Ha ha. Sweet.

I was going to have a throw-away line about 'punishing your workmates, huh?' in mine, but that's awesome and so much better written than I would have handled it. Of course, images would have been nice, but as I mentioned earlier ... implication can be better than blatancy.

I figured that stick figures were going to be crap and its better with devo???s (sorry Mr P) to let them use their imagination?? The speech balloons are a kind of guide to where the characters are placed within the frame so let your imagination loose...

I absolutely love the line "if everyone smells like garlic, problem solved."

Ok here is my comic for this month, tried a few different things. Happy with some not so happy with others. Oh my added challenge for this month was to include a pirate monkey inspired by a message from Makepeace.

So I suppose it's a one handed affair, cause that hook would do a bit of damage.

To quote the great Patrick Swayze ???Ditto???
?? although I thought it was a thousand monkeys? maybe its the new Industrial Relations legislation - one monkey on a AWA can do the work that 999 once did??

Is this going to keep getting better each month or what?

Great stuff guys... I totally started reading this thread at work about two weeks ago but that first comic loaded up and it was like "WHOA NO BANANA" and I closed the window. I finally got around to reading everything just now. Voting's going to be a tricky one!

Did anyone pick up on my grammatical error and if so why did noone point it out. It was a really bad elementary mistake. I am so embarassed but if you didn't see it before too bad, fixed it now!
