THE MINION

9-4-14

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.

Funny pants indeed!

Funny pants indeed!

Until next toon,

Pamo

    My Grandmother would say… ‘That boy’s not right’… and then she’d roll her eyes…. Jeff’s quite the comic isn’t he? Makes your job writing down his antics pretty easy peasy … now I’ve gotta go look up minion… what the heck is a minion anyway?

    Hehhehee classic. And those pants. They’re quite something. And that something is “pants.” What a redundant statement. I’ll help myself out now, sorry.

      Yea- those pants will do it to you. Make you redundant. You’ll want to say the same thing more than once and often twice, but never just one time. It’s the pants. 🙂

    Ha Ha Good one liner Jeff. Like Mr Brown I too thought it was funny. Real life often gives us the best comic ideas. I wanna pair of those duo-colour jeans too

    Hahaha! I think your minion job would go better if you got some goggles and overalls.

    Jeff’s sportin’ some cool threads! Only one thing missing: his bike!

      Goggles and overalls are a great idea! I’ll get MINION embroidered on the bib.
      Jeff’s bike was off on the side of the road. You should have seen the looks his pants got that day- so funny!
