Easily Distractible

It’s amazing that we don’t already have a portable subject changing device. We can put a man on the moon, but we can’t make a device that’ll keep me out of trouble with my wife. Who, by the way, is looking very beautiful today, in case she’s reading this and is still frustrated with me.

See, I really could use that device.

Dan posted a terrific new strip yesterday at Edmund Finney’s Quest to find the Meaning of Life. You should check it out.

The word for the day, boys and girls, is collaboration. Mr. Long and I spent many of the world’s limited supply of precious email messages making sure that the text for today’s strip flowed correctly. Luckily for me Dan has the qualities that I consider necessary for great collaboration. The list of qualities is long, and at the top is the strength to resist calling me more than three bad words in any one email. It’s actually a lot harder then it sounds.

I’ve actually been quite fortunate to have really good collaboration with Paul and all the artists who have had their characters in WAH. It’s still hard to believe that artists will bring about the destruction of our society in the year 2378, but you can’t change the future.
