The Doodle

Crazy Morbidly Obese Guy came about unexpectedly from a doodle on a legal pad.  Once I'd drawn him, the idea for the script followed and I scribbled it out on the same piece of paper.  Here's the doodle:

Chartock and Egg Yolks

In no way, shape, or form is my husband Crazy Guy.  HOWEVER.  The story about the UAlbany graduate journalism class, Chartock, and the egg yolks is his.  It seems that, out of health consciousness, Chartock would eat just the eggs whites and feed the yolks to his dog.  And, as CG recounts in the strip, a student impressed him by suggesting that something bad for Chartock would also be bad for the dog.

CG's "Chartock" Obsession

As you can see from the collection of strips featuring or mentioning Alan Chartock, Crazy Guy is a little bit fixated on him.  In CG's Albanycentric view, Chartock has a MEDIA EMPIRE.  He might be the only one in the world to think so (no offense intended to Mr. Chartock).  :)

New Administration, Fresh Crazy

Crazy Guy just can't let go of the notion that he's going to be a playa in state politics!  By the way, the "yard sale" strip came from a couple of suggestions my son made.  He wanted a yard sale strip, he wanted both David Paterson (then-Governor of NYS) and Elly Patterson to be in the strip, and also some of his favorite characters.  Those of you who read "For Better or For Worse" might be able to recognize the "Elly Patterson" bobblehead next to the David Paterson one.  Other favorite characters appear on the table.  :)
