Wait. He Volunteered For This?

Hedge09012018This makes me laugh. Mostly because I forgot I wrote it. So when I saw it this morning it seemed new.

The Purpose Driven Squirrel

Over the Hedge

I don’t think of what I do as work.  It’s much, much worse.  It’s a passionate obsession.  Which sounds cool until you’ve ever actually had one.  Joan of Arc was passionately obsessive and look what happened to her.    I write (and sometimes draw) not because I want to, but because I HAVE to.  I have to do this because just occasionally  you come up with something really, really good.  And that feeling is more powerful than any drug.

It’s like pushing a large boulder up a hill and 97 times out of 100 you slip and the boulder flattens you.  But those 3 times when you succeed it feels so amazing.   So amazing NOT to have the boulder flatten you.

I don’t work.  I engage in a futile struggle for comedy perfection in which I am statistically doomed to fail.

Are we having fun yet?

No.

The clunky headline above is an experiment in site optimization.  A lot of the visitors to this blog are casual surfers who stumble in from search results or reddit, digg, etc.   If there’s any residual interest in this story (and I admit we missed the party by a week or so), maybe we’ll attract some interest with a tag-laced headline .

Lord of the Damp

Over the Hedge

I’m now aware, thanks to a comment on comics.com, that this week’s story line is similar to the Twilight Zone episode, “The Little People.”   An astronaut lands on a planet of tiny humans.  They think he’s a god.  He obliges and ends up going all Old Testament on their asses until he’s staked down a la Gulliver’s Travels by the other GIANT human inhabitants of the planet.  

Now I probably saw that episode a million years ago and maybe it’s buried down in my sub-conscious along my first date (7h grade dance, she abandoned me as soon as we arrived) and that 1980 Baylor vs. Texas football game where I mixed beer and chewing tobacco to spectacular reverse-ingestion projectile effect.   

And so what if I did see the episode?  This is how the sausage is made.  A little of this.  A little of that.  And a little of this and that from you’d rather not know where. 

The whole lording-over-the-diminutive-and-powerless isn’t even original to Rod Serling.  I mean Rod ripped off, well…   Continue reading
