This was inspired by a conversation I had with Fury yesterday. We drove by a liquor store with a sign advertising cartons of cigarettes. He asked me how many cigarettes came in a carton. I said, "about a few hundred - and you also get a free cancer."
Also, as if we needed yet another reason to hate cancer, it took away a beloved member of our community just yesterday. Rest in peace, Susan. You were a true fighter.
So last night, I asked Fury if there was anything in particular he wanted to see in his lunchbox cartoon for the next day. He said M&Ms. After he went to bed, I sat there thinking "I have nothing." Also, "I hope he didn't mean Eminem." I was also dozing off at my desk. Then a Google Alert came into my inbox (yes, I Google-stalk myself, and so do you). And this was in it:
There's nothing like a whole lotta pressure (and a glass of Jack Daniels) to kick the creative gears in motion. Hope you like this one.
To all who read, subscribe, re-tweet, Facebook, email and otherwise spread the Lunchbox Daily love across the internet, a heartfelt thank you from a guy who used to get in trouble for doodling on his textbooks.
