P.S. Some of you might think this one seems familiar.. and you would be right! I have repurposed an old joke. I should be ashamed.. but, I wanted to use this for something else and improve the punchline and drawing. Hopefully I succeeded. The original one can be seen here in case you’d like to disagree and/or play spot the differences! And, an old oil sands rant that – alas – still holds true can be read here.
Good job repurposing your work 🙂 Environmentally conscious in your cartoons and with them, too! Spot the difference: you also changed your font!
Ha, being ESL, I thought that I missed the joke on the mangling of metaphors…but just got it (I think)…the physical mangling of the metaphoric flower, right?!?
Heh, environmentally conscious repurposing. Although I did use new electrons…
I did change my font! Good catch. I thought that might be one of the more subtle ones.
And yes it’s the physical mangling of the metaphoric flower.
Funny when I think of you I don’t think of ESL but I guess that is the case. In which case, writing a novel is even more impressive. I think we had talked about Joseph Conrad before but it seems ETL (english as his third language) did wonders for the uniqueness of his expression/sentence structure.
