Transfers!

Hobbit Fast

Did you know that Hobbits have seven meals in their day? Suddenly, fasting for two meals seems a lot more doable. (Although, I did exaggerate a little for the sake of a joke. Going without Second Breakfast and Elevenses would be a six hour break.)

Tricky Topics

As a teenage missionary, I totally was ashamed of the painfully unhip Osmond family. Now as a middle aged adult, I realize just how wrong I was. The Osmonds are awesome!* (Although I was totally right about Saturday's Warrior.)

Nobody's Home

As a missionary, I'd get this all the time. I was never so snarky to respond the way Elder Van Dyke does in this strip. As you can imagine, drawing this one was very cathartic.

(Incidentally, a similar joke appeared in the hugely successful Despicable Me movie. Would it surprise you to know that the co-writers of that movie are Latter-day Saints? Perhaps they were addressing some pent up frustrations from their tracting days too.)
