Here are a few more CTH strips that have caught my eye since I published my original Close To Home post.
(Dec. 12, 2011)
Let me explain what you’re looking at: That BIG car is supposed to be ABOVE that SMALL car, even though it sort of looks like it is in the BACKGROUND, to the LEFT of the small car. Also, TRAINS are apparently only FOUR FEET TALL and locomotives are only the LENGTH OF AN AUTOMOBILE. Railroad crossing barriers are BIG ENOUGH TO DRIVE UNDER, and wide enough for one to cross both lanes of traffic while the other is JUST SORT OF OVER SOME GRASS NEXT TO THE ROAD FOR SOME REASON. Oh, and people who drive cars and trains DON’T HAVE LOWER TORSOS OR LEGS. Lastly, the motion lines around the big car indicate that it is SUSPENDED IN MIDAIR, SHAKING. You’re welcome.

Here, let me explain this comic strip to you: You see, there are these two explorers, right? Probably archeologists. One of them is standing on the edge of a canyon, and in the distance he can see his companion is being struck on the head by a caveman. But little does he know there’s a caveman behind him, too! Meanwhile, a stuffed reindeer stands almost off-panel, watching with its dead-eyed gaze. And in the distance, one can see what might possibly be large floating carrots or perhaps miniature tornadoes.
