Shrub Monkeys 114 by ktshy Shrub Monkeys 114 by ktshy
BudumKSH!
This week's comic is brought to you by my brother Shagster (no mum, put down the phone, this didn't actually happen). You can check out his own account of his lovely (and absolutely non threatening) New York adventures over on his Vlog! [link]

A little back story on this strip (insert wobbly sound effects). I'd asked my brother to write me up some simple one panel strips (cuz I'm hella busy) with the instructions "Something puncy and brilliant, like Gary Larson's Far Side strips!" and then he comes back at me a few days later with "I decided to make it more like Family Circus!!!"
*head desk* Many thanks mon frere.

This is probably the funniest comic I've seen by you, but honestly the artwork seems a little flat and rushed :(

Ahhhhh, who doesn't love a good pun every now and then! (and by "good", I mean brilliant yet almost painfully horrible in a satisfying sort of way.)

This reminds me of a quote I once found. "A man who could make so vile a pun would not scruple to pick a pocket." -John Dennis

Perhaps it's the mugger who should be worried about Shagster.

I'm just really amused by that flag on top of the random building. And also, the Chrysler building and the Statue of Liberty should TOTALLY be right next to each other in real life.

At my college, at the beginning of the first semester, freshman are given mugs, and the ceremony is totally called 'mugging'.

Cute as always.

lol that is funny, although it really could have done without the 'not get mugged', cause it seemed a little repetitive. C: but good job! :heart:
