Perhaps the funniest thing about this comic is it’s true. It was one of Jeff’s crazy good one-liners that comes natural to him. He doesn’t bother to consider that this ability to squeeze out something funny from not much at all is a gift.
After he said this to me and after I stopped laughing I knew I had to make it into a comic. Jeff didn’t think it would translate so we beta tested it on Mr. Brown the UPS driver. (His name isn’t really Mr. Brown, but Jeff calls all UPS drivers Mr. Brown because all UPS trucks are brown.) Try to keep up.
Actually I beta tested it on Mr. Brown because Jeff was convinced no one else would think it was funny. So Mr. Brown came hauling in another box and I shouted out without stops… I told Jeff he needed a minion to do his bidding and Jeff said he had one but I hadn’t really worked out. Pause….
Then Mr. Brown began a slow chuckle as his face turned pink, then red, then tears formed behind his glasses. I turned to Jeff and yelled, “See?! It’s funny!”
So at that point Jeff had to concede that it was indeed funny. Sheesh! And you thought my life was easy.
I’ll end this post with a photo of Jeff I took Wednesday while on a ride. Look carefully at his pants. I told you- the man has the gift of funny and he doesn’t even try.
Until next toon,
