Frog Crotch

Indulge me, if you will, by allowing me to go on as briefly as I can about my method for composing these posts. First, I read the words for any sort of comedy gold. Today, for example, Max in panel one was pretty stupid but not funny. Similarly in panel two, there’s something there about Bobby’s mini-speech and in panel three I got a little chuckle out of him being so snotty in his reply to Leisl. OK, not a lot to work with there, so I start to examine the art for anything interesting: Panel one Bobby Howry looks as though he’s in his late forties, exploding ear lobe in panel two and so on. Then, I get to today’s panel three and probably didn’t even see it until the third or fourth time I looked at it.

We make fun of the backgrounds here at TWIM as part of our jobs, but I have to give credit where credit is due: in case there is any confusion, this is taking place in biology class. Good lord, I hope it’s taking place in biology class!



  1. RoBob, what horror have you unleashed? What ruinous force have you invited into the short-attention-span theatre you call your life? Why do you allow “what, me worry?” Mack Swell to sully your tender Ishii-space?

    That’s no mere frog he’s violating in P3, that’s a voodoo doll.

  2. One comment all day? Was it something I said?

  3. By no means, g2design. I think we’re trying to absorb this unexpected twist, in which Bobby turns from annoying twit to sympathetic sufferer with a poorly understood medical condition, and Supermax goes from scrappy underdog to– what was that term “Dick” Cheney used? “Major League asshole?”

  4. To add on, this development has clearly got to Bobby– he is barely civil to Lysol, who was beginning to like him despite his strange facets.

  5. So Maxwell’s a total rat bastard now and Bobby’s moved up to “sympatheic socially incompetent dolt”. OK, I’ll note that in the program.

  6. I thought “W” coined that phrase “Major League asshole”

  7. Rowdyman, I don’t remember which of them coined the term. Weren’t there a couple of similar things said on a mic they didn’t realize was open?

    And FoolyRain, I wouldn’t change the program just yet– it’s a surprise a day here.

  8. How did Chemistry turn into Biology? All the work they put into tracking names & numbers, and they just forget which science class Howdat & Lysol are taking.

  9. Bush called a reporter a “major league asshole” in an aside to Cheney, not far enough off-mic, and Cheney responded, “Yeah, big time.”

    Also, this has got to be the first and only time a TWIM post is entitled “Frog Crotch.” Please God, I hope so.

  10. Me too, John. Me too…
