Once again, my husband has inspired a comic. He did this a few days ago. When he told me the next morning, I was both horrified and amused. I only saw him sniffing our lunch, at which point, he happily reported that his nose still works. As funny as his misadventures are, I hope he doesn’t have another one anytime soon.



It’s a new month, and that means a new vote incentive! Get KT into the top 100 of Top Web Comics for a day, and there will be a bonus comic Monday, August 30.

Hee!

The "lightheaded" panel made me notice something: your technical skill is so good it's invisible, except when you mess with it on purpose. \o/

Why, thank you! That's kind of you to say. ^_^

Haha! That's just as good as not to use the waterpik to clean out your ears. :)

Waterpic
Or for nasal irrigation?

I've used that method (very watered down, though) when I have a terrible cold and cannot breathe *at all*. Clears up those sinuses lickety split.

Burns like hell though, and it does run the risk of ruining your sense of smell for awhile. Still, when you can't breathe - nothing else matters.

You really, really should not do that.

She actually looks kinda happy when screaming "Accccck!", which made me laugh a bit. Funny comic overall, though.

When I was a kid, I tried sticking a Q-Tip up my nose to try to clear it out when I was all stuffed up. It didn't work very well.

It only really messes up your mucous membranes if you over do it. Same thing with your ears.

I really only do a "peroxide treatment" when I feel a cold coming on or while I'm actually sick. For the nose, one should NEVER pour the peroxide into the nasal cavity, THAT could cause problems. Rather, soak a qtip in the peroxide and wipe the inside of the nasal cavity with it. It still burns like whoa, BUT there's less of a risk of it dripping down into your esophagus.

Just doing it the one time, like your hubby did, shouldn't be a problem, unless he poured the entire bottle down his nose. XP

Good Idea/Bad Idea
Hee, I love Kimono's little "..." before she answers. That little moment of "...Okay, what's THIS all about, and how should I respond?"

Now I've heard of 'dropping acid' (which is also something that people really, really, should not do) but that was a trip I bet Minty did not plan on taking...

Minty, we love you so, but you're the reason why the hair dryer tag says "Do not use in the bathtub".

May I suggest to Minty that she give a neti pot a whirl.

My wife swears by those. She uses warm salt water.

She totally looks like a fakie in the lightheaded panel. <3

Oh, and at least they've never done this:

GYAH! I can't even LOOK at the PICTURES again!

Why is it that always when you see a link like this, you just got to click it... *shudder*
...there's nothing as infinite in the universe as the stupidity of mankind... (except, maybe, curiosity...)

I'd like to say that I hope your husband would inspire many more comics as they tend to be quite hilarious, but... not at the expense of his health. ^^;

Oh Minty. I'd say I can't believe you actually did this but for the fact that I can.

Am I the only one who thinks that it looks like Kimono's eating Minty's "hip mint" in the second frame?

Ow, ow, ow!! We never used hydrogen peroxide when I was growing up; we had stuff like Bactine for cuts and scrapes. Then one time I must've hurt myself in school, and the nurse used hydrogen peroxide as a disinfectant, and OUCH. Traumatized, LOL. I can't imagine putting it up my nose. XD

I LOL'd at the bubbly peroxide goo flowing out of Minty's nostrils!

New warning on the hydrogen peroxide bottle: Keep out of reach of Minty.

It can sting if a cut is deep, but it's usually pretty gentle. I always preferred it over alcohol, at least.

I had no idea how to create the peroxide bubbles. It's moisturizer! XD

I know it's not a good idea to drink it (or put it in your nose) but I always thought using hydrogen peroxide as a whitener on teeth (ie a rinse) or in your ear if you have an ear infection where pretty normal, safe uses of the chemical. Is that not the case?

As far as I know (and I'm not a doctor), it's fine as an oral rinse, so long as you don't swallow it. It used to be common to use in the ears, but it's not recommended much anymore.
