    You know how ****ing high they were when they wrote “Yellow Submarine”? the Beatles were so high, they let Ringo sing a couple of tunes. They had to pry Ringo off the ceiling with a rake to record that song. — Bill Hicks

    Toon Boy need Help! but his puns really Don’t bother me.

    Toon Boy appeal: "Get back. I should have known better. I’m a loser/bad boy. I got a feeling We can work it out. All you need is love….

    Ringo: I’ll get you with Maxwell’s hammer

    I think Toon Boy hit a new low with this one.

    I love the strip and read eagerly looking for these atrocities.

    He’s really outdone himself. Only one that approaches it is “Ferret’s Elf.”

    Is Marie in the armed forces by any chance? The Marine Corps, perhaps? Then Pig could say, “We all live on a yellow sump, Marine.”

    PointyHairedEE said, about 1 hour agoRust is red.

    Not really, more orange than anything and if you really have to get down to it. How do you know there isn’t some other element making it look yellow.

    Relax and enjoy. Overthinking comics takes the fun out of it. You are the only one in control of your fun.

    For that… over thinking the comments and posting replies is silly and stupid too! Ha ha ha ha ha!
