A bit of a classic here out of our second book. Sadly, to re-enact this strip, I wouldn’t have to go flying here recently. I just would have had to stick the hand out of the window of my house. Today the weather is a bit better, but summer sure is coming on slowly here this year.
We have a winner for our photo contest!
Man! This was a tough contest to judge. All weekend we’ve already been racking our brains because there were so many good and funny pics. And then the late entries made it even tougher!
But there can only be one winner for this contest so we chose the photo we thought was fun, exciting, creative, crazy, and cool all in one. It’s the photo posted by CharlieAT. So, congratulations CharlieAt, you won a Silver Chicken!
Actually we liked all his photos so it was even hard to choose from within them. HOWEVER! This doesn’t mean the other weren’t great. Like I said, there were so many awesome ones that deciding this truly gave us a headache! Thank you all for participating and showing off all these great shots. I hope you guys enjoyed seeing all the entries as much as we did.
And we will have another contest very soon so don’t give up if you didn’t win this time.
This is the follow up strip to the one we posted last Saturday. But I’m afraid we might have to end the story line here and not show you how Chuck actually flies. After all, we don’t want to upset your fragile and delicate minds!
Well, technically, once you’re inside, the nose of the helicopter should point in approximately the same direction as your nose. Unless you’re flying sling loads like my brother sometimes does. I wonder, if you’re flying buckets or other stuff on the long line all day, does the company provide you with a massage therapist?
Well, it could always be worse! Actually, most of the time when life throws you a curve ball, it’s a consolation to think what worse things could have happened. Sometimes it’s a consolation to think of others who are even less fortunate than you (which is kinda cynical, but whatever works, right?). Sometimes the curve ball is so bad that there is no consolation.
But as long as it is just a damaged plane or car, it could really be worse. In this case, Julio should be happy about the increased job security!
Isn’t it funny sometimes to repeat whatever your conversation partner said? When you’re ten years old it is! When I was a kid, I loved doing this to my brother. Man, thinking back I sometimes was an annoying little brat. Didn’t notice it at that time though…
And thanks to all who entered our link contest already! Remember, you can enter until June 7th! Read more details here.
I really like the second panel on this one, especially the cat flying through the air! Standing by for fires in Nevada you can sit there on a calm day and a dust devil or wind gust come through out of nowhere. No flying cats though, that was a choice made by the artist for effect
Also note that this one of the very few times you ever see Julio without his signature ball cap.
