Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: $#?@! Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"Which curse word are you using in this comic? I can't think of a single curse word that is an adjective that's only five characters long. Or is it some fancy Canadian curse word?" -Zach
Sure! In Canada, we just pick your favourite four-letter swear word and add a silent "u".
I've never thought of those cartoon swear word symbols as literal stand-ins for specific letters. Like, a '#' does not equal an 'f' or something. There is no decoder ring you can buy to reveal the naughty stuff. Although that's a missed marketing opportunity if I've ever heard of one!
Personally, when I am hearing the dialogue out loud in my head, I imagine cartoon swears as an unintelligible string of growling consonant sounds. FJKSRDN!
"How come Aaron never returned to his original identity, Jackson?" -Max
Aaron is his real name! Jackson is just the name he went by as a ninja. (And possibly his original real last name.)
"In a recent post-comic post you mentioned you were busy with Canada Day, and I was wondering--what does that entail? I'm not familiar with the festivities of the holiday. " -Cholisose
Everyone strips naked, smears themselves up with moose grease, and eats a few pounds of Yak meat. Usually we try to sacrifice an American to the great Beaver, but sometimes we have to settle for an Albertan. (Kidding, kidding!)
Or maybe we just had an all-day BBQ and watched the fireworks. Believe what you want!
That's a wrap for this week, friends. See you on Monday!
