UPDATE: #JEFFWECAN…

February 21st, 2015

Big (cough) Tobacco (cough, cough, hack) responds to John and Jeff: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is a parody show, known for getting a laugh through exaggeration and presenting partial views in the name of humor. The segment includes many mischaracterizations of our company, including our approach to marketing and regulation, which have been […]

THIS ONE IS FOR ALL MY STUDENTS…

February 19th, 2015

Lynn Johnston writes: Writing about the trials and tribulations of being a student brought memories flooding back. Here, I relived the anxiety of writing exams. Like everyone else, I hated them. There is an art to studying, which I didn’t learn until high school, and that is: there will always be questions asked about things […]

PASSION IS A LOAD OF FETID DINGO’S KIDNEYS…

February 17th, 2015

Dilbert creator Scott Adams has a chapter in his book “How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big” titled “Passion is Bullshit.” “When a successful person is interviewed, and you say, ‘What was the secret to your success?’ what they can’t say, because society won’t let them, is: ‘I was smarter, I worked […]

THE NEW HOMEGROWN EVIL…

February 10th, 2015

Keef may be making a very unfunny point here. Given that the measles virus is more prevalent in other parts of the world, what would it take to transport infected children into the United States and visit every theme park and other places where unvaccinated people might gather?

THIS IS REALLY BAAAD…

February 6th, 2015

There was a story running around Ohio University in the early ’80s about a RTV major from up north tasked with reading the farm report one morning. He did well, so the tale goes, until he came to the current prices for sheep where he read: and “Eee Wees are up twenty-five cents.” The story […]

December 31st, 2014

With gracious thanks to Florence Reece and Peter Seeger… Nearly five months have passed since Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown and while the vital conversation in our nation surrounding the events of 9 August continues, I have decided to no longer keep this internal thread stuck to the top of Have Coffee Will […]

GIVE THANKS…

November 27th, 2014

Lynn Johnston wrote: Having gone on several Medical Missions to Honduras and Peru, I am well aware of how little some people have and how much we in North America take for granted. When my kids said they were “starving,” I was grateful that they had no idea what “starving” meant. How can I obsess […]

October 12th, 2014

Via Keith “Keef” Knight. I have always remembered that as a writer I am constantly working on variations of a single plot: something changed. There are many permutations on this, my favorite being either, a stranger comes to the village (think Something Wicked This Way Comes) or someone leaves the village (think Moby Dick). Everything […]

APPROVAL VS. LEGALITY…

October 10th, 2014

The comic notes a curious inversion between the timing of legal and popular opinion trends for interracial marriage vs. same-sex marriage. In the 11 years since Massachusetts first legalized same-sex marriage, at no point have there been more people living in states where it’s legal than there are people who support its legality (although this […]
