#1021 – Hohner

Every once and awhile as I’m sending off a new design to be approved by that weeks group of marketers that are currently in power, I think back to when I was in lobster fisherman’s school. How crazy it would be to go back and tell that bright eyed and sea soaked kid that all of his dreams will go nowhere and he will end up using “computers” to make things for people to look at on the “internet.” He would probably just burst his emergency squid ink pouch in my face and dive back down into the lobster trenches for safety. Those were the days.

    I never saw that episode. But your comic makes me cry, because I remember times like those too, when I wanted to be a game developer.

    If you ask me in n years you will be living off of your comic strip Chris. Now I just have to figure out what n is equal to.

    I work at a factory that builds parts for airplane engines and some of the office workers have mugs that say “I love the smell of JET FUEL in the morning.” ;-P

    I know this comment is more than a year late, but it saddens me that nobody got the Bob Dylan reference.

    (Although I can understand the Star Trek association.)
