Outsourcing tweets

I know that Charlie Sheen advertising for a Twitter intern isn't new news anymore, but I've been meaning to do something about that in the strip.  Sheen now has more than 3 MILLION followers.  More than 100,000 times as many as CG has.  You know CG can't stand that!  :)

Madoff

Another idea from my husband.  He came across the article I link under the strip--a New York Magazine interview with Madoff--shortly after passing the strip idea along to me.  Life imitates crazy!  Original idea had CG making signs, but I liked the visual of him making a t-shirt with Madoff's face and the "Freebird"-inspired slogan.  One hazard is that while I was working on this strip, I kept getting "Freebird" stuck in my head.  Darn Skynyrd!

Bubbles

My husband has two MBAs and a law degree.  He reads financial and economic blogs and makes predictions about the impending economic doom.  Today's strip was born in his brain, as are many of the economic/financial-themed strips.  Ha, it's all his fault I had to [try to] draw Cuomo for four panels!
