What I like about this is that I deliberately made the devastation flat; sometimes, when a tornado hits, you're lucky if anything is standing.
I have to do this. I have been known to keep socks well past their usefulness and I have shoes older than I care to admit. If I didn't stop and try to correct this problem, I'd drown in old socks and shoes.

I remember being interviewed, twice, to work at Kinkos and they never hired me. I don't think I've ever figured out why, since everyone else was pretty good about hiring me for reasons I'll never understand. Ninety percent of it is "who do you know?" The rest, you get lucky. Or, no one else applies.
Farmer Butt makes a very sly observation, but Abbott--clutching his peanut butter knife like the fierce warrior that he is, weighs in with his own very witty putdown.
It would have been nice to "finish" Nathan but I don't feel bad about minimalism; this entire comic strip is an appeal to minimalism.

This blog has never had a proper home nor has it ever really taken off or figured itself out or made a break for it. It has never stretched out and found a way to present itself without annoying people. It's blatantly awful at times. I love it for all of those reasons.
It's the collection of weird drawings that I do from time to time that pretends to be a comic strip (it's not). It's about four characters who are weird and say things that I think are funny (at the time). It's mildly amusing and I like having it out there.
Abbott and Gooseberry has been around for over twenty years in one form or another. The fact that it's in blog form is a kick in the pants. The fact that it's weird is entirely my doing. I will never stop trying nor will I ever be surprised to see it fail.
