Imp of the Perverse


I took a long time researching this. There are a lot more phrases to describe that urge some of us get to throw ourselves off a high building so I had to edit some out just to squeeze the joke into a Sunday strip. I don't get the urge to leap myself but I do sometimes get the irresistible urge to stand up during things like a wedding service and swear at the top of my voice.

"irresistable" or "almost irresistable"? If the former, do you have video evidence for our entertainment?

Haha. With any luck both my brother and sister might get married in 2009 so I'll keep you posted.

I started laughing when I saw this because my sister says she has this problem and steers clear of cliffs and ledges. Seriously. So I showed it to her when I was getting the strip ready for the print date. She couldn't believe it had a name!

It's got lots of names. My brother first mentioned this to me when we were teenagers and standing at the top of a high castle tower in Germany.

Your brother and sister might get married? To each other? I thought that was confined to Hawaiian Royalty and people from Arkansas.

er... yeah, I could have put that better couldn't I?
