this one demands the words accentuate, not guide the image because the cartoon is self-actualizing ("I'm attempting to circumvent the ridiculous luggage restrictions imposed by this airline!!!!!!") and is not only not funny but doesn't really reward deeper thought.
so you kinda got to make it quiddy i think.

Part of what is irritating me about this one is that the positioning of the other passenger makes no sense to me visually.

haha n/a I had the same thought about the hats, especially since three of them look like identical knit caps in different colors

It's true! The whole point is that he's supposed to be cramming as much stuff onto the plane as possible, and yet he winds up wearing extra hats and socks so he can for no apparent reason fit his own body into the suitcase. Christ what an asshole.

Advanced Uncle Meat recovery system (Dan Peterson), Tuesday, 8 May 2012 20:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

the lady in front appears to be wearing a shyguy mask, and the seats behind them are unoccupied, and his seatmate's legs appear to be missing, and one arm appears to be dislocated. there's so many things weird with this cartoon.
