Ask a Carny III

click for comic

Does it count as a recurring bit if I only revisit it once every three years? Either way, here’s 2008’s version. The first one was lost in the Great Shitty-Comics-That-Embarrass-Me purge when I redesigned the website in 2008.

Headed to the Brockton Fair this coming weekend to watch some cars smash into each other and look at gross things in jars, possibly while drinking shitty beer from a plastic cup and dropping my R‘s. I may bring a camera and file a report from the front lines of my hometown for you dearly neglected Big Fat Blog readers, so check back for that, and hopefully Friday’s cartoon will be on time and already up by then.

  1. Actually, this sounds like something that’d make a great recurring character/topic. You wouldn’t be the first cartoonist to do it.

    What makes this especially funny is that most of the Carny’s answers actually make some sense, in a way. “Hire a bunch of drunks to tear it down in the middle of the night”? Fuckin’ ay, man. Who needs lawyers?

  2. He must be the president of the carnies. He’s so clean looking, and has all of his teeth, apparently! But no spider-web tattoo on either elbow? That seems a little far-fetched. Any implied criticism aside, though, I love the way the fence neighbor guy seems like he is a dog-bark away from apoplexy.

  3. Mike – I plan on doing it every summer now, since I need a few formulaic things to keep up with my schedule.

    Punk Rock Grampa – Tattoos and missing teeth would be appropriate, but I am too lazy to draw all those details.
