A Wittle Bit Sick

This week’s Dustinland was inspired not by one particular couple, but by the shared experience of many, many couples I know. Makes sense though. Kids are young, have no immunity, they eat dirt and stuff, they get sick a lot. And then they get you sick. Pretty straightforward.

Aside from that, panel 4 compares Gwar to David Bowie, not in the musical sense, but in the sense of: Who would you rather have on your side in a fight?

And that tiny copy between the panels? That’s kind of a nod to the old Dustinland strips back during my Binghamton University days. I used to always write in those little spaces. You may not be able to read what it says online since it’s so small, so I’ll tell you: “I know: Don’t drive and call. I only drew this for the sake of storytelling. So zip it, hippie.”

A Modern Diet

Okay, I know what you’re all thinking about this week’s comic: What happened to the plastic covering that was on top of the sandwiches in panel 1?

Really though, the crazy thing is that everything that homeless guy says in this comic is pretty much true, and I actually do try to eat that way, as exhausting as it may seem sometimes. Basically, you can eat whatever you want whenever you want, however, it’s better to eat truly healthy organic food as often as possible, since you’ll get more nutrients and fewer chemicals. So you don’t have to be a nazi about it, but it’s worth the extra money to eat better—if you can afford to that is. Think about it. You’re putting stuff into your body. That’s probably the one time you don’t really want to cut corners, even if it’s cheaper.

That being said, it can be pretty ridiculous sometimes.

Jobs

Okay, sure, this is not a very appropriate comic. It’s a bit crude. A bit dirty. But sometimes I think about these major issues and it seems unfair that people can be so wrong and yet face no punishment, even once the truth has been proven. Most of the time, a pretty decent percentage of people take a look at an issue, quickly see how it benefits them in the immediate future, and make a decision based on that. No thought of tomorrow, no considerations of anyone else. Well, there should be some ramifications, don’t you think? It’s the same idea behind forcing pro-war people to join the military. If you think it’s such a great idea, sign up! This is a bit different, but obviously I’m just trying to make a point here. Although really, I think it could have saved us from a lot of trouble over the years. You know, if we could figure out the logistics of it all. That would definitely be pretty tricky.

Famous Cats: Behind The Scenes

I might as well jump on the Internet cat bandwagon now while it’s still going strong. Some say the trend will never die but I think there has to be cycles. Right now we’re in a pretty heavy cat cycle but it has to peak eventually. Or does it…

Heroic New Year’s Resolutions

Not too much to say about this one. Just starting the new year out with some lighthearted silliness before I get back to all the doom and gloom I’m known for. But hey, who knows, maybe this year will be a great year and I can just draw comics about boobs and farts and year. Oh wait, it’s an election year. I guess I’ll still be writing about a bunch boobs but in a different capacity.
