WiLdLiFe: 5 minute Penalty...No Talking...Still First Down



I just realized a few people might not get why Powell the Anteater throws a penalty flag at the end of the comic. Well, while we were in school, me and a few of my friends thought it would be hilarious, that if someone told a bad joke, that they would be penalized for it and not allowed to talk. I was normally the one that told terrible jokes and I, for some reason, supported this. So when ever anyone told a bad joke, one of us would say "Flag" or throw this terribly put together flag made of a bag and some lego pieces. The person who made the joke then had to be quiet for 2 or 5 minutes...I can't remember exactly. But, within 30 seconds of telling the bad joke, the person who said it could actually challenge the call. So the joke would go under review, and if it was still determined "not funny," they had an extra 2 minutes added to their penalty. If it was determined "funny," the person that threw the flag was penalized. So that's pretty much it. I hope this comic makes sense now...if it doesn't, I don't like you!

Strange ... I "got" the penalty flag. Nice touch. But the extended explanation, though not necessary for the cartoon to work, was great. Just finished Deadstock and went looking for more of your work. Nice stuff!!
