Today’s comic was inspired by the most recent Nedroid comic, which parodies The New Yorker style of image / caption cartooning. A bit silly, but I thought it had some nice subtlely.
For those who wonder how a joke comes together, here’s the train of thought behind today’s comic:
Hmm, what should this comic be about? I said I’d do a caption style. I guess I should go read some New Yorker cartoons. Okay, there goes an hour. Now what about this comic? Do I have any notes written down? “Pirate juice”, what was that supposed to be? Oh yeah! This could be funny…

What exactly should the line be? Should it be that the doctor is lecturing the patient or apologizing to him? I think it works better as the doctor apologizing, like he didn’t know any better. I can do that just by writing “sorry” at the front. Nice. Aaaand Marty thinks this is funny. Okay, time to post! I guess I’ll mention how I came up with this in the writeup. Maybe people will read that.
Remember, any print of any comic purchased through the HilariAwesome.com store through the end of the month has all the proceeds go to a cure for breast cancer! Currently we’re at $0. Come on you guys, you’re making me look bad in front of breast cancer.
