Unshelved comic strip for 12/15/2014

Happy Birthday Gene

Today is Gene's birthday, and I think we can all agree that he looks pretty good for a 92 year-old.

Normally I celebrate his birthday by drawing a strip taking place in the library bathroom, his favorite place. And indeed I had a bathroom-themed script all lined up. But instead I decided to surprise Gene.

When we edit scripts together, sometimes we go off the rails and just have fun writing in a stream-of-consciousness approach that makes us laugh but produces a deeply offensive strip we'd never actually run. Gene always begs me to draw them, and I always say no. Today's was one of these. But then I figured, what they heck, why not. Today's strip isn't really offensive, it's just weird, a description that also applies perfectly to today's birthday boy.

Happy Birthday Gene!
