My original take on this piece was a tour group going through hell and witnessing this tortured soul, and one guy in the group repeatedly mocking him a la “he’s half the man he used to be” and “he doesn’t have a leg to stand on” before finally asking about the poor soul’s sin, and being told it was making bad puns. I tried repeatedly to make this work before finally scrapping it and going in a completely different direction.
I had to run this one by both the missus and Rob to ensure that they both felt the amusement factor outweighed the potential grossout factor. They both laughed, so I’m hoping I’m okay.
MRS. SHOEBOX’S ASSESSMENT OF TODAY’S STRIP: *Chortle* That’s really gross. But awesome.
Sorry for the lateness of this one…see you soon!
