Oh my. Kids will just say the darndest things, am I right, Lucy?
You arrre correct. And so is Bill Cosby.
Hah, I worked in a Summer Camp last summer with kids these ages and I recognize some of these sentences. They're cute but they spill their thoughts so bluntly sometimes. And I made them draw a comic one day and they come up with so many crazy ideas!
I like the title of the post, haha.
I re-read the book recently and completely fell in love with her balls. In a much less gross way than that sounds, I promise.
Also, I completely sympathize with the small children being awful sometimes thing - I was art instructor at an all boys camp for two summers.
this comic is hilarious. i can't believe a kid threatened to throw you out a window! ha!
I vote... a bear. Those are famous.
Has our society lost all sense of manners? Jeez, if I said some of that... *WAP* right in the mouf.
This makes me glad I couldn't hear what my kids were saying when I taught in korea!
Although, once they discovered google language tools, I got some choice messages from them, including:
- 'you are a cross-dresser'
- 'oh you fool, James Harvey, you sick and foolish dog'
- 'you look like a murderer'

As a heterosexual male who's experienced puberty, I'd just like to say that your hair and glasses very much do work for you.
Hell, as a gay man, your glasses do indeed work for you. ;)

I'd love to see Serge Gainsbourg.
Remember the correct schoolground reply to "Do you know who my dad is?"
happens to be
"Well if your mother doesn't know then I can't really help!"
LOL I'll have to remember that!
HA! These are so great! Raina did a mini-comic collecting some of the stuff kids have said to her as well. You guys should team up and organize an anthology!
if it doesn't get you in any legal trouble, I'd like to see some more Jeeves and Wooster.
If not, then just a sherlock holmes or watson will do

It arrived unscathed
I got your package! I haven't opened it yet because I'm going to Dun Laoighre next weekend to frame it and I'm too afraid of anything happening to it in the meantime. Thanks for the drawings on it! They are really cool! What kind of brush pen do you use?
Re:The kid in the 2nd last panel. He sounds like a middle aged man in an 9 year olds body.

Re: It arrived unscathed
Oh, and I enjoyed your drawing of Hurley from Lost. I won't be going to America this Summer but it would be cool if you painted him?
Oh my, that made me shout laughing.
How about Austen's three Dashwood sisters?
Come to MOCCA with a Batman and I will BUY IT FROM YOUSE.
Or we can trade FOR ARTS!
A portrait of Darwin. Because it was his birthday.
Man, I got so drunk in honour of his birthday. A guy doesn't turn 200 just everyday!
Oooh, how about a painting of Oscar Wilde and Edgar Allan Poe having a furious Write Off. haha
I love this idea. Also, why not President Obama? I'd love to see him in your style...and he's a hot seller's item now.
I would totally love to see how you'd do a Joan of Arc, and an Annie Oakley. =)
And as a parent, I totally sympathize with your experience with the kids and assure you that not all kids are that obnoxious... some of us really do teach our kids manners. =) (whether they USE them when they're away from home may be another matter, however...)
benicio del toro!
that guy has one hell of an expressive face.
I like your haircut.
I've worked at a couple ski resorts and we always got the school groups through. I actually had a whole lot of fun because it was my turn to pick on the popular kids.
The best was, one time, this 'pretty girl' (read as popular girl) whined that she didn't want the boots that were assigned to her because they were ugly. I quibbed back "I bet you don't have a boyfriend." The group really liked me and asked for me each week they came up.

Suggestion for a portrait : Nestor Makhno !
I can't get this comic to load, must be this extra-slow hotel wireless connection... all I get is a blurry picture, and I've hit "reload" like 20 times...

What after school program do you work with? Is it YoungRembrandts?
Nobody comes out of middles school unscarred. Nobody. Man, those kids are mean =(
