Panel 1 should read “I haven’t gotten a comment in weeks.” I can’t contain my rage!

it’s too true to be funny.

You have to name this… “the law of white bunny” or something like that.

Found you via digg. Grats on that. Your comics are amazing. Keep up the good work!

@Chuck I.: “Gotten” is American – we use “got” in England ;)

Thanks for the clarification on gotten/got!

Adverbs don’t require hyphenation. ‘Carefully worded,’ not ‘carefully-worded’. What have you started?

HA! Love it! So very true!

Mauricio Pastrana on January 12th, 2010 11:40 am

Hi, I’ve translated your strip, you can find it here:

Let me know what you think, i have a PSD file i can send if you’re interested.

Likewise if you feel there’s something wrong with it i’m more than open to taking it down. I realize i never asked for permission.



brian on January 12th, 2010 12:04 pm

Thanks Mauricio! You’re more than welcome to re-post the cartoon on your own blog with the appropriate translation. I’m just so flattered that you’d go through all that trouble.

Thanks again!

Steph on January 12th, 2010 3:36 pm

So funny! Love this strip!

hi Brian- just wanted to make it an even 20 comments.

Renee D, on January 13th, 2010 10:20 am

i think this is funny. I also think “I haven’t gotten” sounds lame, even if it is right. ” “Gotten” never sounds like the right choice. I’m on your side, Bri.

dick daniels on January 13th, 2010 10:33 am

well, there goes the even-ness.

Renee D, on January 15th, 2010 11:03 am

well, sor-ree.

With regards to the got/gotten dispute, “got” is the correct past participle in British English, whereas “gotten” is strictly American. Gotten used to be the participle in British English until it was declared too archaic and switched to got. So I think we can let it slide.

As a linguist, I look at it from the standpoint of the language system. Either is correct. There’s probably a lot of scholarly research and information on the distribution of the two forms. In time, one or the other might go out of use (my guess is that it would be the longer form), or they may continue to coexist.
