To Umfumdisi: Here goes...

The elongated Shakespearean set of comic strips is "Twelfth Night".

Panel 1 of the final abridged set is "The Tempest", panel 2 is "Love's Labours Lost" and panel 3 is "Julius Caesar".

How did I do?


Very good--you win 3/4 of a biscuit!
Panel 2 is not "Love's Labours Lost." Sorry.

NEXT!

Ahh, I wasn't thinking laterally enough - panel 2 is "The Taming of the Shrew".

CC 196: AN EVIL DISCUSSION! by boinky33

Aerating the soil is a good technique to speed up the process of soil improvement. It doesn’t need to be done every year because the earthworms and microbes will do the job long term.
Some people just like to get their hands dirty. Owning property is a guarantee that you'll get your hands dirty, usually on more than one day during a typical "homeowners" week.
You need to maintain your lawn, including keeping it mown at the proper height, edges trimmed occasionally, and keeping it watered when there's not enough rain.
Besides the natural elements found in the soil, which become depleted over the years, additional sources of nutrients and trace elements need to be added to a lawn's soil to keep a lawn healthy.
Unless a homeowner has a lot of experience at identifying underlying lawn problems, they will need to have a soil analysis made to determine what's in their soil and what's not.
A homeowner has a lot of things to do, especially during the summer months. Hiring out a part of that work makes sense. Hiring a professional lawn care company....well, that's a whole different story

Exactly!

I think the squirrel is the closest thing to a shrew on SC. The "female" penguinatrix probably threw you off a bit, eh?

Santa=Prospero and feetforears=Caliban--Ha.

After reviewing your comics, I think I'll add you to my favorites, too. You get the whole biscuit.

Since no one's even tried to guess my Shakespeare (bottom of page 2), here are three more with dreadfully obscure clues:

I'm going purely on hunch here (and a working knowledge of Kaufman's mastery of puns)...

Panel 1 is the "Merry Wives of Windsor" - "Merry" is represented by a Christmas tree ("Merry"), I presume?

Panel 2 is "Much Ado About Nothing" because there is nothing on the TV screen...?

Panel 3 is "Coriolanus"... 'cos it sounds like "coral" (the guy is under the sea) and "anus" (there is a fish's arse in the picture)?

As for the first Shakespearean one you posted, I'm not sure, but I'll guess "All's Well That Ends Well"

The first two are right on (though even if something is on the screen, it's still worth nothing, no doubt). As for #3, your guess is far better than the "All's Well that Ends Whale" I intended.

Sorry, kaufman, I didn't see the first one.

I think it's "A Comedy of Errors"

I realise the third one might be slightly infringing on the rules, but I hope it's still permissible.

Technically it is, but don't worry. Just don't do it again, you rascal!

Remember, if you're doing "way too much", you must use both right AND left characters in every panel. It's ok if its a prop, but it must be speaking if it is. EVERY bubble in the comic's got to be filled.

Everyone slides so far, but from now on I'm getting stricter :)

Okay, I rarely get political, moral, or wordy in my strips, but this group suddenly appeared on my radar this week...
Differences of Opinion by choadwarrior

We at priestsforlife.org object to your schools bringing in Planned Parenthood to speak to high school health classes. Furthermore, you should be aware that you are exposing yourself to litigation.
Our conduct is appropriate--parents are informed of the curriculum and the nature of guest presentations and given the opportunity to remove their kids from class without prejudicing their grades.
You don't understand...we feel Planned Parenthood perpetuates child abuse by presenting abortion as an option and by not informing parents that their children are sexually active.
Just like the Catholic Church perpetuates a never-ending cycle of abuse by concealing allegations of molestation by priests who it then transfers to other parishes where they can prey on new victims?
No, that's different --we don't kill babies--and you fail to recognize that priests are important role models for youth who are looking for emotional guidance in their adolescence.
Ooooh...Now I get it! You're afraid if all the unwanted babies aren't born, your supply of vulnerable children looking for love and acceptance from an adult, no matter how creepy, will disappear.
