The Stove is Broken!

The Stove is Broken!

An Ambidextrous Comic

If you're wondering what kind of stove that is, it's a Pot-Belly Stove. All my knowledge of Pot-Belly Stoves, and most other stoves, are based on stories I've made up myself. Did you know that Pot-Belly Stoves are made from rain clouds and dandelion-fluff wishes? Also, you rub a Pot-Belly Stove to ward off unwanted scalpings. For more facts on these historical oddities, read the previous two sentences over again.

Well, at least he fixed the stove!

Great work Kevin!


so, what was that thing? did they find out?


It's a dryer ... of sorts.


Why does a tea kettle appear in the last frame?


I like how authoritative the shoving is. I need to shove! my clothes in my washing machine from now on.


Beau - hahah - that's pretty true!

Ian - What the?

Bryan - Oh yeah - clothes don't clean correctly unless you've put them in a submissive mindset...


I think I figured out the problem. He forgot to close the door. No wonder they looked shocked. All the water's shooting out.


I hope he remembered to use the appropriate detergent for the cold cycle.

The expressions on their faces in the last frame are priceless... PRICELESS!

I can kind of hear that sad high pitched annoying 'wahhhh' reminiscent of Lucille Ball, multiplied by 2 of course.

I never knew all of those interesting "facts" about pot belly stoves, and the endless knowledge unveiled in re-reading. I just keep learning!


Who's clothes are being shoved in there? ..they look neked to me.


You, dear sir, are simply awesome. I busted a gut laughing. Excuse me while I pick up my entrails.


So… I don't get it. How do you guys wash YOUR clothes…? A little too much accelerant in the pre-wash though I think.


I guess you can forgive their stupidity..the people look like clothes pegs...not to mention their lack of noses!


Don't get me wrong...the cartoon is great!!!


I followed the link to the (very informative) Good Time Stove Co. Awesome! Although, I must say that I am surprised that anybody could mistake a Potbelly Stove for a Cylinder Stove..I mean, really!


Man - this group is cracking me up today! Nice comments, people!


I don't know what is better, your strip, or your comment. You are one witty bastard kevin...and by that I mean: your witty and your mom pushed you out of her birth canal before she was married.


Your use of text to describe actions (shove! shove!) reminds me of when I was a boy. I used to get teased because when I'd play with my action figures I'd describe actions with words like, "walk! walk! juuuuuump! walk!" It's good to see I'm not alone. :)

The Philanthropist

Ahhhh Kevin, You've done it again you witty bastard!. (See Niff's entry above)


Good show, as usual.


Paolo - I did the same things with my action figures! I'd take Major Bludd and be like "Compliment, Compliment", and then Lady Jaye would be all "Blush, Blush"... :)

Philanthropist/JCRogers - Thanks gents!

Richard (Erd)

did they set it for hot or cold water? cause... it could just be a fast way to heat the water...


If it was a dark load, no one will notice!


Richard(erd) - Well - they didn't see the knob, so they threw on the closet liquid at hand, which was bourbon.

Rantzilla - Haha - yeah - you're right!
