Congratulations On Your Future Success












This family tradition makes me extremely uncomfortable.

    LOL especially after eating a whole cake eh?

      Who says Chrissy ate the whole cake? I mean, Ashley didn’t have to eat the whole cake to have good luck in the election (by the way, Nicki, you never did tell us if she won), so why would Chrissy have to eat the entire “awesomeness” cake in order to be awesome? Either way, I think it worked. ;)

        Well, looking at the strip, the cake is gone. Silly me for assuming……

          Yeah, okay, you’re right. It just blows my mind that Chrissy could have baked and consumed an entire cake by herself without either getting caught, or getting sick to her stomach.

    I had to think about the shot with the black “thing” for a while – then I got it: POV from inside the oven.
    Great work, as usual!

    It does put a lot of pressure on one. Now there Computer behave yourself.

    How lucky you were to have such a positive, supportive father. I’m sure he’s always been proud of you.

    Sounds like your family is a bit like my mom that way!

    I would be all over that celebrating future successes, including awesomeness. That way if it backfired at least I had cake. They don’t give you cake for losing.

    If eating cake is a future indicator of success, count me in!

    I’ll have to try this, too—especially if I get to eat cake!

    That sort of tradition would make me extremely uncomfortable, too. Luckily you turned out pretty awesome.

    I’m in! Me!

    Beautiful work on this comic. Seriously.

    You guys really pre-celebrated life events? And if she lost everyone would have to give the cake back? erp.

    1. Nicole Smeltzer Avatar

      Yes. It’s so terrible. I can hardly eat the cake, it makes me so queasy.

    Oh, wait, I missed that she won. I guess pre-emptive cakes really do work, unless the goal is weight loss, or reversing Type 2 Diabetes or celiac disease, or a cavity-free visit to the dentist, or anything that the consumption of cake inherently thwarts.

    Okay, I also missed that Chrissy did, in fact, eat the whole awesomeness cake. My reading AND picture comprehension are both sluggish today. Did she throw up afterwards? Anyway, I’m thinking that it’s not so much the cake that did it, but the encouragement of the whole family, so the effect would be the same if the family had made, say, a non-edible banner. Eating cake alone in the dark accomplishes nothing–I was just being sarcastic before.

    Practical question, though–in another story, Chrissy couldn’t even finish an ice cream cone by herself, so how did she manage to eat an entire cake?
