Can You Dig It?

I battled a serious case of writer’s block today. I had roughed out 4 or 5 comic ideas but none of them ever gelled. Josh suggested I do a fart joke and be done with it. I didn’t want to cop out quite that hard, but as a tribute to my day of desperation and to his flatulent suggestion, I threw one in the first panel.

I’d like to think Isaac Hayes was floating around in some sort of Soulicious Chocolate Funk Heaven, the kind of place where Bootsy Collins, not St. Peter, would greet you at the pearly entrance to the Eternal Life Funkdubious Mothership Spacegasm. Alas, Mr. Hayes was a Sci-Lon. You’d think he could have warded of the brainwashing powers of the “Church of Scientolgy” with his Sex-Machine powers or his ability to “not cop out when there’s danger all about.” (I know the song isn’t about HIM but… isn’t it, though?)

At least Sci-Lon’s believe in a type of reincarnation (it litterally involves a trip to Venus to have your soul refitted with a new “meat-body”). He could already be back. If you see a 2 day old baby with a deep, soulful voice, a willingness to risk his neck for his brother man and just a little more facial hair that you would expect from an infant, that’s probably him.

Ya’ damn right.

  1. Are you so jaded that the dick-joke wasn't an option in the gay male reference to shaft? The three of you parachuting off the tip of the Washington Monument in a foam of egg-whites and baking-soda?

  2. I like to think that Hayes was a secret agent, and is kicking Xenu's ass in Scientology heaven.

    Also, this comic made me laugh at a fart joke for the first time in a long time. Thank you.

  3. Issac Hayes isn't dead! Don't know know Scientologists can't die? I think they can also shoot fireballs out their asses too…

  4. is shaft really dead? (i know he'll never REALLY die, cause he's in our hearts)
    is it a little sad, or awesome, that this is where i get my news?

  5. Yeah, it was unfortunate that he succumbed to the dark side, but like South Park said, "We shouldn't be mad at Chef for leaving us, we should be mad at that fruity little club for scrambling his brains."

  6. I didn't even realize that was a fart joke. I just thought Eli ate the canary…cause you know, Mexicans do that sort of thing.
