Rats! Episode 28 – Um, oops?

My apologies, folks. This was supposed to go up yesterday, but I’ve been up to my armpits in alligators for the last couple of weeks. First there was the trip to North Carolina last weekend, and now we’re heading out to Toronto for a week’s vacation. I’ve been busy finishing off paying work, and something had to slide.

This is another one of those cases where I must have been called down to the general’s office by his secretaries and told to “draw something funny.” I don’t recall General Musser becoming a grandfather, but here’s the cartoon just the same. I think at this point we really start to see how different Irwin (who was really just me in cartoon form) was from all the rest of the VTCC. However did I manage to survive four years in the Corps? To this day I’m still scratching my head over that one.

I’ve sworn off all my other blog posts for next week, since I’ll be in Toronto. However, since I’m at my desk right now, I will promptly put together the next Rats! post for the upcoming Thursday, just to make up for being late this week. That’s right, nothing else may go up next week, but Rats! will be there on Thursday. I’ll go set it up right now!

  1. I love these cartoons and I’m very glad to hear that I can look forward to next week’s installment. I am an incoming Cadet this year and see these cartoons all over facebook (check out this week’s Rats!) via all my incoming buds. I look forward to reading these during freshman year and laughing (you can either scream or laugh…I prefer laughter to the screaming) at the cartoons as I experience them.

    Have fun in Toronto!

  2. Hi! Thanks so much for posting these comics! I don’t know if you know this, but a whole lot of us incoming rats (fall 2010) have been following your posts and really look forward to Thursdays! It’s good to see that there can be a funnier side to Corps life as we get ready for NCW, which is in less than two weeks. Thanks for taking the time to share them with us!
