Big Brother is Watching You

Actually, the Big Brother the missionaries are talking about is probably both watching you and watching out for you.

For the longest time, when we worried about "big brother" it was the government that we were anxious about. Today, big tech companies like Facebook and Amazon likely have more information on us than the government ever did and we're fine with it--shoot we freely offer it up. Strange times.

Today's gag comes from faithful reader Ellie W.

Occasionally, my comic strip abandons any illusion of humor and instead embraces the maudlin. Today's strip is one of those times.

Comparison is the Thief of Joy

This quote comes from Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt. I like it. It's good advice and seeing as how it comes to us from a former US President, it is wholly appropriate on the day after the 4th of July.

It is also short enough that it could fit in a tweet, meaning there's hope yet for our current president to say something profound.*

*Although I wouldn't count on it.

Chicken Heads

That would be the Church of Ozzy Ozbourne.

Worth of Soles

It's very probably that a variation of today's gag has been done by a dozen cartoonists a dozen different ways. (Like this one, for example.)

'Tis the season of missionary farewells. This is also a good time to remind you of my collection of nearly 500 missionary comic strips available on Amazon. If you're looking for a unique gift for that special Elder or Sister in your life, consider purchasing a copy of Mission Daze for him or her. And if you email me right after you make your purchase, I'll be sure to personalize the book to the person you're gifting it to.

Introducing Elder Meyer

After what seemed like an eternity, Elder Van Dyke finally gets a new companion: Elder Meyer. Of all Elder Van Dyke's companions, Elder Meyer is likely the most normal. While I like this character a lot, I soon realized that a normal companion for Elder Van Dyke presents a challenge in that the characters don't play off each other the way Elder Van Dyke and one of his more off-centered companions do. As a result, this is the companion where Elder Van Dyke's actual missionary work is most emphasized.

Empty Nesters

Only on Pioneer Trek can you create and break up a family of ten in a matter of a week. I've been a pioneer trek pa twice* and if saying good bye to your real children is as easy as your trek children, the transition to empty nesters is going to be a breeze!

*As a cartoonist, never say no to a church calling--every calling is good for at least one quality gag.
