* This starts the Stationery Marathon. It's Stationery Week because I have a crapload of comics about paper and pencils to get out. Crapload.

Holy crap, I completely forgot lol. Well that kinda sucks. Oh well I have like 3 more, I'll try to get one out tonight.
at 6:55am Jul 29
Well now I'm kinda irritated I wasted my time drawing the thing twice when I could have just copied this from a few months ago >:0

I am now laughing at your memory.
Also, since I still haven't done anything to seem a pompous ass today, and since playing the part of grammar police over the interwebz accomplishes that, I shall now correct you. Stationary is something that does not move, while Stationery is the word for paper and office supplies. Might be in interesting idea for a comic, since we all love puns and wordplay.

Office supplies at the store where I used to work were sold in the "Stationary Aisle". I never got tired of saying, "But they're all stationary!"
It was much more fun than making fun of the "12 items or less" sign in the express aisle.

First rule of teh internetz, Mike: Don't post picture of yourself trying to sit in a trash can but you can't b/c your too fat. That's what they say on all the websites. FYI, your mom saw it over an hour ago, and she is embarrassed for you.
...Lovely comix btw?

Have you read Henry Petroski's "The Pencil: A History of Design and Circumstance"?

You are second only to Gary Larson as my favorite cartoonist thanks to your declaration of love for the Dixon Ticonderoga pencil. I'm not even kidding when I say I refuse to use anything but a Ticonderoga and typically have one on my persons at all times. Although I usually prefer a Medium not a Soft because they last longer without having t be sharpened.

Wierd! For me I see a fat stuffed bear, stuffed in a street corner wastebasket... until I mouse over and get the pencil cartoon! What up with that?

That's funny, I remember my junior year English teacher and some boys in my class going on and on about Dixon Ticonderogas, 1388 HB soft. His name wasn't Watson, though...

Does any one know who cinoed the phrase It's a proud and lonely thing to be a fan ? I might be using the quote in an upcoming column and would like to credit its originator.
