Meet the ‘Toon: Terri the Potato

As it turns out, it is impossible to draw a cute spider. That is why Terri is a potato.

Instead of manipulating events from the center of her web, Terri is covered with eyes. She sees everything. Our astute readers might think Terri is the leader of the CHORFs, but they would be wrong! Don’t feel bad, Mom, Dear Readers: I had no idea either. And I’m the writer.

Once Codex gets on a root beer-fueled frenzy there is just no stopping her.

I was thrilled, of course, because I knew there would be plenty of real-estate for Terri to cover with marks when we did the strip Silence Will Fall, which I’m repeating here for three reasons. First, it is past my bedtime. Second, we are preparing for Real Life stuff. Third, as a non-professional comic strip writer I don’t, in fact, have professional standards. Huh, you really do learn about yourself through “hardship.”

Maybe if I had been forced to write funny cartoons instead of cleaning my room when I was a wee lad things would have turned out differently.

Well, too late now. Sorry! is the consummate feminist for the modern age, and we’ll feature her as often as we need someone who knows what is best for us. Which should be fairly often: Apparently society, and by that I mean YOU, Dear Reader, are nothing but a racist, sexist, misogynist pig wallowing in a mire of cis-whatsit privilege.

I know. So welcome to the club. We have cookies, but the decoder ring is on back-order.

    1. As far as I can tell, Akismet thinks you are a spammer. Also as far as I can tell, I can’t do anything about it. Codex may or may not have an Akismet API number, which if she does may or may not let me see an Akismet “spammer list”.

      I’ll check with her in a couple of hours. Otherwise I think you can send mail to Akismet and ask to be removed, it looks as though WordPress might have a “collective” spammer list across all their sites. I’ll let you know more if I can discover anything else, otherwise I’ll just keep checking the queue as I can and approving you. Who knows, maybe Akismet will eventually learn!


      1. Yours is the only one that gives me trouble, after the initial approval.
        Akismet? Never heard of it. I’ll check it out.
        Might be a clever plan to get people to register. Like wearing a wooden duck on your head.


    1. I don’t think I activated akismet. Can’t find it now. The problem with WP programming is conflicting goals, imo. Like providing free and wanting to sell you themes means the free ones function like progs.
