What are the haps my friends

July 24th, 2006: The latest page of Dr. McNinja features a familiar poster in the background. You may remember it from earlier comics! Thanks to everyone who emailed me about this!

You guys seemed to like the behind-the-scenes look at the mind of an INTERNET CARTOONIST DUDE in the last post, so here is another installment. Last night I emailed someone because the Miss Universe competition (which I was watching ironically HONEST) reminded me that I hadn't emailed them for a while and actually owed them a reply. That person is Jorge Cham of Piled Higher and Deeper. He is a man and I don't even know what he looks like, but in my mind, apparently all it takes for me to go "Hey! Jorge Cham!" is the sight of tall women in makeup walking in circles, smiling endlessly.

So anyway, if you're a tall woman in makeup who likes to walk in circles and smile endlessly, then maybe we shouldn't ever date, because I'll always be thinking of somebody else when you're around! I'm sorry baby!

YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?

One year ago today: totally totally pooched
