It’s been two months since our last visit to the magically-unnecessary land of Clipartica, so I figured it was time to return.  Plus that’s really the only way my brain would go with this piece.  Once I realized that the dots on the female diner’s chest were pupils in an angry face (and not just random chest-apostrophes as I’d originally thought,) there was no chance of me taking this strip in any other direction.  For those who love the art-mockery strips, enjoy.  For those who hate them, there will be a non-art-mockery strip going up this Friday.

My lovely wife gets co-writing credit on this one for pointing out the bread loaves and suggesting the muppet’s hunchback father.

MRS. SHOEBOX’S ASSESSMENT OF TODAY’S STRIP: And also the guy totally looks like Mel Brooks’ character in Spaceballs, if you can work that in.

(Yes, I know I’m a lucky man.)

In other news, I’m currently finishing up the new Worm Quartet album (taking pre-orders later this month if all goes well) and gearing up to help man my wife’s table for her next craft fair – Manic Metals will be representing at the 41st annual Holiday Bazaar Arts & Crafts Show, happening at the Rochester Museum and Science Center this weekend, if any of you live in the Rochester, NY area and feel like checking it out.

Oh, and the Anthrax/Testament/Death Angel show was awesome.

See you on Friday!
