Police always have to maintain a vigilant eye, so the occasional drug raid even on the most unobvious places is required.
Silly Sunday is hosted by Sandee at Comedy Plus
Two Irish men were working for the city public works department. One would dig a hole and the other would follow behind him and fill the hole in. They worked up one side of the street, then down the other, then moved on to the next street, working furiously all day without rest, one man digging a hole, the other filling it in again.
An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn’t understand what they were doing. So he asked the hole digger, “I’m impressed by the effort you two are putting in to your work, but I don’t get it – why do you dig a hole, only to have your partner follow behind and fill it up again?”
The hole digger wiped his brow and sighed, “Well, I suppose it probably looks odd because we’re normally a three-person team. But today the bloke who plants the trees called in sick.'”
I thought I’d post this page from my sketchbook which is the original inked version of the previous comic, Genie of the Beer Bottle.
Pam Huggins of Pamo’s World mentioned that she liked the vertical layout. I decided to re-work it as a vertical strip ‘cos in the original form it was too easy to glance down & see the final punchline panel before you’d read all the way through, thus ruining the gag.
I think you’ll agree that the vertical format gives a better “TADA!!!” when you get to the final panel, rather than as it was originally laid out.
The Vertical format for webcomics was discussed by Brad Perri of Pirate Mike Comics HERE & I thought it was a good way of doing it. I’ve done a few vertically in the past but most of the time I simply forget to draw them that way. Old habits die hard….
I still haven’t figured out yet whether I’ve been recruited by The Borg or by Al Quaeda as a suicide bomber. Whichever way it goes you can tell by my singlet that I’m Happy. The full writing says “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”. That’s easy to say when you have a possible explosive device strapped to your chest.
I have to sleep in all this tonight as it’s a Sleep Monitor to test if I have Sleep Apnea. Maybe it blows up if I snore too loudly…
It doesn’t feel overly comfy so I dunno how much sleep I will get. If you never hear from me again you can assume that I’ve Blown Up or Time Travelled & am now existing in the Past or Future.
I wonder if I’d stand any chance of getting through Airport Security
This is a comic I drew way back in 2011 which ties in with my current situation.
Update: It’s 3:20pm the next day now & I got home from work about an hour ago. Last night I slept anything but normally. There were more wires & tubes that I had to put on at bedtime not in the photo. A finger tip pulse monitor, an ankle strap, a nasal canular tube & another similar nasal sensor. It was terribly uncomfortable & every time I rolled over bits would stick in me or I’d get tangled in the wires etc. Went to bed at 9pm but didn’t get to sleep until about 1am as some inconsiderate mongrels further up the street had a noisy party that went till after midnight. Who has a party on a Tuesday night anyway??? Obviously not people who have to get up early to go to work the next morning. Have to wait about 3 weeks now for the results to be processed & sent back to the Doc.
I know the Superbowl 2015 has already happened so I’m a week late with this. I saw this image on Facebook & thought it was too funny not to share.
I wasn’t aware that Mavis had a Son. She’s been keeping secrets from me.
I started off this site with just Atomic Underpants, Out The Bush & The Old Codgers comics. I then added my 4 year old series 2011 A Rat Odyssey & then Bible Toons.
As I look at it all I am left wondering whether it’s all too much crammed into the one website thus making it too cluttered. Just pondering whether to continue with Rat Odyssey & Bible Toons or to delete them & stick to my main 3 comics. Especially with the lousy artwork of Rat Odyssey & my earlier Bible Toons because the home page displays the latest comic regardless of which group it’s in. Therefore I can’t help wonder if someone shows up here as a 1st time visitor & sees the poor drawing quality in the older strips could it possibly discourage future visits.
2: Comic Navigation
I am also wondering what you think of the way I have the comic navigation set up with the “regular” buttons that navigate between ALL comics in chronological order & the “In Group” buttons that move between the comics in the selected comic group only. Do you find it confusing?
Take a look at how Damien Willcox at Dorkboy Comics has his set up. I got the idea of how to organise multiple comics on a single site from how Damien did it. Although instead of the “In Group” buttons that I’m using, Damien has just the regular Nav buttons & they move within the individually selected comic groups only. If you want to look through a different comic group you have to select that group & navigate through them, or go to the archives to select individually. Do you think Damien’s way might be less confusing? I don’t wanna make it harder for people than it has to be.
Just throwing some thoughts around…
What do you think?
I’d love to hear your feedback on these matters.
