Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for March 02, 2002
Tom the Dancing Bug's Super-Fun-Pak Comix Edited by Ruben Bolling Metaphor Comix Naive Idealism Kid #2: My mom forgot to pack a sandwich! Man's inhumanity to man. Kid #1: I guess you got 'just deserts'! 19th century U.S. agricultural protectionism Kid #2: Trade for your corn chips? Larry and Flyin' Feet Larry: Hey Flyin' Feet! Flyin' Feet: Yes? Larry: Why does everything I say knock you over? Flyin' Feet: Must be your flying sweat! Inside-Joke Funnies Man #1: That fire truck sure is in a rush! Man #2: Unlike Jen Henkler! Huxtable the Spontaneous Human Combustible Huxtable: Thanks for inviting me on this camping trip! Huxtable: It's not because of my propensity to spontaneously combust, is it? Man: No, but just sit back a few inches. Phil O. Sophy N' Friends Phil: But how do we know we're not BRAINS in a jar... Phil: Stimulated to simulate sensory perception of an exterior world! Brain: Wow, that's a freaky thought! Dinkle, the man who always seems to lose out, despite his best efforts to be a go-getter and a productive and well-liked member of society, whose attempts to navigate his simple life are thwarted in ways that seem exaggerated and surreal, but echo our own feelings of futility and ineffectuality, conjuring in us a gentle smile of recognition (Formerly titled "Dinkle, the character whose daily one-panel cartoon must read several installments of in order to understand his basic nature, such as being too complex to be fully explained in a title") LOST and FOUND "I'm sorry your umbrella is lost, sir. But we only have things that are lost AND found. Please come back if you find it."
