Taking a chance this week and posting a strip of which Mrs. Shoebox does not approve! GASP!
MRS. SHOEBOX’S ASSESSMENT OF TODAY’S STRIP: You scare me sometimes. This…this is one of those times.
She followed this up with a rather valid point that if you build a full-on mental picture, this is far more disgusting than amusing. I was going for the Monty Python-style “too ridiculous for the violence to be taken seriously” thing, which I hoped would be enabled by the buildup, but this certainly failed with my initial one-woman test audience. However, I thought I had something here, so I decided to seek outside opinions this time. My backup assessors (Devo Spice and our ever-glorious webmistress Sara Trice) were both amused by it, so here ya go.
For those of you who side with the missus, I assure you that my next posted comic will be one that causes her fancy to be well and truly tickled.
Why does that sound dirty? I totally didn’t even.
