This week’s new Dustinland comic is about soap squirts, with a subtle reminder at the end to note vote for a fascist. The thing is, after months of pandemic and political comics, I do have a backlog of just “normal” themes I want to put into the world. But… it does feel wrong to just ignore what’s happening right now. So, tahdah — best of both worlds.
This week’s Dustinland comic is about public bathrooms. It’s title “Toe Flush.” I think that says it all. We’ve all done it. But what inspired me to draw a comic about it was watching my son do it. At home. He didn’t actually learn it from me. He learned it from his mom. They were out at some dirty public bathroom and she did the old toe flush and now he tries doing it even at home. He just thinks it’s fun. He doesn’t get the concept of not wanting to touch a filthy public poop handle.
As for the caption, well, some of you may remember this classic PSA from back in the day. So there you have it.

This week’s Dustinland is about pooping and what not. Well, it’s not actually about poop. That’s really the least of it. Poop is just an excuse to barricade yourself (or myself) in a small room and be left alone for a few minutes. I think a lot of people can relate. At least men. I’m not sure if women do this or why they don’t if they don’t. I guess dudes more often fall into the “leave me alone I need quiet time” category while women more often fall into the “I want to talk about everything that happened to me today” category. A bit of unfair stereotyping there of course, so feel free to not call that out in the comment section.
This week’s Dustinland may not be the most highbrow strip I’ve ever done, however, it is very truthful, and, I’d like to think, insightful. I’m hoping my female readership can learn from this strip and come to understand that, for the most part, when a man steps into the bathroom and begins to pee, he does not close his eyes and spin around in a circle, despite what it may look like when he is done.
In other news, I will be away on bidness for a bit, so there will be no new comics next week. Fear not, however, for I will be back the following week with a super fantastic double- or even triple-sized Dustinland.
***Update: check out the fascinating pee-dialog this strip has inspired over at Reddit and a slightly less fascinating dialog here on Digg.
