Incomplete Picture

That feeling when you're missing words in a foreign language and laugh at the wrong time

I won't ever laugh at what happened to your grandma.

Cultural Clockwork

Swiss watches are perfectly accurate because the Swiss are so punctual. If the Spanish made watches, they would be crazy because the Spanish are never on time anyway


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why keep time at all when you could be supporting
Itchy Feet comics instead? Yes, that makes sense.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: Hey guys, please keep it civil. I'm going to be deleting any comments that insult other people, though I'll keep any that accuse ME of being insulting. My intention was absolutely not to offend anyone - this was clearly a joke gone wrong. But it's good to keep up my failures as well, to remind me in the future that sometimes I make mistakes. 

As I said though, please be civil to one another.

Sponsored Comic: Stack 'Em High

Polyglots language learners collect new languages like candy

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday surprise!

So this is something new I'm trying out. To be completely honest with you, I'm still a bit conflicted about it. I was approached by Lingoda to create a comic that they would sponsor, but it's really important to me that you, the readers, don't just get a bunch of advertising in your feed. You're here for comics, not ads! That's why this site has been conspicuously ad-free for a long time. 

However, I figured that a sponsored comic would be acceptable if: 1) the advertising wasn't too in-your-face, 2) it was still a genuine Itchy Feet comic in every other way, and 3) it didn't replace the regular Sunday comics.

What are your thoughts? Is this just more delicious Itchy Feet content for you to enjoy, or shameful exploitation of the bean-shaped comic arts? I am really interested to hear what you think.
