The More Things Change...

Hopefully everybody else had a wonderful break from the normal grind for a week or so around Christmas and New Years. I know I did.

As usual I went home to Nebraska for the holidays to spend some time with my family, which I always enjoy. Lots of great food, movie watching, and in particular quality time with Mom and Dad, which I wouldn't miss for the world.

Of course anytime I'm at home, my parents have inevitably come across some technical problem that they'd like for me to take care of, since after all, I grew up with technology and have been working with / studying it for going on 8 years now. Should be easy, right?

The weird thing is that my parents always manage to find the most ridiculous, impossible, never-been-heard-of-by-anybody-else kind of problems. And I'm not just talking about an extra hour or so of Googling to figure it out.

Their technical problems can become rather.... severe.

Love you Mom and Dad. I'm always happy to help with anything - even if it involves calling in Sigourney Weaver.

Since when does your dad call you son?

Heehee. I just noticed the archives... 80 posts in 2007- nice come back!

How would you know what my dad calls me? Have you been spying on my house??

That's just creepy.

Thanks em :)

I think anytime your dad appears in your comics he should have some sort of countdown timer until he retires. It could be a big LED countdown on a ghetto chain, or a nerdy wrist-watch calculator/countdown combo, or something else crazy, but he should definitely have something.

Also, you beat the alien by introducing a Predator to the mix. Then you introduce a Danny Glover to beat the Predator. I'm not sure how you beat the Danny Glover yet...I think it might be old age.

D Wheezy said...

Haha. Damn I wish I would have thought of that retirement timer.

Also, I'm pretty sure you beat Danny Glover by putting him near a bomb with a toilet on it, while simultaneously distracting Mel Gibson by enslaving Scotland.

I could be wrong though. Maybe Mel Gibson can be two places at once.

Double M said...

I think there's just multiple Mel Gibsons. Pretty sure they are cloning like Michael Keaton in Multiplicity.

The first Gibson did things like Lethal Weapon and Braveheart. When he retired after The Patriot, he sent the 2nd one out to do things like The Passion and that crazy Aztec movie. But then the 2nd one got lazy and made a 3rd one, spawning the crazy "sugar tits/I hate the Jews" version.

If that guy spawns off another one, we may have to introduce the alien back into society. Also, I think you can beat Glover with the crazy orphan kids from Angels in the Outfield although I haven't figured out how to beat them yet...

D Wheezy said...

I think that option would introduce Tony Danza to the situation, which is something I've been trying to avoid.

Ben said...

if you need to get rid of tony danza just find a single mother who doesnt mind a male nanny/housekeeper

Double M said...

True. No one likes a Tony Danza but he's easy to take care of: you just introduce Go Karts.

And then we're left with no computer problems and go-karts - and who doesn't love go-karts. Computer problem solved.

In conclusion:

Mother playing with settings ->
Alien eating computer ->
Predator kills Alien ->
Danny Glover kills Predator (Courtesy of Lethal Weapon movies) ->
Toilet Bomb kills Danny Glover ->
Tangential Mel Gibson multiplies ->
IT releases additional Alien ->
Predator kills Alien ->
Danny Glover kills Predator (courtesy of Angels in the Outfield) ->
Crazy kids from Angels in the Outfield kill Danny Glover ->
Tony Danza kills Crazy kids ->
Single mother / go karts -> kills Tony Danza

THAT's teamwork kids!

If I were you I'd use the single mother instead of the go-karts. Because then you have a single mother on your hands, and there's nothing wrong with THAT!
