I like this one. Oddly, I have no memory of writing it at all.
I’m a huge fan of the show The Venture Brothers. Every time a season of it comes out on video, I watch every episode again, because the two guys who write the show, Jackson Public and Doc Hammer, do the best commentary tracks I’ve ever heard. They were part of the inspiration for me to start writing these commentaries on my comics.
Anyway, the Venture brothers are twins. In one episode, one of the brothers, Hank, says to his twin, Dean, “Sometimes I forget how young you are.”
Dean replies, “You’re five minutes older than me.”
Hank say, “Then maybe, in five minutes, you’ll understand.”
In the commentary for that episode, Jackson admits that he wrote that joke, and isn’t proud of it. Doc tells him that he thinks it’s a great joke, and that he should be proud of it. Jackson says that he thinks it’s kinda hokey.
Doc told him, “No, it’s good old-fashioned joking!”
I bring this up, because panel one of this comic also strikes me as an example of good old-fashioned joking.
