The Skinny

In this week’s new Dustinland comic, I pretty much say all I have to say on the matter of being skinny. I mean, of course if I had to choose I’d rather be underweight than overweight. So I’m not actually complaining about that part of it. I’m complaining about the part where people think that it’s okay to openly mock someone for being skinny, even though you would never comment on another person’s weight, height, complexion etc… Actually, I bet tall people get it as much as skinny people do. You’re so tall! How do you drive a car? Where do you find pants? Sort of the same thing. Tall people, if I ever did that to you, my bad.

    Your last panel reminds me of an old Woody Allen line:

    “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach. Those who can’t teach, teach gym.”

    • Ha! Well he actually was a pretty nice guy, although clearly a bit immature. I once ran into him at a Rangers / Islanders game (only NHL match I’ve ever been to) and he invited me and me friend up to his luxury suite. His brother worked for Budweiser so it was all hooked up. Pretty impressive to a pair of 13-year-olds.
