Copyright Violation Thursday.

Too Much Coffee Man.

More Too Much Coffee Man.

If you're not reading Too Much Coffee Man, you're not really reading the comics. Enjoy these before I'm legally obligated to remove them from the CDP.

Today, I was catching the beginning of Good Morning America before I left for work. They mentioned a 'new fad' called "Heat Rage." Because of the recent heat wave, I guess people are flipping out and putting their fists through windows and skulls and whatnot.

The Missus chimed in and said, "This is a new fad? People getting mad when they don't like something?" I couldn't have said it better myself.

Thank you, Good Morning America, for always tackling the important issues. I was wondering when I'd finally see the cell phone videos of Mel Gibson drunk on national television. Isn't there a war going on? Didn't anyone die today? Isn't gas $3.10 a gallon?

Friday marks the triumphant return of the Link Party, so remember to dress nice. Sound off in the comments section and tell us how you're dealing with heat rage (besides reading the CDP).

Comments:
I deal with heat rage by laying in a hammock and drinking a nice, refreshing gin and tonic. Then I stab my neighor. For the record, it's already 90 degrees here in SC, and it's not even 11:00 yet.
 
It finally cooled off in Milwaukee last night. But it's looking like the storm is passed and there will probably more heat.

I'm not dealing with it actually. After work I pretty much strip down and lay under my ceiling fan. Maybe I need an air conditioner.
 
In Mel Gibson related news... Danny Glover is still under fire from the AARP for his anti-senior dialogue in the 1987 hit film, "Lethal Weapon." Particularly, "I'm getting too old for this s***." is what has the association in an uproar. While Lethal Weapon was in theaters a full nineteen years ago, AARP representatives still talk about it as though it were yesterday.
 
Madison should hit about 90 today as well. In 10 years, when people are running around in the streets with their faces melting, they're going to wish they had listened to the scientists. Maybe Dharma has something that can reverse this?

If the AARP is truly upset about a lame joke in a late-80's Buddy Cop comedy, perhaps they're are too out of touch to be taken seriously.

Do they think you can never be 'too old?' The man had a bomb on his toilet, for God's sake!
 
Ugh, upstate SC really is a cesspool of heat. I drove home last night at around midnight and it was 87 degrees (my car has a temp readout). I drove with my windows down to save gas, but all it really made me want to do was throw the quickly rotting eggs that I had just purchased at the grocery store into the open windows of the kids' car that was blasting rap music next to me. Seeing that I am a puny white girl wearing heels, I opted to rein in my "heat rage." Instead I just directed mean thoughts at them. Stupid kids.
 
FYI, I read a study recently that revealed that using the A/C in your car makes very little difference in gas mileage, same with windows up or down. What does make a difference is driving slower and less aggressively (i.e. accelerating slowly, etc).

They busted that wide open on Mythbusters. It has something to do with the drag caused by having your windows down. I think the best thing to do to save gas is use Cruise Control as much as possible. Oh, and have someone else pay for gas.

I recommend driving drunks home, then stopping at every gas station along the way and telling them it's their turn to pay.

I have 2 people on my page from SC? That's very cool to me, for some reason.

Whenever I pull up to someone blasting offensive music, I crank the AM talk radio, roll down the windows and rock the hell out.
 
Paste, that's a great link, by the way. Very informative.
 
That's what I did to Sherry one day when it was about 1000 degrees and we had to keep the windows open in her car...I turned on the radio which just so happened to be playing the Ghostbusters theme at the time (as if that isn't strange enough...) and turned it up as loud as it would go, just to see the looks on people's faces as we were leaving school for the day. Really, they didn't react as oddly as you'd think they would.
 
We're the MTV Generation; we feel neither highs or lows.
 
I am messing around w/ cafe press right now...that thing is kind of a bizzum to use. They don't allow you many options to take control of your design...
 
Ryan, where is the picture of paul london stealing a bite of the cake?
 
CafePress is a pain, but I have to keep working at it. More accurately, you need to keep working at it so you can help me.

I'll e-mail you the photo.
 
Heat rage my ass! This is just another attempt at labeling something as a sickness so we can create help groups, manufacture so-called drugs, and funnel money to it.
Hey I have a complex too...its called "no tolerance for morons who drive like an idiot while talking on a cell phone." Now if I run these idiots who think they are so important that they have to have a phone stuck in their ear all the time off the road and into a tree, maybe I can get government help.
 
You'd think with all the "heat rage" going on that the government would turn down the temperature. They are, after all, controlling the weather. If crazy backwoods UFO conventionists say so, it must be true.
 
The government wants us to go crazy and kill each other, because they want to get the global population down to 500 million. I'm glad I went to that convention; it was sort of a sneak-peek into the rapture.

Heat Rage = Idiotic. As soon as I heard the words escape from Diane Sawyer's gaping maw, I wanted to bash her head in with a floor lamp.
 
It's not odd at all that you have 2 people from SC on your page. In addition to our official state tree being the palmetto, our official state blog is the CDP. It was one of the last things Strom Thurmond did before he passed away. Crazy old bastard.

I used to live in the upstate, and it's so much nicer up there than Columbia. Except for my ex-wife living there, anyway.
 
The CDP: The State Blog Of South Carolina.

That will be the headline for tomorrow's Link Party, you have my word as a gentleman.

Your ex-wife comment reminded me of this quote from King of the Hill:

HANK: "Leanne's first husband is working on an offshore oil rig in the gulf, and he swears he's not coming ashore until I fax him her death certificate."

Who you gunna call? GHOSTBUSTERS! (screamed by Hathery and my younger sister, while I sink into the driver's seat in embarrassment)
 
Ray Parker Jr. has nothing on Huey Lewis.
 
Yeah, that totally ruled.

Speaking of copyright infringement, CDP, we have a guy at the courts who is refusing to accept his mail from the courthouse on grounds of copyright infringement. He says that the courts are stealing his creative material by putting his name on his mail.
 
I love your clients; in that I like the stories but never want to meet any of them ever.
