JEFBOT.208_Salad Dazeon January 19, 2010 at 4:28 am
If you were wondering how Michael Cornacchia (The Cornfather’s real-life counterpart) lost over sixty pounds, one of his secrets is revealed above, in that second panel. Basically he puts mustard and hot sauce on everything. Salads, eggs, cereal (okay, maybe not cereal), you name it – mustard and hot sauce together are his toppings of choice. Needless to say, I, like jefbot, am not a fan. I’ll stay on the treadmill a half hour longer just so I can keep blue cheese or ranch on my lettuce. And my french fries.
If you’re new to this webcomic, see why jefbot doesn’t consider the matter “even” by checking out the previous strip here.
*Splut* Favorite sound effect in today’s strip! Love the facial expressions in this one! Especially JB’s *ptoO* face in the 2nd panel and CF’s face of surprise in the 2nd, and victory in the 3rd panel.
I have to agree with JB, that is so NOT even. I’ve never been puked on by anyone, (except for spit up from a baby, and even that has been years since I’ve held a baby.) and I have no idea how strong or weak of a stomach I have. So CF should consider himself lucky that JB didn’t end up making things “even” between them. 😛
Another great strip, Sir!
at first that lettuce leaf made a “pLip!” but “sPLuT!” just had a wetter sound to it, so i’m happy you dug it. 🙂
SOMEday, jefbot will have his revenge, Spanky! someday…
Mustard and hot sauce, that’s crazy. I can’t wait for Jefbot to get even.
it won’t be anytime soon, sis, but jefbot will have his revenge. 🙂
Cornfather is so selfcentered. How can he compare vomit tsunami to face with one tiny leaf to shirt.
I have a friend, Eduard, that likes hot stuff too. Pepper, Chilli, all kinds of spicy stuff mixed together and added toevery meal. From time to time I eat some of it, but not every time we eat together. Im not into it that much. And just so you have an idea just how tasty it is, when we had an BBQ one of my others friends sister was offered a bite of Eddies BBQ special. It touched her tongue, she spat it out and with *YOU ARE IDIOTS!* she ran away crying.
she ran away crying, Maryz!? ha! (sorry.) sometimes my dad makes really hot stuff, but i’ve never cried from it. that musta been some spicy bbq!!!
and yeah, there’s no comparing, as you put it, the Cornfather’s “vomit tsunami” to jefbot’s leaf ejection. and you know TC has got to have an extra yellow shirt lying around somewhere. 😉
Yeah, I was surprised too. After some time we went to look for her and found her in kitchen siting on chair next to sink with a glass of water in hand. She didnt even want to speak to us for next few weeks, believing we pulled a practical joke on her.
Hi Jeff, I am that friend of Maryz. And yeah, that BBQ marinade is really hot, but incredible.
Oh no, not even CLOSE to even, Mr. Cornfather! Mwaaahaaahaaa. >:)
nope. not close at ALL, Shanna! 😀
Go Bot XD you show him XD
heh. jefbot will show the Cornfather what “even” means one day, DJ. 🙂
I SO wanna see Jefbots face after getting that stuff into his systems… :XD
which stuff, Cemalidor? the salad? if so, i think just the one bite will all jefbot will be sampling of it. 🙂
Even one bite might be more than enough… ^^”
Oh Cornfather…. One little piece of lettuce with hot mustard flying out and hitting you in the chest will not make up for a shower of projectile vomit!!! Nice try though… Very funny Jefbot! I love the look on the Cornfather’s face in the second frame… So self-righteous!
yup. it’s gonna take a lot for the Cornfather to ever make up for that, Funnyshaffer. if it’s even possible.
I love it! Brilliant, jefbot!
I like hot sauce. I like mustard. I like red pepper.
These things do work together in moderation when you’re cooking, and I love me some home cooking. They’re make a great addition to a sauce or marinade. The key word here being moderation though. If JEFBOT is spittin’ it out chances are The Cornfather isn’t doin’ it right!
The guys are so not even it makes my face hurt. Puking on your friends constitutes a trade in the cleaning department, so sayth weekend warrior law. Example: “You threw up in my car after that party now you have to detail it.” Or “You filled my shoes with up chuck now you must dry clean them or replace them with ones of equal value.” It also gives the pukie the right to ridicule the puker to all their friends for the next month.
agreed, Foxmouse: mustard and red pepper are good in moderation, but seriously, Michael puts a lot of that stuff on everything! it’s ridiculous. but hey, i suppose it works when you’re watching your weight. 🙂
so how can the Cornfather make it up to jefbot, who doesn’t need to be cleaned or detailed? maybe laundry duty for a year? or toilet or bathtub-scrubbing duties? hmmm… i’m liking the ridicule part, though.
Hm, well usually there’s always something that needs to be cleaned, but should you find yourself so fresh and so clean clean the compensation moves into the favor department: Two favors; one to be used immediately and another to be named at a later date. *nod nod*
you wrote that his weight loss secret was revealed in the 2nd panel, and i immediately thought, “he pukes up his food? hey that’s MY weight loss secret!”
HA! i sometimes tell people Michael’s anorexic or bulimic since they instantly believe me. sadly, most people just can’t process that he just lost the weight through diet and exercise!
Diet and excercise?!? That’s crazy talk!! Unless you mean a diet of nothing but chicken broth and oranges. Because that’s how real diets work! I read it in US Weekly!
well if it’s in US Weekly then you know it’s true! i’m gonna put myself on that diet, stat! 😀
I love jefbot’s face in the second panel, the squinched up eyes just make it perfect, and how we actually get to see the leaf in flight.
thanks, emikae! this strip was originally three panels, but i expanded it to four to service that little bit of animation. glad you dug it. 🙂
This remind me of the time my bro put hot sauce in the ketchup
without telling you, IDTMRB? that’s just wrong.
So, if CF routinely eats all sorts of hot stuff, MIXED in with his digestive juices… man, ‘Bot is lucky he still has a face after being puked on.
although Michael’s been consuming this concoction for a while now, SY, the Cornfather just discovered it, so his digestive juices aren’t quite “Alien” level yet.
The Corn father really puts mustard and hot sauce on everything? Ew, that doesn’t sound delicious. I saw Daybreakers, there was people chunks everywhere it reminded me of the Corn father from the last strip.
yep, he really eats that crap, Nat. so how was Daybreakers? i was thinking about seeing that.
It was good, there was an annoying bat that would scare me when it randomly popped up but it was good. The ending reminded me of I Am Legend it was kinda like “What next?”
Wonderful explainaotn of facts available here.
one leaf off, two gallons of puke to go. XP
ha! yes, only then can this be construed as “even.”
Like hell you guys are even!!
Ouch. I can’t deal with the hotness. My stomach protest so bad sometimes it keeps me in bed for a couple of days so I stay away from the hot stuff like the devil would stay away from the cross >___<
These strips are so hilarious. Thanks for sharing your talent with the rabid fans, jef.
*glomps jefbot again*
happy to get an evil cackle out of you, Sonitan! always love that. heheh.
although my stomach can deal with the hotness, my tongue and taste buds can’t. usually too much (or too powerful!) hot sauce just kills the taste of anything i put it on, so i usually avoid it.
thanks for the compliments (and the glomps!). *glomps Sonitan back*
This is why you are the BEST webcomic artist on the internet. The strip is so funny, so well drawn, and it’s just beautiful to look at. I can’t get over how consistently good the writing and drawings are strip after strip. I’ve bee with you from day one on this journey and I can say, I’m not the only one. Your fan base has grown so much. I kinda wish you would’ve run for Congress in Massachusetts. 😉
you always have such great, ego-boosting comments, Michael, but you mentioning the consistency, writing and fan base in this one is appreciated more than usual. oh, and, today: webcomics. tomorrow: Congress!!! 😉
Oh, there is no resemblance of being even, I can see so many possibilities for revenge. Cornfather must watch his back or something UNFORTUNATE may happen! XD Probably another can-o-paint, or maybe one wet and angry ferret? EEE!!! I wanna see it! :} I miss seeing Abraxas’ evil streak…
That was probably a bad surprise, Mustard, red pepper AND hotsauce?! If someone tricked me into eating that, after puking a fountain in my face, I’d hide a wet and angry Abraxas under my new victim’s bed!
I kinda want a ferret now… 🙁
HA!!! how could CF think that that little piece of salad could make them even, oooo i bet JB is now planning an eeevil revenge (insert evil laugh)
