LOL I recently displaced my tibia, fracture multiple bones in my foot, and this guy sounds like my orthopedic surgeon lol thankfully he didn’t get any of my bones!! lol
when you are born, you have 300 bones but by the time you are fully developed, you will have 206. Your orthopedic surgeon probably sold your carpals for 50 bucks a pop.
Where did the “pop” come from? I thought we were talking about bones here, not soda..
Only in the Midwest is soda called pop. They can’t just call soda, soda, so they call it pop.
What? Soda’s just the stuff you mix with syrup to *make* pop. I never understood why USAicans are so proud of always drinking plain soda. *yarg*
And here in Australia we don’t use either term!
AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE, OY OY OY.
also, its pronounced “soft drink” to the people before me
sadly in tennessee its called coke even if its made by pepsi…..
and in Texas we call all soft drinks Coke. (on occasion soda) never pop or soda pop or soft drinks or carbonated beverages.
No, it’s called beer… or beeahr. Of Fosters.
where i live we call it satan juice.
why is it called the Midwest when I live in Michigan…..I am closer to the east.
Wrong. Only in the very southwest, very northeast, and other small isolated locations do they call it soda. Pop is used throughout the entire north half of the country. It’s called “Coke” by the sub-par IQs found in the southern half of our country.
Yep, always Coke down here, doesn’t matter if it isn’t Coke.
Does that mean you call your cocaine soda?
So, I’m assuming you call it coke then?
i like how no one commented on how he said everyone in the south has “sub-par IQ’s”
In Britain, We either call it Fizz or just say the brand name.
And Soft Drinks here are just.. Non-carbonated products, Like Tea or Orange Juice, we class fizzy drinks as carbonated/Fizzy drinks
Simple. Someone dared him to give them a human bone. Since he did it, he got $50 and a soda/pop since that’s the standard terms for a dare.
BTW: We call it pop in Western PA while those in Eastern PA call it soda. Meh.
U americans are so complicated here in canada its just pop anyway why are we talking about pop,soft drinks,coke and soda anyways
And then there’s those of us who refer to them as carbonated beverages.
Or in Britain where it’s called a fizzy drink.
this is weird ! and so are you shawn !
friend you josselyn!
the premise for this strip, whether consciously or by accident, mirrors a short story by Ray Bradbury.
Our last names are Tony and Wes Bradbury
I am eating a chocolate right now. It is Cadbury!
So is your name Wes Tony, or Wes Wes Bradbury?
My first thought exactly! 😀
I fear i have bones also. Should I be concerned?
This reminds me of the Ray Bradbury story where the guy was freaked out by his bones, so then some crazy carnival man came and took them as a favor. But the bone-less guy was alive, like a jelly fish.
What, in the midwest, they call pop “Canada” ?
You fool. It’s Wes Tony, and Tony “Wes” Bradbury.
…..So he sold your bones for some big bones?
i don’t even know what we call it in the UK fizzy drinks?
WE AWKWARDLY SAY FIZZY DRINK WHILE TRYING TO THINK OF SOMETHING LESS CRAP TO SAY!
hahahaha, the only bad thing about aus, although i guess we’re more specific, usually saying the actual name of the drink. why am i discussing this so much? you know all of it?! oh well 🙂 heh…well
Nice Southern slur … maybe with your “greater” intelligence you could try learning how not to offend or make generalizations.
PS: The correct terminolgy no matter where your from would be cola. Soda, pop, and “coke” are all slang depending on location and dialect.
So any carbonated beverage is “properly” called cola, even if its flavor is grape, lemon-lime, sasparilla, birch-beer, or ginger-ale, and there is neither cola/kola flavoring nor caffeine in it?
i vote for sodapop..
I call it soda and I live in the southeast. Haven’t you learned yet that statistics are full of shit?
I’m from Oregon (aka Little Canada, California’s Canada, Washington’s Mexico, or Idaho’s Portugal) and we call it Soda. But why does it matter????? We all know what others are talking [email protected]
My name is Steve.
Everybody say, ” Hi, Steve.”
The scary thing is that many people would, actually, still trust a doctor who claimed their problem was too many bones and proposed removing them. People have an unreasonable degree of trust in doctors, who are all too often more interested in profit than the patient’s health (witness the ridiculously high numbers of unnecessary surgeries, not even counting elective plastic surgery, particularly gall bladder removals and caesarian sections) or simply incompetent (witness the average time from onset to diagnosis being measurable in years for many illnesses such as lupus despite patients seeking help from doctor after lazy or ignorant doctor). Many doctors encourage this blind trust on patients’ parts by talking down to them or engaging in other kinds of verbal bullying.
You know, this is actually an event that happened a while back. A funeral home would cut the bones out of the corpses, and then replace them with pvc tubes. They’d sell the bones to donor-companies, who’d then sell infected bones to their hospitals. Many people now got cancer through infected bone transplants.
This would also make a nice alternate comic I suddenly realise! Yay for darkness!
and when they got the transplant and got cancer and died the funeral home got the sames bones b ack and didd it agin its like a never ending loop
Isn’t that sort of like the plot of a Bones episode?
“When zhe patient woke up, his skeleton was missing… and zhe Doctor vas never heard from again!”
Who doesn’t want a fresh skeleton for their closet? Lol
