Application to Dream: Rejected


So, yeah! Sixth birthday! I know I say this every year, but who would have thought I’d still be doing this comic for this long? And yes, I really did not come up with any good birthday surprises this year. I might crack a fun site-related thing out this summer, and in the meantime, how’s this for a Birthday Present: I’ll keep making comics, and you keep chuckling and commenting on them and telling your friends and family and even random strangers about this site! Deal?


Once again I’d like to personally thank all the people who’ve said nice things and passed the site around, and who continue to read and (sometimes, hopefully) chuckle at my drawings. Here’s to another year!

I really like “What Are We Voting On” guy in panel 2. Here is this person who saw some people about to vote on a thing with cards, so he sidles into the lineup, because who doesn’t like voting with big cards? Moments later he realizes that there might a serious issue at stake, but he doesn’t want to distract the others with questions. So, he takes the time to write out an entire sentence on his card rather than potentially vote the wrong way.

Is he a hero for spoiling his own ballot in order to help facilitate the democratic process for others? Answering that question is an exercise I leave to you, dear reader. [June 2, 2011]
