Numbers Look Great, But There’s a Catch

cartoon7142

I normally run ideas past my wife before drawing them up, but this has been a crazy busy year for both of us and lately I don’t always get her opinion.

So after work one night I showed her the cartoons I’d done that day and she read this one.

She looks up at me, looks back down, and looks back up with that “I’m confused but I’m trying not to hurt your feelings” look, smiles, and waits for me to comment.

Listen, I know this is a weird one, but for whatever reason it makes me laugh. It was inspired by that old Twilight Zone episode where everyone had those weird pig faces. Apparently that’s the cost of the gypsy deal they made for their skyrocketing sales.

Sometimes you just do them for yourself.
