Golf Pro

I didn't know that golf had different terms for the ball going left or right. I figured hook meant the ball did something while slice meant the golfer did something. Learn something new everyday.

There are just so many poorly chosen clothing choices in today's strip? Is Brutus wearing socks with sandals or are those loafers? Ew.

Omelette du Fromage

"I made a healthy egg white omelet for you today!" Why? What did Wilberforce do to deserve this? Also, you just gonna stand there watching him eat this? He says it doesn't taste good, did you season this omelet? Is there some sort of meat or cheese in it? Did you put spinach in it? You put spinach in it, didn't you?!

Brutus Goes Through 20 2 Ounce Cone-Shaped Wax Paper Cups a Day

Cuz Brutus loves looking at dat ass!

I've already talked about how I feel about the stereotypical relationship Brutus has with Mother Gargle, I'm now just disappointed they've dragged the work watercooler into it.

Why Are You Talking About Your Smartphone? Is It 2007?

Veeblefester isn't going to slum it with the peons at their watercooler. He's going to bring his own bottled water or have his own watercooler in his office or right outside his office near his secretary. I mean, I don't think Veeblefester would pay for water delivery for his employees but that's a discussion for another day.

Gloat Bloat

Maybe I'm just tired but that first panel made my brain fart. It almost doesn't match what's being said in the last panel.

Gladys already agreed that Brutus doesn't gloat. She can't take that back now!

Bad Bed

You have to break it in first. It doesn't just conform to your body after one night. I had a memory foam mattress for nearly ten years and it wasn't great. Then we got a pillow top mattress which was just the worst thing ever. We've had a new mattress for a few months now and it's been really good.

What are we talking about? Oh, yeah. Uncle Ted should take that crappy mattress back. Hopefully it's still under warranty or whatever and he can get his money back.

Dinner Again

I'm just going to copy and paste my remarks from Saturday.

Ignoring the time of day you might be reading this, what's the funnier scenario that dinner is "still thawing"? Is Gladys just making a TV dinner? Or is dinner just a few minutes away and her special surprise is still frozen?

I'm Sick of Brutus' 'Woe Is Me' Attitude

Panel 1: Brutus and Uncle Ted are sitting at a table, each with a cup of coffee. Uncle Ted: "You look a little down, Brutus." Panel 2. Brutus: "It seems like everything that could go wrong lately, has!" Panel 3. Brutus: "Why does it always happen to me?" Panel 4. Uncle Ted: "You're not alone, Brutus. I've had my share of misfortune as well." Panel 5. Uncle Ted: "As they say, into each life, a little rain must fall." Panel 6. Brutus: "How do you handle those little rainfalls in your life, Uncle Ted?" Panel 7. Uncle Ted: "Metaphorically speaking, I try to dodge my way between the raindrops!"
Brutus has been sick all week so I don't know what could've possibly went wrong. Anyway, I've been reading this comic strip a very long time and I don't think I notice Brutus going through anything more than your average person. We all have those days, those weeks, those months, or even those years sometimes.
