I’m right there with Shelly right now.
So am I.
One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila, Floor.
Stay in bed Shelly! It’s safer for all of us!
I’m scared the next sneeze will engulf her whole body.
Maybe about 30 Hertz at about 140 db will teach those viruses whose boss.
You might also discover what your intestines’ resonant frequency is.
When your hair moves
And there is no wind
There is bliss
Happiness is a silent fart in a stiff breeze.
14 – 17Hz.
As soon as my other Martin Logan arrives, I’m whipping out my frequency generator and testing that 😉
i totally 2nd that ewww -.-
Someone get that woman a shot, antibiotics, vitamin c, chicken soup, and loads of tissue! Stat!
Seriously though, I’m looking forward to not knowing the nature of her mucus.
Actually, it’s not snot. It’s ectoplasm. Shelly is about to evoke a new aspect, or power. Monica sneezes right out of her bra, and hey! she has demonstrated poiting. Shelly blows snot bubbles, and … and … you know, I don’t really want to complete this line of thought. I mean, there are just some things that are too gross to contemplate.
Um, there *are* going to be other jokes this week, right? 😛
I’m hoping so… yesterday was amusing. Today, with this, my reaction was simply “ok, I’ve had enough”. … ie, at this point, I’d probably leave Shelly and her germs to fend for herself. XD
Yuck! Nothing nastier than a face full of googe.
Yes there is. A face full of someone else’s googe.
EWWWWW. *HURP* I’ve had that happen! ugh thanks for the reminder, i’m going to go throw up now XQX
Or a face full of pet sneeze. Which they usually provide about five minutes after you’ve finally fallen asleep.
I nearly snorted friggen cake up my nose reading this I was laughing so hard. Gross or not, it’s still freaking funny.
Ah, man!! Stop it!!
That’s just nasty!! XD
There is only one thing I can think while looking at this comic.
Thank god Shelly didn’t have the stomach flu.
I don’t know. Projectile vomit would probably be less gross than a snot bubble the size of her head. Unless, of course, you’re referring to a snot bubble internally coated with digested matter.
Oh, thank you for that horrible picture. I hope to gad I still have some brain bleach in the pantry …
Be grateful I left out the terms spew, blood, rupture, and ooze out of my description.
Oh gawd oh gawd oh gawd —
Gah-roas is Gah-rect! Good Gah-rief!
By now I probably would have gone for some tissues. No matter how tired/sick I am, tissues are a must in situations such as these.
Tissues? She needs to wrap her head in toilet paper.
errrrr..no… I dont normally catch colds, but when I do, they are MAJOR.. luckily they dont include bubbles!!
– and you dont want thousands of tissues all over the place, not very clean…
a standard handkerchief is simply not big enough, I usually get a big soft t-shirt, it has the capacity to absorb much more, and keep the ‘problem’ local.. 🙂
Eeegh did we really need two snot bubbles in a row?
Wait til tomorrow when we see her super trooper blow a snot bubble from each of his nostrils, simultaneously.
must be a slow news day
since no one else has said it…
Yesterday I thought “Eeeeew!”
Today I think: “Eeeeew²!”
Consider yesterdays grossness now topped. 🙂
Ewww , indeed .
BTW , bless you , Shelly .
really…are you just sharing your “cold season” with us? cause really…EWWW!
My God this girl is SICK! Quick, somebody save her from her own snot!
I hate to say it, but jokes like this usually follow a three beat. Tomorrow should be beyond all limitations of the werd GROSS!!
The only use I can imagine for these two extra-gross entries is to show which friends will stick with her through thick and (eeew) stickey…
Okay, out with it: you’re really just trying to make everyone sick ’cause misery loves company, right?
Ok, how can a comic be CONTAGIOUS? Stop it! 😛
:;goes off sneezing::
You are so right!
Next week it will be about yawning.
It is interesting. All the different reactions you’ve created with Monday’s and Tuesday’s strips. I think you were going after humor… and it is funny to me. But the humor is overridden by the empathy I feel for Shelly. That is gonna be one miserable cold. Because the third day is usually worse and this is just the first day.
Your depiction of this cold makes me feel like I can catch it right through my monitor. Excuse me while I grab the hand-sanitizer and mouthwash.
Don’t be silly, you can’t catch anything just by looking at diseased snot through the monitor. You have to actually touch the screen right there where she sneezed to get infected.
Thats what hot showers are for, Shell.
Aw c’mon, do one more sneezebubble! DO IT!
……….and Chicken Soup!
Gross but 100+ proof liquor will help.
Snot as fun as it looks.
It’s getting bigger!!! Get her antihistamine quick!!!
YES!!! I get it she’s sick!!! Get on with it!
Not to really add to all the wonderful imagery this week seems to hold in store from both the comics and comments, but….
With the proper combo of decongestant, plus some hard-fought finesse with the nose blowing, one can dry the mucus to the point where it can be totally removed from the head in one session. Blow, but not too hard, then pull with the tissue a little, blow, pull, blow, pull, etc. Without too much more detail, I managed to clear my head for most of a day during one bout of summer cold during the accidental discovery of the technique. I was still sick as all get out, but my head didn’t feel like it was full of wet cotton.
Oh, thank you.
Thank you so much.
Someday i’ll return the favour.
Just let me think of the most gross bodily functions i can imagine…
There was the day i had food poisoning so bad that the doctor gave me scripts for Lomotil and anti-nausea meds and then had me call him at home at 7PM to decide if i was still sick enough that i should call an ambulance to haul me to the Emergency Room…
I once had a case of sinus clog so bad I couldn’t breathe through my nose at all for two weeks. One day at work I *snurked* and got a trail of mucus dangling down the back of my throat that wouldn’t break off nor separate so I could spit it out. So I…
…reached back into my throat, caught the end of the dangle with my fingers and started pulling. *It wouldn’t break. I could feel it all the way up into the sinuses above my nose as a string of – something – pulled out.of my sinus cavities. I’m not sure, but I suspect it was part of the sinus lining, because it was several years before I had any more problems.
So there… 😛
I’ve done the *snurk* thing and damn near choked on a clump of snot the size of my thumb, which mercifully I expelled with a bout of coughing. No such luck with having years of clear though…
Maybe if she’s sick enough, they won’t have as much trouble navigating the health-care bureaucracy.
Nah, couldn’t happen. What was I thinking?
Right. The level of difficulty you will encounter navigating a bureaucracy is directly proportional to the severity of your problem and inversly proportional to the enthusiasm (or IQ) of the bureaucrat “assisting” you.

What’s not there Snotty?
I said ‘Snott here’, Captain.”

i recommend a half orange juice, and half vodka, over ice. take one every hour until cold is gone!
I can sympathise Shelly, it’s Fall allergy season here in TX.
We do not want a sculpture of this scene.
Until now that you mentioned it……
You know on the third day she’s gonna sneeze her boyfriend into a bubble. Either that or her snot-bubble will have it’s own little ecosystem inside it with sentient snotlings…
Ya know? I sincerely hope you’re right. I’d really rather you not forced me to admit it though…
Absolutely disgusting!! Did that have to be drawn?!? Ick!
