New distraction

Highly recommended cartoon that I’m adding to my links:

The Dinette Set.

And the artist has her own webpage: Julie Larson’s Dinette Set.

Not only is the dialogue cracking, the little ‘notes to self’ that inhabit the backgrounds via t-shirts, kitchen wipe boards and coffee mugs are priceless.

From the author’s website:

“The Dinette Set delivers the reader a slice of American Pie. Daily monotony and repetition provide order, comfort, and peace of mind . Mental and physical exertion are avoided at all costs. Self-imposed personal goals are always made to be within reach. There is a constant supply of economy of mind and pocketbook. Inane conversation, based on wive’s-tales, superstitions, gossip, generalizations, and rumors, is set upon the Lazy Susan on the Penny kitchen dinette table and spins endlessly out of control. T.V. is a constant source of inspiration and original ideas.  Dinette Set’s seemingly superior attitude is merely based on Ignorance.”

I am a misanthrope. No one ever believes me, but this seems to prove my point.
