Dave!All the world seems to want nothing more than to stay contained inside the little box they call their life. They don't want to venture out... they certainly don't want anything new or different coming in. And the minute you try to cut a small hole in their box so you can say hello or share an idea, they've got the duct tape out to plaster over it. This wouldn't be too bad except these same people are intent of keeping everybody else confined in little boxes too...

DAVETOON: Lil' Dave in a Box

The worst part is that you don't even get to choose your own container, other people pick it for you. The best you can do is decorate the inside of your box with cool stickers and stuff.

But I ran out of stickers years ago.

And now I'm just tired.

I am so tired of being trapped in this box I've been stuffed into.


Or, to put it another way... why? Why won't they let me order breakfast at McDonalds after 10:30?

    And don’t even try to get breakfast at 10:31. They won’t even consider it!

  2. Mad William says:

    …or get a cheese burger before 10:30.

    I feel your pain. It’s just wrong

  3. Tori says:

    ugh!!! I KNOW!

    Breakfast & Coffee from MickyDee’s… mmmm

  4. bluepaintred says:

    I KNOW!

    Im never up in time to drive all the way into the city for a bacon and egger, and I WANT ONE!

  5. Grant says:

    The question should really be, “Why are you ordering breakfast at McDonald’s?”

    I know Jack In the Box serves b-fast all day, and I think Carl’s Jr does, too. The boxes are being broken down like Neo on the loose!

  6. Scott says:

    Because they’re not like you or I!

  7. Timothy says:

    As soon as you break out of one box, they try to put you in another. You’ve got to be slippery so they find it difficult to hold on.

    Unfortunately, it’s not just McDonald’s. I quarrelled with a restaurant’s management about the same 10:30 breakfast cut off just two Sunday’s ago. I cannot think of a better day for a late(-ish) breakfast than Sunday.

  8. RiceWenchie says:

    You don’t get breakfast til 10 am in your box? GAH!! It’s a Dave-tastrophe!

    I have upgraded to a cave and it is wonderful. I get to have whatever food I want AND I have cable. :o)

  9. Elizabeth says:

    Haha! I was sitting here nodding, thinking, “Yeah! That’s kinda how I feel!” Well, I do like me a good egg and cheese biscuit from time to time.

  10. Robguy says:

    Can you imagine how that breakfast would taste when it’s been under their warming lights for 4 hours? Inside my box, we never eat (except for their 30 cent ice cream cones) at McDonalds, but I wish you luck in reaching your aspirations.

  11. Sarah says:

    I don’t eat breakfast at McDonalds. I don’t like eggs, I find this makes getting breakfast at places interesting because eggs are everywhere. Fried, scrambled, over easy (whatever the hell that means). It’s like they are haunting me or something.

    I like french toast. Does that help?

  12. Iron Fist says:

    And if they won’t let you choose your box, you think at least they’d let you choose the toy they put in your Happy Meal. Bastards.

  13. NYCWD says:

    I can order breakfast at McDonald’s until 10:59 b/c the sign says Breakfast Served until 11:00 and they fear me calling their corporate complaint line.

    Yeah… I got a box cutter.

  14. A Lewis says:

    I hope the box can be ripped open, thrown to the wind, and a fresh gust of invigorating air can blow you this year…. And, of course, you remember my McDonald’s story.

    Happy New Year!

  15. Avitable says:

    That is a mystery that will never be solved in our lifetimes.

  16. Finn says:

    Who eats lunch at 10:30 am?

    I think we all need a boxcutter.

  17. Lexi says:

    I hear you can ask for unsold leftover breakfast items…yum.

  18. jewelz916 says:

    Because McMorons SUCKS when it comes to their rigid time schedules!!! They need to be flexible with their times to keep up with the demands of the 21st century.

  19. You can call me, 'Sir' says:

    I eat at McDonalds maybe twice a year, generally when I’m driving halfway across the country to see friends or relatives. Last week was one of those times and one morning I had a hankerin’ for a very unhealthy biscuit-based breakfast item. I left the highway at 10:30 and ordered at 10:32 only to be told that breakfast was no longer being served.

    Dream-crushing motherfuckers. The rest of the trip tasted like disappointment and hate.

  20. The Duchess says:

    That was pretty deep and profound….until it wasn’t… ;P

  21. Hilly says:

    Dude, it’s like you channeled me there for a moment but in reverse. I was like, “ooooh deep” and then uh, I was hungry!

    All I care about is the toy anyway. 😉

  22. Ha. I was really digging the soul searching in that post and wondered where you were going with it. And, of course, a fast food restaurant rant was my first guess.

  23. sizzle says:

    The final line just makes this post.

  24. Jeff says:

    Be careful what you ask for. I recently bought an egg mcmuffin right after 10:30 and they were happy to sell it to me. Of course they didn’t tell me that it had been sitting under the heat lamp for an hour.

  25. RW says:

    Happy New Year Dave. Stay sane.

  26. mew says:

    and why are they so stingy with the orange juice ! -_-

  27. I spent last year busting out of boxes and people tried to stuff me back in. Now I go to Jack in the Box, because he’s all about the box too.

  28. Kris says:

    Refraining from saying something like “you can come share my box anytime.” Because um…I do not think it means what you think it means. ;D

  29. whall says:

    This is why Jack in the Box is superior between the hours of 10:30am and, um, 5:30 or whenever the heck Mcd’s opens.

  30. trixie says:

    Come to Singapore! Breakfast is served til 11am, and delivery services are 24/7… breakfast hours start at 4am. 🙂
