Another one that's ripped raw right from the sketchbook, used as more of a stop-gap in today's paper since there was a bit of a lull in submissions - and so this is what scraping the bottom of the proverbial barrel looks like. Trying as of late to juggle multiple publishing schedules far in advance of some upcoming travel has meant getting several month's work done well ahead but paradoxically losing track of this week. Now I know why many cartoonists rely on syndicates - it'd be so much easier an better to simplify one's life as opposed to the jokes.
Yeah, that's my excuse.
