Woody & Ted: "Meeting Expectations"
Posted: Tuesday May 15th, 2007 by

Last night Taks and I went over to her brother's house to have barbeque with the family. I kindly informed them that they were now required to provide a joke idea for the comic, since I wouldn't be at home to work on an idea. The next few hours were a jumble of suggestions, 95% of which were completely blue. And the rest were things I couldn't really use because they were situational, but I made the demand and required myself to live up to it.

Today's comics extends from a suggestion made by Tak's dad, who (in my opinion) is blisteringly intelligent and has this great oversized mustache that I'm convinced actually stores off-color jokes and randomly places them throughout his commentary. Anyway, he related a situation centered in the world of investing that went far above my head, telling me that "my roomate" should just stand there with his eyes glazed over and "I" explained it. I decided to flip that particular script a little and with the mob perspective comics recently, I thought it might be a worthwhile idea to let you guys see Ted's perspective when people aren't looking.

Being committed to doing this idea left me in a spot though. I am clueless when it comes to investing. I know NOTHING and ended up staying up researching the joke until around 3am before finally settling on some "words of wisdom" from Warren Buffet, America's second richest man, that serve as the basis for Ted's marketable securities comments.

So, add my late night with my late wakeup to Taks and I working on booth items for an upcoming convention and you get one late comic that's not 100% colored and a joke based on concepts I'm completely unfamiliar with and the word "boobies". Now, if Ted could just invest in boobies... this whole thing would come together nicely.

Today's Pimpage: Woody is wearing "The Leftover" shirt and Ted is wearing an "In Case of Emergency BREAK DANCE" shirt both from Threadless.Com.
