Snow Monster

I hope you don't misinterpret this drawing and erroneously assume that the snow monster is about to eat that poor bear. Snow monsters don't eat bears. They throw them... hundreds of miles in some cases. This relationship is mutually beneficial to bears and snow monsters. The bears get an exhilarating trip to a distant mountain range or parts of the sea they never would have visited otherwise, and the snow monsters get to vent some frustration. We call this kind of relationship “symbiotic.” The point I'm trying to make is that you'll never get these last two minutes of your life back. Sorry about that.

first to post! Man, with airline tickets like they are, I should just go piss off a snow monster.

My favorite part is the wrap-up sentence. No 2 minutes is wasted on laughter. I sound like a hallmark card.

And all this time, I thought bear's were just evolving to be sea-creatures!

I'd second Jed's hallmark comment too. haha.

Liz said...

Aww, that poor little bear. Bet he never thought he'd be so quickly thrown (pun intended) to the bottom of the food chain.

Eli said...

Great expression!

Sam Nielson said...

I thought the bears were in the ocean because their iceberg melted? Darn Al Gore's not pulling the wool over these eyes again.

Hey! Lewis got your awesome post card in the mail and was thrilled to death! He feels like a real celebrity has written (in the most perfect font worthy handwriting ever) to him! Thanks for making his day!

Aaron said...

My relationship to your blog is also symbiotic, but in a less terrifying sort of way. Thanks for the postcard (and the hand-written message!). Classy.

Eric Z said...

Nice pic I love the size difference between them. Great choice of colors as usual. Hope all is well and the stress level and work hours for you have dropped a bit.

Great snow monster!!! I want to see the follow up shot of the bear flying in the air.

I can't wait to get my postcard. I keep checking my mailbox like Ralphie looking for his decoder ring in a Christmas Story
