BUT CAN IT FEEL??!?!

There's a comic strip that was posted on here years ago, like a white business man, sweating profusely, who can't stop thinking about sex. Vague description I know. I've tried googling a few times but can't find it. Does anyone remember this?

I'm looking for a science fiction short story. The premise is that because of overpopulation or something, people only live on alternate days and they get put in stasis on the other days, so for example one person would live Monday Wednesday and Friday, and the other one would live Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, and then maybe every other Sunday or something like that. My memory is hazy and Google hasn't helped.

I can't help but In think it's the sf Stack Exchange where identify-the-story questions are allowed and the people who hang around have encyclopaedic knowledge of golden age pulp.

Unfortunately not it. It's a short story for sure...probably written somewhere between the 50s and the end of the 70s.

e: whoops, I see I somehow forgot to include the word "short" in my initial description.
Your initial description made me think of Philip Josť Farmer's Dayworld books, and it turns out the first novel was based on his 1971 short story called The Sliced-Crosswise Only-On-Tuesday World (wikipedia link). People only get to be awake one day a week in that, but it otherwise sounds like a possible match, with a little Gift of the Magi type thing in a future world wracked by overpopulation and pollution.

Looking for a .gif I lost a long time ago. Its from The Critic and shows Jay Sherman flipping through his planner, where the days say Binge and Purge. Trying to find this .gif led me to discover 1) there are a depressingly great number of websites about eating disorders and 2) a depressingly small amount of Critic .gifs.

No, Binge/Purge is also from The Critic. Episode 7, "Every Doris Has Her Day", about 11:10 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFhh-h4tCZA
I can't find a gif, but you can perhaps make an all new one of your own. (Manic/Depressive, I think, is from the season 2 opener.)


By the way, thanks to the Identify That Book thread, I finally learned the identity of my white whale! It arrived in the mail this week. For those curious:

Harvey TWH posted:

1. My biggest white whale: a YA novel (possibly a series) about a boy and a graphing calculator. I got this/these from the library in the early-mid 90s, and considering the tech involved they could have been up to a decade or so old. This kid's mom is doing research in the jungle or something and then goes missing (dad too?), possibly kidnapped. Through a dialup BBS he finds or is contacted by something that turns out to be an AI program that wants to help him out, and the AI gives him instructions to mod his graphing calculator to both host the AI and augment its abilities, so it can scan through satellite images of the jungle and stuff. Perennial searches with various keywords have come up dry. (It, by the way, is not The Computer That Ate My Brother, though maybe that title is someone else's WW.)
Turned out to be The Lost Forest, by Ian McMahan, last in the "Microkid" adventure series. I wasn't that far off with my description at all... this hybrid device is called a "compulator", and it was apparently created in an earlier book. The other books are on their way to me, but I can't recall if I have indeed read them too.

I've been trying to find a Conan O'Brien intro that goes like :

"Last time on Conan O'Brien" and then it shows a bunch of made up clips from previous episodes where Andy was poisoned, and generally a bunch of evil behind the scenes/backstabbing stuff was going on, like the show was Dallas or something.

It wasn't during the TBS era, it was older than that.

Failing that, there's a show when he went to California and Andy sleeps with the actress Conan wants, that's another one I haven't seen in forever.

This is crazy timing; Conan's youtube literally just uploaded it

Turns out it was Max that was poisoned.

Have one more: there was a quote from a goon a few years back inventing a movie premise that was something like two stoners breaking into the Vatican to save the pope or something, and the post basically went on to write up a pretty absurd number of potential scenes like holy water being bong water. The whole thing came off like an off-hand sales pitch to a Hollywood exec and it was absolutely marvelous.

The Most High!

Not sure if anyone has the original post but someone's replicated it on reddit:

quote:

Alright, jerkfaces, time for a real man to enter this movie pitching game.

The film starts by establishing that the Pope is dying and it's only a matter of time before he passes on to the great pulpit in the sky. So our two heroes, who have heard of the fabled Stash of Saladin in the Vatican archives, trek to the Vatican knowing that everyone will be distracted preparing for the upcoming papal selection, and they plan to try to steal the weed. Hilarity ensues as they stumble through set piece after set piece, including the aforementioned communion-wafer munchies, a scene in which they hide a joint in what turns out to be a ceremonial censer and get an entire congregation a contact high, and I dunno, a scene where they need to fill a bong with holy water or something.

The climax comes when they're caught and pursued through the city by the Swiss Guard, and through a series of mishaps end up in the Room of Tears and disguise themselves in robes that they find there. They finally end up smoking their stash but get caught halfway through and run away, but since it's very special ancient weed the smoke ends up billowing white, so the group assembled in St. Peter's Square think a new Pope has been elected, and somehow the two end up on the balcony and everyone mistakes them for the Cardinal Protodeacon and the new Pope, so one of them has to give a speech (in a nod to The Great Dictator) and he ends up making a plea that everyone chill and be more real to each other and stuff. And the speech goes over really well and everyone cheers and then we do a voice over by one of the guys saying that while he didn't actually become Pope everyone loved his speech so much that they were both given pardons by the real new Pope and they got the girls (earlier we will have established that they stirred some decidedly unchaste feelings in two young ladies who hadn't yet taken their final vows). Then after the credits we have a scene in which the new Pope goes down into the archive himself, locks the door behind him and takes a big hit off of Saladin's Stash and says "Ahhh...stercus bonus!" THE END

We call the film "The Most High," give it a tagline like "The dope is infallible" and release at Easter 2014. 4/20/14.

You're all welcome.

When I was a young teenager, I was listening to an Elvis Costello cassette tape with my mom as we were driving around town on an errand run. One of the songs described a grim murder scene where all the family members were dead and I really dug it, and I have no idea what that song was. Maybe I am misremembering it.
