I was at the library over the weekend, and they have all kinds of crazy books there! I was browsing the ‘eroticized autobiography’ section, hoping to find some inspiration, when I came across THIS book by RYAN NORTH.
Inside the front cover, the dedication starts right up with an indication of what’s to come:

This book is shouted from the rooftops at all the haters, all the squares, all the sugar-pushers, all the downtown cruisers, all the eagle-boys, all the late-night mamas, all the daddies with their packs on, all the servers, all the waiters, all the rack babies, all the dollar hustlers, all the soda jerkoffs, all the brownstains, all the bronyboys, all the nerdlovers, all the sandy wigglers, and all the 3am jonesin’ candyattic crashers who made this ride as real as it got.

I think that last bit is a reference to Joey Comeau but as for the rest ???
I wanted to check it out and read more but it was ‘REFERENCE ONLY’ and also it was really, like, sticky? That may have just been my library’s copy BUT in the colophon it also says:

Titles set in Ostrich Sans
Text set in Curlz MT
Coated in Rio Grande sticky wax
Each copy kissed by the author or his representative

I’ve already got ENOUGH copies of stuff kissed by Ryan or his representative so I said NO THANK YOU

Malki’s Negotiating Tactic #278:

Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want

I really like this lady from today’s comic. I hope we get to see her again.

She stood watching, thinking, rehearsing. She mulled the riddles in her mind, swapping their order, teasing the wording until each word landed just so. Once the travelers arrived, she would boldly deliver her challenge.

She spent this day, like the others, searching the horizon. First in one direction, then the other. The road leading here was overgrown, and the season nearly over, but still. Someone would arrive soon. They would have to. They would have to hear her riddles.

Don’t you DARE try to put rocks in your pockets to try to qualify to be a mailman! WE WILL FIND YOU OUT

Lynx-eyed examiners OMG! I couldn’t not draw this:



This is both exactly as I read it and also somehow far more terrifying

First picture: T-shirts that have shown up on Zazzle in the wake of the Ferguson shooting of unarmed resident Mike Brown by police officer Darren Wilson.

Second picture: Zazzle’s base prices for those same products. The difference is the shirt creator’s intended profit.

The first three shirts are by someone who set up a Zazzle store to sell these products only. The second three are by some bot or bored person who has a million shirts of every conceivable design, all ripped from Google image searches. 

If you see anyone wearing one of these shirts — or one of these — you should consider it a Terrible Person Uniform, and you have my permission to not save that person from an oncoming train.
