The Namesake

I had a ton of fun plotting today’s comic. Hope you got a chuckle or two. :) Let your thoughts on today’s strip be known! Share ‘em in the comments below! (and tell me which country you’re reading this strip from!)


Update: Today’s ‘toon marks the 1400th PC Weenies strip, since 1998!

    Apchuck’s right, the other name would make him look like a guy that plans to disappear without a trace :)

    Greetings from Macedonia / Europe

    I too have a common name, but I’ve never thought of changing it.

    As I’ve told people for years, if I ever have to “disappear”, I’ll move to another city, shave my head, and keep my name.

    Coming to you from the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York! I’ll let you figure out which one from my handle.)
