Boomeranganning

I think this is the basic experience people have with throwing a boomerang. Like playing Frisbee by yourself, lots of fetching. Although I always just had like those weird Nerf ones and stuff.

Actually though, someone got me a wooden boomerang, in fact I believe I still have it sitting around here somewhere. I was just always too scared to try and throw the thing. Man, one of these days I’m going to do it, I’m going to find myself a big field and I’m going to give that thing all I got…

Hey, I still need a couple people to sign up at Wowio to win an iPod Shuffle, today’s the last day. Enter [email protected] as referring you. If you do, that would be super cool, Wowio is a totally free website you can download books from, they have a lot of great comic books too!

Also don’t miss the new Wallpaper!

    I have only ever seen a boomerang thrown in real life once and that was by my 6th grade teacher – a strange white man who was trying to teach the entire class how to throw the thing. At the end of the day, he was the only one who didn’t have to run across the playground to fetch it and we kids were all bored to death.

    It will comeb back any moment… Any moment… 😐

    Next comic:
    :mrgreen: : Aw man! It’s busted!
    😐 : Ya, let’s go.
    THWACK! ( Hits Osborne in the back of the head) 😮

    Yeah, I have a boomerang too that my friend gave me. I tried throwing it, it never really works or whatever. You have to throw it a certain way.
    😐 Osborne is still using his regular expression. It looks like Garfield, who pretty much has the same expression all the time.

    MY BOOMERANG WON’T COME BACK
    Charlie Drake – 1961

    (Oom-yacka-wurka, oom-yacka-wurka, oom-yacka-wurka)

    In the bad backlands of Australia
    Many years ago,
    The aborigine tribes were meeting,
    Having a big pow-wow.

    (Oom-yacka-wurka, oom-yacka-wurka)

    “We got a lot of trouble, Chief,
    On account of your son Mack.”
    “My boy Mack? Why, what’s wrong with him?”
    DRAKE: My boomerang won’t come back.
    “Your boomerang won’t come back?”

    DRAKE: My boomerang won’t come back,
    My boomerang won’t come back,
    I’ve waved the thing all over the place,
    Practised till I was black in the face,
    I’m a big disgrace to the Aborigine race,
    My boomerang won’t come back.

    DRAKE: I can ride a kangaroo (yeah yeah)
    Make kinkajou stew (yeah yeah)
    But I’m a big disgrace to the Aborigine race,
    My boomerang won’t come back.

    They banished him from the tribe then
    And sent him on his way,
    He had a backless boomerang
    So here he could not stay.

    (Animal noises)

    DRAKE: [Spoken] This is nice, innit? Getting banished at my time of life. What a way to spend an evening: sitting on a rock in the middle of the desert with me boomerang in me hand. I shall very likely get bushwhacked.

    (An animal roars; Drake shrieks back.)

    DRAKE: Get out of it! You nasty bushwhacking animal. Think I’ll make a nice cup of tea. (Doing, doing, doing…) Good gracious! There goes a kangaroo. I must have a practice with me boomerang: hit him right behind the left earhole. Now then, slowly back.

    Gruff voice: If you throw that thing at me, I’ll jump right on your head. (It chuckles and bounces away.)

    DRAKE: Innit marvellous? Got a land full of kangaroos and I had to pick that one.

    For three long months he sat there
    Or maybe it was four,
    Then an old old man in a kangaroo skin
    Came a-knocking at his door.

    “Well, I’m the local witch doctor, son,
    They call me George Alfred Black.
    Now tell me, what’s your trouble, boy?”

    DRAKE: My boomerang won’t come back.
    “Your boomerang won’t come back?”

    DRAKE: My boomerang won’t come back,
    My boomerang won’t come back,
    I’ve waved the thing all over the place,
    Practised till I was black in the face,
    I’m a big disgrace to the Aborigine race,
    My boomerang won’t come back.

    “Don’t worry, boy, I know the trick,
    And to you I’m gonna show it.
    If you want your boomerang to come back,
    Well first you’ve got to… throw it.”

    DRAKE: Ooh, yes! Never thought of that. Daddy will be pleased. Must have a go, nyuh-huh! Excuse me. Now then, slowly back… and throw.

    (Boomerang whizzes away; Sounds of a plane approaching and then falling from the sky.)

    DRAKE: Ooh my God! I’ve hit the flying doctor. Eee-hee-hee! Can you do first aid?
    Witch Doctor: Don’t talk to me about first aid, boy, you owe me fourteen chickens, you know, when I learned you to throw the boomerang, you know, first things first.
    DRAKE: Yes, I know that, but I mean, I think on this occasion, you know, you could be a bit more perspective………..

    boomerangs have never worked for me either, Tyler 😛 I, too always had the weirdo Nerf ones…. but my little brother could always make it work… that was sometimes depressing 😥

    My sixth grade teacher got a boomerang that he got from Australia. It looked cool, but he never threw it. 😕 I think it was because it was more of an antique thing . . . :smile:

    I signed up for Wowio and said you referred me. Here’s to getting your iPod! :mrgreen:

  • Kat

    My question: How did Wally throw the boomerang? It’s all in the wrist. :mrgreen:

  • New Guy

    I think when I threw a Nerf boomerang it came back.. not sure though

  • http://www.therpsite.com Captain Steven the Pirate

    I use razor-sharp, metal boomerangs on me ship. They don’t come back, but that’s because they end up lodged inside me enemies! ARGH!

    Awesome comic, as usual. Two hooks up! ARGH! 😎

    😉 :mrgreen: love it Tyler just love it! i have a boomerang and i would have the same results as Wally, but now ive mastered the art of boomeranging! ❗ 😎 :smile:

  • http://play.clubpenguin.com/load.swf clubpenguindude

    i have no experience with bommeranging whatsoever.Exept, of course, in Zelda-I wish it was metal, then you could actually KILL your enemies with it…not just bonk them on the head.

  • penguin lover

    my friend had a plastic blue boomerang,… 2 concussions, 1 nasty cut and a lot of bruises made him toss it in the trash. 😳

    Actually, we tend to sell cheap knockoff boomerangs to tourists.. its because we’re a nation founded by crooks.

    For a boomerang to work, it has to be curved on both sides (bottom and top). And what you will generally find is boomerangs for sale with one side curved and the other flat…

  • Cristina

    so i didn’t actually end up with wowio working…. to sign up you had to have a non anonomus email address and i don’t have one and if i did i wouldn’t be allowed to give it out. so hopefully enough other people were able to sign up to get you the ipod tyler!
