unicycle comic strip

I just looked trhrough the comic strips in the newspaper. (about the only thing I read in it )

And I saw a unicycling strip! But it wasnt very funny, and it related unicycels to the circus.

I'm not going to claim that this is a great cartoon and the quality of the art as well as the presentation could be better. But it's not meant to be a laugh out loud bit, just amusing. And the idea of unicyclist pall bearers is amusing. Lighten up.

I stopped reading the Sunday comics long ago because I started noticing the "humor" for the most part was aimed at a very wide audience, requiring a lot of compromises to fit that audience without offending anybody. In other words, most of the stuff was maybe a little cute, or a little funny, but not enough to be worth my time.

I thought this one fit in fine. To the artist, as to many people depicting unicycles, the riders are only semi-human, and are thought of as "unicycle people." In this case, it's okay by me, because that's what I am.

Sem and Teresa have done the equivalent with a wedding (in 1986 they were married with the entire wedding party, including officiant, on unicycles). Someday one of us may do what's pictured in that comic.

(BTW it won't be me -- my instructions are to "cut out and donate the good parts, then burn the rest")

I feel that they should make you laugh or there's no reason. It wasnt really funny at all it was just a little clever. At first I even thought it was three unicyclists riding on a rainy day with like a thing over them that I could not make out. It lacked the easy read that they should have too. Its like ok so he fell? then they are in the rain with a thing over them? what? oh well I'm a cridict.

Looking at it again, it still seems sad, but I found myself chuckling inside once I realized that the humor was purposefully dry; very dry; very very dry.

Ahhhhhh cmon guys, lighten up a bit. If anything i think its amusing that without knowing it the author has touched on 2 things all us unicyclists hold dear,
1) the obsession we have for the one wheel contraption
2) and the friendships we make with those who share this obsession, afterall this site is a symbol of the community we have become a part of.
I think it is time for us to get over the whole people thinking we're in the circus, let them think what they want if it makes them happy.
Mark
