Days of Heaven Part 3

Filed under: Bill Bickel, CIDU, comic strips, comics, Heaven, humor, I'm with stupid, Non Sequitur, t-shirts — Cidu Bill @ 12:02 am



  1. There is a beautiful joke here that made me laugh out loud a little and created a big smile inside.
    Well, not quite “here” since there’s trouble a-plenty with the caption.

    Perhaps it is salvageable if one can possibly re-parse “wardrobe miscalculation” in a way that says that a miscalculation was made (i.e. being with stupid, the primary factor in the fatal accident), and that the wardrobe is making the statement.

    (I can’t believe I’m helping Wiley. Can’t he just be permanently banned from CIDU? … and all newspapers?)

  2. I actually LIKE NON-SEQUITOR — thank you very much.

    But .. on to the cartoon. The reason this gentleman is standing before the pearly gates is because he himself did something incredibly stupid – perhaps a Darwin Award winner ? . That being the case — who ever he was with at the time of the time of his demise should have been the one to wear the t-shirt he is wearing.

  3. Or, perhaps, the person who he was standing next to didn’t take too kindly to being called “stupid”???

  4. When I saw this cartoon, I was thinking, “This would be funnier if the arrow were pointing the other way.” I think we’ve all “miscalculated” at least once in our lives, and shown up dressed too casually (or too formally) for an event. In this case, saying that St. Peter is the “stupid” one… bad move.
    Unless God is standing off-frame, and the arrow is pointing at Her. That would be worse.

  5. Further thoughts…
    Perhaps he _meant_ to have the arrow pointed at St. Peter, and the “miscalculation” was that he miscalculated which side he’d be on.

  6. Oh, right… I agree; the miscalculation was where the arrow was pointing. That’s funny.

  7. Whoever was next to him was smart enough to avoid whatever it was that ended his life. The expression says it all for me, looking down and thinking, “Guess I’m the one that’s stupid.”

  8. Just a thought…… What if he has been rejected by St. Peter and is now going to Hell – Now the shirt is pointing to Satan, who I don’t imagine is going to take too kindly to being called stupid, and is going to make this guy’s after-life a dying hell.

  9. I’m thinking it’s either Bill’s interpretation, or Sandor’s. Both ways of looking at it make it funny.

  10. I think it would’ve been better without any caption at all. Just let the reader’s imagination fill in what actually happened.

  11. I thought it would have been better without the caption, and perhaps even a bit sad. My first thought (before reading the caption) came from the fact that it is usually couples that I see with those shirts. He’s no longer with ‘stupid’ as he’s died.

    Then I read the caption and kind of shrugged and ignored that comic.

  12. Another possiblity…

    You’re stuck for eternity wearing “I’m with stupid…”, and are about to find yourself sitting next to God.

  13. I kind of figured that the rude and insulting shirt would be enough to keep him out of heaven, but I like the other interpretations better.
