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.
12/13/07: The Dorm of the Deaf Dustinland made it to No. 3 on Reddit.com today. Big thanks to the star of the show, Jan-Karl. And from a quick check around the web, it seems the strip was mostly well-received in the deaf community, so that’s good. Here’s some fanmail:
Dorm of the Deaf is so effing funny! I myself am deaf and I just laughed my ass off. I apologize for the majority of inconsiderate deaf pricks. Thanks for making my day! That comic is spreading like wildfire thru the deaf community. I’m from RIT and it’s the talk of the campus or so to speak. Thought you would like to know that other people are appreciating it as well.
