Although careful inspection of this cartoon might lead one to the conclusion that this so-called "most powerful force in the universe" is the force of gravity, in fact this is not the case, here. The most powerful force in the universe in this case, is boredom... in a tongue in cheek sort of way. No, in a COMPLETELY SARCASTIC sort of way. Whenever I produce a great Work Of Art, there will always be some people in the audience who comment "Wow, you must have been REALLY bored!", as if I should be giving boredom some credit for my achievement. Have these people never heard of inspiration? How pitiful, that for them, the strongest motivational force that they know is something as negative as boredom. (Yes, I sometimes *have* been motivated by boredom, myself, but that's not nearly as strong a force as inspiration.)
Unlike yesterday's episode, which was drawn at the Funtime Comics meeting/workshop yesterday, this episode was drawn at the meeting/workshop that was held one month ago. The punchline ("Ah, it is Godzilloquist") is an idea that I scribbled down on a piece of paper way back in early 1998. That pun has been sitting there, festering away for over FOUR YEARS like the slab of mouldy cheese that it is (in more ways than one), and only now do I take it out of the box when it's all good and stinky, and shove it in your face. Mmmm-mmm! Would you like fries with that?
