It's the same with the tiger tokens from the petrol station (several million years ago). I've got thousands of those suckers on top of my fridge. Not accepted in vending machines!? What's the craic with that?!(I think there may be some phrases in this comment that are exclusive to Ireland...Tá brón orm)
@Cristine My side of the atlantic it's pronounced "Cou"pon as in a military "cou" and we sneer at those who say "queue"pon. But we are nasty snobs so pronounce it however you like.Everyone in Ireland firmly believes that we speak English better than the English (even when we pronounce film as "fill-um") so I guess America and us have that in common. (But seriously, "Wreck-loose"? it's clearly "re-cloose")
Coupons are fantastic and yet horrible at the same time as they offer you the chance to save money but make you feel like a miser when you hand them over (sort of a Supermarket Mr Krabbs).Really good blog and glad I found it really fresh.Anyone interested in football or music please read minehttp://adampsb.blogspot.com/2010/09/between-two-islands.html
LOL, I noticed that the creepy woman from the previous blog post and the stripper from this post look alike!
LMAO! i wasn't expecting the stripper!! hahahaha
and hear i thought coupons were always good..lolgreat posthttp://becca-mycrazystuff.blogspot.com/
Nice Pictures :)
OMG I laughed so freaking hard! Just awesome pure genius.
ALLIE!!! You are today's blog of note!!! CONGRATS!!!
Your Blog of note dream finally came true!
I like this entry, but I think your stories have always been more entertaining your illustrations. The drawings are funny, but on their own, they're missing the charm that comes with the writings that follow them.
It's my first time in your blog and I'm already following you! Keep your thing up! you're good.xx
Yes...That's 100% correct.Coupons are not.
IM STILL WAITING FOR MY ALOT DRAWINGhttp://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/dbuw5/by_request_i_am_allie_brosh_of_hyperbole_and_a/c0z1ovb
Brilliant.Congrats on your little slice of internet fame. Keep it up.
Dear Allie,You get so many comments on your blog, I hope that mine is not lost in the shuffle. I just started my dream job three weeks ago, and I'm trying really hard to be awesome at it. They gave me a laptop and the first thing I did was add my favorite Hyperbole drawing as my desktop background (I put your blog address below the picture, so no worries!). I LOL uncontrollably whenever I see the picture of you squinting your eyes at your dog while training it to sit. I want to impress my new co-workers and was really delighted to be the one to use their laptop as the screen for our meeting today. They hooked my computer up to a 47-inch monitor mounted on the wall so everyone in the office could see the presentation. However, during the meeting my computer fell asleep and I wiggled my mouse to wake it up, not realizing that it exited out of the power-point slides and instead of the presentation, there was a giant picture of yours displayed on the monitor in front of my entire office.Free advertising. You're welcome. :)
YEAH!!!!! There's never been a more WELL DESERVED blog of note. Yeah.Yeah.
Wonderful post, but... I am fairly certain that coupons are legal tender for both house downpayments, and the collection plate at church. The Lord loves $1 off Febreze. Thank you for a hilarious, adorable, crazy as f*&k blog. aaaaaOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOgah!
You are a blog of note! That's like, the Emmy Award of Blogspot! Congratulations!
Why am I just now finding this blog? This is amazing.buffgamer.blogspot.com
I thought that stripper was crying but it turns out she just had blue eyes. Just saying...I've seen both.
Congratualtions on being a blog of note!
I am known as The Crazy Coupon Lady at my local grocery store. I save a good $40 with each trip in coupons alone (not to mention specials). If the world accepted coupons as actual MONEY, oh my gosh, I would be so rich. And I would have that dishwasher I've so desperately wanted for so long. You know, after having her stalk him in a cafetria, you'd think the fellow in orange would go out of his way to avoid the stripper, not provoke her with coupons. Some people never learn, do they.
Got the monthly ValPak envelope today. Does anyone even open these? Same terrible coupons every time: satellite TV offers, 10% off professional carpet cleaning, personalized checks, that kind of stuff. The only pizza coupons are for a place 40 minutes from my house!
OH! I wish, when I was stripping that someone offered me a 15% discount at Applebees! How sweet! Total love of my life, right there!
Love the shoes
Hehehe ... I like the way you put things across
un grand et joyeux bonjour de France ...
You're a blog of nooote! YOU'RE A BLOG OF NOTE! *flails arms around wildly*What took them so long, anyway? You totally deserve it!Greetings from Egypt :D
Hi! Hyperbole and a half... Congratulation! for being honoured as a Blog Of Note.This is my first time visiting your blog and I find it to be very humorous and very interesting too!Thanks, for sharing!DeeDee ;-D
There are far too many comments here. One can easily get lost. podcasts
why too many?PS Any comments?
The victim of 'the trap' gets revenge--the reverse-trap!
I went insane today and read all of your blog right back til October last year and YOU, Sir (Madam) are a monkey genius. If I could go back to a time before I had read your blog, it would be to meet an ignorant, less amused version of myself, who did not know the difference between bears and women (even though I am one - a woman, not a bear) and could not appreciate that some dogs are actually retarded (I touched two dogs tonight, but not in an inappropriate way). You're awesme and I love your blog and I met someone on public transport yesterday who does too. So you're officially famous like you wanted and CONGRATS. Now give us more of your delicious brain babies.- Leigh
You're a lyrical genius! I just bloody found your blog, and now it's on me reading list! Laws me. You know it's funny, because it's true.
Wow,you really saved my ass there. I was going to give Skittles the stripper a %50 off at goodwill. That would have been awkward.
Allie, you are famous! Congrats on the Blog of Note recognition. Can't think of anyone more deserving.
This one is so weak. I didn't even smile, it's so lame.Nice try, but this one is probably your biggest flop yet. Bring back the true humor.
i lol'd at the last one and the birthday card XD
Great blog love it :)anyone know how she managed the personalized follow button?thankyou keep up the good work x
How funny you are! Love Paint!http://aestheticandmovies.blogspot.com
I love Your ART HELL'S YEAH! ANYTHING I CAN DO TO WILL! FACEBOOK SHARE!
LOVE IT WWW.RANDOMDANCING1.BLOGSPOT.COM
Christine: It's B) Coo-pon. Rhymes with poop on.Allie: Awesomeness, as usual. What kind of sick, cheap bastard would give coupons in a birthday card??Congrats on being yesterday's Blog of Note!
I don't know about you but I would take the Applebee's coupon.
ALie I'm sad now! I just read your intire blog from start to finish (over a couple weeks. not one day. I'm not THAT crazy). You are super funny by the way. I totally love you forever now. Accept it. But I'm sad because now i have to wait for new posts to be entertained by you. :(-Best Wishes!From Arianne
CONGRATS! I love this page!!SteveCommon Centshttp://www.commoncts.blogspot.comps. Link Exchange???
So very true, and so not fare! I mean really, that stripper should be appreciateve of a discounted meal at Applebees - she probably needs it! LOL
Ooh blog of note Allie!
love it. ur a talented drawer. for anyone interested, here's my blog :http://tarafoxz.blogspot.com
I'm really happy to have found this blog again. I followed it for a while after I found the 'alot' page - but never did get it bookmarked. Then I lost track and couldn't remember the name, blogs of note isn't such a bad thing afterall.I love the humour and imagery, its just my kind of style.T.
As a form of advertising, coupons are equivalent to the guys holding signs on street medians trying to get you to go to their Mexican restaurant. It's just weak.
Really nice :D Great job!http://www.n3os3r.com
The Sunday paper used to have good coupons. Lately, not so much. But yesterday I got the latest COSTCO coupon book in the mail, which I always look forward to. Two bucks off my favorite cereal- Cinnamon Toast Crunch, four dollars off a giant box of Splenda... There's even one for *twenty* off that 2TB hard drive I've been coveting. Most grocery stores don't even carry hard drives!P.S. Why does Safeway have coupons that must be used in *conjunction* with their club card?
Oh my goodness. I've just spent the best part of 2 hours doing nothing but reading your posts and they are categorically awesome. I've just recently become obsessed with a guy called Edward Monkton over here in the UK who kind of does what you do but not half as well as you do it. Keep the awesome coming!Fiona
Dear Allie,Since I am busily reading your blog from the beginning, but couldn't help but notice this post because it's like if a book were printed backwards and then somehow you were expected not to read the last page first, but you have to. Because you (by which I mean me) do that even with normally printed books, just to see who is still alive.Er, my subordinate clause got a little too long for me to continue that sentence properly. Let's try again:Since I'm reading your blog from the beginning, but couldn't help but see this post anyway, I happened to connect something together which I think I would totally clarify this post.You should point out that the coupons come from Jesus. Then more people would accept them in more situations.Just a thought,-silver.
I made a blogger account just so that I could finally leave comments saying how funny I think you are and how that fish story made me laugh until I cried but then I ended up creating a blog, too. Look what you've done!
When I was little I used to give my mom and grandparents "hug coupons" for birthdays and mothers day, and they worked JUST FINE.
I would pole dance for coupons worth up to 99 cents.Then, I'd hit up the coupon-doubler grocer store day and get double the tip.It's MATH. I think Winnie Cooper wrote a book about this exact topic.
grocerY store. Because that wasn't obvious, and it looked like you needed someone to beef up your comments. You hadn't hit 600 yet today, so I was a little concerned.
BWAHAHAHAHAH this is more funny to me then most people, since my grandmother, for as long as i can remember, sends me coupons in EVERY greeting card she sends me!!!!!!!
Am I the only one slightly disappointed in the lack of witty explanations that usually accompany these lovely comics?
lmao! loved it. :)
haha this is so true. but coupons are awesome
Fun! Years ago in UK there were coupons ("Coo-pons") in various papers and often delivered to the house as part of advertising for a food shop. But they seem to be a thing of the past.www.lindabutterfly.etsy.com
It is brilliant what you do. It is still like that. A greeting from spainhttp://finca-adral.blogspot.com/
"How about a gift card? Do strippers like those?"Yeah, but they can scratch.software company
Very short and simple but also a good laugh. This is the kind of comedy i feel people don't appreciate.
Sorry anonymous,I missed that.Could you just repeat it for me?
I realize there's no chance you're going to read this since you have a zillion commenters, but just in case. I wanted to say that I just found your blog through Blogs of Note, and I now realize exactly how much hilarity has been missing in my life. You're so funny!! Unfortunately, you are now also responsible for several unproductive hours that I spent addictively reading your blog and sending it to everyone I know.Thanks for the laughs!
hey!Characters are really cute!!
I usually mail my coupons and local junk mail to the people sending me credit card applications or other stuff that contain postage paid envelopes.
Coupons are not acceptable for Valentine's Day or Anniversaries either. No sir, they are NOT.hhtp://ladonnaelavoce.blogspot.com
I once put my email address into a pop-up window because I was promised a $300 Applebee's gift certificate. I'm still cleaning up the avalanche of spam :(
MOAR POSTS PLEASE NOW!kthxbai.
Your blog is hilarious! I have been reading it for awhile now without having a blog. I have one I just started today. :D Nowhere near as funny as yours, but it's the effort that counts right?!
DUDE!!! You so made bloggers, blogs of note for sept. 10th. FINALLY!!! The world is catching on to the awesomeness we have already experienced.Took em long enough.
This post rocks. My landlord is old and crotchety but still probably wouldn't take coupons for the rent@candice- coupons to mcdonalds are way awesomer than Lutheran assoc. (or whatever it was called) booklets and an american heart assoc. cookbook which was the kind of stuff (and actull gift for my 7th b-day) my grandmother gave me for my birthday as a kid. Chicken nuggets are awesome...
I hate to wait for coupons....which always cheat you to buy more...suckshttp://blog.powersellerunion.com/
Glad someone said it! My ex's grandparents used to send him coupons in his birthday cards and didn't understand $20 in coupons was NOT a $20 gift.
I would respectfully disagree on the stripper. I think some strippers would value coupons. Talk to her, find out which college she's attending, give her a coupon for 40% off college texts. Go through the good restaurants around the club; 50% off dinner might be wonderful.There's a lot of ways to impress a stripper. Money's only one of them.
Coupons in small numbers are hard to stomach but what about those "Gold C Books" or "Entertainment Books"??? It's a Yellow Pages of dang coupons!! I kind of wished that guy in the orange shirt and no definition in the last comic would've had one of those big coupon BOOKS, tossed it up at stripper lady and accidentally bruised one of her boobs. While she was recovering from her bruised boob, maybe she'd reconsider flashing her girly parts to all the nasty, sweaty men shoving Applebee's coupons in her face. She'd move on and realize she was better suited for turning the bulbs on and off of a tanning bed or something. While she sat bored at the tanning salon, she'd pick up a book for the first time in her life, begin to like to read, go to college and... You see where I am going with this... And it all started with coupons. So, GIVE COUPONS A DANG BREAK!!!
all the strippers n my town take coupons. i got a lap dance for a 20% off coupon jiffy lube!!!
I like to use coupons to find common ground with strangers.Me: Hi. Do you like free coupons?Stranger: Yes! Are you giving them out?Me: No. I just like them too.Stranger: ....
Wonderful article,thanks for putting this together! "This is obviously one great post. Thanks for the valuable information and insights you have so provided here. Keep it up!"
If I were a stripper I would KILL (literally KILL) for an Applebee's coupon. It's not as if I would have any dignity left to offend.
where exactly is this fine establishment accepting Applebees coupons...just need to know for a friend.
^Christine: I pronounce it both ways as well. I guess it depends on my mood. I think sometimes it depends on the region you live in.Allie, you mean all those coupons I got in the mail when I moved are pointless? (Yes, yes they are.)
Wayyy too cute! I think using coupons should be a form of money!Trishhttp://SoapyBlessings.blogspot.com
Haha, I like the first and last one. I really wish paying your bills with coupons was allowed sometimes.
LMAO.amazing blog.<3 dennica pearl- through the eyes of a pearl- vintage shop
Nice drawnigs, really funny.
I got a coupon for my birthday YESTERDAY from my MIL, how apropos your post is.
I absolutely LOVE the face and head tilt thing goin' on in the "COUPONS?" picture. xD (oh, and also the guy saying "Okay!" int he first picture. hahaha.)
This is sweet man. Just hilarous. Check me out sometime!
@Christine: "coo"pon, NEVER "queue"pon :)Also this post is super super super awesome :) More cartoons please!
A friend of mine took your lesson to heart. She said she was going to give me a Starbucks treat receipt (coupon) for my birthday, but as she recently learned (from you) that this would be valid, she chose to give me a gift card instead. Thank you for this valuable public service. :P
A very valid point, so excellently portrayed by these nondescript, white blob creatures.
I want 15% off my next dinner at Applebee's. :-(
Birthday coupons ... still laughing :)
One of our favorite blogs always comes through! Just wanted to say we love your blog!
Do you turn off the ability to comment on posts after they are a certain age? (amount old? I couldn't decide how to phrase that?!) I attempted to comment on your bacon post from Nov 09, telling you how much I also adore bacon, hate baconnaise (even though when I first saw it in the store I was brought to tears and my boyfriend hasn't let it go) and it wouldn't let me!!! earlier today my bff tried to comment on your post, also from Nov-ish 09, about your sister having a mental illness because her sister does also and you are an extremely relate-able blogger and it wouldn't let her!!!:) not mad at your blog and will continue reading like I'm an addict... just saying... rather awkwardly.
Today my math teacher gave me a coupon for getting an A.It can be used for an occasion in which I don't do my homework.Utterly awesome coupon.
So, the funny thing here is...I totally had the same tooth issue. Mine was in the roof of my mouth, and required the same deal, and I too was a mess the whole day. Thanks for the walk down memory lane!
So many comments, I am so envious!!!!!!!!!!
I used to be a stripper. I can confidently say that if anyone ever tried to put a coupon on my stage, they would have promptly received a clear plastic stiletto in the face.Don't forget to tip your dancer, gents. *wink*

Way too many of your posts of you as a child are far too similar to my daughter. I send them to husband and he agrees. Does that mean she is destined to become you?
Goddamn, why is your blog such a delight to read? I've just now decided to Follow you, but I've actually been looking at your work for a while now. You are definitely talented, and this art and prose proves that. Thank you for making me smile. :)I have a blog as well, which you can follow if you're interested. It's the life story of a badass, modern Pecos-Bill-type character told in daily vignettes. I'm looking for actual readers, rather than just clickers/supporters, so if anyone's interested, feel free to take a look. =)http://tornadojackson.blogspot.com/
Hilarious. You truly rock!!!
Congratulations! I enjoyed your blog.I am Brazilian and my blog is: www.desventurasdedavi.comuntil another visit.
I just found this blog and I LOVE IT. I've almost read every post on this site... couple more days, and i'll have it down.You're hilarious. And comforting... I know I'm not the only one in the world constantly afraid that there is an axe murderer in the other room.You're awesome.I think I love you.And you can thank me for like ten more people who follow your blog. :]]You're welcome!haha
I like coupons. I've collected loads of them over time. Loads of money off stuuf, so that's great.So why have I never ever used one. Ever?I think they look better in magazines than they do in my wallet. Money coupons are much better. :D
Allie, I know I have never commented to you before, but I will miss you. I am going to be leaving to go to basic training for the Navy very shortly and I would like you to know that when I return I will backtrack and read everything I missed. I will most likely go through withdrawal without you. It warms my heart to imagine that the next time you are potentially dying or trying to use coupons for strippers that I may make you feel better.
Somehow I missed this when it first came out, very funny! I just have to comment. I had a baby shower earlier this year and my aunt gave me a card with COUPONS for baby stuff she'd clipped over the last couple weekends. It was thoughtful, but a gift would have been better. Like even a small box of diapers would have been better than a coupon for diapers. Do you think a person with a new baby has time to figure out which coupons to use and where? I ended up losing them all over my car and I'm sure they are expired now!
douple post... sorry!
I made a Wordle creation from this post: Wordle - Hyperbole and a Half (actually, it was from the RSS feed. I don't know how that works)
Using coupons to pay your rent seems like a very David Thorne move. :-)
hi! just stopping by to say congrats on becoming a blog of note and please follow my blog if you want at...http://jenniferscavone.blogspot.comthanks!
