- You wanna know what's weird? Dental insurance, that's what.
Dental insurance itself isn't so weird. That it is needed at all, that is the weird part. Why does medical insurance cover every part of you EXCEPT your teeth? Think about it. Take a basic hot-dip galvanized roofing nail, drive it into any part of your body (except your teeth) and your medical insurance will cover it. Toe - covered. Kneecap - covered, left nipple - covered, scalp - covered. Swallow the nail; shove it up your pooper; poke it in your eye; ram it into your ear and it's all covered. Develop a mental illness that includes a compulsion to mutilate yourself with the nail and/or phobia of the nail, and medical insurance covers your therapy and meds. But if you bite down on that nail and chip your tooth.. oooooo! you need different insurance for that. Those parts are nasty, bitey bits and medical insurance wants nothing to do with them. Seriously? Seriously. Think about it. Weird.
- What has 4 thumbs and a Kickstarter project that met its stretch goal?

- I know. I know. Facebook is past tense. But people keep telling me how I need to have a Mightywombat Facebook page. So now I do.
This is more than just another small step towards eventual world domination. I want to use the page to give you a little something extra. I will post cartoons, new and old, and give you a little background on them and how I got the idea. Or how I screwed up the joke. Or how hard it is to draw hands. Why is that so hard? I see my hands all the time. If there is ANYTHING that should be easy to draw, it's hands. Yet I struggle with them as if I am trying to draw some primordial slime demon which can not be seen without inducing madness. Whoa. How did I start with Facebook and end up there. I dunno.
ANYWAY, go check out my new Mightywombat Facebook. I won't just limit it to my stuff. I will post other things that amuse me as well. More content is on the way all the dang time.

9/26/2013 - No toon on Mightywombat this week. Sorry. I was going to do one last night, but I had one of those simple projects that got out of control. I ended up just going to bed when it was over. I won't go into the details, but it started with attaching a rack and basket to my kid's bike and it ended with me sawing though things with an angle grinder. I remained clothed throughout the process, so that's good.
