    So…what exactly does a pastrami pump do? Is it a shoe? Does it shoot pastrami? I wanna know!

    Chad’s expression and pose in panel 3 is the perfect Curious Canine Head Cock.

    Ha. I think the pastrami pump is best left to our imaginations, just like the infamous noodle incident of Calvin and Hobbes.

    Yeah Miriam, it’s just like Isaac said. Though I guess I could go into a bit more detail…. the pastrami pump is a component of the mechanical meat mulcher… :)

    Serpent, you’re right! I hadn’t thought of that!

  5. Mike M

    But I like pastrami . . . so this pump, electric motor or old fashioned pump handle?

    Mechanical meat mulcher…I am beginning to see that Mal is not the only one who thinks outside the box at this site…are you SURE you didn’t give up the mad scientist side of the comic?

  9. stephen

    Mike: Tell you the truth, I have no idea. Sometimes Mal and Chad don’t tell me things.

    Thanks Kira! Thanks Natalie!

    Old habits die hard, Miriam…

    she drops the kids off, and she goes out to party and drink, she doesn’t help out with food or anything, my bf still has to buy cetlhos for both boys. Shes the type of person she can talk to my bf and I like crap, and run all over us, take advantage of us but when we try to say something to her or get back at her she threatens to take the boys away for good, or some other threat. And my bf really thinks she’s on drugs because she use to be before he met her, and after they got a divorce she was overweight, and she suddenly dropped weight in a matter of like 2 weeks, comes here with her nose bleeding and black circles under her eyes look like she hasnt got any sleep in a year. And she’ll talk, and forget what she said, or she get words confused and start studdering. And one day a couple weeks ago, I had to go to the grocery store, and she took me.. and she had some other girl in the car and this girl also goes around the kids and shes a big pot head anyways while I was riding with them.. they did a drug deal.. stopped in a parking lot and got some pot from some man.. and they were both smoking it..So what can my boyfriend do about her? She is making his life miserable, shes not a good mother at all, she doesn’t help her kids with homework shes never home with them she gets her mom and dad watch them. she doesnt even know what their grades look like. And there is a paper that goes home with both of them everyday that needs to be signed by a parent, and she never does.. and they are getting in trouble for that. And she gets them late to school a lot just because she wants to sleep because shes got a hangover from the night before.So what can he do?
