About this comic

With a few small word changes, I lifted this line pretty whole hog from the twitter feed of Micheal J. Nelson, famous for his role on Mystery Science Theater 3000 back in the day, and now Rifftrax. I hope he doesn’t mind…I thought it was too brilliant to go off into the twitter void without additional recognition.

I think the idea that we now have two definitions of “Literally” might have sparked his original tweet. Pretty funky addition to the dictionary I think, but who am I to say?

Anyway, enjoy! (Oh! And I put up a new Breaking Bad themed print yesterday. Check it out!)

    Actually, a kitten literally dies every time someone basically talks like that.

    Proof we live in a world of cliches and buzz phrases that prove we’re much more capable these days of parotting the “wisdom” of others than actually thinking for ourselves.

    Don’t mind that cliff sheeple, I promise there’s grass down there! Jump! Jump!

    This is Literally the best comic I have basically ever seen.

    Actually it’s just funny :p

  3. I don’t know why, but I’m finding the word “Vernacular” to be incredibly sexy! :D

    Oh the irony!

    Well, basically, I actually have that problem too. Literally. And “well”; can’t begin a comment without “well”.

    I’d like to show him a heavy dictionary, if you know what I’m literally saying.

    Writing. What I’m literally writing. As opposed to the figurative writing found in phrases such “His wife better start writing his epitaph.”

    Meanwhile, I’ll write the epitaph for poor, poor Literally.

      in the left hand bottom coenrr FILED August 8, 1961 and the new one says ACCEPTED August 8, 1961 . This was a Friday, and if one department stamped it (local registrar) and then it had to go to the State office (and they mail these documents, they do not call a taxi and ship them all off to the State office) it would have been impossible for it to be accepted on the same date.

    I would literally laugh out loud if I actually understood what you were basically saying…
