Balloon Bust


Poor Penrod porcupine. All he wanted was a big balloon he could run with all day.

The Illustration Friday word is 'return'.

  4. Aww! That is terribly sad. And funny. But mostly sad. Look at his little face! I just want to hug... er, nevermind.

  5. aw, poor little guy! you have a great knack for these ironic/sad vignettes, Ted. It's as if you see an object or situation and think to yourself, how could this situation be more sad, silly or nonsensical. A true talent!

  14. Hahahahah! Oh I hate the sound of popping balloons. I think there is a phobia for that.

    Ssssshhhhhhhhhh!!! Don't blow my cover. Hahahah!!! I am using the html code of my summary posts to feed my gallery profiles. Don't trip on your way to my blog by coming back and forth. Just go here: http://adorio.blogspot.com/. That is my blog gallery that gets update every two or three months and no comments!!! It was supposed to be for Google plus but I can't stand the "circle" thing.

  19. Hehehe... very funny cartoon. Never mind Penrod... looks like you have a bright future as a Balloon Buster. Think of all those kids' birthday parties! School Fetes! At the end of the day, someone has to bust the balloons. Who ya gonna call?
