It Takes a Village

It Takes a Village published on No Comments on It Takes a Village

Cats have a natural attraction to the Big Gulp.  Poor Darryl is fighting a battle he’ll never win.  With that cleared up…

Johnny’sCake is the character I most associate with my own experience.  That’s not to say Unicorn Soup is autobiographical, it’s not, though dashes of reality creep in.  So here’s a dash, perhaps a Mrs. Dash—I always play the female characters in Left 4 Dead games.  In L4D, it was all Zoey all the time.  In L4D2, as this comic depicts, Rochelle was my girl.

I love Valve’s female leads.

*Editor’s note*  The following anecdote contains hyperbole, myth and a complete disregard for the Oxford Comma.

Nearly a year ago, when my wife and I found out we were expecting our first child, she suggested that if we had a girl we might consider naming her “Zoey.”

Every nerd molecule of my being exploded in a symphony of joy… it was all I could do to restrain myself from pushing my glasses back up the bridge of my nose, thrusting my index finger into the air and shouting, “Mmmmm!  Capital idea!”

As an experienced husband I knew that my wife wouldn’t love the idea of naming our first child after a videogame heroine—even Zoey.

It wound up being a moot point as we wound up having a beautiful boy–Indiana Gandalf Janney Jr.

Real Names and Addresses

Kudos to Jim on this week’s super-secret mouse over text.  If you missed it mouse back over the comic… I’ll wait.  If you didn’t laugh or at least snicker, then I’m going to ask you to channel your inner thirteen year old and mouse over it again.

Penis is always funny.  I’ll prove it to you with the Power of Mathematics!


Try this experiment: Replace a noun in almost any cliché with “Penis.” It’ll be hilarious.  Here are a few to start with, just replace the highlighted noun with “Penis.”

“That’s no skin off my nose.”

“Whoa, let’s not put the cart before the horse.”

“The squeaky wheel gets the grease.”

“He’s got the eyes of a hawk.”

“Eat your cake and have it, too.”

“A fool and his money are soon parted.”

And finally…

“A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.”

See, you can’t argue with Math.

That’s about all the dick jokes I can summon for one day.  With that I welcome you to Unicorn Soup, tell your friends, but maybe not your Mom.



P.S.  If you’ve got a better penis cliché don’t keep it to yourself, post it in our comments!

This is very exciting for Jack and I.  It’s been a long time coming, but I hope you’ll find it worth the wait.  The site is in great shape already, but there are still tweaks to be made, and functionality to be added.  Social media functions will come in the next couple of weeks, but the RSS feed is up and running if you want to be notified of updates. Sorry, but there will be ads, as we’d like to offset our webhost’s fees.  Be sure to let us know if they are inappropriate, noisy, or otherwise distracting.

We’re planning on a weekly update for the comic, at least to start. So have a look around, take a poke at the comments or the contact tool if you’d like, and enjoy!
