to set a good example.

Comic: Grown Up Problems

This is Pi Day #055

It’s been a heckuva week, and I haven’t been feeling particularly funny. It happens. Really.

I light of some real life events that have bubbled to the surface in the past couple months, this comic actually started off as a social media rant… that I didn’t actually post… then a blog post… that I didn’t actually publish… then as a comic… which seemed about as subtle as a hammer to the knuckles, but sometimes you gotta use your platform for something besides fart jokes, right?
