The study of genies may one day reveal the secrets of their magic and power.
(This comic strip was previously published on October 7, 2010.)
Easy mistake Fraz. I thought Herpetology was the study of…ah never mind. I suspect Winky has lead you astray!!!!
Don’t blame me! I’m sticking to chocotology.
But just think of how much chocolate a Genie could bring you.
See, Deb is right. A Genie can wink you an endless supply
We need to find some genies! And FAST!!
Geneis are every where just talk few of them. You can realize who the genies are.
Well I can’t find any genies! Maybe they’re hiding from me.
Hey Winky, those Genies usually give three wishes but as it is you I think that you might get more especially if you share your chocolates with him 🙂
Sure, I’d share my chocolate with a genie. If I ever find one! Here, genie genie genie!
Hmm, three wishes… 1st wish…endless supply of chocolate, 2nd wish …endless supply of winegums, 3rd wish…three more wishes.
My first wish would be unlimited wishes, to make sure I didn’t forget to ask for them!
But you knew that was A zoologist who studies reptiles and amphibians…you can’t fool me.
Well they can fool me sometimes. Okay, a lot of the times.
Yes me too 🙂
Find a genie, then make a wish that it is!
I never thought of that! You know where I could find a genie?
I’ve been checking various bottles for years…
no luck so far!
I haven’t been able to find one either! Maybe we should try old lamps?
Make sure you rub them. They won’t come out otherwise.
I won’t forget! The trouble is finding those kind of old lamps.
I have heard that some live in watering cans 🙂 In fact there was a show on here back in the 1970’s called ‘The Genie in the Watering Can’ so how about that for wicked? 🙂
I never heard of that! I better check all the water cans I can find, too!
Check eBay. Everything is for sale.
I searched for “genie” and found a lot of weird things there, but no genies!
I bet they had thousands of watering cans though Fraz 🙂
You must mean the Water Genie Watering Can. They don’t seem to come with genies, though!
Check the sand on your island Fraz. That is where, “I Dream of Jennie,” (the Genie) was found by Tony the astronaut in the 60’s.
Really?? Oh boy!! I’m going to search every inch of the island, then! I really need a Genie!
And a Herpetologist doesn’t study Herpes
That’s the elf from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, isn’t it?
I thought it was about blue jeans.
I’ve been told a genealogist studies people’s families and stuff. Maybe a jeaneologist studies jeans.
Or maybe a denimologist? 🙂
I think it is just vowel trouble. You really meant “genieologist”.
Yeah, that should work! Someone’s got to study genies!
Yes, Fraz. Everything can be studied. Like Winky studying chocolatology.
Yeah, I want to be a genie expert! It might be hard if I can’t find one to study, though.
You should ask Neil Diamond, he was forever in them!!!!
Who is Neil Diamond? And does he have any that he’d give me?
I didn’t know that you were intimate with Neil Diamond Loon, how do you know that he had a big Genie? 🙂
He’s always singing about it. I think he calls it crackling rose !!!!!
Not a fan? We are just messing with a few song titles. He had a big hit Forever in Blue Jeans….. or Genes!!!!
Forever Blue Genies sounds like a lot better song!
Bwahahahahahaha. No it isn’t the study of genies. Excellent.
Have a terrific day filled with chocolate. 🙂
I still think it should be, though. Genies need to be studied!
They need to be found too 🙂
Yeah, that too!
Maybe you’re better off, Fraz! Genies don’t leave a decent paper trail…
I ‘d still like to study them, though. Maybe I could discover their secrets to magic!
Hey Fraz, you can always try jumping out of a lamp, a bottle or a watering can for starters and see how you get along with that first 🙂
I guess I could try that if I could find one big enough that I could get into.
They are likened to the Tardis, so lots of room inside if you find the right one of course? 🙂
Finding the right one is the hard part! Why can’t they label them “Genie Inside” or something?
That would spoil all the fun 🙂
I guess you’re right, but I’m getting desperate for a genie!
there might be one hiding in a packet of wine gums
That should be a fun search!
Hey Nurse Myra
I am joining in the hunt
for the missing Genie, well
i like wine gums too 🙂 🙂
It’s a lot more fun than searching in the sand!
If Fraz’s studies leads to finding a Genie, then it will be time well spent!
No kidding! Then I could have everything I want!! I wonder if you can wear out a genie?
You best choose carefully. You only get three wishes!
I was counting on the first wish being the “I want unlimited wishes” wish!
Unless one of the wishes is for more wishes?
You have to ask for more wishes! Three isn’t nearly enough!
Well it certainly should be Fraz. Rub a bottle & study what comes out. Even make a wish or 3
I know, it’s kind of a letdown that genealogy isn’t the study of genies. So far none of the bottles or lamps I’ve rubbed had any genies in them. But I’ll keep trying.
You have to rub the bottles faster Fraz, and maybe sing one of your jingles too? 🙂
I’m not sure if my singing will help, or just scare the genies away.
Unless you’re of Genie descent! Who knows, Fraz. Who knows…
I don’t think I have any genies in my family, though. At least no one will admit it!
I wish for unlimited wishes. 🙂
That would be my first wish!
Being a genealogist won’t guarantee finding a Genie anyway. Just ask Dinosaurologists.
I guess not, but I thought it was worth a try. Those genies have got to be hiding somewhere!
Awwww…and just when he was prepared to rub the heck out of bunch of magic lamps, too. 🙁
And those magic lamps are pretty hard to find, too!
My aunt is a genealogist. It’s a lot more interesting than studying genies.
I don’t know about that!
3 wishes please:
1. 70,000 Facebook followers at JP Ghost.
2. Uh, I can’t remember the second one. I wish I knew it.
3. More wishes.
Number two wish is unlimited chocolate!
Why is this so confusing … the study of genies is an ‘Alladinologist’! W.C.C.
Well no one told me! Okay, I’m going to become an Alladinologist then!
I wish to find some genie too… but I’m still not sure about my wishes… 😉
I’ll worry about my wishes after I find my genie!
I would love to see the Wombie family tree.
Please, Fraz… 🙂
That would be treemendous Cha 🙂
I think there might be some monkeys in that tree! People tell me I’m a little monkey all the time.
Yes I can believe that, and you sometimes like a banana on your pancakes too I bet? 🙂
How did you know? And I like bananas with peanut butter, too!
Really? We there goes my plans for an early retirement! 😉
It’s kind of ruined my career plans, too!
I love that kitchen panel. The reflections on the oven door and the shadows from the chair are amazing!
Thanks, Denny. It took me hours to draw that. Well, maybe not.
I looked it up and apparently it isn’t the study of a guy named Gene E., either!
Yeah, I think they just make up names to confuse us.
Studying genies WOULD be pretty cool…. Fraz is SO cute!
Cute didn’t get me a genie. though!
Haha, so innocent and lovable
I try to be!
I am back!!!! Miss you all wombies :hug:
Ahh…so it’s not about genies? You and I have same thought Fraz
Welcome back, Kroten! I hope mommy enjoyed the concert and didn’t hyperventilate too much!
ah!!! she is still in another world #sigh
especially that today is 1 week after the concert
I guess she won’t be forgetting that experience very soon.
I still say genealogy should be the study of genies!
They are interesting creatures to study
They sure are! And their wishes are pretty good, too!
Oh I am a genie and I love chocolates! 😀 Very funny. I agree with you on the study of genies.
Do you grant wishes?
