    It’s important always to be thankful, as good things often come in small proportions.

    You utter, utter, bastard…

  3. Ryan says:

    With all due respect. . . DAMN YOU MILLIONAIRE!
    And here I was about to drink myself stupid with Budweiser in your honor. Now what am I gonna do with this nasty stuff?

  4. Denise says:

    Christ, I nearly had a heart attack when I first read that. And here I was ready with my revolver and a case of BUDWEISER, THE KING OF BEERS.

  5. Luke says:

    Haha! DICK!

  6. Olentzero says:

    Life would indeed be pretty fucking horrible without good comics. The horror of being alive without Maakies would be somewhat less laughable…

  7. Jeff says:

    So can I come in off the ledge now and get a cold Pabst?

  8. luckydog says:

    It’s a wonderful world.

  9. Boltflash says:

    Dook dook!

  10. Eric says:

    Hmph! Just for that I’m going to go back to reading Judge Parker.

  11. Facundo says:

    The good thing is that good comics can be re-read and still be amusing. Anyway, I’ll race you to death!

  12. gruff says:

    Look out! Paul Wilson hacked your account!

    May a thousand Jerusalem crickets infest your skull for a thousand years for that particular bit of jackaasery. Now go to your room and think about what you’ve done.

  15. Daniel Prall says:

    If you didn’t pull this joke off, I may have never discovered your epic work. I have been looking for a truly great comic strip for some time now. You carry the whole classic reason why comics are made. Originality. Odddity. Unpredictable. Slightly bitter at times. That isn’t easy to pull off. Great way to spread the word and gain exposure! posted a saddened report about your retirement yesterday….

  16. Reader O'er O the Many Years says:

    Dook! Dook! Dook!

  17. themilk says:

    the alarm is sounding for all of us to take up the pen and draw some comics. I just got a great idea for drawing some people with dicks for noses just laughing at each other.

  18. themilk says:

    I hope god damned onstad is reading your blog today!

  19. Steve says:

    This is like “It’s a Wonderful Life”, except we’re seeing how life would be without Maakies, I suppose.

  20. Stephen Williamson says:

    Thank God.

    And get crackin’ on that new Billy Hazelnuts while you’re at it!

  21. Paul Wilson must be very disappointed!

  22. By which you mean the backlash was enough to make you reconsider, right?

  23. Wildcat says:

    Happy news!

    You sly dog, you. :D

  25. o0o says:

    jesus don’t SCARE me like that!

  26. John M. says:

    Really, though. That was going to break some of my bad heart. But why? Why the prank? Do you need something? Can I get you something?

    It’s like my mother-in-law who is always threatening us that she is going to die of cancer, but then she never does. Except that I would miss Maakies more.

  27. Savage says:

    Oh damn, I missed all the fun. That’s what you get when you mix vicodin and bourbon. Consider yourself kicked. Now, here’s a cookie. Be a good boy from now on, or those chocolate chips will come from a little box, instead of a nice yellow bag.

  28. Bicoid Babe says:

    Never have I been so glad to have been tricked!

  29. John M. says:

    It’s not really that much like Blondie.

  30. Todd Mecklem says:

    Not only can’t you quit, you aren’t allowed to die for a good long while either. Maakies hasta la victoria siempre.
