I hope you're proud of yourself you've successful ruined fall

: One does not simply ruin a season.
Which makes this all the more impressive!

Doesn't this mean that trees all over the earth are constantly mooning us?
And are we tapping that A...spen when we harvest maple syrup?

If I play in all the fallen leaves, does that make me a poop fetishist...?
, 10 Dec 2014 11:57 pm
Great now not only do I have bird crap all over my car, I also have tree crap on it...

I'm actually kind of curious as to how scientifically accurate it is to think of fallen leaves as tree poop. It depends on how well eating works as a metaphor for photosynthesis.
, 11 Dec 2014 10:46 pm
I guess looking at it that way Gar, you could consider the air that trees exhale as being their poop...
So basically, we breath tree poop.
, 12 Dec 2014 06:13 am
Technically they're not playing in its poop, they are playing in its dead skin shavings, they are actually BREATHING its poop.

This comic was something of a... fall from grace.

@Totallybraindead: OK so we breathe air and exhale something else, and trees do the same in reverse, so I don't think either of those really count as poop; we are not breathing excrement. However, leaves take in sunlight and provide energy for the tree which is... hard to draw an analogy to. Poop would have to be something that is regularly ejected after consuming nutrients, which, again, isn't quite the same with plants. They get nutrients from the soil, so I guess you could think of leaves as tree poops, but it's just an annual cycle so I agree with the idea that leaves are more like dead skin.
@Gar: But never mind that, is Sapient Pear an allusion to Terry Pratchett's Discworld books? I love those books.
, 17 Dec 2014 02:23 am
: Absolutely. I goddamn love me some Terry Pratchett. He's my favourite author, and it's rare that I have a clear favourite *anything*.
Haven't read Dragons at Crumbling Castle yet, but I've read up to Raising Steam in the Discworld books. That there industrial revolution that's been building for more than thirty books is really getting going!
, 18 Dec 2014 05:20 pm
: If we were to abstractly look at a plant's cycle and compare it to the digestive track, the creation of oxygen by the leaves would be the restart track allowing for the origination of the blood/chlorophyll. The roots would be it's mouth taking up all the nutrients into the truck being the esophagus, the stomach being found in its leaves which feeds the plant to produce fruit.
So following through, it would be as if the branches act as both intestines and esophagus, the trunk mainly being the esophagus, the leaves acting as nose and stomach which would leave the poop being the produce made. Yummy idea that your grocery store produce section is nothing more than an arrangement of assorted plant poop. Puts a new definition to the term "Don't put that shit in your mouth"
Ps: long time no talk Gar. But don't worry... been keeping my eye on you

I would say in all technicality the flowers and fruits/seeds/nuts (pffft) are more like the reproductive organs of a tree. whether that makes it more or less disturbing I cant say.

@Lyak: Hayfever is caused by tree jizz.
, 19 Dec 2014 01:26 pm
@Lyak: your analogy is amusing to no end. Enjoy thow Saskatoon jizz berries, fine jester. Thow has rightfully earned them.
, 19 Dec 2014 03:59 pm
I remember some comic (I think it was from Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal) about how the aliens are observing the human race and they think Humans are at war with Plants because we eat their leaves and and occasionally harvest their reproductive organs and present them to potential mates (image of a man presenting a woman with pretty flowers).
, 19 Dec 2014 07:04 pm
it's more like... doorway to give the tree food. so it's more like they are stepping on it's mouth(s)
, 22 Dec 2014 02:22 pm
oh boy, those are my favourite kind of jizz berries. *dances a little jestery jig*
, 23 Dec 2014 05:11 pm
Hm... is there any date yet for when the comic will return? It took me what... I think a week to read the whole god damn archive, and I totally love the Kitties!

Missing your comics Gar

Gar must now do a winter placeholder and ruin winter too.

Hey Gar, 2 things
1. Have you ever considered going back and re-drawing the old comics in the new style? It's nice to see the evolution of your work, but I have to admit I'd love to re-read the archive in the current style.
2. You've answered this before but trawling through 1000+ comics to find the comments is a bit of a chore... I was wondering if you've considered printing the comics. I'd love to get my hands on a hardback of the, 'Things get Weird omnibus'.
