Kitty: You know how pencils are kinda long and not sharpened when they are new? And how they are kinda short when they've been used for a while? Well, the baby boy is that new pencil. Actually I think the old pencils should have bitemarks in them. Who has a pencil without bitemarks?
at 12:03pm Jul 17
ok, but why is it a boy?
at 12:20pm Jul 17
It's funny because pencils get smaller the more they are used.
at 12:27pm Jul 17
I get the joke, I just find it appallingly unfunny.
at 12:33pm Jul 17
This comic seems to be pretty hit-and-miss. Going to bookmark and hope the future brings more hit than miss :) Love the artsy "existential" ones.

I'm torn between the existential and the obscene. I thought today's was hilarious, but I'm a big fan of people being clever. But seriously, Mike, you need to make more abortion jokes.
at 6:54am Jul 17
Abortion jokes are my bread and butter. I'll see what I can whip up for next week.
at 7:37am Jul 17
Haha, nice one
at 8:13am Jul 17
Awesome! That's soooo clever! :P

to answer the person who asked, "why is it a boy?" i think its because its like and unsharpened pencil? so like new born...un..sharpened. i think..

It's a beautiful baby boy because they all start with 'b'! It just rolls off the tongue more easily than 'beautiful baby girl' or 'beautiful baby what-the-hell-is-that', don't you think?
Actually, I kinda like the second one...

I love your comics, well most of them, but there is nothing funny about killing babies!

What's the difference between a trunk full of bowling balls and a trunk full of dead babies?
You can't use a pitchfork on the bowling balls.

It's a boy because he has lead in his . . . self.
at 11:16am Jul 18
its a boy an uncircumcised one
at 3:22am Jul 19
the fact that it's a boy is irrelevant to the funny.
He could have stopped at "oh what a beautiful baby" but decided to let you know the sex. It is not central to the punch line.
at 9:06am Jul 19
To the people commenting: why does the gender matter, and how does this have anything to do with abortion?
It's a great comic that made me laugh... why ruin it
at 3:30am Jul 23
@ Chris Ellis, tree and graphite wouldn't work cuz pencils do not become that as they get older. The grandparents would just be like erasers
at 10:44am Jul 23
@a-co Hmm, that raises many questions on the reproductive process of a pencil.

at 3:34am Dec 12
This one would be better if boys were presented as sharpened, and girls not. But still funny.
at 9:03pm Dec 19
