I’m generally not a big fan of having my characters respond in an overtly funny way in my cartoons.
Oh, I’ll do some raised eyebrows, some puzzlement, maybe the occasional bug-eyed stare, but for the most part, my little people are placid and unfazed.
This cartoon, however, I went slightly more demonstrative. (Especially the guy in the back right.) And in this case, I think it’s totally justified.
I hope there’s an extinguisher nearby.
