Bring in da Noyz, bring in the What the F**k?!

Argh. Thanks for the encouraging (and sometimes sarcastic) comments. I’m about a week and a half behind, I know. I figure I’ll just do two comics a day or so until I’m caught up, because, seriously, there were some strange comics these past few days. Anyway. I just got back from the first day of my new day-job and I’m tired and cranky, so this will probably be short and uncharacteristically mean-spirited. But I guess we’ll see.

This is yesterday’s comic. I initially read it in the newspaper, so I didn’t get the perplexing throwaway panel. “Blah blah blah blah blah. CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?!” Um. What? Are these lyrics, or is it just a sound check? Either way, I am saddened. That is the worst song/soundcheck I have ever heard. But then again, what can you expect from a band called “Noyz”?
Chip’s getup is absolutely ludicrous. What the fark is he wearing? A ladybug-patterned sock-cap? Apparently it brings in the lady listeners, however, as three girls inexplicably appear and show interest in these three clowns. Those girls would not be interested in those boys. Those boys are losers. Period. “Grab a seat”? Where?
Also, on a side-note, have you noticed that all the fictional bands you see in the comics or in cartoons or whatever lack a proper bass and have one guy (or girl) on the keyboard? Now, I’m very positive towards synthesizers (I love me some Depeche Mode), but where hath gone all the basses? Do they think viewers would be confused if there were two guitar-shaped instruments? Also, notice how Portly Friend’s kickdrum lacks an actual kicking mechanisim. I know H&L isn’t known for its fantastic artwork, but still…

And now, today’s comic.
Well, Hi, you have to include wages for staff, including the host/hostess, servers, cooks, busboys; and for the general maintenance of the restaurant itself. But oh, wait, that’s the logical, non-funny answer. The funny answer is… oh, wait, there’s no funny answer in this comic, either. Do they have enough money to pay the bill, or will they be sent back to wash dishes? Er, does that ever happen in real life? I would like to say “probably not”.
That’s enough for today. I need to go break up a dogfight.
