The plot of this cartoon is pretty much how I came up with the idea. I need a cartoon idea. I should do one about Little 500. What’s funny about Little 500? I could do something about drunk people.
Any ideas I came up with weren’t all that good, or they were ideas that I didn’t necessarily want to post on a blog that my family reads (even though this is a strip run in a college newspaper, as a general rule I try to keep it a “family” cartoon where the rule of thumb is not to depict anything illegal). I thought this idea was silly and innocuous enough to keep up that trend, while still making a relevant observation about Little 500.
But seriously, I don’t understand the drinking thing. I can understand wanting a little buzz, but there is nothing appealing to me about the can’t-stand-up-straight, puking-your-guts-out things you see on campus sometimes. And I really don’t understand the people that do it again and again. Ralphing and chucking is usually an experience one doesn’t want to repeat.
See what I did there? 🙂
