How Envy Works

Envy - a comic about jealousy by C-Section Comics

We want to be what others are,
we want to own what others own.
“I want her job, I want her car,
and oh dear God her shiny phone.”

The neighbor’s grass is always greener,
the neighbor’s ass is always cleaner.
His mind is keener, his girlfriend’s leaner,
and let’s not talk about his wiener.

Even leaders show their envy,
given the correct trigger:
“Nuclear button on your desk?
MY button is much bigger!”

Here’s another cartoon about our envious nature.

The Second Plague of Egypt

Frogs - The Second Plague of Egypt - Frenchman

Frogs had swarmed the land of Egypt
Jumped and went all “Ribbit! Ribbit!”
They frightened the community,
but some saw opportunity…

See, one’s plague is another’s pleasure,
one’s junk is another’s treasure.
Some feel frogs are vile as dung,
while others feel them with their tongue.

——————

Here’s a comic not so vague
about Egypt’s very first plague.

Thinking About a Low Carb Diet?

Low Carb Diet - by C-Section Comics

Thinking ’bout a low carb diet?
Bear in mind that it’s no fun.
It relies on self control
and chances are that you have none.

Thinking ’bout a low carb diet?
Bear in mind that mister stress
will shove those candies down your throat
and you’ll end up being a mess.

Thinking ’bout a low carb diet?
Bear in mind that you will weep
when your friends eat tasty pastries
while you eat dry grass like sheep.

Thinking ’bout a low carb diet?
GOOD FOR YOU! You’ll look aesthetic,
you will live long and you’ll prosper
while your friends go diabetic.

Here’s another comic about dieting, and another one about stress.

Make Me Handsome, Mister Genie

Make me handsome Mister Genie - by C-Section Comics

Hey Mister Genie,
I love your white beanie.
Please make me handsome!
Hey, don’t be a meanie!

Hey Mister Genie,
my tool’s teeny weeny.
I wish it was big,
just like a Zucchini!

Hey Mister Genie,
let’s go back in time
and kill Adolf Hitler,
or at least Mussolini.

Hey Mister Genie,
why are you grinning?
My wishes are gone?!
I had only three? Really?

Thanks to you Mister Genie
we changed history
(and my organ is bigger)
Let’s drink a Martini!

Here’s another comic about wishes. And here’s another comic about Genies.

They’re Just like Us

Just Like Us / by C-Section Comics

Robots will replace us all,
I think it’s pretty clear.
They are stronger, smarter, better,
and way more sincere.

They don’t need no food or sleep,
no paid leave or lunch breaks.
They don’t need no smoking zones,
they have what it takes
to make us obsolete one day
and to take our place.
(The truth is hard to hear but I’ll still
shove it in your face.)

Why are we not stopping this?
Because we’re humans, really.
We don’t think that far ahead,
hey, “carpe diem”, silly!

So robots will replace us
and they’ll either kill us all,
or put us in a human zoo
(I think it’s called a “mall”).

They’re just like us, but they have their limits – here’s one, in this comic about robots and AI.
