Romance (Part 3): A comic interlude (random comics and clips)

A lot of good speakers/preachers keep topical illustration and content files.  I have found that too complicated.  I have a single, huge, comics and illustration file.  At the beginning of each quarter I brouse it to see if there is anything useful for my upcoming talks.  It turns out that in the last few years I have collected more material on romance and relationships than any other single topic.  So I gave it its own folder.[1]  I chose a handful for the talk…and decided to put a few more up here.  Sources include NatileeDee, toothpastefordinner, xkcd, youtube, saturday morning breakfast cereal and a couple others I have forgotten.



Note: This one is not only hilarious but also really insightful.


























For some reason this one reminds me of the presidential debate last night.



[1] Second place, it turns out, is existential dread.  Apparently sex and oblivion are either particularly funny or are topics I really resonate with.  So I have created two topical sub-folders and I’ll do a post like this in a couple months that highlights the comedic material from the second one.

Love the first video and the last one would be hilarious is the creepy factor wasn't so high.:)

The "most phases of data procesing" one gets me every time.

A someone married to a guy who is interested in most phases of data processing, I don't know whether to be ashamed or feel that somehow, I hit the jackpot by finding a gem of a guy who would otherwise have been dismissed for extreme dorkiness. I really need to get me an I love my geek t-shirt. Oh wait. I have one. It says roses are #FF0000' violets are #0000FF, all my base are belong to you.
