comparing, say, a major airline to an extinct species has taken some of the mirth outta today's doodle.
on the other hand, dead people would indeed promote dental hygiene.
especially if they're dead long enough for the facial skin to be gone and ya got those skeleton choppers grinnin' at ya.

Since the shoulder angel and devil were both advising relatively "bad" things, it reminded me of this picture of magician Ricky Jay, whose fantabulous show I saw just last night.

That creature in today's Doodle lived so long ago that his bones were found in the same archeological dig as Hydro's high school yearbook!

Gotta check with the better half - we're leaving for a Memorial Day road trip Saturday morning, and I have to make sure it's alright for me to go carousing Friday night.

She got me some of those cool non-repro blue pencils so I can draw the first draft of the doodle and don't have to erase anymore, and she did it without me even asking her to.

Speaking of the better half.

I never post here, and by "never" I mean it in the obscure sense of "only when I feel the urge to congratulate the use of Boxjamina."

'member the one with all the funny laws?

The WaPo has an article about 'em:

(registration required, I think)

BoxJam. A head of his time.

Maybe that should be ahead. I dunno.

a,
if we actually do end up going out, it's possible someone would screw up and invite you.
but not necessarily me.

it appears to be the original pooner.

so how long do you think before the statue he describes shows up in the doodle?

actually, i can see it perfectly, drawn in boxjam's inimitable style.

I never get tired of God comics.

BTW, for ragged lines and unmatching backgrounds, FTDO recommends going fully digital with Wacom:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5204436246

FTDO has no recommendations for not running out of ideas. Aye, there's the rub. Fortunately, you seem to not have this problem.

Good one, bup. I used "G-d was drunk" last year when I had to explain Hydro to my kids after the Paul Palmer Invitational.

Hey, it's good to see someone other than Aquaman getting picked on.

I could pretty much buy Superman jumping real hard to fly, but I always had problems with his stopping and changing direction mid-air.

Yeah, too bad it's about my worst coloring job ever. Man those yellows suck.

Anyway, Flash, I think, really could fly, ignoring all the problems they always ignore with friction heat when you're moving that fast.

Hey teenidol, is anything at all the same in DC since I left? If so, let's do that next month when I'm there (7/16-7/23).

Certainly the White House is still in the same place. And you definitely rate an invitation to that august residence based on the excellence of today's Doodle.

I'm sure Teenidol will wait outside for you ....

Hey Antoine -

hydro put a dollar on the table last time I saw him, thinking that might cause you to show up.

Didn't work.
