  2. That’s true, though I’m still very much a capitalist at heart.

  3. I like the last frame. Hypocrisy! I love it 😀

  4. Thanks, though you made the first three frames jealous until I reminded them they played an integral role in the success of the gag. The first three frames are like the offensive linemen of four panel cartoons.

  6. That’s cuz the plant is still hanging onto events that happened when he was a seedling!

  7. If it wasn’t for cartooning, we’d all be unemployed cartoonists… that’s an old soccer joke that doesn’t really translate, sorry.

    Great stuff, anyway. Thanks for your comment on http://richardsmyth.wordpress.com/. I’m a big Pink Panther fan, but actually I hadn’t noticed the (now obvious) similarity with Clouseau… I’m now a bit embarrassed by it…

    I wouldn’t be, everything is influenced by something else, the genus of the word “original” is “origin”. I like your quote, very funny and topical. Thank goodness for cartoons!

  8. aaak!!! Meowkats…you brought back a bad memory. I was actually sitting in a training class where the trainer kept saying “Be a Duck” in reference to not letting things get to you. She literally said we should “Be a Duck” and shake our tail feathers like a duck to “get things to roll off our backs”

  9. I have heard that metaphor as well about the unflappable nature of ducks, yet, in their anthropomorphized state they are quite spastic (Daffy, Donald), and sometimes meglomaniacal (Uncle Scrooge). That must be what they call “comedic irony”.

  10. This one is great on so many levels. It satisfies a very irritated part of me that rolls my eyes at these people on a constant basis. No one knows it all, but people sure like to think they do!

    Down with the is-ness!

  11. Thanks! You have such good taste in cartoons. Actually, from what I’ve seen of your photography, cooking, poetry, reading, and composition, you just have good taste in general!

  12. I suspect it was an unfulfilled deer that ran into the side of my brother’s car on Christmas. What would Mr. Sweatsuit say to that?

  13. He would say that the deer brought your brother closer to enlightenment!

  16. Thank you for the good taste comment! I love your comments on my blogs, they are so much more interesting than the typical “Nice blog” stuff and you always point me in a direction for more things to enjoy.

    Enjoying the new cartoons and it is so nice knowing you post these nearly everyday. Something to look forward to!

  18. heh, I like your comics. Quite original. It’s refreshing to see comics that aren’t using just rehashed ideas.
