More Than Capable...


The Illustration Friday word this week is 'Capable', and I have to say it wasn't easy coming up with a gag for such a positive word. I had plenty of ideas for 'incapable' though. ha ha. I wonder... does that make me kinda negative?... don't answer that.

  1. Actually Ted, I was the same as you...plenty of incapable ideas not so many capable ones..then I realised that being incapable of capable ideas could easily be reversed and made me capable of capable ones...
    Funny dialogue in this cartoon...moral..don't pick on the new smelly guy!

  2. You know, we work with some skunks in our office...

    Oh Ted, please remove the word verification. It's easy. Go back to the old blogger interface. Remove it and then go back to the new one. Anonymous and spam comments are automatically filtered by blogger anyway. You can dump them all from te spam tab. Just a suggestion. Thanks.

    1. Ces, I've tried but there is no link on my dashboard 'comments' page to turn it off. I don't use the new blogger interface, never upgraded. I remember when I started my blog there was a way to turn off captcha but it's no longer there. I've tried searching the help forums but still no explanation why it isnt there any longer.

  3. You are capable of this and much more, Ted, be sure of!

    Tell these guys that they can give to the new guy, a good deodorant for when he meets his first month of work at the company.
    (I think that this new employee will become chief)

  4. Sometimes negative is more funny! So it's no surprise your ideas started there. But this is great. Somewhat Far Side-ish. A nicely done cartoon!

  5. Must be something in the air?????? Just read a FB feed about someone's cat dying to get outside because there was a brew-ha-ha among the skunks in the backyard. You are always so capable of coming up with something perfect and cheeky...I'm not even capable of fining the weekly theme any longer. I agree with Cindy...nothing wrong with negative - it is the spice of sarcasm.

  6. Haha, he looks so grumpy - maybe because he doesn't have any friends? Love the way you anthropomorphize animals in the workplace.

  7. I thrive on the negative. You stinker, you. And I mean that with the utmost respect.

    Love the cyclops cats! Ha!

  10. Oh Ted it is there. I can walk you through it. Call me and I will walk you through it. I work in Information Systems. I answer the help desk questions sometimes. Honestly, I do. I will be happy to walk you through it. I will still visit you because I have in the past and I like your humor, but I am not visiting new blogs with this gotchagoctha phrase.

  15. They say sometimes you have to raise a stink to get respect from your boss... I've tried it on myself though when dissatisfied with my hours, & it doesn't work.

    p.s. I love your twisted point of view... please don't trade me in!

  17. I always have thought skunks looked a lot like kitties. I know some people I could send this comic to when they're stepping on my feet :) Thanks for making me smile today!

    1. I think they would make a cool pet if there was a way to remove their stink bag first. On the other hand, you could really clear a room every time you showed up with your skunk kitty.

  18. oh no, I can't . I am sorry. Finely I have significant reduction of spam mails, and I believe it is due to dubbel word verification . Some time ago I have received daily up to 70 UNWANTED junk mails written in arabic ! (now it is less, today"only" 7. So I wait a bit. BTW , I have no problem with "guessing" the verification words (I have got a new glasses....:)

    Oh yes, today I wore a very nice mask

  19. WHAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! What a great story you shared with me. Oh my goodness, but it had a very sad ending. Aren't oak trees wonderful? If only the could talk. The things they have witnessed. Heritage oaks abound and some cities are lucky to be their home. The oldest oak tree in the US, I think is the Angel Oak in Johns Island in South Carolina. However, there are 4 thousand year old specimen still in Europe apty named Quercus virgiliana, in honor of Virgil. Of course! Thank you again for sharing that. I would love to receive a postcard of that oak tree! By the way, we had a skunk in our office today but he was quickly neutralized by hormonal women. Now try to draw something like that. Oh wait. You have a lot of female fans here. They may not laugh. Ssshhh! They sure are a sensitive bunch.

  20. This really cracked me up. Mind you, being an Australian, it took me a while to realise: that's a skunk. I've never smelt one. But if it smells anything like our Tasmanian devil ...
