I really am not sure how serious Megan and Charlie are about their relationship (although Candace suspects it will lead to marriage), but today they just wanted to watch a violent movie without being disturbed by a fifth wheel (or in this case, a third wheel). Being the generic cartoonist that I am, I went with the name Ripsaw Demons as the title of this fictitious horror flick.


********************


I don’t have a T.V. set in my room. The way I see it, I deprive myself of sleep enough as it is to be introducing the added temptation. But between the two roomies, there are at least three T.V. sets around the house. Too bad Candace is keeping the lovebirds away from the best one in the house! The living room T.V. set is almost always drawn by hand, but how do you like my digitally rendered version? By the way, why is it called a T.V. set when there is only one device? Mysteries!


********************


Well, I don’t think Candace is very keen on competing for Megan for Charlie’s attention, but I could be very wrong. At any rate, she sure knows how to define the term "Three is a crowd"! On a side note, that couch they’re sitting on is a real challenge to draw sometimes! I think it looks pretty good, but it could stand to be a little wider.


********************


I sometimes have to get after myself to not be envious when I perceive someone has something I want. For starters, I need to ask myself, “Jordan, do you really want to trade places with (fill in the blank)? His/Her life could be a total train wreck for all you know!” And so, Candace and Megan each realize just how good they have it. Megan doesn’t have to face the troubles associated with owning a pet, and Candace doesn’t have to put up with a boyfriend like Charlie! But I suspect it’s Fido who has it best!


********************


You’ve heard the term "Tough crowd"? That’s me when I watch television commercials! I just like to pick ’em apart and look for inconsistencies! Candace’s response to Sensuous Sally’s claim to having the most lingerie for sale is very similar to my own reaction to an advertisement for something I can’t even remember. But everybody’s different. While I can make fun of one advertisement, I may very easily be reeled in by another.


********************


I’ve done a bit of house painting in my day, both interior and exterior. Maybe it’s because she’s several inches shorter than me, but Candace’s painting technique differs from mine. She seems to favor hitting every spot on the low half of the wall first, whereas I like to just slap it on from floor to ceiling in columns. Even the smartest of us can be caught doing something completely looney, and Candace, who probably prides herself on being the smarter roomie, is left fuming at a sudden realization.


********************


I should admit that the idea for this joke was ripped off of what I recall was a meme depicting Arnold Schwarzenegger then (circa the 1960s) and now (circa 2008). The text on Mister Universe read “I’ll be back”, while accompanying text read “Oh, my back!” So there you have it. Even I get lazy with my ideas now and then. But it sure was fun having 120-something pound Candace strutting around pretending to be a “Lady Terminator".
