Elephant shirt sizes.

July 11, 2010

I’m sure elephants are very aware of their own differences in size, but they all look the same to me.


Evil eye.

I have spent over 5 months posting on this blog.  In that time I have learned several things about myself.  Things like the fact that I think any drawing is funny if it has a mustache.


The 100th post!

July 8, 2010

Time for some (more) blog stats!

  • Total number of posts = 100
  • Days since blog began = 157
  • Total number of drawings = 122
  • Most visitors in a single day = 140
  • Different visitor countries of origin = 33  (United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Brazil, Malaysia, Russian Federation, Taiwan, Belgium, Hong Kong, Pakistan, Turkey, Romania, Israel, Australia, Vietnam, Thailand, Republic of Korea, Singapore, New Zealand, Indonesia, India, Greece, Argentina, Philippines, Denmark, Algeria, Italy, Columbia, Jordan, Lithuania, Ireland, Austria)
  • Most popular search terms that direct visitors to this site = “static electricity” and “very old man” (I posted two cartoons on these subjects in February.  Click here to see them.)

Over a dozen varieties of both “static electricity” and “very old man” have brought many, many visitors to this blog.  One or the other of these phrases bring at least one new person here almost every day.  If you are here today searching for static electricity or very old men (or both) today is your lucky  day!


He had a reputation for being a bit of a hot-head.

My wife chopped off about 14 inches of her hair this past weekend.  We now have two small children and she simply doesn’t have time to deal with it.  She looks good with the new style AND it’s less of a fire hazard.

Definitely a win-win.


English Muffin.

When I was in college, I worked with a woman from England.  She was a wealth of information for me on all things British.  One thing in particular has stuck with me.  If you speaking to someone from the UK, never EVER call those little pouches that belt around the waist a “fanny pack.”  It is apparently quite offensive.

According to her, she grew up calling them “bum bags.”  Ugh.  Frankly, I’m embarrassed either way.
