I sent a version of this cartoon to my editor at Hyperallergic. It was lame (I already trashed it but I wish I hadn’t as I would like to have posted it here for yawl to compare!) so my brilliant editor once more asked me for more context. I was walking the dogs when I realized what I needed to do was to put myself into it, insert my inner thoughts. I know my thoughts can be judgmental but context, friends, is a package deal. Like a relationship — there is the good stuff mixed with the bad. Sorry! If you don’t put the dark stuff in you get Prairie Home Companion which is completely out of balance because there is no evil in it! I even put at the bottom of the new version of the cartoon that I am Being an asshole so that you don’t have to! Which I think is a cool thing to say. At any rate, with all this said I still got a finger wagging tisk tisk from a guy who wants to be his own asshole vs. my being it for him! Which is cool, it takes a load off ya know.

Comment: “Or just possibly it’s none of your business what they do with their hair and you should be less judgmental.”
PS The cartoon is still rather lame as it has only gotten 5 shares! Sigh…back to the digital tablet!
