On the topic of the Temporal Bishops, perhaps there is one of each?

Could you possibly post the secret message when you alert us to the latest comic? I'm operating on an iPad and can't be bothered to visit the other threads in the forum just to see what the hover text is. Thanks.

All comics are just frames of Time in locations where another comic happened to overwrite it.

You guys should look at the little nub holding back the water over the last 10-15 TF's or so. its getting eroded very fast now. Probably one only another 10-20 TF's and it will be gone.

Holy spherical-vacuum-cow... I am truly humbled, and accept the Almighty Staff of Photoshoppery by running around the house screaming like a teenage girl who just got tickets to a Justin Bieber concert.

If I had one, I would guard its glowing encrusted Pixels within the secret walls of my vagina. But since I'm just a dood, I'll toss them on the floor along with my dirty socks and underwear.

Let us hope I don't vacuum them up. If I ever vacuumed. So they should be totally cool.



Also, if you ever want to see Picard again, send me 1,000,000,000 Federation Credits by dawn tomorrow... or I'm venting him out the airlock with Wesley.

Orchestra joke: What's the difference between an onion and a viola?

Nobody cries when you chop up a viola.
(My wife played viola, so I'm permitted to say this.)

What's the difference between an orchestra and a bull?

You can tune the car.

Pay him for the pizza.


What's the difference between Eric Clapton and Les Paul?
Spoiler:
Les Paul is dead.


Love all the musician jokes! Heard most of them before, albeit with variations, but the violin section vs. car running rough was a new one. As a former viola player who is now a percussionist, I've of course heard every drummer/viola joke. Here's one more:

What did the timpanist say when she finally got a paying gig?
Spoiler:
You want fries with that?


And, while it of course is not the One True Comic, I love today's comic.

As far as Time, I no longer have any theories about what is going on. I am reminded that I must Wait for It. Though it was nice to see Cueball doing some work for a change.

And now I am off again, this time to labor in the Service of the Internal Revenue. Got to at least get that started before I coma, which will be in about zzzzzzzzzzzz.

And we're back to "are you sure Randall isn't reading the fora here?", since we've referenced 4'33" repeatedly in discussion of the One True Comic.

P.S. Thanks Elmach; I was comatose at the First Daily NewPix, and slack in my duties.

Antipiksels? But then...
Time created everything -- In the beginning, there was but nothing, and then Randall created the One True Comic, and in the process, created the Other Comic. One the anti-particle of the other, so it seems the One True Comic is composed of pieces of the Other Comic, but in fact, is the balance...
