Here is a different take on word play, a collaboration of mine with my friend, Cliff. He and I are working on a book project together, which consists entirely of word puzzles. This cartoon is not part of it, however. More on that as it develops.
I grew up in Texas and Oklahoma and found myself wondering each summer as the heat reached 100% Fahrenheit (that’s 614% Celsius for those of you not familiar with the metric system), why people before the days of air conditioning decided to settle there. Especially when you consider that they regularly wore coats and ties and petticoats and long-sleeve dresses and boots and hats. If they didn’t have diminished I.Q.s when they got there, they soon would after a few summers dressed like that.
Come to think of it, it might explain some of the voting patterns of the Deep South.
