Love Is Hard

Despite a thousand rom coms

The typical story is that it may take some time to meet the right person, and it may take a little perseverance to clear an obstacle or two. But in two hours or less, it will be done and happiness will ensue.

I get it. I love film where Good reliably kicks Evil’s ass, especially when it’s with their feet. It’s satisfying to see the world the way I want it to be. But I am quite clear that I can’t beat anyone up with my feet. I’m happy to do the yoga required to clip my toenails.

But the message we get from a lifetime of preposterous fantasies about love is a lot harder to parse. So, this Valentine’s Day, I give a nod to the Sisyphuses with a portrait of coupling that might be closer to the reality.

Inauguration Comics

Four cartoons, tossed off while I watched and cried

Wow, that was a very uncomfortably close call. I never realized how near destruction our republic was. It was well beyond my imaginings, even though I’m a world-class worst-case imaginer. I hope we right the stones to resurrect a stronger, more fair, more stable country.

For the first several months after Trump won in 2016, I truly expected to wake up from a bad dream. Four years later, it finally happened. Phew.

I wonder what horrid stories will be told to Major and Champ from the smells left behind by the previous tenants.

Speaking of smells left behind, this one’s low, I admit. It’s mean and tasteless and superfluous and beside the point. And yet here it is.

(They’re not my best drawings, but they capture a little of this day for me.)

You Can’t Spell It Without It

It’s laugh or cry, and I choose cry, but also this…

Calculating Captions

Am I this guy?

I just posted this gag panel:

But I liked the set up so I kept at it and ended up having my own caption contest. This was, perhaps, the best choice from a handful of other caption contenders.

Here are the other finalists.

I fear that I ended up being like this guy, trying to determine the most effective solution to the problem. In fact, here’s one more I thought of while typing this:
