You Can’t Fix Cupid

I’ve never liked Valentine’s Day.  I didn’t like it when I was single and I don’t like it now that I am married.  It’s like it makes you feel bad when/because you DON’T have a “significant other” and it makes you feel bad when you DO by making you feel you always have to “one-up” your previous Valentine’s Day gifts and events/ideas.  And Valentine’s Day marketing and advertising does nothing to help that in either situation.

That said, here is my one and only Valentine’s Day episode of Gralen and Jeddy.  It is kind of nonsensical(I know, like which of my cartoons are not?!) because it starts with Jeddy and his girlfriend sitting on a park bench already with love in their eyes, and cupid has to come along and steal Jeddy away from her.

Hey, I thought Cupid’s job was to help bring people together not split them up!  And they were already together as it was.

Ah well, it is better to have loved and lost(to Cupid of all people), than never to have… been made into a silly comic strip.

Like the title says, You Can’t Fix StCupid.  Enjoy, and for what it’s worth, Happy Valentine’s Day! 😉

Doubting Jessy

First off, I would like to apologize.  I tried, I really tried, to fix the condition that this episode of Gralen And Jeddy is in, because it is really horrible.  But there is only so much that photo editing software can do, and I tried it all.  There are small stains, probably what looks like a chocolate candy bar, and larger ones, which knowing me was probably chocolate milk.  But those things, plus the fact that it was made with my usual habit of scrunching a lot of words together, makes it virtually unreadable(you should see the original BEFORE I “fixed” it).  So thus, I will be transcribing the dialogue for this one.

It starts with Gralen and his son, Jessy, leaving a church service.  Jessy then asks Gralen: “Gralen(don’t ask why he calls his dad by his first name), do you sometimes doubt God?”

To which Gralen replies: “Well, sometimes Jessy, even though you are not supposed to.  And I think if you ask other people if they do doubt God, I think they’ll say no.”

Jessy:  “Well, I am going to see.  Bye!”

Gralen: “But wait…!”

The next panel consists of Jessy running around all over the neighborhood asking people if they doubt in God, with dotted lines marking his path, á la Family Circus.

Gralen: “Well, what did they say?”

Jessy(winded):  “They all said no. Whew!!”

Gralen:  “I told you they would.  And what if I ask if you wanted to go jogging?”

Jessy:  I’d say no!!”(Falls over)

Gralen:  “Ha Ha. Well then, let’s go home.”

Jessy:  “I’m with you!”

Hmmmm, I wonder how many people would say “no” to Jessy’s question today.
