Water:1 Boat:0 -Great Maritime Fails

  1. Hehe, I like how the woman is still holding onto the broken bottle. One wonders why the boat would need a glass bottom when it takes you down into the real thing!

  2. Haha!!! I don't think its really clear Ted...But I think the woman has broken the glass bottom boat with her even stronger champagne bottle...which IS funny!! Now Mauricio's comment has made me laugh!

    1. Rod, it's not clear? The ship was too heavy for the glass bottom, which shattered. It wasn't supposed to sink, and everyone is staring in horror. I wonder how I can fine-tune the gag so it reads better?

    2. Its clear Ted...I think I was looking too deeply after I read your reply to Mauricio's comment...that said, I'm still going for the strong armed woman!!!!

  4. Great laugh! And thanks for the reminder that we never really get anywhere without great degrees of trial, error, failure and fortitude.

  5. 200,000! Hehehehehe. Epic fail. Embarrassingly enough, I probably would have bought a ticket to be a maiden voyager.

    1. Further proof that this gag needs work. (the bottle didn't sink the ship, Ces) ha ha

  7. in everything there is something positive.
    -glass, does not pollute the water (at least chemical contamination)
    -perhaps will serve as an underwater aquarium, (if it was a glass without breaking)
    ha ha you can not find my funny blog ! that's very funny :))) (from mail?)

    1. I'm not sure, but I don't care, I'm already moving on to the next badly staged, poorly drawn cartoon.

    2. Not badly staged or poorly drawn!! I knew you would appreciate my joke!(I know there was never a ship and it was just a glass of water).
      You are not alone Ted,this week my water cartoon seems to have been misunderstood/misinterpreted, by various viewers and I am left wondering 'How'?' but I suppose its a good thing that we all see things differently...At least people have looked and studied the work and have bothered to comment, even if they were totally off target!!!...

  9. On the bright side, the passengers get an even *better* view of undersea life.

  10. I must admit, I also saw the 'hat' and not 'the elephant in the snake', but it does not mean anything. I think the champagne bottle was way too evident.

    1. I completely understand your misunderstanding.

      Also, from now on all Champagne bottles will be banned from future CC gags. They're just too evident.

  11. Ah, you're worrying too much! I totally got it. But sometimes I don't get it and other people DO get it. I don't think it's necessary for everyone to get every one. I love the perspective and the lines of people! Looks so great! And I love that band member with the crossed arms.

  12. Hahaha, they were so clever to make it! The next one should be paper-bottom.

  13. Ha Ha. Now don't you start too, Cindy. There is no band member with crossed arms. You mean the one that's holding the trumpet?

  14. I worried already about my (common) sense....


    .... hahaha the helicon is extraordinary :)

  15. 200.000 tons!!!I don't think a little bottle was the problem
    but it is funny in both ways :)
    I'm not sure I would buy a ticket for a ship named Goliath..it is probably not a good sign.

  16. Hopefully the S.S. David will be able to see it!

  17. Lol - love the joke and I love how much expression and feeling you have captured in everyone of your little figures even though they don't have features, their posture & mannerisms say it all! I enjoyed going around them all to see what they were doing.
    Your a master comedic illustration Ted!

  18. :D. Tons of fun on this one! And reading some of the earlier replies, I got the gag right off the bat. :)

  19. Nice work! I thought that the gag would have worked without the sign, as it's irony enough. Keep up the good work.

  20. Great job, Ted. If I had an idea like that I am sure I would have problems creating the whole image. You did it perfectly: the best point of view and a great drawing delivered the idea right away. I love this cartoon.

  21. This one's great!

    A bit heavy huh?
