I drew this a couple years ago when I was working a dreary desk job at an escrow firm. Due to the bleak, white-collar nature of my slavery, I had found great solace in the hastily drawn comics from Matt Groening’s early years called Life in Hell. The strips were usually messy, verbose and exactly right about how stupid and miserable existing is. Feeling such spiritual kinship with the fat old guy from Oregon who I had never met, I tried my hand at emulating the work. These are the results.

As you may have guessed, G is out of town this week and I cannot draw for balls. I drew this while G and Dallas were working on their own illustrations in defiance of my utter uselessness whenever a typewriter and/or word processor be absent. I hope you enjoy this incredibly stupid comic and promise that G will be back soon.
