Hey, folks. I couldn't FTP last night, and I woke up late this morning. I'm either going to get my wife to FTP yesterday's comic today or I'll send them both this afternoon when I get home from work.<P>Sigh. I'm SO stretched beyond my means here. I'm trying to build up a buffer of comics, but that means I need a lot of funny things (or at least things that could be converted to funny) to happen to me.<P>--Strange/Dave<P>------------------

Well, I'm still a day behind, but I really like the strip that will appear as Wednesday June 6. It's not so much that it's the funniest joke or even the best artwork that I've ever done -- it's that the technique to get there was new for me and proved very effective (albeit startlingly time-consuming).<P>Ten points to the first person who can name all the cameos on the fridge. Then again, they're really teeny and poorly done, so twenty points.<P>--Strange/Dave<P>------------------

Sweet. Now I can make a "cameos" section on my page. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>------------------

I can make out Boxjam and Junior, and I think the two on the far left are Aylee and Sock (from The Necronomicon), with Phil on the far right. Penguin was hard to figure out but I can see him there now; I have yet to go through the Todd and Penguin archives, or else I'd probably have gotten it more quickly.
The one below Penguin and the one on the lower door I can't figure out. They must be from strips I don't read. Either that, or I'll just feel really foolish later.<P>How is it that Bob's not on there, anyway? If ever someone deserved a fridge cameo, it'd be him.

I'll give you guys some leeway, actually, and Lummox, if you want to revise anything you can (but you don't <i>need</i> to if you don't <i>want</i> to).<P>Some of the drawings are SO BAD that I'm accepting multiple answers. The three in the middle and the one on the lower right are specific. The one in the upper left has two possible answers; the one in the lower left has two possible answers; the one in the upper right has three.<P>The one on the lower door is not actually part of the game. Sorry. I should have mentioned that before. That was supposed to be Jackson, but I ran into problems trying to draw him. One: the combination of pen, scanner, program I use won't accept thin lines very well, so all cameos were mouse-drawn. Two: my mouse sucks. Three: it was 11:30 at night. I meant to be done by no later than 11:00. So that's a very, VERY distorted picture of Jackson. The freezer section alone is for the game. And there's no prize for this, since later posters can guess earlier posters' answers with no penalty. The haiku "contest", however, will be ending shortly, with a winner to be determined by my lovely wife, Ann. (Not only is she an English teacher and therefore qualified to judge poetry, but she took several years of Japanese and is therefore qualified to judge haiku.*)<P>--Strange/Dave<P>*<FONT SIZE="1"><RANT>Please note that I am not implying <I>all</I> English teachers are qualified to judge poetry. Lord knows most of mine from college weren't. Anyone who can read the phrase "where the cowflops lie" in a poem in the same breathy, artsy-fartsy voice that a preschool teacher would use to describe rainbows to wide-eyed lads and lasses needs to either lay off her meds or watch a Tarantino flick. Thank you.</RANT></FONT><P>

Haven't read through all of the Todd and Penguin archives yet?! What the hell are you waiting for? An invitation?! Come on already, come...come to the darkside....embrace the Penguin....<P>~dave<P>by the way: Thanks, Other-Dave for the cameo. I would guess the others, but my screen res is set so that the pics look like REALLY tiny.<P>------------------

No prob, <strike>Todd</strike>~dave! Penguin is one of my favorite characters. Then again, I have a weak spot for penguins. And other black and white animals. It's odd, really, but any animal that's completely or mostly black-and-white, I tend to like more than other animals.<P>Birds are usually another story -- I love hawks and parakeets (how's that for a combo?) but penguins are definitely in the top three. I'm looking forward to guesting for ya.<P>--Strange/Dave<P>P.S. -- it's not just your screen res. Those ARE really, really tiny pics.

I had a feeling the one at the bottom might be Jackson, but I was thinking it wasn't and so I was trying to figure out which character from another strip it might be.<P>Lummox JR<P>------------------
