Burning down the house

Comic: Burning Down the House (See transcript for description)

Just doing my part to kick the office party up a notch. I’m a danger to myself and others.

Tomorrow: Life with Captain Dad.


Panel 1: I’m goofing around with a sterno burner. A coworker says, “The label said to put it out by turning it upside down.”

Panel 2: I rationalize this: “A hitherto undiscovered property of physics causes gravity to repel the flame which burns up into itself and self-combusts.” Hmmm, makes sense.

Panel 3: I turn the sterno over. The flaming gel falls onto the table.

Panel 4: I had it wrong. My coworker tells me: “Turn the lid upside down, man.” Opa!
