Below is the latest The Pain -- When Will It End?
All of the fashions depicted in this cartoon (with the exception
of the 'Mix and Match') were personally seen by me during my winter's tenure
in New York City--yes, including the waxed paper cup strapped over the nose,
worn by the worst-smelling man in the world, who sat across the aisle from
me on the F train from Brooklyn one day. He smelled like cat sex. Everyone
staggered out of the train car at the next stop and lunged, gasping for breath
and laughing and looking at each other like "oh, man" at
the next stop.
The most fun part of this cartoon for me was writing in airheaded
This cartoon has since been used by a sort of thrift/fashion
magazine called Cheap Date,one of whose editors I ran into at a bar called
Siberia one afternoon. "Are you interested in fashion?" she asked
me. "No," I admitted. Hopefully they will invite me to one of their
issue release parties, which are attended by pretty models.
