Shoveling Snow

It is a little known fictional fact that the brain is the first thing to go numb while shoveling snow. This was revealed in an extensive study conducted while shoveling snow.

Friend of mine worked for IBM in MN, used to walk home in Dockers and a polo. Realized from his Army training in Germany that this wasn't good and stopped in a fast food joint for coffee.

BTW, did you see the thing about Google changing Captcha: now you just check a box to prove that you're not a bot?

"Shovel and think." Definitely "Shovel and think."

> what is a grue?
The grue is a sinister, lurking presence in the dark places of the earth. Its favorite diet is adventurers, but its insatiable appetite is tempered by its fear of light. No grue has ever been seen by the light of day, and few have survived its fearsome jaws to tell the tale.
Your torch has gone out. You have been sued by a grue.

I came here from Language Log, loved Officer White, and worked backwards to the first strip in 2001 (copyright 2003, as are all the 2002 strips that I noticed). Irrelevantly, your strips hit my funny bone harder and more regularly than Rob's. I think that being satisfied with just one strip a week is good for you; your last few months of strips have been to such a high standard. Please keep it up.

As an update for WOMAN READING, we have the original lyrics to the song known today as Deck the Halls. Line one is...
"Oh! how soft my fair one's bosom,"

I thought it was only The Weather Channel doing that stupid winter storm names? I haven't seen anyone else doing it.

I don't mind them naming the storms. What I mind is what THEY call a storm, is often just normal weather for around here. Instead they induce panic for anything over 3 inches. yes there are a number of times concern and extra-preparedness and caution are called for, like what got dumped on Buffalo (obviously). but overall, hello? it's winter in ny. that automatically means snow and ice. /rant (temporarily)

as for the comic, shovel and think worked :D

Agreed, pienapp1e. When I lived in Cleveland, you watched the nightly weather report; if it was going to snow overnight, you set the clock an hour earlier and went to bed. That was the extent of our storm planning. If you get hit by a blizzard like we did in 1978, then you're pretty well screwed, otherwise, not so much.

Baywolfe- exactly! be prepared ahead of time, keep emergency stash ready so there isn't the need to panic last minute, and keep an ear open. it's not like we can control blizzards.
