They call him Flipper, Flipper, the bird who says “fuck you”…
No one you see…gives less fucks than he!
And we know Flipper, Flipper, lives in a world full of assholes,
So he shouts dank prose, with rancorous glee!
If you can't tell, this comic was born from pure desparation. We sat down on Monday with zero ideas, found absolutely nothing funny in the news, and ended up going with a meta-joke about cartooning that was resolved through a cheap visual gag.
But on the plus side, Sarah got to experiment with creating the "out of focus" look in the last three panels, which I think turned out pretty well. We'll have to try that again.
