Yes, The Lyrics Are Wrong


I would say that it's because the drunk people on the bus are so totally trashed that they messed it up... but the truth is I had a brain-fart, and put the wrong word in for the refrain to "Na Na Hey Hey." I then proceeded to have an even bigger brain-fart, and somehow saved the flattened version of the photoshop file over the master one. Yeah. Ouch. Seriously. And I did a lot of the finishing work for this on a train, so the last Time Machine backup I have is from before I even started with the shadows...

This one was a bear on all fronts anyway. I think it's fair to say I'll try to avoid drawing the interior of Centro busses for awhile - too many little details to draw. (while trying to get the perspective right!) At least it turned out pretty!

But enough whining from me. As is usually the case, this "issue" is a true story of a bus ride my girlfriend took from South Campus last semester. If the stars align right, I might even get another comic up by the end of this week! We'll see how that works out.

Way to mess up the lyrics, Mr. Hanley!

Anyhoo, this was in fact the best bus ride ever. Especially since 1 AM bus rides from South to North campus usually involve a bunch of drunk freshmen talking about their sexual escapades. Or how they were going to get even more trashed.

What can I say, a giant group of drunk kids welcoming you to the bus is a lot better than hearing about how that one skanky chick got laid last week.


Just sayin'.
