I Love This
I Hate This

Thursday, January 28, 2010

I don't care what anyone says, JIF has more fresh roasted peanut taste than any other peanut butter brand. And it's no damn wonder: there are over 1,218 peanuts in every 28-ounce jar. Those are numbers you can take to your stomach. Tasty, tasty numbers. Man I want some PB/Ritz crackers right now.

I'm guessing you have to be an American and know something about peanut butter brands?

Here in Australia, Jif is a cleaning product.

@HelenMirrensMerkin I totally keep PB in the fridge! Although I have no rational explanation for this act. My mother did it too, so possibly I can blame it on social learning.

You all are on crack... Refrigerated peanut butter is the _best_ way to eat it.

It's not that I'm socially ignorant--just ethnocentric and indifferent to your feelings. So, Nacho Libre, zip it before we re-institute Manifest Destiny and head South.

Thank you DR. I don't know what kind of doctor you are, but I'm gonna go ahead and say you have your doctorate in being-right-all-the-time-about-peanut-butter.

This joke sails over my head, could someone please explain it. I am only half foreign though, being from Canada. I am your hat! I keep your heat in!

Here in England, Jiff is a type of concentrated lemon juice used in cooking, but mainly I use it on pancakes with sugar. That is, the thin, circular, 'our version' pancakes as opposed to the big, piled up American ones. Man, there are too many differences.....

Okay, the ignorant, unworldly American imperialist shall explain:

On the television (a device for broadcasting visual images of stationary or moving objects), a Jif peanut butter advertisment (a form of communication that typically attempts to persuade potential customers to purchase or to consume) relays a message that 'Choosy Moms choose Jif'. So, in the cartoon (a humorous or satirical drawing ) above the man is going to beat the woman because he believes her NOTto be choosy.

P.S. Same threat to the Canuck--we share the longest undefended border in the world and we can manifest North too...

You know.. I love this cartoon, but the domestic violence makes this non-funny. actually, this one is just not really funny anyway (I am American AND I choose Jif for the record). You win some, you lose some. I wish you didn't have to resort to certain offensive scenes to make something funny, especially when you fail to make them funny. Sorry, I do usually think you're very witty though, what happened to the puns?!
Q wrote at 7:10pm Jan 28
Allie, would you have liked it better if the last panel read "I bet you wouldn't choose this!"

Besides, I don't think its domestic violence. The man is actually defending himself from a defective sexbot from the future. By stating that the bot is not choosy, when it actually made a "choosy" decision, he is coming to grips with the fact that the sexbot is starting to develop an artificial sense of thought thus dooming all humanity to be slaves to the machine. This man is a hero for destroying the malfunctioning sexbot before it enslaves the human species. KUDOS to you sir for rightly beating to death that sexy robot woman saving all of us from a terrible fate. From now on I suggest sticking to whores. Dirty dirty whores that can't even afford peanut butter.

I there something deeper to this beyond "She chose Jif but she's not choosy!". Is the joke that the guy's reaction is inappropriate and he hits her? Is it "funny" just because of the violence at the end? I think it could do better than going to inexplicable smacking. Maybe he could kiss her and say "Choosy Moms choose ME!" hehe... or what if his name was "Jeff".

Maybe a better ending would have turn on the word "mom". Something like, "You said you were on the pill!" or - more positively - "Does this mean we're pregnant?!"

That guy fails at logic though. Choosy moms choose Jif does not imply non-choosy mom's don't choose Jif. (Is that the joke! :p)

Let's go Mike! You are a master of clever puns or translating human experiences into incongruent settings. ("Love the pencil baby one from a ways back" and my favorite of all time, the Robot Tattoo is just so funny on many levels and the reason I started following.)

Anyway, these observances are humbly submitted from a fan who likes to analyze things too much and who thinks that you have done much better than the last few strips. (Again, I say that respectfully and realize it's my opinion and it's not like you make these just for me!)

Some brands of PB require refrigeration. Not sure if Jif is one of them.

If it requires refrigeration then it doesn't have enough preservatives and does not deserve my consumption...

Peanut butter can be refrigerated to keep the peanut oil from separating.
I have sensitive teeth so I don't like cold things, so I just keep my jar upside down(:
JIF is THE best pb though :D :D
My dad once wrote and angry letter to them (or an angry phone call or something) though about their slogan, hence the commercial sporting the phrase:
"Choosy moms-AND DADS!-choose JIF."

It's funny because she's 'choosy' yet she chose an abusive husband. Hence, she's not choosy, goddammit!
