I love jokes like this, that write themselves. I originally had him hitting Blake with a snow shovel because the thin light metal has a good “twang” noise to it. And then I was thinking, well, Ted would take it away from him (for using it meanly) — and it occurred to me that nobody really WANTS a snow shovel, they merely NEED them to do grueling work, so it would be pleasurable to give it up.
Ah, i adore writing.
Too often I have found myself being “moral,” and then in the same situation understanding the challenge. Although, for Vachel, I’mnot sure that saying “no” is much of a challenge.
Sometimes when someone is so determined to crash and burn, it’s hard to chime in and stop them.
Hey, for animal lovers out there, in case you didn’t know, the shark industry has gotten way out of hand. And the shark fin trade in California represents about 85 percent of the total U.S. shark fin consumption. So, the California senate passed AB 376 will would BAN shark finning there IF Governor Brown signs it.
Gov. Brown OF CALIFORNIA will likely make his final decision on Wednesday, so if you want to help push this forward, there is something you can do:
CALL 916-445-2841, OPTION 1 for English, and OPTION 6 to reach a representative. PLEASE ASK GOV. BROWN TO VOTE YES ON AB 376 to BAN shark finning in California.
This strip totally stems from my child’s-eye imagination. I know growing up, every “jump” I was going to hit when sledding was going to propel me up and out like a rocket.
Reality was a lot smaller, shorter, and landing with a larger whump.
