Sometimes things are funnier in my head than they are when you actually see them done.
Found within the pages of "792.5 Exciting Afternoon Stitchery Projects III," I found a few pages called "People and Professions." There was a milkman, an astronaut, a mailman, a teacher and whatnot. Creatively enough, each of the people were the exact same square body, head and feet except with different hair and clothing. This certainly lead me to see the page as a bald mailman dressed up as different things during his off time. So now in my head, the "People and Professions" page had pretty much changed into "Mailman Marty: Transvestite."
I had no idea how to turn that into a palatable pattern. However, the "transvestite" part stuck.
Also stuck in my head was a cartoon from the late, great "Spy" magazine.
Hence, this creation...
Just not as funny as I wanted it to be. And it requires some recall of 8th grade science class and/or a recent trip to some sort of cavern. If you have to explain a joke, it just ain't funny.
Anyway, here it is in total:
Is it funnier now? Huh? Huh?
In addition to it being not as hilarious as I wanted, it is oddly shaped. The font I chose for the captions wound up being bigger than I anticipated, which made the whole thing long. I really need to plan this stuff out better.
I'm thinking it maybe needs more people on it....like an extra two on each side in different colored dresses. This would unfortunately make it necessary to pluralize both words. Ugh.
I think it really looks bad when you see it as all one thing. The individual pictures don't look too bad.
Oh well...at least I enjoyed it in my head.
We'll see what happens to it.
