Punchline Math

I drew this in the 80's for a syndicate submission. It was originally a Writer's Digest cartoon. I liked the joke, though the cross-hatching is applied with the grace of a sneeze. 

A few decades later, someone pointed out that five cents should be printed as .05, not .5, killing the punchline. Or .5 of it.

Here's an ad that breaks the Rule of Three. Not once, but twice.

The first, full-length commercial features four animals. 

The edited version features two. 

In a perfect world, they would have gone with the cow, the turtle, and the owl.

They also got the answer wrong. It' zero licks, one crunch.

New Site

It was bad enough when I noticed that a year had elapsed since my last blog post. It was worse when I clicked on the menu bar and the pages didn't work; as if I'd been away from the house for a long while and the windows were broken, the furniture stolen. So here I am with new windows, new chairs that look a lot like the old ones.
