Geez, gatekeeping solitude is harsh
Welcome to the misery olympics, if you are not at least a starving orphan in Africa with ingrown toenails and hemorrhoids you need not apply.
Look at this dude flexing about having legs.
Can’t have immense pain in your legs if you don’t have legs
Yeah, but can phantom pains be as bad as non-phantom pain?
Let’s find out!
I'm missing a leg that I have phantom pain with AND I have a large gash in my other leg with ingrown toenails and hemorrhoids.
I'm missing a leg that I have phantom pain with, I have a large gash in my other leg with ingrown toenails and hemorrhoids, AND my ISP is throttling my download speeds!
Uh, I once bit my tongue a bit harder than usual
Did I win?
Stop suffering so much, man.
Well I'm a brain in a jar being subjected to the most agonising simulations for all eternity!
Thanks for reading. More stupid shit on my site.
I like your stupid shit
You have good taste (in shit)
This shit tastes great!
This shit tastes like shit...why am I eating shit again?
Glenn, this is a court order. It says you can't eat shit anymore.
You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?
This is some gourmet shit
Your shit is some of my favorite shit.
Quick! Sweat on the fish.
That fish lives on the right webcomic.
That’s not a sentence
It is if you understand the context
that was quite funny
Your stupid shit is far more acceptable than mine when I leave it stuck on the fridge.
Do turtles sweat? Because my turtles sweaty 😉
I sent the bra warning one to my bandmate because they have money and may buy your merch. Wish i could too, you are doing honest work for humanity and I thank ya.
I love the font you use!
Thanks, it's actually my handwriting.
Like, your handwriting turned into a font or your legitimate handwriting every time you make a comic?
EDIT: Looking closely I see some small inconsistencies in the letters. At a glance it seemed like a font but I'm convinced it actually is individually written.
It's his legitimate handwriting!
neither. illegitimate handwriting
You’re very skilled, i’m impressed. Btw your comics are quite entertaining not gonna lie lol
Please turn it into a font. It looks great!
People are saying the fish is gatekeeping suffering, and I can see that. But my initial read of it was that the turtle was saying it knows how the fish feels when it doesn't. Like an extreme (since the fish is actually dying) version of someone saying they can relate to ADHD because they get distracted sometimes, or to OCD because they like to be organized, reducing actual disorders to a saying like "fish out of water."
Someone gets it.
Yep, both interpretations are definitely plausible and that's amazing. I think people just identify themselves with either the turtle or the fish, and then base their interpretations on that. Moreover, I think more interpretations are possible.
I identify with the fish more on this one, based on my mental disorders (yes plural). I appreciate you explaining both sides though, as both are true in life.
That's like when I triage people with headaches in er
"what is your pain or off 10 with zero being no pain and ten being hit by a bus"
"so you're saying if you got hit by a bus right now you'd be in no more pain"
ok bud. That sucks.
Better than using this scale
I once had a headache that was such agony I couldn’t get off the bathroom floor even though it repulsed me. I’d give that one a solid 8.
And that is a very good time to be using emergency medical services if unable to cope. Its very clear when someone's 8/10 is most people's 10/10 and they're there to get help. Some people have high pain tolerances and you have to be able to tell if they're rating something lower just because they feel it could be worse than it is and vice versa, higher because they can't handle lower levels of pain... It's a fun job!!!
I'd imagine if you acted like you believed him, lost your shit and started acting as though there were a real emergency he'd change his answer.
One can have extreme pain without it actually being visible/measurable in any way.
Oh definitely, and a 10/10 headache IS an emergency if it is a 10/10 headache. But if you're snapchatting your friends how "wicked" it is to be in the ER I tend to suspect false ratings may be a factor.
/r/gatekeeping in a nutshell
Turtle flip-flopped pretty quickly
In Dutch the saying actually is to feel like a fish in water, which means you feel like the situation is exactly right for you
No wonder nobody likes the Dutch
Canadians like me love the Dutch!
Jak ryba w wodzie :)
If you don't agree with this you're literally Hitler
Somehow this feels deep emotionally
Some people are just naturally funny. Good job mate.
“Then I implore you to die silent and alone”
I just yawned because of it. Damn it
This is like the exact opposite of r/choosingbeggars
Reminds me of http://www.poorlydrawnlines.com/comic/weaknesses/
Most days, I feel like a man out of water.
Is their an ichthyologist in the house? I wonder if fish actually suffocate when they're out of water like we think they do.
Most fish gills are incapable of extracting oxygen from air, and thus, yes they do actually suffocate when they are out of the water.
But there are quite a few fish who can breathe air for a short amount of time
fake news. liberal lamestream media brainwashing. scientists are just trying to secure grant money by spreading this rumor.
I hear you. Fish needing water? That's just about as believable as climate change!
Haha, that was funny.
Yep, I love a good pair of pecs.
Guess this turtle hasn’t met plastic yet
i imagine this is a hilarious way to get my money's worth out of my head where the story is that the same thing lmao
"ANSWER ME TURTLE"
I really enjoy your comics, but someone doesn’t have to be sweating in literally every single comic you make.
This sounds like something Norm MacDonald would say!
Have you posted this before? I swear I've seen it
Honestly i felt that
Marco ... Polo ... Fish out of water.
Kinda forced at the end ngl.
Fishes don't feel pain
Just because someone else is in pain doesn't mean you're suddenly not. This is bullshit
His death isn’t ofFISHal, he can have the gill to live. But if he gives up so easily...shoot, fin
The lesson is, never try.
Dw I thought your dumb puns were kinda cute
