I can almost hear the exchange right now:
(ACTOR) What’s my motivation here?
(DIRECTOR) You’re someone with an exaggerated sense of entitlement, driving your brand new car over taxpayer-funded roads to your big suburban house which is patrolled by taxpayer-funded cops; and you don’t want to pay an extra five cents on the fattening crap you shouldn’t be feeding your kids anyway, even if it’ll fund all the emergency room visits they’re going to need when they get the diabetes years from now.
(ACTOR) I still don’t understand my motivation. It kinda doesn’t make sense.
(DIRECTOR) @#$% it. Just be as smug as possible.
If today’s strip sounds familiar to you, you must be following me on Twitter (or Facebook, which automatically reruns my Twitter posts). Whenever a certain number of people retweet (real humans might call it “resend”) one of my Twitter posts, I know it’s time to turn it into a strip. If you want to join this unofficial focus group, follow me here; and if I post something that makes you laugh, makes you think, or makes you want to rip my head off, just retweet it.
