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!
Comment thread is SHUT DOWN INDEFINITELY.
I'm still having trouble accepting comments but you can always pass this around the web and see what pops out.
