Okay, I’m not going to lie. I got so wasted Friday night, I took me the entire weekend to even sort of recover, and this comic is what you’re left with. I do like the idea behind it though. This whole life hack thing, it’s definitely useful at times, but like every other Internet trend, it starts to get real tired when it’s overdone. Oh great, I can open a jar with a cold chicken breast. Awesome. But the comic itself… well, let’s just say the hangover definitely hurt. And see how the words are all squiggly? I wrote the strip on the train. Yeah, a 3-hour train ride is probably not the best thing for you when you’re tried, hungover and trying to be creative, but what can you do. Man, last week it was pain killers, this week booze. Maybe next week it’ll be meth. Although in that case I would churn out not one crappy comic, but 50.
Oh and one more thing. Why 7.5? Not because I wanted to cut off that last filthy panel—although I really did. It’s because a buddy of mine told me that all these stupid Buzzfeed type web lists are supposedly more successful when they use odd numbers. So I figured, hell, how about an odd number and a half! That should be a guaranteed viral hit!
