No matter what pigeon hole you fit in, pretty much every human on planet earth unanimously agrees that 2020 sucked really bad. I imagine some of you are still praying for that giant asteroid to wipe us out once and for all. I can almost sympathize, but honestly I just want to get through this and get on with my life.
Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been doing all this time while I’ve been on hiatus. First of all, I’m not sure I’m actually back, and second of all, I’m not sure I’m ever going to answer that question to anyone’s satisfaction. Truth is, I just got an overwhelming feeling of burn-out, and taking all that time off didn’t exactly lift that feeling. It’s not limited to maintaining Flush Twice either.
Although, full disclosure, I did do a significant amount of work on mBlip. I literally rebuilt it from scratch in order to get rid of a glitch that I could never track down. It has been four years, and mBlip is really coming along nicely. Aside from that, I really haven’t done a whole lot.
Do I have any idea of where I am going with any of this? Not a clue. But I figured I’d touch base and get the user submitted jokes queued up for publication since that mosquito joke has got to be getting more than a little old at this point.
About Today’s Comic
The last few years I’ve been featuring ol’ Ben (in the yellow shirt) on the New Year filler panel in a sort of “Father Time” role, and Marshal (a different character) was supposed to represent the “Baby New Year” with the joke being that neither actually wanted to do it. Tyler (the shirtless one) has a history of shunning clothing, but will begrudgingly put on flip-flops and a tank top on most days. Since the “Baby New Year” is often portrayed wearing only a diaper, Ben assumed Tyler was filling the role this year.
Wow… Did I just explain the joke?
OK, well that’s wraps up this week’s comic. Hope you like it, because it might be a couple more weeks before I do another one.
And no… I have not caught “The Rona”. I don’t actually have any friends, so my social distancing is pretty much bullet proof.
