Sentence: Charlie would often have bouts of damnesia where he would get up from what he was doing to get something and then forget what he meant to get.

Those were the moments that worried him the most.

Been there many a time. It is weird when it happens when you're driving.

silveryaspen - 2008-03-21: 02:04:00
Whysly done, you Whys ones, Jamagra and James! (big silly grin/wink)

ErWenn - 2008-03-21: 02:06:00
Now this is a concept that genuinely needs a good word.

Jamagra - 2008-03-21: 02:27:00
James! How did you know about my harvest gold toilet?!

Jamagra - 2008-03-21: 02:34:00
Ack. Sorry about the deux referring to the loo.

purpleartichokes - 2008-03-21: 05:30:00
I'm curious as to why there's a carrot in her cleavage. Perhaps she was going there to eat it?

stache - 2008-03-21: 09:08:00
looks like a band-aid to me. great toon in any event. captures the feeling to a tee. and I should know.

purpleartichokes - 2008-03-21: 12:19:00
BTW, lovely toilet jamagra, but you really should remove the band-aid/carrot before you pose for pictures with it.

silveryaspen - 2008-03-21: 13:20:00
Brings a whole new meaning to the expression carrot top!

stache - 2008-03-21: 13:57:00
On third look I think it's merely an alluring peek at the d'ecolletage. Or else her bra is showing.

doseydotes - 2008-03-21: 14:19:00
I don't think the foreign object is her decollete, stache. I think it may be a partially-developed conjoined twin. More to the point, I'm pretty sure I know why she went into the WC: She was trying to find a "W".

Jamagra - 2008-03-21: 14:22:00
The band-aided carrot in the cleavage is sort of an Easter tradition at my house. Don't ask. heh.

stache - 2008-03-21: 14:25:00
mmmmmm. band-aids and carrots.

stache - 2008-03-21: 14:26:00
mmmmmmmm. partially-developed conjoined twins.

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2008-03-21: 14:31:00
I think it's a carrot, a d'ecolletaged carrot. I thought it'd be better to use a carrot rather than a stick. Besides the stick is Jamagra's harvest gold toilet. ~ James

stache - 2008-03-21: 14:35:00
mmmmmmmm. partially-developed conjoined twins.

doseydotes - 2008-03-21: 14:43:00
See, that's the problem with this world. There are plenty of religious holidays that feature band-aided carrots, but not a single one that features partially-developed conjoined twins. If that's not descrimination, I don't know what is. I mean, who speaks for them? Besides the fully-developed twins to which they are joined, that is.

doseydotes - 2008-03-21: 14:47:00
I'VE ASKED YOU THREE TIMES!!!

doseydotes - 2008-03-21: 14:47:00
I DIDN'T MEAN TO, BUT, DANG IT, I DID!

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2008-03-21: 14:51:00
I think the conjoined twins problem is replicating itself. I will fix this, one moment please... ~ James

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2008-03-21: 15:06:00
There I fixed it. And I added safety valve which will prevent accidental repeat flushing -- oops I mean posting. ~ James

purpleartichokes - 2008-03-21: 18:45:00
Ah, sounds like a Kohler. Whooooosh! I dunno Jamagra, I think I'd remove that injured carrot before the Easter Buny comes sniffin' around. But then again...

purpleartichokes - 2008-03-21: 20:11:00
BTW James, great toon! Actually laughed out loud at this one, and the one a few days ago, but I forget what it was. Um, I took a trip to toonesia?

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2008-03-21: 22:44:00
Thanks Purple! Perhaps the carrot catered to an obsession with vegetables? ~ James

Nosila - 2008-03-21: 23:59:00
Hello? It's Easter. Of course you'd place a carrot there to ensure the Easter Bunny might bring you something...DUH! Lettuce cornsider what would turnip with a bean there, done that attitude; a higher celery;frequent leeks; a Satsquash; and pepper that with the BEETles; Italian Scallions; and I'd haqve been on Okra Winfrey!

purpleartichokes - 2008-03-23: 20:09:00
