Roget’s House of Mystery

Paved Paradise

Posted by Wes Decker on July 7, 2008

I apologize not for the lateness of the comic this week, but for the prerequisite level of nerdiness you must have in order to fully appreciate it. It’s a WoW reference, and for that I am sorry. It just seemed too good to pass up, what with the new California cell phone laws in place starting this month. Leaves your hands free to do other things, like texting, typing on your laptop, putting on your makeup, shaving, putting on your clothes, taking off your clothes, taking off a passenger’s clothes, or you know, driving.

Switzerland, (not the country) one of our associate writers here at RHoM and the inspiration for the character of Eugene, is going through some rough times right now. I don’t know, nor do I particularly mind, if any of you are of any particular faith or not, but please keep Switz and his family in your thoughts, prayers, etc, be they directed at Jesus, the Greek pantheon, Qui-Gon Jinn, or whomever. I’ve known Switzerland for quite a long time, and have the pleasure of calling him one of my best friends, so my thoughts are certainly with him. Hang in there, buddy.

Well, kids, that’s it for this week. I won’t see you next week, as I’ll be gone for a bit and Artista will be in charge of putting the comic up. Don’t let her burn down the house or nothin’.

Life is very short and there’s no time for fussing and fighting, my friend,


PS Playing “Margaritaville” on Rock Band is the best thing ever.
