the secret punchline is the unwaveringly sinister grin of george rohac

 This is basically what happened at SPX a couple of weeks ago ... as you can see, we make great effort to keep up to date. I got sick for a week, Conrad got sick for a day or two, and Yuko got sick for under 6 hours, which I think might be a record for her longest time being sick (she has biologically superior genes). I'm still getting over the last of it. 

EDIT: I must have been too tired when I posted this last night - the occupants of this comic are myself and Yuko, Conrad (Ace Programmer and Party Animal), George (STUDENT OF THE FUTURE), and cartoonists/illustrators Hope Larson (Chiggers, Gray Horses, Salamader Dream) and Bryan Lee O'Malley (Scott Pilgrim, Lost at Sea). /EDIT

I never really tried pho until about 2 years ago, but now it's one of my favorite winter foods. Nothing like hot soup in the dead of winter ... it might be the only Vietnamese dish I'm familiar with at this point. 

(Also, pedialyte is basically gatorade for infants. If you're still wondering, you can read the wikipedia article.

Pho (pronounced "fuh"

Pho (pronounced "fuh" almost) is quite a staple in Vietnamese cuisine, although I'll admit that much of the cuisine is inspired by Chinese and Thai dishes.

Or at least that's what my family tells me.

And who DIDN'T get sick?

Comment by George Rohac (not verified) Thu, 10/16/2008 - 08:28

Oh yeah. Who Didn't get sick?

That's right. The guy that didn't drink the plum juice.

HAHAHAHAHAHAha. My germaphobia wins again!

Also. Thank you for the blog title Ananth, that made me actually laugh out loud and now my roommate knows I'm a terrifying person because she asked to read the comic and the headline.

And here I thought it would be like Yuko's button....

The secret punchline is made

The secret punchline is made all the better (worse?) by the fact that I know you so well, George.

Though looking at it again...

Yuko got my likeness all wrong..

I mean I have a way more gelatinous bloblike form than that. WHAT ARE YOU DOING YUKO!?

Too embarrassed to draw a fat person that you know.. or CAN YOU NOT DRAW FAT PEOPLE?!

Also I apologize again.

Yeah, I'm just like Yuko. Longest I've been sick was with swine flu for 12 hours. No joke. I've been sick once for every two years of my life.

How did I never notice that Conrad's hair has a little emotive face on it? Observant I ain't! Now to read everything all over again and spot it doing stuff!
