I fear that Larry and Jim may have been referring to ‘Mansquito,’ a 2005 SciFi-channel cinematic gem, except that there are not even any people in the movie named Jim. Anyway, this joke only works in conjunction with the previous cartoon so it goes here. If you see it in some other order then you are not reading the authentic Every 9 Minutes. Plus, Jim is the only one in this comic wearing pants.
PS – Sorry for the lateness
I carry a lot of stuff in my wallet. Jim carries the absolute minimum amount of items, so I get the business from him on a regular basis, whenever I need to remove money from it. Fortunately for me I have no more money to put in it or remove it. From. So Jim will have to find some other fault to give me the business about. Shouldn’t be that hard. I’m betting it will be my drawing ability.
Okay, so, a long time ago we were working in Larry’s front yard pushing dirt around to re-grade a low spot when someone suggested we go get more heavy bags of dirt. I slung my rake over my shoulder (like an idiot) and it clipped a Japanese Maple on the way to the ground. As some of you know (and the rest now will) Japanese Maples are beautiful trees that grow very slowly so my stupid rake slinging has always bothered me. Larry and his family don’t even live in that house any more but I got inspired to rectify my mistake because I now have an employee discount at the garden center. So there you go.
PS: Larry: Sorry if this comic sounds really, really familiar, as if it was exactly what we said the other day when I dropped off the tree.
Hey folks, second filler in one week I know, but here’s the deal: I worked 12 hours Tuesday, 10 on Wednesday, and a regular 8-hour shift today (Thursday) so time has been in sort of short supply. Also, it’s been hot and I’ve been working in it. But getting paid is better than not. Hopefully regular comics will resume on Tuesday of next week.
Needed a quick one tonight kids. Welcome to filler comic #1. In the future this is what will appear when I run out of time to comic as I did this weekend. Also, astute observers will undoubtedly notice, while there is a “Mirror, Mirror” evil, bearded Spock action figure at the scale with which “Steve” is shown “interacting,” there is no action figure made for Mr. Kyle. I made him up. It’s called artistic license. It’s in the book, you can look it up.
