I’ve had people tell me that we Canadians have weird potato chip flavours. For instance, apparently in the states, Ketchup chips aren’t a thing. Also Dill Pickle chips I’ve heard are not very common. Well frankly let me relieve any anxiety my International readers might have about missing out on anything because Ketchup and Dill Pickle chips are just as gross as they sound. Ketchup chips are basically salt and vinegar with red food colouring and Dill Pickle chips are like pouring the brine from that Bicks jar at the back of your fridge directly into your mouth. Eating Canadian snack food is like losing a bet that you don’t remember making.

Hi there folks! A little while ago I was challenged by my buddy James Boyd, creator of Sunny Side Up, to take part in the Best Webcomic Challenge in a .GIF dance off between two of characters of our creation. I decided to enter The Old Man in My Stomach as my contestant, and as you can see above, he knows how to bust some serious moves. The votes are super tight right now, and if you haven’t done so already, I’d be forever grateful if you would take a moment to click through to THIS LINK to Best Webcomics and cast a vote for my dancing grandpa. Let’s show the webcomic community that an old man still has what it takes to whoop those little whippersnappers on the sock-hop floor!
Just a quick note to say that Joe Flanders, who does the webcomic Ninja and Pirate has had a bit of a family emergency and put out a call on Twitter for guest comic strips, so that is what I spent my time working on the past couple nights instead of a new Fat Bassist strip. I’m not sure if or when Joe will use the strip I did, but if you can, go show him some love over at ninjaandpirate.com
If you follow my comic regularly (and I do truly appreciate it if you do) you’ve probably noticed I’ve been slowing down a bit with the frequency of my new comics. I started out months ago trying to do five a week, and I was even doing a bonus voting incentive comic every week on top of that at the beginning. I’m now finding that doing 5 comics a week is starting to take a bit of a toll on me, and I don’t want to comics themselves to suffer from being rushed or from my own personal burn-out. So for a while at least I’m going to slow down to two or three comics a week, depending on how crazy my life gets.
I appreciate your readership, patience and any feedback you want to throw my way!
