You know how Florence just lays around never talking all the time? He's thinking...and now everyone will know what.



I feel humans are in a situation very similar to the pig you depict here. As children, we are fooled into believing that there are endless possibilities, and that anyone can be rich and successful if they just work hard. But the reality is that most people work super hard, but barely ever get ahead. Our life essence is extracted from us by those with superior intellects. We are leveraged and manipulated, maximum labor for minimum pay. We believe that we are free, but are really slaves, endlessly paying bills, the cost of living always outpacing wages. All our time is consumed with work, never knowing who we really are because we can never direct our energies towards our true inner goals and needs, we can never develop our talents or realize our dreams.
Zombies, worker bees, mindless drones, livestock.

Thanks, Chris-tar. Yes I'm also frustrated I can't work on comics full time like I want to. And, like you say, I'm not intelligent enough to figure out how.

I enjoy reading lighthearted novels such as the one Florence is working on. The Gulag Archipelago is another that comes to mind.

Ha don't need to make cartoons anymore. Your comments are plenty hilarious enough!

The Gulag Archipelago will seem like a cheerful kids book by the time Florence is done.
