Two wrongs don’t make a right. But sometimes two clichés make a decent joke. I was trying to avoid the whole “here’s a model in a dress that costs enough to hire a kindergarten teacher for a year” thing, not just because it is trite but because it isn’t funny. Likewise, the “supermodels do a lot of drugs” thing is done near to death. But put them together, and it can work I think.
UPDATE – I’ve never done this before, but the feedback was instantaneous and overwhelming. After the fear of dumbing it down on last strip, I swung too far to the side of obscurity and lost people. I have changed the strip. You can see it the old way here. Thanks for the feedback, all. As has been mentioned many times, I am usually too close to these things when writing them to tell.
