I'm sipping my morning coffee ~ one (huge) cup, max ~ thinking about how fun it was to babysit my friend S&M's kids last night and listening to their 3-1/2 year old tell me about her pet fish, "Phoebe," ~ when I found this hilarious postcard I bought a few weeks ago at Elephant Pharmacy in Berkeley ~ What does it mean? Why is it so hilarious? Is it just me?
The artist behind the postcard is Jory John ~ the postcard is from his "Waterville" series, which, you might have guessed, is all about the life of some fish ~~ but they happen to encounter many of the same problems we land-dwellers do . The series (and Jory's other work) is great, but for some reason this postcard I found at the Pharmacy is not included in his on-line catalogue. Check out the on-line cartoon series! They are all hilarious but especially the Ocean-Hogging SUV Fish card, and the Homeland Security of The Sea, oh gawd, and When Fish Get Fin Implants. Funny! Or, again, is it just me?
