Let Sleeping Dogs Lie — in Your Bed

Be honest here, you are not the king or queen of your house — the real overlord is your pup.

In this comic, Angela Liao of 20px points out that dog owners have no control over the rules of their house and especially the rules of their bed. At least you’re lucky Fluffy doesn’t ask for 800 thread-count sheets.

The 21st-Century Breakup

JerryKing_breakup_comic

Worn-out breakup lines are tried-and-true treasures: “It’s not you it’s me,” “I really need to focus on my work,” and “I’m just not ready for a serious relationship.” But now that we’re in the 21st century, it’s probably time for some digital jargon to make its way into matters of the heart.

In this Sunday comic, we learn how to end things with that not-so-perfect someone in a way that’s tailor made for the tech generation.

How Apple’s Alleged Tax Avoidance Changed Its Image

Apple Taxes Comic, Jerry King

The U.S. Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations claims that Apple didn’t pay taxes on at least $74 billion in overseas income by setting up subsidiaries in other countries.

In this Sunday comic, we see how this scandal has changed the tech giant’s image — literally. Taxes really do take a bite out of earnings.

Halloween Bingo Makes a Game Out of Cliché Costumes

It’s bound to happen this Halloween. You’ll waltz into a party, ready to be floored by creative and original costumes — but instead, you’ll be attacked by a horde of Miley Cyrus wannabes, cornered by a fleet of Grumpy Cats and stuck in a throng Walter Whites.

But lucky for you, this comic from Helen Tseng, originally published at The Bold Italic, lets you turn those annoying and repetitive costumes into a rousing Halloween game.

If your costume appears on this Bingo board, don’t fret — it’s not too late to go as your own evil twin for Halloween.
