Hahah so clever and funny...If only I had read this comic back when I was taking English classes...
My students just asked me what Moby Dick was about. I said "Marriage"
That is epic.
I love it!
Haha! This is EXACTLY how I passed all my classes for my English literature degree. The better you can B.S., the more your professors will celebrate you as the next living legend...of discussing largely boring books by dead people.
Oddly enough, I agree with him. Moby Dick IS about marriage!!
Upon discovering this comic via Cracked.com, I have been on a mission to read through the entire archive in order. This one is absolutely my favorite... so far. 'Basic Instructions' is one of the few comics that regularly makes me laugh out loud...or struggle not to laugh out loud if I happen to be reading it at work.
I found this via cracked.com too! And, I am also reading them all...and contemplating buying the books.
Awesome. Just awesome. <3
also started reading this from cracked.com, and sadly i little time for that website now... this comic tends to funnier lately-
Yeah, what's up with cracked lately? like the whole last week I haven't seen any articles that interested me. That's why I'm here.
I completely agree. I found this site from cracked and have been disappointed with them lately but this comic is more than occupying my time.
So that was why I got such a high mark in English...
I found this brilliant comic thanks to cracked.com, too. So, if the latter used to be even funnier in the past, it still has the merit of showing people where to find really funny stuff.
I'm in the same boat as the rest of you Cracked.com readers. Any disappointment I have for their lack of entertainment is more than made up for this strip. I love finding new online comics and going through the entire archive. However, I hate getting to the end and then having to wait for the next strip like everyone who knew about the strip before I did.
I think I'm getting old and senile. When I saw this one again on 9th March 2012, I had no recollection of it at all.
It must be all these years of marriage.
That may just be the best review/analysis/whatever of Moby Dick in the entire history of the world ever...
