Meanwhile, near Prince Fraftur's castle...
I GOTTA BE MEEEEE.....I GOOOOOOTA BE MEEEEEEE.
Meanwhile, Luigi's committee deposition kept getting weirder...
Well, let me tell ya. It turns out Movable Type suffered a big snafu in coding and many, many people who depend on blog-love got aced out for the last couple of days. These things happen, I suppose. The good news is I'm all better and we can continue the party. Maestro, strike up the band!
UPADTE: If you like, we can start rating the "Say What?" dialogue entries by rubber chickens:
1 rubber chicken: Carrot Top funny (yawn)
2 rubber chickens: David Letterman funny (smile)
3 rubber chickens: Steve Martin funny (giggle)
4 rubber chickens: Richard Pryor funny ( gut-buster)
This may be harsh. Remember, there's no crying in cartooning. The comedians I chose are just a personal criteria. I'll leave it to you guys to define what a 1,2,3,4, ARBEE (rubber chicken) dialogue entry might be.
UPDATE Rubber Chickens (rb) will be doled out. What is an "rb"? See the previous "Say What" to catch up.
A little Halloween candy...

HAVE A FOOLISH DAY!
NOTE: This came from an OLD toon I did for Allen Forkum's Automotive Report. So there is a specific punchline Allen wrote for it. I'm curious to read who comes the closest...or even IMPROVING it. I'll write in the actual dialogue we used in a few days.
Avast, m' hearteys....'tis once again th' day of yawpin' like a buccaneer! Have at it, m' crew!
NOTE: The "painting" on the wall is a small illustration of mine I 'shopped in.
Shout-out to Mr. Forkum for a neat idea.
How about a little visual brain teasing? Can you come up with the imaginative (yet accurate) answer that describes each image? Go beyond the obvious!! Don't be afraid to come up with a goofy solution
And of course, there might be more than one "correct" answer if you're particularly creative. I'll give my intended answers later on Monday. Have fun!
SEPT 13...NEW NOTE: You can find my intended solutions at the 13th comment on the thread under my name.
This my entry in this week's Illutration Friday theme, "Cultivate". I thought this one had some potential for a goofy punchline. I particularly like how "cultivate" has an agrarian meaning and an art appreciation meaning.
Okay, folks...I set 'im up, you knock 'im down.
AND A VERY SPECIAL HAT TIP TO DEVON: Happy 14th, kiddo! Loves ya bigtime!
Happy 235th anniversary of the day the world turned upside down. Have a thankful, inspired Independence Day and be careful out there, y'all.
Today is national "Talk Like a Pirate Day". So have it, m' hearties.
SPOILER ALERT: CCR's "Bad Moon On The Rise" is officially off the table. Y'all are better than that!
