LOL. Judging by habits of my goldfish, it'd be a real coiler.

One of Tom's inventions was called the ballcock. He also invented the little known clitnub. An integral part but hard to find.

Clitnub? I seem to recall hearing about these once upon a time, but , as I recollect, the consensus was that the clitnub was just a myth.

Women are experts at finding clitnubs. ROTFL

There is technology being discussed which is beyond my grasp I’m afraid!

Unfortunately more and more people rely on the technology and less on their own brains.

Yes. I have to admit I don't get this joke. It may be because, astoundingly, I do not own a cell phone! I am a rebellious cave man who still likes "land line" phones. So all I can do is guess here... Perhaps "dropping a pin" is a colloquialism for taking a crap? Forgive me, I am not "down" with the latest cell phone lingo. Next time I am at the mall, I will tell the brothers "Yo, I am fixin' to go drop a pin now", and they will all nod in understanding.

The fact that you don't have a cell phone just bumped you up several notches in my esteem! I too am a believer in the good old fashioned land line and only use a dumb phone when out and about. you know what they say, "Smart phone, dumb human."

"Dropping a pin" is when you mark the location of your destination on your phone's map app. Then the app charts a route from your location to the pinned destination, then gives you step by step instruction on how to get there.

I know people who LITERALLY have no idea where they are most of the time or how they got there because they overly rely on their phones to navigate the world for them. This cartoon is just an extreme version of the phenomenon.

Thanks for explaining the pin drop. I don't own a cell phone either but didn't want to ask and reveal that I'm a landliner. They'll have to pry my rotary phone from my cold dead hands. :)

Also, what a lovely wall texture Francis has... Is it created with flatulents? Sort of like a faux painting niche market?...

Thanks! That's mostly Florence's doing.
