Re: 1815: "Flag"

This misses a rather important feature of the original. Yes, it just isn't the same without the hand-drawn edge of the coloured bands The bar at the top from the phone, he meant.

Re: What-If 0155: "Toaster vs. Freezer"

I suspect, with no evidence backing me, that you people who don't dislike frozen then unfrozen bread are simply fast eaters. I've been subjected to frozen unfrozen bread before, and let me tell you, for about 3 seconds the bread is nice and soft and good. But once it restores back down to room tempe...

Re: 1790: "Sad"

Disclaimer: again, I'm not offended by this comic! I just think it's bad business.
