The Trouble With Marketplace Solutions (Weiner Style)

Detail of 'Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal' by Zach Weiner, 8 February 2015.

In the meantime, while we flail about looking for something useful to post that actually warrants attention, we might as well spend the moment whispering arcane suggestions about marketplace solutions, or more simply, point you to Zach Weiner’s latest assembly of potted humor parts and remind that sometimes the long setup is worth it. That, at least, is worth some attention.

A Thundercrap

Detail of 'Bug Martini' by Adam Huber, 5 February 2015.What? It’s a simple enough question: Given the opportunity to use the word “thundercrap”, what would you do?

That’s what I thought.

There is a bit of metahumor going on, as well. We can either note that there is, in fact, a setup strip, or we could run with the narrative and merely suggest that after an incident like that Adam Huber simply owes us “The Butt Memo Joke”, and to some degree that one can be argued to rely entirely on crapping thunder.
