This comic has a story to it.
It was around this time that I felt Lazy Fireman was getting a little too “pun-y” with it’s jokes. So I decided to make a comic about this and make fun of myself in the process.
In parallel to this there was another cartoonist who was also doing many comics involving puns in the University’s paper. When he saw my comic making fun of bad comics, he took offense. I like to try to imagine his thought process.
“He’s making fun of comics with bad jokes… wait… I make comics with bad jokes!!”
Since my name is on top of the fake comic I thought it was clear who the butt of this joke was, but I guess not.
