Boo…!

Eh. I tried to combine a picture of a weasel with a picture of a sulky toddler. It didn’t work out so good.

Reminds me of when I were just a lass and I had a new job as an illustrator for an engineering company. A boiler engineer asked me to draw a cartoon of a boiler with a stomach ache. I did my best.

His reaction was, “no, no…that’s a boiler with a headache.”

The worst part was, I knew exactly what he meant and he was right.

So anyway. First day back to work tomorrow. There’s nothing too onerous waiting for me, it’s just the idea of the thing.

I’m going to go take a long, hot soak in my expensive Christmas bath goo and ponder, for the umpty-umpth time, why I was not born to wealth.

Oh come off it! Yeah, you were not “born to wealth”. But you married into it. A wealth of love, that is. And that is surely more than any SJW has…

If’n you’d like to look for some illustrations of inanimate objects in pain, nauseated, etc., check out PS Magazine (the Preventive Maintenance Monthly).

It has all sorts of sick equipment, some with headache ice bags, tongues hanging out, etc.
ps ://digital. library. vcu.edu/digital/collection/psm

For direct from the source, the URL is
ps ://www .logsa .army.mil/#/psmag
but I don’t think they go all the way back to 1951.

Corporal Will Eisner started the illustrations for PS, and was joined by many others.

Another good source of info (with a good intro page) is
p://psmag .radionerds. com/index.php/Main_Page

Add back in the htt and take out the spaces and the links should work. Otherwise, just do a search for PS Magazine.

Deborah called it – peeved weasel!

Your lose is our gain! If you were rich you’d be taking bikini selfies in Dubai while Uncle B hovercycled around before you both went for another evening of hob nobbing with the Nobs.
And we’d have to find some other joint to deploy our imaginary internet friend botness!

You don’t look like that when you fart, Bruno?

Oh come on now, Stoatie! You know full well that he is contorted somewhat in order to be able to light them properly!

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
