    Maybe I’m too old…but I just don’t get it. I really don’t with this Pokemon thing.

  2. Merbear74 says:

    Hilarious. I’m with Jackie, wtf?
    RNC in Cornhole city, where people throw pee and Trump is shitty!

  3. Yeah I’ve avoided any involvement in the Pokémon “thing”…….and I’m sure that because I’m in avoid mode, my head will not be exploding like everyone who’s Pokémon-crazy. At least I live in hope.


  4. Isn’t this the most ridiculous fad since flagpole sitting? Or goldfish swallowing? Out here, a Pokemon Go-Crazy-While-Driving playing rammed a police car broadside at 70MPH because he was busy poke-searching. Too many people need a better hobby! Love this. You have captured the essence of the madness.

    • It actually looks like something that would be fun…. but it’s TOO interactive. I am just waiting to discover I have Pokecritters hanging out on my shelf at Mecca with people coming in at 11:30 PM to catch them. I might have an “accident” with one of our stocking carts…

  5. Ally Bean says:

    Not playing Pokemon Go. Not paying much attention to the RNC. Guess I don’t really exist, do I?

  6. Blue62 says:

    Ahh, the tail end of the 90’s…I was 8 when the first generation of Pokemon swept through, though I missed the aired-once-caused-seizures-never-again episode. Good times to reminisce about.

    Haven’t picked it up yet, probably will because friends to play it with (such that it is, with the notable lack of co-operative features…or features period) but I promise not to Pokemon and drive 🙂

    • I remember watching my young nephews play the Pokemon card game back in the day, and I had no idea what in the hell they were doing. My main exposure was at work… the original iteration was still popular in 2000 when I stocked the Toys department that Christmas. I just had trouble keeping track of who were Pokemon and who were Digimon…

  7. Trisha says:

    I would say only Buster could get killed by a virtual game but, with this particular madness, he probably won’t be the only one!

    • I’m sure he hasn’t been given all of the mayhem I’ve already heard it’s caused. Didn’t the people who thought up the idea for this game not realize how lost from the world people already are when they’re on their cellphones? Hey, let’s invent a cellphone game where people HAVE to go out into the world to play it! Awesome!

  8. Bradley says:

    People are walking off cliffs, getting hit by traffic, and wrecking their cars by playing this silly game. I’m not interested.

  9. draliman says:

    Imagine the mayhem if Buster were actually playing!
    Please don’t randomly explode the Capybara 😦

  10. Piglove says:

    Hilarious! Did you read about my experience with Pigomon NO on my blog Tuesday? Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

  11. Quirky Girl says:

    My boys have been enjoying Pokemon Go lately, but fortunately, they aren’t crazy or obsessed enough to go barreling off of cliffs or into traffic to capture an elusive Pokemon. Shockingly, they must have learned a thing or two about safety… somewhere along the way. 😛

    My nephew was came down earlier this week so we went out to dinner and he was explaining the Pokemon Go thing to me.

    Me: so what do you get out of it?

    Him: You get to level up.

    Me: That’s it?

    Him: Yeah. I have some friends who are like Level 90. I’m Level 7 because I’m not really into it.

    Me: I’m Level 0 because I’m an adult.

    Which is not to say that I’m not ALL OVER the mini ‘tendo that’s coming out in November!! I thought there were only 10 pre-loaded games but come to find out there are 30. Once things turned to sensible talk at dinner, we were going down the list and both Metroid and Kid Icarus on on there. Just sayin’…..

    • Fashionably late here….

      I have not looked at the selection of games on this mini Nintendo everyone is talking about, but Metroid and Kid Icky would be locks to make the lineup since they were both A-list games to the NES’s first wave of fans. The only thing that gives me the urge to whip out the real McCoy anymore is challenging my Dad to a round of 9-ball in Side Pocket, the greatest sports game ever made for any system. I’d bet Buster’s paycheck that one isn’t on the list…

    Your Darwin award comment was spot on the money. 2016s contribution to natural selection.
    “Why are there so few people in the world Uncle ES?. Well Critters, in the old days there was a phenomenon called “Pokemon Go” . Having said that, I am at level 3 with quite a braggable bunch of Critters in my cache. We live between THREE pokestops. Also waiting on an egg to hatch which will happen the next time I go for a walk. (it counts your steps?) FEAR NOT BUSTER, you can live without a spleen, as long as you live a “pure” life. REALY funny comic! 😀

  14. Reblogged this on SERENDIPITY and commented:
    It’s JOKE DAY on WordPress! A perfect opportunity for my favorite cartoonist! Welcome again, Evil Squirrel’s Nest!

  15. It’s like a smartphone version of golf. If you want to go for a walk, just go for a walk. You can stop and admire the view (if there is one) whenever you want. Don’t spoil the walk by looking for things that aren’t there – or by hitting small balls with sticks.

    Although I do have the game downloaded, and I have caught a few pokemon, but that was ages ago and now I just can’t be bothered with it and may just uninstall.
