Nickelback Baby

Ursula learns a bit about how her brothers came to be and draws her own conclusions.
I mean, yes, that’s one way to look at it, sure.


Duke might be the little brother but he has the bigger mouth.

True story: Nickelback was the house band at the bar my brother worked at in the late ’90s, prior to them getting signed and getting famous.

Comic text

In case of broken image links or accessibility issues with today’s cartoon, here’s the gist of the comic:

Ursula, Duke, and Adam are all sitting on the sofa. Duke and Adam are playing video games while Ursula sulks with her arms crossed. She says “I have to write a dumb essay about my family.” Duke replies “Sucks to be you” and Adam quips “Says the Nickelback baby.” Duke retorts “I may have been conceived at an early Nickelback bar gig, but at least I’m not a homecoming game accident.”

Offended at least somewhat, Adam sneers “Pfft! At least my mom was a cheerleader, not a Cheers waitress.” Without missing a beat, Duke says “Dad says she was good at doing the splits, yes.”

Adam growls; Ursula scowls and writes down “Both my brothers were mistakes.”
