Considering the recent series of mass shootings in the US, today’s comic is highly inappropriate and offensive. Let us pause for the victims.
Can’t tell if serious or really good troll…
I vote for overly sensitive troll
It’s a NERF toy gun, which have been around for years and are STILL
STILL being sold in stores today. The troll should stop crying and get a life.
I believe he’s joking. I hope.
Troll. Must be.
Considering that comics are written, drawn, and sent to the publishers syndication up to 6 weeks in advance, this would have been done a month or more before the tragedy in the US. Sometimes it’s next to impossible to pull what could be seen as inappropiate material from all sources or places of publication.
Besides, it’s a Nerf gun.
The politically correct name is “Nerf Foam Dart Launcher” or “Nerf Blaster”.
you may find it offensive. i find it funny. thats why i live a happier life than you.
Considering the recent series of oversensitive people, today’s troll is highly ineffectual and oversensitive. Let us pause for political correctness.
Encumbered by idjits, we pressed on…
Shut up you cunt.
Bill Amend pulled a Foxrtrot Sunday strip that had Jason shooting at Paige with a toy gun, since it was going to appear in papers mere days after the shooting at the premire of “The Dark Knight Rises”
Nerf guns at work? That would be awesome!
Sadly, I’ve never worked anywhere where that would be allowed in any way, shape, or form. Besides, I could never shoot my coworkers. With foam ammo, anyway.
We used rubber bands. When there were no customers around of course. ; )
I thought about it once. Of course, while I felt it would make long closings more entertaining, I feared the store manager would find it to be grounds for my immediate termination. In hindsight, it totally would have been worth it.
I’m going into computer programming, and apparently office nerf wars are not uncommon among programming teams.
That’ll depend on your industry. From my experience, it’s more likely to happen in gaming, where playful imaginations and large groups are common. It’s not as tolerated in places developing business or industrial applications.
Well, yeah, I’m aiming at going into gaming but I’m not opposed to other types of programming if I’m having trouble getting a job in gaming.
I would gladly trade Coop his New Year’s Shift for my 9 PM – 7:30 AM New Year’s shift at a resort hotel. At least people aren’t partying at Grumbel’s… except in Teen Apparel, of course.
I was going to complain that I had to close last night and open today, but you win.
The Walking Dead reference FTW!
Don’t know why I didn’t think of this last night (must have been too tired and grumpy), buuuuuut……………
DOINK! HEAD SHOT!
Thank you for explaining it. I don’t watch the show so this was one of the few times I went huh?
Took me a minute to figure it out since I haven’t fallen into the whole ZOMBIE thing.
One of my favorite on line posters makes fun of people that claim they’ll be a tough guy/master marksmen but scream like a little girl at the sight of a little spider…………..on a computer screen.
Watching a playthrough right now of The Walking Dead. Wondering if Cooper ever played it who his favorite character would be? I have a tie between Lee and Clementine.
Is it safe to say “What didn’t Val and Coop do last night?”…
WooHoo. I hope Cooper’s tired because of all the freakishness he and Val got up to last night.
Grateful to the commenters who explained the joke – I’m hopelessly out of touch with all the vampire stuff, and haven’t had TV or cable for over 15 years…
Its zombies not vampires. You’re behind the times not having tv or cable is out, saying you don’t have a Facebook is the new yuppie thing to say.
^This is true. Not having a Facebook is the new not having a T.V.
There are graphic novels. My sister has all of them. I haven’t read them yet, but she’s promised to lend me a couple of volumes. I might even read them at work! (Just not during working time.)
Our office is in a corner location in a mall. My co-workers and I have always wanted to shoot Nerf darts at people who walk through our office instead of going around the corner.
