Bright Life

Bright Life - Mimi & Iffy comic by Robert Burton Robinson

Comic Transcript

Panel 1:
Iffy is holding a compact fluorescent bulb in one hand and a fluorescent tube in the other, showing them to Mimi.
He says: I just replaced all of our fluorescent light bulbs and tubes with LEDs.
Mimi says: Why?

Panel 2:
Closeup of Iffy is holding an LED bulb, staring at it intently, mesmerized by its beauty.
He says: Because these babies cost less to operate and they can last up to 17 years. They may outlive me.

Panel 3:
Later, Mimi is sitting in her living room chair, reading her phone. Iffy is walking by.
She says: But, Iffy, there’s a new laser bulb coming out soon. They last twice as long as the LED’s, and cost half as much!
Iffy, fuming, says: What??!

Panel 4:
Mimi and Iffy are face to face.
Mimi grins and says: Just kidding.
Iffy frowns and says: Oh, that was cruel, Mimi.
Cruel.
