This comic doesn’t make a lot of sense. I completely acknowledge that. What inspired it was this: at the movie theatre I used to work for there were spice containers for your popcorn. You could buy a nice bag, head over to the spice area and load them down with things like white cheddar and BBQ flavours. These containers periodically needed to be refilled and cleaned.
The notable thing about them was that they were paradoxically harder to open if you tried harder to open them. They were twist-off lids. If you grabbed and wrenched they wouldn’t budge. If you adopted a light touch and a minimal amount of twist, they’d slide right open. THAT’S what I was trying to get across. Maybe I should have just stuck with trying to tell that story. Well, what’s done is done![May 22, 2011]
