ย The return of Clocky, the screaming alarm clock.

  1. This is what popped up in my head when I saw Clocky in the background.

    1. If he wasn’t awake before, at the end he was.
      Who sleeps in ’till 11 am?

      1. Me.

        Hell, that would be early. I’ll sleep until two in the afternoon if nobody wakes me up first.

  2. You know what works better than cocaine? Going to bed at a reasonable hour. At least I assume. I’ve never tried it.

    1. When I’m getting up at 5 or earlier for work there is no reasonable hour to go to sleep. Seriously 8 pm is about the latest I have a chance for 8 hours from.

      1. and that’s only for a few weeks then it’ll shift to 6pm normally just in time for those long summer days when its light till 8/9 oclock at night.

  3. “Time to switch to cocaine”

    It was at this point in my life … that I knew … my favorite webcomic went Scorcese …

  4. Ahh yes.. Clocky. A fine little alarm clock.
    In ‘sessile. mode, it just bleeps and twitters and squeals like R2D2 on a drunken bender insulting your mother.
    In ‘active’ mode, it does so while scurrying around the floor, forcing you to *catch* the little bastard.

  5. What really bugs me is that I can’t change the snooze on my alarm. It is permanently set to 9 minutes. So I end up setting it for 6:42 because the the third times the charm

    1. Or you could buy 3 alarm clocks and disable the snooze function. Problem solved!

  6. Yeah I get you on this, I had to have three Amps to actually have it take any effect on me (unless I am REALLY tired then it takes one to get me normal and two to make me bounce off the walls)

  7. Monster is better than the Bull. 500ml cans for less than the price of the Bull for one thing.

  8. You’re at the caffeine’s soon no fun stage. It will not keep your brain alert and awake, but soon it will keep you from actually going fully asleep.

    That was the total pissoff. Now I have to stay away from it completely. Don’t worry, Monster pounders, you’ll get there quicker.

  9. Can’t stand the taste of Red Bull, prefer ‘5 Hour Energy’ shots m’self…….but WHY am I hearing a few bars of Eric Clapton as background music for the 3rd panel?

    ……she don’t lie, she don’t lie, she don’t lie…….;-)

    1. i agree redbull is terrible, though i prefer Amp or Rockstar to it. tried 5 hour energy once, only lasted half an hour for me.(i blame my metabolism)

      1. Always wondered what Seley did for a living. Couldn’t JUST be cartoons, right?

  10. *chuckles*
    Out of coincidence, I linked a Twitter-fluff to a couple of strips featuring Clocky just last week. ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. My brother set up an alarm clock for me that flashes lights in my eyes while turning on a radio set to static. I have to go to a different room to turn it off. And my brother has threatened to do more “creative” things if that doesn’t get me up. It has been working for a while.

  12. …And then I saw the “really happened” tag.

    You two are nearly immune to alcohol, caffeine, and… what else now? This is a “prepper” thing in case somebody uses chemical warfare, isn’t it…

  13. There actually was an energy drink called “Cocaine” that was taken off the shelves because of whiners complaining that it was marketed as a drug alternative

    1. You can still get it on Amazon, but seriously, nothing carbonated should contain cinnamon. It was not a fun experience.

  14. I’ll admit Redbull is one of the most overrated energy drinks out there. All it is , in the end is a ton of b vitamins, something anyone can get used to in time.

  15. Do what I did if the alarm clock has the ability to have songs downloaded into it. A friend of mine has such a clock. He has a problem getting up. He has a low tolerance to scary movies and music. He got drunk and we gained access to his alarm clock. We downloaded this song : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecGblNdZODM to it and set it as the main alarm…

  16. Iocaine powder. No scent, no taste. Deadliest poison known to man. I spent the last several years building up an immunity to it.

    Name that movie! (should be really easy)

    1. Ha! I just watched it again two nights ago! “The Princess Bride”
