It’s probably no surprise that being a cartoonist I like to joke around.
I like to tease the kids and make up outlandish answers to their questions. I lure my wife into some seemingly benign conversation only to deliver a horrible pun at the end. That’s not to say that I don’t have my serious side. I’m completely serious about humor, but I can’t help but look for opportunities for gags.
That’s how the above cartoon came about. We were eating dinner and my wife and I were discussing something when she said “can we meet halfway on this?” and I responded with this caption.
I don’t think I ended up getting my way, but I did get a good giggle from the Mrs., and a free cartoon to boot!
