happy new year (chinese style)!


well, the perhapanauts classic comic cover challenge is officially over and, hopefully, everyone should be receiving their hats soon. well, maybe not christian. he moved and didn't tell me...
but i do, once again, want to thank everyone who participated in the challenge--for your time and your talent!
and thanks too to everyone who looked at them! good lookin'!
that was fun. we should do that again sometime...

in the midst of all the hubbub and excitement of our perhapanauts classic comic cover challenge, i received this happy new year greeting from uriel that i i am thrilled to share with you all...!

May the sun shine all day long
Everything go right and nothing go wrong
May those you love bring love back to you
And may all the wishes you wish come true

when i thanked uriel and checked to make sure it was cool to post it, he replied...

"Sure, no prob, feel free to use the image as you like. Don't worry about posting later, since traditional Chinese festivities don't officially end until 17th.
By the way, this is year of the metal (or white or golden) rabbit. Also, while in European cultures it's said that you can see a man on the moon, East Asian see a rabbit."

thanks, uriel! beautiful job!


and here, for no real reason except that i found them funny, are a couple of jokes i picked up along the way...

An Amish boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move
apart and then slide together again.

The boy asked, "What is this, father?" The father, never having seen an elevator, responded, "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life. I don't know what it is."

While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady struggled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened, and
the lady walked into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially. They continued
to watch until it reached the last number, paused, and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Finally, the walls opened again and a gorgeous
24-year-old blonde woman stepped out.

The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son......
"Go get your mother."

A man walks into the bedroom with a sheep on a leash and says...

"Honey, this is the cow I make love to when you have a headache."

The wife, lying in the bed reading a book, looks up and says, "If you weren't such an idiot, you'd know that's a sheep, not a cow."

The guy replies, "If you weren't such a presumptuous bitch, you'd realize I was talking to the sheep."

i feel like i've been shovelling non-stop for the past two and a half months, so i needed something to make the snow look funny...


i know we're tryin' to do a family show here, but this was just too f#%&in' funny...!
i'll take two boxes of thin mints and a samoas, please.

that's it for today!
smell ya later~!

Too fcuking funny.

Speaking of funny, I very much enjoyed your recent take on the Secret Wars in the Super Hero Squad Spectacular. Great job, Todd, as you obviously had as much fun writing it as I did reading it.
