Quick labor? That’s not very realistic, you may say, but then again you’re not the one writing/drawing a comic strip that’s based on humor and not getting too graphic… So, if you want to really get nitty-gritty with the whole labor process, providing a more realistic take on baby having, then go ahead and make your own comic.
This comic is simply catering to the overwhelmingly loud portion of my dedicated fanbase who is all ‘Where’s Rick? He’s always been my favorite character. My faith in the direction of the comic is shook!’. Well, have no fear that one guy who said something about Rick a week ago, causing me to completely shift the entire narrative based on his one opinion… You have your answer here.
Guys. Public Service Announcement forthcoming: Never get the spin dip, no matter where you go. It’s always frozen. Ever wonder why every crappy corporate restaurant chain has a ‘spinach artichoke dip’ or something similar on their menu? It’s because it costs them like 11 cents per dozen to make, and they can just toss it into the microwave for 45 seconds whenever it’s ordered. No judgement if you don’t mind. I don’t mind myself! But there are always misconceptions of what’s fresh and what’s not fresh when you go to a dining establishment… And I can tell you that exactly 100% of spinach dip appetizers are frozen, gross-ass looking messes.
Charles ‘Chuck’ Nichols went on to become a minor celebrity in Seaford, Delaware years later after starring in a half dozen ads as the ‘Wire Tyrant’, a local wire fencing company’s attempt to compete with their competitor’s ‘Wire King’ personality. It didn’t pay well, but for a solid 4-7 years Chuck drank for free at local bars probably only a little more than half the time. He divorced from his wife Lisa under amicable differences, when the kids were mostly grown up and in college, and stayed friendly with her… But never re-married. Not that he tried. Chuck was happy, mostly. He grew old in Seaford, working as the guidance counselor at a local high school. It didn’t pay much, but it payed enough. Chuck quietly died in his sleep at the age of 64, to heart complications.
Here’s a comic that isn’t all that funny. I mean, maybe it’s funny to you, but I didn’t write it with humor in the forefront. Actually, we’re in the midst of a storyline where a few of these strips are like that. I hope you like it, because this is the backstory of CUPS. I’m not sure if it’s important, but it sure seems helpful to the understanding of the history of CUPS. You know what? Even if it’s not important, I gotta come up with some sort of thing to write about twice a week. Did you know that time just keeps going and these strips keep needing to be created and posted? It’s never ending and infinitely tireless, this time thing.
