death row for bugs? why is abe lincoln on the right? i had too look up countertops too.questions ...questions.... this one must be USA only.sorry Ted :/
although i cannot fully understand the strip, i still feel it is fun!
Well, instead of an electric chair, they're taking the cockroach to a bug light, to be cooked. He was caught in too many kitchens. Yeah, it's weird, pulled it out of the 'needs work' file before it was ready.I wanted to give the cartoon an antique prison feel when I first drew it a few years ago, so the guy on the right is an official from that era ready to read the bug his last rites. I still think that using a bug light to execute a bug is funny, but the set-up is still too unresolved to make sense. I'm already working on a new post and won't even bother to try to figure this one out. Thank you Tek, for the input. I value your opinion a lot.Tango: You are right to not understand this cartoon, because it's not very good, ha ha, but I think it's fun to look at also. So thank you. I will do better!
"..why is abe lincoln on the right?" -that question really cracked me up, btw. Wasn't expecting that. ha ha.
Really really funny concept, I think! You're hilarious, Ted!
Thanks Chris, I should have given the gag idea to you, I'll bet you could have made it work.I still feel that syndicate cartoonists have it easy, because they have editors to point out their fails before they get seen by anyone. I do have friends I can run these ideas by first, but they're not always available, so I push some gags through with a hope and a prayer.
Good question Tek, why is Honest Abe on the right?I like the idea, but I agree, I think it needs a few visual queues to tell us this is an electric chair for bugs. Maybe a guy throwing the switch where Abe is? A window with bars, handcuffs on the bug? Great idea though! I still listed this as hysterical.
Those are great ideas, Marcello, and I know they would help it to read better. You're a good problem solver, as usual. But I was thinking... Instead of Abe, what if Harry Truman were the guy who throws the switch? Kind of get a Cold War twist going. What do you think?
lol! Funny concept, Ted! :DAgree on Marcelo's suggestion to make it even stronger :DI still laughed when I see this one though :)
Fantastic illustration again. And I think the joke works...
I think this is great! It all works fine The color and composition are great. I feel bad for the Cockroach (and I hate those things with a passion). I agree with Tomas, joke works great! Thanks!!!
This is not the Green Mile, but the Blue one. :)
my cup of tea.....:)
