SCENE: Grown-Up Birthday Party

BUG and TATOE are standing by a coffee table, eating, with DR. S. J.F. gets more food, then returns.

BUG: slurp slurp slurp

J.F.:  Hey, this is water!  Where's my wine?

BUG: Mmmmm! Burp.

Dr. S. : I thought it was water!

BUG weaves slowly off-screen


  1. I'm sure Bug needed a drink. Grown up parties are so boring.

    (I think of that comic every time I walk through one of the lab buildings and pass by all the little tables in the hall where people have to leave their food and drinks. Too bad scientist lunches are so totall unappetising or I'd steal them...)

    1. My mom (an anxious person, in general!) was all like "Oh no, is he okay?" I said, "Don't worry, Mom, I'd already drunk most of it." Afterwards, Dr. S took him out to play soccer. Grown-ups ARE boring.

      It's one of my favorite Far Sides in EVER.

    The Bean recommends the red.

    (He is so FAST, that child of mine.)

    1. Well, it definitely has better body. On the other hand, the white is lighter, and goes better with his pasta dinner.
