Hehe Good one.
Atleast Miss C knows what she’s in store for if she had looked at the Jumbotron :), Pres being another species and all.
Im surprised that the broadcasting channels didnt add the 5 second delay thing :), could have spared Abe.
I hope to see another episode where Abe meets Pres after the game..the awkward silence :).

Bernie, this one was awesome. Congrats, Big B. Wait. Big B’s nickname doesn’t sound right in the context of this strip…

I just remembered THE best way to give the finger. But, if I tell it to you here, it loses all funnininess that it once possesseded. Go watch the beginning of Top Gun.

I’m not in the times…

Hmm.. Abe seems to be unaffected by the sight of Preston’s weewee. Is it because it’s nothing new? Is it really small? Scratch that last one, he’d be laughing. Is it because he’s already seen it? A real melon-scratcher…

Actually “Big-B” is not a copyrighted work, but the alias of Benjamien Bryan Cooper, aka Big-B, who did copyright “Make it Bounce” in 1997.

Also, one can not copyright a slogan or tag line as such, it would have to be a trademark. And the LIVE registered trade marks close to Big B are:
B BIG BLOCK, INC
BIG BOB GIBSON BAR-B-Q
BIG B.U.M.
B I G BLACK INVESTMENT GROUP

one more thing, one can not usually take legal action unless the work has been registered.

Holy crap, that was so funny…

I have a question: did Pres flash/moon the Jumbotron or did he impale/decapitate/dismember/vaporize someone? Or did he do both at the same time (e.g., cut off somebody’s head while naked)?

Lyingbastard
June 24, 2005 at 12:10 pm

Remember the strip at the gym? (#93) Preston says “I can do 70 push-ups with my penis.”

Now, since a Predator probably isn’t prone to lying about feats of strength, that means his Randy Johnson (the perfect double entendre name) is large enough to raise and support the rest of his body.

Yikes.

There was one small flaw in that.
If JC is a pitcher and he’s in the American League, he doesn’t hit, they use the DH.

Hmm. I was under the impression somehow that everybody in NY liked baseball. I mean, how can they not?

Wow. Showing your penis on the Jumbotron. That sounds like a man’s dream. As the comedian said, maps only make sense to men because only a man can translate the concept of one inch equaling one mile.

By the way, I have a 17 inch penis. Unfortunately, 12 inches of it is in another dimension that only I can see.

Wow! I wasn’t expecting that. Good job B.

Since she has minor precognitive powers, how come she didn’t see that coming, or is that what she meant when someone was going to get a hit in the next three innings? Did he drop trou, or loincloth in this instance, and then get smacked by Corrina?

I guess we’ll see Monday.

Bernie,
are you ever going to ramp up production and turn this into a Daily?

TeratoMarty
June 24, 2005 at 5:45 pm

I think that Preston’s decision to reveal his trouser-trout was a profoundly feminist act. Instead of cooperating with the cat-calling men (sexist) or pretending it wasn’t happening (wussy) he retaliated. He subverted their sexual agression by exposing a body part coded as active and subjective rather than giving them the passive, objectified body part they demanded. He used his own sexual agency on Corrina’s behalf to counteract the other men’s objectification. If he had merely been attempting to drive other males away from his claimed female, this would have been a brutish, beastly act. However, as previously established in his conversations with Abe, a fraternal confidant, Preston truly respects Corrina’s individuality and agency. Therefore, we can deduce that his was a selfless act. His exposure exposed the sexual vulnerability of all beings.

Translation: I took three semesters of Women’s Studies, and will write your term papers for a fee. Remember me next fall.

The thing I am worried about, however, is… umm… what if they, errr, you know… don’t like baseball. I mean, how do you make sure your kids like something you’ve planned out that they have to like? It’s a lot of pressure.

Tell ya this, if I succeed with one and not the other with this whole liking baseball thing, I’ll at least be able to record what I did differently with each and publish my findings (“Pre-Programming Your Offspring”) so all you future parents can learn from my experience.

Eh, I admit it took guts and he was defending her honor and all that, but if I was her I’d be torn between being impressed at his…gall, and wanting to move to the deep south where nobody watches baseball and wouldn’t recognise me as “The Exhibitionist Alien’s Girlfriend”. :lol:

I dunno-my interpretation of it is that Pres just whupped some major ass. I didn’t think anything of him whipping out his package until it was suggested. I just figured it was kinda like those old cartoons where someone gets their ass kicked but they fade to black and you just hear the sounds.

Honestly, though, I must not embarrass as easily as I imagine myself to. If Pillow-Thrower over there whipped out equipment at a game to defend the honor of my dirtypillows, I’d probably, in order:

1. Laugh like hell.
2. Point at the chanting people and laugh some *more*
3. Realize what he did for The Honor of My Boobs and go AWWWWWW.
4. Start scraping together bail money (Not like it would be the first time *laugh*)

Several, actually – but none (to date, anyway!) involving the revealing of testicles in defense of chesticles.

*Some*one I know got arrested at a fairly brisk pace during our first round of dating.

Brief bits of advice from the trenches:

* It is a fairly bad idea to try and cajole the cop into not giving you a speeding ticket by saying, “Aw, come on! I fucked your sister!”

* The Western Massasauga Rattlesnake is not poisonous enough to do any real damage to a healthy adult. It still is not a welcome guest in the car of the drunk who called your date a bitch.

* Having put the snake there anyway, sitting on the curb laughing so hard there are tears running down your face when the police arrive pretty much equals a confession.

* Car rental companies will not accept “Aliens did it,” in response to their query about why the car they gave you yesterday in respectable condition is now completely salt-waterlogged and will not start. (They do, however, still have to eat the loss if you buy the *good* insurance.)

And my favorite, and what probably sealed my fate as loving this guy:

* It’s probably best to just punch out the KKK guy who comes to your door recruiting (yes, you read that right…), rather than going through the elaborate ruse of telling him to come back tomorrow when your brother will also be there to hear what he has to say, then calling your 6’8″, 340 lb. and very dark-skinned black buddy from your college football days to come over and introduce himelf as your brother…and *then* punch the recruiter guy out. (He actually got kicked out of town for that one.)

You know, those were fun days, but gods am I glad he’s settled down some :lol:

Does cricket even have rules than can be understood by a human? And as for SOCCER (football involves steroid infused giants bashing into each other over an imitation pig bladder) it’s basically a bunch of Germans, Italians, and Brazilians having a run, as a team, being guided by a speckled ball.

Yeah, there’s rules but it kind of an exclusive mystery like that old messed up currency the Brits had before 1968 which made no sense to anyone not British.

5 shillings = 1 crown

I’m afraid the magic will disappear, though, as soon as I start to understand what is actually going on down there.

If you can get your hands on copies of Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine (www.andromedaspaceways.com) (I know that they are available in the US). My husband Lee and I have had a few stories published with ASIM (my latest in issue 17 was reviewed by Locus and appeared on their recommended reading list) and I personally edited Issue 11. Lee’s also had a story published in Writers of the Future (vol eighteen) and All Star Zeppelin Stories (Wheatland Press) as well as Tales of the Unanticipated (Issue 25). Our names are Lee and Lyn Battersby although up until recently I wrote by my former married name of Triffitt. Lee’s quite established here while I’m just breaking into the scene. He has a short story collection coming out with Prime Books (www.primebooks.net) in July, called The Divergence Tree.

We both edit a free online magazine called Ticonderoga Online (www.ticonderogaonline.org) Check it out

Even better than this strip is the anticipation of what Abe does when Pres gets home :D. I’m only assuming that Abe’s current blank expression is just disbelief at what he’s just witnessed. :shock:
