This cartoon is based on a conversational running gag that had been (and still is) used by some friends of mine: Whenever one makes an "over-the-mark" joke, the rest of us mime jetpacks, announce "Jetpack Away" or "Activate Jetpack" or "Go Go Gadget Jetpack" and move off. Or, the joker does the jetpack thing while the rest of us pretend to look disgusted.
And I got in first to draw a cartoon based on this running gag! (-:\
One thing to note: When flying your Jetpack Away!TM, try not to smash into any World Trade Centers or anything. Ha ha ha! Get it - World Tr... hah..... hm.
