Logic is no helpful if there are those who cannot see it.
This is one of those strips which has a bit of feeling behind it from me, a sad life-weary feeling which doesn’t necessarily have a place in the strip. So I make a tiny joke at it’s expense to diffuse it, but the meaning holds a bit. I hope. ;-)
Vachel ain’t fallin’ for no tricks.
This strip was actually inspired by a farmer who told my friend Anya and I that his enormous horse, Aggie, was happy to haul logs around as long as the farmer convinced her it was a game. Aggie, like all horses, was also far too cute when she ate apples.
Thank god I sleep soundly and don’t have such inspirations. I almost feel worse for Vachel that Blake.
On second thought, the glee Vachel gets in it doesn’t look TOO much like suffering.
