Another good reason to change that belt on time:

It’s About Time!
I’d bet that strip was inspired by a personal experience.

Very clever … lol …

I have to admit… I don’t understand the joke of the comic. It reads like just a conversation to me.

I have to admit… I don’t understand the joke of the comic. It reads like just a conversation to me.

"When the timing belt broke it through off the car’s timing and it stalled. That event caused the timely attendance to an important business meeting to stall and the guy lost the client."

I understood the comic strip but doesn’t seem funny to me.


#7

A play on words, but not really funny. Only to those who up till then did not know what a timing belt was!!!


#8

Yeah, not hilarious, but 2 jokes: 1) it was bad timing for the belt to break, and 2) he couldn’t make his meeting on time


#9

Definitely not hilarious.


#10

Understandable but missing the rim shot at the end… :wink:

My favorite car related comic is Baldo. It’s not in every strip but Baldo works at an auto parts store and THAT hits home so often.
