Shoes
  • Bill Mcgee

    Awesome comic

  • Chris Kopcow

    It's okay because the dad is playing TIE SHOES 3: REDEMPTION. Too bad he's on "velcro" difficulty.

  • Because I'm curious, was it totally clear that those are velcro shoes in the last panel?

    • Tye

      Aye. Totally clear.

    • I thought maybe he learned some awesome shoe tying from the internets that was going to make his dad jealous. Then I felt rather silly when I saw Chris's comment earlier.

    • Cloral

      Completely clear. Never a miscommunication.

    • ActualHuman

      I thought he stabbed pieces of metal through the shoes to keep them permanetly on.

    • I tweaked the last panel wording for readers of the future! I asked a good chunk of people and the velcro-ness of those shoes wasn't totally apparent =)

  • Dan

    epic bonus comic!

    Oh Velcro… you traitorous deceiver. You filled my young mind with the false hopes of years of shoe-application-and-removal convenience, and then one day you just stopped fastening, and no matter how many fibers I pulled out of your nylon hooks, you never again provided me with reliable shoe latching qualities. My dreams of being a childhood track star… ruined.

    Honestly, my parents were gamers, and they always used gaming to teach me things… ^__^

    As long as you get the kid involved, it's a great tool and it's relatively injury free (especially compared to other sports~)

  • Kal

    you do not need to fear becoming that guy, by 2015 we will all have Nike Power Laces and Hoverboards and the Black & Decker Pizza Rehydrater

    • Saksham

      It's 2015 now none of that is available

  • Though I got the reference to the velcro before the edit, I am glad you incorporated it. It gives the kid a more patronizing tone when speaking to his dad, and enhances the comic in my opinion. Keep up the good work and you are one of my only friends on google+… I think… I am not sure I did it right.

  • Big Daddy, Dave-dog.

    J-Dog…just wait until YOU have kids!
    Don't criticize!
    You'll see!

  • Giraffe Fan

    I promise … I'll comment just as soon as I finish this level.

  • His Xbox controller is all messed up…
    it has no left thumbstick or a Y button or those little black and white buttons in the corner.

  • Parenting doesn't necessarily grow you up. New reader, (friend posted the comic about talking to your router on FB), and I've now spent the last half hour reading through half the sight. Funny stuff. 😀 Anyway, I was just going to say, I have 4 kids aged 5 and under, and we own several businesses, which I do the book-keeping to. My not yet two year old will come up to me when I'm legitimately working (unlike now) and say, "Lap?" So I pick him up and put him on my lap, and he says, "Block game?" (Minecraft). What can I do but make him happy, you know? Accounting will have to wait, I guess. 😀

    • half the site… oops. Seriously, loving your comic, though!
