His nail biting was getting worse.

May 31, 2010

He might be crazy, or he might just be taking his iron supplements.  Maybe it’s just the ones I’ve taken, but they taste remarkably like framing nails.

The original space heater.

Not much of a drawing.  Not much of a joke.  BUT… I am very proud of that freehand circle.  Please take a second look at it so it will have been worth the four attempts it took me to get it right.

Insurance cutbacks.

May 28, 2010

My health insurance provider has been making some unfortunate changes (higher premiums etc).  As far as I know they won’t be replacing traditional post-op treatments with band-aids.

Yet.

Soccer hooligans.

May 27, 2010

I went hooligan fishing on Tuesday with a friend.  It was great.  Beautiful weather, very few people, and lots of fish.

LOTS of fish.  I’m not sure exactly how many fish my friend pulled out, but I think in the end he grabbed a few more than me.  This was impressive since I managed to get 252.

I breaded and panfried about a dozen of them for the family.  The bones are so small that they virtually cooked away.  They tasted fine, but hooligan are a “mushy” fish.  People told me this before I got them, but the idea of “mushy” didn’t bother me.

The reality of “mushy” did bother me (It was similar to breaded and panfried toothpaste).  Ick.

“Mushy” also bothered my family.

I have been informed that the remaining 240 fish are all mine.  Ick.

Pachelbel’s field cannon.

May 21, 2010

My family is full of talented musicians.  Some are gifted vocally and some with instruments.  Several of them make a successful living from these skills.  They are genuinely talented.

I am not.

In fact, my elementary school music teacher told me I sang like a “three legged cow.”  I don’t think a teacher could get away with this now, but still…

Ouch.

Long walks sideways on the beach.

Keep an eye on his hands – I’m guessing this guy also likes to goose his dates.

Not-so-easy chair.

May 19, 2010

I like this one.  You might think that I would be happy when I create a cartoon I like.  Unfortunately, this isn’t the case.  Whenever I really like one of my jokes, it just makes me worry that I’ve seen it somewhere before.
