You try to get ONE li’l advantage over everyone, and where does it get ya? Shot in the butt with a frozen paintball by the same punk that you just shot with one. Anarchists. Haven’t they heard the old aphorism? “Humor is when you’re shot with frozen paintballs, tragedy is when I’m shot with frozen paintballs.”

Well, it’s a bit late, yeah? But here’s today’s cartoon. Also, the Tip Jar has been tipped and we’ve got more than enough to buy you guys a couple extra cartoons in the next week or so. I hope I can find the time… I’ve also been asked why it’s been so long since I started to get the Stanky Creek book together. Some of you may remember that I’m adding new material to the book that you won’t get anywhere else. That’s got me a little nervous. I’m laying out the pages and leaving spaces for cartoons featuring more readers. When the layouts are done, I’ll have to ask again who I left out, or mis-drew, or didn’t get into their proper games for the Stanky Creek Fest (Yes, CrazyAl, I remember you’re in the Pogo Stick competition.)
Yikes. I’m way behind.
I get tickled thinking about a bunch of keyed up adults, showing off their new toys on the drive and POW! After the first paintball goes off, and everyone’s had a nice laugh, and the adrenaline starts to sour in their bloodstreams… then the second shot, then the mayhem.
I figure Durnell has to keep the hecklers at bay while he’s on stage, and probably knows a few good ways to out-talk folks. That was, at one point, going to be clarified in tomorrow’s strip, but I think it’ll be more effective to just tell you that tidbit here and go on with the story.
