A New Hope

Dangerous

Detail of 'Bug Martini' by Adam Huber, 4 May 2015.You don’t know the power of the Dark Side … do you?

Nor does Adam, it seems.

Oh, come on! Tell me this isn’t a dangerous endeavor, I dare you! All the potential crash and burn of your nastiest NASCAR fantasy, and nobody has to die, and it’s not NASCAR so that’s okay. But tell me you’re not curious. Of the myriad manners by which this can go buggy, how can you not want to be there to witness the moment some disaster falls into and then leaps out of the frame?

Or, you know, who knows? Maybe it won’t be a complete disaster.

Nobody says cartooning is easy.

We might also reflect on the proposition that this is not the worst Star Wars joke I’ve encountered in recent days. Let that say what it will.

Something You Shouldn’t Read at Work

N....S....F....WOkay, look, middle age is what it is. And with many things, it really is true that it’s not how old you are but how not old you feel.

And, yet …

… I must be getting old, despite refusing to grow up.

I mean, I’m pretty sure Erika Moen’s flip-hole cartoon is genuinely funny, but … why am I not laughing?

I mean, really, even the gratuitous New Hope joke just isn’t moving me the way it should.

I’m guessing there is a matter of perspective involved that I’m just missing. Like Wooderson raving about his car. That is, if you don’t get the underlying trope, you won’t understand why the joke is funny.

Still, though, we cannot forget the tireless dedication of our comic artists. The amount of thought and effort that goes into a joke like that is both incalculable and just a bit scary.
