Payback is…

Filed under: Arlo and Janis, Bill Bickel, CIDU, comic strips, comics, humor — Cidu Bill @ 2:55 am




  1. What they say about payback is that it’s a bitch, and so in Janis when woken up early by a gloating Arlo.

  2. I was looking at this and looking at this and didn’t get it… then the moment I uploaded it I realized the perfect title for the message was “Payback is a… duh!”

    But by then it was already online, so I figured it was only fair to let somebody else get the credit.

  3. Hmmm, I’m more used to the expression as “Payback is hell” so this was a real head scratcher for me. I wonder– is this a regionalism?

  6. Never heard payback is hell. I’ve heard War is Hell, but I’ve only heard Payback is a Bitch, nothing else on that one. Actually, I’ve heard LOTS of things are a bitch.

  7. I’ve heard “Life is hell, then you marry one.” Now I realize I got something mixed up.

  8. No, Brien, that’s “Life is HELEN, and then you marry one.” I think.

  9. Maybe it’s just me, But if the punchline is that Janis did something to get back at Arlo. They should made it more obvious like having his pajamas yanked up into his armpits or hit over the head with a pillow. Maybe have her get an angry look at him. and then have him walk away scared.
