Late? How so? Are you…

—Late for dinner?

—Fashionably late?

—Late as in deceased? Passed on? No more? Ceased to be? Expired? Stiff? And possibly even dead?

—Late as in…holy pregnant pauses?!! Am I’m going to be a daddy?

Meanwhile, back in the present…
See the revamped version of this art and with new, funny dialogue in today’s Last Kiss Comic.

Good News?


If you want a sweet, sweet verse,

Keep a hanky in your purse.

Never let him see or guess,

You’re a horrid snotty mess!

—Your Doctor

Foolproof Fooling Around

Birth control? Sex education? Pregnancy? I have no idea why these themes have begun appearing in my recent comics. Sometimes my subconscious just gets on a roll. I’m sure it has nothing to do with my upcoming high school reunion. Nope. Not at all.

WOMAN: My favorite method of birth control? Sleeping with women!

MAN: Golly! Why didn’t I think of that?
