Coincidence . . . I just recently bought Sparks' "Propaganda" CD. (Sparks is a "band" from early 70s that apparently is still performing, primarily in London). The song "Bon Voyage" greatly reminds me of your cartoon. The animals not picked by Noah lament their being left behind.
Clouds forming on the gospel sky, trouble is about to brew on us It didnt matter that we tried, they can only take a few from us The fins and the paws and hooves and feet Saunter up the gangway The randomest sampling is complete God, could there be someway That I could wear a hood or by the way I stood Sneak aboard with you Imitate, Imitate, Imitate, Imitate, they still know its you
Bon voyage, bon voyage, bon voyage, peace be with all of you I wish that I, I wish that I, were one of you
Tears falling on the sloping sand, there about to leave and we will stay All governed by the rules of chance, theyre about to leave and we will stay Goodbye to my lucky friends and foes, glad that we could know you Everyone sends their last hello, I wish that we could join you Two of you Two of them Two of those Two of them Safety for the few Two of you Two of them Two of those Two of them They will start anew
Bon voyage, bon voyage, bon voyage peace be with all of you I wish that I, I wish that I, I wish that I
Bickering, Dickering, Bickering, Dickering, Everything that moves Bickering, Dickering, Bickering, Dickering, Final, futile moves Bon voyage, bon voyage, bon voyage, peace be with all of you I wish that I, I wish that I, I wish that I
Cool that you gave xongsmith some suggestions, Oni.
Not long ago, I was one of the speakers at a film festival that featured primates and travel. (Go figure.)
My speech was mostly serious, perhaps too serious, so I added a few jokes. Not having great experience with this type of thing, NOR knowing in advance the type of audience I would have, I DREADED that the few jokes would fall flat. To my great surprise and relief, they killed. It was intoxicating.
I know I don't have the talent or perhaps even the guts to do stand-up for a living, but I can understand why some people do it.
