$500 of gummi worms might be more than that. I got $10 of 5¢ gummi worms once and they filled a plastic grocery bag pretty respectably.
I thought I was bad at saving.
Even I’m not that bad. Well, maybe I am. There is a reason I don’t have a PS3 yet.
A PS3 is the reason I’m bad at saving money.
Costs less than paying for XBOX Live
but still, i think its worth the x-box live, x-box hace a much better feeling, and according to me, the games are better as well (Halo)
Games being a plural, yet Halo is it? I mean, most people would at least say “Halo and Gears of War” but really? Halo? Of all the great games in the world, you had to pick the one that is only hyped up as it is because of the sole fact that it’s an exclusive? For shame…
Personally, I just like Bethesda’s games better on the Xbox. I also love Nazi Zombies. Halo’s fun, though I mainly play for the campaign. Crazy Taxi’s on XBLA, as well as Minecraft and Castle Crashers. There’s a lot of games for the Xbox that I play that I wouldn’t play on the PS3. Dance Central with the Kinect is awesome.
I only ever play the PS3 at a friend’s house, and that’s to play Skyrim. I’m already level 37 and I’ve yet to do anything but side and mini quests.
XBL is only $50 a year… If that’s expensive to you, you need to get your ass off welfare and into a job.
Not everybody is physically able to get a job you know, I’m perminantly unemployed because of my disabilities. The only reason I have all three consoles is because I bugger all else to spend my DLA on.
XBL is more reliable than PSN, in PAL regions at least, our PSN is shit. We haven’t even got popular games like Symphony of the Night here for example, after what the three years they’ve been on American PSN.
I have nothing against Xbox except for its company and payment for Xbox Live (Microsoft is just too damn greedy) I did want a Xbox at first but did NOT want to pay for Xbox Live.
US PSN is shit, too.
Disabilities?…I could probably think of something…
I finally found something for blind people and narcaleptics…
the former: telemarketers. the latter: mattress salesmen.
Coming from someone whose mommy probably buys him all his shit.
Highly intelligent counter-statement is highly intelligent.
Haha, American medical bills.
i c wut u did thar.
Well hey, a stomach pump and medication is expensive. I wouldn’t want taxes to have to pay for those.
As someone who lives in a country with so called “free healthcare” ( = tax paid healthcare), I can assure that not ALL operations are free. If you are intentionally reckless with your body or just want a few cuts for beauty, then you have to take it out if your own wallet :|
However, it’s nice to know that even if I get cancer and loose my job, I will still be able to get my healthcare despite being from a working-class family. In those situations free healthcare is almost like a religious experience of the good kind.
I remember reading an account once of a woman who was born with a genetic fluke that gave her one A-cup breast and one D-cup. She wanted to get them rounded out to an even B, but the government told her healthcare would only pay for the enlargement, not the reduction.
Nice to know the kinda guys we got runnin’ this country.
…I’m unsure whether this is funny or not…
I am shure, and its hilarious.
Nah, shure sounds good. You’re suddenly Sean Connery.
Plastic surgeon has the same opinion – why would you want to make them SMALLER?
Large breasts can cause back problems, also, getting the rong kind of attention from men is rather annoying.
Then the problem is with the spine, not the boobs… obviously.
And women will ALWAYS get the wrong kind of attention from men, irrespective of what they look like.
In fact, it is in the nature of women to explicitly dress to get attention from one person, then whine about getting attention from all the other people too… much as it is in the nature of men to just be utter douchebags in the presence of females…
I’ve seen comments from you on a half-dozen comics by now, and all you ever seem to do is complain, be negative about the world, and nitpick at other people’s comments. Try thinking something positive once in a while, dude, it’ll do you a world of good.
Finally somebody in the government with their priorities straight!
Oh stop it. It was a joke.
Probably because it’s cheaper to stuff in silicone than it is to re-adjust tissue.
It’s easier to add than to subtract. And, from a medical standpoint, it is a lot cheaper.
Not easier to fix the possible back problems that could come from carrying those jugs around. I knew a woman who had to get a breast reduction because she was getting back spasms from the weight of them, the government said they would only pay for the reduction on the side the muscle problems were on.
That sounds pretty reasonable to me.
To be fair, she could have just done a lot of situps. This would improve her core strength and reduce or remove any back problems. Seriously though.
Ah yeeeaaaah…. I dunno if “do a lot of situps” can fix all your back problems. You’d think a doctor would recommend that before invasive, body-altering surgery.
Well, doctors get paid more for surgery then for good advice as far as I’m aware. But really a good core body strength will fix most of these problems, same for fat people- lose the weight or gain muscle in the right area to carry the crap around..*shrug*
Family doctors aren’t the one’s doing the surgery, so they aren’t getting any extra money telling a person they think they should talk to someone about going under the knife. And since the government is the one who gets to pick up the bill anyway, you’d think they’d be more inclined to send a person to a physiotherapist before a surgeon. Easy enough to say “Oh well you can just do this and it will fix all of your problems” when you aren’t the person nor do you know any of their circumstances.
Wanted to reply to post below this one, but there was no reply button.
Many family doctors actually do get money for referring patients to other doctors/medical treatments.
I don’t know if that’s the case when it’s a government operated healthcare system. Especially when recommending a person to a physiotherapist is keeping the money in the system but recommending them to a cosmetic surgeon is letting money/resources out, so to speak. The government is not overly fond of private practice type place from what I understand, that’s why you don’t really see them much outside of Alberta. But it’s not something I know enough about to really debate, I’m just inclined to believe that a doctor who knows you and is an active member of the community you live in is probably inclined to recommend the least invasive, painful, and life-altering solution to your problem.
Not that it is any of my business… but I figure if a person is gonna get their body surgically altered, it should be for the purpose of making them a cyborg… like a proper cyborg (not a pacemaker or somesuch nonsense). Otherwise they just end up a human with fake bits… or somesuch.
My capacity for caring about this is very limited though.
This makes me sad, but it also makes me laugh.
Finally a health care program we can all agree on. Everyone. Gets. Breast. Enhancements!
Want your own pair to play with do you?
At least in America, health insurance doesn’t pay for medications or operations that are needed for medical reasons but are also birth control, either. (I’ve been to the emergency room twice for complications that are evened out by most brands of bc.)
I was okay with this (“that’s life”) until I heard that insurance WILL cover Viagra, Cialis, etc, because they treat erectile dysfunction, aka a *health problem*.
I live in canada. It’s true that the healthcare doesn’t cover everything. Most aesthetics are left to your own wallet. I can say that my younger sibling did at one point swallow some pills that were accidentally left where children can reach them, and our government covered the stomach pump. When my friends have broken bones doing their crazy skateboard stuff the government covered the mending of that. Drug overdose is also covered free of charge.
If there’s a situation where they won’t cover you because of being reckless with your own body, I don’t think eating an excess of gummi worms would be enough to qualify. Though I also don’t think they’d pull out the full blown stomach pump. Probably just give you a prescription to settle your stomach, or maybe induce vomiting.
I’m imagining forced vomiting of $500 dollars of partially digested gummy worms.
The colors. The texture. The slightly off acidic smell mixed with sugars. The sheer amount of it coming out of a human being, and a skinny guy no less.
I am both highly amused and terribly, irrevocably frightened.
How did a man dressed like Austin Powers eating $500 worth of gummi worms create a conversation on breast enlargement and healthcare?
I must say, A crushed velvet suit and a good pair of winkle-pickers is money well spent.
Well said, sir. And While I’m on the topic, Not ALL women look good with giant breasts. on some, they look downright stupid, and overly slutty. You should be glad with what you have, and, in the case of the overly mismatched melons, be glad we have surgery to fix that type of thing. Our American government sucks, we need to get rid of ALL the politicians and replace them with people who can actually DO something of value, and quit spending our money. 500$ of gummi worms is most definitely more than that, and family doctors nowadays suck at their jobs, as they are either too stupid, or don’t care about who they are treating. And finally, crushed velvet with matching winkle-pickers is THE outfit. Everyone should wear it. That is all.
Not to be overly pedantic, but why does having big boobs make someone look slutty? That’s… rather old fashioned. You should read some of the personal reports/articles written by ladies with giant breasts and how hurtful that kind of assumption is.
I think you generalized that he said big boobs make all women look slutty, when he said some. And it’s true. A woman with a small frame, but huge boobs will look sluttier -if- they dress in anything that’s form fitting. When the boobs are nearly a third of their bodymass, it’s extremely hard for a small framed woman to not have them on display. That can convey sluttiness, intended or not, because our society has taught us that any woman who willingly puts her breasts out on display for any reason is a woman of questionable morals.
Human beings are a completely hypocritical bunch. We shout from the mountaintops to not judge a book by a cover, but the majority of the time we have a firm opinion of a person based on looks alone, because our society has taught us that first impression is vitally important. And unless you’re blind, your first impression of a person is largely based on what you can see.
I didn’t say he said all women with big boobs look slutty. However, you provided a good explanation as to why it happens. I was trying to point out that it’s an unfair way to view women, and can lead to the “she was asking for it” line of thought. Not saying that’s how he thinks, or that everyone thinks that way or anything, but that it’s a slippery slope.
Agreed that it is unfair for men to view women in such a fashion.
But they do.
And berating one person for saying it, or even trying to keep people from saying it as a group, is a bit like trying to hide a cow that’s wandered into your dining room at teat time by throwing a rug over it. No one is going to believe for one instant that it isn’t there, and all you’ve really done is insult both your intelligence and that of your guests by pretending its gone.
Saying that people shouldn’t bother to chastise men who act like assholes towards women because of their body types because “whatever that’s just the way people are” is about as counterproductive it gets.
… Another random comment insertion by me… years after the conversation ended.
All this political correctness stuff is just plain silly. People have pretty much always been dicks to each other. No avoiding it. And a few hurt feelings aren’t such a big deal.
Slapping down a taboo at best or legalities at worst against such things isn’t going to stop people being dicks to each other… they’re just gonna be dicks about being dicks. The whole mentality is just going meta.
Used to be racial slurs and the like were common. Then they became taboo. And what takes their place? People calling each other racist. How long will it take before THAT becomes taboo, and the whole thing just gets more and more recursive?
Can’t we all just accept that people are douchebags… and move on? Nobody’s feelings are sacred.
… And they wonder why I’m a misanthrope?
Hehe, teat time.
His parents give him eerily prophetic warnings… Or maybe he’s just one o’ those rebellious types.
My mom always told me never to run into a brick wall at 120 miles an hour during a police chase. I might be in some trouble.
Yup, you’re screwed. Betcha wish they told you to never win the lottery now, don’t you?
Soooo… Jared is my brother?
That’s pretty much my thinking face as well.
Haha this one is hilarious, something I’d do if I received 500 dollars a week.
I would so eat $500 of Gummi worms.
Wait…is that $US or $AU?
US, now. CANADIAN DOLLARS ARE NO LONGER USED HERE.
Well he IS an intern. Lucky to get paid at all in a lot of cases.
considering that it seems that he probably gets room (and maybe board) at the agency, that’s a pretty decent paycheck.
Cripes, if that is what he takes home after taxes Jarid makes more then I make in week. And I spent a lot of money going to college to get “a read job”. LOL, I wish I could have his. I’d also like Mr. Fish too.
I’m a high school drop out and I was taking home a little over $600 a week…and now I quit that job to start going to college to someday make a good salary, your comment does not help my motivation!! :(
Wth? I’ve done schooling and I’ve had a lot of job experience and I’ve never taken home more than 500 a week. :|
Have you commented on Art of Trolling? I do believe I saw you on there.
But anyway, my dad worked at the State Hospital, and when he worked on like, Thanksgiving or something, he made around 500 dollars.
That is all.
Yes, I frequent that site among others. >.>
And buuuh. D:
But you gotta remember how much of that probably goes to feeding Mr. Fish and I mean just imagine how much soap you would need to wash him! That and I am sure he has to put a good amount into the jar of words he cannot say in the workplace!
Well, if Jared didn’t have to have his stomach pumped, he will have AMAZING nails in 10 months. (Gelatin improves cartilage.)
Nails aren’t made of cartilage though…
Fair enough, but gelatin does improve hair. It’ll be all silky smooth, Sans-Garnier.
It improves hair and nails because it’s pretty much straight protein.
Delicious, gummy, protein.
So thats why my hair is so shiny, must be those giant gummy snakes I had.
No, nurses CANNOT perscribe Vicodin.
I know from experience.
I just remembered that sign being posted all over the last walk-in clinic I went to.
it’s all about the oxy now. get with the times.
I loved seeing that, and until this post i thought i was the only one to notice it
Umm… Nails are made of Keratin, not Cartilage (-_-‘)
Derp. Well, it still really helps.
$500 a week is damn good for an internship. Can I get a job there?
Correction, that’s $500 a week AND you get to hang out with the commander
Commander’s services must be pretty expensive, if he can pay Jared 500$ a week for pretty nothing. Wish I had such a job.
They’re probably government funded. Goverment doesn’t want those macho guys runnin’ around and murdering all the Average Joes.
Commander is able to purchase a large robot pet that must have cost about $3000+ for his kids without a second thought. I’m pretty sure he’s making bank.
That’s what I made when I was an intern.
Yeah but did you hang around something equally Badass to the Commander? This fine gent is obviously getting overpaid. I’d PAY to be around the Commander.
Where the hell did you work to make $500 a week as an intern? I’m an intern and I make some free lunches and a handshake.
Big Soul Productions doing character designs and background layouts for a cartoon called By the Rapids. Before that I was making even better money picking up trash on the highway, vacuuming dead bugs out of air filters, washing cars, and planting flowers for Manitoba Hydro.
$500 a week plus a place to stay (since so far it doesn’t show that he has his own place, so I’m guessing that he bumps at the office) sounds like a pretty darn amazing deal for an internship that doesn’t require any specific skill. I would be happy to have his job.
He gets paid $500 a week (which is more than I make) to pick up manly guys’ jock straps and occasionally hug them? If Jared was real I would already have shanked him.
And here I thought all of his salary returns to the Epic Jar.
NURSES CANNOT PRESCRIBE VICODIN
xD Wow, he really is bad at saving money. Suit looks good though :D
Only if you could really buy one.
He should really just build himself a PC.
That would require him to have SOME useful skils beyond “Monster Pit Fighting Manager” and “Sort Mail”.
The title would’ve been punnier as “You bought this on yourself”, but I’m not the commander ’round here, so yeah.
However, I don’t blame him for buying that suit. Suits are always worth getting if you have the money.
To be fair, he is really pulling off that suit. His 60s body shape really does it justice.
Kinda hard to pass up a suit like that.
OH MY BUDDHA! I’M JARED WITH A WII!
He’s even worse than I am at saving money XD
…I’d so totally do the same if given half the chance…
That’s so funny, a garbage bag full of gummi bears is what I’m asking my wife for Christmas.
This is a good idea.
I second this. SANTA, I HAVE SOME ADDITIONS TO MAKE, BETWEEN GRAVITY GUN AND GYROSCOPIC GUILLOTINE!
Where does the commander get funding for his work? The government?
I imagine so.
The Man is supporting The Men.
You mean that Man from Half-Life?
The Man from half-life was creepy as hell!
There is a TV in the game that has the Man on it (not talking or moving) just standing there and THE TV’S NOT EVEN PLUGGED IN. Nothing to do with the story, it’s just there.
He’s the Commander, no one would deny him funding. Plus he has stacks and stacks of future cash.
You mean spacefuture cash.
$500 well worth spent in the name of gummi deliciousness.
Excellent Comic, God I wish that I could go to the store and just buy a pile of gummies again…I miss those days *looks at gas prices* You’d think they’d be better in the province that produces the stuff…Anyways again excellent comic that hits a little too close to home for me XD
This situation right here? This is me with money. Only replace gummi worms with gourmet jelly beans and the Austin Powers suit with a statue of Nick Fury, and you know why everybody I love is getting Safeway gift cards this xmas…
So at the cheapest I could find with a quick Google, $500 worth of gummi worms would be about 314.5lbs. (That’s about as many as three Askals)
So how many Askals can we fit in an industrial trash bag?…
Do they taste that much better when they’ve been in a trash bag?
Gotta test that some time in the near future…
“Next Week on CSI:Manliness: Three clones found stuffed in a trash bag.”
About one and one half, I think. But Askals dislike being halved :(
this…this just made me think of my best friend xD he’s horrible about saving money (so am i but thats besides the point) and he loves gummies xD
Aaand now I wish I had Austin Power’s suit…aah bollocks…ಠ╭╮ಠ
Ladies and Gentlemen! I bring you… The World’s Largest Gummy Worm.
…that looks obscenely delicious.
…It’s magically horrendous!
seems radically extreme
How much does it cost?!
Yes. I’ll pay ANYTHING.
It’d be fun to smack someone with that.
Ahh monday, you reamins my favorite internet day of the week…
and THAT is alotta gummies… Om nom nom :D
This seems somewhat autobiographical.
Those small pesky gummi worms are not manly enough!
EAT THESE: http://www.vat19.com/dvds/worlds-largest-gummy-worm.cfm
So, um, Jared’s my brother in the first panel, The Commander is my dad in the second, I’m the guy holding the gauze on his head in the waiting room, and I absolutely love the mannequin pose in panel 3 and the thinking face in panel 7.
P.S. Thanks for having The Commander answer my question about why Jared’s still hanging about. Besides having the most incredible job in the world of course.
I can relate to the bag of candy thing Coelasquid, a few years back I used to go to this youth club under this church every friday night.
they had a snack bar that sold so called ‘penny sweets’ (british).
I used to buy the entire tupperware tubs they displayed them in and royally piss off everyone there as I ate them all without feeling ill in the slightest.
$500 a week? Where do I send my CV?
Auggghghghg my housemate used to buy 5-lb bags of Sour Patch Kids all the time last year. Soooo much sugar. I’d vomit just looking at that many gummi worms. D:
ok. This strip drips of the awesomesauce. But you know this. I tell you this repeatedly. My one tiny insignificant little two cents to this the latest in “ooooooooooh shiney”? A Big Daddy figurine in the fishtank. Gots to have one. If you’ve seen the teaser trailers for the new Bioshock, you’ll understand why. Besides, Commander strikes me as the sort of guy that likes to slap a stealth job on the baseball bat of irony before he goes to town on a person.
I’m pretty sure that he can only afford the suit and all that because he rides Mr. Fish everywhere. Gas is expensive, and so is car insurance and all that. I wonder what other normal things he get’s out of paying because of his job and Mr. Fish…
Oh, yeah, I wanted to ask you Coelasquid – is Jared polish or something? He has a polish surname, one of the most popular ones even, and I was wondering what was the story ’bout that. You know, since I’m polish also, it would be awesome to have a “nerd guy with a huge Gyarados” on my country’s side…
He’s probably part polish. A lot of refugees from Poland and eastern Europe fled to America during World War II.
But he’s Kanto…nese…
Why would you do that?
I thought it was hilarious.
It’s not even a joke, what do you call people from Kanto? Kantonians?
I believe Kanto is actually a region of Japan. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kant%C5%8D_region
Been unable to find a Johto though.
I think they’re all supposed to be AU versions of Japan, but I figure if they can have blue haired stripper cops they can have WASPy suburbanites.
For the games, up until 4th Gen, yes. Orre is Arizona. (And while it doesn’t exist yet at the time of the comic, Unova is New York Metro.)
The descriptions in the Trading Card Game suggest that it’s Holon region is somewhere in Europe–Arcanine is described as first being discovered in England.
“Johto is geographically similar to the Kansai and western Tōkai regions of Japan.”
While the location itself might not exist, it is definitely based off locations in Japan itself.
Probably somewhere along the lines, I picked the name because it sounds extravagantly normal.
Ale Jared to prawie że kompletny idiota przecież D:
If each Gummi Worm cost $0.05 then Jared has a total of 10000 Gummi Worms and if each Gummi Worm is about 1 ounce then 10000 Gummi Worms would be about 625 Lb. so that means Jared ate his wight 5 times in Gummi Worms.
I’m just guessing that Jared weighs about 125 Lb.
I dunno, Jared’s pretty tall, like around 6’1″ or 2″. He was originally gonna be taller than the Commander, but all these vidja guys are like 6’4″+ so Commander got bumped up for the sake of composition more than anything. And because I kept drawing him like a full head taller than Jonesy out of habit.
Andrew Jackson was 6’1″ and weighed 95 pounds at death. So, you never know.
Jared isn’t… dying, though. When in doubt I check out Cockeyed’s Height/Weight Chart.
That chart is pretty awesome.
He would have looked shockingly tall, back then.
Well i was using my friend Joe ,yes that is his name, how has the same build as Jared except Joe is 6’5″ and wighs 135 Lb Joe is also in near perfect health and is only 19 years old.
Gummy worms don’t weigh that much.
Yeah I thought about that after I posted that and actually weighed a $0.05 Gummi Worm it was about .38 ounces don’t know if I hit the jackpot in Gummi Worms or not but I now have physical evidence and that would be about 237 Lb of Gummi Worms
More like 10 grams, so 100,000 grams, so closer to 220.something lbs. I’m 5’4, average build, and weigh like 125 lbs, so I imagine Jared weighs more than me being as tall as he is. That said, he probably ate about 120% of his weight in gummy worms.
That is still a significant percentage.
The unclassified psychic power needed to bond with Monsters gives one a shockingly fast metabolism, especially in Jared’s case, having to contol something as big as Mr. Fish.
Jared is missing out on those sweet $300 Xbox 360 S models, who cares about his old RRoD prone version.
Absolutely untrue. Nothing stated that the new Xbox 360’s couldn’t get the RROD.
Nonsense, the new XBox 360s are physically incapable of getting the RROD. They took out the red LEDs in the ring, now it changes the center power indicator red instead. So the Slims do a Red Dot of Death.
wow, winklepicker is actually a real style of shoe,… I don’t know what to say..I’m flabbergasted
They’re what all the mod kids wear.
I will say, it SO sounds like something Bevis and/or Butthead would say.
Heh,heh, heheh. ‘Winklepicker’.
Look me RIGHT in the monitor and tell me you wouldn’t at least START your way down that delicious bag of goodies. If they are the sour ones, I’d keep going until I exploded like in that old Yoshi’s Island commercial.
Goddamn I can’t resist them gummy worms. I JUST CAN’T.
I.. I don’t even LIKE gummy-ANYTHING. XD I’d probably buy.. Hmm.. Tootsie pops. They are the best candy in the world. All of them orange-flavoured. For $500 I’d get about 3000, give or take 100 or so. (16-ish cents each last I recall?)
I would have thought that all the money would have went to the epic jar… or maybe better yet use the money he put in the epic jar to pay to get his xbox back. It looked to be quite a bit of money in that thing.
That second to last panel NEEDS to be a reaction picture. Can you get us a bigger version?
Also, thanks for creating this strip. Now everytime I feel I’m wasting my hard-saved money, I can just glance at this strip and smile.
You know what? Im going to buy about 50 $ of gummy bears, and give it to charity…
Just imagine their faces.
$500 worth of gummis seems like a sound investment to me
I thought I was bad at saving O___O
When I had a job, I used to buy one or two (maybe 6) games every two weeks o3o
I could really use $500 for rent…
i would totally spend 500 bucks on a crushed velvet austin powers suit, totallt worth it!!!
i find it quite odd that this is the exact thing my boyfriend would do… and the fact he looks/has the same hair and is named Jared too… weird
2000 bucks a month for internship???? Without any degree or prior work experience????
What kind of decadent first world society do you live in!!!!
It’s 12.50 an hour, that’s a little over minimum wage. I used to make better than that picking up trash on the highway and vaccuuming dead bugs out of grates.
Ahh man, I really need to move to Canada. Minimum wage was raised this year to 7.24 an hour. @.@
It varies province to province, but Ontario’s is $10.25
I work my ass off as a baker and get $9.45 an hour. And I only get one day a week, so it goes without saying that I’m looking for other work.
Is it safe to assume living costs are pretty high compared to most places then or is Canda THE place where I should be moving to in the near future? Heck is there even a site to compare such things between countries?
Gonna practice the accent just in case.
It’s really expensive to find a decent place to live in Toronto, I’m currently paying $75/month more for a huge, above-ground place with a pool in Burbank than I was for a cramped, mold infested leaky basement in Toronto.
Ahh, I guess that’s the difference. I was informed that Alberta’s minimum wage is $15 because it’s so rich in natural resources; I shudder to imagine their cost of living.
I’m making 13.25 and clearing just over $400/ week. I clearly got into the wrong line of work if you ere making more than that as an intern.
40 hours a week at $12.50 an hour gets you $500. Taxes are gonna cut into that, obviously, but the point of the strip is he’s spending money as fast as he makes it.
Yes, yes, please let me explain it some more, that will make it funnier.
This is completely unrelated to this thread. I looked at your URL and couldn’t help but wonder
Scott T. Hong
I googled winklepickers. Mind = blown.
His mother much have been very wise to be so specific and still be right.
Grocery bag filled with gummi worms…I remember that, they were the sour ones! I promised myself I would never eat that many gummi worms again…we ate too much candy when we had sleepovers!
Yyyyeah, I’m a pretty impulsive shopper myself. Which is bad when you’re trying to save up money for your tuition.
I think Coelasquid might be really bad at making punchlines, hurrhurrhurr
No accounting for taste, I guess.
I don’t know why, but Jared’s face, and more the point his mouth, in panel three reminds me all too much of Beaton’s “Shetland Pony”.
He’s basically making a :I face.
Except that won’t look right in this font… Imagine it’s a font that gives capital ‘i’s the crossbar things.
One of the best comics so far.
Say Coelasquid, whatcha doing now that Ugly Americans is on hiatus?
Hint hint – make 2 comics a week
I’m in California working on a new cartoon for MTV.
I hope Jared never goes home, he’s my favorite character.
Okay, I know I’m late to the game but $500 A WEEK?! A WEEK?! Dude! Can I be the secretary?!
Naw, that’s why there’s a truck in the background of $500 gummy worm panel – the rest is in there, for home delivery.
oh come on
I ONLY GET 300 HUNDRED A WEEK FOR LIFE GAURD
he should be grateful
See, this is why your mother has to save your money in the Pokemon games. xD
I’m usually broke from stocking up on Hyper Potions unless I let her save my money. Only bad thing is, she keeps buying me frickin’ BERRIES with MY hard-earned money! Berries that aren’t even USEFUL in this version!
Well, to be fair, Jared looks pretty handsome on that suit.
I like how Jared is wearing a purple shirt with grapes on it :P
I might be stupid and confusing US prices with UK prices but isn’t $500 enough to buy a new 360? Or am I even stupider than I thought and missing the point of the joke entirely?
It’s more than enough, but he keeps spending the money on impulse purchases.
LMAO ya shame the rest of us don’t have those reason for not saving money, way more fun his way.
this is my brother:P
A bag 6 gummy worms costs $1.50 were I’m from,
And these aren’t big gummy worms, they’re regular size.
WTF dudes. Is Americas economy so bad its affecting The Bahamas too.
Bleeeeep~ $500 a week? XD
So if you bought $10 worth of 5¢ gummie’s. 5¢ X 20 gummie’s = 100¢ 100¢=$1.00
20 gummie’s X $10 = 200 gummie’s.
$10 X 10 = $100
200 gummie’s X 10 = 2,000 gummie’s = $100
$100 X 5 = $500
2,000 gummie’s X 5 = 10,000 gummie’s = $500
My stars and garters, HTF is Jared even functioning after eating all that!?!?!?!?!? My cousin tried to set a record by eating 1,000 gumie’s but passed out from sugar rush after the first few hundred.
