Oddly this is based on an actual conversation I overheard at a bar in Tacoma between my mother in law and one of her co-workers. He’s a nice guy, and I talk to him at times (even showed him this strip based on him) but the dude seriously wouldn’t shut the hell up about it. I felt bad for my mother in law.
Also you will notice that Jim and Karen are just COPY and PASTED out of older strips. I was lazy and it looks good SO EFF OFF.
I also didn’t ask Jon Anderson if I could use his art to make more strips. Then again, I don’t care to. He would have said yes.
And Jon, I swear if you read this then comment saying that you wouldn’t, I’ll take back my Ricky Martin CD.
