Your story of the fish was on my dash and I hopped over an hour ago to tell you good job with that fish, and then got lost scrolling through your blog. Good stuff! :D Hope you have a great day/night whatever it is wherever you are.

Thanks! I’m on the west coast of Canada. I actually have really good news re. the fish: I have a friend with a large, filtered, garden pond with a few other fancy goldfish in it and we’re going to take them there! I’m really excited about it!

Malcolm [X] was one of the most beautiful and one of the most gentle men I met in all my life. He asked the boy a question which I now present to you: If you are a citizen, why do you have to fight for your civil rights? If you’re fighting for your civil rights, that means you’re not a citizen. In fact, the legality of this country has never had anything to do with its former slaves. We are still governed by the slave codes.

There is a loneliness that can be rocked. Arms crossed, knees drawn up, holding, holding on, this motion, unlike a ship’s, smooths and contains the rocker. It’s an inside kind—wrapped tight like skin. Then there is the loneliness that roams. No rocking can hold it down. It is alive, on its own. A dry and spreading thing that makes the sound of one’s own feet going seem to come from a far-off place

There are many other differences between the two that are not covered by this comic - for example, humour is ultimately controlled (like everything else) by the society we live in, so some things will fall flat as a piece of “dark comedy” because they resonate too closely with society’s discomforts or issues. Nothing exists in a vaccum, and free speech is not an excuse to make people view your artwork is if it does.

Humour isn’t as simple as you’d think! It’s a complex thing and can be difficult to understand, and if you are interested I reccomend researching popular dark comedy movies and series and expanding your knowledge!

Thank you.

which fucking fedora wearing friendzoned nerd made this thing

yeah but notice that the seal’s intent is to eat those fish and the shark offers a mutually beneficial relationship for them

in which a dudebro unintentionally makes a really accurate analogy for the reason that they’re single forever

That’s a whale shark. They’re docile and in no way threatening to people or those fish depicted. Seals, by contrast, will attack people, possibly out of a frustrated sense of entitlement combined with poor socialization skills.

Well that backfired spectacularly.

This is in every way perfect irony. It’s beautiful.
