Ah, show me a wisecracking teddy bear and a punchline with the word “ass” in it, and I’ll show you comedy baby! In other words, I’m a little worried that this one isn’t breaking new ground.
On the other hand, the amount I have worried that this one strip isn’t breaking new ground is forty to fifty times the amount of similar worry that’s gone into a strip like “Hi and Lois” over its entire unfortunate lifespan. Nothing ever crawled up Mr. Sunbeam’s ass and died, did it Baby Trixie?
Here’s a link that I thought was fun… Unattributed Pessimist Quotes. My favorites: “Failure is not an option. It is a privilege reserved for those who try.” and “Success is 1% inspiration, 9% perspiration, and 90% people’s response to your 10%.” Either one fits this project.
