Here’s a kookey little play on words about the Great Wall of China. If they have a great wall, why not a great chair, rug and lamp? Get it?!

A reader (and writer) wrote to me last week and asked me why they were flinging a plate of spaghetti at the wall. I thought it was obvious, but in case there are others out there wondering, it’s because I figure what better way to attack one’s furnishings than by spilling spaghetti and red wine on them?

The title panel, or “header panel,” as it is called in the cartoon industry, was an old one that I reworked to look Genghis Khany.

Here is the original header panel. Can you spot the differences?

  6. >But why wouldn’t the Great Furniture of China be at least semi-protected on the China side of the Great Wall?…Other note: I now see the b-day greeting to “Dad” which didn’t happen to catch my eye when it appeared in my local paper, even though I probably should have remembered to watch for it since you’d mentioned it previously.I’ve been enjoying your blog for a couple months now, especially for all the behind-the-scenes about-cartooning stuff. I wish more comics artists would do that. I happened to notice the blog address in the panel one day and have been following things here ever since.

  7. >Christina Awesome,Dimension Skipper, et al-Thanks for reading!Cully-Yes, the Flying Spaghetti Monster it is!Sayotte316-Thanks for leaving me out of your holiday wishes.
