Our Absurd Life: 04/13/22 – Flabber-GAS-t’d


Hola Night Owls & Early Birds

I hope everyone had a great day!

Tonight’s cartoon took some time to come together.  

It started when I came up with a funny (at least I thought it was funny) name for a diet soda: “Spectacular Nothing.”  But upon conducting some online research I discovered this name was already taken by a music group.  The name “Zip” was also taken.  So I scrapped the names and had to think of another–hopefully funny–name for a diet soda.

And through this process I expanded on the joke with a new punchline.  I think the final outcome is ultimately stronger than my original plan.

Until mañana . . .
