Below is the latest The Pain -- When Will It End?
I drew this as a congratulatory
card to my friend Emily Flake, whose own comic strip began running in the
Baltimore City Paper two weeks ago. I decided to run it as my cartoon this
week because after my infamous annual Fourth of July Party, which lasted from
Wednesday night until approximately two hours ago (Monday afternoon), I am
so horribly hung over and busy trying to clean up my devastated house and
property that there was just no way I could draw an original cartoon. I am
sure Emily will appreciate the expediency of this as she faces her own weekly
deadline in similar circumstances.
As it happens, this cartoon is appropriate this week, since so many readers
have complained that they did not understand last week's John Ashcroft cartoon.
Let me say to them that you are all idiots.
