A few days ago it was "Pop Muzik" by M. I found myself contemplating suicide...but I decided on pesticide instead.<P><P>------------------

You know, I had to think why that joke was still making me laugh at the end of the day. I guess it's because I was always told that "Cat's in the Cradle" was <I>supposed</I> to be a deep, meaningful folk song. But I think seeing it in that context made me realize the someone-left-a-cake-out-in-the-rain qualities that song <I>really</I> has! And, as pointed out before, when Ugly Kid Joe did a cover of it, you just know they were desperate for respectability, when in fact they were immersing themselves in a worse cheesiness than ever dreamed possible.<P>So what happened? Bob, you punctured a sacred cow I didn't even know I <I>had</I>!! And you made me mix a metaphor as well! Curses!<P>------------------

Bob,<P>Today's strip (Harry Chapin) was hysterical. I only needed to read the first frame and I started laughing my ass off. By the way, you said you don't have time to do this strip more than three days a week because of your job. What's your job?<P>------------------

It's more like I spray bullets in all directions hoping to hit something funny, and sacred cows occasionally get in the way. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif">

</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>It's a ghastly combination of telephone tech support for network hardware, intranet web maintenance, getting yelled at by jerks, and doing things that nobody really knows how to go about doing, so they make me do it. And so forth. I work for a huge computer company known by its three initials. And no, it's not MCX Computer Corporation, but that's a good guess. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif">
Also, there's a Harrison Bergeron effect that keeps me from getting even the tiniest amount of writing done whilst at work. My train of thought is constantly derailed by the phone going off (like a bomb) or something else interrupting me. It's awful.
On top of that, it takes me at <B>least</B> four hours to go thru the whole cycle of drawing, inking, scanning, lettering, touch-upping, and load-upping for a strip. When I see people talking about how they draw a whole week's worth of cartoons in a day, well, I can't help but turn chartreuse with jealousy! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/tongue.gif"><P>------------------

Now I'll have Harry Chapin running through my head all day. (Says the kid who sang that song at a third grade talent show.) <P>Oh, who am I kidding, I laughed my toenails off.<P><P>------------------

</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Our recent "A-Team" thread caused the theme song from that show to run thru [B]my[/B} head for a couple days. Still, you got the raw end of the deal...I also had to sing the Harry Chapin song, when I was in the 7-grade Mixed Chorus. And they wonder why people hate junior high school.
BTW, everybody: Sorry about where today's strip ended up, but what can I say? I just think diarrhea is funny. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/tongue.gif"><P><P>------------------
