    the patient with no torso (and no limbs to make his own adjustments) is fussy about how his head is treated.

    He should quit while he’s a head.

    Isn’t that Kowalski?

    I think her attitude is bad because she’s not a head nurse.

    “I think her attitude is bad because she’s not a head nurse.”

    NSFW and decidedly, unredeemably sexist joke follows:

    The nurses knees aren’t visible. How can you tell if (s)he’s wearing knee pads or not?

    I read it as “he’s so worried the comfy pillow will be taken away while he goes to the bathroom, that he left his head behind on the pillow.”

    @James Pollock: No, he was taller than that.

    You’re all too much!

    “You’re all too much!”
    And Squirrel sez “Is there such a thing as too much when it comes to head?”

    I hope he gets better soon so he can get back to work. Bob is the Head Waiter at IHOP.

    When weight reduction surgery goes too far.

    My take was (oh so) slightly different than Billy Bob [1], though that appears to be the consensus.

    It wasn’t so much that he doesn’t have limbs to make his own adjustment and therefore is fussy about how his head is treated. Rather, what else would you expect a disembodied head to be fussy about?

    I see that the name of the comic is ‘Loose Parts’.

    Comic strip semiotics: When was the last time anyone saw a hospital bed with a written chart hanging on the footboard? Yet this is still used as a signal to the reader that it’s in a hospital room.

    On the other hand, the nurse is wearing modern scrubs and a name badge, not an old-fashioned nurse’s uniform with a cap.

    Hizzoner [14] had the same take that I did, but got here ahead of me.

    Jeff [15]: Just yesterday, I encountered a doctors’ office where they wear Google Glass, transmitting the whole examination to what amounts to a stenographer, 200 miles away in San Francisco. Supposedly, this yields better records of the examination and lets the doctor focus on the main event. So maybe the hospital bed above should have an iPad hanging from it.

    Sings: I ….. ain’t got no body ….

  19. Kamino Neko Jul 28th 2016 at 10:32 pm 19

    Jeph…when I was in hospital earlier this year, there was no chart on the bed, but a lot of the information was on a whiteboard on the wall across from it, which the nurses would change whenever they came in and updated things.

    *Jeff…sorry, I just came from the Questionable Content site.

    You guys are tons funnier than the comics. Well done.

    Relatively synchronous: Last night, at the county fair, I got a beer and was pouring it into my (emptied) water bottle, when it foamed up over the top. “Too much head,” I commented. The stranger next to me smiled and asked “Is there ever such a thing as too much head?” So I immediately thought of Mona [11].

    Thanks Ed!
