JEFBOT.10_Too Much Chuckon September 19, 2007 at 12:01 pm
I had a few technical difficulties getting the strip up this time (my Internet connection slowed to a complete crawl right before I started uploading). But, although it took about 50 minutes for the file to transfer, the strip’s up now and everything seems to be fine. Let me know if it isn’t.
Well, here we are at the 10th strip! Woo-hoo!!! I feel like I should’ve planned some sort of celebration or something. Maybe given out free t-shirts or sketches? I guess that will be something to remember for #15 or #20, perhaps. Anyway, feel free to celebrate on your own – have a glass of wine or a beer maybe. At least a swig of cough syrup. In any case, if you’re feeling it, raise your glass (or plastic measuring cup) and give a shout out to ten JEFBOTs completed! Banzai!!!
Love you madly, but “alright” is not a word. 😉 Keep bringin’ it, baby! XO
Congrats! I just hit 19 this week and it’s amazing to think we’ve even got that far!
I know right? What’s with all the Chuck!!! By the way, since when is “alright” not a word? Last I checked, although not as commonly known, you may use “alright” as a variant spelling of “all right”. From the 19th century. But who cares right? It’s is an amazing strip!
thanks for the tip, bonnie! changed the spelling accordingly.
john, congrats on 19! i’ll be heading into my “teen strips” soon!!!
funnyshaffer! thanks once again for your comments! i always enjoy them. yeah, i agree on the “alright” usage but decided to err on the side of correct spelling so changed it in the strip. also, that character would be more prone to speaking with proper english, anyway.
I think this whole webseries is a conspiracy along with the word, “alright”. Great job, Jeff. And congratulations on making it to #10!
hey, michael. wow, i think this is the only time you weren’t the first poster in the comments!
“alright” is definitely a conspiracy of the consortium of compound words. i’m just glad i didn’t go with my original choice: “ah-ite.”
I loved it! I expect “chuck” will be the #1 baby-name by 2008!
Way to go on #10! I’m going to make a scrapbook for you! Is “scrapbook” a word or should it be “scrap book”?
thanks, laura. would love to see the “scrapbook” when you’re done with it – no matter how it’s spelled!
This one caught me by surprise! The art seems to be getting better… the punch line is so you! Michael is so cute.
thanks a bunch, anonymous. i’m just kind of winging all this so if i’m getting better at it – SWEEEEeeeET!!!
I don’t think it’s a conspiracy. I happen to think it’s a great name. Oh and good job on the comic!
I am right there with you on the whole “Chuck” thing. I also happened to notice that another new show has a female character that will be answering to the name of Chuck as well. Can’t remember which show. Congrats on the big 1-0!
So I thought I’d celebrate with ya by downing some cough syrup, but now I’m starting to feel the dextromethorphan… Whoa! And alright is a word alright, it’s just a non-standard word. Check out the usage notes here. Don’t mind me, I’m just geekin’ it up over here! 🙂
i see we have a chuck in our midst. the conspiracy continues…
thanks, mitch and amber! i’m thinkin’ we should celebrate the big 1-0 together with our friend the green fairy or some big doses of dextromethorphan, alri– er, all right!?
Hey Jeff, I just watched a preview of the new TV show “Pushing Daises”. The lead female characters name is Charlotte Charles, but guess what they call her for short, you got it CHUCK. I think there is something to your conspiracy theory.
Did this come from real life? Were you & Michael in a coffee shop and this happened? (just curious where you get your material) Love the art and Love the Contents! You should be in the Sundays soon!
timmy t! crap, this conspiracy goes deeper than i even imagined…
domo arigato, anonymous. although a lot of the strips come from real life occurrences and conversations (e.g., “The Angry Scarf” and “Rob Schneider”), this one did not. it’s a conversation that i could see myself having with any number of my friends, though.
And I’m sorry. I should’ve mentioned when I posted my word police comment that I had already had quite a bit of my own favorite cough syrup. 😉
Didn’t mean to come off as a hater. Believe me, I have a VHS of my seven minutes at the comedy store all on proper grammar and spelling. I kid you not. I am that sad.
Happy 10th! XO
Mantooine… they’re on Mantooine.
Crimes. They must be paid for.
Change your name to Skull Cap Wearing Chuck!
Man, I love the TV show. But there are a lot of Chucks.
is a conspiracy like when a cartoon movie comes out it automatically stays on tv as a cartoon show conspiracy i think yes!!!!
