Rural Kentucky greetings!
I'm in the car on the way to visit my grandma. She just turned 90, and the wife and I are driving up to New England to help her party in style.
Today's comic was the second one I've created while sitting in a moving car. I'm getting pretty good at this, but still hate it. The motion sickness is currently creeping in, but I've been thinking... I rarely get car sick while behind the wheel, I'll have to make a comic while driving next time.
Before I go into any more detail about the road trip, I wanted to say thanks to Rene Rosa for the shout-out in his most recent Sherman Tanks podcast. I've mentioned being a fan of this podcast in the past. It's always inappropriate humor, yet somehow poignant.
Thanks as well to DomainGang for showing off my domain name comic. They have an entire site devoted to nothing but domain name news... I had no idea such a thing existed, but it's worth checking out.
Back to the drive... as I type this, there's a tiny truck pulling a tiny trailer loaded with mattresses. The trailer is wiggling considerably back and forth. It looks like the driver may soon lose control. Just a few meters behind is a car with a sticker that says "Pat".
Any minute now, that trailer could swerve out of control, flipping over and tumbling down the highway. The car behind it would not stand a chance as the trailer skidded to a stop right in front of it, sending mattresses straight through their windshield in a truly horrific scene.
So my question is, if the mattresses from the truck are destroyed while striking and killing a driver named Pat, would the driver of the truck be charged with matricide or patricide?
Sorry. It's a long trip.These are the thoughts that will keep me awake when it's my turn to drive. See you Tuesday.
