Comic Writer or Punter? You Decide
Here is a recent picture of Benjamin playing with his tractor. I found something interesting on the internet. Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, has a blog. It is pretty funny stuff and can be found here http://dilbertblog.typepad.com/. He appears to be bored with his lifestyle of writing cartoons about office life so he has chosen to grace us with his wit. I was expecting posts about comics and his troubles with getting good ideas. There are some of those, however he also likes to post about topics like terrorism, creation vs evolution, religion, and politics. I think his entire intent is just to see how many people he can upset and how many comments he can get. It is a fun read if you are looking to kill some time. Somehow he finds time to post almost every day, although when your sole missions in life is to pound out 3 frames of comedy a day I'm sure you have some spare time. I was trying to think of a better job than semi-famous cartoonists but have been struggling. One at the top of my list would be NFL Punter. I mean come on, getting paid a few hundred thou to trot out 3-5 times a week to kick a ball, what could be better? Video game tester wouldn't be a bad way to make a living. Any kind of critic would be pretty good, you would get paid to go see movies, eat dinner, read books, visit amusement parks, etc., although people second guessing every one of your decisions would probably start to suck after a while. Sportscenter anchor, radio personality, and college professor would also be somewhere up there.
